Title: Winter Painting Challenge [Month 3/3]
Post by: Kitsune Tsuki on January 31, 2008, 09:47:07 PM
Welcome to the January Painting Challenge. We are now into the 2nd year of these, first under Loydb, Khemri Demon, Serious Callers Only and now me. The goal of this challenge is to get some of that unpainted lead that most of us have laying around table-ready. At the start of each month, participants pledge to have a squad painted by the closing date.

I will update this post with a list of people who wish to vow.

RULES


1. Vows will be frozen 10 days after the start of the challenge. There is no changing of *any* vow after day 10. Say what you'll paint, then paint what you say. If you don't already own the models you want to paint, I suggest not making the vow until you do.  Vows are still accepted after the 10th, but they can not be changed afterward.

2. This is more of a request than a rule. *Please* post work in progress pics if you possibly can. One of the best things about the thread is watching stuff come together.  It's perfectly fine if you don't post any photos, however.

3. I need to know unit sizes when you post your vows.



FAQ
Q: Do I have to do Games Workshop figs?
A: No. Several people make Warmachine vows, myself included.  Feel free to do vows based on any game system.

Q: I need to change my vow!
A: You have until Day 10 of the month.

Q: What if I don't have a camera?
A: We operate on the honor system. If you say you did it, we believe you. There are no prizes, so you only get the satisfaction of lying on the internet if you choose to do so.


Q: Will you do one of these every month?

A: That's the goal. Assuming the board manages to stay up

Q: Hey, what if we finish our vow but decide to paint more?
A: Paint away! If you mean, can you get a head start on next month, I guess so. But it's kind of cheesy to make a vow with a 75% painted unit at the start of the month...

Hmmm...between moving and starting a new job, I doubt I will have much time this month. I'll keep the vow simple. This month I vow to complete Moc's figures (whatever they may be). Plus the low model count will allow me to add extra awesomeness.
Title: Re: Winter Painting Challenge [Month 3/3]
Post by: Kiarstill on January 31, 2008, 11:29:56 PM
I'll vow 10 Dire Avengers, 2 (yea only 2) Shining Spears, and my Farseer on bike.

1 Wing Hive Tyrant
1 Dakka Hive Tyrant
3 Carnifexes
24 Hormagaunts
1 Lictor
1 Zoanathrope
6 Ravenors
3 Warriors
6 Ripper Swarms

if you think it's a ton, it's not to be honest about 50% of that is about 50% done already as I finished last months vow 2 weeks early.

I vow 1 Nurgle Daemon Prince with  a jump pack or wings. If I decide to order the wings, then it'll be wings. If not, then I guess I'll make a jump pack out of cardboard/greenstuff.

It's all I really have left to paint that I own. If I manage to get my hands on some cheap Oblits, then I'll add those to the list.

I'm adding to the list.

Now it's:

30 Plague Marine highlights.

1 DP with wings - Convert the wings until they are Unrecognizable for an RTT tournament/Highlight.

Forget the Terrain, it's horrible as is.

Red highlights and faces...done.  I didn't do the orange-red highlights yet because I'll do them last just in case I accidentally get paint on the reds.  Blood red is a lot easier to cover-up than the mix of blood red and blazing orange =/

Figure I should post some progress reports.  Two of the choir are done.  Very, very happy with them.  Pleased with the freehand I did on one of the scrolls.  I'll try and get images by the end of the weekend.  I also put the reds, browns and golds down on my cyclops, but he still needs some more touching up before I dip him.  I'm thinking I'm going to drop the raptor this month though, maybe replace him with an extra legionnaire.  I'm kind of tired of painting up raptors.  Legionnaires are also primed.

Also my diversion from painting yellow:

(http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a29/CheesyRobMan/ACTA/ShadowDN.jpg)

A Shadow Dreadnought for Babylon 5: A Call To Arms. It's actually a Fleet Action-scale model that will count as an Ancient Shadow ship.

A bit of progress, I undercaoted the tank and gave it two drybrushings, and I have started on the camopattern, you can see it at the turret and the centre of the tank. I still need to do the sides.

The rough rider still needs some detailing and a better lance.

The other two things, roughrider sergeant and my commander can be seen undercoated in the upper left corner.

Man...I can't believe I dropped my model while painting.  I totally bent the golden crown on the St. Celestine.  And the worst part is that due to GW's new crappier bits order system, I can't singly buy the part I needed to replace it.  Here's my current progress.

Amazing armor.  I especially love the feathering.  I'd say the sword could use some more highlighting, maybe blending down more to yellow then to white.

But the armor dude?  Insane.

And here it is (The jetbike I'm going to paint :P):

I'd say the sword could use some more highlighting, maybe blending down more to yellow then to white.

The white around the sword is more orange and red.  The problem is that it's reflected by the light source.  It's quite reflective because the oil that comes from my hands has I try to paint the rest of the arm/swordbase.  I need to dull coat it, but I'll do it later after I complete the whole thing.

Link to what I've done to the first one(Yeah, I know I'm not that much of a painter. But, it needed to get finished):
http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=155992.0

I've finished painting everything but the wings[in the mail] on the second one, and I'm waiting to wash the whole thing to make it look a bit more even.

10 of the 30 Plague marines are completely finished. But, I'll post them all as a group when I'm done.

Here's my current progress.  All I need left is to paint the wings on the cherubs.

Also note that I really really do suck at freehand.  I give props to those who make those awesome freehand designs.  Maybe I should've just make a large decal and use micro-set and micro-sol. =/

EDITED: Vow completed.  I just change this post to avoid double posting.  Also, refresh the browser because I updated the 2 previous picture.  I set the camera lighting at default due to laziness.

Finished the Fire Prism:

(http://pages.sbcglobal.net/jdr/images/eldar/prism.jpg)

Overall, the vow is not looking good. Jetbikers always take me a long time to paint, and there were issues with the white primer I bought for these shining spears which will create some additional work.

I'm sad. I go out to dip my cyclops. While I'm shaking the dip off, I realize I forgot my wipe brush in side. Not a big concern, I'll just grab an old rag to wipe the stain off. Then the falchion falls off. Anger, but not a bit problem. I can glue it back on. Then, while I'm wiping some extra stain off the banner falls off. More anger, but again i'll just glue it back later. Keep wiping off extra material and my hand slips and I drop him. Off comes the head and right arm! Obscenities followed. I pick up and go arm and head, who are now covered in dirt, finish wiping off the other three bits and go wash the two fallen pieces off. I decided I'm just going to strip him and redo him in the future. Maybe see about converting him to a brute instead of a savage. Just need to find make a card for him.

However, I painted up the two acolytes I needed to finish the choir I vowed for the month. Took me two hours to do the two of them.

EDIT: Also completed my three legionnaires.

Epic Fail. i havnt touched a single model that i put in my vow this month as I've been doing bretonnians instead due to lack of love towards my eldar and me wanting to get back into fantasy.

oh well at least now i know what i want to be doing il have more motivation and will vow appropriately next month

I tried finishing my models today, but I blotced the first one, so I wont finish within the time. I burnt my hand on a Nitro engine (there was nothing to grab at the time, so I grabbed the cooling head for those who know wtf it is. My engine was tuned too rich, with idle set high, lost control, had to do something to keep it from speeding off, so I grabbed the head while I cut off the fuel.. didnt expect it to be as hot as it was =P) I temp gunned it after I had my hand under the hose... 188 degrees CELCIUS XD I feel proud, nobody else has so many blisters as I do.

But yeah, you'll see my minis in a seperate thread over the next month cause I'll be posting the progress of the entire army =]

I finished my vow. I thought I was cutting it a bit close, until the post above reminded me that it's a leap year. I will post pictures later tonight.

well put me down for a failure!

I painted up half that list in a wek then I got sidetracked with other "bigger" things. Meaning I put togther a Shadowsword and then I started working on my Warhound Titan.

I still have a bit of work left on them, since I am going to shade the inside parts instead of using the hormagaunt purple foundation color. That was just for the outside where I made the effect a little different for the bug carapace edges. I'm also going to change up the bases a bit and make them Swampy with the water effect stuff.....Oh well...maybe next time! ;)

I completed everything except two pyg bushwhackers which I'll do this weekend.  Unfortunately no pictures because of the unavailability of a camera.
