Assembly April ’18: Community Round-Up

Ann’s Instant Chaos Army

April’s hobby challenge seems to been reasonably successful, with quite a few models combining into existence.

Ann from Ann’s Immaterium has put together a whole lot of stuff – I see Daemonettes, Chaos Hounds, Raptors (or maybe Warp Talons?), Possessed, as well as some Plague Marines and of course Big Daddy himself, a Great Unclean One.

Roberker, Juggerbot and friends.

Mark Morin completed Roberker and Juggerbot, who aren’t a musical duo like Simon & Garfunkel or Hall & Oates, but a pair of death-dealing combat droids. …who only moonlight in the music industry.

The Bureaucultist.

Interrogator Klien Inson

Countess Mandelholtz, of the Mandelholtz House of Imperial Finance.

Kitbasher and converter extraordinaire, Krautscientist from Khorne’s Eternal Hunt has created a trio of Inq28 models for his Ordo Scriptorum retinue. First up was “The Bureaucultist“, followed by Interrogator Klien Inson, and then Countess Mandelholtz.

Here it touches down on a lake of coffee and icing sugar.

Steinberg, of the associated Shed Space put together and also painted a rather cool and impressive looking Steam Wars MDF model of a US Navy Steam Wars Skyship.

Barik Farblast. Ready to blast. Or do some Tromboning.

Faust from Doubledowndice assembled and painted (painting stuff as well is completely fine!) a custom-kitbashed version of that Classic Bloodbowl Dwarf player, Barik Farblast. I initually thought it was a new Forge World model of that character since I’ve not kept up to date on all of the new Bloodbowl stuff, so, you know – great job there!

Wild at Heart: A David Lynch Film starring Gor Half-horn.

Wudugast of Convert or Die put together this pretty amazing rendition of Gor Half-Horn, the newly-released Forgeworld Necromunda Beastman Bounty Hunter. I think in many ways Wudugast’s model is superior to the official Forgeworld model and is a model I’m very likely to rip off draw inspiration from in the near future.

My own limited output was (sorta) shown in yesterday’s post, though I don’t have any group shots.

Did I miss your assembled models for this month? If so, please leave a note in the comments and I’ll add them in. Even if I’ve seen them on your blog, I can’t remember stuff like that by the time I do these round-ups!

And now, back onto getting those Neglected Models of May done!

Renegade Armiger Warglaive.

We now have a late addition from Krautscientist (posted after I went to bed last night but after I scheduled the auto-post for this round-up). A Renegade Armiger Warglaive for and of the World Eaters.

Arthrand Nightblade, Wood Elf Sergeant

The Imperfect Modeller created this fantasy diorama for April’s challenge. Arthrand Nightblade, Wood Elf Sergeant. Since there was no link to the April Challenge post, I missed it until today as I’ve been scrolling through posts from the past few weeks that I may have missed while having foot and knee issues and missing stuff. It’s a lovely and evocative piece that works really well with the Wood Elf, so it’s a shame it missed the initial posting – but better late than never!

  1. As always, cheers for the shout out! That Gor Halfhorn model is quite brilliant, indeed!

    Depending how strict you want to be about this, the Renegade Armiger I posted on my blog earlier today also belongs with the rest of the Assembly April crowd — even if it was only completed a bit later 😉

  2. Woohoo, my first challenge! Thanks for the mention. 🙂

    I had laugh at your comment of stealing Wudugast’s idea for Gor, asI was thinking the same damned thing! Do I hear the makings of a ‘Make your own Gor Half-Horn Challenge’ down the line?

    Really nice work by everyone. Ann definitely takes the cake for most completed minis! I like them all though. Everyone’s projects are pretty cool!

    • No problem mate – glad to have you on board! That would be a fun little challenge, but given how slow I am to get things done, I’ll just have to hope I can clear some of the mess and get inspired at the same time!

  3. Great work all and once again cheers for Azazel for throwing down the gauntlet. Lots of fun, and great to participate in the challenge.

    Oh yeah – one more thing – Roberker and Juggerbot are more fans and practitioners of

    …heavy metal…

    sorry, could not help myself…:)

  4. People did some nice stuff for April, both assembly and painting.

    Nope, no warp talons, only Swiss Army Raptors, and of course the invisible poxwalkers! Thank you for doing the challenge. I probably wouldn’t have cobbled these guys together for April if you hadn’t. 🙂

    So now

    • Most welcome, Ann. The next challenge will be to take this typically “game ready” looking army and really level it up. By Spray priming it. Then it’ll really be “job done” for tables all around the country. 😉
      Hope you can find the time to do at least a single model for Neglected Model May. 🙂

      • Ha! So very true, that. You could use three different spray primers and then the army would be a Three Color Standard for tournament play.

        I’m hoping to get at least one neglected model done by the end of May. I’m currently picking away on another neglected cultist as well as a tankbusta I started ages ago and never finished.

    • Cheers mate. I know that assembling and kitbashing is your bread and butter. I was surprised not to see something big and impressive from you for this? (or even a group shot of the assembled Carnaval or something!)

      • It’s been a weird couple of months for me personally and hobby-wise. To sum it up in a phrase “I’ve been all over the place” haha. So I guess I didn’t think I’d be focussed enough to complete anything, which I haven’t. The Carnaval still needs a couple more characters and some carts/wagons. I think it just came down to not wanting to put any more un-needed pressure on myself. Thanks for thinking of me though man.

      • Yeah, my personal life has been a clusterfuck for over a year now with one shitty happening after another so I know what you mean to an extent. (In good news, I can almost walk properly again with only minor pain!) Painting figures has been one of my few escapes from the endless bullshit of real life.

    • Uh…. next month (June) was going to be finish a “unit” of any kind, followed by finish something impressive. Then neglected model, then unit. So following the pattern, it would be October. I think. You can always jump in early though and submit a completed & painted Gor for something impressive in June.
