Colore Ton Monde: June

The anniversary edition of Colore Ton Monde this month , led to a bumper crop of models painted by entrants (22 finished models this month!). Click here to go see them all, including my own Mangler. The photo, taken at the Oldies night last week, with a proper camera, lighting set-up and background.hose really make the mini look better than it deserves. I chose the mangler as it fit well with the theme for the month (That's gonna hurt!), but come the time to finish the model I was rather uninspired, and was looking round desperately for a bucket of dip to plunge him in to.

Off to stick some flock on his base now. Maybe there'll be something to help me do so in this big box of fun. Yes, that's right kids, I won the prize draw!  Thanks to Club Chaos for running this amazing challenge, and thank you also to Gamers' Vault for putting up the prizes! (Sasori is the winner, but that's my forum nom de plume).

Whilst the camera was out last week, I had one of the Big 'un's minis that happened to be in my bag snapped as well. It came out nicely. I don't think she'll notice the difference I this pic and the one I took, but it was fun to have her on the list of those who entered the challenge.

On to this month's challenge:

Si tu finis pas ton assiette, on va l'envoyer en...

Pour le mois de juin, nous vous invitons à peindre un modèle qui traîne sur votre table de peinture. Quelque chose de commencer par le passé, mais mis de côté pour quelques raisons que ce soit, ou un projet qui s'éternise. On accepte aussi tout vieux modèle pas encore commencer, pour étendre plus large.
If you do not finish your plate...
For the month of June, we invite you to paint a model that hangs out on your painting table. Something started in the past, but set aside for any reason whatsoever, or a project that drags on. We also accept any old model yet to be started.
This is great, I was hoping for a theme that would give me an excuse to finish off the Llael Loyalist Artillery Corp that I started (and obviously failed to finish) a few months ago. They are in various stages of painting, including one mini that I had missed at the basing and priming stage and now joins the rest of the section completely nude, so to speak.


  1. Congrats again Derek. I think you are too hard on yourself with the Mangler, you did a nice job on him. Can't wait to face him with your other Llaelese forces. It should add some punch. :)

    1. Yeah, my Llaelese list needed a heavy hitter that can take some damage in there. I love the fluff and the style of the army, but it needed a bit more of a punch. I'm sure they'll come out to play soon, but I'm more into getting a feel for DL right now!

    1. Indeed! A box full of goodies. I picked it up at the club last night, and I am very happy with it.
