Fully Painted Eldrad Give-away and Horror Brain Progress

Hello fellow scratchbuilders/hobby enthusiasts!  Welcome back to Scratchbuilt 40k.  Today I decided it has been a long time since I did a giveaway for you fine folks who have been reading my blog over the last couple years.  As such, I'm announcing I am giving away this model here-


As you can see, it's the old metal Eldrad Ulthran model.  I love how he turned out, but I don't see myself using him again.  I think he's fairly well painted, so it would be a shame for him not to be used by someone.

So how do you get to be the lucky owner of this model?  It's really easy.  All you have to do is follow the blog and leave a comment below.  You can say "Entered!" or "It's nice I suppose" or any other thing you want to say.  Just be sure you are following the blog by clicking the button at the "People Who Like Scratchbuilt 40k" at the upper right side of the page and leave a comment so I know you are interested.  On the 31st I'll tally up the names of those interested and have a name selected randomly.

Right, with that out of the way, here is the progress on the brains I'll be using as Horrors of Tzeentch so far-



I have 20 of these painted but only 10 of them on the bases so far.  I'm still waiting on the pieces I'll be using as a sort of 'psychic shield', but when I do get them it will hopefully add something special to the model.  Overall I'm very pleased with how they turned out so far!

Well, that's it for this week.  Good luck and I hope to have a good number of entrants!

    1. For such an old model, Eldrad is still a great sculpt. I'm really digging the brains too :)

  4. Eldrad has peered into the future and sees his home in my craftworld. Lovely paint job. The brains have the inner zombie in me coming out.

    1. Thanks Ken! The marble effect was actually easier to do than I had anticipated. The effect really pleased me as well. Good luck in the contest!

  9. I love the bird (eagle? phoenix?) on his cloak. It would make a very good incentive to get my wife back to painting the Eldar army she has sitting mostly in boxes.

    Nice brains - I would love to see them fighting against a Typhus list!

    1. Yeah, was going for a phoenix. That there took a lot of repainting to get right! If you do win I hope it does inspire your wife to finish that Eldar army! Good luck!

  12. Excellent model, excellent paint job.
    I have recently got back into painting and this would go great with my 15-20 year old models.

    1. Welcome back to the painting aspect of the hobby! Always good to hear someone is picking up the brush after a long hiatus. Good luck to you!

  14. I'm entering, also since I assume you're doing a tzeentch army based on the brains in futurama will the changer of the ways be a giant brain?

    1. I am doing a Tzeentch army with the brains, though I admit I didn't see that Futurama episode! I had thought about what else I could do for the army and I'll be revealing the grand plans on Sunday night's blog post. Originally it was to be a giant brain for the Lord of Change, but I decided on something better theme-wise!

      Good luck, Declan and stay tuned for Sunday's post ;)

    1. Dok, you're late! The contest deadline was the 31st of March, I'm afraid. Don't worry, though, I am planning on more give-aways in the near future!
