Welcome to the Summertime Blues 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. This one will run for June, July, August. (Note that this is three one-month challenges, not one three-month challenge.)

A squad, for the purpose of definition, would be anything that counted as a unit 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.

RULES
1. Vows will be frozen 12 days after the start of the challenge. There is no changing of *any* vow after day 12. 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.

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.

3. The model doesn't have to be texture based -- but the base must be painted.

Painting Challenge FAQ

Q: Do I have to do Games Workshop figs?
A: No. Several people make Warmachine vows. Since Warmachine doesn't use squads in the same way that 40K does, I suggest that it be at least a 3-man squad (Menoth Choir, etc.), or a warcaster + at least one warjack.

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...


Q: I want to paint a squad of Howling Banshees and a single Ranger. Is the Ranger legal?

A: Yes. The "must count as a troop choice" rule establishes the minimum. Anything above that doesn't have to conform, it's just bonus.


Q: When is the closing date?

A: The month runs with the calendar month. Vows freeze on the 12th.

I'll be taking over for Loydb for this month, and I've made the vow making deadline the 12th since it started a couple of days late.

Anyway, I vow to complete my Warboss.

Ive had them converted for ages, just never got round to painting them. Perfect!

Just as a heads up the top banner still says "Vows for June" might want to swap that to july.

Other than that, thanks for taking over for the month, and Ill be in again.

Vow:
9 Fire dragons, 2 exarchs

Its a small one this month, my gf's here and im out of town on the 15th until mid august, so Ill have to paint it up before then. Hoping to get them done for my tournament this weekend, fully painted isnt a requirement, but its the last 2 units in my list that arent painted!

Put me down for the Forge World Cadian command squad.
All the Emperor requires of us guardsmen is that we stand the line and we die fighting. It is what we do best. We die standing.

I'll vow a termie chappy and his LRC for Angels of Vengeance Deathwing. I'll have to buy them first though.

ok lets go with 12 unassembeled genestealers

really i think i may have near 30 lying around in several boxes. I have recently finished gathering my friends old army so im sure ill do more then 12, if i have more that is.

so 12 is the number of genestealers and the number of genestealers shall be 12.

Changing my vow, sorry, I just realized Im not going to have as much time as I first expected due to my gf being here and not wanting to paint as much.

Dropping the fire dragons, Ill get them if i can, but I doubt it.

My new vow: a new heavy support, a very heavily converted and painted wraithlord.

My plan: Free hand a face onto him, or use the harlequin jetbike cover I have coming. I then plan on reposing him, moving his hands to graps a custom made cc weapon, and greenstuffing some details, it should be good.

Shortly (this evening or tomorrow) Ill put up some pictures of the conversion I've done to the wraithlord, before paint, this is my first major conversion of a metal mini, so It's a learning experience to say the least. My hat goes off to people who do complicated conversions on many of their models.

So far I've:
-Cut the back of his knee to bend it, he's going to be walking up some rocks
-Cut his foot to repose it
-Sculpted a face onto his head, the image below is what I'm trying to go for in the end.

Still to do:
-touch up the face
-straighten his arm
-drill out and green stuff flames from the flamer/possibly convert the shurikat to a second flamer for wysiwyg purposes.
-make the base.
-sculpt some dreadlocks onto him

-The model below is not mine, just one im using for an idea.

My vow will be for 1 zombie dragon. Hopefully when I get that together, I'm going to do a squad of skeleton warriors, but for now, my vow will just be the dragon, the old school one too, not the new one, I can't stand the intact wings and such, or the pose.

I ordered all the piece early and picked them up yesterday, I also bought a pin vice which is working nicely and have it half assembled.
Reset my counters in prep for 6th:
Black Templars: 0/0/0
Dark Eldar (new codex): 0/0/0
