Mini of the Month October '14 - TRICK OR TREAT!!

Post by Dez » Mon Sep 29, 2014 5:16 pm

It's the return of Mini of the Month! So get fresh blades in your xacto knives, knead up your greenstuff, straighten your bristles and show us what you've got!

October's theme is 'TRICK OR TREAT!!'. Let's see those Halloween inspired creations and gnarly Monsters! I want to see everyone enter, from simple conversions to over the top insanity! Post your WIP here, and ask each other questions and become a better modeler!

All systems are valid, in fact it doesn't even need to be a model from a game system. Use your imagination, go nuts! Multiple entries are allowed and ENCOURAGED!!!

Please have all entries in by October 28.

Not doing this as I am a terrible Painter/Converter/Everything model wise, but Anvil Industry makes some Pumpkin heads, which are a perfect fit for space marine heads, and they are carved with classic Halloween designs

Remind me Dez, is sculpting something entirely from scratch off the table? Should it specifically be a conversion? Just wondering/scheming...

All I've converted this month is a couple of Deathwatch Tacticals, not really too much cutting going on there really and more kitbash than conversion. Also I won't be painting them before month's end! :(

EDIT: Wait I do have a chaos spawn with custom arms sitting on my desk. That might be doable!

Will have to wash this guy before painting him, he's been on my desk a bit too long :P

Can we do a November-December event? It's too late to start a November MOTM, but we could still use these 15 days and give everyone more time for the December competition.
