2020 Monthly Painting Challenge - January

Recommended Posts

@Caedrus nah, just the base was airbrushed. I just haven't used my airbrush for more than priming, so even that little bit was a big step for me.  The mini was painted but I had a lot of trouble getting good green coverage so it ended up being a bit lighter than I wanted. Same with the skin tone, so while it's not a great photo it's prolly partially me.

Won't be my emissary. Gave it to a friend at the shop I go to since I had 2 of them and wanted to paint it + try adding a street lamp to his hand. He said he's gonna use it for an Archie or emissary in a Seamus crew... That said he didnt know I was painting / giving it to him, so who knows what he'll do with it. Ha.

Have you ever tried using Tamiya X22 on translucents?

Yes, in fact that's exactly what I've used here. It provides a solid transparent basecoat to work on - highly recommend it.

Here's my completed January pledge, really happy with how the whole crew came together. Also this is my first fully painted Malifaux crew. Thanks for the inspiration and thanks to @Stranglelove for helping with the pictures.

That level of detail is something to aspire to, tiny tats, individual scales - including the diamond pattern broken down on the scale level, not to mention the colour transitions and everything combined... beautiful work.

If this were a Jack Nicholson movie, this would be As Good As It Gets. 1x Shikome for 7ss. Painted to tournament legal standard as everything has a coat of paint or two, and there are (more than) 3 colours. Had some good luck with the GW/Citadel Contrast Paints. Need to buy some Micro Art Studio Cobblestone bases (in resin), just found an online retail supplier in Australia today with some in stock. :)

Hello, I completed large parte of my pledge for current month: 3 scenic components that can be arranged to get a large ruined building and the 2 ruined city fountains I was going after for some past months.

In the pics I spawned around some old Malifaux minis painded in past years to give you a better idea of the size of the scenics I pledged.

Hope you liked it all. I please @Caedrus to estimate how many ss my pledge could be worth.

@Caedrus thanks so much! They were a blast to paint (and figure out the color schemes, expanding my RWBY theme for Thunders to the villains as well).

I managed to finish a couple more right in time for the month! Behold, both dragons (as Grimm, keeping with the RWBY theme). Had a blast with the custom work on the Emissary (wings and tail fins are press moulds of the wings I used on the Dawn Serpent and some for a Black Blood Shaman. They're a little rough around the edges from trying to make them thicker to be a bit tougher. Also filled in the holes where his lower legs should be for more of a sea serpent look.) Also the first time I've used any water effect for waves, so please, pour your tips and criticisms over me :)

So, with the 19ss from these two, that should bring me to 39ss for the month.

Getting the last few stones in on the last day.  To complete this month I finished a huckster:

As much as I love the new m3e models, man do they got a lot of junk going on, which makes em a bit of a hassle to paint.  Guess I'll have to soldier on, ha.

@Caedrus that's 16 (10 + 6) for me, just sneaking by, hopefully next month is a bit better.

Always a pleasure to re-read through this thread towards end of the month.

@Magnus Digging the colourful bunch. Lovely crew.

@Boomstick Such whimsical crew. A Joy to watch you expand it.

@Pastori Classy whites. Cool investigators.

@lusciousmccabe Ice ice baby!👍

@Caedrus Good stuff all around. Almost scaring me into not painting my own Envy:P

@Viruk Interesting skintone on Rasputina. Solid Viruk-quality yet again for the whole crew.

@Harlekin You may be slow, but I can see where the time is spent. Rocking it!

@Monkeyfist In my experience "not my best" often translates into "pretty good". Not a bad place to be in:)Digging the investigator.

@Lukkimus Inspirational snakeman!

And big thanks to everyone I failed to mention too, for participating. 1 done (or almost), 11 more to go. Here's to many more painted minis this year🍻

@Nikodemus did you manage to finish the yasunori?  i have one assembled myself, but it's such a nice mini that's kinda intimidating to paint, and your color approach was great, i'd really like to se more of it

Fun non-painterly tidbit, composer of Chrono Trigger's soundtrack (SNES era rpg) is named Yasunori. It's a pretty good soundtrack if you like SNES sounds.

Cool! I've played original Chrono Trigger, good memories :) and I love buzzling-tinking SNES sounds! Final Fantasy VI soundtrack is my absolute favourite (as is the game itself).

Awesome work, everyone! Very encouraging!

These are my 6 points for January! I wanted to have all three painted, but I am still working on the other two bases, so I will post them next month (not for the challenge!).
