Neglected Models February 2019: Community Painting Challenge

Here we are – a year on from when these Community Painting Challenges really kicked off – I thought the original reprise of Decembruary was going to be more of a one-off in terms of people being interested in participating. In light of that, I thought I’d actually recycle much of the round-up post from last February, so the many people who have joined over 2018 have another chance to check out these models. (don’t worry – I won’t do this every month! Probably.)

But what is a “Neglected Model Challenge“? Well, it’s as simple as it sounds – Simply complete a single model (or more if you want) that you started painting awhile ago, but still sits unfinished. I suggest 6+ months, but that depends on what your backlog is like.

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 February, 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!

Krautscientist from Khorne’s Eternal Hunt completed his converted model of Interrogator Chastity of the Ordo Hereticus.

Alex from Leadbaloony finished this Necron-with-no-name, hiding out on the Imperial fringes.

Just Needs Varnish completed a trio of 20mm Japanese Type 89 Medium Tanks.

Mikeland82 from Starship Vorenus completed three sets of models this month – finishing a repaint of an old-school/oldhammer Emperor’s Hammer Space Marine Rhino APC that had been outstanding for some time.

Mikeland82 also completed this trio of Primaris Space Marine Reivers. (Space Marines can’t spell, apparently!)

Finally (firstly, actually) Mikeland82 completed this rather wonderful female Soviet Sniper, hitting both the Neglected model challenge as well as the Fembruary Challenge.

Wargamer Eric would be quick to tell us that “I AM THE LAW!” Or his figure would, at least, with a Dredd-inspired Forgeworld Imperial Enforcer.

Steinberg Shed Space finished a model that’s pretty familiar to me recently, the 2nd release of the Great Unclean One of Nurgle.

Argentbadger has painted Hannah, Chief Freikorps Archivist for Malifaux.

Ann from Ann’s Immaterium completed a Chaos Cultist that had been bugging her for some time.

Ann also painted up Sebelex: Devourer of the Dead who had been languishing for a year or more to join her Plaguebearers.

Backtothehammer completed a ton of Wood Elf Spearmen/Crimson Guard (shields coming soon!)

  1. congratulations on the milestone, these challenges are a great way of encouraging people to finish projects. Will hopefully have something finished to enter for this one

  2. Cool to see those entries, as I hadn’t yet discovered this wonderful blog a year ago. I absolutely love that Necron-with-no-name! It’s also great to see that at least most of the authors seem to still be active and taking part in these challenges!

    I’ll have to see what I’ll work on for this challenge.. I’ve got only a couple of models which I have started painting but not finished, and they’re not even 6 months old. But I do have a good bunch of assembled/primed models which are certainly neglected, and for 6+ months if memory serves.

  3. Since I just finished my centrepiece model for January I have no excuses not to enter next months challenge too. And unlike all of you I actually have a ton of neglected models. 😉

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – these challenges are great. Thank you for putting in the time and effort to run them.

    • I had three centrepiece models that I’d ahve liked to do, but all three are (luckily?) also Neglected Models, so whatever I don’t finish “on time” in January, will also be eligible for February’s challenge! Luckily, you and I are the only wargamers with neglected models! So I hear.

  4. That’s some lovely stuff from last years ‘challenge’.
    Embarrassingly I’ve only just discovered your blog but thanks to Kraut Scientist I’m happy to see another entertaining and enjoyable blog.
    These ‘challenges’ are great for an eclectic hobbyist like me that is so easily distracted by the next idea that pops into my head.

    I have a shed full of unfinished miniatures, not least of which is finishing my House Escher gang. Hopefully the name plates I’ve ordered will arrive in the next couple of weeks and this will give me the perfect opportunity to finish ’em off.

    • All good mate – and I know exactly what it’s like to be just a touch eclectic and butterfly-like in my hobbying!
      I’m not sure, but I *think* Alex from Leadbaloony is going to run “Fembruary” again this year, so your Escher can easily do hobby-challenge-double-duty with Alex as well. I might well do a few more of my own sadly-neglected Escher. Nameplates certainly sound interesting…

  5. If I don’t finish some of January’s scenery challenge stuff it actually qualifies for February’s neglected model challenge! I’d like to think that’s good planning, but that would imply I actually plan anything. Nice to see this round-up again and thanks for the mention – I can’t believe it’s nearly a year since I painted those tanks!

    • I’ve actually got a few things that fall under the same double-category. Both scenery and centrepieces! Welcome as well – it’s been great to have you regularly represented in these challenges! 🙂

  6. Nice trip down memory lane. Don’t think I had started any challenges at this point.

    I for one, really appreciate that you set guidelines but are pretty flexible about the details. It makes it easy for everyone to participate and fun.

    • It’s starting to heat up in NSW now, from what I’ve seen. 1 year is about the smallest test of time that I can imagine though – we’ll see if it’s still going in a few more years! 🙂

  10. I’ll work on getting at least one neglected model done. Given the number of hideously neglected models I have laying around, it shouldn’t be hard to pick one. An embarrassment of riches!
