Spring Painting Challenge [Month 2/3]
« on: April 1, 2008, 05:23:57 AM »
Welcome to the 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: 16 Empire Spearmen... to start.  I've been on a roll so who knows, could easily end up being more.

April 6th Update:  Doing a half blue/half white color.  Have the first layer on armor and clothing done.  At this rate I could have them done by the end of the week.

Vows locked, but not updated.  I have decided on my vow though.  I kind of picked models I had from each of my armies laying around.  Titan Gladiator, Eiryss, Kreoss, Shepard, Ulrik the Slayer.  Titan is based and I"m going to strip and redo eiryss.

updated in morning.

Yet another update!  Should have my spearmen finished in the next 2 or 3.  All I really have left is the leather strapping to highlight and the skin/hair.

Sorry this is so late.  This month I'm only going to do something small, and then maybe fill in the gaps with other minor models.

Ok, so this month-
  • Crisis suit
  • Broadside
  • Feralgeist
And then like i said, I'll maybe do other odds and ends here and there.


Armies- W/L/D
Tau (2000 pt under construction: assembling & painting) 1/2/1
Space Marines 1800 Points: Dark Angels (under constructions: finish painting) 6/2/2

Sorry bud, I'm trying to enforce the 'before the 10th' rule now.  Don't keep that from holding yourself to that vow.

I know the vows aren't updated yet, I'll get to it now.  EDIT: Done.  Took me 4 days, but I got it.  Sorry, been lazy.

I also finished Ulrik.  Yay!  Pictures later...maybe.  Depends on my current level of laziness.

DONE THE SPEARMEN!  I actually had 18, not 16.

I will add a Night Goblin Boss to the list if I can.
