Warploque Miniatures is run by Alex Huntley who practically single handedly (hand) sculpts and paints his range of miniatures for the now revised 2nd edition Arcworlde skirmish miniatures game.
Helping Alex are his Mum Dawn, who sorts all the orders and posting of those lovely models and his dad Rob who does all the resin casting.
When you see the Dragons, Trolls and other monsters all cast in resin, you have to admit that Rob's casting is some of the best in the business.

The weekend would consist of painting workshops and tutorials. Basing tutorials - how to use greenstuff to sculpt basing additions as well as sneak peeks at forthcoming miniature sculpts and designs as well as being able to play as many games as you want on a number of fantastically put together gaming boards.
On the Sunday there would also be a painting competition with a couple of category's. Category One: Miniatures that had been painted before the weekend event. Category Two: Miniatures Painted over the weekend event and Category Three: International submissions (this was done by submissions on the ArcWorlde Facebook group)
I spent most of Saturday playing a few small games and a large game using my Albionnican Humans taking on a Forest Dragon (I'll be doing a separate post on that game) but I did spend a small amount of time on starting to paint an Albionnican Ogre and finally finished thjs model on the Sunday in time for the painting competition.
I was really pleased with the paint-job I did on the Ogre Model, trying a few new techniques that I don't usually do whilst painting (I don't find painting that enjoyable anymore, mostly down to injuries causing pain) but unfortunately I didn't win anything as the standard of models submitted was extremely high.

Overall I had a fabulous time during the event. It's great catching up with old friends and making new one's and most of all having fun with all aspects of the hobby we love and enjoy.
Here's to the next event!
