It is still July, right? :)

Having totally failed at the challenge, and then realising I was able to go to Bring Out Your Lead after all, I needed to get my warband painted in a hurry.

I substituted one of the beastmen (old Citadel broo) for another simpler one, and also the marauder for a not-stripped one. This is the marauder (actually a chaos warrior, of course) before, with genuine original 1980s paint job for the archeogaming contingent out there. The rather bad coloured armour inking means he needed a bit of a refresh -

I also dropped the goblins (which were to have been part of a second warband, but their day will come when I get into O&G painting mode).

I'm happiest with how the marauder came out. The dwarf's cloak looks a bit heavy handed in the flesh, but actually fine on the table. The beastmen I'm not totally happy with - slugman's flesh area is a bit bland, and the broo has lots of issues from a bad choice of fur colour to poor shading and various other stuff. There is an incredibly well painted version of him that I saw today on display at the Foundry, almost enough to make me hang up the brushes :(

I'm also not totally happy with the way the bases turn out, they need some more ground clutter, but who knows how long it will be before I revisit that.

Lots more practice needed!

Well done - the most important thing is to get painting and as with all things practice makes perfect. It might e a bit late to enter Augusts Challenge at this point so maybe prepare something for the next one. Hope you had a good time at Foundry.

Really like the Marauder & dwarf, especially the before and after :D I'm having similar problems with fur - I've found one good combination but having difficulty getting a second one.

Congrats everyone on finishing their challenges!

I'm just shamefacedly shuffling in to say the Norse still aren't done! :oops:

I've had a few other things on my plate but do plan on finishing them off - I'll let you know when I do...

If you don't finish this challenge soon you'll be accused of threadomancy :D Well done on finishing the 8 of them. I'm looking forward to seeing the musician.

Looking very spiffy Phreedh - I've missed your style of brushwork and scenery :mrgreen:
