Got an initial coat of paint on all four sides of building, and timber framing completed for two sides and the roof framing.  Progress! :icon_cool:

Since I'm currently on parental leave until March, I'm joining :engel:

Painting goal for January and next month is to finish the forge world mammoth and its marauder crew. It really is huge.

The seated lord and banners have to wait until I can undercoat them, probably in spring.

Shadespyre, wow, that ghost, it's quite a feat to manage to make her look that translucent, with just different shades of blue.
The only good thing about 7th ed heads is that they look particularly inbred and superstitious which is perfect for Stirlanders

Those undead are great, Shadey. The ghost is indeed really well painted, but I love the skellie on the end kind of leering over his shield!

Finished the timber framing for the last two sides of the small mdf building.

It'll be time to construct soon, and put the finishing touches on the painting too.

I have some of those archers. They bring back so many memories of gaming of old.

Meanwhile, my cathedral 'film-set' interior is coming on alright, slowed only by the need to produce some new figures for a council of war story to precede the next mahoosive campaign battle.

I was given descriptions by the Portomaggioran player, which I will quote here.

'Alessio' (Lord Alessio Falconi, the player's own character and ruler of his realm) 'is large with blonde hair. Politician and charming but his main aim is the increase in power of his city.'

I gave two options - modifying an existing figure or using a newly made one.

The player chose the painted figure. Good choice (he's my W-E avatar!)

'Hakim' (Wizard Lord, creator of the Coloussus) 'is an Arab with black tash and goatee, I use the paymasters model. Light wizard uses a lot of words but says little not to fond of priests in general.'

'Ned' (Condottiere Ned Black) 'is another large man with black hair and carries a blue and white Eagle. Wears gold armour. Empire born tends to be direct but a skilled general.'

'Hans' (Artillerist, Hans Weidmuller) 'is normal size with brown hair and wears the colours of portimaggo (yellow and red) quiet and a little deaf in his left ear.'

'Marcus' (Tilean Noble, Marcus Portelli) 'is an older man balding with a sharp temper and bad rep outside of his cavalry units who adore him.'

So I came up with these ...



I didn't like Marcus, however (who I had scraped some hair off to make him balding) and asked the player if he could be completely bald so that I could use this figure (my favourite of all these).



The player loved it.

I also needed a dismounted, chatting version of young Lord Silvano of Pavona.



And a similar one of the halfling Lord of Poliena. I scoured the web for an hour seeing if I could find one. I couldn't. So I scoured my bits boxes and, perhaps bizarrely, decided to quickly convert a bloodbowl figure ...


Here are the Portomaggiorans completed:



And here are the others:



'General' Marsilio has been left with hardly any command by his employer, all foot soldiers, which is why he has dismounted and chosen to use the massive axe in battle as a suitably hefty infantry weapon. The 'captain' is actually just a unit champion, but he had obviously been a soldier for sometime, probably in Empire employ, and was happy to put the money into looking the part. The halfling featured in an earlier story mounted on a pony and armoured like a Bretonnian knight. Here you can see he has decided if he is to serve in a besieging force (an army of 6000 pts with no horse soldiers - the horse have been sent away for strategic reasons) then he might as well go the whole hog and equip himself like a foot soldier.

Perhaps confusingly, the Portomaggioran player and the Pavonan player both have Empire armies in blue and white. I tried therefore to make a slightly different shade of blue for Lord Silvano. Also, Verezzo's colours are blue and yellow, which when combined with the yellow and red of the actual city of Portomaggiore (the blue and white is Lord Alessio Falconi's family livery), leads to even more potential confusion. Ah well.

I'll post the cathedral interiors soon, although I might put the link to the story with the pics in when it is done.

I washed the sides of the small mdf building this weekend.  And started a side project, soap and watered some 40 Pulp gaming minis for priming next.  I've been determining what to do next with my Late Persian army for Impetus too, although still deciding.

Looks like Padre has been creating more minis! :icon_wink:

Iíve completed my targets for this month, although I did cheat a little. I couldnít enter the storeís Legion of Legend last year but had started some units which I had since finished. Iíve entered the Daughters of Om as my leader and first unit as a start for this yearís competition. Iíve also completed my Space Marine Hero who is waiting to be taken to the store at the weekend. As an addition my friend has received three of his Space Marines.

During the month I have been working on my Legion entries but didnít want to have to rush them, hence the cop-out entries. I have three units part painted but only need to enter two of them in February. I still have 12 Space Marines in various stages of build and paint work.

Target for February:-
2 units to be completed and entered on 9th and 23rd Feb.

Any Marine completed will be a bonus.

My goal changed for the month, I needed to swap the 5 scouts to an oldschool bolter & crew part way through the month. Got them all done. They are up on my entry at the OWAC site: https://oldworldarmychallenge.blogspot.com/2019/01/zerotwentythrees-january-sea-elves-200.html

February's goal will, once again, coincide with my monthly OWAC entry: 5 scouts (for real this time) and a chariot.

Add 5 bog zombies to that... Going to do those so I can try to get a game or two of Rangers of Shadow Deep in.

I finished two space marines, and got halfway done a bunch of other stuff.

So I completed two marines at least!

My goal for February is to finish 3 stormcast and paint two nighthaunt, plus two beastmen.
