Great looking army , the upside down and sideways shots are usually because yourusing an IPhone or iPad (just an assumption). It’s an ongoing issue between apple and Dakkadakka, I think it’s because Yakface beat the new ceo of apple in 40k years ago.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. Just came on for a quick tournament update, as expected not doing great with 1 win and 2 losses. Hopefully will get some pics and more detail later on.
Not got iPhone, Samsung (android I think) so not sure where the pic problem has come from. First time using phone pics though

Tournament over, did better than expected (not really a competitive player and the list wasn't particularly strong, just took what I had and used it as an excuse to add some more units to the army) with 2 wins, a draw and two losses, 49th out of 80 or so. Anyway, didn't come on for that (hopefully will add some pics when I get around to sorting through the photos). Instead, to celebrate reaching the second page of this blog, I dug into my very old miniature vault and gave this guy a new paint job - anyone remember this model?




So what's next on the painting table? I'm deciding between a deathwing knight and dwarf for the dakka painting challenge and really should finish my dragoons and dunecrawlers that didn't quite get finished. After that maybe I'll finally get some Slaanesh done...

Man, those old Undead are so great and so funky. That dwarf model has the "it" factor. Such a good sculpt.

yeah, its a great little model, so much more character than the current dwarves. Not much painting progress on this one over the last couple of weeks - not enough detail on the lower beard for drybrushing so had to paint on the hair which has killed the enthusiasm a bit. Still, got some of the hair done and a bit more on the gold.


I've also finally started on some marines, these three are now basecoated/shaded and the pink and sin are finished. Might actually have them done by the end of the month

I don't recognize it, but I like your Spooky Boi. Also some nice work on the dwarf so far.

Thanks Flapjack.

Not too much progress, but I did finish the dwarf in time for the painting challenge




And finally I've managed to finish a couple of marines, the first ones of the year which is pretty poor going considering they were supposed to be my main goal. Still, two are better than nothing, will hopefully pick up the pace on these now


when these two are combined with models I'd already finished I now have a battleforged force. OK, it's a minimum sized patrol detachment but a small milestone nonetheless

The marines look great but that dwarf takes the cake. Awesome work on an awesome model.

Your dwarf looks amazing. And I've got to say I realy like your pink, especially the highlights on the guns. Nice clean lines.

Nice work on the Chaos Marines and the Dwarf.

I like the Chaos Marines due to the colours working so well together.

Got to agree with the others, the dwarf and the marines are looking great. The hair on the dwarf is especially impressive!

Thanks all for the comments.

Not much painting to report but I have been working on a few things. First up is this arcoflagellant conversion I'm going to paint for the painting challenge. I think it fits quite well with the mad science theme


There is also talk of an upcoming Necromunda campaign, so I've been building a few gang members


and here they are with the rest of the gang, models I already had built/painted


Finally, I was passing by a GW yesterday and thought I'd pick up a couple of contrast paints to have a play with. Thought I'd go with some colours to paint up some tyranids as I have quite a few models but never found an enjoyable way of painting them, so might as well have a quick method instead. This is my first attempt, just blue, pink and bone contrast over the grey seer spray

Nothing special but ok tabletop standard and it was quick. The blue looks better in the photo compared to real life, the edges look more highlighted in the picture. I think I'll try using the thinning medium with the blue, or maybe try a light white drybrush before the contrast to make the edges stand out better. I do need to get a pot of the primer colour too as the bone colour really doesn't cover over the pink at all. What do you think of it?

Highly intriguing results on the Tyranid. That Necromunda gang is looking like it will be cool, too.

The tyranid looks pretty good, particularly if it was just the 3 paints that you laid down. Looks like they could be a good choice to get through an uninspiring to paint army quickly

yeah, the contrast paints certainly look to be the way to go with my nids. That was just the three paints slapped on and is certainly good enough for table top. I might try some other colours to better match my existing models though.

Just the one model completed recently - this arco flagellant for the painting challenge.




Quite pleased with it, had some fun with some red glazes making the scars and arms look sore which I think was fairly successful. I had intended to add some lighting effects but sadly ran out of time

I've also been sorting out/building up some old nids ready for some contrast action soon

Must have got the sores right from that reaction Gwyn. Thanks for the comments too Youwashock.

I've had a further play with contrast on my tyranids and I'm now happier the contrast models will fit in well enough with my current painted models. Here they are in a little gaunt conga line

Thought I'd let you know the colours used as it's hard to tell what the colours look like on a model when they are in the shop. All use a Grey Seer spray undercoat and Skeleton Horde claws. Bases had a coat of Wyldwood, though will probably still need a drybrush. The gaunt on the left was my first go (Leviadon blue carapace, Volupus pink skin) but the blue was too dark and the skin too pink. The next one is Leviadon blue/talassar blue 1:1 mix, Shyish purple/volupus pink 1:1 - happy enough with the blue, skin was about the right shade but wasn't too happy with the contrast effect. Middle one is same blue with shyish purple/volupus pink/contrast medium 1:1:1 which gives a better contrast effect. The fourth has magos purple skin which is too pale to fit in with current models but couild work well for some genestealer cults skin. Think I'm going to go for the middle one.
Now to build/spray some more to get the army going

I've been sorting out my built but unpainted tyranids and building a few more. Interested to see how quickly I can get these done with the contrast paints

It is quite a few bugs. Sadly not even close to all I have, sorting through I had forgotten how many of these things I bought all those years ago. Most of the big ones are here but plenty of smaller ones still to build. I didn't have as much painting time as I hoped this weekend, but did manage to get everything sprayed, the bases base coated and most of the blue done. Blue doesn't look great but will do for now.


I also need to get started on the painting challenge for this month. The theme is wild world, I'm currently thinking either a beastman or wood elf wild rider - any preferences or other suggestions for this?

That’s one serious amount of spray you must’ve used! Progress is already light speed compared to me! Oh and Beastmen get my vote ite

I vote beastmen, but I have a Minotaur on my desk right now so I might be biased .

That is a true hive fleet right there.

It will indeed, they have been languishing in the cupboard of shame for years. Hopefully more progress soon.

Well over a can of spray, I've been using more than usual to get full coverage for the contrast. May be fast, but the quality isn't really there, I struggled getting a consistent coat on the larger chitin plates. I was leaning towards beastmen myself as they are already built.

I vote beastmen, but I have a Minotaur on my desk right now so I might be biased .

That is a true hive fleet right there.

And that second vote confirms it, Beastmen it will be this month. I have one of those warthog things (I forget the real name) which fits the theme really well and I might do some others if there is time

I like that arco flagellant, reminds me of Snorks in the STALKER video games. Although after googling, it seems they had their clothes on.. Still, the gas mask is similar, as is the pose.

Had to google those Snorks but see what you mean mcmattila, definitely a resemblance there.

Been a while since I last posted, but not that much to show for the time away, not found much motivation and the heat hasn't helped either. Have managed a few bits though. First up a couple more contrast nids - gargoyles this time


and I've made a start on getting an inquisition warband together for an upcoming event. Going to have to get on move on on these as the event is only a couple of weeks away, at least it should give me some motivation. So far there are a couple of acolytes, a medic, interrogator and an ogryn bodyguard:


Finally I finished a model for this months Dakka painting challenge. Not the group of five I was intending but at least it's something

The light skin tone really works on him, did you use plaid wyche flesh? Or was it some other paint.
