Autumn Painting Challenge [Month 2/3]
« on: October 1, 2007, 06:32:10 AM »
Welcome to the October 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 7 daemonettes of slaanesh and 6 mounted daemonettes.  Most of the mounted daemonettes are started, however I plan to almost fully redo them.

being a newbie here I want to make a vow but I have a question: I started working on some Necron Warriors last week, but they are already assembled, and the majority of the armour is finished. So can I make a vow on this or is it considered cheating or something? :)

Thanks

Well last month was a failure of epic proportions, so I'll cut back a bit this time because of Uni.  This month I vow to paint:

1 Jumpgate
4 bases of Thunderbolts (3 ships per base)
8 bases of Starfuries (3 ships per base)
8 Breaching Pods
2 Vorchans

All from Babylon 5: A Call To Arms, for demo games this month.  No 40k stuff yet.

On second thought, I'm only doing one Russ (Sheepz fury or Peanuts might, I havnt decided). Since this is the first time I've scratch built off a chimera, I dont know how long it will take.


BTW, if anyone has spare leman russ sponsons, drop me a PM. I'd be most intrested in taking them off your hands  ;)
