Autumn Painting Challenge [updated with COMPLETED VOW GALLERY]
« on: November 1, 2006, 02:18:36 PM »
ALL VOWS MUST BE IN BY November 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, October and now November. (Note that this is three one-month challenges, not one three-month challenge.)

Vows for November

Inquisitor Sethtus: 5 HE Silver Helms ;D

Vows completed

 ;D SeriousCallersOnly: 6 DE Jetbikes ;D
 ;D Inquisitor Sethtus: 5 HE Silver Helms ;D
 ;D Loydb: Wraithlord ;D
 ;D Chaplain Harlean: 10 guardsmen, 5 hard. vets (2 plasma guards + officer) ;D

 ;D Marshall George Timson: 10 ghosts (10 wraiths) ;D
 ;D NaOtama: 7 Seraphim, 8 hawks ;D
 ;D CheesyRobMan: Wave Serpent ;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

Sign me up for a wave serpant (already primed) and 2 war walkers (on order). If I have the time, I'll also finish my last 3 fire dragons (primed) if the holidays don't get in the way.

Let's see, this month I'll vow...

*Rummages through bitz box, turns up very little*

Uh, a Space Marine Captain, and five Assualt Terminators (relics from my failed Deathwing attempt).

This is essentially a filler vow until next month, when I'll have a whole Space Wolf Battleforce to do. Although my end of year exams start next month as well, so we'll see how that turns out.

Well, since I was overly ambitious last month, I hereby am scaling back my vows.

4 Grots
8 Shoota Boyz
6 Slugga Boyz

Thats eighteen models. If I finish one per day, I'll make it. As a bonus, the camera is working, and I can post some pics of the WIP. Oh, and the Warboss is almost done, along with 15 sluggaz and 8 shootas. That's why I didn't make my vow last month!

Vows updated, 15 in so far. Good to see so many returners, and a few new faces. I'll be away for a couple of days, so don't expect any updates for a bit. Off for a weekends gaming as it happens, using deathwing and dark eldar, both of which painted throught these vows over the last year.

See, it gets things done.

I'll vow 10 Necron Warriors. 

I'm aiming for 20, but I doubt I'll have that many done.
