Mini of the Month March '12 TANK HUNTERS and DRAGON SLAYERS!

Postby Dez » Sun Mar 04, 2012 2:33 am

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!

Cheech413 chose this months theme as 'Tank Hunters', but we should include our Fantasy friends so we've made it 'Dragon Slayers' as well. So make a single model or group of models to fit the theme. Think Rambo, The Dirty Dozen, Conan, The Terminator...that one 'go to' unit that gets the job done!

Make sure you post a Work In Progress shot (NO or MINIMUM paint), as well as the finished product. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT MoTM IS A CONVERSION CONTEST, so no stock models!

BE FINISHED BY MARCH 28th, voting starts on the 29th and runs until the 31st.

So welcome back, and let's see those entries! Please leave your questions here. Good luck everyone!

i'm in.

Assembled the model before painting?? It's not a n00b mistake, it's a training exercise to improve your painting skills

Ok I have but one question Dex...

Can the model be ... almost both? Hard to explain, but the model I am making (won't tell, surprises are fun :wink: ) is not a tank hunter, more of a 40k Dragon Slayer. I assume for the sakes of MotM it will be fun, but feel free to tell me otherwise.

Is it fine to add conversions to an existing unit? Or counts as models in my case.

And does it matter when we have the WIP photos up?

I'm in, but I'm not entirely sure if the model I'm making counts. I don't want to give it away, but it kinda fits the "Rambo" idea.
Why aren't there more arachnids?

I'm thinking of doing a Salamander Commander conversion using Space Marine bits, and some parts from Dark Elf Cold Ones and Black Ark Corsairs. Given that wild 'Salamanders' are basically dragons, do you see this fitting in?

Alright, going ahead with my Salamanders Commander. They're easily my favourite SM Chapter to paint, and I've got some great bits from my spare Dark Elf models.
