Welcome to Month #3 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 #3, the closing date is Sunday, February 19.

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 vow to do at least half my assault marines (5), as time might not permit me doing the whole squad, as I haven't bought half of them.
Reset my counters in prep for 6th:
Black Templars: 0/0/0
Dark Eldar (new codex): 0/0/0

I pledge to finish in the first month: Twelve fire warriors, one crisis suit commander.

As I purchase more models, I may add another FW squad and a hammerhead in month two or three, but for now the above.
I'm a perfectionist. Just not a very good one...

Tomb Kings: W 3, L 1, D 0
Mechanised Tau: W 1, L 0, D 0

Does it count as a unit choice in a tourney game? If so, it counts. If not, no.

Vows updated. I don't see how you guys who do 20-30 figs pull it off. Doing 10 strains me to the edge of sanity :)

Wow, we're back. Here's some progress pics. I've gotten the orange glaze down on all the dragons, and have put down a brass coat on 6 of the weapons. I've also basecoated and shaded the purple on the rangers. Instead of doing just 3, looks like I'm doing 6 of them, so 2 squads, yay.




Oh yeah, all bases basecoated as well.
