Miguelsan-- It is a pretty stereotypical color for that isn't it? Eventually will put in an order for the last two members of its lance...

Also, lots of finished stuff, most if it with very old start dates:
The demon man (recent) and two kitsunes (started in 2018...):


And the dragonman:


Last kitsune just needs a lot more work, not sure when I'll get to him, but I started him later anyways.

What mechs will you order? I have a double Catapult, Vindicator, Raven lance that in theory has good synergy.

Planning on a Helepolis and either a naga or an O-bakemono, running it as a merc artillery lance with the raven as a spotter.

Some more mechs, almost done, just need basing. A star of solhama warriors from Clan Smoke Jaguar's Omega Galaxy:


Did some freehand checks two different ways, one just using making red crosses on yellow and filling in vs a micron pen grid and fill. I like the color effect better on the first, on the two assaults, but the second really was a lot neater and easier. Try to get them finished and final pics for the challenge tomorrow...

And the Smoke Jaguar star is done:


Eventually may give them a vehicle star as a binary buddy, just to rub salt in for OCs that don't even have names yet, but that'll likely wait, need to get to those rats to finish out the IG platoon...

Cool updates and congrats on getting more of the backlog finished. I never have the patience to keep stuff I started, if I haven't painted it after three years I often sell it

Thanks Viterbi-- helps on keeping things I've got space and kinda rarely clear my desk to know when something is sitting that long.

Speaking of, horror-marine Mashup I did several years ago on the left, tonights playing with speedpaints on the right:

Kinda coming around on it, still not sold for the red.

And the rest of tonights paint night work, brining the pirates to near finished, and doing some fur drybrush:

Think the greens need work, and obviously the bases, but still close. Gnoll is soft tone, mid brown, and soft tone over pink, and then a thin Iraqi sand layer for the fur.

Also work I did from yesterday, playing with some griselle (or really skeleton bone drybrush) underpaint to try to punch up the gnolls for the challenge:


Hopefully I actually paint thin enough to make the effort worth it...

Finished the pirates:



And started colors on the gnolls, not sure this is the right color though:


Hopefully keep moving on them...

A little progress on the rats:


And some more colors on the knolls--green is going to end up metallic bronze I think. Blue I want to end up kind of a blued steel color, not sure how its getting there though.

I also use micron pens on my mechs, but usually it's just to give more depth to details. Sometimes going overboard. I'd say the 1st method looks better as it's more colorful.

I just find the second method neater on the lines, but agree on more colorful.

Also, paint night results--still no progress on the Typhon, but pretty well done I think with this sslyth except the base:


Likewise, close to happy with the wolf fur:

probably just going to do ivory underneath instead of the grey next time, and needs some feathering on color patches, maybe a drybrush, but mostly happy.

plus, started some mechs from the Thumpers assault mech mercenary battalion:


A ways to go there though.

Yellow not only is such a headache to paint, but looks weird to me on mechs. Might be my tendencies to desert camo everything.

Aku-san: thanks!
Nevelon: thank you! Think he needs a bit more blade work, but otherwise just trying to figure how to base him, as it'll set what bases I need to use if I ever do those dark eldar I've got in my back cabinet...

Miguelsan-- its being a pain yeah, but I do like flashy color schemes for mechs, weird because I like less flashy, lower greeble designs. Needed a smoother prime than I got is the main thing I think. Did a lemon yellow broad highlight, an orange all over wash and a magenta wash targeted at the undersides and ended up here:


Kinda rough, feeling it needs another moon yellow pass to tie everything together, and then another white cleanup, black muzzle, and checkering pass, and the faceplate glares, and it'll be as done as its going to be.

Checkering done. Need to clean them up a bit, do windshields, and then base:

Kinda a grab bag from paint night, bit off, but finally got a heroforge model from 2019 done:


And started some kitty adventurers from reaper:


Kinda feels rough and below quality, but hey, done is done, and its more paint than I started with.

I need to get to Dakka more often! So much good stuff! You are really pushing limits with old and simple figures!

Painting progress tracker:
2017: 50 of 50 planned; 2018: 80 of 60 planned; 2019: 75 of 75 planned

Pledge 2020:
6 to sculpt, 75 to paint (2/57 done)

Thanks Wirecat!

More slow progress on the rats, including adding in the regimental banner bearer:


Some slow work on the gnolls, wash of beige red, and glaze of french blue:


Not sure they're getting done this month. Hoping I took no-color pics of the mechs, because I may have to swap to them, figure a lance of ac/20 toting assault mechs probably counts for mayhem. Speaking of, finished:



Got another week to get the gnolls done, lets see if they make it, or I get distracted on another cool thing...

Something about bright yellow with checks makes me think Orks, which equals mayhem. And yes, assault mechs with AC20’s do cause some. My mindset is so 40k that I read “Assault” as close combat specialists, not as a weight class. But then I remembered what kind of damage the big guys do with punches/kicks, so it checks out.

Nevelon--amusingly, that paint scheme was Lamenters inspired, so 40k works...

Also, apparently found some motivation, down to final details and basing on the gnolls:


Hoping I get the banner I want to do and basing in...

That yellow blinds! I guess it's a passive protection system of the 3060s era

Miguelsan--well, supposed to be the Thumpers, a whole battalion of assaults who as part of that really want you to know they are here. Blinding obvious is part of the brief.

A little more work from tuesday paint night:
Speedpaint test on chaos space marines:

Right is strait speedpaint, left is speedpaint and speedpaint medium.
Wasn't happy with the color, so overpainted with some ivory:

Color is looking OK, need to do up the details.

And a quick harbinger of heru, though snapped the pic at home as I forgot at the shop:


And some progress on the gnolls for the challenge, just needs basing and banner work:

Hopefully get them done this week.

Got them done:




Also based up the sslyth:



And got some colors on the test marines:

Not intended to be christmassy, just didn't get the bronze on the one to the right yet.

Also played a titanicus game with a freind as his first, though he's actually following it much more than me. He had 2 reavers (vulcan, gatling, melta and apoc, laser blaster, volcano) , two hounds (both tourney pattern), and 2 cerastus lancers in a ferrox. I had a 5 hound lupercal with two corrupted titans (one turbos and vulcan, one plas and vulcan, both preternatural grace, immaterial sheild and demon bile), and three with just paired guns, one each vulcan, turbos, and plasmas. Was having too much fun, kept forgetting pictures, so just got the board:


Turn 2, I'm the green and purple at bottom, he's green and grey at top:


Turn 4:


And end of turn 4 and game:


As you can see, I got tabled, and only one of his titans even took structure damage (and his 2 cerastus popped after takng down my princeps senioris.) Overbunched my deployment, and didn't salvage it, and he played his strategems and positioning well (and also made a rediculous number of void saves, and got a nice ammo explosion that set up a reactor explosion turn 2 that just gutted my forces). Still a fun time, and hopefully we'll do it again soon.
