Excellent stuff Taaloc and some nice sneaky Hobbitses Slinky. Got Sylvia done

and some Dead Eyes.

I generally paint these Zombies in batches of 3 and heroes by themself. I'm aiming for at least 10 by the end of the month along with stuff for other projects.

I don't think there's any risk of that... although my paint rate was low this week as I spent most of my hobby time building Genestealer Cult stuff from the Deathwatch Overkill box and texturing the bases ready for priming.
Loving the DA Primaris- always had a soft spot for the Dark Angels so great to see Primaris DA so neatly done.

As I mentioned my hobby time has been focused on building, so my painting has been limited to speed painting/rushing one squad and a couple of other bits and bobs, all for my Imperial Guard. The original intention was for them to be a GSC corrupted regiment, and they will certainly be used as such in games, but the more of them I do the more I being able to use them as a force in their own right. This means the purplish tinge and subtle bits of gribbliness here and there may not happen after all and I may just tie them in to the cults by the colour scheme.

First up, a quick Commissar.



And an Autocannon thing that I've probably set up and based all wrong



I hated this squad of Scions with a passion. I don't know precisely why, but I didn't enjoy painting them at all so they are a bit rushed. Still, I can check them off the list



This guy is to serve as an officer of some kind. Company/Platoon Commander?

Nice work everyone

@Llamahead, what are you using for basing? I haven't ever really bothered with basing, so I want to try a few things.

I forgot to post this in this thread

His name is Togg, an exclusive mercenary figure from warlord games for gates of Antares. I chose his colors before I realized he is some sort of alien bug dude. Worked out good in my opinion. And he's a tall guy too.

Here he is unpainted next to a Concord trooper and an Algoryn for size comparison.

I picked up some (4) cheap (less than $10 total) guildball figures at miniaturemarkets retail store. They are in progress over in my thread, hopefully will be completed by the end of the month.

Taaloc-Yep the zombicide KS was an excellent source for low fantasy heroes and undead I went fairly heavy on it. The models are certainly worth a look as gaming pieces in their own right. Your guard are looking excelent by the way.
Theophony-Flock and ballast sold for railway modelling I had the bright idea of rebasing them all on square mdf bases so I could use them in Warhammer it is now loooking like an awful amount of work but it means all my fantasy models are usable together without a mass rebasing. Togg is a nice varied alien as well.

Off and on painting and not enough time to post here .

Some of you are aware that I live within 2miles (3.2kilometers) of miniaturemarkets brick and mortar store. I stop by there at least once a week as their shop is on the way home from my part time job and they are constantly putting dinged and dented items out on the shelf for up to 80% off. Well in the last few weeks I've picked up a few of their dented figs for games I don't play. Mostly it's just the cellophane packages are damaged but they won't ship damaged goods out so they sell them for dirt cheap (I'm sure the manufacturer must give them a credit to recoup the loss and not have to pay to replace them).

I looked at the Kickstarter for guild ball years ago and almost pulled the trigger, but since my finances are tight I skipped it. I lucked out and they had some individual figs for a steal 3 figs for $7 and I had previously picked up two others for less than $5 total. So I assembled, primed and painted up the two mortician players I grabbed (bonesaw and Ghast). I've been watching Duncan on warhammerTV and feel like I've made some good strides in my painting from the videos.



The other 3 are 2 butchers and a fisherman (shank, tenderizer and I'm not sure of the fish guy, but he's one of their big guys with a spear/harpoon), are sitting and waiting patiently for their turns.

In the mean time last night I wanted to test a dark blue I've seen used for crimson fists but didn't feel like getting any marines out, so I grabbed the next best thing...an Orc blood bowl figure . Ive never painted orcs before (well I have, but not in the last 5+ years and they were bad) so more warhammertv watching and then I started my new Orc team Da Crumpin' Fists.

I'm still planning on painting something red on him, possibly the left knuckle duster or maybe just a modified crimson fist symbol on one of the plates. Sort of a homage to the Crimson Fists. Who knows maybe these will be some of the orcs that attacked the crimson fists world and they grabbed the metal from their victims armor and made their own from the parts. Base still needs to be done, but I must get more than this test model finished and do all the bases at once.

Finished a second bloodbowl Orc yesterday. I was able to duplicate the paint scheme with no problem, so the rest of the team will follow. Sorry for the bad picture .

I'm thinking of painting the skull glyph plate on his chest and back a different color instead of doing red knuckledusters. If I go red then they could be red skull commandos.

I also have Massive Darkness coming at some point- I do hope to have all of it painted one day but still haven't started on Sword and Sorcery yet!

I dug out the good camera last week and spent several hours fiddling about getting it working on the computer and all that. Not really happy with any of the shots I took but did get this one of the commissar I posted before:



Doesn't seem much (if any) improvement on the phone camera as far as I can see.

Quick paint up of these guys which I'm hoping to scatter amongst my guard squads



And finally made a start on some Genestealer Cult stuff properly this week, getting these guys more or less done (although now I see I need to tidy up the blob on the front of the coat of the Primus, damn it)



Was going to have the Genestealer Patriach finished as well but cycling back from a quick trip to the Post Office yesterday afternoon my bike decided that a small ridge in the middle of the road was too much for it and chucked me onto the asphalt, where not only did I sustain several stitches worth of injuries, but far more upsettingly also smashed the bottle of beer I had just bought and was carrying in my backpack to go with a movie in the evening. Ho hum.

Yeah, those are Victoria's female guard. I bought some guard off her awhile back, but can't remember what they were exactly. I seem to recall gas masks and kilts...

   
Made in gb
Prospector with Steamdrill





Yep, they are Victoria's Arcadians. I have another 5 to build and paint, and a squad of the Tannenburgs as well which I will use for... something. I picked up some of the greatcoat bits as well to make some commissars.

Thanks for the kind words guys- fortunately nothing broken (except the beer and parts of the bike) but a bit sore overall. I'm not old by any stretch of the imagination but I think I would have been much better off pulling that particular stunt 15-25 years ago. Extra special thanks to the passers by who... just walked off.

But it's not all doom and gloom! My guard are up two chimeras rather unexpectedly as a chap threw them in with a trade I was doing, and I managed to build two squad's worth of infantry from a bag of guard bits which on first glance didn't look like it'd make more than 5 or 6 guys.

Orcs are looking good Theo- I did an Orc team in blue as well a few months back (but then all my Orcs have been in blue uniforms/armour since I was about 10 when I had what I thought was the inspired idea of making a 40k Ork army called "Da Boyz in Blue")

Great stuff guys. I've got Danton done.

Didn't go full on with Tartan as I didn't think I could pull it off and I wanted a more peasanty vibe from him. The random peasants becoming heroes is one of my favourite elements in fantasy fiction and the models in Black Plague seemed to imply it. I also got a couple more zombies done.

The elf bard is painted as a ghost to be used as a banshee in Frostgrave as well.

This is also what I accomplished in July

Might go easier on the pace next month as the unofficial competition is Brutal and I have a couple of models which might fill that well.

No idea if it's allowed, so will gladly remove if not.

July's Progress-



August may be slower to start with while I wait for my injuries to heal- I did finish the Genestealer Patriarch but because I'm not able to rest my arms or hands on anything to steady because of where the wounds are it was pretty scrappy and a frustrating experience.

It may be a blessing in disguise as one thing I can do painlessly is airbrushing- something I've never really practiced- so not only can I get some serious practice in on that, I can basecoat loads of vehicles and stuff at the start of the month ready hopefully) for the finishing touches later on when things improve.

25 complete models this month.also did some test patterns and have some more bloodbowl orcs and terrain in the works, but these are ones started and completed this month.
