Summer Painting Challenge [Month 2/3]
« on: June 29, 2007, 12:10:47 PM »
Welcome to the July 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've got a Griffon Heavy Mortar (Testing schemes for my Macharius) and a Defender Heavy Warjack to finish my 350 list.
And probably that Journeyman from last month if I don't get off my ass and finish her in a day and a half.
I pretended to be other members, and finally got BANNED

 I have never done this before and I think I will do it now....

 So my vow: I will paint a Rhino chassis to my Chapter's colors! I have this thing layed out for some time now...

 Can I have such a small vow for starters?
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me

I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...

Well, as I snuffed the last one, I'll have to try harder.

I vow:

 2 Night Lords Space Marines
10 Imprial Guardsmen
1 Heroic Senior Officer (IG)
5 Zombie Pirates

Mr.Squid
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.

I'm being conservative this time around.

8 Termagants
8 Hormagaunts
4 Genestealers

And that's it. That's 20 models in 31 days. As a bonus, they are already assembled and ready for primer.

Now I have to get to work.  :P
