The Painting Contract - February 2019

Recommended Posts

Set myself a target of a unit and a hero, so just the fungoid shaman to go after I finished these guys.

I have now assembled my 20 nurgling unit fillers to go with my 40 Plague bearers.

Great paint job and an inspired idea for the base! Kudos!

It’s a bit of progress. I have attached the eels to their flying stands. Just the riders to go now.

Hello everybody,

As slow and unproductfull as January was, how well it is going this month! Pledge done, stretch done...and now as a big surprise returning to a new batch of marauders. 24 this time, here we go again....💪

Greetings zoinkboy

After getting distracted by Nighthaunt last month (pictures to follow in the January thread), I'll aim for:

5 x Chainrasp Horde

4 x Glaivewraith Stalkers

1 x Guardian of Souls

Stretch

1 x Finish converting my Chaos Lord on Daemonic Mount

1-3 x Blood Warriors from Shadespire

5 x Chainrasp Horde

Finished my pledge for February, probably going a little easy on myself as I keep finishing in time! 

Good fun painting these ghosts and learning lots, but maybe a little purple fatigue setting in...

Not a great photo, but a small update on the sisters.

Spent some time working on the gem stones. I forgot how much of a grind this is with the old high elves! The pupils for all the eyes will need to wait until a get a proper brush for them. I think I need to give the bows a blue glaze to tone down the white a little. What do you think?

Still to do is: prime the swords for the sisters back (tomorrow), and continue with the bases on all 40. It is looking like this months pledge will be completed. 

I also built/converted another Archmage for the army. I think this one is more visually unified with the Swordmasters. So he will probably see more time on the table. I think he will also get primed tomorrow.

I know they're just painted models but this is... somehow quite a macabre image.

  • 5 Bloodreavers
  • 1 Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirster
  • 1 Skullcannon (Stretch) - Replaced by Karanak.

Still can't bring myself to start my Skull Cannon cause I never envision using it in my army, maybe next month I will not swap it out last minute with something else... BUT THIS MONTH! BEHOLD OLD SKOOL KARANAK IN ALL HIS TERRIBLE SCULPT GLORY!

Hello everybody,

This month has been a good one! In the picture an overview of my pledge (20 marauders), stretch (lord on juggernaut) and ... well the start of my march pledge (24 marauders) After that only 24 marauders left to do. I'll see all of you in the next painting contract!

Greetings,

Zoinkboy

Well guys l, last day of the month and I think I can officially give a completed for the monthly pledge. I have to paint some dryad bark on the silver bases then the texture paint. The glue/wood filler is curre rly drying on the bases. They will be finished later this evening. 

After picking up the malign sorcery box for the endless spells I have read a cool piece of fluff that will result in a small change to the painted miniatures. The gems mounted on their headgear hands/weapons will be painted to resemble aetherquartz. The gems on their bodies will remain painted to resemble "grave-sand" forges into gems. The fluff for it will be added to my plog as well as unit pictures in the coming weeks. 

It's been too cold to prime the swords for the sister so they will need to wait. I thought maybe I could get away with a quick prime in the basement and its a massive no. The lone silver guy was my attempt and the fumes in the house was brutal. Alas, that will be applied to next month. 

I was reading the warscroll of the anointed on frostheart and it makes zero sense to not include that over the unmounted Phoenix. Therefore, the champion for the 3rd Swordmasters unit will be converted to an anointed and I will glue it on the base on the phoenix. His sword is missing the full hilt anyways so he is a great candidate. 

Time to think about next month! Maybe a simple goal or a reward month.

Sort of finished my stretch goals for February, although I couldn't face any more purple ghosts and did some quick objective markers instead, as they'd been sitting around for most of a year... Also got the Flesh Hound from Shadespire done and did my first bit of kit-bashing combined with some bad greenstuffing to make a Lord of Chaos on Daemonic Mount. Learnt a lot of what not to do in the future, but happy to have a Daemonic mount that looks Daemonic rather than like a spiky horse 😄

The legs, along with most of the body, the cloak, etc. are from the Chaos Lord on Manticore kit. I built mine with a Scorceror on top, so have had this guy sitting on the sprue for a while and thought he needed a home.

As before, I'll pledge towards some general goals of which I hope to achieve two or three of them:

  • Finish Tyranid Kill Team
  • Finish Space Wolf Kill Team
  • Put some paint on either my 2nd dragon or hydra
  • Complete half finished unit of Drakespawn Knights
  • Paint a Lord Relictor 

Well, didn't really do any of this. I did finish my Tyranids, but I also started and finished a Necron Kill Team. Still didn't do the rest of it!

I'm currently working on assembling a little Genestealer Cult force, I just couldn't resist knowing the sprues were just sat there. 

Promise I'll go AoS in March!
