January Painting Deathmatch: Free for All




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:
    • Free for All
  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, 31 January 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 run by Boc. 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.

Haha it does say november. I backing and out and coming back in because I thought I kept getting sent to the wrong page.

Now that aside. I will start with a classic, Kharn the Betrayer. I have an old metal Kharn I've been meaning to paint up to lead my 'zerkers and today I found this. Khorne demands his champion!

I don't have a picture but I'm sure that we all know what Kharn looks like.

I will be entering my new Devastator Sergeant (as long as its legal, if not please let me know Dave) for this month. I should be able to get a little better results with a dedicated area :p
That would just be a "single miniature" like I'm doing :good:

Fingers crossed I get my Techmarine w/servo harness in time for this. Or even my white primer so I can take on my first IF marines.

Can I enter a model that I painted this month, but before I was aware of the contest? I posted my Illic Nightspear in the modellong section. I would post a pic again but on my phone it takes like an hour to manually type the URL of a jpg from Facebook.

The competition started on 1st January, even though the thread went up a few days later, so:

If you did all the painting this month it is eligible to enter.

Mine is a pretty bog standard Legion Assault Squad for my Emperor's Children, the second half of two.

Here are them all base-coated. Can you believe this took me hours to do between the primer and then Abaddon Black over the top for a smooth coat to start with?
