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:
    • Vehicle/Monster - Any vehicle or monster from any company. Any miniatures on 40mm+ bases not classed as monsters are included in this category.
  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 July 2014. 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.

Here is my submission to the Deathmatch. Thought I'd go for a little of vehicle and monster.

Ladies and Gentlemen!! I give you the Forgefiend!!!
Part machine! Part demonic monster!



I did magnetize the monstrosity to capitalize on possible forgefiend configurations.
I really have to say these Deathmatches have gotten me to go and actually paint some stuff I've been putting off painting.

I'm not sure if this will actually count for the contest. Technically It's a vehicle, and technically it's on a 40mm base, but I'll leave it up to Dave T Hobbit to decide. If not, that's OK enjoy the pew-pew ship pics!

Here's what I started with this month:



Here's what I changed it to:





This is my Rebellion B-wing repaint for the double-make-believe Teal Squadron. I tried to give the ship a beat up dirty look, given the limited resources and guerrilla nature of the rebellion this seemed appropriate. This was a quick and fun model to paint, I went all out with the weathering; chipped paint, dirt buildup in cracks and crevasses, carbon scorching on the laser cannon tips and engine glow.
