Actually finished my pledge with time to spare! Tabletop+ quality (actually I don't think I can do any better (yet)). Better pics will come in my plog when I have painted some more stuff.

Great work everyone! Stuff is looking awesome!

From a few days ago but forgot to share- a rare (for me) conversion to round off my trio of sorceresses for my darklings.

 

painting is underway although I’ve botched the skin tone a little. I’ll be sure to share the end result when it’s done, hopefully at the weekend

She be done. Slow progress as I’ve bern painting much less recently (I blame red dead redemption 2). 

Doubt I’ll get the medusa finished in January so that will have to roll over to Feb I think. Bonus pic of Dain as some of the other few models I painted in January.

Horribly washed out photo but without any good lighting I had to turn the brightness way up. Anyway, PLEDGE ACHIEVED!

Now on to the stretch goals.

No bases and ****** lighting but whatever

Waaaayyyy Lads Lads Lads 

Love these models. Know they’re like vanilla or whatever but they’re superbly posed, their power and heft is palpable.

Its taken a lot of courage to stick with the monochrome approach as it can feel sort of empty or flat in isolation but with the numbers to show for it I feel as though it’s starting to pay off. 

My other big ambition when returning to the hobby was to find a style for myself and have my things be recognisably mine, if not necessarily all that pretty.  I'm not particularly neat with a brush as am Dyspraxic with impacts my co-ordination so realised my strengths would be better expressed through working out the things that I think are most dramatic or characteristic points of interest and focus on doing them well rather than try and make everything neat. I'm enjoying painting far more as a result I have to say.

This is how they look when not in the gross yellow light of my storage room, in the nice white light of my kitchen

Here are 5 more Brutes that I finished up.  I had basically already got the main colors on, just needed to do touch up, shade, and finish.  The only thing left on them is maybe a couple more details and then to do the eyes.

Following this, I can go ahead and get what would be my pledges for February ready, which the goal will be 5 more Brutes, 3 Gore-gruntas, a Megaboss on foot, and a Gargant.  If I can manage it, that will pretty much be all the models I have ready to paint up, so the next steps will be either digging out old models, getting more models, or putting together some more custom scenery.

A bit rushed but managed to get a medusa painted up this weekend.

Hi there didn’t really had the time to paint anything, which I thought.

sadly (or luckily) I got sick and without being able to do anything well I started picking my paitbrush up again after months, of tirersome schoolwork.

well now I’m at home trying to finish of my Tzaangor Enlightement, for the upcoming game in my local club.

so yeah even if I didn’t had any aim of finishing or painting this week, I guess you could say I am rather happy.

afterall I finished painting my tzaangors shaman and a full chaos spawn.

Rather than commit to one particular model or unit, I've got a few things that need painting or building:

  • Finish the detail on my Space Wolf team  - no, but I did build two more for the roster
  • Try some faster painting styles on a Tyranid Kill Team and/or Stormcast Eternals - yes, built and painted a  Tyranid Kill Team to tabletop, though as with the Space Wolves I'm ploughing through the detail
  • Finish 5 Drakespawn Knights - no, but I did sort all of my AoS armies into relevant boxes with removable metal trays. Magnets arrived this week.
  • Rebase some of my Mixed Order pirate list and/or finish modelling the Frostheart rider conversion - as above
  • Make a start on the 2nd dragon or 2nd hydra for Order Serpentis - no where near

My aim overall is to finish my Order Serpentis army by February. That's 1 army in a year since starting back up. I want a nice painted force if I can convince @Bento have a battle down at WHW and show me the ropes!

I got Malign Sorcery, the Daughters Battleforce and Morathi for Christmas. I don't want it to be this time next year before they see light of day!

 

See above^^. Failed miserably really. Back to work has killed my hobby time, meeting after work day, kids back to clubs....

I've been building, painting and playing towards Kill Team and have had a couple of games recently though. It's meant AoS has slipped down the list of hobby time, but I'm hopeful I can finish my two teams properly over the next week and then definitely dip back into AoS and my Order Serpentis army.

Desperately attempting to get my Skyfires for my stretch goal done before the deadline. Discs done, just the riders to polish off.

Joining in for the first time...

I will paint Garrek's Reavers!

I'd also like to do Karanak and 5 flesh hounds but they haven't arrived yet so we'll see!

Well, they still need a few details and are not up to the high standards set around here, but I got Garrek's Reavers and some angry woofers of Khorne about 90% done.

Really enjoyed painting the Reavers, trying out a couple of different skin tones.

Got more done than I thought I would and having committed to it for this thread kept me from getting distracted! Look forward to next month!

It’s another month gone by! How does everyone feel they did this month?

February is right around the corner and it’s a short month... so come join in on the shortest month of the year!

It’s better to get some paint on stuff than no paint on any!

Head on over to the february contract and put up your pledge!

Goals:

  1. Finish 20 chainrasp (90% done) - done
  2. Paint 40 skeletons - 60%
  3. Paint 5 direwolves - 60%
  4. Paint Arkhan - done
  5. Help 5yo paint some army men - done
  6. Help 9yo paint tanks - delayed

Stretch:

  1. Start painting Nagash - 50%
  2. Paint 2 Morghast - done

I made more progress in this month than in the past six, I think. I became impatient with Nagash and ended up prioritizing him and the Morghast over the skellies and wolves. They need some highlights and basing but are close to done. I also knocked out a Guardian of Souls.

Decided to go with Option 1 but may be a little slower because I am also working on a Deamon Prince & Skyla Angrimm 

I didn’t finish everything in my pledge but I have made good progress this month. Completed my first miniature of 2019 & I will be using him at a one day event next weekend.

Only got half my pledge done this month, this unit of Flagellant Ghouls.  Was a busy month and things got away from me. Honestly without the motivation of this this thread I would have not even gotten these done. So a big thank you to all those who contribute, it helps keep the hobby juices flowing.
