Que spooky music.

Contest entry finished: Maugan Ra, Harvester of Souls, Phoenix Lord of the Dark Reaper Aspect Warriors, wielder of the Maugetar, savior of Craftworld Altansar. Spookiest of spooky this Spooktober. C&C welcome here or at my hobby log. I'm tired of painting bone and dealing with "Finecast" for a time.

Then comes along the frakking Spinosaurus who kills the T-rex, and the movie says "LOVE THIS NOW! HE IS BETTER" But...in your heart, you love the T-rex, who shouldn't have lost to no stupid Spinosaurus. So you hate the movie. And refuse to love the Spinosaurus because it is a hamfisted attempt at taking what you loved, making it TREX +++ and trying to sell you it.

Ok, it's good to know that I can change at anytime, 'cause after insisting my GS wouldn't be here until the 29th, it showed up yesterday.

So I'll be going back to Zarakynel/The Violet Heart.

Well, hopefully I can get some painting done today.

I've been out of the loop, dealing with a shady ex-employer who decided to fire me after I hurt my back on a jobsite. It's actually been a really gak week, but today I may be able to take some time for myself and break out the paint tin.

Loving all the entries. Really looking forward to seeing that She-Demon, maybe? I hope we get to see the She-Demon.

He's a legend even amongst the Kazak veterans. Wearing Ratnik Battle suit, the one and only Romsky "murder machine" Vadimov.

The model is just crazy. Amazingly sharp detals. I wanted something different this time. The model is full of scratches and dents, the subtle camo pattern.
Did some experiments with semi-non metalic metal. I painted him more like a tank, well he is actually.

Off to bed, later.

That's pretty sexy.

I really need to push myself out of my GW comfort bubble.

Is the 'She-Demon' my lady?

If so, She-Demon/Zarakynel/The Violet Heart has had her gaps filled (wahey!) and is primed. I have 108 hours to slap paint on her and I'm off all weekend and Tuesday, so She should get finished.

Y'all should be very aware though that I pledged here for motivation, not because I'm a good painter. They call me Captain Drybrush.

Yep, She-Demon is your girl Ex.

It's a very hard vote for me this month. There are several devils on my shoulder telling me who to vote for.

1: The not-so-bad one. Vote for the one you think has been done the "best" so far... Deathwatch Dude. He's really crisp and black can be a challenging colour to paint.

2: The fun party time guy. Vote for the one that is the most "awesome"... Grot Marines. They look fantastic and make me laugh. I want to see the idea expanded on.

3: Thaaaaat guy, you know who we mean, he'sapervcoughcough. Vote for She-Demon, maybe Slaanesh is real and I'll get some sweet payback later when I open a minor warp rift with a ritualistic mass suicide of the followers I've been gathering. By the way, I've been gathering followers.

4: The pragmatist. Vote for yourself, you may be the only one who does if you don't finish strong!

By the time I typed this joke I could have painted the base coat on the base. Shame.

Oh and I also have to add that I really like that battle suit. Particularly how the rucksack seems to add that nice contrast with the armour panels and the subframe.

Wow Evil, well painted and super creepy!

Here are the final photos for my far less well painted and also less creepy entry. A little better than last month, I hope, but I've got a long ways to go.

A grot in UM armour is just as disturbing as a SIlent Hill-esque Daemon Prnce/Ogre.

Ok I think I am finished too. At least for now. Maybe I can fix a thing or two.... but I probably won't.
I really like how he turned out. I was afraid he was gonna look all black but he looks colorfull enough and yet kinda dark.
Im not sure about the hourglass though.... thats why instead of gluing it I just pinned it there in case I change my mind. Im open to suggestions if anyone has a clue how to paint a hourglass cause I sure don't.

There have been several months when I've voted for everyone except myself. Unfortunately in practical terms all I'm really doing is giving myself -1 votes, so it's not that great an idea.

Bit of a last-minute entry from me this month, and I'm definitely phoning it in with this one, but at least it's not a DNF (I didn't enter 43 of these in a row to stop now! ). Been super-busy with uni this month and what free time I've had has largely been eaten by the new Assassin's Creed or running 2 D&D campaigns, but I managed to get a mini done just in time.

It's possibly overdone on the grime front even by my standards, but I actually quite like how he's come out; if anyone has a license to be more dirty and messy than usually appropriate it's a Plague Marine. Definitely find the ETB Plague Marines overly busy sculpts though, not as much scope as I'd like for some fancier weathering/muck effects.


Any thoughts welcome!

Apologies for the late entry. Wasn't sure if I'd be able to get these done in time, since it's mid-term season at school and I've been rather pre-occupied.

The Warhound kit for Adeptus Titanicus was released this month, and I figure what's spookier than being flanked by a duo of these bad boys!

Some fantastic looking entries. Unfortunately I'm going to have to withdraw, I'm away for the holidays and mine is no where near finished. It's hardly even started. All the best in the voting

I'm limping towards the finish line, struggling with the flu to do any painting. I'm hoping I'll be able to finish off my mini tonight, and take photos tomorrow night. Then along comes Para with a very similar miniature to the one I'm painting, and a spectacular paintjob very much along similar lines to what I'm doing, but probably looking a fair bit better than my effort, and he describes it as "phoned in." Bah.

Sorry mate, I'd forgotten you were also doing a Plague Marine!

Honestly, I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with, if your usual product is anything to go by yours will have had far more thought put into it than mine did (which was basically 'what can I paint in a couple of hours that vaguely fits the theme' )! Yours is a much cooler sculpt/pose as well, it'll certainly make my generic bolter guy look boring by comparison!


Still a better part of a day left on the subject poll for next month:

Looking at the weather forecast, photos might be an issue for me, too.

Is it ok if I post some artificially-lit, kinda bad, photos before the deadline and then replace them on thursday morning with decent ones?

Usually there's a few hours' amnesty, extended if I know I'm waiting for a specific entry, so yeah, so long as your final pics are in by Thursday evening UK time it should be fine.
