Welcome all to the 77th round of the Dakka Painting challenge. For the unfamiliar, this is a friendly painting competition open to members of all skill levels and experience, whether your entry is your first or you thousand-and-first time painting miniatures. Each month, finished entries are collected into a thread where the community can vote on their favourite pieces, and those votes go towards an annual overall League that runs for 12 rounds, ending in February next year.



This month, the theme is Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself: Blades and bullets may tear the flesh, but the morale of the enemy is best broken by fear. Your entry should feature models who employ fear or terror as weapons, from grotesque abominations to shadowy agents sowing panic behind enemy lines.


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.


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

You have nothing to fear but fear itself.
And unspeakable hunger beasts from beyond the outer black that will devour you and all you hold dear in a gruesome frenzy of gluttony.
You can fear that as well.

Oh man I really don't have anything for this one. All I have right now is orks, so either a particularly scary warboss or...

Maybe my kans? Kommandos would work I guess but I don't have any right now. I could buy Ghazghkull I guess but my list isn't ready for him yet, as I'm only at 1000 points.

Right now I just have boyz, stormboyz, a chimera trukk, kans, and 2 warbosses.

Stormboyz or a warboss would probably work. Both are good for some pants-wetting terror for things on the other side of the fight.

Just slap some paint on the meanest, ugliest, scary thing you have.

I will likely do some old metal Delaque Gangers...the ones that hid in the shadows and jumped out to ambush the other gangs.

Delaques are off the table as they may still be in transit when this month comes to an end. So instead I will do some Pit Slaves and Spryers to provide Necromunda Nightmares.




Cheers,

CB

I'll paint up these Crimson Devils to use as baddies in Five Parsecs From Home or similar. I'll only enter five in the competition, but if I'm doing five, I figure I may as well do the last one at the same time.

Now showing Enforcers for Deadzone!

Painting Total as of 9/21/2021: 74 plus an iron golem and five spider nests and all the obstacles for Dreadball Xtreme and four trapdoors and a cauldron and some teleport disks and three SF buildings and some resin barricades!

Painting Total as of 12/26/2020: 185 plus two mechs and the Throne of Bone

Haha, sorry, I was joking about how warsuits are *technically* 240 points apiece right now RAW.

Still, that's a lot of sisters.

WIP shot of the Exocrine/Haruspex. Body needs touch ups, heads just got their Grey Seer base.

Not to sound like a GW salesmonkey, but if you’ve ever wanted to collect ‘Nids, but the thought of painting that many bugs is what held you back, contrast paints are what you need. Won’t help with cleaning the mold lines on everything, but paint goes FAST. I’m having a seriously fun time just rolling these bugs across the paint bench.

I don't even use contrast but a GSC patriarch that I painted a while ago is like one of my best-looking minis and still the one that seemed the easiest to paint - I guess it's the overall Tyranid design with lots of large surfaces that aren't just bland, nice sharp edges for highlights, recesses for shading etc etc. ... but without having to take care if this or that part is from a different material, it's all just carapace in the end. It's like they were bioengineered to make mini painting techniques just 'click'

Anyway, here's my proof! Everyone likes spiders, right? Right?


Umm yeah I've been using its base to brush off excess basing texture paint, parts of this thing have been sitting on my table for quite a while now :p

While not quite as simple in design, I have a ton of boyz to paint, and contrast paints are really helping me blow through them. They have a lot of yellow on them, so a single coat of it instead of the 3+ typically required is a godsend.

This seems appropriate: "Fiday (“they who are willing to sacrifice”) are the angels of destruction, the most fearsome among the Hassassin. A Fiday is not a mere assassin, but an executioner: she acts in public and sends a public message. A man is killed, thousands are terrorized and, if the Fiday is apprehended, she will die a courageous death."

I'll throw my hat in the ring - a Messerschmitt Bf-109/F-4 (Trop). I think it's an indisputed fact that the Nazi Regime revelled in using fear and terror as weapons - and the Luftwaffe were widely complicit in all of the crimes of the Nazi Regime.

Anyway, that grim (but highly important) point aside - this model is destined for another themed diorama, so I may be adding to the entry with some considerable 'extras' if I get the time, and funds, to scrape this together. I'll also be doing a stage-by-stage build in my blog (Along with a Ju-88) if anyone is remotely interested in getting to grips with historic modelling/painting styles

Good choice for this month Warpig, might tempt me to dig out the 109 I have planned to paint in Condor Legion markings for this month.

Exocrine is looking great Nev, loved that Tyrant from a few months ago so high expectations!
