  1. For background, the Dornian Heresy is an alternative heresy created by the members of the bolterandchainsword.com. The white scars fall to slaanesh (info here: https://dornianheresy.fandom.com/wiki/White_Scars). At this stage most of the army is in planning but I have bought most of the base parts for centaur daemon khan, butI am still waiting for it to come in. As far as further plans, the idea is to build a crusade list of true scale models that can double as a 30k army list as well. I am still playing with the crusade list (which is the pledge) but the pledge is currently 10 veteran marines

  2. *rubs hands with glee* Alrighty, updates, updates time! After much umm'ing and ahh'ing I decided to bite the bullet and start somewhere - I decided to do the building base seperately prior to painting the building. So, where to start? Well, how about a mixture of PVA, Water and Sand to generate some texture on the base. Then a blast of army painter uniform grey once dry: Then an airbrush coat of a darker grey than the grey I rattle-canned onto the base, followed by a drybrush of a lighter grey, then a lighter grey again and voila! One terrain base. In a sort of "you got this,

  3. Alrighty! More Updates! Although with a bit of doubling back. Turns out I was very unhappy with using expensive and hard to source paint, coupled with the agony of trying to airbrush a huge base with what feels like a mosquito's... *ahem* So I whined and moaned to my friends who have a background of sorts in this stuff and more years of hobby experience than me. Their solution? Try using spak-filla and housepaint. So I got some product recommendations, made a lunchtime sojurn to bunnings, watched a youtube tutorial, and had a go at rebasing my first building. Step one - flash the spak

  4. Because one is not enough... Just got my Ultimate Pledge for Marvel United. And I'm kidding myself if I try to say I'm not as excited for this as I am/was/remain for Song. So project #2: painting up the entire pledge (look, it's only 80-odd ogre-sized minis, it's not like I haven't done *that* before >cough< two weeks leading up to Cancon >cough<)

  8. At the request of a couple of members we've (well I've) decided to run beginner painting competitions in parallel with the regular monthly competitions. The plan at this stage is to run 3 of these throughout the year. As with the monthly comps there will be theme, selected by the winner of the previous competition. There may be a small prize on offer as well. The purpose of these competitions is to provide less confident painters with a space where they can submit a piece without feeling disheartened by the excellent work that many of this community are capable of. As such ther

  12. Haven't had a lot of progress this month. Life / mental health has gotten in the way a bit. Got the previous piece plus some greestuff and another mini diorama piece I'm working on. I'm aiming to get a bunch of moments from the trailer. Hoping to get more work done next month or even in the last few days of this month. I have also ordered a resin 3D printer, so I'm hoping to make a bunch of terrain features for the diorama šŸ™‚

  13. I will update the title once I work out whether this will be Harlequins or Altansar craftworld. I have been out of the hobby for quite a long time. I'll admit I have painted the odd mini here and there over the last 7/8 years but I could count the total on two hands. This project is two fold. 1) build a small force I can begin playing 40k with at my local gaming store and get to know people there (Irresistible force Qld) learn 40k again as I have not played since third edition I'd say. 2) paint.. this was always my favorite side of the hobby. I found it relaxing

  14. Almost finished a boss last night, tiny bit of works still to do on him plus his base - but as such my work for Feb is pretty much done. I'll post a good pick completely finished on Sunday.

  15. I'm throwing down. Minimum 1000 points either Harlequins or altansar aeldari. Nothing purchased yet, nothing painted. Been a long time out of the game and painting ECT so this year I'm planning on forcing myself to complete something so this is a great idea and using techniques I have never done before to get better at painting. I won't commit but I also would like to do a display board for this force.

  16. Seeing as I mentioned how much I love playing with them, how about some Guardians of the Galaxy? Firstly, here's Star Lord. I quite like him as a cheap leader with decent ranged damage and the ability to discard cards you can't or aren't using in exchange for rerolls. Plucky attitude letting you completely reroll a bad roll is also really handy. I felt like I had to paint him in MCU colours and that really set the tone for the whole team. Really enjoyedpainting him too, easily one of my favourite sculpts in this game. Next up, Drax. Admittedly I tend to overlook runn

  19. G'day all. Finally got to doing some colouring in - and these are the results. A lot of experimenting and having a good time, as well as knocking things out quickly, just to hammer to back log! Anyways, slowly posting to social channels and enjoying the process of starting all over again šŸ™‚ https://www.facebook.com/robustduck

  20. 5 Dreadscythe Harridans knocked out, not completely sold on the colours so might revisit when I receive another 5 in the next delivery but for now they will go into the cabinet. Might start with grey primer rather than black as they are much duller compared to the other guys but open to suggestions?

  21. Dusting this project off and getting back to work. Because I need something else to distract me from the terrain pledge I made for the annual hobby comp (other than the eldar I just painted, and box of sisters I have on the desk...)

  22. Twenty kroot, two hounds and one shaper done. I could find only two hounds - not enough for a unit so they may have to count as regular kroot until I can source some more that are not ridiculously priced.

  23. Been a little distracted by an upcoming 40k day that requires everything to be painted, but Have just about completed a nautilus to test colour scheme (may just put some runes somewhere). I actually quite like the simplicity of the man o war figures, and am hoping that a simple block colour scheme like this will look quite nice across the fleet...

  25. Now open for entries - remember this is self-assessed, so please feel free to enter if you haven't previously won a painting competition šŸ˜‰ (oh, and if you make money out of your painting it probably means you aren't a beginner any more either šŸ™‚ )

  26. Yup, sorry, been flat out with work and life, so completely forgot to update this. Looks like people would like to see the monthly hobby comp continue too. So We'll start again in March as I've left this one a bit late.

  27. Greetings Programs!! Welcome to my project of 2021, Bad Painting. I've always been interested in painting models, I've dabbled with it on and off again over the years but I've never been consistent with it. So the concept of Bad Painting was born and my journey began. Bad Painting also lets me dabble with the aspects of social media consulting and marketing (which I studied for a year but had no real opportunity to practice). My plan this year is to actually be consistent with my model painting. Stay tuned!! I'll have some updates later this week.

  29. I'm going to be doing a diorama based on the 9th edition reveal trailer. I'm looking at doing it in a 3x2 foot area and am looking to include the following 20ish battle sisters 20ish intercessors (mix of regular and assault) Marine captain Skorpekh lord Several skorpekh destroyers Scarab swarms 20-40 necron warriors. I have most of the models already. I also have foam to use as the base. Next plan is to figure out the rough layout for the diorama. *edit - should I win any cash prizes, all proceeds will be donated to Beyond Blue.

  30. Hi all, Newcomer to the forum, didn't even know of it until a Facebook post. I'm working on a couple of projects but I've got the first models of a new project coming in shortly. So I pledge to complete a crusade force of True Scale Dornian Heresy White Scars led by Daemon Khan (new project). Hopefully this will keep me motivated to actually complete them.

  31. I second the approval of the harridans, they look awesome. The duller colours lend them a sort of spectral, menacing effect.

  32. Thank you, yeah I'm pretty happy with how the lower half looks - nice and ghosty haha. Thinking I might bump up the contrast by doing a white gradient from the top while priming and then play with some colours, maybe lime green and orange instead of red and yellow.

  35. I was lucky enough to snag them on eBay. Will probably end up with a mix of Deimos and Mars pattern vehicles. Yep, the Saul model is awesome - will be picking him up at some point so I can run loyalists as well.

  39. And now, for some Wakandans. As limited as their selection may be, I really like this affiliation and hope they add M'baku at a later date so that Wakandans have a cheap, beefy character that can sponge up damage. Or W'kabi from the MCU? With his funky shield cloak? As a defensive support character? Anywho T'challa, The Black Panther I love this guy. Easily one of the best Avengers, I'll pick him over Thor almost any day and he's hecking tough if you take him as an ally in Web Warriors. But he's also got a decent leadership ability for Wakanda. A great sculpt and all-round

  40. Just an update on this, I will be setting up semi-regular beginner/intermediate painting comps that may overlap with the reglar monthly comps, I just need to put together the rules - the main differences between the beginner comps and the regular comps will be that there will be some eligibility rules, and they'll probably run over 6 weeks rather than monthly. As with the regular monthly comps these will be themed with the winner of the previous comp selecting the next theme. More information to come soon.

  48. Another Magos who will be the secondary HQ for the force. He will be leading a small contingent of troops that will fill compulsory slots. He was modelled after finding this amazing art piece by someone called Johan Grenier. https://www.artstation.com/artwork/EVznGK He stands a few heads taller than a Primaris. Closer to Daemon Prince in height I guess.
