Scrap never looked so good, a brilliant variety of pieces and all very well done.
Makes me wish that I'd spent more time on mine.

And congrats to Skalk, for running such a fantastic contest .

So I sat down to whip up my scrap pile tonight and then discovered that I was running a little late.. Ah well next time perhaps.

Some incredible junk piles though fellas, many of them I would be proud to have lifesize ones in my back yard!

I am astounded by the level of imagination and creativity here, though I suppose I shouldn't be, everyone worked hard to put these together. So cool to see them all in one place.

I have some thoughts on a fave, but the competition is tough!

Damn some of you guys sure have impressive junk! everyone's done brilliant jobs with both creative planning and painting, I can see one or two i'm thinking will take out the comp already! love some of the effects of rust and dirt and the use of random bits has given a real test for us to play with scale etc.

Thanks Skalk for thinking a little left of centre and holding something like this! :-) I had a good time doing something a little different (which you'll all see when he gets my pic up lol!) stretched myself out of my comfort zone, not enough to take out the title I don't think as i'm too controlled with my modeling but I learnt and had a ball! and congrats to everyone else who entered! it's things like this that keeps us off the streets doing hold ups!

I know I am not going to win, but it was REALLY FUN to make this piece. I will take my moral victory in being the only submitter to make a junk pile in the middle of an overgrown field.

OKAY. These all deserve comments, and I'm going to do my best. Sorry if they're a little brief, but there are a hell of a lot of you!

@Briancj - Very atmospheric, the static grass adds a lot. Like the hazard stripes!

@Maede - Beautiful painting, as always. The weathering on the wall is really realistic (I'd love a tutorial!), and the different rust tones really sell the piece. Especially love the weathering on the painted metal surfaces!

@Nerdfest09 - Where did you find all those tesla coils?! Really like the glow effect, and the spots of ?molten metal are really well painted. Really keen to know what that machine did before it got junked

@OneManNoodles - Great idea using the walkway for height! Lovely detailing with the pipes and wiring. I particularly enjoy the weathering on the white supports and the red panel, plus the computer is a nice touch. Very 80s, I'm not surprised they chucked it out!

@Chelnov - Really enjoyed the smiley face, though it looks sore! Great choice of bits - looks very natural as a pile of rusted wreckage. Really sold by the differing rust tones too.

@Dr. H - Such a shame that you can only see one side of this, I really like the shelter aspect round the back, and you really need to see it in 3D to appreciate that. Love your choice of bits, very eclectic and hard to identify. The ?hose is a good stripe to break up the brown, and I really like the weathering on the end of the horizontal pipe - looks very realistic for something that's been sawed through and dumped. Ace!

@hk1x1 - Really creative use of junk! I'm struggling to identify any of the parts that make him up, and they really look like they fit together as part of a whole. I feel a little bad that he's been junked! What's the story there?

I'll get through the rest either after dinner or tomorrow, but amazing job all round!

Thanks Scarper. There are more angles incoming (so hang in there people ).

Hose, heavy electrical cable, it can be whatever you want it to be (much like the rest of it). I wanted to show that it has weight to it by the deforming of the roll of "metal fence" (or whatever you want it to be...) and yeah, that, the shiny metal piece and the graffiti were to break up the rust.

Funny you should say about the pipe looking sawn through, as that''s what I did (together with a little pliers work) to it to get the inside out...
Most of the junk was chosen due to it being damaged in one way or another and that's why they've ended up on a scrap heap.

I may do what you're doing at some point, once I've had a chance to have a good look through.

Ok, so comments on the Lords and Exalted Champs first:

LORDS:

Brian - Absolutely loving the overgrown look, obvious when you think about it, but none of the rest of us went that route. Also keen on the beaten appeaance of the large panel in the centre. And kudos for the scavenge hunt vid too.

Meade - Been blown away by your rust before, no exception here, and the weathered concrete is superb. Your terrain certainly counts amongst the most realistic I've ever come across.

Nerd - Great concept, lovely effects on the molten metal. Nice to see a very different colour palette here compared to most of the rest of us, visually very striking.

Noodles - Another nice concept, great use of the vertical plane. And obvious kudos for the old-skool computer. Liking the use of colours here too, especially the way the green and the red get used in both the upper and lower sections.


EXALTED CHAMPS:

Chelnov - Wonderful rust work, great tonal changes in there. And great job with the smiley face, great little 'extra'.

Dr H - More great rust (I know, there's a lot of that in this review), nicely broken up with the graffiti. And the junk shelter was a nice idea.

hk1x1 - Fantastic job of bringing the disparate pieces together to look like one rusted old piece. And another interesting take on the whole idea. Will be checking out your blog to see more of this.

graven - Definitely liking yours for the story it tells. I like that the fleur helps to tie it in with your existing scenery, and just loving the price list. Some nice rust on the gears too.

Moltar - Like this for the fact that not everything is rusted up, there's still a variety of colour here, although beaten and weathered certainly. Looks like random stuff acculmulating over time, but not too long a period. Gives me a chance to say something other than 'nice rust' too.

monkeytroll - Junk

Rabid Ferret - Huge fan of the weathering on the yellow and blue pieces, beautiful stuff. Really like what you did with the pipe and the goo too.

Theo - Nice little body dump. There's a nice texture to the iron and the spring, and the body bags and the sign give it a little story.


Aspirirng Champs and Cultists I'll come back to, probably tomorrow now.

Apologies fo the brevity as Scarp said Once I've done the rest I may come back to attempt some criticisms too - just need to find some worth mentioning first......

Okay, let's hear it for the Aspiring Champs and Cultists:

Apiring Champs:

Andy T - More nice rust colours, some interesting bits, especially like the wire grid, good use of blue to break up the rust.

Camkierhi - Now that's a junk pile. Varied assortment of bits, nice variety of colours. Like the blue wire in the middle, stands out nicely, and good use of the zinge sprue - I've been thinking that would make a good sign outside a manufactorum for a while now. And always enjoy a zog off

daemonhunter - Love the burnt wood effect on the crate,very nice, and the blown open pipes.

hdbbstephen - Another great idea, junk pile as a nurgle shrine! Effective rusting on the drop-pod edges, and nice work on the oil drum.

jedi76 - Yet more nice rusty bits of metal, and love the two gas canisters, they look great.

Littletower - And another slightly different take on the idea. Using the fence was a great idea, a whole line of these across the table would look great. Excellent barbed wire too.

Scarp - Brilliant idea with the bus stop, fits beautifully into your world, and wonderfully executed. Big fan of the graffiti.

sennacherib - Good use of the vertical space, and some lovely corrosion on the green. Nice idea to have that gubbins extending out of the pipe, and of course the body.

weety - Great job in making the pieces look like one unit, your usual excellent paint work, and damn, you put that together fast!


Cultists:

Desubot - Love the various appliances, classic junk pile ingredients. And I thought the sink was pre-made till I checked out your blog. Nice wood effect too.

Gawdam Sumbish - More classic ingredients, cone, matress and pallet all great, big fan of the pallet particularly. Nice use of colours to break it all up too.

GrimDork - My meks would love a junk portal, fantastic idea! Great sense of junk pouring out, and like the torn up floor where it all lands. (Unless it's going the other way of course)

Llama - Great use of junk bits as always from you - just suprised not to notice a rawl-plug or two in the mix. Nice that it's a semi-organised pile rather than just randomly placed.

Snrub - Building a barricade out of junk - another nice idea that will look great on the table. Well placed touch of copper to break up the colour as well.


Phew, impressive work guys, well done to all.
Looking forward to Skalk's decisions in each category, going to be a tough choice. And nice bits of terrain for everyone's table

Hard to find criticisms on these, but I'll try and come up with something over the next few days, after all it's not the praise that helps us grow as modellers and painters.
