Mine are done but I won’t get a chance to take/post photos until tonight. It’s still November here : )

Making good progress but could do with the extra day to finish up. Just need to highlight metallics and greys.

Enough calls for more time lets run with the extra day for starters. Barring more last minute requests, I’ll close this in the morning on the 2nd, my time.

If you want something more precise, I’m in Eastern time (New York) and usually do the competition updates over my morning coffee, so about 6:30-7:00 I know I hate time zone math.

Oof yeah thanks for the extra day, mostly finished with painting but bases need to be cleaned up and photos need to be taken, and it's late and those vampires are too darn fast to even get them into focus

A half-hearted effort from me, I'm afraid. Haven't painted anything that really fit the theme all month, so this afternoon I cranked out an ARC Trooper sporting a jetpack, which just about fits the bill. Very rough and ready paintjob, more of a proof of concept for any more Clones I may or may not do going forward.

My finished entry, I painted six minis but I'd be breaking the rules if I posted them so here are five Eldar flyers from Aeronautica Imperialis. They look better than how they play. As usual, big photos are spoilered for Nev to add to the voting thread. Great work from everyone so far!

Here are my Doomwheels.
I bought them off ebay and they are missing some pieces from the official kit. I'm working on some gs replacements, but it could be a minute. Also, I want to get some resin in the sewers. But, for all intents and purposes, they're done.

They look fantastic, Tyranid Horde - you've made me want to paint some now....if only I didn't already have a mountain of grey...

This is my entry for this month. The paint is all very quick, going for 'looks eye-catching at a glance as they speed past' kind of thing. I kinda wish I had a tiny bit more time to paint numbers on each model - I think it would have sold the concept better than just a chase scene.
That said, I had a lot of fun painting this. I think I enjoy the story as much as the painting these days.

Anyhow, pics.







See everyone next month!

I painted a Ravenwing biker for this month. Maybe not the best fit as they are usually doing the chasing/hunting rather than the other way round, but at least it is fast

With mere seconds to spare, I did get my Squighogs done and posted before the end of November! 'Course I'll have to do the six riders for December's comp...

This was my first time using decals, but I like them, so will be using more in the future.
Stitch, Teef, and Turbo are ready for the big Waaagh! Lots of good ork entries this month, 'Ere we go, 'Ere we go, 'Ere we go...
There are more pics in my gallery, with three models, it's hard to limit yourself to six pictures.

New comp is up! Open round, paint whatever makes your hearts sing.

I’m going to leave this one open for about 24 more hours. I’ll close it up with tomorrow’s coffee.

I preemptively added an extra day onto next month’s time, just so people don’t need to worry about being locked to the paint bench on New Year’s Eve. You can get the pictures and post them while hungover that Saturday.

I didn't think I'd manage to get anything entered this month, but the extension gave me just enough time to finish a very last-minute entry. Not my best work, but certainly some of my fastest. The colour scheme is based on the original box art, but it's really only an approximation.

Got back home, and since we had the extra time, took some proper pictures. I'd like to change these to my finals if I could, nevelon?

Absolutely. Half the reason for extra time is not to get that last layer of paint down, but to get some decent light for pictures.

Still some bonus time left people. Let’s get those last second entries!

Everyone in? I think it’s time to close it up here so we can focus on December. I’ll try to get the vote thread up tomorrow or over the weekend.

Great job everyone!
