Not going to get time to finish my apothecary but the cheerleader is done.

@Para, you've not included my cheerleader proof in the OP, only the proof of the model I'm not going to finish! It's back on page one, but for convenience...

Spoiler:


Here are the finished pics. Sorry they're so grainy! Should get better when the missus buys a new camera

Happy New Year to everyone!

Some really great entries as always- that dragon is just plain amazing, Modock!

I managed to push through this month and get something finished, though the photos are pretty flat. Bit of a struggle this month but I think this makes 12 months in a row, so I didn't want to miss an entry! Probably shouldn't have tried NMM with such a short amount of time!

Anyhow, here are the Guardians of the Shrine of Asur.

Now i get why this month is "Open Round".Too little time for miniatures in December. I do see some really good miniatures though.
Unfortunately I couldn't finish both miniatures so the centaur will have to go to war without his purple elf lady.
So anyway here is the Centaur. And happy new year to everyone!

That's amazing.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Here are my finished pics for the month. I painted the world's angriest Christmas Tree, Drycha Hamadreth. This model, in an unpainted state, has single-handedly (single branchedly?) decimate n1ceguypaul's forces on more than one occasion, so I knew I needed to do a good job. If a model kicks arse on the tabletop, it needs to look the part. My favorite parts of the paintjob are the colourful iridescent insect wings and, oddly, the brambles coming out of her crotch. The wings because I ummed and ahhed about how to do them for days, and the crotch brambles... I don't know why I like the crotch brambles. I just do.













Happy New Year, everyone!

You're right, it was Peregrine who was complaining about my desire to have plasma.

@feltmonkey not too sure getting eaten by a mourngul and his undead buddies constitutes a decimating encounter. Think we will have to let nag ash and alarielle duke it out for the decider.

Cracking job on the chick with the crotch brambles. Loving the honeycomb effect it really brings out the loathing on her face. Can't wait to see all the entries up. Happy new year

Its late so I'm just going to post the finished pic and look at the posts I've missed tomorrow.

The last pic is me having a play with the LED lampposts they work but had a bit of a drama towards the end of the photos when the camera toppled over and knocked all the Models off! I couldn't get the Xmas tree to stand back up, the snow was absorbing the glue :(

Anyway enjoy and hope you all have a happy new year

Here's the rest of the blokes. I have to say I'm not super happy with the bendy plastic used in PP's Undercity models. They are mashed together in awkward poses - hot water doesn't always fix the bends - cleanup is impossible, so the paintjobs suffer accordingly.
