I have been making some progress on my PFTPG goals and figured I could throw up some WIP pics, I think at this point I have another groupd of French to do and that will be it. Ok I can't figure out how to link to pictures so here is a link to the album. http://www.chaoticorder.ca/gallery/album.php?album_id=28

Good luck all on accomplishing your goals!

I'm going to have to modify my goals a bit. With moving continents and stuff I am pretty short of time. Will get models built. Haha.

PostSubject: February Complete    Thu Feb 24, 2011 12:58 pm

May the Paint God smile down upon me for I have completed his appointed task. I finished two units of French 15mm infantry and finished converting my Dark Elf Blackguard and even started painting them a bit with help from my girlfriend.

[img][/img]
The two units on the right were done this February.

[img][/img]
Close Up

[img][/img]
Army shot, about 1/3 done of what I have already purchased.

[img][/img]
The Blackguard

[img][/img]
Here you can see my first attempt at Greenstuff, certainly room for improvement but I think it gets the point across. (they are wearing cloaks if you missed it ). Wink

Maybe next month I will try and paint something Death-squads related, it might depend on if my Flames of War order of Tiger Tanks shows up.

Sadly my goal is impossible! My shipment of snotling models was delayed by two weeks due to storms in the eastern US. Then after that they got the wrong parts in for me! Terrain should be done though. I will post those pictures once I get them ready.

Also I have been working a lot on my Southlands Mordheim variant project (any of you who are on Tom's Boring Forums knows how obsessed I seem to be on it) and start play testing today/tomorrow.

I will add to my goals for March an Ubuntu, Mu'au'ri and a Zamula model, in addition to working on my Snotlings if they ever come in... Just some test models for each to try to get a feel more for greenstuff and the look I want.

I only managed a couple of my goals for this month, but mostly because of the arrival of this...

Malachi 7lbs 8

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

On my other goals...
The Chaos Cultists squad is finished (no paint though) Nurgle CSM

I've based the Kommandos
And I've almost finished the Albino

Things I didn't get done: Painting (I always need a proper run at these things to get them done - whereas I can pick up bits to work on whenever). I still have today to go - so I might get a little closer today - but only if the weather's rubbish and I don't need to garden.

Highs: Malachi! Finishing the cultists - pleased with the modelling on them. Starting te rogue trader squad (not part f my goals - that's for next month. The paint job on the albino so far.

Lows: Not enough painting (or sleep!) and modelling distractions!

Cheers Laney cheers

It seems that I've run out of time.

I've finished magnetizing my Reavers(Pictures at the end of the week when I come back home). The Direwolf is half done, needs greenstuffing. Failed to paint a model.

Most of my time this month has gone helping my girlfriend move in with me and trying to get everything to work with the little space I have.

So positive and negative sides of this month:

Highs: Girlfriend moved in, got a couple of friends interested in Mordheim and played a series of games. I might get them interested in DeathSquads, but I need to finish a couple of squads for them to try out. I've got a icture of how my heroes for Deathsquads would look like.

Lows: Her stuff moved in. Lack of time for Deathsquads

Update due to my inability to follow written directions Rolling Eyes

Goals for Feb
Model up remaining 5 Models for My True Scale Deathwatch Marine Killteam: Done Mangaged to do 6 instead of 5.

Begin Working on ideas and conversions for Cultists/ Renegades- Ill pick a squad type depending on how the models come out: Modelled 2 Heretics (Still havent decided on Imperial Renegades or Cultists though)

Secondary/ Optional Goal 1.Contiunue work on my 15MM Ruined city (can prolly add this to every month as it is a long term goal to have a 20-30 building city. This will not be complete in 6 months.: Managed to make about 10 woods templates for the outskirts

Secondary/ Optional Goal 2.Continue work on 28MM 40K/ Gothic City- Again long term: Completed the wrecked rhino terrain piece

I have posted pics earlier in the thread of all item except the Woods templates (will post pics of the woods by end of week). I used various techniques as I accomplished a wide variety of goals. Next month I will try and take WIP pics as I go so I can document/ tutorial as I go for those who have asked.

Highs of the month: Holy crap I got it all done
Lows: I wanted to do more but real life and apathy kind of put a damper on that Just Kidding

Goals for March
Paint at Least 2 of the Deathwatch Team
Continue to work on IR/ Cultists Concepts- I have a few more ideas.
Assemble the Stromraven- Waiting on bits for detailing
Secondary/ Optional Goal 1.Contiunue work on my 15MM Ruined city (can prolly add this to every month as it is a long term goal to have a 20-30 building city. This will not be complete in 6 months.

I failed! I managed to buy far more than I managed to paint Embarassed , and only painted 2 last chancers. But in my defense we have managed to convert someone to death squads (hopefully more games), so a bit less painting time.



A random wounded guardsman

A few minis from my ork squad, almost entirely AOBR so no real room for conversions:



Boss and his mini-grot.



Weird boy and mini-grot (to me the runtherder looks more like a weird boy than an overlord)



Kommandos (gangsta gun idea shamelessly stolen from Colonel Prius)



Painboy



A ruined building (the gravel is to show the dangerous ground).

I only managed to paint 2 last chancers, hero and fingers (pics soon).

For next month:
1. Paint the two last chancers from last month
2. Clean all ork models
3. Paint 5 night goblin archers
4. Make some more terrain
5. Paint my alternate captain.

Kiwi, I like the injured guardsman. Very characterful.

Doomonyou-The Kill Team is looking great. I can't wait to see them painted up and towering over the competition.

Here are my (late) entries for this month. I only managed to get some modelling done as I moved continents and overestimated my free time. I managed to model 8 recruits and 1 enforcer for my Imperial renegades squad. The heavy weapon is supposed to be a heavy stubber. How does it look? Two of the recruits are made from Stormvermin bodies. I am not sure if I like them. They look a little too small next to the other recruits and I am not sure if they fit in. The man in the stocks is a heretic who will be herded in front of the squad.





Highs: Cadian bodies are really nice to work with.
Lows: Not enough time for modelling
Goals for next month:
-paint and base 8 renegades
-complete modelling on 8 orks

FINALLY! An Asian Commissar! Now I have seen it all. GREAT JOB on the black... it is a hard to paint color, because you have to shade it. Suggestion... Gold Trim the collar and coat... the model seems to have a trim (border) impression, so it should not be hard. Will make the hat to integrate with the uniform. Ohhh... and the base... GREAT! Simple, but VERY appropriate.

Thanks mordheimer, I wasn't trying to make him asian, but I'm happy with how he turned out.
Trim would be good, but I'm trying to keep them as similar to the originals as possible.
The base is just dirt and super glue, very cheap and it paints up nice.
