After a rip roaring start, and a short hiatus, decided to fully finish the doggoes before moving in with the more complex bits. So based the 3 faithful neck munchers. From the left, Cookie Hopper, Athena and Fluffy



Next up is probably the spider mech as I have half a clue of a colour scheme

With the German Shepard coloring and the back rigging on Athena, I can't help but immediately think of Riley from CoD Ghosts.

Not sure if that was intentional or accidental, but the similarity is there for me.

Thanks! I have never played COD ghosts, but the following description of Riley piques my interest

“ He is also able to take down helicopters by jumping up and biting the pilot if they are close to the ground.”

Now that is a good doggo!

Riley is definitely a good doggo.

Nice use of the banner base! I admit I have been wondering about what to do with the broken one I have, but now I realize it just makes a perfect base for a symbolic icon or Iron Halo.

I've barely started myself. Just started a new job Thursday and it's really leaving me drained. I was going to paint something a bit complicated to really push my skills, but I may have to rethink that and switch to something more generic now.

@Slave - I've rebased some of my other older termies but thought i'd leave this guy on his original base. Its not like he'll be getting used in a game any time soon so i don't need to worry about base size.

@Sergent - Yeah i thought about removing the banner base entirely but it seemed like it would be easier to leave it in place. I wasn't going to add a banner back on to it and wanted to keep things fairly quick/ simple so had a rummage through my bits for an appropriate icon. Couldn't find an iron halo but had an old plastic terminator banner and used the terminator honours icon from the top of that. He's obviously really proud of that terminator armour!

Indeed! And it a mighty and venerable armor to be proud of. Only the best of the best get the honor of wielding such wargear in his name!

Btw, I had a somewhat silly thought last night about sticking a chapter symbol on it, but that immediately made me picture an Ork boss with their back banners, so I kinda nixed the idea.

This guy is finished in that he has no bare metal showing, but I'm not entirely satisfied with his sword. I'm also sick of looking at him, so I'll be putting him away while I work on something else for a while, then come back and see if I can't do better.

I sympathise with you Nev. I've got way too many deadlines to make much progress. Here's what I've got so far. Waiting on some white ink for the armour, and I'm yet to decide on shield design, accent colours, crest, cape, base blah blah blah...

Some really nice and varied entries this month, I think this round is going to be a cracker!

My own entry joins the other larger-scale minis throw in so far, thanks to the wonders of 3d printing. These minis were originally sold at 35mm scale by Artel W a few years back, but they very generously released the STL files for free once the minis went out of production, and I've scaled these two up to 54mm-ish (though both are fairly tall characters, so closer to 60-65mm height).

Geralt of Rivia and Eredin, King of the Wild Hunt from The Witcher 3.



And a day 1 WIP of Geralt. Lots to do yet, but I'm quite pleased with how the texture work is coming along. Also pictured, a 35mm Geralt from Brother Vinni I painted last year, I'm having a much better time with the larger, better proportioned version!


I'm planning to put both Geralt and Eredin on a larger display base themed around their final epic sword duel that comes at the game's finale, but I've not printed that yet, so I'm just crossing my fingers that it works out! If not, regular bases it is! Any thoughts welcome!

Getting there - need to figure out what colour I want to do the gun furniture, rather than pure metallic. A bit of weathering and battle scaring would also be good.

Such a happy little dreadnought.

I finally found some time to properly get started on my Darkshroud too, after several layers I think I got a nice even black on it:


Not happy with how the statue in the back is held up. It's not glued yet, so at least it snaps a little better in, but I don't like the little platforms the angels stand on. Gonna try some more ideas to figure something out that looks better before I start on the rest.

I'm going to call this Very Happy Dreadnought finished. Decided not to add much battle damage except where there were obvious dents in the metal.



Rather than the banner pole at the back, I've given him a chimney and what looks like a glowing set of heat exchangers

And some base detail - I think I've finally figured out how to use my pebeo crackle medium
