Autumn Painting Challenge [Month 3/3]
« on: November 2, 2007, 09:45:49 PM »
Welcome to the November 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.

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.

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...

The fact that I couldn't finish one model is kinda sad...

Okay...lets try:
5 Imperial guardsmen

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 going to go ahead and just vow one leman russ battle tank, as that should be easier than multiple guardsmen to finish, right?

The Baneblade project continues this month.

Since the assembly is complete, I also vow:

10 Imperial Guardsmen.

So 1 Baneblade, 10 troops, and oh, why not...a Baneblade commander as well.

I'm going to vow to do 3 jetbikes and a vyper. Probally not going to get it done to be honest, but maybe this will give me a reason to get it done. If I do manage that, I'll do more jetbikes :).

Put me down for a Shadowseer and a Falcon.  I may paint other stuff, but this is what I want to get done.

EDIT: I've changed my mind, I want to do the shadowseer still, but I would like to do 2 hounds of chaos, Prince Yriel and a chaos champion.

A command squad of IG which I couldn't finish last month due to IRL reasons.

I should be able to pull it off this time.

For myself, I vow to complete turret construction of my Exterminator Command Tank.
