Nice Honka.

OK all I will be closing this thread on Monday 3rd Feburary.

My plan to regain my used token has gone to the pooper. Ooops. Well, here's my entry so I don't lose any tokens, at least.

Oh, and I've only just noticed that it looks rather messy in the picture. Trust me, it's not that messy. I think.

If you still need time you have this weekend basically. Thread closes on the 3rd remember.

I have to check a couple of queries regarding last months completed entry numbers but I should have a revised list in the January entry thread. So if I have not replied to you, don't worry I will be looking into the numbers over the weekend between rugby matches.

Okay everyone, no need to enter this competition anymore. I think Loki just broke it!

Looks fantastic!

Yeah thats shocking picture quality! :laugh:

Great miniature Loki. Now go to the back of the class and write down 100 times 'I must not paint my figures better than Humakt'

Although that is seriously well done mate. Keep it up.

Ok so that's quite a tough figure to come after but here's my FW Bloodthirster..
I'm not 100% happy with him yet but it's reasonable table top quality so hopefully counts for the challenge :)

He still needs varnishing but the weather in the UK at the moment isn't conducive to outdoor spraying. So eventually he will have a matt varnish and the black armour plates will be gloss (good old floor polish as gloss varnish).

Also I will be changing the base -hence a basic black paint job. All the rest of my Daemons are on lava bases but the supplier doesn't do large oval ones yet - but he said he will in the near future so I'll do a proper job of that then.

Anyway here he is - I'm quite happy with him for now :wink:

First squad done--the 10 Daemonettes with Instrument. Going to see if I can't haul ass on the Vindicator to get in in before the deadline as well, whenever that deadline might be...

Only one crest fringe on this squad, and I find myself missing the splash of color it gave the other bunch of Daemonettes I did, but all in all, I think they'll look good mixed together. Going to base my 'Nettes in squads of 20 so I can tell them apart if I want to field a purple-and-silver wave. Only 40 more Daemonettes (and 15 Seekers) left to paint! ...of my Slaaneshi daemons. Not to mention the Fiends or second Slaaneshi DP.

I can feel your pain - I'm currently painting 40 Daemonettes and 20 Seekers :S

It's interesting to see them with such a dark theme though! I think that's the first - Like ever - I have seen :good:

Tawa 01-31-14 10:11 AM

Nice colour contrast there Mossy! :good:

Stormxlr 01-31-14 02:31 PM

Nice daemonettes! I never liked those models though : / not lusty enough! I have seen some conversions of 28mm amazon women models into Daemonnets/Succubi with some hands turned into those claws and it fit perfectly. Try to look it up, looks dozen times better then official gw models

Mossy Toes 01-31-14 03:54 PM

I really disliked the models at first, too, especially compared to the 4e metal Daemonette models. Still, though, these ones have... grown on me. I guess there's a Stockholm Syndrome component to assembling 60 (75?) of the things.

I tend to see light Slaaneshi and dark Nurgle models, so I'm trying to flip the tables around with my own Daemons models. Going for a possibly slightly more typical dark bloody Khornate, but at least my Tzeentchi are going to be mostly green, rather than blue or pink.

...in other words, a riotous panoply of color and confusion. The Chaos Gods wouldn't want it any other way...

Some 'Phil Kelly style' Tyranids I've been painting. The colour scheme is quick and lazy, but the black, yellow, blue contrast works quite well. I also tried out the new basing paint, which took some time to figure out, but is quite cool when used right. now the only thing left to do is flock the bases.

More gaunts I painted earlier in the month. I don't have a before photo of these fellas.
http://i959.photobucket.com/albums/a...ps2e6cb9dd.jpg

The warriors have a minor conversion. I dislike how the stock devourer looks on the warrior chassis, so I've used a deathspitter with the barrel replaced with the devourer barrel. They actually fit together quite well, and IMO look heaps better.

iamtheeviltwin 02-01-14 05:43 AM

Looking good. I've been thinking about doing a black base color scheme on my 'nids, those have helped me decide it will be a good looking scheme.

iamtheeviltwin 02-01-14 05:36 PM

Snuck my second entry in here at the last minute. It's been sitting unpainted on my bench for about 6 months. Here is my Farseer/Spiritseer for my Harlequins. Click through my project log below to see a few more pics.

That is a beautiful color scheme on that Vindi, Grimzag. Very crisp, with a good color contrast.

KjellThorngaard 02-02-14 03:45 AM

First of my two entries. Just waiting for the laquer to dry on the second before I take pics and post them.

Well here is my effort a wee Land speeder, my second entry never even got a whiff paint unfortunely

KjellThorngaard 02-03-14 03:39 AM

Second entry, ten more High Elf Sword Masters. Just to prove they are new, I included on of the first batch. Happily they are a perfect match.
