I, Grotsmasha, challenge Brother Argent to step into the Arena with me, where we shall both build, paint, and base a Character on Foot. I shall bring forth a Dark Angel Company Captain 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.

 

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.

 

 

In the first incarnation of this event, Brother Argent challenged me to paint my Caestus conversion. Unfortunately, I didn't even finish building it, let alone paint it blush.png

 

So this time around I've challenged Brother Argent to a rematch, this time with a model that is built sweat.gif

 

He and I will be using this thread to share our progress and motivation with each other thumbsup.gif

Grotsmasha: Update 1

 

We'll be doing Character's on foot, at my suggestion, as I've got a model that I've been itching to start for a while. It's a large scale Space Marine purchased quite a few years ago, and sat forgotten in a box after 3 house moves. It's a garage kit sculpted by Donnell Belleza ( really had to dig to find him after so many years...), so here is my pledge pic,

As you can see, it was in a pretty poor state, half brush primed, and covered in dust. After a solid afternoon's work and several episodes of Archer later, we've got the majority of the green, and about 1/2 of the metallics. The shoulder pads, although not pictured, have been completed to the same level.

Cheers,

And so we begin...

 

So my pledge of a character on foot has kinda morphed as the sheer size of what Grot planned became apparent.  As it stands I am drawn over what to match this goliath with.  I am debating between:

 

- The Primaris Captain in Indomnitus Armour

- A Contempter Dread

- A Daemon Prince converted from Gulahvar, the Terror of Arnor

- A Tyranid Carnifex.

 

What are peoples thoughts on the matter?  Once I get a few thoughts I will get started as Grot has quite the head start...

Any of those would be a good choice, but for me, I'd love to see your take on a Carnifex or Contemptor :tu:

The Contemptor gets a vote from me, brother!

Great work so far, Grot. :tu:

You carry the Emperor's will as your torch, with it destroy the shadows.

Accept all challenges, no matter the odds.

Suffer not the Heretic to live.

Abhor the Typo.

In regards to the Contemptor it will be the B@C one.

I would recommend daemon prince, as it is also arguably a character on foot ;)

In us burns a fire for vengeance that will only be quenched when we stand triumphant over the smoldering ruins of Terra. Our laughter on that day will haunt their survivors till the end of time. We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

I'm not dead, and I like 8th better than 7th.

The Contemptor would probably be a good match for the detail level. Actually given the size of that marine and how plain it is I would think it's going to be pretty interesting to see how any detailing is done.
