The Painting Contract - December 2018

Recommended Posts

On 11/30/2018 at 3:18 PM, syph0n said:

Right, I've got to stop being a wimp and:

1. Paint my Black Dragon. Base and rider done. FINISHED 

Beyond that, I'd like to:

2. Finish bases and undercoat my side project Phoenix, Kharibdyss and Manticore. FINISHED 

3. Rebase some of the side project

4. Paint a Lord-Relictor for my son's army. 

5. Paint my Space Wolf Kill Team 

6. Build the Kill Team terrain

 

Dragon done! Will take some proper pics tomorrow, and try to get some army shots. Over 1000 points, and with the addition of a second hydra and dragon, it'll hit 2000 points.

I reaaaaally like that dragon with the dark blue and gold color scheme, and the wintery base goes super well with it! Nice job!

 

Finished my Slaughterpriest today, can you tell almost all of the highlights are drybrushed, I can...

Also first time doing "real" basing and not just sand/clump foliage with no paint! Go me!

edit: And thus my contract for December is finished in time for the holidays. /sighofrelief

Took some better photos of the dragon. I'll put more army pics on my own thread as not to clog this one up! IMG_20181216_112615086.jpg.04319c2ffa3ade23b225111bd61c0cdc.jpg

Still not amazing photos (DSLR broke 😭) but miles better than my rushed quick shot before bed photos!

I can't get a good pic, but as evidence these thralls just need a few bits done to bases and part of my pledge is done.

Nice & simple pledge for me this month, paint Garreks Reavers (they have been hanging around for ages).

Stretch paint a Blood Throne or build more models to paint because the Blood Throne is my last assembled model. 

Pledge Complete! Garrek’s Reavers ready to join the  Goretide!

Gonna do Ogors! 

Bought a firebelly and the Bragg the Gutsman and Golgfag Maneater models. Cost me £70!! But I'm building them now and definitely the best finecast I've had so far. Still though, so expensive. 

Might do some Ogor plastics too not sure yet.

I do not think I will reach the goal of 30 swordmasters, but the month isnt done yet. All that is left on this batch are the faces (which I have base coated and shaded), the gems and bases. The lone miniature has his face (minus pupils) finished. I am hoping everything on them but the bases is completed by tomorrow. 

I have been experimenting with the agrellan badland technical paint. Pretty interesting stuff. Not sure I have come up with a look/colour I like just yet. I did make the rookie mistake of fully gluing them to the bases. So they won't look as good as they could. 

I am awaiting the flying stand base in the mail to finish the phoenix. I have lost the one it came with. 

As this has been the first time attempting this challenge, I want to congratulate all of you fine painters for achieving your monthly goals. This has been more difficult to acconplish than I originally thought. Thankfully the plan for next month will be easy.

I am on to part 2 of my pledge - the soul render. First holiday painting and got the base coats down on him. Tonight I'll need to do some small touch ups as it was a bit of a wine fuelled painting session and then on to washes.

I've done some more on mine but I'll never finish it all now before 28th. Working on my Space Wolf Kill Team. It's not AoS so I won't post a load of it.

1 and a half done, 4 to go. Primaris only, don't care about competitive.

My target is to paint the last models I need for a fully painted 2000 points of darkling covens. So:

10 executioners 

10 black guard

Aaaand done- thanks to a bit of free time this week.

thought I’d throw in a few pictures of the rest of the army for context- part of my larger fire aelf army, these guys represent the legions of the fire aelf empire, spreading across the mortal realms and putting any settlements they find under their “protection” from the forces of chaos. 

Currently I use a unit of drakespawn and a sorceress painted in traditional dark elf colours to round out the army. I’m hoping soon to convert/paint another sorceress specifically for the army, and maybe a medusa if I can get hold of one. Maybe for a future pledge.

Think i am done for the year. Managed to get Durthu done in time for the Winter War Beast competition but the sword was a bit rushed. Happy with how it came together tho.

UPDATE: Pledge Complete!

First time I've done one of these to completion. (I only said I might do some plastic stuff!)

Finished my 2 Tyrants and my Firebelly. Such awesome models. My tremor has gotten pretty bad so I kinda just paint with washes now and I think it looks pretty good, in that I can live with how they look.

They will probably receive some touching up but for now the only other thing to do is to put some lahmian medium over the tattoos, which were done in micron pen. 

Got a box of Ogors to do, but just waiting on the Ironguts and Leadbelchers I got for cheap off eBay. Seems like Xmas is making them late. (Shipped on Monday 2nd class, still not here lol)

Thank you so much.

I do have some days when my hands are steadier but I'm really used to using the washes now. My colour palette can be kind of limited since I'm only using the GW washes and those are all I have, but I love how they come out looking much less flat than just doing that first base paint layer or whatever. On some surfaces they even come out looking almost highlighted since the wash settles in the deeper areas and less on the raised ones.

Dunno if anyone else could recommend some other good washes, so that I can take my wash painting even further haha

Going to try and put a dent in my greenskinz back log this month;

Paint zarbags gits

Finish 4 wolf riders

Paint Orc Chariot

Paint 20 boyz with double choperd

Paint 14 archers

Paint 10 spiderfang riders

 

Not 100% hit this month, I may have been a bit ambitious given the festive shenanigans going on.

I finished Zarbags Gits, the wolf riders, and the spider riders. I also painted 20 moonclan grots I picked up, and an Orc warboss on Wyvern from Mierce, so overall a good month.

I missed the boar chariot and 20 double chopper boys, didn’t get them done, shame on me for getting distracted by moonclan and wyverns!

Ive rethought the arrer boyz... they are truly useless in games! So as most of them carry choppers as well I think i’ll convert the bow arms into shield arms and bump up my other units.
