But it's huge compared to his companion from 25 years ago...





Looking forward to getting some paint on it!

Nothing much, but proof of starting (I almost changed my entry as I have something I'm more excited to paint, but that will also likely take me a lot longer and I've just realised how little time I have in Jan )-

Does the new NM include an original as well? I'm sure I read somewhere it did but it seems unlikely to me?

I'll probably enter part of my Fellowship of the Ring (The Hobbits). Pics are going to follow as soon as I get home to the models.
EDIT: Here's proof pic, Pippen's jacket was basecoated a while ago so I could tell him and Merry apart

Please see the rules in the OP. You can enter any time up to the end of the month, but only if you have an appropriate proof picture taken after the start of the month.

I have not had chance to do a painting challenge for ages! So I will have to dive in to my bitz box and fix something up for this! Proofs to follow soon!

I'm thinking I might paint Luke and Han from Star Wars Legion, what do you guys reckon? Would that fit the theme? Would it be interesting, or a bit boring, being as I've done a SWL mini recently? I would have done Leia and Chewie too, but I haven't got either of them yet. You can't get Leia anywhere.

Definitely fits the theme to my mind.

I'm in this month! Excited to see all the hobbits and inquisimunda and rock gods and skarsniks!

I was going to do mini's for two characters in our new D&D campaign, Bandobras Burrows and Marian the Barbarian. The characters are bound by fellowship in-game and we're all bound by fellowship in real life as well, so it seems good for the theme.

I'm slowly but surely making progress on my entry:

Still a few little details left to pick out (like the skin), but I'm definitely getting there. Next task will be to shade the metallics.

Hello and Welcome Munn, I like the posses you have put them in

also hello and welcome Scythern

Very interesting seeing those two models side by side, good luck Chaos dad it is a very cool model. My Ork Guitarist is available should you wish to form a band

Yep I recon that would fit the theme very well Feltmonkey

My progress so far.... seems to good to be true tbh I might even be finished before the end of the month (1st time ever!) Gobbla is mostly done and Skarsnik has his base coats on.

Which do you guys think looks better, Gobbla on the left or right?

Gobba on the left. The spear in the center I think helps with drawing the eye down the the minis and focus on the middle.

Also doesn’t look like he’s about to chop his good buddy with a sword.

OK,

Finished the three mortar teams.

Converted five of the six models as I was never happy with the default pose for the trooper with the round.

In the aerial view you can see the extra mortar shells ready to be grabbed, I always thought the kit was a little short of parts.







Now these are imgur images, the ones I uploaded to the gallery seemed to want to flip the top down views horizontally.

The long painting war continues,

Lovely mortars there. I love a good bit of camo and a dash of practicality. Nice work.

Also, a progress shot of my BSF Beastmen. Almost done with the first set of base coats. Metals next and then on to shading and patterningof the fur. Going for a rag tag motley assembly of scavenged clothing and kit. Everything that is orange Brown will be a rusty thing.

Nice work CB, the extra rounds and camo boxes are a nice addition to the base

Good progress so far Flinty, I like where you are going with all the orange/rusty bits.
