Painting Contest - Be a Spaceship Superstar! (ends Sept 7th, 2014)

Recommended Posts

I just realized, I have a Ral Partha mech dragon. If I don't paint him for this I deserve to have him bite off my toes!

 

Honestly, I don't believe I've ever seen the mech dragon painted.  This would be very cool if you did that.

 

 

It's great to see everyone so inspired!

You have no idea how relieved I am.  I was half convinced everyone would just go "Old sci-fi crap...boring."

In which case all these lovely figures would have eventually made it to the trade in table at ReaperCon (I WILL make it down there...eventually).

All this enthusiasm gives me hope that some of these will actually see paint, while I'm sure others will get happy homes in the "must have, might paint" boxes of others.

 

 

"Relieved?"  Jasper, we're metal fiends around here, despite many of us having large PVC and/or Plastic armies to work with.  That and you have some of the most impressive figures that I've never seen before.  This is a treasure trove for some of us, and truckload of awesome as well.  I keep coming back to the thread just to look at the first pictures and I'm having to put my eyes back in their sockets each time.

You don't happen to have any Celtos stuff in there do you? 

 

This sci-fi contest could mesh very nicely (for some people) with the next Beauty Pageant challenge, which is going to be Chronoscope.  :)

Jasper I have Akuma sitting in my painting queue right now! I need to get a base for him before I do more than undercoat him (there are a couple of Unicorns in the queue as well). :)

 

Started painting my Bones IMF minis and it looks like I'll have a bunch of Relic Knights soon as well and I do want to get back to the Sedition Wars stuff and...

If I get in on this I might go ahead and paint the IMEF team I already have based and primed...  and maybe some more bugs.  ::D:

Er. Do you know where that phrase comes from?

 

On a happier note, I just got a little srprue of three space marines from my local comics shop for Free Comics Day.

no clue at all. So I wiki'd it. I am now strongly tempted to change what I said, only that would cause more confusion

      So I was just about to check out my first Star Wars Legion game night at the lfgs when the whole apocalypse thing happened, so rather than painting my Imperials, I've been focusing on  getting my rebel scum assembled so that wife (who is "mostly" interested in playing) and I can learn to play here at home. With that complete I now need to get some more Imperials finished so we can actually play, since I'm not attaching bases to the Imperials until they are painted.
      As my wife actually agreed to play this weekend, that meant I needed a commander quick!  So I pulled up the FFG guide online to paint Vader and knocked out a decent tabletop in a couple of hours.
       

       
      Good enough and he already squeaked on a victory yesterday in our first game (he had one wound left).
      Now back to painting white armor to get more troopers ready.....sigh.

      Been a while since I posted a show-off....hopefully I'll be more productive painting this year. Of to a good start, I've already painted more than double my total for last year....
       
      I've started painting up some of the Star Wars Legion figures I've been picking up from my lfgs for the last half year or so. I started with a unit of Stormtroopers out of the starter box.  These were supposed to be a nice super quick tabletop paint job to get the year started. While they were a quick tabletop paint job, that quick ended up being spread over 2 months....hopefully I will get better at getting some painting in more often over the next couple of months.
       

      The whole unit.
       

      Standard troopers.
       

      Commander and specialists.
