As it was my Birthday in July I got myself some of the newer DZC stuff.

2 troops of Katana light tanks


2 Crossbow lasers and their Raven dropships


Pheonix Command Gunship


Everything that I have painted this month, probably around 2000 points worth there.

I'm pretty sick die to a horrible midwinter cold. I finished a small amount of stuff from my mandatory pics but they still need to be varnished before I can photograph them. I'll also get the latest photos up asap - hopefully this coming weekend. I can't even see them right now due to workblocked.

@FabricatorGeneralMike: I like the weathering on the pod. The yellow is more greenish than I'm used to seeing for Fists, but it really pops!

@Llamahead: Those archers are fantastically dark and gritty, perfect for old school empire.

@Josh: the Melniboneans are cool, very rich color scheme on some vintage models.


Ty for that... the weathering really didnt come out in the pics...it looks much heavier irl. Maybe it was the light i used but it doesnt look that green irl again.

I am a total nub when it comes to taking photos of minis.. oh well you only learn by doing and failing over and over and over

Been a bit slack last month, I finished a few models but haven't gotten around to photographing them. Hopefully tomorrow won't be as overcast as it has been the last few days so I can get some pictures in.

I finished up quite a bit of the Ghoul Host box. I just got to finish the last 3 Crypt Horrors and the Varghulf Courtier.

Next to that. I picked up the new bases to start redoing my AOS Skaven. Gonna be green and purple.

My completed models for last month now, just a couple of days late The new Cryx battlegroup box with Bane Witch Agathia and the Farrow Razorback Crew were the only new models I completed, but I also went back and did some extra stuff on some of the models I worked on in the first half of the year, adding freehand writing onto my other Slayer and some warpaint onto my Gatormen.

Wow fancy stuff guys

I failed the first month of the challenge, I intend to eventually catch up and then retroactively complete any missed goals, but it may be awhile. As long as it's this hot and the baby is this needy, gonna be rare to get any solid hobbying time in.

Hey guys, I've been updating the June Showcase post now.

If anyone has posted their monthly pics and I've missed them, please LMK and link to your post with the pics (it happens).

If anyone else has finished stuff but hasn't photographed them yet, please LMK when you do. You might have to PM me when you get them up so they don't get mis-filed into August. (I myself am in this boat. Still need to spray varnish my Undead entry, let it dry, flock and then photograph.)

If anyone has additional models since the earlier post (Mana Press? Throphony?) post a new one and LMK to update the June thread.

For those who posted to let us know you didn't get the month's pledge done, y̶o̶u̶ ̶s̶h̶o̶u̶l̶d̶ ̶f̶e̶e̶l̶ ̶a̶w̶f̶u̶l̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶e̶s̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶a̶ ̶t̶e̶r̶r̶i̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶p̶e̶r̶s̶o̶n̶ no biggie, it happens. See if you can use it as additional motivation for the coming months, like Grimdork.

For those who entered and haven't posted since, try to let us know if stuff just happened and you're still in even though you got delayed this month - which is fine. I'd rather just remove anyone who has withdrawn rather than sort through usernames that are never to be heard from again after the sign-up, which happened a bit with the last one of these.


Ryngan - That's a ton of photos - could you take a group shot and I'll link it to your post with all of the individual shots?

Okay, first few for July in brief!

@Azazelx - Really nice clean painting work! I particularly like the detail on the bolters of the minotaurs - the variation individualises them whilst still looking uniform.

@JoshinJapan - I had actually not seen the Melnibonean line before, classic Citadel I imagine? They're lovely models! I like the freehand dragon designs on your shields, and the way you've picked out the details on the helmets. Nice scheme.

@Archer - Fantastic unit! All the clashing heraldry is very characterful, and again some beautiful freehand. Have you taken the heraldry designs from historical houses, or are they your own designs? I'm seriously impressed that you knocked them out in a month!

@Barzam - More models that I've never seen, and very interesting they are! Reminds me of the Pirates of the Carribean Davy Jones crew, maybe thrown forward a few hundred years?! I really like your gribbly skin tones, and the tarnish on the copper. I enjoyed the PACman nod on the TAG!

@Thraxas - Wow, you're a prolific painter! That's a lovely shade of blue / green on the liberators, meshes really well with the gold detailing. Lovely gemwork on Tycho, and again, great tarnish on the rifle barrel.

Will comment on some others if I have time after shift

My August WIP is the rest of the demi-company:



I got most of this done in July, but only one squad fully complete, so I'm excited to put the finishing touches on these lads and get them done. Right now the two tactical and assault squads are fully painted with transfers, they just need to be dull coted, flocked, and have banners added. The Devs need yellow on the trim, blue clean up/highlighting, and then details, transfers, etc.

A friend pointed out that I painted my helmet stripes yellow, when studio Ultramarines usually have solid blue helmets. I never noticed that, but I kind of like the look, and I'm pretty sure I don't want to repaint thirty-some helmets! Any thoughts from the thread?

Work on my Razorback is...finished. Ripped through it in a day, which in reality would only be about four hours steady work. Pretty happy with the result, though I do realize the assault cannons are a bit out of sync (must have happened during the gluing process when my back was turned! Heresy!)

Great work everybody, I'm keeping my eyes on the compilation post and it's looking like we had a good July!

All that yellow is driving me insane. For August, I'll keep it light with a single Razorback, and break up the sea of yellow with some 28mm WW2 British gun teams, for Battlegroup, Chain of Command, and/or Bolt Action!
