Welcome all to the 87th 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.

This month, the theme is Mayhem: While some lose their heads in the carnage and chaos of battle, others revel in it, and in the mayhem they can wreak there. From wild berserkers to mad Orks, your entry should feature models who are capable of causing sheer, unbridled chaos and mayhem on the battlefield.


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 May and will end at midnight BST on 31st May. After this, I shall compile the finished entries into a new thread, and voting will run for 5 days.

Something bug-like.

Not sure if I’m just going to do some genestealers (there are 4 more on my desk being built that could join them for a do 10, pick 5 situation) or swap one out and do either a ‘Fex and friends, or another GSC with backup.

Or I might change my mind and do some Eldar rangers. I’ve not had my coffee yet, so can barely functions, let alone decide things.

I picked up Beastgrave -

"Whenever a new territory, a new opportunity for carnage and depravity, presents itself, the gor-kin are conjured into furious, panic inducing, stampeding ambushes.

The surrounded, outnumbered and disordered but defiant enemy are savaged and, like a carrion flock to a corpse, ultimately descended upon by the gor-kin who claim their disembodied heads as trophies.

These cruel and bloodthirsty animals gather fuel at primal, sacrificial rituals, anticipating the diabolical, blood crazed violation of their enemy for the sake of mayhem itself."

Here are the Beastmen team basecoated, i will submit the first 5 that get done c:

Here's my entry for Mayhem, a group of armed close combat knights. Sword Brethren.

However, I am open to amending this to be the models behind my sword brethren and get the Close Combat Centurions painted up from 2 years ago

Which one feels more like they'll ensure a chaotic result on the table?

Vejut, you have a lot of faith in my ability to speed paint. Unfortunately I tend to zoom way in on models (not that it improves my skill) but usually takes a while. But with your faith, I'll see if I can knock out both.

Had to think really hard for this one in the end. Ultimately I decided to paint something from Ankh: Gods of Egypt. Here is a proof pic of Set, god of chaos and war in Egyptian mythology:

This will really be something different from all the power armor and stuff I usually paint. My main goal is to get the god himself painted; if I have time I'll paint up his warriors as well (and choose the best four to enter with him in the final pics).

My armies (re-counted and updated on 4/26/22, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~18000 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~900 | Space Wolves: ~5000
Astra Militarum: ~800 | Adeptus Custodes: ~1100 | Imperial Knights: ~1300 | Sisters of Battle: ~4300

I've been meaning to give painting a 75mm model a try for a while, so this is my entry. Also, after painting Darth Vader last month I really want to paint something more colorful again.

I will enter Captain Tycho, from his utter hatred of the orks mayhem ensures his downfall.
I will get pictures after work.

I will be painting him when he was at his greatest.

The Kovoss Kryptics are weird, Frankenstein hybrids, perfect for causing mayhem on the Dreadball pitch. I'll be painting the whole team, and entering the best five in the challenge.

It's been a long time since I did one of these comps. I recently finished a modelling project converting eldar wraithlords into aspect wraithlords, so I thought I might as well try entering one as I'll be painting them for the next year, probably! Top pic is all the completed aspect wraithlords (from right to left: dark reaper, dire avenger, howling banshee, swooping hawk, fire dragon, striking scorpion), plus an extra two vanilla wraithlords, one modified one unmodified which I'll probably also paint to enter at some point in the future (if I haven't gone crazy by then!).

Since the comp theme is mayhem, I guess I'll go for the Howling Banshee wraithlord (2nd pic), which is appropriate as it was the first one completed. I'm intending to paint all of them in a mixture of craftworld colours and traditional aspect colours, so to that end the banshee will be part banshee colours (bone and green, plus red hair) and part Iybraesil colours (deep blue + white). Hopefully I'll be able to balance all those colours okay... If not, I guess it'll be an 'interesting' look, if nothing else...

I might end up having to change my entry if the weather around here doesn't cooperate more. It's either wind or rain or both 24/7 lately, which makes spray priming impossible. I could always brush prime, but I tend to do that only on smaller models.

You should try MolotoW for primer if you're having trouble. I use it by brush and airbrush and as it's an ink, it doesn't build up easily or obscure detail.

The Ohmu might look cute and cuddly, but they can cause mayhem when roused to anger.

Yes it is, though I won't be modelling it impaled by bits of metal. Per the instructions, in order to attach the metal bits you have to drill holes in the ohmu's body to create "realistic damage" (!), and I don't have a large enough drill bit.

Didn't really feel the "Mayhem" from my Space Marines, so I'll be going for something very different this month.

I found a box with a couple old Beastmen, and this one basically screamed "Mayhem" at me:





An old metal Centigor, might even be Ghorros Warhoof himself (?).
