Winter Painting Challenge [Month 1/3]
« on: December 1, 2007, 12:48:38 PM »
Welcome to the December 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...

My vow this month is to finish (and base) by Crone World Guardians. This isn't much of a vow so I might add some more to it.

I'll see if I can get some stuff done on my Autarch/Lord too.

I vow to finally paint these damnable Death Company + jump packs, 10 total.  (Used a rhino in 3rd, get to play so infrequently that they just sort of sat unpainted when i bought models to upgrade to 4th rules army configuration).

Ok, i did like 3 of them today and yesterday - i'll cut a day off the end of the month. =p

I'll vow more later if I have time/finish the Death Company.  And hoping for a digital camera for christmas, so people may at least get to see pictures!  (However, no progress pictures probably.  But how many progress pictures do you need of something that's black with details?)

Well, seeing as I failed last month I've got something to prove.  I vow 2 Eldar Heavy Support platforms.  Not gonna bite off more than I can chew again, my time is sort of at a premium this month (too many parties...).
