So I'm in this month with at least a couple of Deathwatch, proof:



And a little bit of work-in-progress, pretty much finished Stentor Pranus:



If I get chance, I may add a couple more marines to the squad, but at this point in the month it's unlikely

I haven't gotten much done myself.

I forgot to actually clean the models (of mold release) before I assembled them so they're going ot get a quick dunk in my vat of purple power. And hopefully not need reassembly after.

it's been fairly reasonable here, I might be able to actually spray prime them later for once (which would be nice)

Given certain recent events *cough*Gathering Storm*cough* , I found it appropriate to paint another Chaos Space Marine for my Remnants warband... which fits in nicely with this month's challenge

Here's the proof pic for my entry, say hello to Galgar, one of the infamous Fallen and evil bastard extraordinaire:


I'm wondering if I should give him a bigger base though...

If the rest of your army is on those bases, just run with it. But he is crowding that one pretty bad; a larger base would suit him.

This guy was a lot of fun to paint, and my terrible photos don't do it justice (to be fair, I did use a pair of iPhone 6s for lighting, so that could be it). Im also much better at painting dark colours, as I prefer painting battle-worn minis, and it was nice to get a break from painting red.

That's it from me! Until next month.

Progress!

The leviathan's more or less done, just need to add transfers, weather and base it.

WIP:
Spoiler:


Work on this one was pretty glacial, spent a lot of time hemming and hawing over placement of hazard stripes etc. The other two should be far quicker given that I already have a concrete plan for them.

Ooh that looks nice, I've been resisting the leviathan for a while now, but seeing it in Iron is testing my resolve.

I've been working on the Fallen Angel some more, he's pretty much finished apart from his base (which I've decided to keep as-is, that way he fits with the rest of his buddies in the army)

Here's a few pics of him:

Wow, some great stuff coming in already!

Blown away with Paradigm's speed and quality and loving DanceOfSlaanesh's model - that shoulder pad is brilliant.
On top of that, we seem to have a 'Vulkan-off'!

Anyhow, dunno if I will get all of these finished to add to the original two, but thought I better post a proof pic just in case.

Then comes along the frakking Spinosaurus who kills the T-rex, and the movie says "LOVE THIS NOW! HE IS BETTER" But...in your heart, you love the T-rex, who shouldn't have lost to no stupid Spinosaurus. So you hate the movie. And refuse to love the Spinosaurus because it is a hamfisted attempt at taking what you loved, making it TREX +++ and trying to sell you it.

Its very interesting to see how varied the entries are even when its focused down to SMs.

I like how yours in coming along Jamesy, you have some nice colour changes on the Axe.

Well done on finishing EmberlordofFire8, I've been debating getting that model. I might just have to now.

Manalishi - Very cool, the Yellow and black strips really work on those large areas.

Cheers MG. I tried something new on the axe, I painted the red beneath, then, when it was dry flooded the panel with black ink and used an empty brush to draw it off the edges. Quick edge highlights and it was done

Can't believe you guys are finishing up some of your entries already. (Think I need to sell the kids. Oh and the wife for that matter.) Loving all the entries so far. Will post some WIP pics as soon as I actually get to do some. Good job so far though guys.

Esteemed Veteran Space Marine






Northumberland, England

Well, I got caught up paiting an ORS Heavy Cruiser for Halo: Fleet battles, so I'm a little late, but here's my entry. I had thought of doing a Tu'Shan conversion but the eBay sellers lacked the parts I wanted to do him justice. So instead I've had to settle for a boring continuation of my last entry - two more Salamanders. A Mk III Sergeant and another Mk IV in VHA. Dull, I know, but I had a lot of fun last month so I though a boring entry was better than none at all!

Proof:



Good luck all - there's some canny looking entries this month!

crystal, mn

I gave up on the wolfking. as i was gluing him together, his axe split in four pieces, his gun went flying somewhere.. half his helm also went flying though this landed in the garbage.. So i just chucked him, still have all the sled parts. ill do something else with it later. For now, Im going to figure out who the 5th guy will be to go with the Fallen Conclave. The librarians are good still, just need their bases done.

Wow some great work going on!

I've got mine basecoated finally.

Honestly kinda wishing I'd pick something with a better colour scheme than Iron Hands, black and grey is kinda boring :( but maybe I can jazz it up more on the special units etc. Until then, just trying to get a good covering on the black.
