Well, here is my completed competition entry. I really like the NMM on the eagle, the buckle, and the pauldron. Plus the skull is no longer red.
The OSL around the engines of his jump pack turned out pretty neat, too.
Pics spoilered because they're massive.

and a close-up of the NMM, etc.

I also need a break from painting space marines. Anyone have suggestions for, say, an AoS faction?

Very nice! The NMM wings came out nice, especially given such a small work space. If you're looking for a one off, I usually find Reaper to have enough different stuff to find something goofy I want to paint. Project wise...the Badgers and Burrows kickstarter is running, and oathsworn's got a nice back catalog for order. Staying in the GW sphere...seraphon or skaven are probably as far from marines as you can get, though I'm thinking my tastes may have tilted this recommendations list...

Nice work on the Inceptor-- your NMM gold turned out quite nicely. My only quibble is that the landing gear things on his feet kind of blend into the boots-- they might benefit from being a different color (grey, steel, something like that). Also, I like the white lichen on the base.

Now showing a goblin, a bounty hunter, a ranger, and human fly!

Very nice work! I like how you handled the jets!

Not sure what aos faction i would suggest.... skaven maybe, like vejut said?

AoS I think Daughters of Khaine is the farthest from Space Marines. All skin tone! No smooth panels!

Yeah, I was kinda thinking factions with lots of drybrush action and texture in their standard kit, and not much armor. Old wold/oathmark style dwarves would oddly probably also fit...

I was looking at dwarves, but don’t know what all the different holds mean. Or if you can field them all together. So I got the starter kit with the nighthaunts and the golden boys, and bought some skavens, too. Rats are in.

I have a couple reaver minis, my brother gave me some. I’m planning to paint him a couple for his d&d campaigns. I should have enough plastic to last me a while now.

Yeah, the 3 different Dwarf factions are all different armies. There is a special subfaction that can combine them, but they're all different by default.

Nighthaunts are fun, but the Starter Kit for AoS is dumb because it doesn't give you legal units!

Great paint on that marine! I salute your ambition in NMM and OSL. Both came out well.

I'm drawn to Skaven as well. Fur, ragged cloth, leather, and wood grain are all really fun to paint, and I love the big models from the line.

Great job on the Inceptor, the Nmm came out great, especially on the buckle and trim. It certainly sounds like you now have lots of non-space marines to keep you busy

Nighthaunt can be very fun and easy to paint. Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll has some nice ones in his plog and I painted some in a very quick scheme last year. They lend themselves to a lot of experimenting with paint styles.

So, I bought way too much stuff.

I got some rats, a warp cannon, and some stuff. I don't know why I primed it purple. It was the first can I grabbed. But, I think I'll make a painting decision on that basis alone, and make the army somehow purple.




Working on a sewer base for the cannon, and by extension will for all the little rats, too.


And then I built the Souls Wars starter box. I have the golden boys and some knight haunts.


If I would have gotten this first, I probably would have bought a knight haunt army, instead of a Skaven one. Oh, well. I supposed I could still spend a whole of more money . . .

Anyway, I primed the two armies in different colors and set up a quick game against myself.


Damn, these guys look cool. Even bare white, running across the gravel of my terrain looks so cool.


And, just like that, I'm frickin' buried in plastic again.


I bought a cheap airbrush, which I'm excited to set up and try out. It might give me a leg up on the pile of shame.

I also got a start on my LoER piece. I'm building a mom-and-pop style hardware store for Zona Alpha, or other post-apoc games. Slightly deteriorated, slightly damaged, definitely full of zombies or other threats.


Cutting and building shelves out of chipboard.





Making progress!

Isn't that always the cycle? I'd heard purple can be used to give very dark shadows to yellow especially with an airbrush, which might be an option if you're not into purple as a color (unlike me). Be interesting to see what you come up with.

Looking good DJ I think all your new stuff, and the Mom & Pop store is progressing nicely.

Thank you, Syro. And Vejut, there will be purple! I haven't decided exactly how much or where yet, but I like the idea of purple.

Here are some more updates on the store. I scored a piece to bend it for the shop counter. I also bought some greeble STL's from Miscast terrain. I have a coworker who owns a 3D printer and is going to cook up a few for me.

Anyway, here it is so far.
Been watching and listening to Trapped Under Plastic recently. It's pretty entertaining.

Great looking shelves Jazzy, really neatly done!

Just seen the brave has been doing some purple rats if you haven’t seen them already.

I was going to get some greebles and an AC unit printed for this piece. My mate who has the printer just broke up with his lady, and is moving out, etc. I wish him the best. But, it (selfishly) leaves me without the greebles.

Does anyone have a 3D printer who would be willing to print and send me stuff if I pay for post and filament? PM me if you would be interested.

Well, this isn't going to make the monthly challenge, but I intend to keep working on it.
There are so many little fiddly metal bits everywhere that it took much longer than I anticipated.



I'm also building sewer bases for my army. So, I did that, just have to paint it and pour some water effects.


And, I know I want to make the Warpstone purple instead of green, but I don't think this exact blend is the right one for me. Still playing with it.


If all of that weren't enough, there is a three-man, well, three-rat crew to paint:


But, I did manage some rust effects on the metal. That ought to count for something. Definitely not done, though. Nobody is traveling in style this month.



Thank for watching. More to come. I hope to get a majority of my LoER piece finished this weekend.
