Monthly painting challenge 2017 -- May

70 posts in this topic

May:  I am opening up the May thread two days early as I will be out of contact for about a week.  Rest assured that I will update the tracking sheet with your April models when I get back to civilization at the end of the first week of May.  

What is this?:  This is a friendly painting community, not a competition.  Remember that this is a fan-based thing only, and is not sponsored or approved by Wyrd in any way (i.e., screw-ups are on me, not them.).  I am simply continuing the tradition started by Jaxx23 and Vaiuri and maybe others before them.  I may offer a prize, if I can figure out how to make the judgement with different people in different categories.  Maybe one prize for each category for the person who hits the goal every month and paints the most above the limit?  Maybe if y'all promise to not get too competitive on me, we'll see.

Rules:   can be found in the Monthly painting challenge enrollment post.  Or just ask me.  Most importantly at this point, everyone gets two misses before being booted.  So, if you join now you are already at strike 2.  Finished models count for the month in which they are posted, i.e., post your models before the end of the month.

Tracking sheet can be found at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1fUeZczizoFoMjwVDcJVpJtYkKiRvTOf5HpniRHrmijU/edit?usp=sharing

Posting:  At the START of the month: post a photo of your unpainted minis and any plans for them you have.  In the MIDDLE of the month: post work in progress photos if you want, or just banter about ideas.  At the END of the month: post your finished models and the Soul Stone Cost painted, and I will get this on the tracking sheet.

Aaaaaannnnnnnnnnd GO!

My models for May will be Luther and Genbu!  I have been wanting to get some paint on these since Adepticon 2016.

I'm definitely aiming to finish the Toshiro and Yan Lo that I started this week, beyond that my queue is quite deep again, I think I'll definitely get to Izamu, Chiaki and 3 Ashigaru. That's what...55 stones?

Hello,

I have to finish the Ramos box in May. So I'll try to paint these two:

I have already started as you can see. I've applied a brown primer, a brown wash, orange drybrush and metalic drybrush. I have to give them more life now.

I finished Nellie last month. This month my goal is to finish Phiona, the printing press, and a field reporter. We're doing a Rapid Growth league here so these models will be for the league. I'll try and post a WIP picture part way though (Chrome is giving me issues adding a picture at the moment).

I am trying to catch up on last month and finish the Ulix Box and start painting the Zipp-Box.

So my plan is:

Ulix (15ss), 3 Iron Skeeters (18ss) --> 32 ss in total :-)

First of May, first of May, outdoor...painting...starts today. Well, not really, as it's been an on-and-off downpour for the last few days and doesn't look like much is changing soon. Luckily, painting (and gluing) can just as easily take place indoors!

For May I'll be whipping up a few mercenaries. Namely: Sue, a librarian, a trapper, and two Ronin (guess I better decide which two), along with my Easter self-present, the Nightmare Coryphee. Total comes to 47 soulstones.

Have to say first off how much I am enjoying seeing all the different takes on models...totally inspiring 

For May and 9SS I will finish Carlos Vasquez  who I started last month... then I will carry on with the Performer theme with two Coryphee for  7SS each....If I get on well with those I will start on one of the Mounted Guards I just picked up

So for May I'll be working towards finishing the Slurids, Gupp Swarms, Sanctioned Spellcaster and Governor's Proxy that I proposed in March. The Slurids have not been cooperating so I've rebase coated two of them as punishment. I'm also adding 2 Guild Riflemen to the pool.

Another month, and some more painting to be done. This month, I am settling in with the storms and bringing in a little Thunder of my own!

My May pledge will be Molly and a couple of punks for 27SS. The start on the punks are pretty old, from 1+ (necropunk) and 2+(punk zombie) years ago. I am not going to strip them, but I am going to paint over what is there.large.5907ee4d7bea0_maypaintingpledge.jp

For May I'm aiming to at least finish Rasputina and Snow Storm. Hopefully I'll do more after them.

So some quick work on Merris for Saturday. I need to blend her rocket better, but think she is coming along nicely.

Here are my models for May:

Minis_Mayo.png

The two freikorps I didn't paint in April (2 x 5 SS) + 2 December Acolytes (2 x 7 SS) + Wendigo (3 SS) = 27 SS. If there is time left I'll squish Leveticus in May, if not he'll wait until June.

Models based, basecoated and the metallics done (as you can see, the wash was still drying on them when I took the photo). On to all the details...
