Nice work Jamie Shred, the model looks very good, the only thing that looks out of place is some of the highlights on the legs, I feel they would work better if not as sharp or blended in a bit more.

Rofl at the Dog Nipples comment (still wonderful painting DV8)

Lovely work Queen Anne, the red you have done is such a great colour, and the free hand on the cape looks just part of it

Well done Yorkright, nice colours and col model

Good entry Blooddragon1981, i like the simplicity of the limited palette

Nice WIP spetex, I like the tones to the Ork skin already

Life, the kids and work are really not giving me any breaks at the moment to get anything done on the hobby. Will see what I can do in the few days before Friday

Thanks for the feedback I think the trousers were somewhat doomed from the start due to colour choices. I wanted dark blue pants and black cloak so went for my usual eshin grey washed black on the cloak and dark reaper for the pants. In hindsight I don't really have the colours to push the dark reaper enough to contrast with the black and probably should have used blues instead of Grey's for the highlights.

Lots of cool stuff (finished and WIP) floating around. I'm nearly done, the chainsword needs hazard stripes and his guns need a little more color, the holstered ones are gonna get a wooden handle and the plasma a green metallic coat.

Everything looks amazing, y'all! I'll barely get my assassins done in time... I got distracted building scenic bases so they could all have some crumbling stonework behind them, even the classic ones. Nothing motivates like the deadline!

Looking great, Lord McCallister and DV8!

Finally got around to putting something up - January is always almost impossible to get anything painted for me!

Anyhow, not much time but I'm determined to enter every month!

Anyhow, I'm going to paint this Stormcast Sequitor with her 'stormsmite maul' and 'soul shield' (I had to look that up on the GW website!) The GW coloured plastic always seems a little dodgy to me but I like the sculpt...

Good luck everyone!

There is one last evening tmrw and we are done!

Another WIP

My plan is now more cleaning up and highlight the handtool + do some more work on his face. If I get some extra time I want to think and try something with all of the syringes, I want them to look more like there is liquid blood inside. Maybe a coat of gloss varnish. I dunno.




Guys your submissions are looking awesome, cant wait to see all of the final photos!

I think it needs some shades relative to what gravity would do to the vials. So the ones pointing straight up on its back need a darker section at the top and the one pointing down on the pistol would need darker sections towards the base of the vial. This will help sell that there is something inside then gloss varnish can help make it look like its housed in glass.

Looking good deadshot, and a nice improvement.

Got my adventurers done, with a quicky cell pic to celebrate and in case I don't get the dslr out in time:


Iffy on the center one's sword, but I think the skin on him came out nice at least.

Not getting an entry in this month, due to an inflamed eyelid my vision has been too blurry to paint for the last 4 weeks, And while it's just about starting to recover, too late.

And so, I hand over the 'most entries' title squarely to Nevelon. For 58 months we've both got something in every single time, but now I fall behind while he soldiers on!
Absolutely gutted I couldn't quite pull off a five year entry streak!

Damn, sorry to hear that Para, hope you get better soon...that's an incredible achievement you accomplished.
If you can paint in a day or two you could extend the challenge for few days I'm sure everybody would agree.
I'm for it 110%.

Para,

I’ll second Modock on this. If you need more time, take it. You have always been willing to push things out a bit for everyone else. We are more then willing to grant you the same. We can leave this one open for a little longer and start in on the next. We all know you only need 5 minutes to bang out a top level entry anyway.

Feel better, take what time you need. And cut yourself the same slack you would for everyone else!

Wow Paradigm! What a streak! I'm sorry to hear you haven't been able to be painting. Agreed with the above- if anyone deserves some leeway, it's you.

Here's mine this month





This is my first figure for my new infinity JSA force. I'm aiming to get a cool purple and gold color scheme going. Not quite happy with the gold yet, will have to keep working on the recipe, but nice to have a test mini done!

Whew! Barely made it... It'll be midnight in the UK before I get home from work in Colorado, so tonight was my deadline. I am in awe (again) at the caliber of everyone's entries... well done, all. My contribution won't measure up, but I took on some challenges and I'm pretty happy with the outcome. For the record, this entry represents a model I've owned unpainted for decades, a repaint of a shoddy paint job I did long ago, and a newer prize from a recent FLGS event, so that's a fun trifecta. Also, my first attempt at lenses, three different experimental color schemes (Corvus, Skavenblight, Dawnstone), and scenic bases so that everyone could have some crumbling masonry to stand next to. There's a few things I'd take another run at with more time (and some new brushes!), but I'm pretty content and ready to move on to the box 'o Sisters that awaits. Thanks for a fun challenge!
