The Painting Contract - June 2018

Recommended Posts

Hello folks and welcome to the Painting Contract for June 2018!

If you don't know the rules they are:

Each month you post an amount of models that you agree to try to paint/build/convert/sculpt. This can be terrain, models, Warhammer Quest Silver Tower/ Shadows Over Hammerhal, Blood Bowl or Shadespire as well as AoS. 

On the 28th of the month the contract closes and you can then post your progress images so that they can be critiqued, shared and boasted about. It is a great way to get involved in the community and to get inspiration.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone share their progress!

Enjoy!

I’ll kick this off with a Bloodsecrator and Khorgorath to follow-on for Magore’s Fiends from last month.

Prime a unit of Blood Reavers and at least a couple Khorne heroes.

The rest of the month will be focused on getting a “Metal Chaos ‘Daemon’ thing” (that may or may not be a Imperial Knight ;) ) painted.

So it’s going to be a “light” month for me on the AoS side.

I am continuing to push through my backlog. This month I will pledge to paint:

Gorechosen - priest, aspiring deathbringer and exalted deathbringer

Gaunt summoner

Lord Kroak with my son

A Saurus knight

Get all models based that need it

Sttetch goals will be:

Build blood thirster 

Finish building skinks with my son

 

Feels like a sensible amount for my speed of painting.

As good a time for a first attempt as any, right?

 

20 Highborn Archers and 10 Highborn Spearmen. Their souls may have been devoured en mass, their old gods may have perished and their new gods may have turned their backs but by the realms they will go into battle painted!

 

Spoiler

Current progress on the archers. Some base coating done (Long way to go yet).

As I keep changing my pledge I'm going to try something different. I have a box of half painted stuff (which I all love and want to finish) so until I leave on holiday the 18th I'm going to do 5x 30min every week minimum. And seeing how far i'm going to get. So in the box:
- cauldron of blood 
 Medusa
 Avatar of Khaine
5 witches

- 5 witches
- 2 old skool spawn of chaos
 Steelheart warband

Gonna try to do:

- Great Unclean One

- Spoilpox Scrivener

- 20-60 Plaguebearers

All done with washes. Might need to buy more athonian camoshade.

Since I actually managed to complete it last month, I'll keep it nicer and conservative again:

3 Plague Drones.

This is "back on the wagon" month for me after getting almost nothing done in August and May. I really need to get a grip on my painting and stop procrastinating with such trivial things as housework, family and employment.

So in order of priority:

  • A hexwraith 'test mini' for the new Nighthaunt 
  • The starter set Stormcast (bar five liberators I'm saving for a conversion project.)
  • Knight Questor
  • 15 Swordmasters
  • Spoilpox Scrivener

As a stretch goal I'd really like to build (but almost certainly not paint) the following:

  • 3 Bloodthirsters
  • 5 Chaos Lords (Kitbashed from Varanguard)

My May pledge turned out to be a miserable failure, because I got distracted by Necrons and Idoneth. So this month:

- finish Doomwheel

- finish ratty Harbinger

- have a crack at my Skryre Acolytes

- Akhelian King

- eels for days

Spend a night watching the twitch game and painting (liked this format better with two commentators instead of the players commentating, kudos to see it improves) I think I’m calling these done! I will do a quick check Friday in better light, but it would mean a quick

First time pledge here as well:

Start Collecting Box Ironjawz

At the very least want to finish all 10 ardboys and the warchanter

Unsure one the gore-gruntas, found them really difficult up-to this point, but think I've gotten over a big hurdle with the fur done.

Lot of upheaval for me at the moment, but I'll aim for: 

3 x Palladors

Stretch:

1 x Lord Celestant

1 x Knight Heraldor

This will complete my Stormcast army in time for AoS 2... I also may need to move house, so...

My one lone pledge months ago fell flat due to over reaching. So i’m going for 10 Namarti Thralls and a stretch of 2 allopexes.

For June:

Finish current Stormcast backlog (3 Prosecutors, Knight-Heraldor, Knight-Vexillor, 4 Liberators and 3 Palladors).

Stretch:

Resist getting the new AoS 2.0 starter box until _all_ previously purchased ScE are painted.

[... lots of Nurgle...]

Maybe not doomed ... but the rot and corruption may become a way of life ... ;) (for at least the next month ... or more)

The grandfather has a place for all in his garden ... 

I’m looking forward to seeing your progress through the month. So, don’t forget to post up WiP pictures as you get stuff built and painted. It sounds like a good way to get going! (‘Jumping in headfirst with both feet’ as I’ve heard it said before.)

Here’s a pretty solid version for using washes

http://sonofdorn.blogspot.com/2013/02/tutorial-wash-painting-nurgle-demons.html?m=1

@Mengel Miniatures has an excellent tutorial for Plaguebearers on Warhammer Community

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/03/20/painting-plaguebearers-with-tyler-mengelgw-homepage-post-3/

if you want a purple skin, there was a nice Warhammer.tv version on that:

And Duncan did a really nice video on diseased Nurgle skin on Warhammer.tv

Gonna try to stay conservative with just finishing Skarbrand and my first unit of 20 letters.

Well last month was not a failure as such. Managed to finish my ghouls and 3 crypt horrors. Must post a pic. 

Failed on the terrorgheist but did build and start.

So I am going to keep it simple this month and for June finish the terrorgheist.

First time pledge

I'm going to try and get everything from my SkyFleet box basecoated, and Brokk Grungsson and the Frigate completely finished. 

For a given value of finished.
