I usually don’t do Work In Progress posts these days, but as one of the miniature painting challenges being run this month is Monster March over at Path of an Outcast and Swordmaster does weekly updates, I thought I’d drop one in this week to show my progress. As I say, I usually like to keep the stuff I’m working on as a surprise because I get distracted and sidelines into other models SO often – and I’m sure it can be disappointing for some people to not see something completed. But this post will work as a show of some of the things I’m working on. I should point out now, there’s Buckley’s of me managing to finish all of these models this month.
It’s far from a nice WIP shot, and probably resembles something more akin to abstract expressionism, or alternately, your local dump, but it does show the Yetis I decided to work on, the bat-vampire-demon that distracted me from the yetis, the scorpion-guy that distracted me from the bat-vampire-demon, and also a winged demon-monster from Shadows of Brimstone, a very specific treeman, and a non-specific treeman who have all been sitting, part-done in or out of the tray for quite some time now.
Monster March did a pretty good job of motivating me to get a lot of stuff finally finished last time I was able to participate, so we’ll see how well it works for me in 2021. Hopefully I can get through a good few of these bastards!
If you’ve got something that would fit into the theme of “Monsters”, then I’d recommend checking out Swordmaster’s links above and joining in. Just off the top of my head I can think of a Bloat Drone and a Pig Demon that could easily do double-chellenge-duty this month….
