Summer Painting Challenge [Month 3/3]
« on: August 1, 2007, 03:23:51 PM »
Welcome to the August 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 might as well do this.

I pledge a meager job on 5 Sister Seraphims.

Btw, does this mean I have to finish it at the end of the month or just 10 days?

You have the whole month. Ten days would be rather unmanageable.

There are only 4 unpainted models in my Eldar collection at the moment, making it pretty straightforward to choose my vow:

2 swooping hawks
1 swooping hawk exarch
1 howling banshee exarch with executioner

Well, I failed last month (Again) so maybe I should try something big.

I Pledge:

10 Dire Wolves

1 Banshee

10 Guardsmen

1 Sentinel

and 1 Hellhound


All the IG stuff is using Foleran colors.

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 just want to let people know, I was without internet access last month, but I pledged and did it anyway! I had some down time on my templars, so I painted my Wood Elf Spellsinger.

Anyway, this month I pledge another 10 Initiates. No college, no job, and no money to do anything tends to leave a guy with a lot of time on his hands.

If you want to procure my services for anything from painting, terrain building or planet/artwork creation, please get in touch by either sending me a private message, or an email at jamescameronclarke@hotmail.co.uk.

You'd think so, wouldn't you...unfortunately I still managed to fail my vow last month.  I will not make the same mistake again (third time's a charm, I tried in December last year)!

I pledge 12 Striking Scorpions.

I don't want to bite off more than I can chew (again) and I don't know whether I would get more than that done anyway.

Nice to see this still going. I haven't touched a brush in 6 months or so, and am going to be travelling 2 of the 4 weeks this month, so I'm going to ease in.

Complete previously started Eldar Ranger unit. The new book meant I had to bolster my 3-man crew up to 5, so I was just going to combine another 3-man crew that I had barely started. Then I saw the direct mail only Ranger fig, and liked it, so the final squad size will be 7.

Hmm....Since I am pretty sick of painting Nids for the time being, I'm going to try to do a whole smorgasborg of different stuff.

20 Night Goblins with Spears (BofSP)
12 Dwarves (BofSP)

Since these are already mostly painted anyways, I'll also add in these:

1 Empire Warrior Priest (my showcase model for the month)
1 Reiklander Youngblood and 1 Witchhunter (Mordheim figs in the bargain bin! Yay!)
3 Ork Slugga Boyz
6 Ork Shoota Boyz
1 Dwarf Cannon and Crew (3 minis)
1 Tyranid Warrior and 2 Ripper Swarms

Like I said, it's an odds and ends kind of month. Trying to paint all the unpainted models I have before picking up any new stuff (yeah, right!)

Having never previously completed a vow, I'll make this aseasy formyself as possible; also I am coming to the end of my thesis, and am now hampered with a reasonably beslubbering insane German history professor; I blame this on the Marshall plan.

I vow 3 Dire Avengers (probably the same ones I vowed last time).
Man: Er... excuse me?
FMG: Yes? I am a doctor, you know.
Man: I was just wondering...
FMG: Get on with it. I'm a Doctor. My time is precious.
Man: Well, it's just...
FMG: My god, man, do you even know what that word means? Let me spell it out: D O C T OR. 6 years of medical school. A PhD.
Man: Look I really...
FMG: I'm the person who makes this whole hospital work...
Man; Look mate, you're  going to have to give me 50p for that paper or get out.

I pledge to complete the following:
1 Heroic Senior Officer
1 Master Vox Operator
2 Command Squad Veterans
1 Leman Russ Battle Tank
1 Sentinel
10 Man Infantry Squad

And I'll post a pic when they're completed!

Seeing as how I overestimated myself last month, I'll go for a smaller vow this time.  I pledge:

1 Storm Trooper squad
1 Basilisk
1 Lascannon heavy weapon team

I'll add more if I'm overcome with a desire to paint things before the 10th.  I had promised my Leman Russ a paint job after it's fantastic performance this week, but it might have to wait.

Man, I already got one figure done last night (I stay up until 4am, no work until 12:30-9):

BTW: Individual figures are much more fun to paint than troops IMO.

Voila:



The sculpt is great, I'm no longer sold on plastic = better.
