I've been looking through all my skeletons trying to find one that is wielding a sword - no luck though - I found a bow, however.

I guess you need to aim it at least...
(Proof soon)

Of my least random or clumsy skeleton I have - the only skeleton who needs to aim!

At this rate, I'll finish my box before the year is done!
All thanks to the competition

Basing. First time trying to put something together with more structure rather than just throwing rubbish and debris on there. Got all the plasticard and brass etch from 4d models in London. Place has everything!

Wow where has the month gone, haven't got my proof pic up yet or even finished building what I wanted to enter. looks like Im in trouble

Sorry for the delay in updating the league table I have been (and still am) very busy. By the time I got around to it was worth waiting for a double update rather than 2 1 week apart.

Table updated and just 2 more challenges to go looking close at the top

Think I'm finished. Comments and criticism very much appreciated, this is the most time I have ever spent on a single model, everything has at least three shades of highlight but I know my brush control needs some more work to get those fine lines sharp.

Looks good! Black highlights work well, though I'd try to do slightly wider strips of mid tones on it, especially on the right thigh--bit of an abrupt transition. Still probably finer lines than I'm managing.

I have the last week of this month off and no plans, so I'll out myself in relatively late in the day with this elf:



Originally purchased it a few years ago for a now ex-girlfriend, was going to paint it up for her birthday, but things fell apart before then and it's been sitting on my painting desk ever since. Long since time I got it out of the way.

Should have time to get these girls done and they’re definitely not clumsy or random!

Oophf. Those two missing months really do hurt! Key takeaway: submit something every month for 2020!

My bois are done. I just need to take better photos of them sometime this week for the final pics.

@Jadenim: Thank you very much!

@DV8: Those "Bone Samurais" (I know that's not what they are called, but I don't want to look up their real name) are looking great! Very nice colour gradients, I especially like the swords! Only think I don't like about these models are these little knobs on the breastplate, as they look like nipples (i.e. as from a dog) o_O Personally, I would have cut them off...

Cheers Vejut. Your spot on with the highlight widths I often find my first highlight goes on super fine and neat which doesn't leave me enough room for a further fine highlight, will keep working on that.

I hate you both.

Still not trimming them off though; in truth you barely see them in person. I'm just going to start calling them my War Dogs. #WakandaForever

@DV8: Sorry for that! But I personally wouldn't trimm them either, if I had already painted them. Still, they are painted beautifully!

Thanks! I think it's a consistent design aesthetic on all the OBR models; all the chestplates have rivets that run down the mid point, right around nipple width.

Always felt that the asthetic of the OBR is what Tomb Kings should have been in WFB, as far as asthetic, maybe with a bit more of Egyptian Theme.. but the old Egyptian theme was pretty poorly done in the old Tomb Kings. I dig these man.. and yes.. dog nipples. It's like the many breasts of certain slanneshi things... err seekers. tits, tits, all the way down.

Pretty much done. Might apply a matte varnish to take the shine off his cloak. Probably take final photos tomorrow.

Done. Not only do the inquisitors weapons need to not be clumsy or random, but neither can his mind!

Aye its the old drachnyen. It came as part of the conversion I bought on ebay, but one of the arrows on the crossguard had been cut off, so I had to fashion a replacement. Im waiting for an old resin Abby in the post for conversions, so I may replace the sword when that arrives. I liked the idea of using the old components that would've been available in that 2000-2001 period when inquisitor came out.

Oh crap, it’s the 25th. For a month that classically drags on forever, we’re almost out of time!



Still need to do the grey edges, a few more detail passes, bases and shoulderpads. Hopefully get most of it done this weekend.
