Tale of Gamers: Month 2 COMPLETE!

Sign in to follow this  


So month 2 comes to a close, and we've had our first casualty! Jon has dropped out, realising he would not be able to complete the second month in a row, and having lost all motivation (despite our group bullying motivating him senseless) he has invoked the £50 buy out clause in order to avoid all further fines. He has assured us he will try and get SOME painting done, but we will have to see!

Gordrakk, Fist of Gork

So here he is! Finished, based, completed. No fine for me this month! Apologies for the photography, I am terrible at it.

I am really happy with how he turned out. I'm certainly not the best painter, and this guy certainly came with his challenges. The base for me is the real game changer here. My old basing scheme was very flat and boring, and was done with the painted model already glued to the base, meaning I was limited to what I could do without messing up my model. Having the base and model done separately gave me more options with the base, and I could add the rocks and have it a little more interesting.

I had exactly the same issues with Troll Slayer orange on Gordrakk as I did on the Maw-Krusha, so future models will not feature it as it's just a pain to use! I really like how the black on his shoulders turned out, as it was a way of painting black I hadnt used before, but I will continue to use it on the rest of the army as the challenge moves forwards.

As promised in my last post, here is a list of all the paints used to paint this model, in case you like certain parts of the scheme and want to try them yourself. All colours are GW colours.

Gordrakk, Fist of Gork

Rocks - Karak Stone, Screaming Skull, White Scar

So there we have it, month 2 finished, 700 points of beast, which means I'm not behind in the overall challenge from doing nothing in month 1! 

Next months commitment is 5 Brutes and a Weirdnob Shaman, giving me 1000pts of painted Ironjawz by the end of September!

Thanks for reading :)

There's some great progress here in just a month.  The Maw Krusha looks great, the orange armour is weird and kinda metallic looking, very unique! 

Also, if you haven't already you should totally join in with us doing the Tales of Sigmar's - Tale of Gamers as it seems your months line up perfectly as we've also just started month 3, if you get your gaming group buddies to join in as well they might find having an active blog associated with a project really helps keep the motivation up.  Also chance to win a Battletomb.
