They're doing one over at B&CS, but it's a marine-only kinda thingy, so I thought I'd start one up that was more ecuminical...

Time to revamp your primer-white squads! For the next three months, agree to paint at least 1 full squad per month and post pics of your finished unit on the 15th of the month for December, January & February.

I'll start it off:

I swear on the bloody hand to have a full squad of Striking Scorpions painted up by December 15.

The second month's vow will be posted on the day I upload the pic of the finished squad.

loyd

edit: A squad, for the purpose of definition, would be anything that counted as a troop choice (e.g. HQ, Elite, Troop, etc.). This includes retinue for the independant char (e.g. familiars, bodyguards, etc.). I'd personally like to see multi-model squads -- the purpose of the challenge is to get a bunch of lead painted in a 3-month period -- but maybe you're planning on doing a kickass conversion/paint job for an army leader, nothing wrong with that.

edit: Here's who is in.

I swear by the Emperor's divine light to have my devastator marines (1 sarge, 1 marine with bolter, 4 missile launchers) finished by December 15th.

Honest!  ;)

Anything that takes up a HQ slot would be fine. If he comes with a posse, though, you have to include them :)

Feel free to post Work In Progress pics in this thread as well to help motivate others. We're up to six participants so far after 1 day, a good start.

I hearby swear to paint one full Kroot Carnivore squad.  That's 19 kroot and one shaper.  This will include any necessary assembly as well as conversion work for the shaper.

What about tanks?

If it counts as a unit on the force selection chart, it's valid.

I'm probably going to do a Fire Prism for my 2nd month...

Hmm...motivation for me to start my painting career. I think I'll join in.

I pledge upon all that is shiny and explosive that I will have at least half of 1 squad of my Fire Warriors (6) or all two squads of my Fire Warriors (24) finished by the declared date.

Work in progress. The AOL CD is the best pallette ever. Use each side of it once while shrinkwrapped, then take the cd out and use it on both sides as well!
