Welcome all to the 81th 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 favorite 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 "Catch Me If You Can”. Whether through enhanced mobility, technology or just sheer speed, some combatants are just hard to pin down. Your entry should feature models capable of moving in a fast or unpredictable manner that gives them the upper hand in combat.

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

That is certainly a smashing captain!

After Stargraving myself into submission over October, time to sweep past Necromunda again for an addition to my Van Saar gang.

Jetbike, counts as grav-cutter hoverboard stupid thingy:



I have printed a few of these things as my understanding of printing stuffs has increased, with wildly varying results! I'll paint several of them, and have some covered in tarpaulins, or terribly mauled as casualty models



(i really had no idea what I was doing on the rightmost pair...)

Entertainingly, if you print it as one piece there is no way to fit the riders legs over the saddle *smh*

Thankfully, the set comes with split left/right legs. I guess I'll heath robinson a van Saar torso on ther or something.

For millennia, the Inquisition has attempted to detain the entity known only as "Space Santa." Thus far, he has eluded capture. He is a known trafficker in contraband goods. He is somehow able to travel great distances in no time at all; he has been spotted, minutes apart, in different segmenta altogether. He is suspected of being an alien, described by some as "a right jolly old eldar." He is able to infiltrate buildings by entering through alchomite stacks and magmavents. How he survives this process is unknown.

I thought you were just making fun, but that slotta base really does have "space santa" cast into it, doesn't it?

I'm in for this month too. We'll see how far I get since I'm not a fast painter, and for me this counts as a pretty massive project:

Might try to get some stormboyz done, going to be a busy month like the last few have so not sure if I'll get them all done or not. Going to go the lazy route and do them in contrast paints, considering trying to mix up my color scheme (yellow and pink) to throw in some reds. Also considering switching from just using straight contrast green for skin, to doing an orruk flesh with contrast green w/ lamian medium.

Or I might try paint a couple from the other squad instead that have some slightly non-standard loadout.

Yes it does! That is a jolly good fun old model that most collectors like myself look upon with envy.

Yeah, it took me a couple of years of stalking eBay until I found one for what seemed like a reasonable price.

Sometimes I look through my collection and think to myself "I am King Nerd. No other collector can compare." Then Pariah Press proves me wrong...

I have a few options for this month, but can't seem to decide. If you all could answer the poll in my P&M blog, I'd really appreciate it.

Honestly, if we are counting the collections of people who actually worked in GWs production management for a long time, I doubt any of us can compare.

Okay, my entry is the newest addition to my collection; Garak Grigolson, blizter for the Chaos Allstars!



I just got him in the mail today

Blizters are fast, right? Also, "catch me if you can" can also refer to the rarity of the model itself.

That is the oldest of schools indeed! Good find.

So having been relying on my airbrush for base coating recently, just done a bunch of metallic base coating with a hairy brush. I had forgotten how dispiriting it is! Takes ages, metallics give a funny reflection making it harder to be sure you’ve covered everything, and it always looks like ass. Blerg!

Oh well it’s done now and hopefully the next steps will be more fun.

I’ve actually finished my rabbit so i thought maybe I’d add a couple of his mates.

I only just threw on the goblin green around the bases before I remembered to take a proof pic. Is that ok?

Thanks Nev. Apart from the weapons (that came from an old WFB plastic kit) they’re all greenstuff.

One model has a bit of basecoating on him, but that's all so it should be okay I hope?
