I made an oopsie and finished my Gorkanaut before vowing it! Oh well, still got two things to complete for ETL, so I'll vow one of them.

I, toaae, embark on the 12 Months of Hobby Challenge, and for the month of August pledge to complete a Dakkajet by month's end.

 

 

And it is complete:

 

Dakkajet Finished

Thanks! I took the tip from OrcPainterNerd on youtube on how to use chipping medium. This was my first test of doing two layers of it, which gives multiple layers of weathering. I'm very happy with out it came out.

12 Months of Hobby August Summary


 

With August complete, we see the Conclusion of the ETL for 2019, and the AoD Loyalists claiming the Dominus Execitus. As expected, the ETL really showed just how quickly we can paint, given the right circumstances. August saw 14 returning Frater pledging for another round, of the 14 Frater who vowed, 12 managed to complete their vows, with most members completing additional models, thanks in no small part to the ETL. The final month of the ETL saw us complete a staggering xxx models. This leaves just 2 Frater who failed their pledges for August.


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 (at least) 5 models here, each from a DIFFERENT ETL vow, and completed those models here, even if the ETL is not complete itself.

Just because the ETL is over doesn't mean you get to slack off.....now, get back to your paint stations msn-wink.gif

September pledge time. I, Rogue, vow to finish the bases on these 30 marines before the end of September, or else I won't, but then I'll still be doing them in October and a solid month of doing bases would be a worse nightmare than any online consequences. Also, it's really not going to take that long (he says with the confident swagger of a man who completed five whole models during the ETL...)

I'd like to join this to keep my painting motivation up, if that's OK.

Is there anyway I can pledge Sharky Mcsharkface as a 'slow burn' model? It's not an immediate priority as I have so much more to complete and it's just a 'counts as' landspeeder at the moment. It needs a lot of modelling work to de-sea-elf it and on the cogitator and the saddle. Not at the end of this year either..

The confident swagger was justified! 30 tactical marines of various types, based.

 

tactical specialists

 

Next up, the definitely-going-to-be-slower process of stripping and repainting this lot from battenburg-themed guardsmen into slightly-less-early-nineties-looking brood brothers. 

 

guard

 

Ten of the worst looking got dunked and scrubbed earlier this afternoon (original GW paint just falls off in meths, and as it turns out, so do all the arms and heads). The plan is to rebuild them with a few neophyte parts, just enough to give them a link to the Cult without going overboard. Hopefully.

Rogue, old school indeed, good luck with the stripping and rebuilding.

Longjohnsilver, welcome aboard, is the shark a Attack Bike or a Land Speeder?


My local gaming group is thinking of getting into Necromunda and I will do a Van Saar gang using the Skitarii kit and whatever I can source from my bits box. I will be busy building them this month but I suspect that I will not get as far as painting them this month, so that will have to wait until next month.

Instead I am going to do some paint scheme test for my Stormcast/Space Wolf conversion project. So one or more of these “Wolfs” will be my vow for this month.

I, Trokair , embark on the 12 Months of Hobby Challenge, and for the month of September pledge to complete one or more Fenrisian Wolves/Cyberwolves by month's end.

OmiIT2th.jpg

 

Bit of a tidy up for the start of this month. Have some Death Company that need the bases tweaking to the evolved style of my Primaris, re-doing the gems properly, and just jazzing them up a touch. Similarly, I painted the Redemptor in about 8 hours (half of it waiting for paint to dry, it felt like!) on the last ETL day to squeak him in and complete my vow. He's actually in pretty decent nick and certainly tabletop ready, but I think I overdid the weathering a bit so want to clean him up a little, fix the fist, add a few extra details etc.

 

Assuming that goes fairly quickly, I'll have to decide on returning to Blackstone Fortress, starting on my newly arrived series 2 Terminator Heroes, or something different! Kinda glad ETL is over so I can ease up a bit.

What qualifies the "stubborn" badge again?


Completing a vow after the month has closed. In your case Jol, you didn't vow for July but posted the Completion with your August Vow. I'm assuming the ETL got in the way and you forgot to post the vow :tu:

  

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 (at least) 5 models here, each from a DIFFERENT ETL vow, and completed those models here, even if the ETL is not complete itself.

Just because the ETL is over doesn't mean you get to slack off.....now, get back to your paint stations ;)

Okay, good. So I've gotten all five of those then :lol:
 
Now, before I forget:
 
I, Gederas, embark on the 12 Months of Hobby Challenge, and for the month of September pledge to complete Konrad Curze, Primarch of the VIII Legion by month's end.

Yup, got my second Primarch, he came in on Wednesday and I've spent the last few days cleaning him up and assembling. My current issue:
If I should paint him metallic blue or not..... Guys what do you think? :lol:

Metallic blue for sure...

Everyone I've spoken to has said metallic.

 

So it looks like Curze is gonna be rocking some nice metallic blue armour.
