I, Brother Argent, accept the challenge set to me by Grotsmasha, and step into the Arena, where we shall build, paint and base a Character on Foot. I shall bring forth either a small scale daemon prince or a Primaris Captain in Indomnitus armour before the deadline of August 31st, 2017. If they complete their challenge, eternal glory will be theirs. If they fail, they shall wear the badge of shame until the end of 018M02.

Welcome Andrew Christlieb and Dosjetka (what's up with everyone having ranks in their names all of a sudden?:huh:)!! 
 
Guys if you haven't found a challenge-partner yet, I suggest just going out, and PMing a frater that inspires you. Bring the challenge to them!
 
@ BCK: I mean this with O-legs. But it doens't matter, because I saw pics in your thread that showed me you already fixed it :tu:
 
@ Andrew Christlieb: Not sure what you mean there, as the rules are quite clear, no? If you found a mistake, please show me where, so I can fix it - as I don't see it! :tu:


Read the dates for Phase 2, it reads August 1st to July 31st, instead of August 1st to August 31st ;)

So it begins.

I, Brother Kortmer, challenge the unworthy Tangamarine to step into the Arena with me, where we shall both build, paint, and base a unit of infantry. I shall bring forth a 250-points Heralds of Ruin Kill Team of the Holy Inquisition, with paladins of the Red Hunters, before the deadline of August 31st, 2017. If they accept and complete the challenge, eternal glory will be theirs. If they accept and fail, they shall wear the badge of shame until the end of 018M02.

 

Pictures of the partly half-built squad, as discussed via PM, to follow in the next couple of days.

And here he is, held together with blu-tack.

7Oe7scO.jpg

Experimenting by using a Hail Caesar head on him. Will probably replace the lightning claw arm with Geigor Fellhand's one, if I can find the damned thing.


Looks like an excellent and characterful start! What backpack will you put on him? Interesting aggressive pose too, with Geigor Fell-Hand's arm, it'll certainly alter the model's silhouette a little with the arm swinging inwards.
With the bolter arm, have you thought about adding a scope on the top to add some ornateness or maybe cutting the hand and twisting it slightly to add to the dynamic pose of charging movement?

Excellent start all in all Ashenwhyte! I got myself a challenge indeed against you. Now I beed to get to work on mine, need to find my sprues, which are scattered in the flat I will soon be moving in. :lol:

Thanks, Cambrius! 

 

I have, however, decided to go for a different approach to the model, with a more calm and stately pose rather than the dynamic pose with Geigor Fellhand's legs. Which model do you prefer?

 

Before assembly:

Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

Not bad at all, a much more commanding pose with the static legs and inclusion of the axe (which is an ideal weapon for a Son of Horus to my knowledge).

 

One thing to maybe adjust on the pose is the head's direction. If you turned it to look in the direction his claw is pointing, it would look as if he is challenging an enemy combatant to a duel to prove his own worth and appease the Dark Gods/break the enemy's morale. The claw's the perfect shape for it.

 

And it's about time I made my pledge properly:

 

I, Brother Cambrius, accept the challenge set to me by  Ashenwhyte, and step into the Arena, where we shall build, paint and base a Character on Foot. I shall bring forth an Adeptus Astartes Captain of the Vanquishers' 4th 'Resilient' Company before the deadline of August 31st, 2017. If they complete their challenge, eternal glory will be theirs. If they fail, they shall wear the badge of shame until the end of 018M02.

 

And here are the bitz used to make Captain Elias Draeg, Master of the Fleet:

Bonus points for anyone who recognises where the helmet and left arm come from. 

 

He's now been base sprayed and I will deal with adding the base paints to him in the coming days/weeks. smile.png

He looks fantastic! The helmet and left arm are from the 25th anniversary miniature that resembles the original Rogue Trader box art. :) Banner is from Pedro Kantor. Where's the shoulder guard bit on the assembled mini?

Yep all correct! The shoulder guard is just a basic metal moulded Fist one I got ages ago. Didn't fit on its original model so it was removed and has been gathering dust in the bitz box with the 25th Anniversary arm and helmet. Now I realised looking at him base sprayed, that I gotta pull him apart at the waist to paint the cloak of office effectively and the back of the legs. Oops. wacko.png

 

Wouldn't be a challenge if it were easy, though. Dorn approves. ;)

I think I would like to take part in this, however despite having been here for a long time I don’t feel like I know any Frater well enough to challenge him or her as my forum attendance is variable.

 

As I am currently taking part in A tale of Hobbyists I am also somewhat time limited in hobby time but I expect that a side project would be nice so as to add some variance in what I am working on.

 

Earlier this year I found my old 2nd edition Necrons and decided that they could do with a better paint job then they had. I started to strip them (need to buy more acetone first though) and doing up test model/unit would be ideal.

 

If anybody would like to challenge me to a similar restoration of old models project that would be great.

Damnit this would have been ideal for me to resurrect Operation Reclamation. I recently received a box of my friends' old chapter of marines that deserve to be repaired, painted and reclaimed to glories anew.

You're spot on......that's a Devastator Plasma Cannon. He's standing on a Storm Raven flyer base, and is 11cm from toes to helmet top.

Here's my Ordo Malleus Inquisition and GK (actually Red Hunters, count-as GK, but whatever). Inquisitor and two veteran acolytes almost built, two Blu-Tacked GK in the background, the third's still on sprue - in picture. 

 

gallery_80057_10843_978023.jpg


The Inquisitor is magnetized on the base for easier transportation, daemon hammer arm magnetized as well. Backpack and head are still to be glued on, at the moment they're just Blu-Tacked. I'm feeling a bit unsure about his head. I don't seem to find an angle or orientation that 'feels right'? I'm wondering if that's telling me I should use a different head? - Thoughts?
