The 7th Heresy Online Army Painting Challenge.
 

Greetings you bunch of reprobates and welcome to the 7th Hunger....... What? Oh, sorry......


Who missed me then? :laugh:

By my reckoning this is the 7th APC - and the third one I've run - so let's get down to business shall we?
Same script as previous years in that you may have a primary army and an optional secondary army. If you are starting a brand new primary or secondary army then you must complete enough units to make it game legal.

Terrain is allowed as a monthly entry, although this can be a maximum of twice throughout the APC. You will also still receive a pair of "Real Life" tickets that enable you to essentially claim a 'free' month in the APC. Please don't abuse them or I'll send @Nordicus around to beat you up with wet celery! :laugh:
I will be including just one of the ever popular Double Month entries as well which will more than likely be January seeing as a lot of us will probably have been on the sauce throughout December.......

The requirement as ever is to have at least ten completed units by the end of the APC.

If you wish to enter, then please post below with what army you'll be painting up. The APC will begin on the 1st October 2016.

Here we go then!

I'll be trying - and failing - to complete the APC again this year with Blitzkrieg Germans for Bolt Action.

I am going to join in with my Ultramarines and guard this time I will finish it!

Yay! Glad to see this is happening again. I'm going to enter, just let me decide which of my many ongoing projects will take centre stage this year.

Just a rules question: I have base coated my army with Chaos Black spray (done back in March), and I tend to paint slowly, but around three to two different units at the same time. So if i start, for example, two units in October that is base coated with Chaos Black, finish one in October and one November, do they both count or do I need to start and finish the unit in the same month?
Also is it ok that they are base coated already?

Yay!
As to armies though I'm not sure, I'm away at the moment although I'll be back in a couple of weeks. Can I make my mind up then? I'd like to dig through my minis and see what tickles my fancy.
I've painted a lot of orks, and I've still got a few to do, but I would like a change.
Hmmmmm.

Okay I'll torture myself again and say I'm in, doing Space Marines and a little Imperial Guard maybe. @Tawa , whats the craic with terrain, does it have to be store bought terrain or can it be scratch biult stuff?

With the Stormcast and Mechanicus each about 90-95% finished I think this time my Ghoul Court will be taking centre stage.

Fine by me mate as long as you give me a quick shout with your choice so I can stick it into my records :)

I'll try again this year, hopefully with better success. Militarum tempestus & Space Marines (which are converted Scion models).
