Thanks Midget. I'm shamelessly copying nerdfests approach on the breastplates and stuff, just hoping I can pull it off

I'm at a bit of a loss with my entry. I have them primed and the diorama is planned but the sticking point is my lack of power armour experience. I have no idea what colour to paint them up.

I recommend a strong contrasting colour to the background - if you've got a matt green jungle type background, paint them bright reds. Paint the shoulder pads/shoulder trim in a complementary colour to the armour, and the eye lenses and purity seals in another complementary colour. For example, red, black, green.

So, I was going to do some mongol horsemen, kinda burned out on them, and started some more animal adventurers, but like a dummy forgot to take pics before I got done with the base colors for two out of three. Earliest pic I've got is this one:

Looking at the cat, rat, and duck (the fox I started last year). Still OK, or jump back to some mongols/grab another model?

Hi all

League table has been updated, very close at the top and also for several other positions, going to be a fun run in on these last 2 months

https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/732117.page#9481149

Based on your other entries WishWarGaming, I'm sure what you aren't happy with is a lot better than I could do

Good luck with animals again Vejut

And refuse to love the Spinosaurus because it is a hamfisted attempt at taking what you loved, making it TREX +++ and trying to sell you it.

There is no such thing as a hobby without politics. "Leave politics at the door" is itself a political statement, an endorsement of the status quo and an attempt to silence dissenting voices.

So, where I'm at today:


I'll try to finish up the sheild and sword on the duck this weekend, and then its on to basing. Cat feels a bit...ragged? Muddy? Not sure, but not happy with how it came out, and any suggestions for salvage, or at least "causation to avoid it next time" would be helpful.

Final pics


Killteam Zephyr. Specializing in lighting strikes and rapid redeployments, as befits his White Scar heritage, Brother-Sergeant Zephyr has forged his kill team into an aggressive blade, ready to cut the heart out of the xenos.

Eventually I might get around to naming everyone in the team, but they are really more designed for use in 40k, not KT. Their battle-brothers over in Killteam Solari are the guys specd for that job. Although the BT or Fleshtearer could take on the combat specialty, and the Wolf would make a good scout, two roles I didn’t build for in that killteam. With the exception of the Brazen Claw, the squad is composed of aggressive, in your face chapters. So they get the auto bolt rifles and get to charge up the battlefield. Eventually they will get the back half of the squad in the form of some aggressors, inceptors, and reivers in some combination.

Grey edges are always a pain. Getting better at them, but still not a fan of the actual process. Shoulderpads should add more color to the squad. One problems is that two of my chapters (BT, FT) are basically black and white, the Brazen Claw is fairly subdued, and I already use a bit of red as an accent color. Space Wolf gets to get some yellow on, with a bit from the WS as well. As I branch out into adding more to the squad, I need to brighten things up a bit.

Of the squad I’m most proud of how the sarge came out. Fun to build, and I think I did a decent job on him.

@Peregrine, nice to see another Krieg entry. Will be hard to compete with that one!

Good job so far everyone, can't wait to see all finished!

A bit late to the party, but here's my proof picture I took a week ago:


I hope it qualifies, as there are some brown and grey color on some of them.

Also a WIP image.

oops! I appear to have been rather distracted this month!...I don't think I'm even halfway through my flash gitz entry yet ...instead, I've painted a random daemonette standard bearer, an ork boy painted like a catachan guardsman, and I went rainbow-style on a box of the new squigs
Spoiler:






erm...s'pose I should get to work on my actual entry now, huh?

Nice Work Zobo

Tbh you could prob enter the squig herd in this challenge (they would have to have some friendship in the pack not to eat each other right?)

A strange feeling for me I've actually finished early! (yesterday) and took the photos today.

Heres my finished Skarsnik and Gobbla Pics. Iam quite happy with how the overall model came out and feels really good to have painted something thats been in my collection for 15+ years
edit: Just noticed theres a bit of detail been lost in the upload, Skarsnik has Red eyes with a dot of Orange in the middle but they have disappeared on the main photos which is annoying and makes it look like I haven't bothered painting them, but I have honest. .Maybe I painted them too small?




Proof of the eyes being painted

And done. The braying in the deep causes our heroes to pause in contemplation... through the lambent blue glow of the Fortress, the thunder of approaching hooves rings out!

Finished pics. Hope you enjoy them. As always super close up photography shows the table top level of painting marvellousley, but I'm happy and they are done

lol Nev, bloody goblins, always blinking.

Thank you very much Zobo

Na doubled checked it all and the photo on my PC has red eyes. I think I narrowed the problem down to my picture combiner, I think it stretched it slightly and lost a bit of detail so I made it bigger to compensate, but not too big so you can see all the mistakes (gone back and edited it, there's a hint of red there now.

Good Progress Maharg, still a few days left to get Grindlock done

I really like how the rusty metal came out Flinty, well done

Ah, I thought it was a draw last month (thus providing a theme for 2 rounds) but looking back at it, it wasn't. I'll stick a poll up first thing tomorrow, and apologies now for the short notice of subject.

Looking forward to seeing the final products. Unfortunately school has been absolutely brutal this month and I've had almost no spare time for painting, so I won't have anything done for this one.
