Welcome all to the 60th round of the Dakka Painting challenge. For those who haven't seen the challenge before, it is a community-focused friendly competition open to anyone on the site, regardless of your skill level or experience. Every round contributes towards a League table, which ultimately means nothing but is a lot of fun to keep an eye on and jockey for position with Dakka's other painters. This is the final month of the 2019/20 rotation, and the league table is still tight, so this is your last chance to pull out all the stops and score some vital last minute points!

This month, the theme is “Final Boss.” Whether a Big Bad Evil Guy or whatever the Good Guy equivalent of that is, your entry should represent the biggest, toughest combatants your collection can muster, likely to be the last foe to face before they are defeated.



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 6 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 5 images and one separate image would count as your 6 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. The overall winner of the League for this year will receive a set of Dakka Dice.


How Long Do I Have?
This challenge begins 1st of February and will end at midnight UK time on the 29th of February. After this, I shall compile the finished entries into a new thread, and voting will run for 5 days.

This is going to be an amazing round... I dig all of these selections. Nevelon, I had one of those when my collection was rattling around in a K-Mart tackle box!

Here's the new Boss: The Canoness from the Sororitas Army Box. Note the "just got errata'd into legality today" plasma pistol. I'm thinking she needs a head swap, rod-for-gun swap, and a mean old chainsword in place of the power sword. Maybe do something about those dangly censers, too. If you've played or played against a Bloody Rose Canoness with the relic chainsword Beneficence you know she's a 45-point blender, so I definitely need to stop proxying her and get on with building these new plastics!



Also, which outrageously-oversized grimdark chainsword gets to be Beneficence? Sororitas-sized, Militarum-sized, Astartes-sized, or which-model-even-had-a-massive-chainsword-that-says-REPENT-sized?

So I am having to do a deep dive to figure out a final boss.

As of now I have settled on an Escher Gang Leader on some Necromunda terrain.




Cheers,

I have definitely picked a big project for this one but I am pretty excited to try and complete this one as I have been wanting to paint it for a while!
I was stuck between the Avatar of Kane or The Balrog decided on the latter with a whip I found from an older model - fully Metal model - Half primed

The one and only Final Boss is my Warboss - The Iron Boss from ArtelW Miniatures.

I am so looking forward to paint him. My plan is to learn more about painting true metalics and washing with oil paints.

That guy is tending to the spiritual well-being of my Ultras, as he’s done for many years now. Probably one of my favorite sculpts ever.

How you you turn down the one that says “repent”? My only concern is that if you are going to keep the pose, you either need to get one the right length, or add to the base. Either raise her up, or find a rock/heretic for her to be resting the blade on. Depending if it’s too short/long.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

I will once again attempt to join one of these challenges to motivate me to get some painting done. I will be attempting to paint Lelith Hesperax, but I haven't been able to get a start on her yet due to the very damp weather. I've only just started building my Wych Cult army, and I'm still kind of deciding on a colour scheme. At the moment I'm set on a sort of retro style with glossy black, purple and green.
Anyway, here's my proof, in all of it's finecast glory (actually my first finecast model, I can see why finecast isn't popular)

Image is sideways again, I'll see what I can do for next time
