Azazel’s Monster March 2021 Round-Up #Monstermarch5

So here finally is my final Round-Up post for Swordmaster’s Monster March painting challenge. Once again I’d like to thank Swordmaster for running this challenge, as it always provides good motivation to get some of my larger models completed, even if I did my usual thing and got distracted from my original target models – in this case, a set of 6 yetis that are still WIP (the same happened to me in Fembruary!) Though at least the Yetis got started, and I’m sure they’ll be finished in the next couple of months.

The stuff I did manage to complete is a bit of a mix of models with very different motivations behind getting them completed. That I had been stuck on for some time (Rocket and Groot), something that had sat around primed for months and only got started while showing a technique (Shadow Dragon), something else that had sat around primed for months and suddenly looked like an “easy win” (Muiral the Misshapen), a couple of models I’d wanted to paint for awhile and just needed the motivation to kick me up the arse (Varghulf and Thrasher Snail) and something I’d wanted to buy and knew I could use this challenge – and fast Amazon shipping – to order and smash out within a couple of days (Shambling Mound). Funny(?) that the models I really failed on were the ones I’d initially intended to paint for the challenge(!)

I did have a hand in guiding Marouda through her three models for the challenges and helping her with some of the finer details, so I guess I can just blame her for not getting those other models done. Or maybe Maneater on XBox. 😀

Once again, a big thank-you to Swordmaster for running the challenge again this year, and I look forward to the next one! 😀

  1. That is a fine selection of monsters. Also a bit more variety than just Yetis. I think the giant bat and the snail are my favourites. The former has great purple tones going for it, the latter looks really naturalistic.

    • Indeed! Though I’ll have another hard push for them next month as I believe someone is running a “Monster MAYhem” challenge. Though I’m sure I could be distracted again just as easily. I’m also fond of both those two, especially the Varghulf as it’s a model I’ve wanted to get painted for a long, long time…


    • Thanks Mikko. It’s a pretty fun tongue-in cheek shitpost review. It came out as a reaction to much of game journalism’s overly-fawning reviews of Last of Us 2. Fun, mindless, silly game, though. Just picked it up on sale for $20 and finished it in a couple of days, so it didn’t outstay its welcome.

  2. I find painting larger models to be a bit of a chore so I’m really impressed by this lot. You and Marouda accomplished a lot in a single month, I’d say and they look great in the group shot as well.
