u971's Lab.
First off Welcome,How And what i will be painting will be varied I Will be making more effort,spending more time than your average painter to go that little bit further with detailing,parts placement and basing themes,And try my best to keep this updated with new models and WIP at least monthly.

Favor using as much scratch build stuff when i can and have the option and time,currently not making any terrain,buildings,boards,trees etc,focusing on purely models,preferring basic paint schemes,
using clean highlights,staying away from drybrushing on most of my models using only on tank size vehicles,Collecting several different army's,excluding dark/eldar never really liked them,currently working up to Space Marines (Ultra) Followed by,
Chaos Marines & Tyranids,before working my way into the small Necron & Ork army's i have unpainted,along with additional Imperial Guard/Astra Militarum Units to my 1.5k+ existing and painted models,Randomly Alternating which army's i paint to keep things interesting.

Current Army's 30k/40k:(Imperial Guard,Space Marines,Orks,Necrons,Tyranids,Chaos,Tau)
Overly Ambitious Goal for the Year: Get at least 3 full Size Squads Painted,and or minus 1squad for a vehicle or small building instead.

Current Army's 6mm World War 2:(Axis,Allies)

Previously Worked on:Massive Amounts of Objective Markers.

Target this month:Finish up some Axis Bombers,He-111 and a Ju-88.(with the half a month that's left)
Currently Working on:See above.

They are in the works,working on the below genestealers they are about half painted sorta,will post them with paint on in a few hours only ever painted 5termagants not so long ago see below,so its slow going getting the hang of painting new parts,i'am so not used to painting insect like things.

Edit: The Pictures below are the stuff currently being processed,slowly tidying up the stealers one of the top right shows how the main body will end up,that ones just missing paint on the claws & basing.
Leman russ weapon options in the upper right first picture.


The Mortar Pit without crew,more objective marker scrap&fuel,more brick bases,looking to eventually build a couple more brick bases for a future squad of likely fancy cadians.

Tyranids Completed! Brood Below.
First Genestealers i have ever painted,so forgive the parts i messed up,as i said before tyranids are totally new to me,still they came out okay i think few parts i'am happy with others not so much,things i learned from painting genestealers "damn that was annoying" ,next brood will paint better with a slightly different paint scheme,far less and better applied caroburg crimson,different and more purple carapace,although this brood was supposed to be a all basic first wave no bio weapon heads or morphs,so i kinda did achieve that much with them.



Of Lesser Noteworthiness Also Completed the Mortar Pit,Without Crew,See Below.

Bought a Basing upgrade,since i was running low on the sand i was using,lots of choice now,think i will likely use a fair few of the tiny little stones perfect size for small bases.



Below the squad i will be painting next month,Squad Octavian Battle for Macragge Edition,painting the above nids burned me out a bit,likely paint some bits while i wait a while,will be glad to paint some damn guns after them lot,the below pic will also serve as next months proof pic for the challenge.



Battle for Macragge Force Fields,Thunderhawk Homing Beacon & Fusion Core (Nuke) likely do these first before the above squad.



And lastly another Upgrade,to my paint&basing stuffs storage,along with added tiles for easy cleanup,besides glues waters & paints are starting to eat the tabletop!

Finished up some stuff been working on,see what below,as well as testing out my new basing kit,built a bunch of additional objective markers to add to my now overflowing boxfull,as well as some other random markers,theme is crates wooden crates,as i see a stupid lack of them in the imperial guard,really there should be more crates made of wood not "adamantium"

Number Crates.


Named Crates (Baseless) so can be stacked in buildings etc.

Nice looking collection of objectives/scatter bits.

I like the genestealers, The bold red of the claws plays off very nicely on the pale carapace.

Good luck with those Ultras. I finally got around to painting my copies of them around when we got out 6th ed codex, and shiny new kits. Was hard to focus through those old push-fits. Still a decent squad though. I keep on meaning to field my pilot, just to get him on the table. I figure use him as a counts-as armourum cherub for a dev squad.

Looking very well done! Man did i have a lot of trouble with that pilot back the first time i tried to paint him.

Thanks! first stealers i have painted,but they came out nice which i was "not" expecting.

Also yeah i have a few objectives and such and not so slowly adding to them,will make more of them milktop ones in various colors,as well as a few 40mm based objectives but different to all my others,have the mental plans already ,figured the round containers would look sci fi enough and look good stacked around one or more of them Munitorum Armored Containers or a bastion,as for the ultramarine's figured there will be annoying bits being push fit more worried about insignia,likely to try freehand the armplates nothing fancy just some roman numerals,after a bunch of practice that is.
I plan on using the pilot as a demolitions guy in the future with a funky void bomb in a suitcase or something equally dramatic.

Same,the simple variety are quicker to make and more 40k legit regarding rules that is,and thanks the crates were made out of popsicle stick wood,very simple to make.

Nice Amount of New Additions to my pile,Will be painting them all as Ultramarines,some pics below,Damn! that's alot of sprue.
Betrayal at Calth.
x30 Legion Veteran Tactical Marines. Points: 160 Per Squad? = 480 Points.
x5 Cataphractii Terminators.[With Weapon options] =200 Points.
x1 Cataphractii Terminator Captain.[With Relic Sword] =130 Points.
x1 Contemptor Dreadnought.[With Kheres Pattern Assault Cannon] =185 Points.
x1 Legion Chaplain.[With Plasma Pistol] = 115 Points.
Total =1110 Points.





Notes on my entry to this months painting challenge,decided to slow down painting not in a rush this month,
The Reason is i might actually end up painting almost every model i have this year,At the rate i'am completing models,and ideally i would like a squad or two of different army's left to paint,
that way i have some models to paint next year.



Objective Marker Related.
Still making markers but also taking my time with them,still even so managed to Make a full set of chemical weapon spill NBC Markers,
[dip magazines in hazardous/nuclear/chemical waste = poisoned ammo] same as the other most recent builds,A 40mm plus the three 25mm base set versions,
Along with a Comms Nexus,which i was going for a aliens style theme lots of big dishs,but came out as necromunda or sci fi looking due to lack of any dish shaped bits,so went with aerials,will post them all in a few days when complete,
No more 25mm bases anyway I have used 40+ of them,so the next markers i make will be biggest yet,most likely 60mm dioramas of something,probably an ammo dump a sizable one,and some archeotech artifacts in funky jars along with some little eye catching pieces,along with trial rules for each marker as usual.

Also some to be repaired terrain & buildings,never found a good way to store such things,maybe when i someday fix them up and base them into city of death ruins.

The BaC box is packed full of goodness. Part of me wants to get another one, I had a ton of fun with the first one. But I also like some variety in my paintbench. Still, if you are thinking about 30k and building a legion, it is a solid core of bodies.

I’d not worry about running out of things to paint. There are always going to be new shiny things you will need to pick up.

Looking forward to having a nice size force of ultras eventually that is,as for running out of things to paint you are right there,still only 2 things i see myself getting in the future apart from more paint,a company command squad,and scout snipers.

Still taking it slow i mean compare to my usual painting speed,getting a stage done a day kinda approach feels like i'am getting slightly better results,also gives me time to get objective markers done,so many ideas i have to make in model form.

Nice work on the pilot.

How many objectives do you need? If is that just how you do scatter terrain?

Thanks,As for how many objectives i need honestly have no idea,there were i mean are a ton of mission types of which most don't have any kind of themed markers,I have goggled what I wanted while there are some examples similar to mine,not one looks like i thought they should or don't exist at all,leading to me having to make them,there are a few more i have left to make not going to run out of ideas quickly,parts are my only limiting factor,otherwise i would literally make 1000s of objective markers one for every possible scenario.

And the scatter bits naa just making 3 more of the 3-colors of the bottlecap ones,they are to go with my munitorum armored containers,likely use as a large city armory,or stacked around my bastion,after that only terrain bits i will make is wooden crates lots of them,prefer modular terrain anyway not got all that much terrain as it go's,most is in disrepair,which is why the amount of small bits,well until i gather the will to take on painting the few resin pieces and fixing the old buildings I have.

@Cleatus,Thanks.

Blog Update (Completed Challenge Entry) Ultramarines squad half [Octavian],along with roman numerals and livery of the 2nd company which turned out not bad,although the U's not so much so i improvised and it looks good went for mini u's and scrolling,also learning new skills and perfecting others,Small Hobby Upgrade bought new skin paints as the age old paints i'am using are ok but i know i could do skin alot better,also more bases for you guessed it more objective markers,and a sprue of skulls for which I have a plethora of uses.

Enjoyed painting the below squad learned a few things mainly acquiring the clean crisp edge highlighting i wanted which i can now do to above acceptable levels,all the better for the next batch of marines,while I could practice alot more freehand designs and i will until i can freehand all them annoying shaped U's,also getting better at applying washes followed by now very little cleanup,which leaves a better neater finish,also learned painting a batch for a time critical challenge adds unneeded pressure and stress to get them completed,so next time a couple of models seems more manageable,Besides the next challenge looks like it's going primal as such all i have that fits that theme is a few choppy orks,will see next month but i would like to enter again.

Squad Octavian (Ultramarines) First Squad Half.


Squad Octavian Livery/Insignia.

Thinking on what i'am painting next month,as i said prefer to mix it up,alternating what i paint human to alien back and forth,being as though next month is Primal,and I just done a bunch of marines,some tyranids it is,will be doing the below,and as a single "Spore Mine Infestation Cluster" likely x4 Exploding Mines and one 40mm Infestation,and at a later date the acid & poison cluster,well as long as life allows it that is it's still a good time off in the future.



Either way also trying to quickly paint up these and the bike+biker.


Apart from that just finished reading the story part of the fall of cadia,the hell noo kell's dead I liked that dude seriously,and what the hell happened to creed wisked off by a steel giant to the great beyond or whatever so random.

Back to making objective markers,completed a big one,my best marker yet if i do say so myself,not going into construction details,unless asked,no point.
As for what i'am making next,not totally sure was thinking either big fat ammo dump a tyranid ammo dump sliding towards that unusual idea,and or some small chaos themed stuff not done anything evil looking in a long time,could make a large nid digestion pool snaz it up some could also be interesting,then there is Necromunda Theme like the below which is black holing me into making as they look so much more interesting..will decide after I finished this months entry and a marine biker should give me time to pick which and what next.





Also painting up my spore mines about 50% done already,also same on 6 Ultras one biker,needing only insignia highlighting and tidy up,then I officially have a full squad of nice shiny marines,and my nids will have some creepy bio bomb backup.

2 Tyranid Spore Mine Clusters (Completed) x8 total plus Spawning Infestion. (My last 40mm Base )

Exploding Mine Cluster.


Acid & Poison Mine Cluster.


Also Working on my next Objectives Markers,Decided to Stick with this years,Overwelming Theme Of Necromunda and/or Shadow War Variant,
Made x12 Industrial Bases (Necromundian/Underhive Theme) WIP for the markers,Rereading Necromunda The Rules Been a decade since last read through,
Love literally love the way it works upgrades fuel buying stuff guns/ammo troops even whole structures,like my comms nexus,or toxic pools,
Will make a few sets of Ammo Supplies & Grenades.(Weapon Upgrades),Promethium Barrels/Cans/Caches.(Funds/Buying) Knifes.(Melee Upgrades) Water Bottles (Funds/Buying) All Parts Painted already,just need gluing & Positioning Appropriately.

Industrial Base Batch.x12


Apart from that,i'am thinking I will eventually have to slow down and actually post just once a month,not several times as is,while its good and all getting nice amounts of stuff built,
It does backfire into real life eventually unless some awkward compromise between hobby and existence can be made,suspecting that the latter will soon come upon me like flys to the dead,I have also
Made my Last purchase for quite some time! not willing to spend more,have enough to keep my hands and mind occupied for the duration of the year and some,Last stuff i bought,a
Balsa Wood Assortment (Mini Crates) easier to work with than popsicle sticks,Kromlec Time Some Imperial Highlanders with HMG/H-Bolter,Plus Ork Operator & Goliath Mine,a Technical some Oxide effect,extra black running low,
20 40mm Bases And a few Metal Human Skeletons.

Necromunda Supplies,Objective Markers (Completed) Rules/Effect Listed next to the Items in Question.
Ammo (Reload/Credits) Flamer Fuel (Reload/Credits) Autocannon Ammo (Reload/Credits) Water Stash (Credits)
Smoke Grenades (Concealment) Table of Knifes (Melee Upgrade) Table of Grenades (Explosives) Promethium Cache (100credits per 3barrels,25 for x3 fuelcans) 3=One Cache.



The Markers on Tables are Meant to be Purchases off of a Trading Post,And or Upgrades Fought over during Games.
Water is worth 25credits As is the Flamer Fuel if Captured and Sold that or 4 Shots for a Flamer ammo rolls required as usual,
Similar for the Bolter & Autocannon Reload but worth less in trade 15credits,the knifes melee upgrade costs 5cred each member equipped,
alternatively if captured in a raid a one of x3 members picked and re-equipped,grenades coat 1cred each max of 6 per member,ammo rolls must be taken just in case the grenade used is a dud,
The cache of promethium is either won in battles fought over or captured during a game,providing credits for each acquired.

Already Working on my next bunch of Necromunda Markers Inspired by my re discovery of the game,
HQ's Watering Hole providing credit revenue and fought over can also be destroyed,with drinkys sorted food is the next obvious thing,
so a Mushroom Farm Crop is already partially completed,also more supplies likely some Krak Grenades,more Smokes,maybe some guns too.

Also something a bit different non 40k related a Cromwell Mk IV Tank (Airfix) was an interesting build,still deciding on the paint scheme though,and busy with other stuff anyway.



Upgraded my Bit's Box,Them little compartments are handy,and yes i paint all my bits,well most.

Looks good. Are the details interchangeable, like the other objectives?

Thanks,And Not this time glued them in place,still have all the bits for the 60mm archeotech marker though built extra tables for the 25mm one's.
Prefer making them permanent,got over 100 individual markers already,and unsure how many more i will make,but the odds are good will be alot more.

Painted up a random Ultramarine Biker,along with more Objective Markers,next going to have a good go at finishing of the other half of my marine squad,
then move onto some bits and maybe my last munitorum armored container,My previous order has arrived,Kromlech Stuff,a WW1 Style HMG With Scotsman Imperial Guard,A Ork Operator And WW1 Style RC Goliath Mine,both are seriously detailed almost FW level quality,
as well as a few soft metal human skeletons along with 20 40mm Bases which are Not GW Grade or type there a bit weird tbh and about 3mm lower,but whatever they will do fine for objective markers and stuff,and a assorted selection of balsa wood to play around with.
