Question: how to upload pictures on the forum and inline the picture to the topic post? I dont know if this is a thing, but there are pics clickable to gallery images, others clickable to picture only pages and others just inline inline to the post...?

If you've got pictures uploaded to your gallery, then on the right side of the picture you want to upload there are some links you have to copy into the post reply, you want the first link for forum posts.

Finished. Nothing fancy here, but getting more of the Pile of Shame ready for battle. These guys have hands, rather then talons like the last batch. Should help keep the broods apart on the table if they go after the same meal. Running low on bugs, probably time to buy some more...

Ah, makes sense.
Thank you

Got the bases done and gave Grashrak some Spicy Rocks for Extra Blood.

I finished the final players for my Dreadball team:


The photo is crummy, but that's probably for the best as I'm not particularly enamored of the models. I also finished the captain:



Another crummy photo. Sorry. He's bent so far forward at the waist that he's quite difficult to photograph. Here's the whole team:


I'll go back in a few days and choose which models to actually enter in the challenge.

Now showing Deadzone Rebs!

Painting Total as of 6/30/2022: 74 plus eleven pieces of street scenery and a wrecked car

Painting Total for 2021: 113 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 seven SF buildings and some resin barricades!

Josh, is it the paintjobs you're not enamored with or the sculpts themselves?

I think you did a great job with the paint, but I'm not a huge fan of all the sculpts. The beefier ones look much better than weedier ones.

I dont play Dreadball, but Tentacle Bro kicked the tree, farted on the dogs and ran away (https://youtu.be/KCzwyFHSMdY, more for the kicking, im still laughing but) my ass on day 6 of the challenge.

The team photo is nice

Automatically Appended Next Post:
1) Gave Draknar some teeth
2) Used Technical Stormshield for playing, didnt realise how shiny, will take pics before Stormshield next time!
3) Reduced desk lamp intensity and got closer with the camera

These are final images, doubt I will change anything now they are varnished.

Everything is green!

I finished Hela and in the process found out that I only have a single normal green paint in my collection. That would have been good to know ahead of time...



Side note: Crisis Protocol models are fun.

Right! Got moving with Enforcers for Deadzone/ Firefight this month. Forgot to post pre-paint shot.
Spoiler:

Horde. Primed 02/05 (as the date-stamp says)


Should cover it?

And for sheer mayhem, it has to be the assault enforcers:

And I think this lot were the better of the two 5-man units. Lots of fun with ridiculous amounts of OSL. Better pic, of all 10, below.
Spoiler:



If I have time I'll take a better photo of the 5, so this is a kinda placeholder. I just always forget.

Finished up my Sword Brothers! With time to spare... lets pretend I'm actually going to work on something else

There are parts that I feel are still left undone and probably could have planned the shields better to tie together, but perfection leads to nothing being accomplished. However, comments and criticism welcome!

All images not in spoiler submitted for judging.

Our Knights Templar carry a diverse array of weaponry. They stand ready to unleash death upon the enemies of the Emperor.


Each one bears the shield of the campaign they earned their way into the Marshal's household on their cloak. Their backpack tells of an oath of brotherhood will fellow Astartes.


Their tilt shields bear memory to a current quest



Their shin plate shares the story of a great feat performed as a Sword Brother of the Marshal

I’m afraid I’ve simply run out of time this month to get painting done before I go away, so I’m out unfortunately :(

Yes, got to keep those eyes of theirs blue.

I finally found time to get stuck in to the Ohmu kit. So many legs!


But with the snout done the rest of the kit is quite simple, and should come together quickly.

Hi All

I've been away with work a lot this month (and still am away until tomorrow) I took my paints with me so I could paint in the Hotel rooms.

Realised I hadn't posted a proof yet so here it is, finished model photos will be up tomorrow night when I get back home.

Nothing says Mayham to me like having a mad snotling appear inside someone
Mek Operators of Shokk Attack Guns gather Snotlings, who are brainless enough to serve as its ammo. They are fired out of the gun, driven out of their tiny minds in the process. This has the effect of terrifying the Snotlings, making them exit the portal in a frenzy, ripping and tearing at anything they encounter as they leave the portal. This is effective because the Mek often tries to aim the gun directly on top of enemy soldiery, and they emerge inside living creatures


Proof

I honestly have no idea why, I've just been hit with such a massive painters block (for miniatures) the past few weeks, it's just a struggle to want to paint anything 28mm or 40mm scale. Got a model done, but not entirely happy with it (and for whatever reason, I'm struggling to get decent photos of him, but c'est la vie). Maybe next month will be better.

My entry this month is the king of chaos and mayhem (on the Marvel side), the Goblin himself.

A lot of great entries, mine falls under the heading of last minute painting to avoid a gap in the competition calendar and sadly he won't be getting a better photoshoot..

Meet Callahan, Biker, Baker and Underhive Troublemaker. Not happy with the face. Tried out the Speedpaints, but either didn't shake well enough or it's supposed to be this thin. And after seeing the closeups its clear, I painted some hair as skin... ah well.

Edit: Redid the face a bit, but could only be buggered for one new pic, the couch beckons...

So I haven't got near to my originally intended banshee wraithlord entry due to work blowing up on me, so I've pivoted to doing an actual banshee (exarch) and I've been feverishly trying to get her finished for the past few days. I'm painting gems and basing atm, but I'm probably not going to get photos done tonight. Hope it's okay to take photos tomorrow and post then?
