I'm generally not a fan of the anime style heads (I prefer more naturalistic heads), but they do look much better (less manly) than the heads the kits come with.

Yeah the SOB models are very unattractive to me as a player mostly because the heads. Those anime ones actually look perfect to me for the body sculpts. Where did you get them? (File or print)

Probably won’t get this finished in time but here’s a scary Toy Story-inspired Myphitic Blight Hauler that I’ve thrown together.

Gonna throw in this night lords praetor. Probably swap the head and maybe the shoulder pads. Also got the kruleboyz standard bearer aswell depending on how much time I have after.


That Kruleboyz model is somehow an excellent scuplt IMO, can't wait to see what you come up with it!

Even if you'd happen to run out of time, please paint it..

You may be in luck. The praetor is finished barring the trophy racks I've used to replace his little jump pack flags, and the banner bearer is in progress. Here's a wip

I'm going to go a little meta on the challenge, and paint something that's terrified me to attempt in case I get it wrong for over a decade - a Great Knarloc. I was lucky enough to get a second one at a good price around the same time, but as it's in the same pose and some idiot (me) botched sticking the legs on somewhat, I've got some work to do sculpting on a harness and enough baggage to hide the poor joins.

Oh, and of course the Great Knarloc beat out the ever more oddly named Terran dinosaurs for a starring role in Jurassic Planet in M35, so that probably counts too right?

I painted this guy up as a test model:


I didn't want to use a lot of red, as it seems a little too on the nose. I ended up going with a Gundam-inspired paint scheme. I haven't decided what to do with the disks on the shoulder pads, and the gun kind of blends in with the body suit. Also, I'm thinking about doing some weathering on the armor to distract from how asymetrical the sculpting is

I'm really not enjoying painting these models. They are very much of their time (just look at those Donald Trump-sized hands), and I just can't seem to get inspired. That said, I don't think I've ever been defeated by a model, and I'm not going to start now.

Now showing Enforcers for Deadzone!

Painting Total as of 9/21/2021: 74 plus an iron golem and five spider nests and all the obstacles for Dreadball Xtreme and four trapdoors and a cauldron and some teleport disks and three SF buildings and some resin barricades!

Painting Total as of 12/26/2020: 185 plus two mechs and the Throne of Bone

Its official - I love this kit! So much texture, it pretty much paints itself, although I've still got more to do.

Any chance I can tag this batman black mask onto my entry? I forgot to take photos before putting a couple of layers on but the model was only released last week so there's no foul play involved.

I'm in. I just finished making a Waaagh! banner for the nob that I entered in February's competition. The nob was completed previously, so I'll crop him out of my final pics and just focus on the banner itself.
Proof and progress pics:








We have nothing to fear but completing our entries in time

Good luck all, and great entries so far!

Well black mask is done after a 3 day marathon. Knight models make some really great pieces full of atmosphere and character. Now I have a week to finish the orc.

I’m calling this done now. I’m pleased with the Ambull itself, especially the blue glow effects. The green I think just about works. The little critters have not come out as I had originally envisaged, so I’m just going to stop now at the point of them being ok for target practice

I had honestly wanted to paint Lauka Vai for this month's challenge, but just never found the motivation to pick her up. In fact, I haven't had any motivation/inspiration for anything AoS or 40k related, as I'm uh... a round-shape deep into Marvel Crisis Protocol.

I did paint Mysterio this month, and his illusions do play off the fear of his enemies, so I think that is also appropriate.
