Army Painting Challenge - January 2014
 
A new year and a new thread.

I think its high time for another double entry month.

If you enter 2 units you can 'buy' back one of you 'Too much life' cards. If you have not used any then entering 2 units has not benefit other than getting your army done quicker.

Happy new year everyone!!

As January is normally quiet on the social front I'm going to try an ambitious effort! I've had a Forgeworld Bloodthirster sat around for about 18 months so it's time he got painted! Mostly assembled him yesterday so here's a before photo.

Excellent. I might get back to my Tau after putting them on the backburner to paint an entire Bolt Action force consisting of 11 units in the space of 6 weeks. I'll re-enter the fire warriors I was going to do for November, and maybe something a bit bigger. Photos to follow.

EDIT: These guys will get a bang of the brush at last. Still not sure what the second unit will be.

Question!? Is this the new starting all over in 2014 or is the end date for the 2013 sometime later?

This challenge goes on until May as far as I remember.

As Khornes Fist said this is the end of the 2013 challenge. I think I will call the next challenge something different so its easier to follow :grin:

I'll make an announcement nearer the time when I start the next one.

It was fun to have a month off, but it's high time to get back to painting. I might do a double-entry to make up for December, but I might not have the time.

Entry to follow soon.

EDIT: Or, as I seem to be quite productive today, here's the first entry. High Elf mage on steed. If I can get through this by about the 10th, I might even manage to have my Phoenix being entered this month. Exciting, no?

Also, please excuse the bad undercoat. I believe the effect is called 'paint can running on empty'.

Count me in when you do, H. And I'll try to complete more than one unit this time! :blush:

GrimzagGorwazza 01-05-14 10:42 PM

A double month....but you won't let me benefit from an additional unit. Well i'm gonna do it anyway, you don't own me, i'm not a part of your system. (Grimzag throws a muffin on the ground and stomps off)

Units for this month, as i've banned myself from painting greenskins this year, will be a Vindicator and Captain for my white panther space marines.

Vindi: Not even assembled yet

Aiming to complete these two units this month: Vindicator and 10 Daemonettes.

Upside-down when I upload it to imgur but not when I view it in my computer library. Odd. I would suspect it has something to do with how I was holding the iPhone when I took it...

KjellThorngaard 01-08-14 03:44 PM

I am going to try for a twofer now that the holidays are over.

First up- 10 more Sword Masters:

And here I have that praetorian squad. Two five man Purifier teams, which I plan to field as one 10 man team in a landraider redeemer. Unsure if I'm going to be able to get the warriors done this month though, sadly.

kickboxerdog 01-22-14 06:40 PM

GrimzagGorwazza 01-22-14 11:18 PM

Looking good honks, my vote is for adding whirlygit blades gubbins to the wheels. Fer choppin shins and weelz and stuff.

Edit: just realised that my phone auto completes whirly to whirlygit.
