Man, those ancient LotR mini's make me nostalgic. My first real entry into the hobby was the LotR miniatures game and I have all those in various appalling 'early try at painting' schemes!

The DKoK look bloody brilliant, as do the Hobbits from the Fellowship!

Personally I'm just struggling to get a decent lighting and photo deal going on for this month... :S

Wow, so many great entries this month!
Those Death Korps - fantastic stuff!

Anyhow, I got my chaos dwarfs finished!! This was the most fun I've had in a long time painting minis and it's nice to know that I can work to a deadline when I have to. I really love these sculpts but they are bloody hard to get in Australia - it costs like a million dollars in postage. I just lucked out with these guys on ebay...still, I'm really happy to get them finished in time! My favourite is the banner bearer.

Good luck to everyone and see you next month for 'Into the Breach'!

Awesome stuff this month! I love the hobbits. Hope everyone gets there stuff done.

I finished my two dungeon adventurers, Marian the Barbarian and Bandobras Burrows, for our new D&D campaign.
Marian is a book loving brute and Bandobras a guitar playing bard.

So, as expected I was lacking time, but I got two of the brothers done:

With two hours to go, I don't think I'm gonna get my entry done. I'm nearly finished with two of them but they're in no shape to be entered for this challenge. Disappointed in myself that I couldn't get the drive to finish them up in time but that's life.

Catch y'all in the next one, there are some seriously impressive entries once again this month and I look forward to the voting!

Lousy photos and certainly not up to the standard of the other entries, but it's something I guess.

As usual, I won't finish in time, but there are some really stunning entries here so good job to those who did.

You love the T-Rex. Its both a hero and a Villain in the first two movies. It is the "king" of dinosaurs. Its the best. You love your T-rex.
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.

God damn, Modock, that might be my favourite entry of yours yet. Sublime use of colour and those bases are beautiful.

You could put those paintjobs on an Infinity box and I wouldn't even question it being the official work!

Thanks a million, Para! The models are gorgeous and when I paint something I really like then I put some extra effort on top.
Took me a while to decide the color scheme for the K9. I'm happy with the result.

Some pretty cool entries coming in at the last minute. I guess I'd better put mine up too. Here are Taddeus the Purifier and his loyal minion Pious Vorne, ready to start exploring the mysterious Blackstone Fortress:

I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, and I had a lot of fun working on them. The camera, as usual, decided to make the gold metallics on Taddeus look really flat and uninspiring, but in real life I assure you they look better. Not sure what I need to do to make the photos turn out better, but I'm sure I can figure it out eventually. Looking forward to the voting!

I got caught up with schoolwork and projects at my job. My lord still has primer on him . I'll probably skip this coming month and finish him.

Well that was quick Chris and still very good quality, I didn't know Para had started doing speed painting lessons

Some really good final entries, its been nice to see them coming in rather than my normal mad panic of ingoring everything and getting what paint I can on the model.

PossumCraft, would love some bigger pics of that scene, looks like there are some really nice touches like the hair.

Superb again Modock, both models have come together really well

Good detail on the book there Zerg

Hope it's not too late yet - I was practising stuff from a photography guide to improve my pictures, and I accidentally managed to get some better photos of my entry...
Still got to work on focus and depth of field, but it's an improvement.

Here we are, with a heavy weapons team and their faithful chameleon spotter busy applying runes of protection to the shield of their autocannon in the swamp.
