The westie is soooo cute. Also those kroxigor models look huge! But really fun to paint though.

He is, isn't he? They did a great sculpt. Andnfor the krox, theres a lot of them to paint, but still fun. Quite large even compared to last ed though.

Ran through a satyr for paint night, just needs basing:



And some more ork escort progress:


Bouncing around, but still progress.

Thanks aku-chan! Actually finished the satyr with base:




And started in on some sentinels as color tests for a steel legion army for epic:armageddon. White primer, UK azure wash, and then some lighter blue mixed with white drybrush layers before detailing. Not going to win any painting contests, but decent enough to go on with.

Need to get some texture paste for these tomorrow to finish off basing.

He's a stern and rather imposing satyr, I like it.

Thanks amazing turtles!

Got some progress on the orks for gorkamorka, cleaning up some seam lines, may do a bit more this week when I'm off. Also will need to do some foot versions of them...

Also started basing the sentinels, though my initial plan of basing paste is foundring on the AK stuff being sold out:


And on a paint night report, threw some paint at the rather mold liney mantic figures:


But most of the night was near finishing my female basti harbinger ahead of historicon next week. Maybe some minor touchups and basing, plus a shield and some back decor, but most of the hard work done (spoiler for breasts):
Spoiler:


Excited for historicon, hobby also going good.

On vacation, so a little off routine, little late on the update. Started some tanks for the 6mm stuff:


Because I finished the sentinels:




Made some progress on the basti Harbinger, shield and cloak completed:

And the model herself largely finshed, except for minor details like attaching the shield and doing some javelins. Spoiler as usual for bare breast dress:
Spoiler:


And the usual pre-starting the next project, hopefully my challenge model for the month, drink machine and an Anubi embalmer:

Final few days to get things done before historicon.

Finished up the basti harbinger:
(Exposed breast spoiler)
Spoiler:





And then went to tuesday paint night. Made some.good progress on the anubi embalmer:



And then because I was about as far as I could get without basing supplies I didn't have on me, and somebody else at the table was interested, speed-painted a couple contemptors for epic:


Hopefully finish some final touches and base them too, either before I leave or when I get back.

I love the colours you've chosen for the embalmer, especially the little mottled blue bit in the middle of the staff. He looks really characterful!
   
Made in us
Utilizing Careful Highlighting





Thanks! Sadly, the little mottled bit is me not having the brush control to paint the triangles cleanly. Did get the basing done though:



Could do with a bit more yellow on the ground so the wraps show more, but I think its done enough.
Also just finished the dreadnoughts, had to fix the autocannon one after it got knocked over, but seems to have gone back OK.


And went to Historicon over the weekend, did a bunch of painting classes, one on painting and building rubbish and similar scatter, and another on starscapes:

Mostly just stipple over black/dark blue and then clears, and some brush flicking.
Also picked up and painted some one off metal eldar just for fun. Needs some basing, but kinda happy with the hawk, not sure how well I like the death jester:


Hopefully get them done, maybe make some progress on the tanks.

Fun experiment with the starscape. One of those things that looks cool, but I’ve always been too timid to try.

Like diamonds/motely paterns on harlies. Great work on the old lead.

I echo the sentiment on the starscape. A really cool effect for a wizard cloak.

Thanks nevelon, DJ jazzyjeff, it was actually pretty easy, ypu should try it! Actually planned to try it on an Archer for BT on paint night, but didn't get that far (and then forgot photos)

Got a bit busy in general actually, but did get this old kitbashed chaos space marine done, for my old khorne focused csm force, "The Caged" (going for the pun of course). Counts as Huron, IIRC.


Might be the last for July, but hoping to sneak out the tanks...

That's a wild kitbash, although there is one area that seems more Slaaneshi than Khornate...

Now showing Usagi Yojimbo models!

Painting total for 2023: 79 plus 28 Battlemechs and a Dragon-Balrog

Thanks JoshinJapan, I was kinda on a rat head kick for a while, and hey, khorne makes everything into a weapon...

Also, finished the mech from paint night, still a bit of wet glue since I was running out the door before it dried. Bit of experiments with nebulas and ink, and freehand nose art:

It's a neat effect! The stars on top work particularly well, I think.

What colors did you use on the Basti skin, Vejut? I find the scheme very pleasing for painting big cats.

Amazingturtles--i agree, the top worked better, I think the better formed and lighter stars is key there. Would probably have helped to remember the original method I was shown involved brush flicking, and to not do detail work before that...

Miguelsan, I really should write them down somewhere I'll look, and I think it changes a bit each time, but I think it was iraqi sand, highlight pale sand, a mid brown wash, and then pale sand and possibly ivory highlights?

Also, spent most of paint night on the 6mm russes, almost there:

And the russes are done, keep forgetting to post here:


And the next set started, with some rhinos for the salamanders as a break:


And some mechs and a gator lady for the challenge and my war gods armies:

Little at a time, but progress.

How big are your armies getting? You paint a huge variety of stuff for all sorts of systems, but I have no clue how it all stacks up. When was the last time you broke everything out for a group shot? Not all together (which would probably break the table) but by faction/system.

   
Made in us
Utilizing Careful Highlighting





To be honest, I don't either, though its mostly on display shelves. Not really tracking by system, though did break down the painted pile for last year that way. Can say the only finished project is the warGods basti, with the saga shieldmaidens probably at least usable, and the titanicus stuff big enough for most games but needing much more options done. Did inspire me to take shelf shots though:
Main burrows and badgers shelf:


Wargods (and some B&B overflow):


Misc SFF (plus some empire someone else painted and sold me):


Saga shieldmaidens locked in combat with Kievan rus, plus undead and overflow:


And then the warhammer shelves. IG, mostly:

Warmaster, bfg, epic salamanders, epic steel legion:


And the probably never to be painted now illegal chaos army:



Theres also the aforementioned titanicus, some half painted infinity, and some really old badly done lizards and empire in travel cases in other spots.

And trying to move some more stuff along, progress on salamander rhinos, starts on the second russ batch, and progress on the big lizard...

Missed paint night and distraction free time, but made some movement anyways.

Got the rhinos done over the weekend:



Made a little more progress on the big tank order:


And started some more basti to use as Ballista crew for that project, and maybe as this months challenge entry:


Gotta kinda hoof it, running out of month...

Been working a bit, but mostly forgetting to take pictures. Between paint night and normal nights, got the Basti near done:


And getting close on the second tank company, though I think this blue wash was a mistake, ended up blue not cold white, may try american or mirage grey when I do the accompaning artillery.


Also started another run of salamander rhinos and put more paint on shieldmaiden horses, but forgot pictures of those, hopefully this coming week.

Calling the basti done, though may do a little more on the stick, and needs better pictures:



And some more progress correcting the failed wash, four to go and then more wash and highlights:

Some pictures of the two actual crew with their engine:

One better group shot:


And some finished tanks:


Probably take a short salamanders or something random break, and then on to either superheavies or artillery in 6mm...

Started some Shadowswords in 6mm:


And did a bit of weapon swap and de-pedestaling of a GW deathmaster:


Kinda feeling like skirmish stuff, considering starting mixing up some stuff with frostgrave barbarians II and wargames atlantic spacenam and mantic project Z guns, we'll see where it goes. Not sure I want to match it to necromunda, but kinda looking for rules structure to build off.

A bit of paint night progress, ended up bouncing around a bit and not getting much done, but the base colors are mostly done on the shadowswords, and made a little progress on the rhinos:


Probably not getting done this month, but a nice way to kick off next month.
