2015 First Quarter project log for everyone

Postby Angelwing » Thu Jan 01, 2015 5:32 pm

Realised I was about to post some new stuff, and the thread was 2014 third quarter, so a bit out of date.

Tyranid 'spawn of cyptus' limited edition plastic broodlord. Also I've included a couple of pictures showing the size creep in the broodlord models. Left to right: 1st ed genestealer patriarch, 3rd ed metal, 5th ed space hulk plastic, 7th ed shield of baal plastic.

Lined up they look like the evolution of the same creature as it matures.

OK, this quarter I'm aiming to paint a ton of Mars Attacks stuff and more of my Ogre army.

This quarter I aim to finish my deadzone enforcers and marauders. Which is about twice the number of minis I painted in 2014!

Working on some random bits and pieces - I've actually managed to finish something!

The cracked aquila from the Honoured Imperium set.

And with some minis on to show the size of the thing

Nope, been filling in the gaps in that thing, need to sand the filler now.

Then it will get some primer on it, but I am working (very slowly) on the contents of the Deathstorm box and a Sanguinary priest my girlfriend got me for Christmas.

I'm now intending on not buying anything except for limited editions and books until I have at the very least finished the deathstorm box and the orks from the Sanctus Reach box.

I think I'm going to keep quarter 1 fairly low key with the hope of hitting my targets. With that in mind I'll start the year with Forge worlds Horus and Kharn on the painting desk, and aim to get my four xwing phantoms repainted (really like the cloak effect a lot of people are adding to their ships :) )

If I finish these off, Im sure there's a lot more we can add :)

A project of a different kind: A phototrip to capture comet lovejoy. First problem was lack of preparation, I had to leave for the site with no notice, in order to get about 30 mins or so of viewing before cloud cover came over. So I just fiddled with shutter speeds and let the camera do everything else. Second issue was the bright moon, causing too much light pollution. None the less, I'm pleased with the results, and will go back out in a couple of weeks when the moon is absent.
1 - close crop of comet love joy
2 - wide view, comet love joy dead centre
3 - Orions sword, with nebula
4 - Orions belt and sword
5 - that very bright moon!

Well here are my February Painteds.

Not sure what is wrong with me, another 27 figures done this year, I have already painted more than I have bought!

Onwards, more 1672 Pike and Shotte:

Image

Image

Then 7 more members of Project Dwarf (GW LOTR ones)

Image

Image

Finally 10 High Elves, again GW to complete the unit of these:

Image

Image

Last but not least, another Rapier Witch, albeit with Owl not Vulture.

Image

Last of all a quick wip shot of a 28mm Normandy Church...

Looks great! I really must get back into some painting. These plastic zoanthropes have been sat here looking at me for weeks.

Finished the statue from the Honoured Imperium set. Just got the little bit of shattered ruins still to do alongside my tablescapes set.
