Neglected Model September ’18: Community Painting Challenge

With a week left to the end of the month, it’s time to announce next month’s Community Challenge – As with February and May, September’s Community Challenge for whoever is interested in participating will once again be “Finish a Neglected Model”. Simply complete a single model (or more if you want) that you started painting at least 6 months ago, but still sits unfinished.

Yeap, at this stage, all those models that you started but didn’t complete for painting challenges in January and February (and March, if you want to stretch it) now count as valid for this month’s challenge, so it’s time to dust them off and finish them off!

This challenge is designed to be Super Easy, Barely an Inconvenience. Way back in February, ten of us managed to finish a figure or a few that had eluded completion for a significant amount of time, and by doing so, de-clutter the world’s collection of half-painted models by at least a small amount. In May, we also had ten contributors to cleaning up the world’s supply of half-painted and abandoned models.

Can we hit eleven this coming month? Simply by finishing off that annoying single goblin or space marine on the end of your desk, you could be the one to take us to new heights of neglected participation!

So if you’re keen for it, no need to sign up. Just pick a model that’s been neglected and during the month of September, make it into a completed model. If you’d like to be included in the wrap-up at the end of the month, it’s super helpful if you post a link in the comments section of THIS post, so everything is in one place when I go to stitch it all together. Because someone’s work always gets missed, at least initially!

And if you want some inspiration, just go and check out the wrap-up pages from February and May!

  1. I’m done with all this Slaanesh stuff and both Terrain projects after this weekend, so pulling out some completely different half-finished stuff next month sounds like a really nice change of pace.

  2. This is a great idea, but I’m afraid I’m really sad, and don’t have any started but unfinished figures to take part with, if I start something I have to finish it these days (I don’t have OCD, I think….) But best of luck to all those who are taking part.

    Cheers Roger.

      • Well, it was a bit of a toss-up between “big” as in a single large model (my Chaos Knight) and “big” as in many small models (my Night Goblins). In the end the gobbos won out because I’ll take any significant progress as a win, whereas the Knight would be very much a case of all or nothing.

      • Work on the Knight in the background a little while the goblins are being done as the main event. That way both crawl towards completion and if you get lucky with time or productivity, the knight might end up close to completion, or even better…

  4. I’ve got the perfect subjects for this challenge, three half painted Nurgle Blightlord Terminators. They share at me accusingly every time I put them on the board, bluetaked to their base, surrounded by their fully painted brethren…

  12. Hello everyone, first time participant here! I managed to finish these five tactical space marines, completing the squad. All of the models were started around a year ago, with the first five finished last June.

    Here are the challenge models: (I don’t have a blog to link to, but hopefully just a pic will do)

    And a shot of the finished squad:
