Welcome to Month #2 of the Winter of Discontent Painting Challenge. 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. For month #2, the closing date is January 15.

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.


I think I have all the vows pulled from the old thread. If not, post your vow here and I'll update our list.

Absolutely. Doesn't even have to be GW as far as I'm concerned :) We had one guy pledge to do a Warmachine army last month. The goal is painted lead.

Now time is a little tight for me this month, with it being the holidays and stuff, can I do a single model, like a termie chaplain?

Getting anything painted is better than getting nothing painted. Does he count as an HQ or Elite choice? If so, he's even within the rules. But if you're only doing 1 figure, at least blow us away with it :)

He's an HQ, and I'll try, so here it goes.

I pledge by the Emperor's Will to have my Chaplain in Terminator armour painted by January 15th.

I swear to have a 5 man Fire Dragon Squad including an Exarch with firepike by Janurary 15. This time I'm hoping to finish everything early just in case I forget

loydb: Those Fire Dragons are looking awesome. I loved your Scorpions and can't wait to see these done. Nice bases too.

So apart from running out of black spray meaning I couldnt get all of them sprayed, I've managed to get 40 skaven models to paint.

Now hits problem number 1. I dont have the right shade of brown.

So I go to paint the clothes, and now I cant decide what colour to paint my eshin skaven...

Here are some pics to help you help me decide...

BLUE, BLACK, or GREEN (blue for night, black for ninja, but everyone does that, and green because its camoflage....)

I think the blue looks good against the reddish flesh bits.

I'm up again.  It should be a challenge, as I'll be unable to paint for two of the weeks.  Let's cut down the load a bit from the 20 kroot squad. 

I pledge by the great kroot hawks above that I will paint 10 kroot snipers and 2 krootox.

Jonik, try black with really extreme green highlights, emphasises warpstone too.

Ooooo, I like the idea of that.... Might turn out crap though since its cloth...

I'll give it a go and post it up. :) Any more ideas would be nice too.

Thanks

I've been working on my termies and landraider the past few days, I made a lot of progress. 85% done on the raider and 70-5% on the terminators. I am basically down to the little details.
-Vero
-- 3,000 pt Mixed Chaos Marine, almost refinished
-- 2,000 pts Imperial Guard, under reconstruction
-- 1,500 pts Necron, under the paint swatch
-- 1,500 pts Tyranids, painting for a friend.
