Very late entry this month, going for a simple couple of doors. Will make them interesting though.

I hope you do manage to find the time to get something done, guys. Chris particularly, as the league table is neck-and-neck between the two of us.

If you want something super quick and fun to paint in a couple of hours, you could do worse than grabbing a Squig Herd box from Games Workshop and painting the squig that is eating his handler. It'd be a nice subversion of the theme.

omg I so wish I'd thought of that... not that anything would get to me inside of a month to paint it, even if I ordered on jan 1st....
The new goblin releases are really awesome, so much temptation

Anyway... I am entering with a heavy weapons team. I figure two idiots left out in the middle of nowhere with just a big gun for company counts as fellowship..?

This is my proof, and the entry is about 99% finished, I just need to find somewhere that is daylight to photograph and yet not hot enough to melt the bloody models.

Yea I'm not buying a kit just for this lol. I'm entering stuff I already have lying around so as to help clear OUT my backlog, not add to it!

Legit tho, I had a Batman Miniatures Joker and Harley Quinn lined up for this.

Won't be able to paint up more models than this.




These are the final pics I have chosen. Call the entry "Yu Jing squadron" I guess.

Halfway into applying the base colours and I realise I should have applied the sand to the base before spraying. Sad times.

If you wrap.some tape around them just above the boots you could probably spray any basing materials without affecting your current progress.

Actually, cling film might work better with less risk of pullingpaint off. Not like you need the nice clean edge of tape

What a great idea, felt! I don't have time to go and get anything new, though so I'm going to go with some old Chaos dwarfs that I have had for along time - I figure they are at least little!

Some great work up this month - lipsdapips, those marines look like the bloody box-art from GW! Awesome work.
As always, Vejut, your choice of models is super-cool and the paint is great. The rat-druid especially looks fantastic!
Nice light points, Wish - they really give your armour a great finish.
Great job on your Infinity guys, Powerelephant. Yellow is a bloody tough colour and you have done a top job.

Anyhoo, here is my proof photo....now to try and channel the Paradigm within...

My entry; first attempt at painting Skitarii. I realized not long into these two that you could spend a lifetime picking out details and improving on them. These are the start of my Skitarii Kill Team, and they are bound by the fellowship that only a cybernetic-enhanced gunner and spotter can know. Final pics:

ehh, nah, think I'm out for this month...I really need to work on getting a squig army up and running...my local store's starting up an AoS escalation league soon, and I need more stuff ready for the start of that...also I'm just really feelin' the squigs at the moment, whereas I'm kinda not, with the flash gitz...so no point in my trying to chore through them just to get them done for this...I'll get back to them when I'm in the mood again, probably after I'm burnt out on squigs

...it's good to be green!

@Chris: YOU CAN DO IT! Meaning you'd better because those Chaos Dwarves are going to look awesome in your style!

As for my own entry, these were painted very early in the month but between an exam and a week away from my camera, I've only just got the pics in at the last minute. What better fellowship than The Fellowship? A sendoff for these original LotR metals as the new plastics for these characters come out this month.


Any thoughts welcome, of course! Aragorn was a real pain to photograph, given the angle he's at.

Aragorn looks good and Gimli’s excellent, not sure about Legolas; his skin looks a bit pink, is the colour balance on your camera correct?

I think it's just a flaw in the paintwork to be honest.

Between the slightly blocky face on this sculpt (it was one of the earliest LotR minis, I believe, and one of the weakest sculpts in the original Fellowship) and an attempt to give him a slightly paler skin tone than the humans/hobbits it ended up looking a little pink and ruddy, I tried to fix it but there's not much more I can do without slathering more layers on and losing detail.

I've run into a bit of a frustrating problem. I've finished painting my entry, I could take the photos, but my PC has stopped working. I'm not sure how to transfer the photos from my camera to my phone, or how to upload them properly even if I managed to. I'm hoping I might be able to get the PC working again.

Phew, got the Death Rider Command Squad done just in time!
Here's the final pics:













Still learning my camera, so some of the are darker than the others.
Also wanted to take one with a darker background, which is closer to the tabletop we usually use.

Good job so far everyone!

@ felt, if you get really stuck your welcome to email them to me (via the phone) and I'll upload them onto Dakka as a back up plan

aaawww Zobo, just go with the Squigs lol

Nice work Gulgod, feels weird see you do a non-ork model (and conversation )

Great set of Ultramarines Lips and Wishwar, interesting to see the little differences between your styles on a similar paint scheme.

Good luck Chris and everyone pushing to get their entries in, hope you get them done

Thanks, MG. My wife has reminded me that we have an ancient, creaking laptop we might be able to use, and I'm trying a system restore. I think it might just be something to do with the graphics card drivers. I'd rather not use the laptop as it takes an hour to start up, and then keeps opening a help window while you're trying to do things!

Edit - By the way, some fantastic entries appearing. Quality stuff from Para and Lipsda as usual, and I love those Death Korps of Krieg.

Thanks Jadenim, there’s a kind of blue paint that’s kinda my secret weapon, and I mixed some of it with a violet ink wash before applying; glad someone noticed!
