This year's Monster March has been a breeze and the result is quite nice. Using Contrast Paints to paint this girl was super easy. I think I name her "Hilda". Some fluff about Hilda will feature later on this Blog. Keep Posted! In the end, converting the model was hugely rewarding. It even took more … Continue reading Monster March – finished!
Last week, I entered @swordmaster's Monter March '21 painting challenge and I scratch-built my goreblight model. This week I painted the beasty, and it's become lovely orgross, depending on how one looks at it. The result is more than satisfactionary, leaving just the base to be done. I painted the model using contrast paints; it … Continue reading Monster March ’21 #2 & Jarvis
Yearly, Swordmaster hosts a painting challenge, called #MonsterMarch. The idea is to paint a monster (or anything monstrous) in the space of a month. I've been part of MonsterMarch 3 and MonsterMarch 4 doing a dragon and a phoenix respectively. Once again, thanks for hosting this one, mate! This year, the MonsterMarch challenge coincides with … Continue reading mo-mo-mo-moooooonster March!
Achivement unlocked! For the 2nd time in a row, I managed to beat the # Monster March challenge! The Phoenix is finished in all her resplendant glory! While not my best paint per-sé, (some of the blend lines are a bit shabby), I really take the bright red-over-yellow colour scheme and she looks magnificent. The … Continue reading # Monster March '20 Finished
The Phoenix is getting quite close to being finished. Here's a couple of WIP pictures: As far as things go; it's needs decent basing, touching up the details and a photoshoot! This is all scheduled for next week!
Thephoenix I pledged for Monster March is getting a bit more paint. The result is progressing nicely, and while I'm quite anxious about the final result, the first layers really look nice. While progress is delayed a bit by real-life, I'm nice on track to finish in time. As the Phoenix has to dry out … Continue reading Monster March ’20 #2 and other hobby stuff
This is just a short hobby update. The Phoenix I pledged for Swordmaster's Monster March has just gotten its first slabs of paint. Nothing fancy, but enough to warrant a (short) update. I -frankly- adore the model. It's both gorgeous and huge. Below the phoenix compared to a (already large sized" "28mm" Citadel model. Painting … Continue reading Monster March ’20 #1
Last year, I particpated in Swordsmaster's Monster March. This year, I completely forgot to pledge something! But that can be solved quickly! So here's my pledge for Monster March 20! As I recently completed a general on winged beast (here full post) this was not something I could pledge. Instead, I have an ambitious project … Continue reading Holey Moley, it’s Monster March already
On the very last day of March, my #MonsterMarch entry was finished. For those who don't know what I've been up to last month, there's several updates here, here, here and here. Here's the overview and swordmaster's startpage too. Pictures above and below. And what a ride it was.... as predicted, there wasn't much hobby … Continue reading Monster March # 5 – finished!
As posted on here before, hobby time was at a premium last weeks. Still, I managed to keep part of an evening for painting, so I could continue with Monster March's dragon. It's nearly finished, as you can see above! Finally, the wings are completely done, I'm really happy about how highlights give the wings … Continue reading MonsterMarch #4, nearly done
