A Protoss colony world

I am probably going to have to bow out for this month. I've just had all my hobby time occupied with getting my Tau army ready for a big tournament, so I haven't had much time for the Poxwalkers, and I'm unlikely to finish them in 3 days considering I've still got a lot to do on the Tau.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 9/25/20, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~16000 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~900 | Space Wolves: ~3800
Astra Militarum: ~800 | Officio Assassinorum: ~600 | Imperial Knights: ~1300 | Sisters of Battle: ~1900
Check out my P&M Blogs: ZergSmasher's P&M Blog | Imperial Knights blog | Total models painted in 2019: 62 | Total models painted in 2020: 35 | Current main painting project: Indomitus Marines, as Dark Angels

Great work so far everyone good to seem some completed entrys. Everyone else keep going (especially you Felt )

Brilliant work Modock, great NNM on the hammer.

Very cool and scary Evil-D185, I thought that was some box art to start with

and I love your entry straken619, its just really really cool and well done

I think that level of grim perfectly suits a plague marine para, several thousand years tends to leave its mark on any armour.

I've had to go away for work at short notice so missed a few bits I would have liked to finish tomorrow but having to do the final pics now. Here you go and enjoy.

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.

Great eyes, Total!
I agree, that Freddy Krugrot is pretty awesome, MG...

Anyhow, here is my entry this month. I love these models. Despite being push-fit, they are just such cool poses. I've wanted to do the cloaked warden ever since he was first released.
The idea is that the warden is kinda the boss, with the zombie dragon, skellies and banshee all under his command.
Hope everyone likes it - I loved painting the skeletons especially.







Best of luck to everyone and see you next month!

Here are my finished pics of my Plague Marine. I must have done a decent job, as Grandfather Nurgle has seen fit to bestow a minor plague upon me in reward. Blegh.











Painting it was a completely different technique to anything I've ever done before. I used some AK Interactive weathering paints for the first time, so I was using white spirits for a start! It felt - and smelt - wrong. You get a highlight by washing the mini with the weathering paint, and then use a cotton bud and some white spirits to wipe the wash away from the areas of highlight. You can also create streaks by running a brush with just white spirits on down the area you've washed. It's amazing stuff, I really reccommend it. The ones I used were Streaking Grime and Streaking Rust.

The base was fun to make. I'll do a quick tutorial as people might find it a useful way to make nurgley swamp base. What I did was first glue a thin bit of cork to the base, along with the obligatory skulls. I then covered the cork and the base itself (but not the skulls) with white PVA glue. I added a few mustard seeds to create a bit of interest (you can see this better in the phone pic I took, posted below - they look like a small cluster of testicles in a Nurgle holy symbol.) I then dripped superglue into the PVA glue before it dried. Use liquid superglue for this rather than gel, and cheap glue at that. Don't use your £6 bottle of Gorilla superglue for this! As the superglue hits the PVA glue it starts to dry, in weird fibrous ways. I stirred this around with a cocktail stick to make the mossy effects. I tried not to cover the skulls too much. I then got a little pot of water, and dripped some superglue into it. Superglue starts to dry immediately in water. It creates a small gloopy blob, which i fished out with another cocktail stick. Using two cocktail sticks, I manipulated it into a sort of rope. I dropped this onto the base, and it became the entrails by his foot.

Painting it was pretty simple. I Primed it black, blobbed on some Dryad Bark and Death World Forest, allowing it to mix together on the base quite a bit, forming a greeny-brown base with some variation in colours. Then it was just a case of drybrushing with Deathworld Forest, another drybrush with Nurgling Green, a wash over the whole thing with Agrax Earthshade, then re-drybrushing with the Nurgling green, and a final one with a mix of Nurgling Green and Flash Gitz Yellow. The entrails were basecoated Screamer Pink and very roughly highlighted with Bugman's Glow. These got washed with the Agrax as well. I then finished it off with some Nurgles Rot and Blood For The Blood God. It sounds like a lot of steps, but each one is a matter of a few seconds. You're creating chaos so there's absolutely no point being precious about it. Leaving out the drying time of the Argax Earthshade the whole thing took about ten minutes, of which half was probably painting the skulls and the testicles. (GW's Testicle beige, with a wash of Slaanesh's Nutsack, and a highlight of Guilliman's Glorious Ballbag.)

Phone pic with better view of the base. Para, please don't include the below pic as one of my final pics, it was a WIP shot.

See previous comment about how your Plague Marine would totally overshadow mine and you had nothing to worry about! That's absolutely brilliant.

Thanks mate! It's a bit nerve wracking doing something you haven't done before, but I had some good guides and an idea of what I wanted to do. I definitely had some of your pieces in mind, as I wanted there to be a bit of implied narrative to it.

Some amazing models here this month, everyone really well done! Just throwing my pics and gotta run to a Halloween party! Presenting Hive Fleet Behemoth "Broodlord" class Genestealer Alpha-Beast. Believed to be related to the Patriarch of the Genestealer Cult of the Crimson Serpent, this specimen has been codified as "Prince" by the Magos Biologos.

My favorite villain from the Spiderman comics: Hobgoblin!

I've never used more different parts on one model:

Front part hood: Mantic Skeletons
Back part hood: Harlequin Solitaire
Face: Daughters of Khaine/Sisters of Slaughter
Front part torso: Empire Greatswords
Back part torso/cloak: Shadow Warriors
Arms: Shadow Warriors
Hands: Corpuscarii Electro-Priests
Waist/legs: Black Ark Corsairs
Glider: Hellions + Chaos Marauders shoulder pad + flail

This resulted in a lot of conversion work. After posting the WIP pic, merging everything together had only just begun. So my entry for this month has a pretty basic paintjob, (mainly basecoats and washes) because there wasn't anymore time left. I do kinda like this look, since it resembles the look of the comics back in the 90's (not much "depth" in the graphics). Hopefully you can still recognise the small red spider on the base. You know what kind of hint that is.

Well congrats to everyone who participated! I enjoyed following this contest thread but unfortunately I simply didn't have the gumption to finish the Imperial Fists Captain. Just couldn't get back into after being illegally evicted, and fired for hurting myself at work. I got a little too much on my plate and well, I have to be in the right headspace to paint. Once I get settled again I'll finish him up and share him.

Also, my lack of a decent camera and any sort of lighting box means whatever pics I do upload will be blurry and useless.



Gets along better with animals... Go figure.

Aw, thanks! Haha, it's really not so bad. More of a nuisance than anything else. I'm pretty well back on track now, I'm more upset about not finishing the mini than anything else!

Anyways, great work folks. The slew of finished models in the last few pages make it really hard to vote!

I especially like the DG mini with the weathering paint and the Skelly diorama.

So, I actually finished Zarakynel/The Violet Heart, but when I got back home to take a pic before the 7 p.m. Eastern deadline, the paint had sort of... bubbled? away from Her.

I don't know how to explain it. It looks like a wall where water has gotten behind the paint.

No idea what the [Expletive Deleted] that's all about, but She's basically ruined.

oof...that's a real shame man
hmm...did you give the resin a good wash/scrub before you painted it?...if not, the paint could have pulled away from the mould release agent coating the resin as it dried and shrunk slightly...that's the only cause I can think of...a pic might help with diagnosis though.

...it's good to be green!

I'm at work, but I'll get one up when I'm home.

My internet sleuthing makes me think I probably didn't wash Her well enough, even though I gave Her two separate and lengthy baths/scrubs. The only problem with that is that She was primed for days and days without any problem before I put other paint on Her. Then, within twelve hours, She gets Leprosy.

So I really don't know.

EDIT - Hi to Leicester. I went to law school there and was a Phat Kat for three years. How goes it? Is Gift for Geeks still there?
