The Painting Contract - February 2019

Recommended Posts

Hello folks and welcome to the Painting Contract for February 2019!

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 or models for Age Of Sigmar, Blood Bowl, Blitz Bowl, Warhammer Underworlds, Warhammer Quest Silver Tower / Shadows Over Hammerhal, or Gorechosen.

Since February is a short month we will be closing the contract on the 26th (rather than the usual 28th) 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've realised that despite being a Chaos collector since about 2003, I have never fully painted a unit of Chaos Knights, so they are first on the list this month.

Goals:

5 Chaos Knights (of Khorne)

5 more Bloodreavers 

And in the background, keep working on Skarbrand!

last month proved that even with a 6 week old you can get (very little) painting done ;)  So a very small list this time. Just a list of things close to done, and everything on here I can finish is a bonus:

Close to done:
Garreks Reavers 50% done
Frigate 80% done
Cauldron crew 95% done
Stormcast Skirmish Squad 50% done.

Everything already basecoated but stretch: 10 gors, 2 Beastlords, 1 Khemist, 1 Overtyrant, 3 Nurglings, most of a souls war box build.

January was a tough painting month. I hit a bit of a stalemate with the winter weather. It became to cold for me to do any priming in my garage and I wasn't able to prime the sister bows or swords. 

February's painting contract will be a simple one. I will complete my contracts from December and January. Only after they are completed will I add to my February one.

I'm In:

Committed:
Aether-Khemist
10 x Arknaut Company
10 x Grundstok Thunderers

Pushing it:
Knight-Incantor
10 x Arknaut Company
9 x Endrinriggers


* Seems like a lot, but one of the newer players at my FLGS was given flak for having a drybrushed army, ironically by someone who's army isn't even painted.  So I've decided to do a majority of this force by drybrushing to show that it's okay and can look good.  Here's hoping I can deliver on the second part.


(Off question, what are people using for img hosting?)

Thats just dumb, especially if that person didn’t even make the effort. Dry brushing is just another technique to use. Good on you for having his back. 

I also upload directly to this site, as I use it as a painting log as well. Uploads through image hosts can disappear On this forum once in a while.

My Goal is quite simple: finish my Nurgle!

Which means:

  • Finishing detail work on 20 more plaguebearers
  • Making Plaguebearer unit fillers out of nurglings
  • Build and paint 3 more flies
  • Convert and paint demon prince
  • Paint 6 nurgling bases
  • Paint GUO magnetised arms
  • Base everything! (only the GUO has a finished base)

Most of my work so far (not the best photo):

And I finally finished of my Tzaangor enlightenment and their fellow shaman.

This little fellow really took everything out of me (I literally needed a day to paint one of these) thankfully Nurgle had his hands in it, and well gifted me with one of his pestilential  gifts.  Next to literally missing  work that’s piling up, I at least had enough time to paint.
