I may have to join in here.

I'm doing an enormous Slaaneshi army for the 28th, I'll pick something.

I haven't got an entirely unpainted proof of any of it, but I do have photos that prove I hadn't started before October began.

@Moolet: Top work. I can't really notice the lack of definition caused by the many coats of primer, so the job's a good'un!

@BC: Welcome back!

Still struggling with my entry, I've not got much to paint on hand at the moment and even less of it's suitable for the theme. I also don't want to enter just another Space Marine as it feels like that's all I've done recently... Might still go for some AoS Death stuff unless anyone else has any recommendations (ideally something fairly cheap, money's a bit tight at the moment)

What about reaper bones stuff? They are fairly cheap and they have all sorts of interesting minis.
The quality is a bit low though. The bigger minis are OKish.

I've done some stuff with Bones before, I find the material just a bit too poor to take as a purely painting project. It's fine for DnD pieces or board game type bits but for painting I prefer to stick to plastic/metal.

I'm eyeing up the GW Wight King, he's pretty cheap and a model I've wanted for a long time.

Yea I agree, bones is quite a crappy material. Time is precious and wasting it on a gakky mini is a no no.

Could also get one of the bigger bones minis, like the elephant man I did in August, or one of their dragons--it tends to come out better with them. Could also look at Malifaux--not too dear for a small box, and some decent horror stuff there in standard gray PS plastic.

Okay, I'm officially in now, here's the proof pic for my Poxwalkers:

As usual when I do large units, I'll paint all of them and then pick the 5 best ones to be my contest entry, assuming of course that I get them all done. Gonna be a major switching of gears from all the power armor I've been painting recently.

Got myself some rest days, it's awesome to get gak done! The work continues:



The day I saw this model, I knew, I just KNEW I had to do something with that head to make it look like the image. It was hell to carve up the head, but the results are worth it. Obviously you can't see, but the light flickers like a candle. It's extra lovely.

This is my first "LED-in-a-miniature" project, so I'm really happy with my progress

Wight Lord came in today, so here's the result of a couple of hours' work. Needs more done to the cape and a few other areas so he's still WIP, but I'm really quite pleased with the textures I've managed to work up on the armour.



Not sure whether to make him a little ghostly with glowy eyes and take the cape a bit more ethereal, or go the opposite and have him look like a chap who's been really, really neglected for a really, really long time...

I just love it when “a couple hours WIP” is better then what I do in a month.

Nice work. I’d go for the ghostly etherial glow. If he was just a basic wight, I might go with the neglect. But he’s a Wight Lord, and should ooze menace and have palpable waves of evil rolling off him. Give him the touch of the unnatural that only eldritch radiance can bring.

Good point Nev, eventually he'll have a few dusty Skeletons hanging around him (come on Shadespire Skellies, just release! It's been over 6 months since they first showed them! ) to something to set him apart from them as something a little more magical.

heh.

And just to show I’m still in this for more then the jokes, a WIP:



Not a fan of the sculpt on the hoses, Lots of filler in spots they couldn’t do undercuts. Like hooves and legs just stretched wide to meet up with the fabric. Probably won’t be that noticeable on the table, but when building and painting it really irks me as a modeler. Once the wash on the horse is a little more set, I’ll attempt a little weathering. We’ll see how that ends up.

The wraith is just done with his first wash. Turquoise glaze over black and a very light blue/grey. I need to go back and darken up the robes a bit, to boost the contrast with the flames. I like the slight tinge of color they got from the glaze though, don’t want to disrupt that too much. I think for the others in the squad I might put a black wash or ink down before the turquoise. Still need to do the scythe blade. Instead of the general slathering I gave him already, I think he also needs a targeted wash in some of the low points just to help define and deepen them.

@EmberlordofFire8: Looks like we've got ourselves a little Pox-off going!

As for my Poxwalkers, here's where they are at right now:

The skin is basically done other than possibly a few touchups. Next up will be blocking in the other colors so they don't look quite so messy.

That Wight King is looking really good, Para. I love the gritty, textured style.

Been procrastinating about what to paint this month, I wish it was Fright Night every month!
I can't wait to see everyone finish all of the cool models that are up.

Anyhow, I waited months for this Grymkin model to come out, so I'm excited to give her a coat of paint...

Glowing ethereally enough yet? Ta again for Nev for convincing me to go for the glow, it adds some much-needed colours and contrast to the palette.


Still technically WIP, so feel free to critique. I really want to push myself and hopefully reach the upper end of the scoreboard this month, so in the interests of improving myself, I invite you to rip my paintwork to shreds!
