Mechanismo May ’19: Community Painting Challenge – Community Round-Up

Sunfire’s Inquisitorial representatives – Inquisitor Henrietta Kappel, Ordo Malleus; Genetor Mordecai Linden; Interrogator Tiberius Gideon Lambert

Sunfire, from Rhoda’s Reach has shared a trio of Inquisitorial representatives for Mechanismo May – Inquisitor Henrietta Kappel, Ordo Malleus; Genetor Mordecai Linden and Interrogator Tiberius Gideon Lambert.

Sunfire’s Alpha Legionnaires

Sunfire also completed a triad of Alpha Legionnaires, based on Primaris Marines and incorporating some Adeptus Mechanicus heads, creating a rather cool and unique look.

 

Pete’s Russian Airbourne Armour

Pete S /SP from SP’s Projects Blog completed fourteen pieces of armour across three types for Mechanismo May –

Pete’s ASU-85

Firstly, we have a platoon of Soviet ASU-85 self-propelled guns. I actually thought that these were 15mm models initially, but they’re actually 6mm(!)

Pete’s Sprut SD support vehicles

Next up, a foursome of Sprut SD support vehicles, which Pete describes pretty well as “lesser known”. I certainly hadn’t heard of them before!

Pete’s PT76 Amphibious tanks.

Pete finally completes May with a platoon of PT76 Amphibious tanks, bringing his Soviet forces to a nice amount of reinforcements for the month.

 

Dave Stone’s Star Wars Droids

Dave Stone of Wargames Terrain Workshop completed a foursome of Droids from Star Wars. We have an FX medical droid, the astromechs R5-J2 and R4-I9, and then finally an RA7 protocol droid. Certainly a set that covers the topic of Mechanismo!

 

Krautscientist’s Argus the Brazen, Hellbrute of Khorne.

Krautscientist from the Eternal Hunt completed an old-school Forge World model – a Chaos Dreadnought of Khorne, now known as a Hellbrute. Given the moniker Argus the Brazen, he’s certainly an impressive looking model!

 

mcmattila’s Revelators Space Marine Captain

mcmattila of mcmattilaminis has completed a Space Marine Captain from his Revelators Chapter for his Mechanismo May model. As always, it’s a beautifully clean piece of work.

 

Dave Kay’s UR-025 from Blackstone Fortress

Dave Kay from Scent of a Gamer completed the Man of Iron player character, UR-025 from the Blackstone Fortress board game. Luckily there’s absolutely nothing suspicious about this completely-loyal, all-Imperial mechanical construct.

 

Thomas’ converted Hellforged Thousand Sons Contemptor

Thomas, of High Times on the Eastern Fringe completed a converted Hellforged Thousand Sons Contemptor, A very cool conversion, especially given that it had previously been a Converted World Eaters Contemptor of Khorne.

Thomas’ Thousand Sons Rhino

Thomas also completed a second model for Mechanismo Maya Rhino for his Thousand Sons force. We’ll need to see a full army shot of Thomas’ Thousand Sons in a few months.

 

Wudugast’s Ikit Claw, Skaven Engineer

Wudugast, from Convert or Die completed the Skaven character – Ikit Claw. The most renowned of all of the Skaven Warlord-Engineers, this model is even more mechanical than the original model, and certainly fitting for Mechanismo May.

Just Needs Varnish’s

Just Needs Varnish from Just Needs Varnish completed a pair of 1:72 German Panzer 38(t) tanks – so named because of them being “liberated” from the Czech and incorporated into the forces of the German Reich. Once again, he manages to make them look pretty bloody amazing, with such sharp highlights but still a bit dusty and weathered.

 

Mark Morin’s German AFV’s for Eastern Front battles from May.

Mark Morin, of Mark A Morin completed a preponderance of Panzers in May. While I’d like to take some credit for Mark’s productivity, the fact is that Mark is a tank-painting machine. As usual for Mark’s posts filled with armour, it’s well worth clicking that link to see them all in their detailed glory!

 

PatrickWR’s Forge World Night Lords Dreadnought

Finally, I’ve just had PatrickWR from Comrade’s Wargames let me know that he also completed a model for Mechanismo May – in this case a rather awesome looking Night Lords Dreadnought from Forge World.

 

My own finale shot from Mechanismo May had some issues, as I left out several of the models that fit, so instead I’m just throwing in my “all-May” models image instead. You can see the bunker-building, 2 Ork artillery pieces, 2 Star Wars Bacta tanks, 2 Legion of the Damned Space Marines in power armour, an Iron Warriors Traitor Legion Vindicator tank, a pair of (captured) Universal Carriers, and a pair of 88mm Flakartillerie and a Ratman with a bionic power fist.

Now that I’ve wrapped up with all of this, are your own Mechanismo May Challenge models missing from here? If you left a link in the announcement thread, then it should be here and I apologise. If there’s no link there, then leave one here. I may seen, read and even commented on your post, but I’m damned if I can remember each and every blog post I go through each month! Broken links, etc – just bring it to my attention and I’ll also fix them up ASAP.

Mechanismo May ’19 Painting Challenge 2019: Personal Round-Up

As has happened a few times, especially with this year being as messy as it’s been so far – when I took my “personal round-up” photo(s), it turned out that I fucked up a little when trying to take a shot for the challenge as well as a shot for everything else – so with that in mind, I’ve just binned the other photo and we’ll just have to go with this one.

So for the challenge, I finished the bunker-building, 2 Ork artillery pieces, 2 Star Wars Bacta tanks, 2 Legion of the Damned Space Marines in power armour, an Iron Warriors Traitor Legion Vindicator tank, a pair of (captured) Universal Carriers, and a pair of 88mm Flakartillerie and a Ratman with a bionic power fist. Not too shabby, given the circumstances.

I managed to complete a total of 33 models in May. Once again, not what I’d hoped to get done but still squeezing past the model/day that I like to keep up. By end of April I had 147, so this brings me to 180 finished by the end of May.
