A CHALLENGE!

Post  nathanr on Wed May 26, 2010 11:56 am

I've got a challenge for everyone here. I thought it might be fun for everyone to paint a unit of core troops between now and the day that 8th edition comes out. As an added incentive, I will buy a pot of paint for each person who completes the challenge successfully. My only rule is that you can't use a unit that you've already started painting, it has to be completely unpainted as of now. I'm going to be painting 16 dryads.

Good luck!

Phoenix guard aren't exactly core, but I'll let it slide! New rule, if you are painting something other than core you have to paint more than the minimum requirement of models for the unit.

No my fault, I'll edit my post. I certainly have enough to paint so it's no problem.

Everyone who wants in on this challenge and my extremely generous offer of a pot of paint needs to sign up here with their name and what they will be painting by May 31st. I'll then start a thread where everyone can post WIP pictures and progress reports etc.

You can still feel free to participate in the challenge if you don't sign up by the 31st, but I won't buy you anything if you finish.

I feel kinda like cheating painting my unit of 13 skinks, so I'll paint both my 13 man units of skinks.

Knights of the Realm Carson? Are you building a Bretonnian army?

And Nathan A, lizardmen?

Sounds like there are some new armies in the works. I'm glad so many people are on board, this is getting interesting!

Alright, so far we have:

Nathan R. - 16 dryads
Pud - 15 Men at Arms
Don - 20 Archers
Carson - 6-8 Knights (if you want to make a nicely ranked unit of 9 I might have a spare knight for you)
Nathan A. - 18 Saurus
Dom - 10 Knights and/or 20 Crossbowmen (I vote you try for the "and")
Freezingoon - 26 Skinks
Andre - Arrer boyz?

Now, who is missing from the list? Come on guys, a free pot of paint for doing something you were probably going to do eventually anyway!

Looking good! I like the stripes, it gives the heraldry a quilted look which is cool.
