The Painting Contract - March 2019

Recommended Posts

Thanks Pal!

Means a lot especially after seeing your Blight Kings which are outstanding. I can see we both have a similar “naturalistic” (as far as can be within a high fantasy setting at any rate) approach to what we’re trying to paint.

Absolutely. I am trying to break away from my set style and add a bit more high contrast into my units. So hopefully this will add a bit of variety to my units :)

First contract! will post pics once i finish drybrushing hair. 

I have 40 ghouls, 1 terrorgheist, 3 horrors/flayers im going to magnetize and the 3 endless spells. i would say they are all about 60% done. 

Stretch would be to have one of my carrion empire halves built and based.

First two test models for my orruk boyz. I will aim for 10, any more will be the stretch. They are pretty quick now that I have the formula sorted.

Hmm, pictures looked better on the phone. Ah well, 8 to go and any more is a win. Only 30 to get through...

Some good progress early in the month today. 

2 Archmages are underway. The Alarielle one is giving me a few fits though. It's a struggle to imagine how I can tie her into the other units. There are not enough other surfaces on her to bring all the colours together. Thankfully I have another Archmage ready to go if I am not satisfied by the end results. 

The final Swordmaster is also underway, but I figure I have shared 29 of them already. One update on them though. I have begun the conversion process to make their old unit champion into an Anointed for the Phoenix base. The sword has been cut off and I am building an appropriate looking halberd. That squad will need a new champion. I may add that into my monthly pledge as a bonus. 

The other Archmage is really.coming along nicely and I can see the connection with the rest of the army! His head is waiting to he primmed. The old one was kinda ruined, do a new head is on the way. I think it will look better in the end anyways. 

The dragon is also ready for primer. All the pieces are cleaned and ready to be painted seperately. As for the rider, its currently an Archmage but I am cleaning up the parts to also make a Drakeseer. I am not sure which is the better choice yet.

Just shields to go then that will be 16 Sequitors finished.

Should have been 20 but I decided to be clever half way through and do some conversions to 4 I’d already painted, and they didn’t work! Alright! So I had to buy a whole new box of 10! Outstanding! 🤪

I set a contract for myself to get my adepticon army done. I set the due date for today. While we aren't done here's the progress. 

 

 

Front boys have their top highlight done and a last minute list change means we  have an entire lord arcanum to paint.  Plus an everblaze comet. But basing is roughly cut out. Just needs drybrushed and a little flock.

 

We also have a display board to do and less than ten days. It's not the quality I want but it's the quality I got. I want to make sure i atleast do the bare minimum, painted and based army, display board, so when im across those with gorgeous armies and boards it isnt completely offensive to em.

I know it’s not AoS (sorry) but it’s still painting - Nitschs squad from Rogue Trader. Lovely models and well worth spending some time on if you have them.

Some basing to do

Ok road to arepticon update. I am now doing OSL. Ive never done it and i wanted to do it with my airbrush. I spent a solid hour cleaning and clearing it soaking it getting out any paint that got gummed up. went to put the nozzle back on it, but my hand slipped and and i ripped all but the threads of the nozzle off. Its busted big rip. So AIO this set and drybrushed it heres the result18B3387C-4DF2-4981-9B42-8F2311F72AE0.jpeg.1ed795f2f1d1aa71c4dc3194a5f36443.jpeg

pretty chalky and bad. Especially around the eyes his shoulder pad caught the brush and the edges are extremely bright with nothing in the middle

 

so we wentnout dropped 50 on air brush sucked it up and im much happier with these. Still wish i didnt have to rush andnim really happy with the color pallet. But wish i had the skill and time to pull off what this could really beEC1CAF58-19D9-4FDA-B8A7-01CC0D95E0C2.jpeg.b95023367b45726219b464d1ce5a7c00.jpeg232559D6-32BF-4B3B-9FB3-5A294AF18C13.jpeg.b7323f2edd7d3a4b1b267377869f4bfb.jpeg161BDEBF-A20C-4E0C-9FA3-477B8CDE2737.jpeg.380e237b0f186eaa044b0d1b91eb1bfe.jpeg

30 vulkites (3 already painted) 

runesmiter on magmadroth 

5 auric hearthguard 

5 hearthguard berzerkers

 

target for this month is to paint (at least) 7 vulkite berzerkers to get the first 10 finished, and the magmadroth. With any luck I’ll get a bit further than that still.

Mid month update and actually reaching my target already. I’ve found a relatively quick way of painting the vulkites which helps. Magmadroth just needs basing, the runesmiters cloak painting and a final few highlights. I’ve had picked up 10 more vulkites and a both of hearthguard so hopefully I’ll get those started soon.

February was superb, gonna try and get everything but my hordes of battlelines done by the end of this month.

  • Magore's Fiends
  • 1 SKULLCANNON (No excuses for this one this month)
  • 1 Exalted Hero of Chaos (Wulfrik the Wanderer resin model)
  • Stretch = any amount of the 70 Bloodreavers and 20 Blood Warriors I have sitting here staring at me..

Good luck with your goals my friends!

Super quick and grungy Skullcannon, this was a very hard miniature for me to do as I really had zero motivation to complete it. Stopped short of most edge highlighting besides drybrushing, glad to have this thing out of my brain - for a little while atleast...

Does anyone else find that painting a model just for the sake of getting it done is harder than painting one you want to use on the table?

No, not at all. (but that will be different for all of us i imagine)

Just finished my stretch goal, NOT a unit of marauders! Next to that it will not be used on the table, but had a lot of fun painting it.

Yes but that’s basic human psychology isn’t it? Most people find it a lot easier to do something if it has a (short term) benifit vs no personal benefit. So painting because I can play is yeah! Painting because I’m forcing myself to do finish my backlog.. is meh. 

Or that’s how I rationalise it for my self ;)
