What's Nerdcademy?....... WHAT"S NERDCADEMY!!!! ........ WHAT"S NERDCADEMY?....... WHAT"S NERDCADEMY!?



OMG!! it's ONLY the greatest painting competition overshadowed only by Golden Daemon

it's just a little annual painting comp I like to hold each year to get a bit of a laugh and get others to push themselves to try thing they don't usually do when painting I offer up 3 prizes, 1st is the Nerdcademy award which is a likeness of myself which in previous years ive been in a bathtub and in a toilet, second prize is usually more normal like an actual model/poster etc. and 3rd is always something silly....... you'll get it later........


now, this is a weird little update which I think some of you will really love I've got a mate who works in a local store called Birchalls, which is kind of a book and hobby shop that has a strong Geek collectors vibe in one part and he has used this to his advantage and amassed a collection of statues and figurines worth thousands upon thousands of dollars like every McFarlane figure and those amazing Predator models about 1 1/2 ft high!!!

anyway, he just scored two 'statues' and wanted me to paint one of the copies for him and of course I couldn't say no. especially as he generously gave me a box of Boyz to say thanks I haven't started the statue yet but thought i'd show you and get some reaction!






And a little teaser from my teaser Green 2015? I assembled a Kommando boy and made him a little beret gave him a cool backpack and primed him then washed him so I can paint him SQUEEEEEEE!





Until tomorrow dudes! more sharkies and stuffs!

For reals though, after playing catch up for a few pages I'm certainly not disappointed Damo!

Well, how about I keep you up to date with some other stuff first

how about I show a little progress on the Sharks? I have now got all of them with all their colours based in and washed, next up is simply adding the highlights to each set of colour shouldn't take long to see some real progress next session. any advice or ideas for them let me know

I took a pic of each one even though they're not finished as a group shot just didn't feel like it was clear enough.











And something I wanted to how you for ideas and opinions you know how next year is Green 2015 for me? well, I painted up a test mini for my Ork Kommando themed force this is the level all the models will be painted to and they'll mostly have a cute little beret added. i'd love some ideas for them to work on? i'm thinking ww2 style bikes and a lot of 80's action movie influence? I want every single Ork to have a real sense of personality to them and i've already line up a few bits for conversions and making models!







Thanks for your input (in advance )

What a good looking group of hackin and slashin dudes.

Green15 looks like it will be promising too. Are your plans to just do orks, or mostly do orks? Would be a shame to see the HG die out before they really get started.
