Great stuff guys, The mechs don't enter the fray much I have a good ruleset for them Horizon Wars but I have to provide both sides for the fray which is the main reason for the OPFOR mechs.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

I'm kind of curious as to whether this challenge is going to continue in the bottom half of the year. I may bow out regardless, as I'm having trouble maintaining any kind of consistent painting output this year (just look at my abysmal model count for 2017 in my sig). I kind of forgot that this thread was even here, as it kind of disappeared for a while (at least I thought it did).

Anyways, here's what I've got for June:

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

I've had a nasty life/health event in the last week (well, not me personally, but family close enough to count as me) so I won't be running it for the second half of the year as a lot of my energy will be elsewhere. I may step up again at the start of 2018, and run it again.

I can definitely see how people could need a break from this level of focus, though.

In the meantime, even if it doesn't "officially" continue for the later half of 2017, I'll happily keep posting units I manage to complete in this thread with an aim to keep up that minimum of one per month. I'd encourage others to keep throwing theirs in here as well when they finish models, as it's been cool to see what this group turns out.

By the way, Bobby G has turned out very nicely there, Zerg!

45 minutes (plus or minus) a day is part of my current routine, so I plan to keep posting as I complete things.

I have had a shocking last couple of months for hobby. But I can't complain as lots of exciting and wonderful things are going on in real life. But I have slowly started getting some painting going again so although I won't manage anything for two months in a row now I hope to start having finished progress next week.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Seems that Photobucket no longer wants to allow me to use their website for 3rd party hosting. Which is a massive pain in the proverbial.

As I have a lot of photos through this blog I looked into upgrading my account. But let's say $300 a year is not worth it in my opinion for a pretty average website that is already plastered with annoying ads and pop ups.

So, anyone have some suggestions on where I can host stuff as an alternative?

Same here for wargaming stuff anyway.



These are my completed CAV's for this challenge. If I offer to host would people be up for another thread?

Y'know what? Do another thread. I'll put forth more effort to get stuff done and actually participate properly this time. Like I said, part of the reason I didn't contribute much to this one is that it kind of disappeared for a while and I wasn't sure it was even still going. Maybe I just missed it somehow.

Post the new ones from July onwards in the new thread, Josh!

Having said that, these two were finished in June, so they go here:

Russian Alternative's "The Berserker Dwarf of Fire Canyon #1 and #2". Essentially character models for their Chaos Dwarf Not-Slayer models.
