Love the clean and crisp work on those Death Watch Marines, is there a Plog or something for them?

 

 

One question, sorry if I am just too blind to find it. When exactly does the Dead Line end for this Month...not that I am cutting it close or something ph34r.png

The deadline is a loose 48hrs (plus however long the update takes) from the 1st of each month @ GMT+10 Timezone. It's a pretty relaxed fit off...

Well, July has not been a kind month. I have had hardly any time but I did manage to finish my Master of Signals and the tactical squad I was working on, just. Picture to follow tomorrow, and I’ll try to catch up with the tread as well then.

 

 

Edit: Picture, sorry for the delay, discovered that my batteries had gone flat so had to buy some new one first.

12 Months of Hobby July Summary


 

With July complete, we're officially over the halfway hump and have begun the journey home. The Challenge saw 13 returning Frater pledging for another round, with two newcomers joining Challenge this month. Of the 14 Frater who vowed, 13 managed to complete their vows, with most members completing additional models, thanks in no small part to the ETL. Juul saw us complete an impressive 64 models, three of which were vehicles. This leaves just 1 Frater who failed their pledge for July.


Lets award some badges,

My apologies guys, I've not had time to track where you are all up to with your ETL Vows/Badges. To be eligible for a Badge, You need to have Vowed here and completed your ETL Vow.

For Example: to earn the 5th Vow Badge, you need to have vowed 5 models here, each from a DIFFERENT ETL vow, and completed those models here, even if the ETL is not complete itself.

Although Papa Nurgle laid me low for two whole weeks, he did not prevent my July Completion, he did however severely lessen it, I'm scaping in with just one of the 7 Terminators pledged, the Assault Cannon.

For August I'll be completing the rest of the squad, and finishing my ETL Vow 5

The good news is, the criteria for the challenge is 1 model, regardless of how many you pledge. The two models posted above secured your Completion :tu:

Oshikai, your space wolves are looking great, Also like the grey grey as opposed to the blue grey armour on these.

Arkhanist, form what I can see that powers word looks great, don’t worry yourself about it.

The One True Zon, that was quick, and looking good as well. Where is the model from?

Sabadin, jaw dropping work on Abby!

Gederas, I can see that the arms have been Primarised, the rest I cannot tell. I assume he is taller now as well?

Blissful Brushes, well that is an undertaking, good luck!

Dwango, that bases on the Venomcrawler is so good, how did you do the water/ice effect?


Now for August, this is going to be a hard month as I still need to finish my ETL vow.

I, Trokair, embark on the 12 Months of Hobby Challenge, and for the month of August pledge to complete one Rapier Quad Mortar by month's end.

I have done 26 out of 90 modles from my ETL Vow, so if I cannot finish the rest, which does seem likly rigth now, then I will finish at least the Quad Mortars. Picture is from my ETL vow:

Dwango, that bases on the Venomcrawler is so good, how did you do the water/ice effect?

Hey thanks Trokair! It was my first attempt at an ice base. I followed this tutorial - https://youtu.be/_vDiP3bZmoM it's somewhere around the 3 hour mark. I just put my own spin on it by creating a well using mainly cork and some green stuff, before adding resin. I added slate and stones to try and simulate the space marine effect that's in the video too. The resin did seep out of the cork so it's definitely best to have a less porous edge to it.

You've definitely got your work cut out with your vow. I hope you make it! I really enjoy looking at your finished work!

I, Dwango , embark on the 12 Months of Hobby Challenge, and for the month of July/August pledge to complete a Chaos Fallen Lord by month's end.

I Dwango rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX on the side of the Chaos Space Marine Forum and vow to complete
1 fallen lord with a plasma pistol and powerfist.- 88
of total value 88 points
on or before September 1st, 2019. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-endgallery_141590_15192_181729.jpg
This will hopefully mean I have time to get a spawn or two in for my next vow!
