Monthly painting challenge -- December

Recommended Posts

I've decided to try and work on whatever crew I'm playing next as to try and get some completely finished crews out there (which proves to be annoying as a lot of cool models are coming out, looking at you grootslang). Tomorrow I'm playing titania and I'm doing my best to finish grootslang and (probably not) barbaros by tomorrow.

For barbaros I used some brighter colors, I'm using this color throughout my neverborn though here it is a bit stronger.

For grootslang I'm using the same color but toned down to a more greyish tone as bright colors don't fit the mini imo. I'm really glad with the base. A lot of work went into that thing.

 

Tell me what you think about the color schemes especially.

@Joachim I think your colors are looking great. I especially like the transition on Barbados' wings. 

Grootslang's base looks amazing but I worry about it effecting playability. How much height does it add? Is it stable? (Not trying to be negative. Just bringing up concerns and wondering how you've addressed them.)

Good luck finishing them for your game tomorrow. #playpainted

It is close to 5".

It are absolutely valid concerns. I was worried about the stability, but it amazed me how stable the model is. The wall is also pinned into the base with quite broad pins. 

Heightwise, it is already quite a big model, now it is higher but not as wide. So only if there is terrain where you can stand under this could be influenced.

These are really great, Joachim.  The wings on Barbaros are very nice with that transition.  I love the grootslang's gloss look, especially on the tongue.

Two models done, and one to go for 2017!  I got distracted by a few other hobby things (spider factory board terrain, playing with chameleon paints, building necromunda) and had to rush these, but I think they came out okay.

I've been able to finish the grootslang, didn't do as much as I planned but it's just that time of year.

So I finished datsu bah (8ss) and groostlang (6ss) for a total 14ss.

 

@prof_bycid I've used glazes for the darker colors in the face and the end of the arms/legs. But it causes a gloss for a couple of hours, so when I took the pictures it was still glossy, when it's not like that in reality. I do agree that it looks really nice in the pictures :).

@Joachim This beast is amazing!

December has been a hard month for me. I did not paint what I was planing to paint. So I decided to finish quickly my Hoffman who was sitting on my desk half painted for more than a year. Here it is:

With the Eternal Flame, he puts me at 17 soulstones.

Finished Mr Tannen and the Mysterious Effigy today bringing me to 41ss this month. My Malifaux goal for the year was to average at least 1 game a week and at least 1 finished model a week. In 2017 I played 85 games and painted 59 minis. I hope I can do as well or better in 2018. See y'all in the 2018 challenge!

Hello,

Just to get this feeling of accomplishment, here is a picture of all the minis I finished painting in 2017:

Here is my second Tengu for December.  This puts me at Aionus (12 SS) + 2 x Tengu (8) = 20 SS.

It looks like we only have three people that have yet to post their finished models: @Chou, @so_diogenes, and @klatschi. If you are one of these painters, let me know if I have missed something in updating the tracking sheet.  By the end of the day I will post a group update.

Well, I did not end up finishing my goal 13 models is December - just too dang busy with the holidaze and such. I did finish 8 of them! However, my time has been hijacked, and I haven't gotten around to taking proper pictures (early in the month, I did post my Guilty, Montressor, and Lady Ligeia - so those should be enough to fulfill my Master level). 

Completed with pictures (but not fancy pictures): 
Motressor 9SS, The Guilty 5SS, Lady Ligeia 4SS. Total of 18SS

Complete with pictures pending:
Winged plague x 2 (4SS each), Doc Mitchell, 3SS, Karina (5SS), Steam Trunk (3SS). Total of 19SS

January Grand Total of 37SS. 
I am happy to take the 18, since that is what made it per the deadline. Either way, I am still going to take pics of the remaining 5 models (hoping tonight, else Thurs at the earliest), but I am not going to hold you hostage to my shitty schedule ;) 

Thanks for running this @prof_bycid!

Sure thing, I will add it to the tracking sheet when you post.  I will just go ahead and post what is up there now for the total.

Actually got around to snapping pics last night. This will likely be my last post in the 2017 painting challenge threads as I move onto the 2018 ones. 
Final tally is 95 minis painted in 2017. This challenge was a very large part of reaching that number!
