Managed to get one of my 4 Veterans finished, along with basecoats and washes on the other 3. Should be done by Monday with all of them.

I think he has a nice Rogue Trader-style feel to him, don't you? Only thing that technically is unfinished is the basing, as it needs to dry so I can do a wash of Nuln over it.

If build pledges are a thing - I pledge a single quad launcher, a 5 man legion command squad, a 6 man Blackshield Marauder squad plus 3 myrmidon destructors. 

Off to Warhammer World this weekend, so might get a second pledge of extra builds by then.

All in preparation for ETL.

 

Considering how much else I had to assemble, wish I hadn't pledged the Marauders. Had most of the bitz, but was hoping to pick the legs up at Salute this year. Couldn't, but have them ordered and on route (hope they turn up in time lol).

I'm going to go completely mental and join the challenge for April. Instead of my usual Alpha Legion, I hereby pledge to paint one Thanatar for my Loyalist Ordo Reductor. I started last night and have 9 days left of April to complete. Let's see how I get on.

Well, my bitz came a bit earlier than I thought.

6 man Chymeriae marauder squad with nuncio vox and flamer. Modelled to be Thunder Warriors rather than normal marines. They do work out a bit taller, especially on the bases. 

Looking forward to EtL to get a chance to paint them.

Don't know what's happened this week but I've 

been in the zone (painting wise!)

Finished my pledges with time to spare for a change!

Here's my Command Landraider (fit for a Primarch)

Then there's the Sicaran I finished last week

Well, tommorrow's Friday, which means no classes for me, so I'll be painting the stuff I need to. Also need to pick up some more glue for needed repairs, but hopefully I'll have my oathed models finished by Monday morning.

Hm, I still havn't really posted any photos... Ah well, it's not like I'm in charge of the challenge or anything! I'll make sure to sort something!

Everyone else, good job good job! I need to get some of those mini-daemons that you posted noigrim!

 

Stuff's been updated and all that!

Back to my Magos-build!

Les progress than I'd have liked. Not much to see at the moment, but I'm currently layering up the metal superstructure with a combination of washes, drybrushes and will probably finish off with some oils.

My lack of progress is because I got distracted assembling some more Alphas...

Fate walks, and those who stand in her way will burn. Let the earth tremble and men cry out as all they are, were, and could have been is turned to ash.

Please excuse the...interesting...waist. Currently only blu-tacced together, waiting for a large enough magnet. 

 

Edit. Lady-scion Aesina is also done, but currently sealed inside, and the knights a fair few miles away. If you need I can drag out a picture of her before I glued her in from my storage, or in a couple of days I can take another picture of the actual inside.

So, what I finished and some WIPs (i.e stuff almost finished...)

 

Medusa number 2, the build pledge. Here pictured with the medusa from last month and a Demolisher cannon armed tank I threw together.

gallery_84024_11617_530015.jpg

Triaros built and prepped for the ETL, sans primer.
gallery_84024_11617_372628.jpg

 

I almost finished the Archmagos on Abeyant build. (Dare you all to identify ALL the kits in that build ;) )

gallery_84024_11617_948920.jpg

 

And this is how far I got with the painted Medusa.

And with this... I hereby close the Challenge for April!

Challenge stats for April:
 

Vows

Traitors 10 : 12 Loyalists
 

Points Total

Traitors 132,5 : 124,75 Loyalists
 

Percentage completion

Traitors 46% : 52% Loyalists

 

A resounding Loyalist Victory!

The challenge moves on into May, so far the Loyalists keep the Traitors on the rope. Need to shape up, the ETL IS NIGH! 

A lot of build-pledges this month which accounts for the lower-than-average points total. Someone really needs to step up to keep Noigrim from painting that much!

Lovely paintjobs, lovely community amongst the Fraters.
Well, on to a new month, a new challenge and let’s continue this year in style.
 

Traitors
 

3rd – MrFlutterPie – Death Guard – 6pts
 

2nd – Aeternas – The Night Knight – 10 pts
 

1st Warmaster’s Champion – Noigrim – Variety of Evil Stuff – 32pts

 

Loyalists
 

3rd – Zujara – Raven Guard – 10,5pts
 

2nd – Jud Cotrell – Ultramarines – 12 pts
 

1st – Emperor’s Champion: Jerichus  – Dark Angels (Sure they’re not traitors?) – 25,5pts
