It’s never too later for a last minute entry. Nice to see more people tossing their hats into the ring.

Thanks. The starcannons are probably my favorite part of the model.

Nominally I call them Saim-Hann, and use their sigil. But I inverted the palette a bit, using black instead of white for most things, and swapping which is primary on models like guardians. So a lot of red vehicles (they go faster) but the troopers are mostly black armored with red helmets. My gallery I should check if i’ve painted enough of them in the comp to field a viable army. And get a new army shot one of these days.

Not a big fan of the model. Should have left it in parts to paint; I hate it when I can’t get a brush places. Should not be noticeable on the tabletop, bit I know. Not going to get to his buddy. He might show up in a later competition, or just slowly work his way across the workbench in the background while I do other things. I was used to Eldar vehicles just zipping across my paintbench in no time. But they are mostly smooth panels and clean lines.

We have about a week left to go until the month is over. So pick up the pace! Also start giving some thought to what you want to do next month. Open round, so anything goes (within the normal scope of the contest). Old projects, new hotness, last guys to finish off a project. Whatever you feel up to doing. Use this as an excuse to get some paint down.


I've been trying painting three of those for the past ten years, they look great but I loathe painting them. Great job all the same though!

Cranking out the flyers this week. Been getting some game time with these too and AI is surprisingly fun with a good learning curve. Have absolutely loads of flyers to do but will get at least a few done for the deadline. The bases are minis into themselves as well!

Calling these done now. I'll probably base them at some point, but the models themselves don't technically need it

While loving the rules for grav-cutters, I feel the models are just ridiculous suicide machines. So I have now completed my slightly more believable suicide machines

An internet cookie for getting the reference, but the Vortices are now airborne! They have a couple of spares, and an earlier prototype that didn't... didn't work so well, shall we say... Lessons were learned...

Here's the final pictures. I posted the "Megadrag Scrapjet" pics earlier, but I combined all of them under one picture.

Wooooooow… totally not the reference I was going for, but it also works. Works so well, so internet cookies all round!

Also awesome buggies Ezki.

Looking damn good, Flinty - if you're going to base the flying ones, I'd suggest a really low base - just skimming above the ground - to still make sense in Zone Mortalis games.

Tinfoil for the tarps, by any chance?

Thanks! Yerg... jetbikes in underhive tunnels... reminds me of this (hmm.. time link isn't working. skip to 60s)




Kitchen roll and watered down PVA for the tarps. It gives a slightly more fabricy look, and is naturally textured, compared to tinfoil.

Ah! Must remember that, looks good. Better than actual fabric which can, ironically, end up looking too coarse.

Not the model I was hoping to get done for this month (I had wanted to get Baron Mordo from my Convocation roster painted for this), but still a solid back-up. Starlord, Legendary Outlaw, painted as part of a commission project that unfortunately burnt me out a bit near the end of the month (thus no painting was done hence Baron Mordo not getting completed in time).

Proof picture of half the commission project taken at the start of the month. Starlord is top right.

Hi All

Been a very busy month for me had since I had to take on more work so really not had much time to do anything.

Did a quick rummage around and found these guys in box, I'll be painting over the green with a different green so hope no one minds that.



Good luck everyone, going to be a last minute rush but hope i can get something basic in

Space Santa has proved to be quite elusive, but Ordo Hereticus agents managed to snap three pict-captures of the malefactor has he prowled about the ice planet of Valhalla. He bellowed, shaking gelatinously, "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!" Inquisition researchers suspect that this imprecation may be related to some sort of pre-Imperial cult practices of the thunder warriors of ancient Terra.

Likewise and sorry to hear the commission wasn't that fun. Always good to see more of them creeping up and your painting style lends itself perfectly for them!

Oh, don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the commission! But I was painting all of last month (the models in the proof pic were only half of the commission) and then the first 2 and a half-ish weeks of this month non-stop to get it done because AMG released Convocation and I also want to get them done by the end of the year for my own collection. I just ended up feeling burnt out so I took the last two weeks of the month to just reset and recharge.
