Well hello there ladies and gents; welcome to September. We're getting this month started a little late, my apologies. I usually try to get the challenge up before the end of each month but, you know...stuff.

In my part of the world, the season is going to start changing soon. It will be getting colder, wetter, and darker. I know that may effect some folks, but we'll just do the best we can.

Next month, I'd like to do a special challenge. Let's brainstorm some ideas. Maybe we can come up with a bunch of ideas, I'll pick a few, then we can have a poll to decide the winner. I'll post a thread in the guild for October, and we can go from there. Maybe some of the other guild members will join us as well.

Okay...let's see those lists!

I'm going aggressive this month. I am going to be super dedicated and make it through these. That will mean picking up the brush even when I don't want to. Ultimately, it will allow me to play some fun army dudes.


Ultramarine - Hellblaster Squad

Ultramarine - Scout Squad

Space Wolf - Njal Stormcaller

Objective Markers

Although I don't plan on completing him, I will continue work on Mortarion...steady and careful progress:

Back with these ugly gals and lads again.
It's a stretch but I will try to finish the 'redshirt' zombies this month.

Steps:
Zenithal prime all of them
Better contrast (probably with backlining and/or a wash)
Add some colour with glazes, not too much
Basing (something simple!)
Additional details (glowing eyes, blood, etc)

So last month I did stick to my challenge of hobbying 5+ days a week. It didn't come without it's difficulties though. I kept adding more models to my list of must haves. Then I got distracted by a major overhaul of my modular terrain (still in progress), and also hit a bit of a wall with motivation to hobby at all. I did manage to get about half the team done, and everything ilse is on average 25% finished.

This month I'm gonna be a bit more realistic about the pace I work at and just make a list of priorities, finishing one after the other.
Finish the models I have ready for kill team:
1. Storm Guardian with Aeldari Blade - Finished 09/08/18
2. Storm Guardian with Chainsword -Finished 09/11/18
3. Defender Guardian with ammo crate - finished 09/25/18
4. Defender Guardian with viewfinder - finished 09/25/18
5. Dire Avenger 2 -Finished 09/11/18
6. Dire Avenger 4 -Finished 09/11/18
7. Storm Guardian with Fusion Gun A - Finished 09/15/18
8. Storm Guardian with Fusion Gun B - Finished 09/15/18
9. Musician
10. Heavy Weapons

BONUS! Work on my modular terrain rebuild:
1. Sand down the guide rails on the sticky bulkheads -Finished 09/04/18
2. Fix the stacking pegs I put in wrong the first time -Finished 09/05/18
3. Reglue and clamp the storage boxes - Finished 09/08/18
Here, I reach an impasse. Before I put in the effort to paint these, I'd like to add the bulkhead upgrade packs that were released recently. To have the bulkheads slide onto the platforms, I have to wax all the joints, which could make painting harder. Do I wax them now, and add more work for myself down the road when I paint the whole set? I'd get to use the terrain while I save up for all the upgrades, but it means putting this project of indefinitely.

Here's to more stars, and to finally getting a painting team to the table!

---UPDATE 09/10/18
I wanna play a few games on the terrain before I decide if the bulkheads need the upgrade pack. In the meantime, I've reached out to the designer about possible extras I could order.

I also just gained access to a Cricut Maker machine. I've got one project in the design phase, and can't wait to come up with more ways to use it for both Print and Play as well as modeling.

BONUS SOME MORE! Other stuff I can work on when I get distracted:
4. Wax terrain joints
5. Measure out and combine Tom Mason's FIMO mixture

---UPDATE 09/27/18
So I'm gonna break down and strip the paint off the musician and start over. I'll easily get the rest of my list done this month. It's strange to come into the end of the month without a huge number of untouched models staring at me.

In July I said I was going to focus on my Fantasy Orc army and not get distracted by shiny new things. Not long after Kill Team came out and I was overpowered by its shininess. Last month was spent putting together and painting the kill team terrain. This month I am going to focus on getting all the Space Marines done. Luckily they paint very fast.

DeathWatch
Overkill
Kill Team Expansion


Blood Angle Scouts



Ultra Marines from Black Reach
Tactical Space Marines
Terminators
Captain
Dread


Space Wolves
Reviers


Death Guard



Random Extra:
Old box of Tactical Marines that I am not sure what to do with.

Still can't decide how to paint them. I think Ill wait till I find some flamers and melta, and make them a Salamander squad for Kill Team.

My goal for this month is to get some more of my Mansions of Madness 2nd edition painted. I bought the last two expansions and didn't touch them for a few months. They looked very sad next to the rest of the painted minis, so I figured it was time they got some attention.

I'll probably tackle a few minis for Shadows of Brimstone and some various minis for Frostgrave as well.

We shall see...
