Tordeck, is that a GSC Abarant stop sign? Anyway, good job and good luck with the May vow, is that the old metal demon prince I spy?

Yes it is lol. Thank you. Resin with a plastic arm and some random metal wings.

I'm exhausted from painting almost non-stop since yesterday mid-afternoon and frustrated I can't share any progress here. :pinch:

 

4/7 of the smaller models are done, the three remaining ones are about 50% done, and the one larger model is about 85% done. Only a few hours until I have to drop my brushes until Thursday so I hope I get everything completed in the next 2-3 hours!

Yup, it's the witch hunter with the back hood thingy shaved off and replaced with a bit from Neave Blacktalon and a different head from the RH Icariates / Seraphim proxies. The Archeotech pistol is something from HH but I forget the source, pure bits bin find.

The forth month of the Challenge saw an excellent return rate, with 19 Frater continuing for another month. These brave Frater were joined by 1 newcomer, bringing a total of 20 Frater pledging for April. Of the 20 Frater, 15 managed to complete their pledges, with several members completing additional models. April saw 78 models completed, including a scenery piece, and 2x vehicles!! This leaves 5 Frater who failed their pledge for April. We also see the introduction of a new Badge this month, awarded for Completing a previous month's failed pledge.

Arkhanist, nice spindle drones, what technique did you use for the top shell/carapace, it looks great.
 

 

Couple of things didn't work out, so I'll simplify to what you can see smile.png

 

Painted the legs and carapace separately.

 

For the carapace, gloss black primer, then airbrushed multiple thin layers of thinned scale 75 'cobalt alchemy' for the base coat. Mixed about 50/50 with S75 'speed metal' for airbrush highlight, and then very light touch highlight with pure speed metal on the wings. Gloss varnish for protection, then a clay wash with flory models 'dark dirt'. This goes on grimy looking, but unlike acrylics is reactivated with water so I wiped it off all the surfaces with a damp cotton bud - sort of reverse pin washing. I left it a little dirtier to add age/weathering. Then a satin varnish to lock it in, and lens with red and orange gloss paint.

 

The legs are turbodork dark net (colour change paint) with a bit of nuln oil gloss around the joints. I wanted to show this off a bit as it doesn't show up in the photo but I think looks rather swish IRL.

I'm not going to be able to finish my April vow in time. I'm just too burnt out right now. I will see about finishing it before the ETL starts, but til then I'm going to be working on some gunpla to relax.


A challenge is a challenge till it is beaten, then it is a victory.
The greater the challenge the greater the victory, so I challenge the impossible.

Note that since I did the conversion and took the picture the bases did not work out, so for the moment the Ambot is baseless and I will need to figure something else out for it.

A metal banner? That is old school. Well played, sir.

 

Having knocked off the abominant early in April, I've spent the rest of the month painting these:

 

genestealers 2

 

They weren't pledged, because I had no idea if I'd get anything done over Easter, but in the end, they almost beat the April deadline anyway. In May, I'm dropping down a generation or two to the acolytes, who currently look like this:

 

acolyte sprue
 
I, Rogue, pledge to continue my 12 Months of Hobby Challenge by completing five acolytes before month's end.

So far this year: patriarch, primus, iconward, abominant, five acolytes, clamavus, five aberrants, eight genestealers and three leman russ tanks painted; 147 marines and a stormtalon based

I feel like my May vow should be to find time to at least pick up a brush at this rate. But I will be stubborn and revow Abaddon because I want him done.
