We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

I blew both my mulligans on the first two months of the event. Hopefully I can get it in gear this month.

@LordZombie fingers crossed that you make it.....the more the merrier  ;)

@Kutslo figures are looking good...nice rich blue you have used - very striking

I love the skin tone of Snow Storm @Kutslo. How did you do it?

I used a mix of old and new GW paints but sure they all have current equivalents. It was dheneb stone basecoat, highlighted with pallid wych flesh and then lightly dry brushed with white. I then used the sepia shade all over, but fairly lightly to try and stop it pooling too much. I then just did a final highlight of quite thinned down pallid wych to cover any raised bits that were too dark.

Didn't take too long really!

Finished both Guardians, and even started on my brothers second Guild Lawyer and Granny Ortega - who was by far the most annoying model I had to put together in a looong time :angry:

Alright, my WIP post and pledge for May:

fkw2hQf.jpg

 

So far, I don't see any chance of that happening, even getting minimal soulstones will be hard, but we'll see:
- Primordial Magic - 2SS
- Lilitu - 7SS
- Lelu - 7SS
- Mature Nephilim - 11SS
- Miss Ery - 11SS

I'm slowly making progress on more constructs. I've also made a base for Hoffman

This month, I'm offering up a Guild Sargent. I ran out of my usual primer, and I think the new stuff I tried ate up some of the detail on her face. Or is she naturally baby faced?

Either way, as soon as May is over, the school year will be over for me, and I hope to offer up more models per month!

You can do it, LZ!  You're not the only one to use them up.  Just think of it as confidently letting the first two go by because you know you don't need them.

We're all pulling for you. I know what it's like to have a hectic schedule.

So I might be mulliganing this month. My urgency to move has been stepped up. Last week I packed some of my books and when I tried to move my bookshelf, it fell apart. Rotted clear through. And there was a massive sprout of black, green, and red mold in a triangle all down the wall behind the bookcase.

But I'll be declaring what I didn't finish last month: Von Schill (15), his totem (3), 2 Freikorpsmann (10), Student of War (4), and Hodgepodge Effigy (4). 36 total. I might be able to find a day off sometime in May to do these guys.

I finished Rasputina for 15ss so far this month which at least covers me for my Henchman pledge level. Trouble is that I've got over a dozen more that need assembly/painting and that's further behind than o would like to be. I need to get Snow Storm and at least 3 more done this month.

Work in progress shots of my Genbu and Luther.  Most of the base colours on there now.  The colour scheme on Genbu is based loosely on that of the eastern painted turtle.  I am planning on doing his plastron (I think that is what the ventral shell part is called---any herptologists out there?) based on a different species of painted turtle, which has a bit more character.  Doing the eyes on Luther is a joy after trying to paint squnity-eyed models half this size.  For the hightlights on the dark parts, like the cobblestones and Luther's hat, I am trying to make them more vibrant after seeing the work of others like RustintheCity.  I am also experimenting a bit with the metal on Genbu's sword (which I now notice does not show up in these angles).

Not even half way through May---still lots of time to get some paint on!

It's not obvious from my pics, but Rasputina's eyes/face are better than my previous work thanks to Sandmann's tips last month.

Having the tools and knowledge help a great deal but I also still have to work with my own eyesight and brush control and those are somewhat limiting factors...

Got some work in on the "Snow" part of Snow Storm. Thought I'd share a couple of in progress pics.

Ughhh, looking at all theses lovely models, I gotta get my self in gear and get some paint on some plastic. Gonna continue with the Asami crew this month, starting with a katanaka sniper and Ama no zako. Then I'm gonna start working on the minion summons (tengu, yokai, obsidian oni, and jorogumo). I have a really neat basing idea for the summons that I'm excited to share with you fine folks. Cheers, and happy painting.
