  1. @Viruk: I think for next month's Challenge, I'll be asking people to show their unpainted stocks of Malifaux minis ... I think I have a good chance of having the biggest Shelf of Shame.
  2. Caedrus, checking in! Greetings, fellow painters. I hope that, wherever you are in the world, that you are safe, well and happy. In fact, here in Australia, it's RUOK ("Are you OK?") Day, where we encourage everyone to ask those around you if they are OK, in terms of their mental health. So, in that spirit, I hope all my fellow painters are OK! My apologies, folks, it's been a crazy time for me of late. In fact, one of the reasons for this (if you'll forgive a personal anecdote) is that Caedrus is now Dr. Caedrus! Woo! However, onto far more important things - painting! Thi
  3. For September, my pledge will be Arik Schöettmer, aka the Freikorps Strongarm. Anyone want to guess what mine will be a homage to? Now, if only my sculpting skills were the equal of my vision! Have a great September, folks! Caedrus.
  4. Are you interested in running the 2021 Painting Challenge? Fellow painters, with September's arrival, the end is in sight for 2020 (and what a fascinating year it has been so far...). I've had lots of fun hosting the Challenge, but it's probably time for me to ask if there is a fellow painter out there who would like to host next year. Is anyone up for the task? If so, put your digital hand up! Caedrus.
  5. Welcome to the 2020 Wyrd Painting Challenge! This is the thread for the September Painting Challenge. I’m Caedrus, and I have the very great pleasure of being your host for 2020. While I am proud to be your host, this competition belongs to all of us, and if there’s anything that we can better to improve the Challenge, please do let me know. The link to the painter spreadsheet is here. September was the month of the Roman God, Vulcan. That makes September a great month to paint some fire! And, with it being the Northern hemisphere's Autumn, it's a perfect time to break out thos
  6. Caedrus, checking in! Folks, my apologies, I've been a bit non-communicative the last couple of weeks. There's a lot of busy going on in my world right now! So much so, in fact, that I have painted just one Malifaux mini this month. However, I spent, if I'm honest, waaaay too much time on a single minion. Still, I wanted to mess about with this mini for ages, and I had a plan in mind, and it actually worked out! Here he is, 8SS of Drachen Trooper! In case you were interested, the flames are greenstuff (formed over a bent paperclip for the jet of flame), and the thicker fue
  7. Caedrus, reporting in! First up for this month, I completed the Ashes and Dust trio! I messed about with a new NMM Brass scheme. I like the colours, but I butchered some of the painting. I liked the contrast, and the temperature contrast, though. Secondly, a bigger project, the complex and vast Talos! Everything about this was time consuming. The subassemblies, losing two pieces, the purple-Soulstone base, and lots of glazing. The NMM isn't perfect, but I'm happy with the result. So, that's my July - sorry I haven't given much feedback, but it's
  8. @astapable: Welcome to the Painting Challenge!
  9. Caedrus, cutting it tight! With a minute to spare! Expect better photos soon, but for the moment, I got there! Caedrus.
  10. Dear All, As I desperately try to get my minis finished for July, I realised that I have nothing set up for August. But that's OK, because I have a lone Drachen Trooper sitting on my desk. So, that's my pledge. 8 points of Flammerwerfer goodness. I'll do something else, maybe even getting started on the terrain pieces I've been promising myself for ... wow ... a looong time. See you in August - take care of yourselves, and keep putting pigment to plastic! Caedrus.

  12. @Negalith: they're the same scale, but the legs on the female sculpts are preposterously long 🤨.
  13. That's what I did - TTB parts and some (amateur) sculpting.
  14. Australia based here (NSW). I could go halves with you if that helps!
  15. Caedrus, reporting in!//imgur.com/3yUbnT4 Here's my Work in Progress of Talos, and the Ashes and Dust trio! https://imgur.com/3yUbnT4 The Talos is really, really time consuming, but I wanted to stretch and see how much I could get with a brass toned NMM. I may even get them all finished by the end of the month! Feedback is very, very welcome! Stay safe, stay well. Caedrus.
  16. @Nikodemus: Loving the samurai. If you wanted to add some colour, why not consider some heat effects?
  17. ...meanwhile, it's evening on July 1st in Australia, and imgur still refuses to let me upload images... Ha! I found a workaround! Caedrus, reporting in! Folks, it has taken me a couple of years, but I’ve finally done it. I’ve actually painted what I’ve pledged, rather than getting sidetracked by something shiny! Here they are: First up, the Blessed of December: https://imgur.com/6SsOADt So this lovely lady was a quick job. In retrospect, I might have worked in a few more browns in there, but the desolate whites and blues fit in with the theme. Happy with
  18. This month, I pledge to finish my Ashes and Dust trio, and Talos! Pictures to come soon!
  19. A Special July Challenge So, this month, I thought I would ask you, my fellow painters, who are your inspirational painters? If you're anything like me (well, my commiseration, for a start), you might watch some regular painting blogs / vlogs / youtube channels. Who do you watch? What do you read? Now, my immediate answer will be Bob Ross, because, well, it's Bob Ross. However, for miniature painting, my faves are: Serpentarium. One of the painters who spent quite a bit of time on this forum, @Ringil, and the rest of the Serpentarium team have done lots of deligh

  21. Caedrus, checking in! It's looking promising, folks! I may actually paint exactly what I pledged for June. It's unheard of! I've been watching everyone's work, and as usual, it's lovely! Here are my thoughts, for what it's worth! @Viruk: Two lovely sets of Silent Ones, Blessed and Hoarcats! Are you doing a set for a friend as well? The desaturated cloaks / horns / hoarcat coats are very nice. I stayed mostly in variations of blue for mine, but your (far more realistic) ones are lovely! I love the grungy nightmares, as well. @Hellomurse: A nice Amina and Alexei! A few picked o
  22. @GroundPounderX, welcome to the Forums! I'm not so much in charge, more of a helpful guide, whenever I can! In previous years, it'd be too late to join our yearly Challenge, but we're trialing a new 'Buy Back' system, discussed at the link @Diddick mentioned. Have a read through that thread, make a pledge level (you can post here, or send me a message), and join in! This is a tremendously positive place, with painters from a vast range of experience levels and styles. So, welcome on board!
  23. Caedrus, Reporting in! So, June has turned into a bit of a month of experimentation, where I've been messing with different NMM colour recipes (oh, Reaper Bones, I'm so wonderfully non-emotionally-invested in you). However, I've also had time to finish a Malifaux Child: This kid was quite a bit of fun. I had a play with less saturation, and lower contrast. I learned quite a bit. Then, I started work on a larger project! This is just a little WIP shot of my Ashen Core (don't worry, I know the top of the spiky-platform isn't on corrrectly!) As always, I'm
