Welcome to the 20th 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 'Something Wicked This Way Comes'. As ever, this is open to interpretation, so whether your idea of wicked is a cackling witch, a shambling zombie, a lurking alien or anything else spooky, scary or creepy, it's in!

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 October and will end at midnight GMT on the 31st October. After this, I shall compile the finished entries into a new thread, and voting will run for 5 days.

Oooooo excellent take on the Halloween theme! Now to dig around my projects and see what fits.

Age of Sigmar, Genestealer Cult or Necromunda... Anyone feel like chipping in and saying what they think I should enter?

Bye bye Dakkadakka, happy hobbying! I really enjoyed my time on here. Opinions were always my own :-)

How about some kind of Necromunda/Stealer Cult conversion thingamajig, proper Blanche-esque? Might be a nice challenge for you to take on a different style, and would fit the theme perfectly.

I was thinking of trying to sculpt something but I'd get to stressed out due to how much stuff i need to get done and how much time work is tasking up these days so will just do some chaos guys.

Oh, how I would love to. I don't really have any conversion skills yet, and probably wouldn't be able to make something good in a month :(

I am leaning towards doing a unit this time. Either my Genestealer Aberrants or a unit of 5 Scavvies. I'll keep rummaging around in my boxes to see if I have anything else a little better.

Have you thought what you will be doing?

And Jan, looking forward to seeing you do some guildball!

No idea on my end yet. There are a few Carnevale minis that I'm waiting to come back into stock that would fit perfectly, but there's no ETA on those yet so I doubt I'll manage to get those in time...

Likewise, I've got another Joker and Harley Quinn coming at the end of the month like last year, but they're also not likely to get here on time unless they're dispatched earlier.

I might see if the local GW has the Cairn Wraith or Wight King in stock next time I'm down there, I've been wanting those two for a while and did do some pretty successful test-paints for my planned Undead last month... We shall see...

It's either them or whatshisname from Inq54. Mutant fella. My prizes from the Eavier Metal comp arrived the other day so I have the werewolf queen by Michael Kantaros to paint. But I think that'll be saved up till I've got skin painting a little better down.

Time to clear a random mini off the back of the bench!

Chammady Drovenge. One of the bad guys from the Council of Thieves Pathfinder adventure path. Mini belongs to a friend, who ran it, and just fielded her unpainted for the fight (where we punked her is no time) Asked if I would slap some paint on the mini when I got around to it. So here we go...

I'm trying to figure if an old school Harlequin Dreadnought would be "wicked" enough. I think that's pushing it.

Works for me! Harlies of any sort definitely fit in under the category really.

The Harlequin dreadnought with the big grinning mask face on the front? That would be fantastic! I haven't seen one of those in many, many years.

Yep...that's the plan. Maybe I'll submit that - have to source the jetbike face first, and I'm thinking a distortion cannon for one...

I was really struggling to think of a "halloween-y" model in my possession, but thanks to the slightly more open title, and somebody mentioning Genestealer Cult, I suddenly remember I have a bunch of unpainted Space Hulk genestealers. They're definitely wicked and unless you've very lucky they're definitely coming your way!

Proof:



And a little bit of progress too!

What say you about Orks, Paradigm?

I know I haven't participated in a while, and probably won't finish, but what do you think about a Painboy?

INSANE army lists still available!!!! Now being written in 8th edition format! I have Index Imperium 1, Index Imperium 2, Index Xenos 2, Codex Orks Codex Tyranids, Codex Blood Angels and Codex Space Marines!

Now I find myself wishing I'd bought a copy of Lost Patrol so I could enter some Genestealers...

Oh well, I'll have to figure out something else. I'd do another one of my three Sorcerers, but I'd rather not do the exact same thing twice in a row.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 1/27/19, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~11200 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1300 | Space Wolves: ~3400

I think i'm going to do another Harlequin character for my Harlequins. A little boring because I submitted my Shadowseer last month, but whatever - progress on my Harlequin army is a plus! Death Jester it is.

Something wicked this way comes!

Blood Sacrifice to Khorne






Going to do another conversion this month with a bunch of Khorne bits lying around in the ol' box. I'm going to try and dig out all the most demonic stuff I can find, as well as sculpt something Halloween-y for a base. Here's the proof with the bits I'll be using:

They're just bloodletter legs, the bloodletter had been assembled, so I chopped him off about midway up the torso to leave the two legs intact. In the spirit of Halloween, I'm planning to add some hooves and fur to them with greenstuff to give him a more traditional biblical style demon feel, rather than the over-the-top fantasy monster type of thing bloodletters usually have going on.

Oh, if harlequins are in, I will definately be putting one (or more) up! Good excuse to get started painting them. I'll have to figure out which ones I want to work on...

And I might throw the Black Plague partially painted model on as a stretch goal for myself. Just so I actually finish him... because leaving a model half painted is bad for my painting mojo... Black Plague has been sitting about half done for a few months now...

Btw, thank you for putting this whole thing on Paradigm. It has really been helping me keep my motivation up

Good luck everyone, looking forward to seeing the Halloween inspired entries

I've been thinking about this a fair bit over the last few days to work out what to enter, I did want to do some more Ork Star Wars but that doesn't sit with the theme quite right.

Currently my 2 favourite options are an Ork puppet Master (dressed as a gentleman Ork) controlling a grot (dressed as Chucky) or since theres been a lot of talk about them recently an Ork Genestealer cult. I'll post a proof when I deciede

For the third month in a row - I'm out :( But I guess my honeymoon is a great reason to not be able to paint much this month Hopefully I'll be back in for the November challenge!

Buttery - hope you're feeling a little better and good luck with your dragon second time round

Midget - an Ork/Grot Chucky mini would be awesome. Always love to see your conversions.

Since the theme is scary stuff, how about these Kroot:

These guys have a ritual of eating their victims after a battle, which is actually pretty scary gak. My intention is to paint all of these, then cherrypick the five best ones and post that as my entry. We'll see if it works out that way.

As an aside, its funny that I was lamenting not having Lost Patrol and those Genestealers, but yesterday I picked up that game and now have those models. Oh well, I'd still rather do Kroot as they fit in with the rest of my models better.
