It looks like Squad: March had a decent uptake last month, and we’ve had quite a few people complete the challenge. Yeah, I know a lot of them were things that people were going to be painting anyway, but any motivation to help get the models done is kind of the point, and it’s always fun to have a round-up where people get to see each others’ work.
We start this month’s showcase with Mark Morin‘s effort. He’s completed an entire platoon of OOP models, complete with power armoured support and a walker! 40 figures in all. Mark’s post chronicles the entire creation of these long-lost models, from packet, to planning, to completion. Well worth checking out.
Despite a bit of a struggle, Just Needs Varnish managed to complete the last figures for his Paraguayan Infantry Battalion in time, thanks in part to the rather lovely UK weather of the moment. I do understand though, that the figures still need varnish.
Steinberg Shed Space painted a ton of troops for his Steam Wars Martian force. Sanwar Slave Infantry, Martian Cephalopods with their robotic retainers, and more besides. I highly recommend checking out his post with his full completed army-so-far shots, here.
Thomas, from High Times on the Eastern Fringe completed a unit of Thousand Sons Rubric Marines, achieving a very nice, and appropriately cold feeling to them.
My own stuff was highlighted in my last post, so I’ll just drop the group shot here at the end.
As always with these things, it’s very easy to accidentally miss someone’s post, so if I missed your unit post, or one of your units, please prompt me in the comments (with a link!) and I’ll edit this post ASAP! Linking to the initial challenge post with your posts always makes thing easier for me – I can just follow the pingbacks when assembling these round-up posts and it’s far harder to miss anyone!
Now, time for me to get assembling for April’s Challenge.
