Default April Painting Deathmatch - Squad/Regiment

Hello everyone! Welcome to the thread for the

Rules

  1. The category is decided upon and posted in the Painting Deathmatch Calendar. This month's category is:
    • Squad/Regiment - Any squad or regiment from any company.*
  2. Only models that are painted wholly within the month are eligible to enter (i.e. unpainted or only primed at the start of the month). Entrants are not required to post a photograph of the model before painting. If you have a question as to whether or not your model qualifies, please feel free to post in this thread.
  3. You may join the painting deathmatch in progress at any time, but must submit photographs of the completed miniature by midnight GMT, 30 April 2014. WIP images are welcomed and encouraged.
  4. Miniatures that are completed in time will be eligible to win the deathmatch. The deathmatch winner will be decided in a separate voting thread by the Heresy Online community. Votes should be cast not simply on painting skill, but on merit, including creativity, application of painting techniques, individual artist improvement, etc. The winner of the deathmatch will be awarded with the Mark of Slaanesh award.
  5. Winners from the previous month are able to participate in the next months painting deathmatch, but they are not eligible to win in consecutive months.

This is not the year long Army Painting Challenge run by humakt but a separate Monthly event. Though entries in one can also be entered into the other (assuming it fits into the category chosen for this deathmatch).

Good luck to all participants!

PS - If you have any feedback on the running or structure of the monthly deathmatches throughout the course of the next month, please comment in the Calendar thread as we will take into account any feedback.

This thread is slightly delayed. Any squad/regiment painted entirely in April is a valid entry, even if it was started between April 1st and today.

You know what, I'll join in with a unit of Plague Bearers I have been working on. It is my first paint job though, but meh, it will make me try harder to make them nicer haha.

I got a unit of stormboyz today before seeing this thread. I think I have my entry.

Well then, @Tugger , your Plaguebearers might shame me into doing better on the Plaguebearers I've been working on these past two days.

If you need any tips, or you're in doubt about certain aspects of those models, check out the Great Unclean One tutorial in my signature. It works excellent for Plaguebearers as well
