Summer Painting Challenge [Month 1/3]
« on: June 1, 2007, 10:40:23 PM »
Welcome to the June 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...

2 Swooping Hawks
1 Autarch with with wings

I swear by the Emperor, I will paint the following by the end of the month:

Terminator Squad x 5 with the teleport beacon

Dreadnought with extra armor.

Instead of the Command Squad, I'll be painting a 10 man tactical squad instead, since I have a more pressing need for them.

Pics will soon follow, I've already airbrushed the black base coat on all earlier tonight.

I hereby vow to paint:

  • 1 Chaplain with jump pack
  • 5 Assault marines (and finish off another 5 that are almost done)
  • 1 Veteran sergeant (and finish another that is half way done)
  • 5 scouts (4 snipers, 1 rocket)
May be adding two land speeders to the list, depends on whether or not I buy them.

I vow:

1 Lascannon Sentinel

2 Squads of guardsmen (20 models)

1 Squigoth

15 Ork Boys

I'll post some WIP pictures soon.
Maybe the regiment consists entirely of Ninjas who were orphaned by Dark Eldar slavers. With a score to settle, these black clad night assassins fight against their hated parent-murderers with laser shurikens and untold ferocity.

Vows Updated.

Vayl's done, but she was already 50% there.  Been that way for a couple months.  Sort of rushed her, because I wanted her done.  May add another highlight on the metals.  She still needs to be based and have her front arc painted.

Got a couple of hours in last night and I have my master mostly blocked in, with a start made on shading. I'm doing him the way No Remorse did that one for Asreus a few months back - fully magnetic, all options available. One man, but three left arms, four right arms, two heads, three backpacks, and a banner.

Oh, and my Rhino is now another razorback Akriel. I decided to take the plunge and get some of those foundation paints, so I got an extra turret while I was at it.

Myung, is that the third or fourth army completed this year? I remember you doing your tau, necrons and BA in these vows. What's next? I notice from your sig that you have no DE or Chaos.

wel I had completed my IG, but then sold 80% of it and rebought newer kits/models so sitting on my shelf is 100+ Guardsmen and like 12 vehicles to build and paint! the building part makes me want to cry.

I had finished my Eldar but then sold almost all my man size models as I wanted the newer shinner ones so I rebought them, so like 80 models to paint(atleast they're all built!)

I have done most of my BA but I still have like 2 more tactical squads 1 devestator, 1 assualt squad and like 4 vehicles to finish out my full 2nd company

but I have completly finished my Tau and Necrons this past year and this will be my 3rd completed army in 12 months.


I could maybe one day do DE but I will never do Chaos....I just don't like em!



oh and btw I finished 2 squads and my 5 girl sara squad lastnight. (I had started them last week after I had finished last months vow) Primed my last 10 girl squad and put togther the rhinos and even magnetized all the bwitty little bits like the banners and dozer blades and Laud Hailers on em.


I am really sick of putting togther Rhino Chassis vehicles ><
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
