Hobby Painthammer2018

#Painthammer2018 Retrospective & Community Showcase

It’s been a fantastic 2018 for the hobby, so let’s take a look at what the community has been up to with the #Painthammer2018 project!

Thank you all for being a part of the #Painthammer2018 project. With 2019 looming I thought it was time to do a retrospective. I asked participants on Twitter to post pictures of the miniatures they were most happy with from 2018 and to say a few words about what they were happy with or what they got out of the Painthammer project. Below are the replies I got, I hope you enjoy reading them.

“I don’t think I “finished” that many models, but just getting back into the hobby this year, and I got a lot of stuff tabletop+.”


@Des_Roin

“I had so much fun with . Now this doesn’t look like much but this is more stuff painted than I have ever done before particulary in one year and still counting!”


@KhorneDog

was a major inspiration to me (thank you!). I think it’s a great way to motivate people. Quite proud of this one – first subassembly, first pinning, first custom base.”


@LeVermenarque

“The first companion is done. this is the one I present to you for your Painthammer round up. Also used your list for non-GW stuff, and mostly painted non GW this year.”


@LTuatha

“Here’s a couple of my favourites from this year. I managed to get a lot done despite struggling through one of the hardest professional years of my life resulting in some pretty shitty mental health. Thanks Painthammer was a great motivator.”

“My daughter Beth (11) also participated. Here is her favourite models.”


@MantikorPaints

was a nice challenge without too strong restrictions so that it was not a problem to jump in. My favorite models of this year are the Relic Knight Porphyrion of House Terryn and Lord Mortarion of the Death Guard. I love such iconic models!”


@Metalhead_Minis

“I had a great time doing and I am definitely looking forward to 2019! I like that it motivated me to paint more in between commissions and it also allowed me to see how many I can do in a year. Thank you so much 💜


@nikkikolls

“My favorite would be my Space Wolves Leviathan! I learned a lot about airbrushing panels, weathering, and some basing. Also won my first painting prize with him at ReaperCon! Thanks for organizing 2018 – excited for 2019! ❤️


@smallworldgames

“These ladies are my favourite of . This was a great thing to be involved in as my favourite part of the hobby is like-minded people sharing their work and this was a great way to do it.”


@SonofUltramar

“The only model I finished in 2018, before my MH took a nose dive and I went into therapy. Was sat in dining room while on the best holiday I’ve had in years.”


@spruesandbrews

“One of my favourite models done for has got to be Tamurkhan! One of my favourite Forge World models that I had always wanted to do, and especially special as he got to appear in our first appearance on Warhammer TV!”


@Subtle_Brush716

“I’m so proud of this guy because it’s my first time doing a major sub assembly and my first time magnetizing a miniature to use 3 different set ups! I absolutely had a blast painting him.”


@xavmand12

“2018 was crazy for me hobby wise, this Stormcast I did for my first year anniversary of getting into the hobby and soon after I started doing commissions and helped me keep track of it all and stay motivated throughout the year. Thanks for putting it together.

“The space wolf aggressor is just a model I was really proud of lol. I won’t reach 365 minis this year but I think I’ll be able to get to 280 which is way more than I ever thought I’d do and I am looking forward to to try and beat that record”
