  2. I am going a slightly different route with the "ugly" topic. Rather than a bad sculpt I am going with a sculpt that is "supposed" to be ugly....... I cannot remember how I even got this model. I think he was hidden in a job lot I picked up cheap and didn't even know he was a Forgeworld Herald initially. He is missing a couple of small pieces so that is why I have the Powerfist and Helmet (going to pinch a couple of cables and horns).

  3. So, almost finished. Base is completely undone though, so, erm, yay? Got the final highlights on the purple and yellow then it's on to the base.

  4. I've always hated this mini. The massive wierd shoulders, spiral breastplates, and a hat and staff that scream Nagash. I've painted one many years ago and lost it during a house move, tracked one down to complete the collection and ignored it since.

  5. Ok so I have completed my entry for this month. Very happy with how it has turned out, especially the base. Introducing the Herald of Nurgle Drog'Lur, known to the Grey Knights and Inquisition as the White Worm........

  8. There did used to be an issue with some FW resin casts back in the early days. Lack of pressure casting/vacuum degassing in FW production meant bubble voids in larger products (which in most places mandated drilling the voids to ensure they weren't smuggling something in them). Improper cure times and badly mixed resins also meant the resin could still be outgassing in transit, and it used to emit compounds the USA's chem sniffers took to be Semtex. Customs weren't under any requirement to repair any damage they do to your models, either.

  12. I have completed the assembly of my unit of Bull Centaurs. I had only intended a unit of 5 to be joined by the Taur'uk, but it turns out I somehow ended up with 6 instead. So I tweaked the army list to include a command group (which I hadn't intended to originally). But this left me having to figure out how to convert these lovely models to represent a Musician, Standard Bearer and Champion (or as the Chaos Dwarfs call it a Ba'hal). Now there are 3 different sculpts for the Bull Centaurs so that works well, one of each will become one of the command group. This will help the unit to b

  13. Oh god, I really suck at updating this don't I... Truth is, I haven't done much painting the last few months. Between being flat out at work and getting married, real life has been getting in the way. But I made myself take some time this weekend to paint, and once again got out the airbrush to try my hand at some Yank tanks. The airbrushing made for a lovely base coat, and then I went to town detailing and weathering. I'm really trying to push myself to try new techniques and learn from those madmen who create amazing scale minis, and apply similar techniques to my little wargaming dudes

  14. This unit has been on the go for months and only needed the chapter symbols to be finished. It will make a nice addition to Inquisitor Dile’s growing collection of marines.

  16. Thought I'd come back to this. Overall my experience has made me decide to order more paint from them. Going to do some sisters of battle in mother of pearl armour. The body is a grape pearlescent mica, blended to the top with an amethyst pearl. Shitty photos sorry.

  17. Ahahahaha. That would be amusing. "excuse me sir, did you declare this large quantity of plasticrack" "umm, I have to declare this" "It's a highly trafficked substance, tightly controlled" "but, but...it's just plastic" "sir, please don't make a scene" "they are just toy soldiers!!" "You're under arrest sir, your goods are to be confiscated *coughformyownarmycough*." *individual is zip tied and lead away while officer takes all the GW stuff"

  18. The latest unit for Inquisitor Dile is from the Praetors of Orpheus chapter. The Praetors are said to be second only to the mechanicum in their knowledge of all things, well, mechanical . Our campaign rules give a bonus to units with advanced technology. Tasetus has his techmarines and engineers to fill that role but a Dile has not had anything like this until now. The real reason I painted them up is that I like the colour scheme and had ten of the relevant shoulder pads.

  20. I'm working on a few different projects and commissions atm, figured I should try and remember to share them! Here's a stinky bastard from a Death Guard army I'm working on (bloody photos showing me things I Need To Fix, ugh): And a Malifaux mini as part of a smaller commission, which I'm having a lot of fun with: Let me know what you think! πŸ˜„

  21. Korocite and I are discussing having a year long comp (in addition to the monthly comps we are having) . The idea is that people will say what their annual project will be and you have the year to finish it. There will be some rewards for the best project which are TBD. In terms of the project, it can be whatever you want. An army, a table worth of terrain, a diorama or some other large project. Do people have any suggestions or questions about this as we work on developing the rules / structure for it?

  22. Updates of some description each month sounds good. Even if its just acknowledging that nothing got done during the previous month is enough to let everyone know that participants are still living up to that name. I think we are mostly in agreement that it will not be restricted to any gaming system. I'm leaning towards a terrain project that will be for a 40k campaign that Big and I are playing. This should be good motivation to get it done.

  23. Noone has started anything on Epic Armageeddon yet, so I have initiated one. I will start with a basic intro of myself. I currently live in the Campbelltown NSW area. I restarted collectin Epic after selling it all off decades ago when they changed from square to strip bases. In 2010 started up again, and I have a decent collection of armies in my modest collection. Vraaksian Renegades (16,000 points), Dark Eldar (12,000 points), Eldar 3 separate armies each of about 5000 - 6000 points (Biel-Tan, Sian-Hann, Iyanden), Orks - 4 possible armies based on my collection could

  24. This month's theme is "ugly". Be it an ugly sculpt, mini or even something like a heavily weathered vehicle. Rules: - Post a pic with the date of the model(s) you will paint this month - post a completed pic before the 28th of November - have fun!

  27. Just an alternative spin (which is probably not what you are going for with this challenge). But if you were seeking something to run across the year, could it be as simple as a β€œleague table” which collates the percentage of votes participants accrue from the monthly challenges amd at the end of the year a winner is crowned? Obviously if you participate every month you would increase your chances of getting percentage points. But it would be possible for a dominant person to only participate occasionally and still have a chance of winning? β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” My second take is

  28. You probably want people to declare a minimum amount of stuff to be "completed" as their target when signing up. Then anything above and beyond can be extra. I'd also suggest for people doing armies specifically to aim for a "standard" size game (1000/1500 pts 40k, 700-800 pts MESBG, 50/75 pts WMH, etc), as opposed to doing 1 character and 1 unit and calling the challenge done. Also, is this only going to be for new projects, or can people submit a project they've already started? I have two in mind that i could do, both armies. How much time do you want to give people to join

  29. It has been a busy week or so for me, but have been plugging along slowly. I have the Bull Centaurs (six in total) assembled, however, I want to convert one to be a Standard Bearer, one to be a Musician and one to be the unit Champion, so I need to dig through my bits box to see what I can come up with. My wife hit on what I thought was a great idea for the unit champion and the standard bearer will likely be pretty easy. The musician is probably going to be a bit of trouble as they are such large models I will struggle to find an instrument that works. May need to scratchbuild a horn

  30. Thank you, this looks helpful. I might go back and have a play with some old photos to see if I can improve on them.

  31. Good effort, especially when you are not feeling the motivation. Can't say that I agree that it fits into the "Ugly" category - it's too well painted and I quite like the old school mini.

  33. I was first inspired (aka obsessed) with Napoleonic's from a certain Antony Brett-James Waterloo - the hundred days book, that I stumbled across from the local library many, many moons ago. So I was first spoilt with all the glorious later war uniforms esp all the fancy-pants Hussars but also Scots grey and even a soft spot for the Prussian Landwehr! So I learnt Napoleonic history in reverse chronological order hence the earlier uniforms looked a little less fancy (think about what you wore 20 years ago compared to now) after all those later war uniforms. But that is all personal preference th

  35. Recently we played The Battle of Teugen-Hausen using Blucher rules! The scenario was sourced from the oldmeldrumwargamsgroup site, they have a lot of well prepared scenario on their site! A map of the battlefield to help when reading the below... Dave and George commanded the Austrians and Maurice and I the French. Victory would go to the side that occupied Teugen and Hausen at the end of the game or broke the opposition. The main French advanced quickly occupying Teugen and heading toward Hausen, their light cavalry covering their left flank. The A

  37. There was a 19 player event in Canberra yesterday, lots of the Sydney guys drove down for it. So, it's certainly not dead. I gather they're moving some content to this website instead of the FB groups: https://www.auswmh.com/

  38. Decided this would look cool, even if not effective. Air elementals and caster left to go. Kicked the whole lot of for last month's hobby comp (maybe if I wasn't doing all the greater elementals I would have finished?)

  41. I never had Dark Elves or Dark Eldar. I have regular eldar. I have high elves. I had wood elves until 1995, when they were stolen off my front porch during a house move. This also made me put aside WHFB until 6th edition (only had that one army for it, but by 3rd ed 40k, 3 armies for it).

  43. Hey all. With this month's hobby comp coming to a close soon, I wanted to give people advance warning for December's comp (as opposed to November's). With December's comp it will be a "paint what you want" theme and can include works that are already partly done. Since December is going to be a busy time for a lot of people with family commitments etc. This one will just be a freebie to get people painting and finishing stuff off, with no prize / getting to choose the next theme. The winner of November's comp will pick the theme for January's comp.

  45. I'm always amazed by anyone who paints this well at a small scale. I struggle with small detail at 28mm even. These look great, really bring out the character of the sculpts.
