ALL VOWS MUST BE IN BY October 10th

Welcome to the Autmn Painting Challenge. We have been running these all year now under Loydb, Khemri Demon 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'll list vows made, name and praise those that make it and name and shame those that don't.

This one has run for September, now October and November. (Note that this is three one-month challenges, not one three-month challenge.)

Vows for October:

SeriousCallersOnly: Haemonculus + 5 incubi ;D
Kitsune-Tsuki: Seraph, 7 dire avengers ;D
Myung: 12 fire warriors, 1 devilfish  ;D
Chaplain Harlean: Hellhound and heavy weapons team ;D
Scribble: Skull Pass Gobbos - 40 spearmen, 20 archers, troll, 10 spider riders, shaman, general  :(
Nicolai Gortz: 7 Termies + Chaplain :(
Khemri: Dwarf Thane and Basilisk :(
Valar: Finish 8 wardancers, 5 Ork nobz, WE Standard bearer :(
BigBoss: 7 wardancers w/command, WE BSB, Raven Guard dread :(
Lt Fury: 12 Kasrkin stormtroopers, 3 heavy weapons squads, 16 guardsmen :(
Yentz: 10 Trolls, 6 praetorians, Lord Tyrant Hexeris ;D
LoydB: Finish ranger squad (how many?) ;D
Archonbjorn: 1 dread, 1 inquisitor :(
Col. Gravis: 3 Ratling snipers, 10 praetorians, gatling gun :(
Marshall George Timson: 15 Zombies  ;D
Hellboy: 8man Word bearers squad + dreadnought ;D
TheDean: 5 Guardians, 2 support platforms, warlock :(
Merlyn921: 4 scorpions + exarch :(
naikee: wraithlord + 5 avengers :(
unscientific postscript: 3 swooping hawks + exarch :(
Evil_toast: 5 x Warp Spiders + Exarch, 3 x Wraithguard, 3 x Swooping Hawks + Exarch :(
Guardian of the rose: 16 guardians :(
Big Tuff Cream Puff: 4 destroyers ;D
Trooper Caffran: 15 Night Lords + dreadnought :(
Necrontyrtitan: Black Templar command squad :( 



Vows Completed:

 ;D Chaplain Harlean ;D
 ;D Hellboy ;D
 ;D Kitzune-Tsuki ;D
 ;D Yentz ;D
 ;D Big Tuff Cream Puff: 4 destroyers ;D
 ;D Marshall George Timson ;D
 ;D SeriousCallersOnly ;D
 ;D Loydb ;D
 ;D Marshall George Timson ;D
 ;D Myung ;D




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.

4. Vows in parenthesis/brackets are essentially maybes and therefore won't count towards a fail if you don't do them.

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 11th.

 
Thanks to Loydb for getting this up and running (come back any time), and Khemri Demon for continuation. Lets see those vows.

I'll kick off....

SeriousCallersOnly: another 10 man raider squad (no raider for them until I get a sweet deal on ebay), haemonculus, (maybe 5 incubi)

I vow to paint a 12 man Fire Warrior Squad and 1 Devilfish


I know that is rather small for me, but a few nights ago I was in m closet digging around for stuff to paint when I stopped and looked at the pile of boxes and blisters I have yet to build. SO I vowed I am not allowed to buy anymore 40k till all my stuff is built. So this is going to be mostly a building month for me. That almost takes as long! I spent 5 hours putting togther 12 Fire Warriors the other night

here is my pile o stuff to build...yes that's like $1,100 bucks worth of crap!



9,000 pts Eldar - Alaitoc - 6,500 pts Blood Angels
8,000 pts Imperial Guard - 3,000 pts Tryanids
3,000 pts Sisters of Battle - 4,000 pts Orks
2,000 pts Chaos - 1 Massive Crack Addiction

MYung, qhat do you do for a living that allows you to buy all those models?  I'm guessing drug dealer or a doctor.

If he were a doctor he wouldn't have time to paint and build as much as he does.  Drug dealer it is.

Whats that, 10 vows in? Brisk business again, nice to see so many returners from last month.

Big vow for scribble this month.

Nicolai, I did termies and the same chappie a couple of months back if you'd like a look.

I'll update the vow list when I get a minute.

That's it...and no new models until they're done. The Leman, Chaos Marines, and Chimera are on the table for November.

Pics coming soon...as soon as I find the time and a server to put them up on.

I don't have acces to a camera atm but I will do my best to arrange something to get my minis online.

I have this MKIV dreadnought lying around here. Just ordered it from forgeworld and basecoated it till now. I will start with that one. Next to that I have a inquisitor model lying around here. [The special character.] which I will also start painting if my dread is done.

I am currently painting a whole deamonhunters army, so any motivation is welcome hehe.
