Welcome all to the 79th 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 Heavy Metal. We want your clanking plate armour, your armoured walkers, you tanks, your oversized hammers, your enormous metal minis from the days of yore! Anything that goes CLANG! is and immensely weighty, really! As always, the theme is open to interpretation, so I expect at least one of you to instead make a Black Sabbath tribute band out of Dwarves or somthing...

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 September and will end at midnight UK time on the 30th September. After this, I shall compile the finished entries into a new thread, and voting will run for 5 days.

Hmm, what do I have that needs painting for my Soulblight and fits the "Heavy Metal" theme...

Well, what's more metal than a vicious bloodsucker clad head to toe in plate armour, riding the rotting corpse of a dragon and bursting its way out of a graveyard?

In other words, my entry this month will be a Vampire Lord on Zombie Dragon. Proof to come tonight.

That's what I meant especially mith my monochrome-plus-red colour scheme and it literally bursting over some gates.

My undercaffinated brain just focused on the plate armor bit. My bad.

Now I really want to paint something for my undead army, just to mock up the pics as cover art. But all I have at the moment is some chainrasps, and they are not very metal.

Someone needs to paint up a mostly naked barbarian gal riding a pterodactyl thing.
Also a good month to break out the umlauts.

I'll paint these classic Sigmarines in Tactical Dreadnought Armour with Thunder Hammer/Storm Shield - will be going for a grimdark weathered look. Never painted SCE before but got both Dominion and the previous starter + ETB sets earlier this summer so I'm a bit excited, actually.



Any METAL listening tips for my painting sessions? I'm more of a Hardcore/Screamo person when it comes 'heavy' music, but I do like stuff like Mastodon, Baroness, Kylesa etc.

I'm in this month. But I have to ask if I can break the rules and add an extra model - because NOBLE Team isn't complete without Noble 6...



I'm unashamed to say that I love Halo: Reach. Whilst I'm a fan of all the Halos (Barring the oddity that was Halo 5's incohesive narrative), there was something about the gritty art style, impending doom and the relentless efforts of NOBLE that made it, IMO, a masterpiece of a game. Pretty much every shooter nowadays seems to lack the ability to craft a really compelling narrative in the way Reach (or Mass Effect) managed. Funny that they were of the same era.

So how better to fit the theme of heavy metal than 6 augmented demigods in MJOLNIR powered assault armour fighting to save humanities last spark of hope?

Best reason I've heard for bending the rules a little, go for it! And I fully agree, Reach is by far my favourite of the series amd definitely the best campaign. 4 maaaybe wins on multiplayer for me but not by much.

Looks like those are the files I've seen for Halo Ground Assault, did you scale them up to print at 28mm? I was printing some Halo stuff last week and nearly did those ones, but wasn't sure the detail would survive the upscaling.

@Para - Thanking you muchly!

Aye, Reach was all round superb. I know Halo 5 was slated for it's lack of Master Chief gameplay, but Reach (and ODST) had already proved that Halo is more than just Master Chief and can be just as compelling without him in it (although killing off MC would be a travesty ). And I agree - Halo 4 multiplayer was great. I'm probably an oddity in that I also liked Halo 5's gameplay - it was just poor narrative that let it down (inconsistent pacing and didn't develop Osiris as particularly interesting or relatable personalities - aside from Buck).

And yep, the prints are from the Halo Ground Command FB group (I've added a link to their work in the 3D printing sub-forum for anyone interested). I've actually scaled these up to 1:46 (Star Wars: Legion scale). Considering that they were sculpted as 15mm minis, the detail is holding up exceptionally well for circa 45mm. Hell, Jorge-052 is scaled at 53mm because he was canonically taller than the S-III's in NOBLE. I've got some plans to start 3D modelling/sculpting some Halo stuff myself, so perhaps there'll be some new S-III and S-IV stuff kicking around in the not too distant future Once I learn the ropes properly

I’ve got 4 metal WG myself that need paint one of these days. Really need to get a 5th for a full squad. Don’t think they would play well with the new plastic guys.



On the dino front, I guess we all need to up our game this month. If I forget, someone remind me to slap a metal umlaut on the HB marine’s .

Time to maybe get back into doing these challenges. My entry for the Heavy Metal month will be these three classic Angry Washing Machines:

The left and middle ones are normal Dreads and will be painted in the classic green of the Dark Angels. The one on the right is a Venerable Dreadnought and will therefore be painted in the bone white of the Deathwing. Yes, I'm a madman for priming it black and then painting it in such a light color, but it'll look okay in the end- just might take a few extra steps.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 9/25/20, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~16000 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~900 | Space Wolves: ~3800
Astra Militarum: ~800 | Officio Assassinorum: ~600 | Imperial Knights: ~1300 | Sisters of Battle: ~1900

Well, to be honest I'm not sure I'll get all three done, but I can if I actually concentrate on getting paint down and don't get distracted by other things.

I feel that! Between commissions, work and my girlfriend, I am stretched thin. Mostly though I'm distracted by shiny things. And painting tutorials on YouTube.

On another note, it's not even fully printed and I'm already beginning to regret my life choices lol
