July Hobby comp - Monster(s)!

Recommended Posts

The theme for this month's hobby comp is monster(s)!  It is up to you how to interpret that though (you could paint a "close combat monster" for example).

 

- Post a pic of the model(s) you plan on painting alongside a piece of paper with the date.

- Entries close on the 28th to allow time for voting

- users get to vote on their favourite piece after the 28th

- winner gets to choose the theme for the next month's competition

- winner also receives a $20 voucher for Laser Shark Designs

So, I have 2 pieces I want to work on this month. The Zoat will be my main focus with Fabius Bile my "bonus" attempt if I can get the zoat finished early enough.

Monster huh?

 

Oh dear.  I just thought of a couple of 15+ year old projects that never moved that maybe could fit in here.  The wife may have to divorce me if it looks like I'm capable of completing projects.

Ooh, something I can do.
(Usually these comps have a theme for a model I finished LAST month ... Or I just don't have anything on hand to do.).
A Wraithlord for my Eldar army.  I bought a grab bag of sprues at Cancon 2020 and only just got around to going through them.  The wraithguard don't count - I had them done and based yesterday.  The Wraithlord, however, I only started assembling this morning.  ).

Nice theme. I normally paint up the grunts for an army before moving onto the more interesting units, but given this months theme, I’m going straight for a frost Giant from blood rage.

Taking a leaf out of Krefey's book, I've gone with a Fallout Deathclaw as my main attempt, with a Reaper Bones Avatar of Sokar as my bonus model. 

 

Let's see if I can actually get painting done this month!

In good news, not divorced. Wife was amazed when I pulled this out of storage. 

 

The Catapult is there as a scale reference. This is a monster. It's Vinyl, so not long after I originally built it it suffered some damage in summer due to overheating, and spent about 10 years on a shed shelf, so it's filthy.

Timberwolf you inner sphere barbarian! 

Unfortunately they're vinyl, not resin. Hollow PITA.

That’s a very nice combination of colours you have going on there. 

Thanks.  It's all inks over a zenithal base coat at this stage.  Will be switching to acrylics to  do the rest.

Stopped working on Eldar for a few minutes. 

Cleaned, reassembled, ready to start repairs. 

 

Figured I'd use some GW models as a size ref as many people wouldnt have handled the bt model I used earlier.

True, but I'm aiming for a Tabletop + standard for this one - I wouldn't want to make it too easy for you to win two in a row.

I'm just using these monthly comps as motivation to paint 😛  I don't care who wins 🙂

I may resemble this remark - it's been working really well so far (at least this month I'll get something finished...well, finished enough)

Has a facetious font/format been nominated yet?

If not I'll nominate purple simply because that is what's used on another forum I frequent so I don't get confused 😛

I'm not sure I could handle all the text on this forum being purple.
