Thanks everyone...errr where did July go???

I had to replace my phone after the idiot owner dropped it in a full bath so lost all of July's pictures. So here is the tale of the tape before I retake some pictures:

July: 36 Miniatures painted taking me to 211 miniatures painted in 210 days this year.

You saw Horus but I also did:

10 SoH Veterans
5 SoH Volkite marines
5 SoH Rotor Cannon marines
5 Justaerin Terminators
5 Catherphractii with Lightning Claws
1 Melee Contemptor
1 Spartan
1 Deimos Rhino
1 Praetor
1 Celestial Lion Kratos


So I have pictures of the Melee Contemptor:







So onto my August Progress.

First up I had to buy the new plastic Leviathan. Really fun model to build and paint.







And a not quite legal Dreadnought Talon:



Which meant i had to do one for my Lions:







After all of the Marines I needed a palette cleanser so went for a Tech priest Engineseer from Imperium Magazine on an AOS hero base made a bit more futuristic...and i had not painted purple in a while:









Finally I painted up my first Necromunda gang in probably 25 years...ouch...Purple is Luxion purple contrast over leadbelcher with runefang steel highlights:









Thanks for looking

That purple looks excellent on both the techpriest and the Squats, looking forward to seeing the Exosuit!

Leviathans look fantastic. Squats are a hoot. Great work, as always.

Thank you everyone, the Squats are indeed fun. To that end I ordered the Vartijan Exo Driller. I left the backpack off as I love the porthole type thing round the back:







I also painted the only Emperor's children marine you could ever like, the hero of Istvaan III Saul Tarvitz. I moved him onto a 40mm base to add a bit more heft to him:






My ever expanding Dread collection increases with a couple of SonsOf Horus Dreanoughts. First up is the Forge world legion specific Contemptor tricked out with 2 plastic melta cannons. Truth be told the cast was a bit rough but I soldiered on:





Which means i now have a full Dreadnought Talon:#



Finally is the recently released ranged leviathan, armed with Storm Cannon and Grav Flux Bombard:











Thanks for looking.

Wow! Sweet updates! Looks like I missed your earlier one, hopefully you can find time to retake the July progress as Terminators are always cool. The purple palette cleansers are super cool, the shininess of the squats is superb. I’m also jealous of all of the Dreadnought action too.

The dreads are fantastic as always, as is Tarvitz. Really like your purple schemes. The exo-suit is such a cool kit. I have to get one for the Byker Hill Lads

Cheers everyone, bit of a quieter month in August with only 24 miniatures completed. Still that takes me to 235 painted for the year so far so I cannot complain.

It was mainly a Dreadnought and purple month:







As you can see I added another 3 Contemptors to the army, double Plasma cannon, double volkite and double Kheres versions:













That is 6 in the army now:



So onto a bit of early September progress. First up is the Warhammer+ subscription miniature Operative Umbral 6 a Vindicare Assassin. Great fun little model to paint, I added it to a 40mm base rather than the dinky 32mm it is supplied with.







Finally is an AOS addition to my Soulblight army in the form of Cado Ezechiar, The Hollow King from Black Library:









Thanks for looking.

Moar Dakka! That’s a serious volume of Dreads

That's a lot of Dreads!

Great work on the vampire too! Love the amount of shine you've given his cape.

Just looking back over your Cursed City stuff to pick up some inspiration for my pwn set, but had to leave a comment on that last Vampire first! Absolutely stunning sculpt, killer paintjob and that face is so expressive!

Thank you everyone, and extra great to see some old faces in here in the form of Paradigm and AzazelX.

So we are mid way through October, so had better get caught up with September's progress...poor picture ahoy!



That is 36 miniatures completed for 271 for the year up to the end of September.

So to start is my SoH vehicle progress.

First up is a dual Grav Flux Bombard Leviathan:



That completes the Talon of 3 now:



I also did a dual Chainfist Contemptor:



And here he is with all my other Dreads (NB I have already done another Contemptor for October)



I also did a Rhino and flamer support squad as well as a plasma support squad and half a 10 man tactical squad (the latter 2 not pictured here):



Finally for my SoH I painted up a Sicaran:





I also added to my small Emperor's Children force with a few minis, first up are a couple of Praetors





And a Forge World EC Contemptor:





I also did a 5 man Autocannon squad (not pictured) and this 5 man Tartaros Squad:



That leaves just a couple of minis to show off, first up is a humble Sigmarine that was basically a possible test scheme for some Leagues of Votann:



Finally is one of this years Warhammer + miniatures in the form of Azrakh The Annihilator, had great fun painting this one up:



As ever, thanks for looking.

You must have a good proportion of the SoH legion by now . I must admit I’m really enjoying your Emperors Children though, that purple is spot on. Azrakh is a sweet mini, he nearly tempted me to sign up to WH+

Brilliant progress LTMW! The mighty pinky sigmar bloke is very intriguing. Looking forward to how that looks on Votann.
