Ordered a 54mm scale S.T.A.L.K.E.R. miniature. Hopefully it gets here in time, it might take me a while to make the scene around him. He is holding an artifact detector, so I'll go revisit the game and find a good place in the game with some anomalies to recreate.

Nice work Evil-D185, thats looking really cool, I like the suspense you have left us in by not showing the face

Good progress so far Rybrook, always liked those models but never been able to get any .

Interesting idea Coh Magnussen, I like the middle one the best.

Looking very good already Nev

No painting update from me but I have updated the league table

Thanks Midget Gems. The first and last are regular 40k gretchin with Space Marine bits added (I had to do some judicious knife-and-file work to make the body armor sufficiently hollow, but the shoulder pads just glued on). The middle is a full SM torso/head with fantasy goblin legs and arms (plus a spare choppa from the boys box). He's got a banner that will go with, I'm thinking an ultramarine symbol but with teef .

Hey everybody! I'm checking in with my finished entry for the month: Ennius Spinther, combat specialist for my Deathwatch Kill Team.
I'm a little saddened - I leave the country for 2 months (albeit for awesome study-related reasons) in mid-November. It's also the midst of exam time, so I'll need to be snappy and negotiate some spooky deadlines very carefully. It also means I'll miss December as far as the comp goes. A bummer to round of the year with a miss - it'll carry my total tally of missed ones for the year up to two. I was so close to getting something in every month! Oh well. Next year I guess





Good luck everybody!

Well, mine's done, just need to get some better photos.




Lipsdapips, that kinda sucks, but plus side, they're better than the ones I am getting in every month. That's a nice looking marine.

Magnussen, those are nicely goofy conversions. I like them alot.

Nevelon, the ghost streamers are coming along nicely, front one looks like its just about there.

And thanks as well to Midget Gems for keeping the chart up to date. That thing is a bear to wrestle...

Need to do some basing work and a little touchup (and find a way to photo the 'nob' so his face isn't in the banner shadow), but figured I'd post another set of pics.

Well done Lipdapips, another really good entry. awwww sad you are off for 2 months, I always look forward to seeing your entries. Good Luck with your trip and see you next year

Great work on those Nighthaunt Nev, yeah I really like the different techniques you employ for these guys.

Excommunicatus - Shame you are withdrawing that was a really cool model. Anything else you can enter?

Nice progress Gundor, the wings look like they really belong there.

I really need to get a move on with painting, just been very busy the last few week

I've had a tiring first half of the month, with a lot going on in work, and working on my Armies on Parade board in the evenings. In the week since AOP, I've been a bit burned out on starting anything else, so all I've managed to do so far is build and prime the model I've decided to paint. I'm going to paint a Plague Marine. Yep, just one bog standard Plague Marine. I've never painted anything Nurgley before, the closest being a female chaos marine I painted a few months ago for these challanges. I've got some cool new paints, and I'm going to try out some completely new techniques on this guy.

Those are a lot of fun to paint! So many disgusting little details. I did the whole Dark Imperium squad of them in last November's challenge.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 9/25/20, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~16000 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~900 | Space Wolves: ~3800

You always have really interesting ideas, felt, so I'm keen to see what you do with the plague marine...they are great models too...
Loving the grots, Coh Magnussen. You've done a really great job on them.
Awesomely crisp detail again, lips - the highlights on the hammer handle are amazing.
Nev - that rider is especially dynamic and you've done some nice work on the 'cloak / ethereal bits...I'm about to try one of those myself. Did you use washes over white or highlight up from blue? I'm unsure which to try...
I'll try to get some WIP pics up soon...

Pretty simple. No idea what the modern equivalent paints are (using cote d’arms era hex pots)

Prime white.
Basecoat Elf Grey (very pale, almost white, with a touch of blueish grey)
Turquoise glaze over all the white, into the black/red to blend. Actually used as a glaze, not just a wash. None of this “sticking to the recesses” junk.
Thin black/red layer on the robes/cloak to reinforce the non-etherial portion and blend down into the ghosty bits.
Light drybrush with the Elf Grey again to pick up the high points and blend a bit.

That’s my secret. Not much to it. The main stumbling block is I’m not sure GW makes anything close to a turquoise glaze these days. They flow completely differently from the modern shades.
