Pretty much finished this guy. Ran out of ink in my micron pen for the tattoos RIP. Also pics aren't the best sorry

Let me know what you think:

My converted butcher with cauldron. He likes to kill big beasties as tribute to the Great Maw using his knives and his trusty hooks and chains.

After working really hard at it all weekend my pledge is actually done!  Now I can crack on with my Stretch and try and get the Warshirne done at least. I’ve already started work on a Herdstone a

Eels are progressing but by god it’s slow. 6 at once is a big task. They should be done over the next week and the riders started. To break it up I also painted Elucia Vhane from Rogue Trader - freaking lovely model. Will finish her tomorrow when the wash is dry

Are those masks conversions? 

No, most of them are just the extra heads from the warp lighting cannon and the Doomwheel. There are four, five maybe (?) from Mantic's Veer-Myn range. In hindsight I regret it a bit as GW gasmask heads weren't nearly as hard to get hold of as I thought they would be, but they manage to blend in without too much trouble I think, in spite of being at least a half again as big 😅

I have never done a pledge. I have never completed painting an army. I have never truely based a model. But here i am about to make a big contract.

 

i am going to build paint and varnish a 1000 point stormcast army by march 10th for adepticon.  Extremely last minute. Stop judging.

 

20x sequitors

5x liberators

Castellant

Lord arcanum on foot (using the magazine version of knight incantor)

Knight vexilor or knight azyros if i cant find a vexilor(thats right i dont even own that one yet and im still promising to paint.)

 

and an everblaze comet. 

 

So help me great space butterfly that dreams us into existance. I have my two test models done and im going to post the journey. 

 

I will be painting them as sandstone statues with blue osl (a technique i am also new to but great time to learn) 

 

Save me. 

 

Pics are pre OSL and full basing

I know its just primered but it was big for me. I used my airbrush to do it for the first time and it took me til the last 10 minis to finally figure it out. Took me about 4 hours but totally worth it. Anyone learning to prime with an airbrush maybe im just simple. But what kept me from having to clean the whole thing after 2 minis was using a very small amount of paint. If any paint is in the actual pot of the airbrush you have too much in there. Out of the videos i watched no one said that and that’s what i had to learn the hard way. Also picked up the two boys down front from the used bin today. Didnt get a vexilor or a castellant but got them for a dollar.

So as I've already started it this month I am going to pledge to finish my Kharadron Ironclad, including the realmgate base I'm making for it.

 

I will also pledge to get 10 arkanauts painted up because I need to push myself and get some of those bad boys coloured and ready.

Good luck! An actual deadline is key to progress ;)  And good on you for trying to include a new skill

95% finished on these guys, now to move onto 10 longbeards.

The miner models have such great character and lots of cool bits in the kit, it's a real shame they're not on sale anymore, hopefully we'll see them or their like back again someday!

 I finished my Exalted Keeper of Secrets recently! Fiends are also well of their way to being finished!

Looking good! I would just clean up the rim of the base a bit though. Also very impressed that the painting handle, well, handles that model!

Here is some progress towards my goal. 

Bases have begun being painted, the 3rd unit of swordmasters (minus one) are almost finished, the sisters are also almost finished. Frostheart Phoenix is 90% done. Highlighting the syones on the base is all that remains. 

As a reward/motivation for so many foot troops I have the first of 3 archmages on foot (horses is better game wise, foot looks better presentation wise) in the process of being built. I managed to get a finecast Alarielle on eBay and I think she will be great at unifying the SotW with the other Eldritch Council. 

As a bonus, I put together a little conversion for a future Phoenix Temple list. Anointed of Asyuran on foot.

Continuing on with my idea from last month of making no pressure-filled commitments and just showing what I've done, here is my half-month progress (as well as an image of what I will use to fuel my quest for the rest of the month).

Converting the grimghasts was my pledge for January, so yeah I'm about half a month late. I ended up being very busy with my studies, but my last exams were wednesday so I had a bit of spare time to spend on this and I want to share it anyway because it was utterly frustrating/my friends ditched warhammer again I had a ton of fun with it. Basically the idea was to make the grimghasts a bit more machine spirit-like, to which end I decided to use Deathmark heads (was thinking that lorewise the central eye is a gem which is the focal point that binds the souls) and Rods of Covenant (they kind of look like magic-powered weaponry imo) and I ordered those online.

Now the head swap was simple enough, but one thing I did not account for enough was the distance between the hands on the standard reaper scythes vs the rods of covenant. It turned out to be quite a difference, not to mention the hands were quite a bit bigger, so I had to fashion new arms from greenstuff. Now I have no experience with this and it lead to quite some frustrations: arms which sagged, fell apart or came loose. Greenstuff sticking better to my hands than to anything else despite wetting my hands a bit, not to mention that the arms of course look a bit janky as I had to make them thicker for stability and then after hardening for a day, chip away at them with a knife (reminds me, I should buy a small file probably). So in the end there were a bunch of frustrations and it doesn't look as pretty as I would have wanted it to, but it was so much fun to just try and make things work. Some of the hand positions were so close together that it was completely unfixable and I had to try some other solutions with some other random bits I had also ordered to see what they looked like/how big they were. I also loved the design on the Death Knell so I kept that one, but changed it a bit to fit more with the magitech weaponry theme. Anyway, I'll show off some pictures below, if you want to see beautiful usage of greenstuff ... close your eyes :)

So freakin’ cool. I’d love to see them painted up.

Oh yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to painting them (after some filing probably), although I likely will not have much time the coming month :( After that though!
