The hockey playoffs will be finished next week, so there's no excuse not to get some decent work done in June.

So what you going to build/paint/convert this month?

Make a vow and then at the end of the month, show us your progress with a picture ...... (remember, a picture or a link here in this thread or it didn't happen! Evil or Very Mad ).

This is a great way to motivate yourself and others, or just humiliate yourself a bit more publicly ....... and at the end, you will have a new, tabletop-ready piece or unit ready to cause mischief with against the accursed mon-keigh Very Happy

************

And I am going to kick off this month with a promise to finish one of the new Ork Bommerz - build it, konvert it and paint it. Bloo of course, 'cos dat's only proppa.

I am remaining faithful to the True Kin you understand, this is simply a convenient way to practice and hone my flyer painting skills before the official Void Raven model arrives in August, as our fearless leader Sky has promised Very Happy

I vow to finish updating the basecoats of my troops and skimmers, and to detail and base the troops to boot. That's 20 Warriors, 4 Venoms, 3 Raiders, 2 Ravagers, 2 Razorwings. Oh, and magnetize the dang Ravagers for transport and so I can use as Raiders more easily.

That's 1 squad and 3 skimmers per week, which is why I won't vow to detail the skimmers. I'm still cutting my teeth on this whole painting thing!

I vow to finish my three Reavers and perhaps start my first Raider. I have to keep it simple. So much to do. Sad

I vow to finish my Razorwing.

I gave myself a fair bit to do last month, and then I folishly purchased a Razorwing, then got distracted by other things, so I vow to finish my Razorwing!

(If I get distracted again, pleases, somebody, slap me with a wet Salmon.)

I think that a team from So-Cal most-likely winning the cup is why the Mayan calender really ends in 2012 Razz

A bit busy this month with my teaching schedule ending and Master's thesis writing in full swing, but I should be able to get the following done:
-Finish the last of the Hellion gang(5 models)
-Start whatever I will be painting for the 4th round of the Archon's Challenge
-I might take a crack at painting a bit more on the Ravager that has been haunting my desk for months now, OR I might start modeling my Incubi Venom.
-Actually play a game now that I might have an actual day to play this month cheers

Right, I got off to a good start with my Razorwing at the begining of the month. It was a large, exciting model that I just couldn't wait to paint. I didn't complete it fully, but I thought I'd like to spread out the jo of painting it... if you believe that exuse. Razz


Oh, and great job with your fliers, byt the way, Gob.

Thank you very much Cavash. I really like the colour scheme on your Razorwing, looking forward to seeing it finished.

Thanks Gob. I painted it the way I paint everything, drybrushing and washes. It should, hopefuly, be finished by the end of the week.

Ha ha...magnetizing. I haven't gone back to using Ravagers yet, so I didn't get around to it. My vehicle plans also changed, I basecoated everything in bright green and black, but a friendly GW employee showed me a technique to get some really cool gradients, so I'm doing that now. The base is actually a return to my original army shade from 3rd Edition, 10 years ago. Caliban Green, known back then as Dark Angels Green! My Warriors are finished, though I forgot to base/cleanup a solid 10. I blame being distracted by my Wyches and Incubi, as well as some 6mm minis.
