2020 Monthly Painting Challenge - March

Recommended Posts

@Caedrus Thanks for the feedback. I really like what you did with the burnt/burning wood on Wanyudo. Maybe just adding some more coal (black) between the glowing cracks would do the trick? Also very nice effective work on the Mourners. Will try to do something similar with those and I am a bit afraid of those almost black only models.

I did it! just..

I didn't do Miss Fire in the end, but did get a rail Golem done instead so still met my points pledge amount!

So this month, for a total of 18 points:

@Caedrus Thank you! That makes sense as it was done almost entirely with GW products.

Corpsewrack Mausoleum recipe: I made an air paint out of Incubi Darkness and undercoated everything with it. Then, I broke up the stones with Mechanicus Standard Grey, filled in random cracks with watery Mournfang Brown, and washed all the terrain with Agrax Earthshade.  I then drybrushed the buildings and fence posts with Thunderhawk Blue, followed by Fenrisian Grey, and finally Grey Seer (without cleaning the brush in-between). The metal bits were done with Warplock Bronze, washed with Agrax, and highlighted with a Bronze Scorpion drybrush. The oxide verdigris resembles Nilakh Oxide, but it was actually all done with Vallejo's Metallic Green Mecha Color. I finished the rooftops with a Bronze Scorpion drybrush.  The skulls were done quickly and haphazardly with a Grey Seer undercoat, washed with Skeleton Horde contrast paint, and drybrushed with Tyrant Skull (I did not catch them all 💀). All flowers and petals were quickly touched with Aethermatic Blue and Militarum Green contrast paints. Some rocks were covered in Wyldwood contrast. I did not want them to distract from the rest of the piece. Here is the final product:

I'm most pleased with the stones.  I'll count the terrain set as 50ss. Combined with the two Goryo and Fenton Brahms, that's a total of 81ss for the strange and long month of March.

Tomorrow is my birthday 🥳, but after that I'm planning to crack down and have a very productive April. More Warcry terrain, my last warband, the ASOIAF Lannister Army, and the Yan Lo crew for Malifaux.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

@Caedrus I love your Wanyudo. That would look outstanding on the gaming table. The Mourners' faces are terrifying. Very creative!

@Wintergloom Gorgeous saturated colors as always.

@TeaCrusader Awesome pieces. Especially love the Rail Golem's metal muscles and Carlos's tats.

@muraki I haven't seen many of the Nightmare Lucas set, but you made them very fun and colorful. Lucas's comic style NMM sword also turned out really well.

@Diddick Looks straight out of the rulebook. If I were Wyrd, I'd show that mini on Ama No Zako's store page. Just outstanding. Also, I played with Misaki in a Vassal game and Minako Rei popped out two Katashiros. She flipped a natural 12:tome for one, to my opponent's dismay. They are nasty.

@Rathnard Very pretty Stormsiren. She really stands out from the bugs. Love the bright blues. You continue to tempt me to start working on the Gibbering Horde.

@Purple Mist I'm happy that you're safe and healthy in Italy. The buildings look subtle and beautiful as always.

@naicigam Nice orks! I don't play 40k, but I've been tempted by Kill Team for a while.

@Boomstick That was one of my favorite games growing up. Very creative and it turned out well! Are you painting the whole crew like that?

@Viruk Thanks for the kind words. Not sure what you meant by green for the bases. Like OSL? I like the subtle purple in the gigants a lot. They look like they'd fit in with your Marcus crew. Are you tackling the rest of the Savage keyword next?

@lusciousmccabe Love to see the old 1.5 stuff and yours are appropriately brooding. I recently found the Dead Justice box, unassembled. Tempted to put them together and experiment.

@Harlekin You have some really nicely painted models, but they're kind of hard to see. Could you try cropping the pictures to make them bigger?

@zesty You clearly understand color theory quite well and are excellent at glazing. Is that a desaturated blue/green for the jeans? I'd love to see the rest of that crew in that style.

@Nikodemus Beautiful as always. The stippling effect works great with minis in motion like Minako. She's a beast in game.

@Pastori I ordered BrokenToad bases because of your minis. I opted for the ratcatcher sewer bases for my Lucius crew, didn't want to totally copy you. The NMM gold turned out beautifully, and you managed to make my least favorite Wyrd mini (Agent 46) look great. I still can't bring myself to order him, I have to figure out a suitable proxy. He's just so static and lame :( 

@Barbercat Striking greens! What's the plan for basing?

 

Really inspiring work this month from everybody. Can't wait to see what y'all show off in April.

I meant some extra green for the monument base to add a it more variety :) 
As for the keyword - I've already sold my Marcus crew, sticking to the Neverborn for the time being. And only as a collector, sadly I haven't played the game for more than a year now :(

Thanks! I'm not sure I'd call it colour theory, more like just throwing colours that I think will look cool together 😅. For the jeans I used VMC Dark Sea Blue, it's a lovely blue/green shade and will most definitely use it again on trousers! I have just started painting McCabe for next month's pledge so you definitely haven't seen the last of that style. Thank you for the kind words.

@Stranglelove thanks so much! Ocarina and Twilight Princess are my favorite Zeldas, visually. So after doing up my Hooded Rider as "what if Dark Link won and masqueraded as Link", I've been doing more of my Neverborn as things from Hyrule as I go. (Check back in the painting challenge posts or my album, Dreamer's a young Ganondorf, Chompy is Ganon in the shadows. Coppelius is an Octorock in a coat, Serena is Midna, and the Alps are a Dodongo, Lizafos, and Moblin, so far. I have plans for all other Puppets to be wearing different masks, and Collodi to wear Majora's, but at this point I may wait for (what I expect to be) it's inevitable return in the story to push through on that one, as it's currently a bit beyond my sculpting confidence level.

I would like to congratulate everyone on their consistently great work. I hope painting brings  you some joy during this difficult time. Best wishes to yôu and your loved ones ❤️

That rooster's colors are insane, the chest and the feathers are top notch, you nailed it 🎩also, the base is not painted right? is just the sand & pebbles? looks great too

@Stranglelove thanks for those kind words ^^.   And yeah, the katashiros are great bombs, the game i played (i was very unlucky with their flips though...) but almost always 3 attacks? yes plese :D But the best part of the game was my opponent's face when i summoned a jorogumo right next to his master 😈

@Caedrus March will have to be my  first mulligan I got some painting done but nothing finished.  Hopefully April will be a better month. Kudos to everyone for some amazing paint jobs.
