Spring Painting Challenge [Month 3/3]
« on: April 30, 2007, 09:24:37 PM »
Welcome to the April 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.

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.

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...

Seeing as I now have basically no uni work I'm gonna set myself a vow of a Guard command squad, finish the chimera I started and 2 stormtrooper squads (one I've already made a good start on).

Hopefully I wont fail this one  :(

Time to stop lurking....
I'm going to weigh in with finishing my brezerker squad, my defiler, and my last rhino.
So: 8 Brezerkers, 1 Rhino, 1 Defiler.
I also will be starting my board and scenery, otherwise I would vow more (oh, yeah, and I have to graduate college, too, but that's secondary...).

Hey there.

Been a long time lurker on the forums and always liked the idea of the painting challenges. I've been trying to join for a while now but I kept having problems with my registration (the confirmation e-mails didn't work for some reason) - but as you can see, that's all sorted out now.

Hmm. I'm a rather slow painter so I'll start small. Put me down for one Tau Sniper Team, A Wood Elf Lord on Stag, my  nearly completed Commanding XV8 Crisis Battlesuit and six Firewarriors.


Good hunting.

5 man Dark Angels Successor command squad (probably not the standard itself yet though - my wife said she'd do it, but I can't pin her down on when). Maybe the commander too.

I bought ten new Dire Avengers for twenty dollars off of ebay a few weeks ago.  I guess it's time to get around to them.  So that's my vow: ten Dire Avengers.

OK the Wraithlady (decided from fluff that He is actually a She - not that you can tell from the model) is so almost done, so I'll vow her and 3 Guardian Jetbikes.
They need stripping and converting, but I should be able to do it wish me luck.
