Hello everyone! Welcome to the thread for the

Rules


  1. The category is decided upon and posted in the Painting Deathmatch Calendar. This month's category is:
    • Free for All - Any model or any sized unit from any company
  2. Only models that are painted wholly within the month are eligible to enter (i.e. unpainted or only primed at the start of the month). Entrants are not required to post a photograph of the model before painting. If you have a question as to whether or not your model qualifies, please feel free to post in this thread.
  3. You may join the painting deathmatch in progress at any time, but must submit photographs of the completed miniature by midnight GMT, 31 January 2015. WIP images are welcomed and encouraged.
  4. Miniatures that are completed in time will be eligible to win the deathmatch. The deathmatch winner will be decided in a separate voting thread by the Heresy Online community. Votes should be cast not simply on painting skill, but on merit, including creativity, application of painting techniques, individual artist improvement, etc. The winner of the deathmatch will be awarded with the Mark of Slaanesh award.
  5. Winners from the previous month are able to participate in the next months painting deathmatch, but they are not eligible to win in consecutive months.

This is not the year long Army Painting Challenge, but a separate Monthly event. Though entries in one can also be entered into the other (assuming it fits into the category chosen for this deathmatch).

Good luck to all participants!

PS - If you have any feedback on the running or structure of the monthly deathmatches throughout the course of the next month, please comment in the Calendar thread as we will take into account any feedback.http://www.heresy-online.net//uk.pinterest.com/pin/create/extension/

Does it have to be painted specifically for the deathmatch? If not, I'll add my Stormtalon. I started it Saturday, so it should be fine (if I'm reading the rules right).
Models don't have to be specifically for the deathmatch; any model painted completely within the month can be entered.

So, your Stormtalon is eligible.

Pics of the Stormtalon (still WIP). Since this is a competition, I'm trying out some new stuff. It's washed really heavily around the engines and exhaust holes to try to look worn. I think it might still need some more. I also tried out some "battle damage" on the tail with the broken aquila and scratch in the paint. I had first tried giving the aquila up front "cracks" but it looked too manufactured. I might paint over the scratch on the tail and do it again at a different angle because I don't like the look of it yet. Seems a little off. Also still want to touch up the wash around the aquilas.

Recovered and rebuilt in the Grand Forges Temples of Sidera Maris, the Omnissiah permits the rebirth of one of its favorite sons; a Thanatar Siege-Automata, Izyx-Ramerius-41.


Santa-Omnissiah got this for me for Christmas.

Finished! I may revisit it later for some bits and pieces, but I've got a Gorkanaut to be cracking on with by next week.

I'll take a shot at an entry this month, with my Stormcast Eternals Lord-Relictor.

Zhardsnark is a great model to paint, top job! :good:
Cheers Mate! - And that Stompa is epic!

Still not a fan of the skirt on a Stompa but that's the model, not your paintjob. Working on a conversion from a Dreamforge Leviathan Crusader :p
