Qrabís oldhammer painting - Empire edition
« on: April 10, 2018, 11:16:42 PM »
Back in October of last year I signed myself up to participate in a painting challenge as motivation to paint more. The challenge consists of painting 1000 points of models in 200 point increments within a span of 6 months (with one mulligan month if needed). Thereís one one month left and My army is essentially done (didnít have to use my mulligan). Right now Iím working on some bonus models, but I figured I should post my progress here since this is the only one of the forums I used to frequent that still seems active. Here is a link to my contribution to the challenge. http://oldworldarmychallenge.blogspot.com/search/label/Qrab

Good to see you Qrab! I have never appreciated the Chaos archers as much as I do now with your great paintjob (except for the two on the right of the second rank - like you said they need a chemical bath - just dont look as polished as the rest for some reason. But otherwise great!

Great stuff Qrab. I love what you do with the bases.

I tried joining the Oldhammer Challenge but missed it by a day or two. I'm still dedicated to the challenge of painting 200pts a month and so far so good.

So the painting challenge ended in April with wrap up posts in May. I managed to paint something for each month of the challenge, so now have the start of a new army. You can read all about my experience here: http://oldworldarmychallenge.blogspot.com/search/label/Qrab.

So the second Old World Army Challenge started in January and this time around I plan on painting an army more in keeping with the focus of this forum - Empire! Hereís a link to my January contribution. Most of the models are from the 80s, with a couple from the mid 90s.

Great to see these here!

Very much thinking I should have got involved in this with my Brown Orcs, but hopefully there will be another challenge next year. Somewhere I've got a big box of old Nurgle Daemons...

Uuuhh... It's THAT set of figures!  :-)

They surely look ace, but maybe take a close-up in a more favourable light?

Go to the blog link. More pictures there.

I really like the weapon swaps - makes me think about some miniatures I have...
