Octobers Painting Challenge with Halloween Bonus

Welcome to the 3rd edition of the Almost Monthly Oldhammer Painting Challenge. For any newcomers this is where we all set our selves a challenge to paint a unit (of any size) within the next Oldhammer month (which seem to be about 6 weeks long).

This time round I figured we'd add a bit of a theme to it. Given that Halloween is at the end of October how about trying to tie in with that and paint up something spooky or icky! This doesn't have to be undead and it isn't compulsory so don't be worried if you don't have anything suitable.

Take the week to decide what you are doing and try and have the minis undercoated and based for the weekend.

Octobers Offerings

Aiteal - Hobgoblin Shaman & Summoned Skeletons
Asslessman - Giant werewolf / Malal Greater Demon
Basement Dweller - Nagash! and his buddy Skippy the necromancer
Blue in VT - Some Brets we've never seen before - honest

Erny - late medieval/early renaissance citadel fighters

Grumdril - Orc Archers & a scary Chaos Warrior
Hetz - skelly cavalry from the Skeleton Army box, maybe some Nightmare Legion
Just John - Halflings, Treemen & Wights
MBH - 6 trolls, 5 centaurs and some classic chaos warriors
Mutantdale - 44 x Night Horrors
Orlygg - Nightmare Legion
Tancrede - 8 x 80s bretonnian foot knights
Tartar Sauce - Orcses, lovely Orcses
Thansants - Skeleton Army & War machines
Ti Pouchon - 2 spooooky giant monsters

This week is the fonal rush for the August challenge so here is the entry for October's. I'll stick with something easier than a whole unit and will bring this baby :
What could be better for a Halloween themed entry than a giant werewolf / Malal Greater Demon ?

Going to go for a bit of a scattergun approach this month as well as adding in an extra for Guy Fawkes night. Pictures coming on the weekend, but I intend to paint:

3 Epic Shadowswords
4 Epic Chaos Dreadnoughts
4 stands of skeletal Epic Chaos Androids (for that Halloween theme)

Defo up for this. Need to paint some stuff up for the GROG 'Night of the living lead' event in October.
Not sure just what I need yet ... but something spooky.

So I will paint and base some 80s bretonnian foot knights (planned 8, but it depends of current commission work).
Starting pic of undercoated minis before the end of the week !

Looking good so far - I don't think Orlygg will mind if you enter the Nightmare Legion as well Chico. Anyway as MD says you'll have that painted before the rest of us have even undercoated out entries :D
