@Gobert: It was just the largest transfer on my already purchased sheet, and luckily it worked perfectly.

@Viterbii: Aye, there are plenty of guides out there.

So the Monolith was a fun build, to be able to fully paint it I will have to go the route of sub assemblies. All told I have broken it down into the following 9 pieces:



I also went all in to get the Void Dragon done over the weekend. His main body is silver with a mix of Magos Purple Contrast, Druchii Violet and Contrast medium and I am very happy with the results. I used a number of colours to tie it in with my Necron force namely the purple body, green energy trails and blue on the Canoptek construct tail. So here he is:













Thanks for looking.

Cheers everyone, looking back the lighting in those Void Dragon photos is really poor. So I took a few new ones, ultimately the more I look at him the happier I am, so that is a good thing:







I also started work on the Monolith, of the 9 sub assemblies I have now done 6 so the progress is good.

First up is the central section:





And the gateway:



So the first two bits are glued together:



I have also completed 4 of the obelisk like stone pieces that glue into the interior hull, so just imagine this one times 4:



So I am getting there, but i still have the rear Canoptek piece and the two massive side plates to complete.

Thanks for looking.

Love the Void Dragon, really nice shiny color and good job getting that purple in the recesses.
The subassemblies for the Monolith are insane, but it is really paying off, that you took that route, the parts look amazing!

Thanks everyone, I have motored on and managed to complete the Monolith. After being initially reticent I enjoyed the sub assembly process, mainly because whoever designed the miniature did it with the sub assemblies in mind. All of the glue points are nicely secluded with lots of plug in points for the relevant pieces.

I was unsure of how the Martian Ironearth would look on the massive base but it actually worked out well and just needed a good thick layer and lots of drying time:





And here she is completed, I enjoyed adding the purple on the side panels to make it a bit more visually interesting than a solid silver block:













That leaves me with 31 miniatures painted for the month and 292 for the year. Best of all is my 11 Necron models weigh in at a solid 1205pts! I have no idea what my total Necron army is, I will have to add it up soon.

But with 4 games systems covered and an action figure i am happy with my month.



Thanks for looking.

Cheers Gobert, I was more than content with it.

Now just being 9 miniatures shy of my 300 for the year I am wondering what is the best route to take to get there?

Do I get units out of the way or tackle bigger projects? I have a Repulsor for my Lions ready to paint but am just find the big gold panels daunting to tackle. I also have a couple of Chaos Knights to finish...so many minis.

I also totalled up my painted Necron Army, I am at 2920 points. Not bad at all given I had not painted a single Necron until mid June.

So obviously any addition to the Lions gets my vote! Chaos Knights would be cool too though. Your Necrons really have grown at an impressive rate that’s for sure!

Amazing work on both the Void Dragon and the monolith, LTMW. The purple in the silver works beautifully and I will never not be impressed by your output!

Talassar is my new favourite thing and I need to grab some right away. When I saw it on the power coils I said wow out loud!

Great work.

Thank you everyone, it was a fun month to paint.

@Tzurk: Talassar blue is a great addition to the paint range, I love it.

@Mephisoles20: Thank you, I did want some brightness but not totally neon everywhere.

So the march to 300 continues, this time with a few character models.

First up is the Warhammer Day model in the form of Chaplain Tarentus, obviously I painted him up as a Celestial Lion. Initially I was unsure of this sculpt but in hand I thought he was pretty cool:





I also painted up the Daemonifuge: Ephrael Stern and Kyganil set. I used this as a bit of an experiment in contrast paints to see what I could get done with them.

First up is Kyganil: The base is Hexwraith flame and contrast medium over wraithbone base, I used yellow contrast for the hair and a flesh colour for the skin. The red is my traditional favourite of flesh tearers red contrast, with additional highlights. Any attempts at purple for the jacket were a total failure, as purple contrast is generally really bad, so that is traditional paint:





For Stern I used black templar for the armour, apothecary white for her hair and flesh tearers red for the cloth. All have additional highlights:







Overall I think they look pretty cool together, I used the Flesh Tearers Red to visually link the two:





So that takes me to 294 miniatures painted for the year, just 6 more to go for 300. Here is my proposed route to 300:

Hexmark Destroyer
Primaris Chaplain on Bike
GSC Truck
GSC Magus
Invader ATV
Primaris Repulsor

The new Chaplain does look better here than in the announcement. The Daemonifuge characters look good, too. Stern's eyes and Kyganil's gem really stand out.

Sorry for the long absence. THe Necrons are great. Void Dragon looks even better with the new lighting, not that the old pictures looked bad at all. I really likethe look of the stones in the Monolith, you did a great job with them and the Orb.

Yet another good update! The Chaplain looks great, nice touch to highlight him with blue, ties him in well with the rest of the Lions. The Daemonifuge pair came out well too, I second youwashock on the gem work!

All three are excellent pieces, but Kyganil is my favorite. Wonderful articulation to the figure's pose and you've painted him up wonderfully well. Thank you for pointing out which colors are traditional paints and which contrasts; I'm just starting messing about with contrasts myself and it is extremely useful seeing how some come out, as opposed to traditional paints with washes/dry brushing.

I have historically (I'm old enough I think to have memories considered to be 'historical' ) been weak at painting skin tones- so seeing what a contrast fleshtone can do here is instructive.

Rock on!

Cheers everyone, I miscounted on my last update. After that one I was actually at 295 miniatures painted for the year, not 294. Today has seen me hit 299.

So what did I paint?

First up is the Necron answer to The Kellermorph, the Hexmark Destroyer. A super fun, fluffy robot killing machine armed not with a six shooter but six shooters:







I also painted up a second Magus for my GSC, this time the female sculpt. I really like the understated, natural and non heroic pose of this one. Not my best work really, I am not sure what it is but something is lacking...I may have to revisit her.







Finally are a couple of additions to my Celestial Lions, first up is the universally lauded and loved Invader ATV armed with Multi Melta. I am just waiting on a base delivery to finish it off but as sold this miniature is done:









Finally is the Primaris Chaplain on bike, I adore this miniature. I altered it slightly by removing the chained book from the bike, it was daft as he could barely see over it when seated, so let us just assume that he has a digital version on his person:













So a bit of a slow month as I have only done 7 miniatures thus far, but number 8 and also 300 overall will be the Repulsor that is slowly floating its way towards my painting table.

Thanks for looking.

Hexmark is a mad miniature and a lot of fun. Primaris kart looks great. Love the Chaplain. The eyes are killer and the purple haft for the crozius is an excellent choice. In the grim darkness of the 41st millenium, you can still get your books on Kindle.

Nice updates and a very cool road to 300. Really interested how easy it will be to get the Repulsor painted in your colors.
And I have to admit, I'm a little sad to see the chaplain without the book, it is daft, but the good kind of daft On the other hand, if he starts using the 40k app and is as dissatisfied as the rest of us, it might get reworked a bit faster, if he complains
