PostSubject: The Monthly Vow - July - summer holidays, lots of time for painting!   Mon 2 Jul - 14:33

OK, so hockey and soccer are done, and basketball. So, we should be able to get plenty of painting done this month.

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! ).

This is a great way to motivate yourself and other denizens, or to just humiliate yourself a bit more publicly ....... and at the end, you will have a new, tabletop-ready piece or unit ready to pillage and plunder with in 6th edition.

Beginning this month, as an extra incentive to participants and also to provide a simple summary for voyeurs, I will record each denizen's pledge and then mark them off in some spiffy, yet-to-be-determined manner when they complete it.


Denizens and their vows for the month of July (completed in purple):
____________________________________________________________________


Cavash - paint a Kabalite Warrior squad

Allandrel - paint a squad of 10 Kabalite Warriors

Siticus the Ancient - paint 13 members of Ashborn Warband

Evil Space Elves - 1 Masters thesis (on how not to delete posts), detail 3 Hellions, bases and tribal designs on 14 Hellions, and convert an allied Corsair Prince/Autarch.

Count Adhemar - convert and paint a Beastmaster unit consisting of 4 Beastmasters, 4 Razorwing Flocks, and 5 (maybe 10) Khymerae. Perhaps also a Baron conversion. Become a Dad!!!

Plague - finish painting 40 Wyches, and assemble 10 Hellions, 4 Khymera, 5 Razorwing Flocks, and 3 Beast Masters.

KnightSeerValkia - paint 1 squad of Kabalite Warriors and 1 squad of Wyches, and time permitting, paint/assemble a HQ choice.

Sendreavus - finish a 10-Wyche squad, a Venom, a Ravager, 10 Warriors, a Raider and an Archon.

I, Cavash, vow to paint my latest Warrior squad to the highest standard that I possibly can. Unfortunately, I have less than a week to finish them until I disappear for a while, but it should be manageable.

I vow to complete my ten-man warrior squad that currently consists of a final test model (that I am very happy with!) and nine fully modeled and painted bases.

I vow to finish the following:
1. My Masters thesis Mad
2. The details on the last three Hellions, the bases on all 14 in the unit, and the teal tribal designs on all of the boards.
3. Convert my allied Corsair Prince/Autarch. The LFGS is starting a Wednesday night escalation league. If they allow FW lists I will be busting out a Corsair army this summer!!! Just ordered some upgrade parts for the infantry and will butchering a Yriel model for my prince.

I vow to convert and paint my Beastmaster unit, consisting of:

4 Beastmasters made from converted Hellions (just need to find some decent heads to use)
2 Ground-based Razorwing Flocks made from the old metal Tyranid Ripper Swarm models
2 Clawed Fiends using (very, very) old Ambull models
5 Khymerae made from Fenrisian wolves

Might try a Baron conversion from the remaining Hellion in the box but can't guarantee that will be included in the vow.

* Paint 1 Squad of Kabalite Warriors
* Paint 1 Squad of Wyches
* IF I have time, paint/assemble an HQ choice

Oh dear God, he really is going to publicly shame us! I'm getting back to those Hellions straight away before I end up on a Haemonculus' table somewhere silent

Details of the three Hellions completed!

Now I just have to do all of the bases and tribal designs on these:

And cut this guys head off...

I'm not going to show what a trainwreck my Masters thesis is right now...

Wow, great Hellions, ESE.

Out of curiosity, what are you doing a Masters in?

Cool, good luck with it and don't get too distracted by the DEldar on your shelf, I say that, but I do want to see your models finished, of course. Smile

Those hellions look fantastic! With Baron leading them, it's quite a breathtaking sight.

Good luck on the thesis!

On the advice of the esteemed members of this forum I'm ditching the Clawed Fiends from my Beastmaster unit. I will exchange these for 2 more Razorwing Flocks and might add another 5 Khymerae in (the first 5 are completed other than bases so pics to follow soon).

Only four more sleeps 'til the end of the month. Perhaps I need to break out the #3 Aggie to help speed things along, hmmmm?

Well, just about made it in time! In my defense, having a newborn baby in the house seriously restricts your available painting time.












I'm happy with the beasts. I didn't want to convert my wolves as the background for my Kabal features wolves fairly heavily so I just wanted them to count as Khymerae but be unmistakably wolven. The old metal Rippers also do a fairly good job filling in for Razorwing flocks and I can well imagine them tearing their prey to shreds in the same way as the birds would.

My only issue is the Beastmasters themselves. Whilst I'm happy with the way they turned out, I'm only happy with them as Hellions rather than Beastmasters. I think I'm going to get some more and build a proper Hellion unit for them to join and I'm leaning towards Cold One Knights for replacement Beastmasters. That will have to wait a while though as my Ravagers are next on my list, to help get my army onto the table sooner rather than later.
