@Joachim Guess Abuela is worth some more picts. I was impressed when you presented the first steps of her painting. the details on the sombrero were amaizing.

Thanks, ill definitely take some more detail picks. Maybe after i tried the tip from @Burnin' Coal for the rust effect.

I totally lost track of time (life happens) and thought the Creature Feature was ending next week. Fortunately I realized last night so I could submit my "back up" entry. I was in no danger of winning this anyway but I'm sad I didn't get to finish the piece I originally wanted to enter.

Good luck to everyone else who entered.

Blood ward mage for 6 additional soulstones, putting me at 15ss for the month. I should maybe forget about using my phone to take picture and stick to my wife's:

@Amdor any news from the performer? @Boomstick I remember a Vogel in progress. @bedjy what happened with Bettari and those pigs?

@MunkyMuddFace @Piccio @Kogan Style @Aa7 @PetitDalek  @mrcoblin @Icarius @Chou @Strangely Brown @Hound Grey you're not thinking about using your first mulligan right? :) 

What about @RustAndTheCity @Treehouse @Scatterbrain @Treemonkey @Kimberly @Phinn @Stonewall78 @iamfanboy @Ishkul @Rikk @Le Mulot @hemgath @tjgreenway ? How are you doing this month?

I'm taking things down to the wire this month.  Witchling Thrall is finished, everything else is one or two little bits away from done.  Will post pictures on the 30th!

Great mage BTW! :)

@Franchute I suppose I could add to my completed models for this month the mini I uploaded for the Beast Contest, but I have not idea of when the contest will be closed and pics will be free for upload. May be @Kimberly could clarify this point.

I have no problem with this.

Voting ends in 15 hours so we can upload them after that.

I can confirm both Purple Mist and H4ml3t have completed models. 

Honestly I was expecting to see more people from MPC taking part to "The Creature Competition". I was also surprised to see more models from other ranges/companies. But the easely predictable presence of GW models, ther are more minis from Kinghdom Death Monster 1.5.

Well, no one can accuse most KD monsters of being humanoid!

@Franchute thanks for checking in! Unfortunately, I've been hit with a bit of a hobby slump this month. I just haven't been much interested in anything I've tried to paint, and generally feeling unmotivated. But here are some models that I have worked on to some degree or another in the past, hopefully I can finish off at least 15 SS worth!! I'd hate to use a mulligan!

Here's to hoping a relatively uninspired month (for me) will leave me recharged for May.

That said, I have really enjoyed everybody's posts for this month! I have looked at most of them, at least in passing, and as usual all of you guys put forth some really great stuff!! I am sorry for not being quite so engaged this time around.

I was surprised by that too, but I think it depends on painting processes for people and what models they have available. 

For me, I actually had to jump my planned painting order by A LOT to get to a model that qualified as a 'creature'. 

For some, they may not have had a 'creature' lying around to paint, or simply weren't inspired to paint that particular model at the time.

Saying all this, I will submit my creature in lieu of Vintage Sonnia this month. She had to get put off so I could paint my beastie. 

Now I just have to finish up those stitched...

@Franchute not by any means! I've finished Ama no Zako, two jorogumos and the hodepodge emissary, but I only have pictures from the WIPs (except from Ama no Zako). I'll try to do the third jorogumo or the desperate mercenary before the deadline. 

I'm not a big fan of showing unfinished models but well, here are some pictures of those models (I'll update them by the end of the month with more crappy pictures):

I finally finished my Coraline Candy for 9 stones! I painted her like she was wearing a yellow raincoat and boots with jeans. I am quite happy with the Kill Bill blood effect ūüėĬ†

I have a hard time taking photos with my phone, I'll try to take pics of the two terrain pieces I made (a fountain and a clock tower) with my partner's phone later.

And here she is! Innocence incarnated:

I also started Wendigo,which was my only unpainted creature mini, but forgot about the deadline like so many others. However, I wouldn't have painted him without the contest and he only needs highlights, so it was still good to try to participate ūüėܬ†

 

@Chou  you have quite a lot of minis going on! They all look very promising, Ama with her vibrant colours is my favourite.

Hey @Franchute I think I will be; not felt the Malifaux painting bug bite after the Hamelin crew took some damage at a recent tournament. I'm still grieving.
