I’m in just about the same situation as Ambrousis.  I am working almost 70 hours this week.  I did get one zombie wolf mostly done but i won’t have any more time to paint before Labor Day.

To all, I'll just keep banging away on the sets i have until anyone posts what the next two are.  


My plan is to start diving into some of these bigger monstrosities.  The more i get into painting the more i realize I'm not a fan of painting heroes.  Strange?  It's like the thing that drew me to the hobby, yet i find them the least fun.  


As things around the country keep escalating, I'm feeling less confident we'll be keeping things open much longer.  With flu season coming and covid going off the charts again, it might be we'll all hunker down to get some painting in soon.  I hope that is not the case, though. 


My goals this season: 

Halloween diorama

Try testing some paints on a warhammer kit

Prep xmas gifts


That's going to keep me nice and entertained between Paint Club and work.  Thankfully no more travel for a while. 


Good luck on your stuff, Team.  I hope we can all participate more in months ahead.

My plan for this Sunday is to paint my wolf and unseen servant, and then pick the next two 😆


I'll probably grab something from the featured monster series, and maybe Murkillor. I've been kinda eyeing him as next. 


I'm off all of next week, so if everything goes as planned, I'll be painting quite a bit. 

I also want to get some Halloween painting done, and the core set has some real cool minis I want to get some paint on.

Over the weekend, I hung out with my Dungeon Master and he made a request for me to paint up all my undead/zombies from bones 5 to use in our D&D campaign. Anyone have objections to painting a couple undead models for the next round?  I'll be trying to paint all the undead as soon as possible regardless of which minis get selected for the group(Im totally fine with whatever y'all want to do), but ill be starting with these in the meantime:

I like it!  Skellies it is!  Huzzah!


Dated and added to the paint club sheet.  Although, the numbers don't add up to the right thing.  Oh well, winging it.

Those should work out nicely for me.  My brother got me the GW death rattle skeletons for my birthday and I am finally done with working endless overtime. 

This is where I had to abandoned my undead wolf.  I will return to it and get some blood on those ribs and do some black lining around the mouth and put some rosy flesh tone in the inside of the ears.FFB11797-8DA0-4299-9474-A8BFBB4F0107.thumb.jpeg.fff97e02864f79643692862c78c2a1ae.jpegFEDD094C-8C13-482A-A58E-49554023C3D7.thumb.jpeg.d15e5491b56c8718da35461042c8c81f.jpeg7B010CEA-BDDF-4394-BD6E-19A7D9D389E3.thumb.jpeg.89bad6cb273c9676b6941a0decbb0ae2.jpeg

It's good to see everyone's pics of their wips and completed minis! I'm about done with my unseen servant, and just need to dry brush and pick out some details on the wolves.


But, in the ongoing saga of this year not being kind to me health-wise, I had to get an emergency root canal today because of a tooth that flared up earlier in the week, and no part of that has been pleasant. I'm out for the count today, and likely tomorrow, but hopefully I can get those two done, and start on the skellies soon after that.

I fixed the numbers. I thiught I'd already done that, but in all my wisdom, I fixed it in my local copy. They should be good in the shared sheet now.

I'm waiting on my skeletons to dry...


But since I'm waiting i did these. 






And this guy




I love how fast you're knocking these out, and at a fairly consistent level too! Nice work.

      Since i didn't have my paints with me while on break, i was hungry to get back to it.  I guess i wasn't as full of turkey and stuffing as i thought. 

      As I'm posting this, i saw on his left leg that he's got an unpainted seal.  Dang it! 
      I made the bands on the blade smaller. 
      Added more metal details. 
      Added more accent color. 
      Tested two new paint color (silver grey, red. And German Grey). Each did great. 
      His backpack gave me some trouble.  I was gluing it on, but the post didn't push in and then it broke off.  Ended up doing some surgery back the but it's on.

      Got another one in this week.  I'm on a roll!
      Still doing my work on these marines looking for a color combo I really like.  I completed Red, Blue, Green, and Black.  I've got 2 more color schemes to test, which are Grey and White.  We'll see in the coming days how much energy I've got for them.
      This one came out pretty good. 

      I still need to base and touch up his sword with more color, but he's pretty much done outside of that.  Enough for me to post in WIP.
      The process was pretty good and I'm learning that these sub-assemblies help a TON in getting to those insanely hard to reach spots.  I took pictures of what the sub assembly looks like just to what my method was and hopefully helps others struggling.

      Finished the Paint job on another marine.  I'll need to come up with a cool base.  I planned out this time black, red, yellow, blue colors. 
      Here's the first one of this set up. 

      Here's the purebred. 
      Give me feedback.  If you'd like this black background let me know.

      Just keep on plugging away at these bones 5 set.  So so so much to paint still. 
      Here we go.  The necromancer.

      I am going to say i hate bone white from vallejo.  That stuff has terrible coverage.  Chalky.   And thinning it makes it take forever to dry.  Not a fan.  Every time i is it i think, "i should mark this bottle with an x."  
      I wanted the cape to be darker red, but it still works.  I was nearly going to paint it purple and make her clothes red, but didn't.  She looks way way way too colorful for a necromancer, but it's what it is now.

      Got the first set of 5 done.  I bought 5 Santas (one was in my bones 5), 4 Mrs. Claus, 4 Christmas mouselings.   I'm preparing a holiday ornament and diorama for friends to give them. 
      Santa is now complete, but still need to get him on his base with Mrs. Claus.

      Battle Report! 
      I painted my first santa with a black primer.   It took about 4 or 5 layers to get red to actually show and not look washed out.  I just happened across a youtube video where Paintman Journeying was talking about how laying pink under red will help coverage and saturation.   Was worth a try for how many red clothes characters i was about to do. 
      I then took all of them to base coat with airbrush. And not only that, it gave me a great way to go through more of the BCA pink i have 5 bottles of.   Finally i can use it on more things!   Warning for others: BCA pink has weird coverage. It's very very very very chalky. I hadn't noticed it on my small parts i use to paint it on like tongues or trinkets, but on big areas i really noticed.  
      The assembly like setup on these worked great. Painted in this order:
      Coat, pants, hat first. 
      Santa's gift bag (different red)  next. 
      Cream trims next. 
      Teddy bear.
      Washes on face and bear. 
      Gloves, boots, and belt. 
      Packages and trim. 
      So far so good.
