Monthly painting challenge 2017 -- March

Plaid goes significantly beyond my abilities. I look forward to seeing this finished. Good work so far.

Thank you so much!

I owe my plaid superpower to years of playing/painting a Celtic themed Space Wolves army. Each squad had a different tartan on their pinky-nail-sized tabards. Datsue's skirt is a bit more difficult in that there are more contours to the garment, but the basic process is the same.

Man pretty much everything in here makes me feel embarrassed to post my finished products lol... Great job everyone!

It's like any other skill. You have to love the work in and of itself, dedicate at least fifteen minutes of every day to it, and be diligent and careful in how you practice.

The concept of natural talent is mostly a lie. More accurate to call it discipline and disposition. Practice, practice, practice... 

And thin your paints. :)

@so_diogenes What ringsnake says is so true about practice....and thinning your paint....

....most importantly you have decided to paint your crews and as a result they will be individual because you chose the colours to use and they will be 100 times better than grey plastic

@Viruk I'm loving the eyes of your models. Any tips?

@wizuriel avoid using pure white, something like bleached bone or any slightly tinted white works much better. As for the pupils - this is just a matter of practice, even after years of painting I sometimes need a few attempts to get the eyes right

@SoylentRobot Henchmen with a soul stone cost of 0 are valued at 13ss minus their cache value. So your Vik of Blood (which I believe has a cache of 3) counts as a 10ss model! How's that for a bonus?

I'm pleased with Johan and the birds. (Johan looks better IRL than in the pic) Disappointed with the Fire Gamin but sometimes I think you just have to put the brush down and walk away. It at least looks better than plain dayglow Orange.

@Searos The rules are in the enrollment thread.  Basically, state how many SS a month you will paint, post before and after photos.  You will need to paint quick to avoid you first Mulligan.  If you can't find the rules I will post a link later, when I'm not on this little tablet.

Finally posting my completed models. Hooray for procrastination!!

Credit to @SongOfTheSo'mer for suggesting I make extra Changelings from the figures on the Mysterious Emissary's base.

With those added, (Changeling = 4ss (X2))my total SS cost goes to 60ss

nice idea about the changelings. It definetly looks like something the emissary would summon.

I'm actually doing the mysterious emissary (and maybe changelings) for april.

 

Greetings, Joachim.

I've already painted Raspy, an Ice Gamin (4 ss), an Ice Dancer (6 ss), and an Ice Golem (10 ss) this month. Do those count or not? Either way I'll paint 2 Ice Gamin (4 ss each) and 2 Wind Gamin (4 ss each)

These are the bonus models that were painted beyond my pledge. Funny thing, I painted more SS in bonus (39 SS) than I did for my pledge (31 SS) haha. 70 SS for the month - woo!

Hey guys!

Here is the steam trunk which was my last model for this month and some friends I managed to get done too which wasn't considered at the beginning of March. Sorry for the pics, I'll try to take some better ones!
