Nice. I need to paint some of my crisis protocol stuff.

Here's black mask from the batman game by knight models. Absolutely stunning models but the resin is a little too soft for my liking.

Got a few days to finish my kruleboy banner bearer. Might get 3 models in this month.

Hit me with any theme ideas for the next round, poll will go up tomorrow.

Also, just noticed that for the past 26 days this has been the 'Dakia' painting challenge , how did no one spot that typo in the title?

I just didn’t want to be critical. Definitely made my own share of typos . . .

I’ve been grinding on a horde of clanrats, so hadn’t started my entry until today, but did manage to get some work done.

Done. Bit of a rollercoaster - I think the very small details are outside of my current ability - but came back to acceptable at least.

Infinity Haqqislam "Hassassin Fiday" (with Boarding Shotgun).

"Fiday (“they who are willing to sacrifice”) are the angels of destruction, the most fearsome among the Hassassin. A Fiday is not a mere assassin, but an executioner: she acts in public and sends a public message. A man is killed, thousands are terrorized and, if the Fiday is apprehended, she will die a courageous death."

Good luck everyone!

Well, I pretty much forgot I had entered this Fortunately I'd got done mid-month, so there was just the pics to do. I didn't get round to the rest of the diorama this one is destined for, but apparently a guitar slide makes an excellent photography stand for wheels-up planes. Who knew?

Anyway, my entry for this month: 'Red-7' a Bf-109/F-4 (Trop) of 2 Staffel, Jagdgeschwader 27, December 1941.

I think the symbol on the tail pretty much sums up what's terrifying about this subject. There can be little doubt that the Bf-109 was a triumph of engineering, and the F model was widely lauded as an exceptional aircraft to fly. It also has a very appealling aesthetic - the hammer to the Spitfire's sword, so to speak. That said, I find that some scale modellers tend to focus a little too enthusiastically on glorifying Luftwaffe pilots without stopping to considering their affiliation or personal beliefs, so I chose this specific aircraft because it's pilot remains anonymous - no need to lavish praise on persons whose actions may not have been out of simple duty methinks.

That is really nice! The shading between panels and the various streaking effects really bring it to life!

How did it compare to the last plane that you did? (the desert one... Tomahawk was it?)

Thanks Flinty - much appreciated!

It was another bit of a learning curve with this one because I tried a new method of preshading. Essentially, the Tomahawk (well remembered btw ) used a technique where I shaded each panel line with black, over a grey base. But it doesn't quite look natural, and the lining is too uniform to fool the eye into thinking it's realistic. So I tried a new method I found online where you take a thinned out piece of pan-scourer/scotch-brite and spray grey through it, to dapple the black primer. The effect is to create a totally randomised pattern which mimics faded spots far more realistically, and avoids any uniformity. After that it was just a case of main colours and the usual weathering, but I think it's come out better than I expected! I'll certainly be using it on my next scale model.

I screwed up with the varnish. Dunno if I didn't shake it enough or sprayed from too close, but I got some really bad frosting.
Did what I could to save it (which made it a little glossy in some places...), but that was pretty rough.

Anyways here's my Ravenwing Primaris Chaplain on Bike:

Warpig1815: Love that Bf-109! The weathering really hits the spot.
Jamie Shred: Nice work on the Nemesis! Both of them actually.
QAR: Always like your style. Nice work.

Posting my proof and the finished pics at the same time. I was not sure if I was going to make it, so I did not dare to take part before.

So I present to you a Beholder.
Fits the theme due to the extreme paranoia that the thing has for it's own well being. Not that the thing itself is not scary or anything.

Some great stuff coming in, this is going to be an exciting race when the voting starts, I reckon.

After the failure of a few other projects and a complete lack of motivation for the last few days, I'm throwing in my take on Yndtrasta this month. Not as monstrous as some of the entries coming in, but to the foes of Sigmar this avenging angel must be a rather terrifying sight to behold!

I vacillated on what to enter for the first half of this month, painted this miniature in a day and then decided on a last-minute whim to attempt to base it in the Blackstone Fortress style. I think Harlequins use their masks to terrify their foes, but I might be confusing them with Howling Banshees. Anyway, here is an Eldar Harlequin being fearsome inside a Blackstone Fortress. The colour scheme is based on this miniature's illustration in the original Harlequins box art.
