Great stuff especially those Hellblasters Zergsmasher and I've got a soft spotfor Old school beastmen Josh.

Old school Beastmen are what got me into this hobby, along with an article in a magazine that may have been White Dwarf which had rules for building a Chaos Warband (and also, I think, something about some kind of post apocalyptic car game). I've never found that particular issue of whatever magazine it was again but have always wanted to.

Anyway looking good everyone! I love that Iron Warrior, Azazelx, Llamahead you must be nearly finished with the Zombicide stuff?

I have a week or so to complete a unit for this month. It will probably end up being the old "single model as a unit" chestnut. I've actually been building and painting non stop, but it's all stuff for other people...

Sounds like WD102-103-ish to me.

Anyway, I figure the Orks I've finished recently justify a "unit" by now.

Emphasised the "Troll" rather than the "Zombie" in this he also may well double as Throggif I ever go back to Warhammer.

That's one messed up critter, Llama!

Lovely Stormcast, Taaloc. I'm still waiting on my Shadespires, I guess I may have to shoehorn in those figures to my paint queue so I can play the game.

Also, here's another unit done. Plague Marines in the service of the Iron Warriors.

Great job everyone , unfortunately my Onitober changed into Flocktober and then fizzled into nothing.

I made a few buckets of flock

There’s two more of this size bucket, each about half full of slightly different colored flock.

Also made fall colors


And then made some topiary.

Don't knock it Thephony been making some coarser scatter from cheap sponges myself and swamp terrain from cheap paint brushes inspired by your work. Here's October.

Lovely Dread there, Azazelx, that and the character you posted before are really quite inspirational.

With a supreme effort of will I dragged myself back to the wolf project for a bit (not because I don't want to do it, because I really, really, do, I'm just swamped at the moment) and rushed out this chap, who I'm not sure makes much sense in lore or in colour scheme but I honestly don't have the time/can't be bothered to pore over all the new stuff to figure out the whys and wherefores

Thanks Taaloc - the Primaris Wolf Priest looks very nice. I'm sure we'll have rules for them (or close) soon enough. I can't imagine Wolves going too long without their own codex in the new year.

Great stuff guys. Novembers off to a fine start with me.

Grunts or is that Groans? Some basic modifications to amuse me.

Witch to also fill in as a Frostgrave Apothecary.

I'm also hoping to get a few more survivors done than last month.

I've almost managed to finish a new squad of Primaris Intercessors but they are a cautionary tale in making sure your lighting is sufficient- painted them using just normal lighting rather than my daylight bulb because I was painting in the house instead of my shed and when I got them under my normal lamp the number of mistakes was unreal. Still, may not have a chance to fix them for a while so will finish the bits I've started and hopefully upload later.

In the meantime, some Shadespire Skeletons. I love the character of these models and I'm thinking of getting another set to use as Individuals/unit champions for my KoW Undead

Very nice stuff, guys. I just got my skellies, but like all my Shadespire stuff, it sits unopened right now. Work is unrelenting at the moment, so when I get a few quiet moments to paint, I just work on the stuff clogging my desk.

Lovely Skellingtons. Hmm Shadespire is something I'm a bit meh about I'm not a huge fan of games with hugely specific model requirements prefering to have the ability to adapt the game to my collection. Those crew look excellent Josh.

Mutantz

I converted these slightly partly to have every model an individual partly to use these as mutant cultists with my Beastmen which was actually part of my justification to back Black Plague

Nice work, Llama. I appreciate making each model a unique individual. I'm much the same with lots of things in my collection.

Seems I forgot to put these guys in:



Only one was recently painted, though I did some touch-up work on sections of the other two. More here.

Xuxa the Unpronounceable first

then more Zombies

including a Hooker

and the Abominalpha

Could have done with a more contrasty tone between the flayed skins and the creatures skin.

Novembers pledge though is satisfying

Probably won't finish by the end of the challenge hoping to finish in January.
