Did a little on the Lord Relictor last night. Mainly layering up his armour and some of the smaller details. Wondering if I should just leave his parchment cloak off and leave him as is? He's quite a busy model as it is, so I don't think it'd hurt to leave it off. Apologies in advance for the photo quality, it was quite late!

As per usual I got sidetracked from my intended project.
I have been able to find a group that plays Dropzone Commander and as I never liked the look of my old UCM (they were some of my first resins and I didn't wash off the mould release agent...) I decided to repaint them. I tried out a new technique with these models. I used a white undercoat (which is something I haven't used for about 20 years) and the paint itself was heavily diluted and applied in 2-3 layers and then given 2 washes of heavily diluted flesh wash. I quite like the technique but the coverage is slightly patchy, I obviously need to work on getting a satisfactory dilution.


This is everything that I repainted.


This is everything including the medium dropships which I left as they were. This is about 1500 points (ish).

I have also decided to resurrect my old Plog and I will post more pics there.

Nice! Love the color scheme of these guys. They look natural yet somehow alien (besides the whole four-arm thing ) Mind sharing how you painted them? I'd love to give it a try for my own nids, slightly changed with some beetle-like rainbow sheen on the armor.

Nice job on the DZC. I always find painting anything below 28mm quite a weird experience. You have pulled off a nice balance of detail and overall scheme.

So, time for my end of month 1 photo (as I'm away after today):



Completed: 2 Razor Boars, 4 SDE Treasure Chests.

Not as much as I'd hoped, but getting myself in a position to start those chests was surprisingly touch - and I only started those four last night.

For next month, I'm going to be slightly more ambitious with my goals:
SDE - Remaining chests + 5 Boo Booty
IK: RPG - 4 Farrow Brigands
Misc. - Finish Garden of Morr wall segment; 6mm Fort from Leven Miniatures; Hermann's Tortoise from Oathsworn Miniatures

I won't be surprised if stuff is changed or added to that list as the month goes on, though.

Progress but on the wrong unit equally the last archer will be finished by the end of the month and next months unit will probably just require transfers although I've still got to design and print the sheet.......

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Since it's almost August, I'd like to announce my next pledge and I'd like to add finishing up my Mechanicus to my overall goal for this challenge in addition to Mantic stuff, Deepwars, Infinity, and MERCS. So, my August pledge will be to do 1 larger Deepwars figure, an Antipode Assault Pack, and a Thallax Meltagun Cohort.

First of my Danes finished, pretty happy with them. The minis are by Saxon Miniatures, pretty simple (some might say crude) sculpts, definitely in the gaming not display category, but that's reflected in the price. The shields are a mix of transfers and hand painted. Mounted on one penny pieces (UK), which are handily magnetic.







In game terms, this is two points of a Saga force. The next two points will be the elite troops, so just 8 figures plus the warlord to complete in this little starter force. That's my objective for August, plus I want to complete some Rohan troops I have had almost finished for a few weeks.

I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that I won't have my dread done by tomorrow. The primary reason is that I didn't finish it before I left for an extended weekend vacation. However the good news is that I'll finish it up and have it posted a day or two into August. Fingers crossed

Great work everyone else. Its inspiring to see people work hard and finish things that have been on their painting desk anywhere from a few weeks to a few years.

Best of luck to those getting any last minute work in today. I set myself a rather meagre goal this month of 5 Blood Angel Tactical Marines, managed to get them done this morning:



Luckily I was able to hit a fair few stretch goals, namely:

Captain Tycho
Lord Relictor
3 Stormcast Retributors
5 Liberators
Numinous Occulum.

Thanks Thraxas
Just got this unit finished last night and photographed today.

An Archer Troop completing a unit coincidentally selected because it did not require shield transfers. Next months pledge is a Knight Troop and a Pole-Arm Troop both of which just require shield decals.

While I had some delays, I was able to get one full squad complete. Between having to learn how to use transfers, waiting for Micro Sol and Set, and the dealing with high humidity, I made a ton of progress on my Demi company, but only one squad is fully complete:



I'm having a blast painting these old school marines. I think the early third edition models are in a sweet spot between the character of the early stuff and the high production values of the more modern models.

Wow, great job everyone.... this is a fantastic challenge and im stoked to see what everyone can do. Work has kicked the feth out of me this month, but I did finish off the Fists drop pod. I got a airbrush and this is my first model using it. I am not happy with the yellow on it. I had a good shade of yellow but I did say good enough, I thought well I can do a little better if I just do this...and....ugh...should of just left it as it was.

This was also the first time I tried to use the sponge method for weathering. I think I over did it a little but over all I am happy with it.











My next months pledge is going to be the Inq scale Witch Hunter Tyrus... or the Inq scale Brother Capt Atrimus I have done some converting on the Artimus so...maybe we will see where this goes...

Cant wait to see what happens next month everyone

The other entries for July are looking sharp and inspiring as well, good jorb!

On my end, I've almost managed to wrap up two Leman Russ tanks and the Stormsword (just need to tidy them up and do the decals), but I've been neck-deep in work these last few weeks and the coming two weeks to come, so I'm going to try and do my best to get them done before the end of this month, which should be possible with my official week off in two weeks time.

So yesssss, on the desk right now are..

- 2x Leman Russ tank
- Stormsword super-heavy tank
- Stormlord super-heavy tank

Some great work this month!

@FabricatorGeneralMike: I like the weathering on the pod. The yellow is more greenish than I'm used to seeing for Fists, but it really pops!

@Llamahead: Those archers are fantastically dark and gritty, perfect for old school empire.

@Josh: the Melniboneans are cool, very rich color scheme on some vintage models.

Sadly the only thing I managed to complete in July was the portable board I posted a couple of pages back, the 18th century skirmishers I started were sadly not finished because real life got in the way (curse you real life!!!). So hopefully I'll find the time to polish them off over the next week or so then see what I can rustle up from the lead pile.
