February Hobby Challenges Update


February, as usual, has been going slowly, but I have still been making progress. On the Squaduary front, I've actually had to trim down a bit, as the Fiends are just too much of a pain for me to deal with right now. Progress goes well on the Seekers, tho, with the older ones built and just needing some basing work, and the newer ones wanting some gold, a little touch up on the black and purple, and a wash, then some grass powder.

The Seekers are also my entry for Fembruary, as my Escher gang is rather too far along to count, and I don't have anyone else suitable on deck at the moment.

Last, but definitely not least, Azazel's February Hobby Challenge was to finish a Model that had been started at least 6 months ago, and I have decided to finally buckle down and finish up my Keeper of Secrets conversion, for better or for worse. As you can see, I've done the basecoats and a wash already, and since then I've been all nervous about screwing things up while highlighting.

Next week, I will hopefully have all of these done (for "modeling complete" values of done for the Diaz Seekers). Until then, y'all have a good one, y'hear!

  1. I wouldn't put a deadline on the Keeper. Awesome models take as long as they take to paint. Don't rush it (but don't grind to a halt either!)

    1. Well, she does have a hard deadline of August 24, because I've locked in my list for the Ordo Fanaticus Club Challenge already. But even beyond that, I have gotten in some practice on what I need to do here with some Daemonettes and my Leviathan Kill Team for Shadow War, which uses the same colour scheme (except for the metallics) for exactly that reason. I'm honestly confident that I can do it, I'm just worrying out of habit. If I push myself, she'll get done. If I let it slide, she won't.

  2. Great work mate.
    You're doing so much better than I am with Squaduary. We're over the half way point and I'm still struggling to get any paint on my Escher gang.

    1. Thanks! I've actually been feeling like I've been moving pretty slowly myself. In the summer, I could knock those Seekers out in a week. Also, keep in mind that everything done on the Keeper in that pic was done months ago. For that one, it's the "before" shot.

    2. That's not cheating. That's the whole point of the challenge I'm using her in, to finish up something that's been left unfinished, that was started at least 6 months ago.
