As some of you are aware, the Throne of Skulls tournament at Warhammer World has a competition for best army list - most importantly, the best army list settles any ties for best in race.

Here is my flayed skin army list:

Flayed Skin Army List BC7B55CE-8286-4DFF-90F8-BF7DEEBBA37F-5868-000001844C34C235

It started life as a piece of A4 plain paper, coffee, water, old bronzed flesh and vallejo carmine red went into it. It was dried with a hair dryer and then ironed flat. I used a border made by Eye of Error and typed up my army list in an italic, red font to look like blood. Paper went into the printer and vects your uncle. To finish up it was cut into and then stitched together - aiming for sections that were a different shade and hue so that it looks like an amalgamation of different skin.

(I have to confess, the ideas were mine but the execution was my girlfriends, I mean me.... sew.....?)

That is insane. Insane as in 'insanely cool'! The only thing I could have thought of to make it even better, is to actually write the list with dark red ink and by hand. The computer font does take away a little of its credibility, if I'm honest.

But that's not to say that the whole concept isn't super creative and well done. If I ever go to a tournament, this is what I'll do! Smile

Looks fantastic!!! Everything looks good, but I think the stitching is the real icing on the cake. I've seen coffee stained paper and the like before but the stitching...brilliant idea and execution. The print could be a darker red (blood dries dark) to make reading easier; but it may just be the photo or my monitor that makes the printing look light. Another thought may be a faded background tattoo on the 'skin', but really not necessary and it may actually be distracting so...
I can't imagine other submissions topping this. Hope it goes well for you.

In the event of a tie I'm going to put my money on that list to swing it for you! ABSOLUTELY SUPERB!

I think that only one common Internet phrase will serve here: Epic win.

Thanks very much everyone for the compliments - it didn't win best army list, someone had made a ton of imperial artefacts etc which were awesome.

I'll probably do it again for the next one, could go all out and do it in the style of one of the tabards.

That's gorgeous! If I may be so bold as to recommend an improvement to an artifact I could never have managed on my own, if you have the patience and the steady hand for it, you could go over the printed text with a little darker brownish red in order to make it look more like dried blood and more hand written.
