Squaduary 2022 rolls on! Time to see what glorious progress has been made with the piles of grey out there.
Squaduary runs through the month of February and aims to help people get a new squad built and painted. Throughout the month you pledge, build and paint a set of troops for your army. The aim is to get some of your grey plastic pile and turn them into painted troops on the battlefield. Some models may have been partially built, some may have been base coated, but it is up to you. These minis could be from Warhammer 40K, Age of Sigmar, Bolt Action or anything else. Don’t feel it has to be Game Workshop only.
This is the sixth year of Squaduary, the final posts for each year are linked below:
So let’s see what people have been up to:
Painting another lil’ guy.
Far from finished, but I’m feeling better about this one.

“Started putting paint to plastic this week, some construction of the bikes but mainly concentrated on the bases getting them completed and then the riders main bodies. The Sergeant took a while with his fancy cloak and tunic – his legs were from a 3rd party Librarian on Bike and the torso adapted from a Dark Vengeance Ravenwing biker.”
“You can’t rush these things. Navel gazing and contemplating the universe make us better human beings. At a rough estimate I’d say I was about 25% done. With just under 50% of Squaduary elapsed.”
“I pledged five Custodes models and got started on them with a gusto during week one. It all starts with the red and gold…”
I cracked on with the flames and blocking in the bone for the Outriders. A lot of the details that are due to be painted metallic are now done as well. The tires remain a bit of an issue for me, do I dry-brush some purple on them to represent the dust from the ground? Or should I leave them be. Tricky. Any thoughts people?
I got the jump on assembly but here’s my Celestian Sacristans with colour blocked in.
Some lovely progress from all involved and we are only half way there. Can we keep the #Squaduary train running?
