Looking good yorkright, are the headlights supposed to be emitting white light or do they need painting? Yellow contrast or tesseract glow over what you have would help the headlights pop i think.

Yeah, this is going to be a cracking round! As a reminder to anyone not familiar with the schedule, there's no vote for October as it's the annual Halloween round, so get your spookiest minis reasy for that! It's always a good'un.

Until then, I'll join Rybrook's biker in defending Baal with this Leviathan Dreadnought. I'd had this beast sitting on my desk for a while unable to work up either the courage or the inspiration to tackle it, until last week I saw a video from Trovarion Miniatures on Youtube on grimdark Blood Angels. The process in that video (link below for the curious) was just the right mix of effective, quick and forgiving, with lots of stippling and sponging to build up texture and highlights at once, and was just the kick up the backside I needed to get some paint on this monster of a mini. Most of the work was done in one looong day of painting red and black, and the rest finished in short bursts over the last few days as I raced the deadline of an impending house move next week... 'fun' times...



Pretty damn pleased with it in the end thpugh, given the circumstances and my initial trepidation. Big thanks to Rybrook for the transfers, they really helped bring it to life...or whatever the equivalent is for a half-dead Marine in a 20ft tall war-coffin...

The aforementioned video that inspired this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlf_j8CB-3k

Got some more work done.

The Boss Fight is just about finished:



I made good progress on the PC's tonight:



I screwed up the Tengu's armor and had to paint over it with black and try to fix it. Looks much better than it did about 90 minutes ago.

I have decided to enter the Dark Judges in the October challenge, so the Chaos Warriors will be my entry for this month:







It was really hard to decide which six images to submit...

Still work in progress but could I get some feedback on the light placements on the hammer? First time trying nmm on something that isnt a sword so not really sure where the reflections should be going.

Great looking pics everyone, love that dread para and the other smash biker looks fantastic too!

Slow progress. I’m aiming for a warm-white robe with a cool-white tabard, but it’s not there yet.



@Captain Brown: What colour did you use to do the “black” on the bodies of those wraithguard? I’m trying to do a similar effect on Deathwatch.

Thank you, they is a thin layer of yellow paint the picture doesn’t show it. I may go back and brighten it up.

Urgh, unfortunately i'm not feeling it this month.....too much to do and going through a divorce at the same time (Which is all good and fine, just sucked my mood a bit) isn't a good combo so i'll have to bow out of this round.

Still a bit to go and running out of month. Still need to ink the arms and do all the edge highlighting. Plus final assembly, cleanup, decals and bases. We’ll see how much i can get done over the weekend.
