Always excellent. Glad to see the young 'un coming along. Where's the new Grandmaster from?

@Graven - Got it from spikybits limited resin print run

@Gits - urgh, head down brush up eh?

Update: So I got plenty of time working on the HQ's, however Mid November I pulled something in my upper back which took me out of commission for almost two weeks, so what I was actually able to get done was smaller than the previous month.

Anyway onto some picture as I'm sure thats what people have come to see








And done


Individual models from that lot
















One of my players in my DnD group got a heroforge model and I offered to paint it for her






And done



Then started on the final LoC for my brother




If anyone has any questions feel free to ask!

Sorry to hear about your back woes. Standard bearers look especially snazzy. Nice tiefling, I've toyed with designed up a Blue Devil for DC on Hero Forge, how's the quality to paint?

Man that's really lovely work on those marines Knightley. Re-defining crisp and grey for the new millennium.

Love the work on the demoness... the stripy pants are awesome.

I like the script and heraldry on the shoulders, it really makes them look knightly and elite.

@Graven - Yeah, it was still giving me a bit of jip in early December as well, much better now! the fine quality stuff from HeroForge is good, you still get the lines as its printed and not injected, but a very very very fine grit sand paper can take away the harshness, but overall they are really good.

@Gits - Thanks! The pants were a last minute addition after the vest was plain I wanted something a little different and when I looked online I saw a pinstripe suit and though "why not, lets give it a try"

@Gwyn - Thank you squiggles are one of the things that I am apparently known for?

Update: With my back still giving me a little bit of jip meant that painting was still slow, then the new expac for World of Warcraft dropped, then the end of year holidays showed up, and its summer here. So I'm ashamed to say, I got sod all done in Dec and Jan, a few things but nothing to write home about :(

On to the models: Finished up the second Lord of Change for my brothers Demon army



Both Together


I then got side tracked by a chaos dragon repaint for my DnD Game
Primed

First Dry brush

3rd drybrush

4th drybrush

Details (Basically done)


Onto the next 5 primaris marines



Edge highlighting the black

More colours being added

@Gits - Thanks Gits, I've certainly notice that I've slowed down in the past two years, I am still chugging along but certainly not doing 200+ a year

@Graven - Tell me about it, my paint water never looked so weird

Update: A bit late this month, I managed to get at least two models done, which isn't a lot but still better than zero

Primaris Techmarine
With the armour done moved onto the haft and the parchment


And with that the model is done - well basically, I forgot to take a photo with the grass on


Onto the DnD Model
Skin and some other cloth and leather base coats applied

A bit of focus on the cloak


Washes applied


Picking out the skin and inside of the cloak


And after some refinining the model is done



Onto some more Primaris Lieutenants
Base coats

Washes
\
Layering and face

Details

and done



Moved onto a Judicar
Base colours

Washes and started on the robe/cloak

Thanks Gwyn appreciate the comment!

Update: A slow month, but a few models done. Upon uploading realised that some of the pictures in my photo gallery became corrupted meaning I lost 3-4 WIP pieces and one final shot for the Lieutenant, so Will take another shot of him and upload next month.

On to the work - Finished up the Judicar




Started and finished a Primaris Lieutenant




Done


- note - Will get a front shot for next month.

Then mid way through the month a work mates asked if I could paint some DnD models for him, of course I said yes




These are currently on the desk and should be done in short order

Oh and stealth edit, My son finished a large bunch of Goblins over the past... 4-5 months (he gets distracted lots)

I like the dnd figs, always nice to see what else you turn your hand to, and good to see the spawn is turning out crisp and... Green?!
