Winter Painting Challenge [Month 3/3]
« on: January 31, 2008, 09:47:07 PM »
Welcome to the January 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'll vow 10 Ork Boyz.

Not a huge vow, I know, but they're all I've got to paint.

On to my third month of the Painting Challenge

This time my Vow will be the following:

Sisters of Battle

(1) Sisters of Battle Canoness (In Progress)
(1) Sisters of Battle Squad (Done - 10 Sisters)

Dark Angels
(1)Company Master (Not going to Happen)

Tyranid
(8 ) Genestealers (Done)

Things I didn't get time to post in my original Vow.

The List will probably change based on my progress within the first 10 days and how busy I suspect I will be as school is back in Session.

I will keep updates here.

Hmmm...between moving and starting a new job, I doubt I will have much time this month. I'll keep the vow simple. This month I vow to complete Moc's figures (whatever they may be). Plus the low model count will allow me to add extra awesomeness.

I vow 1 Nurgle Daemon Prince with  a jump pack or wings. If I decide to order the wings, then it'll be wings. If not, then I guess I'll make a jump pack out of cardboard/greenstuff.

It's all I really have left to paint that I own. If I manage to get my hands on some cheap Oblits, then I'll add those to the list.

I'm adding to the list.

Now it's:

1 DP with wings or jump pack - Converted.

30 Plague Marine highlights.

1 DP with wings - Convert the wings until they are Unrecognizable for an RTT tournament/Highlight.

Forget the Terrain, it's horrible as is.
