@Apollinaire - Your Necromunda terrain is looking amazing! And you just keep churning out more! Kepp up the awesome work!

@Syro_ - I'm digging the tables and the books, especially the table with all of the bones! You are close to having a full set of custom made Warhammer Quest furniture, keep the updates coming!

@Z-Ray - Any progress beyond the blue basecoat? Im really eager to see how these look completed!

@Guildenstern - Hows the staute/shrine room coming? Any more progress you can share?

@Boundless08 - How are you doing on the giant hand project? Can't wait to see what that turns into!

We're getting closer to the final deadline guys. !0 days left, so adjust your pace accordingly!

@Fango - Unfortunately no, got stuck on the pre-heresy signage I wanted to do before weathering. After a couple of abortive attempts I've decided to move on with out it otherwise the project was going to get stuck in hobby limbo.

I did paint 10 Necron Warriors in a fit of frustration tho

Thanks Fango, it's hard to believe there's only 10 days left after the extra month extension. Where does the time go? I really need to find more hobby time.


A very little bit of progress. I oiled the two mostly wood pieces to see if I could improve the color and wood grain a bit, the popsicle stick is in there for comparison. I also made another small table, because both of the tables I made are much bigger than the original, so I made this smaller one, but mostly it's because I lack time management skills.

I'm hoping to finish this weekend Fango! I'm on call this week so will be house bound and the warden is visiting her creators, so will just be me, the cat and this insane amount of work I've given myself to finish this!

I'm hoping to keep slowly making progress this week, and then paint all weekend to try to finish. It's going to be a close call, especially since work always leaves me so exhausted.


I made this fire yesterday and forgot to photograph it and add it to my post. I made the fire from hot glue attached to little bits of wood.


The fire from different angles.



Except for paint, I consider the stretching rack now finished.

It's hard to tell in the picture, but I have been mass producing the spines of books for my book shelves. Hopefully they will look good.

I decided to keep pushing. Another 2 maybe 2.5 hours of working on building bookcases and preparing books:


The beginnings of the first


Starting the second, making the back of the first.


This is where I stopped for the night, showing a scale shot, and basically how they will have books (still needs shelves).

More work on the bookcases.


I made scrolls from strips of paper rolled up and tied with thin wire.


All the shelves are now in the bookcases. The bookcases are mostly done, except I'll be adding a small facade of wood on the left and right when all the contents are in place,


All of the contents that will be going in the bookcases. They need priming, painting, and gluing in place.

Quick early morning update:


I finally got back to working on the treasure chest that I'm completely sculpting from scratch, and also started on the cupboard. In the back I've started trying to make a fancy iron hinge.

Very little progress atm, down with nurgle pox, hopefully will get more done this weekend when feeling better.

I've got a good bit of work left to do =/

I decided to remake one of the old Mordheim cardboard buildings. The cardboard is starting to fall apart and wanted to recreate it in foamcore. This is the original building:



I took it apart and recreated it in foamcore:





Assembled and then with some extra details added:





Added textured paint and undercoated with a red/brown primer. The textured paint is a mixture of sand, paint, and glue which also protects the edges from the spray primer.





Drybrushed with a yellow ochre paint, then a khaki, and finally a cream color. Painted the stone parts a mid-tone gray and the wood a light brown. Painted the interior with Payne's gray and drybrushed with the same cream color.





Just need to add fire damage to the edges and it'll be done!

Recent progress:


I've been making the mini pieces that sit on the mantle of the fireplace, like in the original picture. Mini-treasure chest isn't done yet.


Almost done with the wood parts of the cupboard, except one side. This is the back.

Here's the front


And "upholstered" the chair

@Syro, your work always amazes me! Your detail is always great, that chair and wood detail are just stunning.

For me I'm afraid I won't make this after all. I've been knocking away at this all day and although I'm mostly finished I have some green stuff work to do and other bits so don't think I'll get this all primed and painted in time. I'm off to Berlin on Wednesday and have band practice Monday so I'll try my best to get this done tonight so I can paint tomorrow! The title of this was going to be "Groznaks Pimpin' Choppa Shoppe" where the main man Groznak gets into a little argument with a disgruntled customer but since this is a usual occurrence he is well prepared.

@Boundless: Thanks so much Boundless, that really means a lot to me! I've been pushing myself to improve during these contests and I've been proud of the results. I hope you and everyone else likes this latest piece, I'm very proud of it. I love the concept behind your piece, so funny. I like how well concealed that second grot is. I hope you'll have time to finish, and if not, I hope you'll post it to your blog for us to check out when you're done.

Some really great stuff going on here.

@Apollinaire: That's an amazingly dark and atomspheric necromunda piece.

@Syro: I'm loving the little details you are making.

@Boundless: This is becoming a really characterful piece I hope you have time to finish it. The giant hand is almost surreal.

Keep it up all!

@Fango: Hey Fango, I'm almost done and I want to check with you on how you would prefer I submit my final pictures for judging. Being that I made a bunch of small pieces rather than the typical single terrain/diorama piece, I'm not sure what to do about the final submission pictures. I have taken the front, top, sides, and back pictures of all my finished pieces grouped together by what they are, but that's 53 pictures. It will be 63 when I'm done. I don't know if I can, or if you would want me to try PMing all of those to you for judging. I'd be fine with posting them all to my P&M blog for you to check when judging, or you could look in my gallery. Maybe there's something else too, that would be better. What would you prefer?

@OneManNoodles: Thanks OMN!

@Camkierhi: Thanks Cam, everyone is doing a great job. Though I think it would be easier to believe you about getting your butt kicked this time if you hadn't won the LoER terrain comps more often than anyone else

A few progress shots below, I will also be posting some shots of finished pieces of Hero Quest furniture on my blog if anyone is interested (Only WIP pics are supposed to be on this thread I think).


The cupboard without any hardware on it yet, this is one of the two remaining pieces I need to finish.


The books, scrolls, and skull ready to be put into the bookcase. I love how the finished bookcases turned out.


The painted fireplace and most of the items that will adorn it.

Hey guys, I didn't get to finish mine in time and have 0 hobby time to complete it :( I don't want to rush it either as I'm enjoying it so will keep at it once I get back from holidays.

@Boundless, I'm sorry to hear that you wont have time to finish, but I'm glad you'll still be finishing when you have time. That piece is too fun and cool to abandon.

Progress on my last two pieces of Hero Quest furniture:

I glued on all the hinges today, and made the handles. I just need to wait for the greenstuff to dry. I'm having trouble deciding what color I want all the hardware on this to be. I haven't had any metal pieces be the original cast iron color.


This whole time I thought I would be making a writing desk for the last piece, but with some recent research it's actually an "alchemy bench". I had forgotten after all these years, and my set didn't come with the set of scales or bottles, which gave it most of its character. It doesn't look like much now, but I'm hoping this will look good when I'm done. I'm planning on filling the area with alchemy equipment inspired by Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, rather than the letters, ink well, quill pen, etc.

Walls are totally stalled, just can't get the next stage of painting to look right.

However, I had a backup project for just that reason.

Shadespire impassible terrain.



after all the careful work cutting exact hexes for the bases I realized that I'f I don't have clean hexes they will work better on the normal battle field too, which brings us to this...



...and at this point I realized if I'd made the 3 hex section from 1 and 2 hex sections I'd have been covered for all possible board layouts...but it was too late and I soldiered on anyway)

I've got them all painted up and just need to do the last details before I send pics to Fango.


@Syro_ looking good, so many small, incredibly detailed pieces.

@Z-Ray: Those three pieces of impassible terrain are looking good, but it's a real shame about stalling out on your walls. I was showing a few of my friends this thread and explaining how the contests work: that Fango is judge this time because he won the last contest, and you were judge of the last contest because you won the contest before that. This was right before we got to one of your recent pictures of your wall sections (the one with the riveted plates and several unpainted necromunda figures standing in front) Their immediate response was "I can see why he won one of the contests before". I agreed

I'm also relieved to say I'm on here because I just finished my last piece of furniture. I'm getting ready to send the pics into Fango.

@Syro_ Thanks, I was gutted that I couldn't get them finished in time but not as much as I would be if I rushed it.

as it is I still haven't had a game of NUcromunda since the release :( but I have played a bunch of games of Shadespire in that time, so these ruins will get more board time anyway.

@Z-Ray: That is so true! After what a great job you've done, and how much you put into it, it wouldn't be right to rush it at the end. Those walls deserve to reach their full potential. I'm glad you were able to get such a good looking entry in.

@Guildenstern: I'm glad you're feeling better, good luck finishing!

@Apollinaire: Congrats on getting your entry in. Like Z-Ray and I were talking about, these really nice projects don't deserve to rushed last minute. I hope you'll share that second board with us as you work on it. I like the light.

Really amazing work all round guys! Looks like were winding down to the final hours here....about 9PM PST as of this post, so 3 more hours to go!

That being said, I won't be checking for the photos until tomorrow morning, so as long as they are in there by then, you'll be golden!

Apologies for not being more active the last couple of weeks. I've been slammed with work from my second job...and I am currently taking a break from a case that is due tonight to post this.

I did start to lay out the lines for scoring/cutting on the platform for my tower project this last weekend, so I'll post an image here shortly...and if you all are interested in the future progress of it, I will start posting updates in my project blog linked in my signature (sadly left unupdated for some time).

I'll post again after the contest is over with links to the public voting thread, so everyone can get a good look at the final submissions.

@Syro_ feel free to submit your pieces as you mentioned, as see that a group shot may hide some of the intricate work you've done on that Hero Quest stuff. Though, please do submit a series of 'collection' shots (using angles as described in the contest rules) for us to post in the public voting thread.

Best of luck to everyone!
