Spring Painting Challenge [Month 2/3]
« on: March 31, 2007, 08:13:11 PM »
Welcome to the April Painting Challenge. We are now into the 2nd year of these, first under Loydb, Khemri Demon, Serious Callers Only 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 will update this post with a list of people who wish to vow.

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.  Vows are still accepted after the 10th, but they can not be changed afterward.

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.  It's perfectly fine if you don't post any photos, however.

3. I need to know unit sizes when you post your vows.



FAQ
Q: Do I have to do Games Workshop figs?
A: No. Several people make Warmachine vows, myself included.  Feel free to do vows based on any game system.

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...

I vow to finish a squad of the elite of Gondor. I know there have been barely any pics of lotr in here, but why not start it.  ;D

I vow:

1 Beregond of Gondor
3 Citadel Guards with longbows
3 Citadel Guards with spears
3 Guards of the Fountain Court with shield and spear

I need to remove the color and make new bases for them so this should be quite a challenge, since i never did that before.

Ok this is my first ever - so please forgive me if you think I'm being too soft on myself.

I Vow to finish my Wraithlord.

Yes he's part way there already, but I've only ever finished about 10 models ever, I think, so starting slow will probably be the best plan. I also Vow to post pics once he is complete. once I've done some washing up, I'll post some WIP pics so you guys can see him.

I'll then start on having 6 Guardian Jetbikes ready for next months vow - only modelling and removing old paint.

Their cause is ours, this blood seals our fates forever!"

Gee, I've barely recovered from the all nighter I pulled to finish the last one.  Oh well, guess I'd better get started on the next month though so it doesn't end up so last minute.

I'll vow:
Six vespid
Sniper drone team
4 drones
3 stealth suits

later WG

Having lost my mojo for the last two months of dark eldar challenges, lets see if I can get it back with a Dark Angels vow.

I'll start with the veterans. 5 vets with some spare arms. If I get a move on by the 10th, I'll add more.

Thanks again to Antiphon for keeping this going.

So on the last challenge I managed to achieve a completed dread. but no landspeeder so only a half vow complete... but it's better than  usually manage.

So for this month:

5 blood claw bikers with wgpl on bike
1 wolf priest

I'm going to try and get the bikers finished on the Easter Bank Holiday So I then have the rest of the month for the wolf priest.

Well done to all the achievers last month and good luck for this one.

Just a small figure vow this month, since I'm going to be away from home for a while. I vow a Black Orc Warboss, and three Tau stealthsuits, which I really need a deadline for, since they're commissions.
