The Salty Dwarf is born pt. 1

As we wrap up and think back on our first ever Salty Dwarf. I am happy to say that the event was a success. We are happily planning out how we will be able to make the next event even more successful.
While preparing for our competition we did a lot of thinking about how can we make this a cool and successful event. First on the docket was to have an awesome name. As we bounced ideas off of each other idea of The Salty Dwarf was conceived. Through some further research we were able to determine that you all like your trophies.
With that in mind I grabbed a box of super sculpey firm, a few sculpting tools, and decided to give sculpting a go... Keep in mind I have never sculpted anything other than random details on figs...  Ill walk you through how this uber newb stumbled and bumbled along with a project.  Hopefully it is somewhat helpful to some of you.

1. Here I began by making what vaguely looks like a head and neck.

My first... Demo Table!!

One of the things I enjoy most about this hobby is the chance to try new painting techniques, games, lists, terrain techniques... generally I like to try new "things". This means that at least every other week or so I am doing something for the first time. So I've decided to do a recurring article that focuses on these activities whatever they may be.
The first set of posts will most likely be related to today's. My First Demo Table!
It begins...

Recap of the Salty Dwarf

Over the weekend we took part in judging a painting competition in the Ogden area. The Salty Dwarf is an open painting competition that was held at the same time as the Inter Mountain Cup Warmachine/Hordes tournament and turned out to be a big success. Along with the Salty Dwarf crew we also had famed author Larry Correia who also came to guest just the entries.

Here is how the day went down.
