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 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.

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.

Once more I'll be taking over for Loydb for this month, in fact I guess since it's now 2/1 in my favour, it was more like Loydb was taking over for me.

And I have now implemented a new system, vows in parenthesis [thats brackets to you plebs], are essentially maybes and therefore won't count towards a fail if you don't do them but still finish the non-maybes, however if you only finish a maybe you fail (so people don't make entire vows of maybes in order not to fail).

I'm vowing 15 skeleton warriors, on round bases, don't ask, will explain later.

Trying for 30, but 15 is just the vow. Running low on cash.

A vacation with hardly any plans seems to be a perfect excuse to try this once. Although I have to learn for a 2nd try fo my test, I's sure I have time to spare ;D

Count me in for 8 warp spiders (2 from a squad of 10 are all but done, some dark pictures here).
Aw heck, 12 (new!) rangers as well.

(what on earth am I thinking!?!...ah well...)

Count me in this month for 10 Harlequin Troupes which is my second troupe unit. As my first troupe squad and my Mimes are now finished and re based ( pics to follow ) .

Also throw in a converted Harlequin Spiritwalker ( Wraithlord )

The pressure should mean I get them done in time for a campaign thats up and coming at my local club.

I have a ton of painting to do by the end of the month.

I'll put in a vow for:
12 Genestealers, Hive Tyrant, 2 Tyrant Guard, Carnifex, 6 Warriors, and 2 Raveners.

I'm just finishing up a squad of 16 Hormagaunts now, and will do the Genestealers next.
