Darn, I got like half (4) of my Plague Marines finished this month, but I guess I'll have to paint something else instead for this... Perhaps some Ravenwing guys..?

Just to clarify, does an Apothecarion Detatchment count as a squad/regiment? Because, technically they can consist of 1 Apothercary...

Just thought I'd ask. If not, then it'll be the Heavy Weapons teams!

My contribution to the Renegades saga. Check it out

My growing IIIrd legion stuff:

17th Millenial (Homebrew Fluff) - "Children of the Emperor, death to his foes!" (Project Log)

Also my 30k tacticas, for those of you interested:

I think this goes against the spirit of the competition, whilst perhaps being "technically" true. I'd like to think that non-codex units would also be legal. Technically my entry is not codex-legal as all five of my terminators are carrying power swords!

I would say no. The contest doesn't say that it needs to be rules legal just that it needs to be a squad. As the dictionary definition of squad it essentially about a group of people I would say you are looking at 3 minimum. Especially as there is already a single miniature catagory.

To keep Squad/Regiment distinct from Single Miniature, Squad/Regiment must contain more than one model.

So an Apothecarion Detachment is only a valid entry if it includes at least two models.

Because more entries is good, and there are too many different rules sets with slightly different definitions of what is a squad/regiment for me to judge disputes fairly, no-one will be disqualified if their entry might not be a game-legal squad. However, if anyone tries to take advantage, I will (i) review this for the future, and (ii) probably take a Jez-like stance on anyone alleging they didn't get votes because people decided not being a dick was part of painting well.

Cool I have two Apothecaries I am awaiting from Forge World, and so I'll probably submit those as my entry this month.

Update on my guys:

No shoulder pads shown because they only have the initial highlight and look pretty boring so far. Shields are finished except for one which I need to paint the cloth on. Need to fix the highlights on the helmets since the OSL on the eyes f'ed that up pretty bad.

Think I'm pretty much done on the main bodies though.
