Welcome to the 17th Unofficial Painting Challenge here on Dakka! Each month, entrants use these challenges as motivation to get painting, push their skills, clear their backlogs and get feedback from the amazing P&M community here. Anyone is free to enter, whether this is your first model or your thousand and first!

This month, the theme is all about beasts, whether that's the wild forces of nature, demonic creatures from other worlds or vicious warriors filled with animalistic rage! As usual, you can interpret this however you like; if you think it's a suitable representation of the theme, it probably is!


How To Enter
- You may enter up to 5 MODELS as a SINGLE ENTRY, and are permitted one entry per member per month. If you enter multiple models, they should ideally be related in some way, such as part of the same squad, unit or scene if you are doing a diorama
- You MUST post a 'proof' picture of your entry in the thread of the state it was in before you started working on it; this must be either unassembled, unpainted, primed or coated a single colour. Entries that do not submit a valid Proof Picture will not be eligible for voting.
- After this, you may post WIP pictures in this thread and your own if you wish, and on completing the entry, you may post up to 5 final pictures IN THIS THREAD that will then be used for voting. Please note that pictures in a montage or collage picture will be considered individual images for this purpose, so while these types of presentation are certainly acceptable, please keep the image limit in mind when compiling them. For example, a collage of 4 images and one separate image would count as your 5 picture allowance.


So What Do I Win?
- Points... and points mean... bragging rights for the next month Following the vote, points will be awarded to every entrant. This year, the Points you receive will be equal to the Percentage of Votes your entry receives in the final Voting thread; if you get 10%, you get 10 points, if you get 6% you get 6 points, so on and so forth.

These points will be used to form a league table, which will be updated month on month as the results come in.


How Long Do I Have?
This challenge begins 1st July and will end at midnight GMT on the 31st July. After this, I shall compile the finished entries into a new thread, and voting will run for 5 days.

I'll be entering a commission that just came in the mail, I finally get to paint some Kingdom Death stuff.

Finally a theme I can relate to!

Hmm. I have too much choice!
I own most of the Confrontation Wolfen and Devourers of Vil Tis...
I also have all the critters I collected for my Titan base..
Picked up a Space Wolf starter to give straight marine painting a go...
Then there's my recent Slaanesh army with the Seekers and Daemonettes that are only primed... Plus Keeper of Secrets.

I need an adult!

just finished riveting this big sod...I may make some further small additions, but he's basically ready for priming now I think
(the "howdah" is technically painted right now, but that's only because it was a second-hand scrap jobber - it's getting a full re-do, don't worry )

I like that very much.

Though I think the tail needs more weaponisation.

hmm...yes, yes you're quite right...now, I just found I have 4 horns from the battlewagon kit sitting around...I could give the tail-club 4 big nasty spikes...or...I could give the tail-club just 2 spikes, and perform a spot of squiggoth dentistry, and replace 2 of his teef with a pair of big orky tusks?...hmm...

I think more tail spikes would be better, but both options have merit.

If the tail doesn’t have enough natural spikes, you could just weld on some jagged bits of armor plate a/o old choppas, as spike substitutes.

Also, more dakka.

I would like to enter, got a good idea and it includes something i've been wanting to try to make for ages.

I'm finally trying to put all the Starbucks stirrers to good use! Don't lie, we all obsessively collect them for hobby uses. Only to end up with a huge collection of paint stirrers

I Second a tail club zobo. Also is the base model some form of triceratops? Possibly lots of smaller spikes to add some gruesome detail and make it a focal point?

hmm...possible options:
2 spikes:

+ 2 tusks?:

or 4 spikes?:


I guess I could carve up some small spikes, same as how I made his teef? and stick a bunch of them on his tail...?
as for more dakka...hmm...well rules-wise, a "big squiggoth" can only take one up to one gun...either a lobba, a kannon, or a zzap gun...the dakka is mostly provided by the 15 angry orks riding it

@Perkustin - yeah, it's a Tamiya 1/35 scale triceratops kit for the base

While I do like the tusks, IMHO the head can do without them, but just two spikes on the tail looks a little weak. If you are going to weaponize that thing, it needs more the two little stabby bits.

Looks very good with 4 spikes!

I think I'm going to hold off my entry until after the 9th, as I have a festival to prep stock for. Then I may have an entry from my back room at home... Trying to do it now would just make me stressed.

yeah, righto...4 tail-spikes it is! - I didn't really think he needed the extra set of tusks, he's got a nice heavy-set grimace as it is

...although now I've decided a few spikes on his tail and armour plates would look pretty good...so, I'll be off for the next couple of hours carving 30-odd sprue-spikes

ZoBo, that is a sweet Squiggoth conversion; I've seen a lot of people try the dinosaur/rhino/elephant conversion and a lot of them look like a dinosaur/rhino/elephant with some Orks strapped to the top. Your's really does look like a Squiggoth Can't wait to see it painted.

Also, proof for this month:



Anghkor Prok unleashing a Kroot hound. Starting with a little bit of yellow on the hound's beak because I mixed the colour, so did a load of hounds at once. Unfortunately all of the others have open mouths, which I also painted, so I can't give you a pack and stay within the rules. So he'll just have to have one faithful hound!

Proof, will definitely be using the cart, maybe the big brute, not decided yet. Want to scratchbuild a horse, Have a chaos marauder horse in reserve but it will need serious work to 'Static' it's pose so either way it's tricky. Had a ton of fun making this Not finished yet, need's to be detailed, bosses on the wheels, yoke and harness for the horse, brackets and sleeves for some of the joints etc. Should have really got the rivet punch to do the tread, i may add some segs or something later.



Also if the cart has a horse and a driver does it count as three models? Should be fine as i only want maybe another model on foot (either the brute or another model) but still. I would imagine a 'vehicle' counts as a single model but if i entered a Dark Eldar raider with ten guys hanging off it, it would have a similar instant wow factor as a Warhammer Regiment and be hard to judge.

As a rule of thumb, one base=1 mini. So the cart, rider and horse would count as 3 minis if they were all separate, but assuming they're stuck together in some fashion and share a base, it will count as one.

Obviously your fully crewed Raider example is an extreme, though to be fair, it sounds cool enough I'd almost be tempted to allow it anyway!

@Perkustin - wow, that cart's coming along real nicely!...although the idea of scratch-building a horse terrifies me!...I have a looong way to go with greenstuff before I could even consider something like that

@Jadenim - thanks a lot man! yeah, I've seen a lot of DIY squiggoths that still looked way too much like the base dinosaur/elephant/etc too, and I was really hoping to avoid that!

Looking good everyone. That Squigoth will be awesome!
My project this month wasn t looking so beasty at all.
But while I m re-doing and -painting my Ork Boyz, I came up with two very beasty looking guyz.

One riding a warthog or something - AND a little boy looking too badass to be set aside.

I ll propably choose the single beast-boy.

Was originally going to do a zombie werewolf, but thought I'd really challenge myself this month and choose 5 of my Wild Orcs. They enjoy beating things into piles of meat, eating piles of meat and charging wildly into battle alongside zombie dinosaurs.

Roughed out the horsey, didn't use any reference but i was thinking of the FW DKoK rough rider horsies so i am hoping for a similar look.

I like the look of those mantic orcs, especially the faces, they look a lot nicer to my eye than other minis i've seen in the range/past.

Hi everyone.

Soz for being away for a while. Had a pretty busy couple of months, which has now finished - weird feeling (more on my blog page soon). But means more painting, so I am entering the Deathwatch Overkill Patriarch (more photos of base build on blog page too).
