6 Month Painting Challenge!

Post  nathanr on Mon Sep 30, 2013 9:06 am

Tomorrow we will kick off a new painting challenge which will continue for 6 months.  There are Dragon's Den gift certs up for grabs to EVERYONE who completes it.  It works like this:

Each month you paint up one of the following:

Infantry: 10 models
Cavalry: 5 models
Monstrous Infantry: 3 models
Monstrous Cavalry: 3 models
Chariot: 1 model
Monster: 1 model
Character: 1 model

You can't paint 1 model 2 months in a row (so if you paint a character in October you can't paint a character, chariot or monster in November).

To count, models must be fully painted and based.  Deadline for getting it done is midnight on the last day of the month.  You don't have to post pictures but it would be really nice if you did.  Post your updates and pictures here please.

Participants: (Stars for completed monthly quota)

I will be painting 5 cold one knights this month. Next month I'm going to paint either 10 infantry or a character.

What if the only thing in my army is cavalry? No monsters and no foot dudes?

Then you paint 5 models per month. The restriction is on painting 1 model choices (so can't paint a mounted character two months in a row in your case).

I pretty much finished my first cold one knight last night and came up with an army color scheme at the same time. I'm going with greenish-yellow and steel armour with dark purple and black robes and cloth. The bases are dark grey and rocky with snow and will have some yellow grass tufts. It took me an evening to paint the cold one and another to paint the rider so it should be easy to finish off the 5 by the end of the month.

I'll post pictures of the first guy sometime in the next few days.

cool, looking forward to seeing your take on them. I'm working on some boarboyz tonight. I plan to use a unit of 9+hero for this league.

I'm actually going to be painting some ogres instead. Have a whole pile of Mantic ogres, so I'll try to get together a small army of them by the time this challenge is done. I'm tired of painting blue. Razz

what are thoughts on the mantic ogres vs the gw ones? I like the looks of them on screen but havn't seen them for reals yet. I have a bunch of the mantic zombies and they are very good.

I love them. Just different styles though - the GW ones are pretty much the same price and are nice models too. I like the more 'classic' ogre size that they are.

If you don't like restic, you won't like them obviously. There's more variety available for GW ogres too (mantic only has 3 bodies, 4-5 heads, 2 handweapons, 1 shield, 2 GW arms, 1 blunderbuss arms and 1 crossbow arms so far).

But they look great, and I actually like restic a lot - tougher to take off mold lines, but you can repose and ensure perfect joints with hot water.

I have a few fun ideas for counts-as versions of various units.

Might pick up a bunch of these as gnoblars for the army too:

I'm far from settled, but I'm considering painting them like the old Chaos All-Stars blood bowl team. Razz

that would look pretty cool actually, I like both versions but for some reason I really like the mantic ones.

Less than 2 weeks left! How's everyone doing with the challenge? I managed to finish off my first 5 cold one knights last night so I'm done this month's quota! I'll try to take some pictures tonight. Next month I'm going to paint up either a chariot or 5 dark riders.

Here are the first 5 cold one knights. There will be another 5 in a second rank once the unit is complete.







I'm not sure how I'm going to paint the skin on this army, it's a tossup between the usual pale skin or something more like drow's dark skin. Luckily I won't have to really decide that until I get to the warlocks in the army.

Very, very nice Nathan. Quite impressed indeed. If you keep this up that would certainly be an army that could win an award.

yeah, excellent job. I like how the lances look as if they are being lowered for the charge, very dynamic.

I'm in. I usually hate challenges and painting, but I need to overcome my slovenly ways.
I'm going to get done my dark elf character this month- in the next few days.
