Cheers everyone, I made a small start to the new month. I have tried the dakka galler/my mobile phone for these pics, I am not too pleased with the results so will probably return to my traditional setup.



I also decided to take a few pictures of my models painted for the year so far.

All told:

173 miniatures.
5 game systems (40k, AOS, Warcry, Adeptus Titanicus and ASOIAF).
15 Factions (Celestial Lions, Chaos Knights, Orks, Necrons, GSC, Nighthaunt, OBR, Stormcasts, Dwarfs, Targaryen, Free Folk, Neutral, Lannisters and 2 AT Tian/Knight armies).

No idea if I am getting any better at painting, I am certainly more consistent and I also painted far less purple than I thought!










Thanks for looking.

I like those Ridgerunners too- net little kits and you've done them up well.

The detail, shading and outlining work on the Necrons is amazing- if I ever get painting faces down, that kind of skill is what I want to start working on acquiring next.

Well done!

Thanks everyone, luckily I have been on holiday the past week so I have had a lot more hobby time.

That means it has allowed me to focus on a few things..and..I...have...completed an army. Admittedly it is only a 5 model army but my loyalist Imperial Knights are done (for now) with the completion of my Imperial Knight Castellan armed with Plasma Decimator and Volcano Lance. As ever I have not really done any weathering on my loyalist Knights, I save that for Chaos.























And here he is with the other lads, and versus some Chaos Knights:





A big boy, but only 1 miniature for the months total. What is next? No idea.

Thanks for looking.

Congrats on wrapping up the Knights. They look fantastic. Quick, too. Wasn't the big guy only a pair of legs...yesterday?

He was, well a pair of legs and the shoulder pads were done. The body and 2 weapons were a black then leadbelcher spray base coated. The weather has been pretty rubbish so basically spent the evening painting and finished him off at 6am. Working nights my body clock is shot so I tend to get up early, 2 hungry cats help with that as well. I also have always found bigger miniatures quicker to paint...

Infantry looks to be up next in the form of some Necron Immortals with the dual gauss weapons (mental blank on their names at the moment). I also had a Doomsday Arc and some Wraiths delivered from GW today as well, it looks like an interesting build and paint. I actually have a spare Knight base to put the DDA on as it looks like it is far too big for a traditional flying stand.

Illuminator Szereas, the new one, is also due for delivery on Saturday so will hopefully get some new pictures up for you on Saturday.

The Knights look great.

Great half year collection ListenToMeWarriors! Fantastic quality and quantity, enough to make people jealous! The castellan was a cool start to the second half, mighty impressive war machine. Do you use an airbrush for the Basecoats? The purple looks very smooth

Thank you gents, I am very happy with my numbers thus far. Hopefully I can break 200 this month.

@Gobert: Airbrushes are cheating! I jest, I have never owned or used an airbrush and would not really know where to start. The smoothness just comes from careful spray undercoats of black and leadbelcher. The metal provides a lovely base for the purple which is just mixed with plain water for smoothness, that and Liche Purple is just a great paint to me.

Anyway, a bit more progress.

This morning Illuminor Szeras arrived so i put him together, he is 33 pieces total and a bit fiddly in places so be careful if you buy him:









I also got my Gauss Immortal squad painted up, nice and simple work. It also adds another troops choice to the army:









Have made a little start on the DDA, namely the base and my spray basecoats. The Martian Ironcrust really helps with the former, you just have to lay it on thick.





Finally I laid down the basecoats and traditional Aggrax wash on Robb Stark from the ASOIAF starter set, I really need to get more Starks done:



Thanks for looking.

The Illuminor is done. A really interesting miniature to paint. He is quite spindly but not in a really delicate kind of way. I also had no idea how to paint the blood/flesh/life force/ whatever it is that is being extracted from the poor Imperial citizen. So in the end I went with blood being transformed into some form of energy because: space magic.













I also got a bit more Stark work in in the form of Robb Stark and a pair of sworn Sword Captains. These are all from the ASOIAF core set, that leaves just a unit of 12 Sworn Swords and an Umber Champion to complete the Stark half of the set.

TBH just a quick and easy job on these, but as they are intended to be joined to units it is the overall visual effect that matters. This also brings me up to 10 miniatures painted for the month thus far:







And here is one of the captains in a unit of Sworn Swords:



No real plan on what to tackle next, we shall see.

I like the "space magic." The staff and face look fantastic. He's actually pretty colorful, too. From the front he's a downright rainbow. Pretty darn cool.

Great work ListenToMeWarriors, the space magic looks nice and gory. The starks look really crisp, though Robb’s eyes look a bit more white walker than King of the North

@Gobert: He does! I have not bothered doing any of my ASOIAF miniatures eyes...too small and against my quantity over quality mantra!

Have gotten a couple of pieces done in the past week. The first, The Doomsday Arc, I am not too keen on. I found it a chore to paint and i think that shows in the final results. I threw a fair bit of sponge weathering at it to make it a bit more interesting. Ultimately it is what it is and is done. At least I am happy with how it looks on the knight sized base, no idea how this chonky boy fits on the standard flimsy base.

















Now for my second piece, I am much happier with it.

As a faction I have no interest in the Lumineth Realm Lords...but as a character I have a lot of interest in Eltharion the Grim/The Blind/ The Light of.
What a miniature, £20 as a buy it now on ebay had to be done. I had no idea what scheme to do and just let the brush take me wherever. Eltharion on Stormwing was my first ever metal miniature purchase many moons ago and that had led me to this:

















Thanks for looking.

Hatchette also made a "slight" mistake with my latest Mortal Realms delivery:

Eltharion looks great , like the dark cloak on him.

Did they accidentally ship you two (one too many), or ship you two instead of four?

I’m not sure I follow you on the quantity over quality, maybe the over should’ve been and!

Great job on Eltharion, he looks spectacular. Him and Stormwing were the first large metal minis I got too. Great to see him get a spectacular new mini with an awesome paint job.

That’s the kind of mistake I like! Double minis!

Bonus!

Ark looks plenty good from here. Eltharion, as well. Cape is very nice. It is a neat model, and a cool idea. However, all I can think of when I see it is Traguna Macoides Tracorum Satis Dee.

That was an impressive first half of the year and July is going well too - quality and quantity. I like your colour scheme for Eltharion, really striking.

Hatchette made the same mistake for me too, I wonder if all subscribers got the same?!

@Theo: I wanted a nice big contrast between his armour and cloak, I am happy with how it came out too.

They sent me my sub twice. So 2 each of the paint pot, palette paper, binder and issues 19 through 22.

@Gobert: Did we ever learn of Stormwing's fate? I cannot remember, the whole retcon of the Eltharion the blind era makes it difficult to remember.

@Youwasshock: Cheers, as a whole the DDA fits in alright with the army, it is just far to big to go unnoticed.

Nowt wrong with a bit of Disney!

@Maharg: Cheers. From the facebook Mortal Realms group quite a few people had the double delivery, but not all. They made the same mistake with some peoples Premium Kit 1 (the ghoul faction). No idea how they make such mistakes. According to people that contact them about it they just tell you to keep the extra delivery gratis.

So state of play:

12 miniatures completed this month (admittedly the Knight and DDA are amongst that) so not too good.

185 miniatures completed for the year.

Am currently painting a unit of 3 Necron Wraiths. I do not know what 12 I want to do to bring me up to 200 for the year.

A week today (ish) my Indomitus box should be arriving. Like I need another 61 miniatures to paint...

Thanks for looking.

Nice to see a typical Hachette screwup go in the customer's favour for once! I recall having a right pain with their Marvel graphic novel collection a few years back.

Eltharion looks stunning. GW is killing it with their character minis these days and you're doing them justice!

I feel you on the arc, sometimes your heart isn't in it, but you still want that mini done. But as the others have said, still a great job!

Cheers everyone, any comments are noted and appreciated. Seems a while since I posted so that means one thing: progress.

A day early but i will make my end of month post today. So what has been on the painting table? Much Xenos goodness.

Look at any thread, post, forum whatever and the GSC players are up in (many) arms. A big issue has been the price increase to the beloved close combat heavyweights the Aberrants. At 33/37 points per model they are expensive. So of course now was the time to paint my second unit of them. I decided on a different scheme to my first unit, and I definitely prefer these lads:







This dude is my favourite:



Also got my Biologus Familiar painted up:



So now onto my other Xenos army, the Necrons. First up are the Wraiths:









Then Indomitus happened. I did what everyone else did and I set about putting together the miniatures and painting the most impressive unit in the box, the canoptek Scarabs:



I also got the Murder Buckets the cryptothralls. I love these pointy gits, great fun and easy to paint:









Finally in terms of my Indomitus progress I completed the Canoptek Reanimator, arguably my favourite miniature in the box. I love it:







spotted a bit of errant gold that needs correcting on the next pic:



That gives me this Necron army thus far. I am happy with my progress on them in just a few months. I do not think I owned any Necrons prior to June:



In terms of the month i have done 27 miniatures, taking me to 200 miniatures for the year and just 8 miniatures short of equalling last years total so August should see me smash that hobby goal for the year. July will definitely go down as my purple period:









Thanks for looking.
