ALL VOWS MUST BE IN BY JANUARY 10th

Welcome to the January Painting Challenge. We are now into the 2nd year of these, first 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.

You can expect to be 'reminded' of your vow around the 20th of the month if we don't see any further posts after you make the vow.

I'll also compile a gallery of completed vow photos before the thread is locked at the end of the month, so don't just claim a vow is complete, show us!

This one will run for December, January and February. (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.

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

Not done this before but could be worth a try at getting my butt in gear.

I have a box set of dwarves that have been mocking me by sitting un opened on my desk for the last 3 months so I vow to paint them.

I vow 16 Dwarf warriors will be painted by the end of the month

*Jumps in*

Finnaly, I have been waiting for the next painting challenge.

I vow to paint a squad of grey knights. The little buggers have waited long enough to be painted.

I'll paint up my ten Dire Avengers.

Figure if I don't buy anything until I get something painted, I'll save a fair bit of cash, right?

As of now, half are built and half are on the sprue.  Updates as I work on them, but not any pictures likely as I lack the funds to replace my broken digital camera.

Well already this vow thing has got me moving better than I was.  All 16 dwarves are now glued together.  Although now I'm looking at them I really should have added the shield after painting as it obscures half the model.

Going skiing on Friday so fingers crossed I can get quite a bit done by then.....

Ok on Callers insistence i will come in on this.

This month i will paint:

3 x 8 individuals squads of Khorne Berserkers with individual colour schemes.

All figures are already built and will be undercoated this evening.

I have a cam but its not the best.



However, everything about Tarrin is unfair and should be sanctioned with extreme prejudice.

The Globals have issued a 2:1 ruling that yes, yes everything about Tarrin is indeed unfair. We have also been sullied merely by contemplating this.
