#Squaduary 2018 is over!
Here we are at the Squaduary 2018 final post! So lets break down the numbers before we jump into the models.
I honestly lost count. There was a lot of posts across sites, Twitter and Instagram. Which was great to see so many people taking part, the only problem being I kept missing some of the posts. My deepest apologies to those I missed. We had a high concentration of Games Workshop this time it seems, but ah well. We got a lot of models out onto the battlefield and painted.
“So I finally got my Sisters of Battle across the finish line. Not quite happy with the scheme and it didn’t end up as clean as I wanted it to look.”
“aaaand we’re done. Fairly pleased with how these dudes have turned out.”
Baz from Stepping Between Games
“This is my final psot for the event. Still need to finish the bases but really happy with my squatling snipers. Learnt how to make my own chestnut wash in the process , which over mechanicus grey primer and then dry brushed with skrag brown makes an awesome aged leather effect. The thunderhawk blue gives a great contrast colour for the under jackets and I’m super chuffed with the hair and skin. For years I’ve struggled with skin but think I’ve finally cracked a combination of bone colours and washes that works really well.”
“And this is as far as I will get tonight. Blue, white and silver done. Not as finished as I wanted, but given I ended up with 4 days to do them in…”
Hayden from Stepping Between Games
“I’m unlikely to get enough time to finish the last model, but I’m happy enough with these guys now they’re based.”
Pluckylad from Stepping Between Games
“All finished, and off to join Recon Company Theta Omega 7.”
Pluckylass from Stepping Between Games
“Hurrah! Finished and based and ready to go! Now all I need is the other 50-odd models and I’m ready to go.”
“I want to get some pictures up here proving I completed the painting challenges before I go to sleep tonight. Finished without a lot of time to spare!”
“We’ve reached the end of Squaduary 2018 and I’m pleased to announce that I’ve completed my pledge of three Kataphron Destroyers for my Adeptus Mechanicus force.”
“Well, I’m finally finished. The challenge was to paint a squad in February, and I pledged 10 40k Skaven troops (for use as Skitarii Vanguard) with a Dominus as the extra stretch goal. I’ve absolutely smashed my original target. This year, I’m delivering 10 Vanguard and the Dominus, plus the Doom-Crawler (Onager) and an additional 5 man Arquebus unit.”
“I completed 20 genestealers. I am very happy with these. They will become my go to genestealers while my old ones will be used as needed.”
“I am glad to report my Squaduary 2018 pledge is complete, based and sealed. I had a blast doing these guys, sometimes a lack of great detail akin to modern plastics is refreshing and helps keep a good pace!”
“Finishing them off a few days ago, after all of the Plaguebearers. For these, I can definitely credit Squaduary for motivating me to get them done. So my total Squaduary models come to 27 Plaguebearers, plus 9 wolves. 36 models, so not too shabby.”
“I might be failing with my Squadruary pledge but I’ve finally managed to paint up the leader of my Escher gang and so have completed my Fembruary Challenge! The entire model was something of an experiment (probably not the best idea to start with my leader but impetuousness is a Slaaneshi trait after all). I’m really pleased with how she’s turned out and while there are a couple of things I’d like to spend more time on, I have another nine gang members to get through!”
“As Squaduary draws to a close I thought it only appropriate to show off my final project for it, a bunch of Tree Revenant conversions, built and painted.
Iactually converted these a while ago, but with one thing and another I never got the chance to post the pics before I started painting them. Well seeing as I have the painted pics ready now, I thought I would combine the two posts into one and show you both together :)”
“#Squaduary entry complete! Huzzah! And with plenty of time to spare.
Here’s my complete VII Legion Astartes, Imperial Fists, Rapier Quad Bolter Battery.”
“Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. And sometimes it looks better in the morning. I could probably tinker with them more but I’m calling my Squaduary done. I decided to be a devilishly cool hipster and make up my own purple colour, not using a scheme in the Citadel Paint App.”
“We made it! The end of the month is here and I’ve managed to get my pledge completed in a timely manner. I’m thrilled to be able to say I made my Squaduary goals. I’m not sure what I’ll do next with these guys… I’ve got the Blessed Primarch to lead them, as well as the Custodes and Sisters of Silence from Burning of Prospero to tag along with him. I’d say that will make for some good Imperial Soup once I get it all finished.”
“A load of finished models, that’s what! Well, not actually finished, but only requiring minimal work and work that I want to do all together for the army, so they’re finished for now.”
