PostSubject: The Monthly Vow, March 2014 - Imperial Knights await the taste of our dark light   Mon Mar 03 2014, 22:51

March is here.  Already.

New IG are due next month, but in the meantime we must learn how to kill these pesky new knights with their shiny heraldry.  And the jungle drums are still bleating about some new CSM targets for us later this month!  

So, what are you going to paint this month? Moar dark light would be prudent.

Make a vow of what you hope to achieve during March and if you succeed, you will get your name highlighted in a specially-formulated Commorraghan purple, designed just for TDC!  And don't forget, we love pics, so show us your progress with some WIP pictures and then some more of your finished product.  

Cheers!


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

Gobsmakked - finish 1 Chaos Lord and 13 Chosen.

Count Adhemar - 4/9 Trueborn and Duke Sliscus.

Dragontree - 2 converted Venoms, a host of CSM as Nightlords and a Huron Blackheart conversion.  Bonus 2 squads of Wyches.

Archon Hidicul - 2 squads of 4 Blasterborn.

Evil Space Elves - base and finish painting 3 30K World Eater jetbikes, base and finish modeling WE Contemptor, and apply basecoat, complete Chaplain and Centurian conversions, and [drumroll] paint at least 1 Dark Eldar model.

Cavash - 1 High Avatar of the Pageant of Pandemonium.

Lord Alino - 1 Warhound Titan conversion.

So, I will kick off this month's pledge with my first CSM squad, which consists of one DV Chaos Lord and 13 DV Chosen. Basically primed and done in their initial coat so far.

Love all that baroque armour!

This month I are be mostly doing some Trueborn, along with a Duke Sliscus conversion. I'm aiming for 9 Trueborn + Sliscus. Mixture of Shardcarbines, Splinter Cannon and Dark Lances.

So I have finished my venoms and 20 Night lords. I have a tournament in early april that requires my list to be submitted 2 weeks yesterday so I am trying to get all my painting done before I submit a list with those models in it.

So in addition to these I am aiming to paint a huron blackheart night lord conversion, a night lords heldrake, 10 raptors, a rhino, a haemonculus and 10 wyches. So not too much.

Venoms:










And Night Lords - to date the most time I have put into any squads and I think my most improved models.

Squad of 10 in 2 shots:






A 5 man squad:




And another:




Watch this space for everything else I have to get done.... Raptors are undercoated at least!!

Completed jetbikes!



Chaplain and Centurian conversions!


Even painted some Epic-scale 30K World Eaters for the hell of it:


I'm probably going to completely paint the two HQ's before completing the base on the Contemptor and applying the basecoat.

I'm less of a tool now! (Said no-one about me ever  Razz )


A big thanks to the northern archon that sent the wreck markers (along with three others that I really need to paint!)

The Centurian just needs the gore treatment to be completely painted. I really want to gore him up tonight, but I'm going to a social gathering and probably shouldn't have a ton of fake blood splattered and staining my hands.....Then again, might make for interesting conversations?  Twisted Evil

Bit closer to the vow completion. I actually decided to fully paint the Centurian and Chaplain in addition to base coating the Contemptor.


They'll both get the gore treatment tomorrow.
This guy will get primed tomorrow:

These guys are really fun to paint!

Sooo in addition to my 20 CSM I now have 10 wyches painted up in two squads:





I painted this very quickly, partly because of time, partly because sadly the rest of my dark eldar are of a similar standard....

On the other hand I have put a crap tonne of effort into my night lords in general and into these raptors which I think has paid dividends:





And close ups of the champs:







Opinions please!


EDIT - now done my night lord conversion of Huron Blackheart and an Haemonculus to lead my dark eldar allies! Apologies for poor lighting.











AND Haemy:








Thats my March Vow over now a total of 20 CSM, 10 Raptors, 10 Wyches, 2 converted venoms, 1 Huron Blackheart conversion and 1 Hemonculus!...but still have a heldrake and a rhino to paint before the 5th of April and my tournament! Rhino is underway heldrake is awaiting primer!

Hope you guys have enjoyed them even a little bit

And we're all done!

Contemptor is basecoated and washed with quite a few highlights. I'm sure that it will get completed Saturday. A pic will be posted of course.

I think this is the first vow in far too long that I actually finished!  cheers

Got Sliscus and 5 Trueborn finished. Other 4 Trueborn are converted, primed and basecoated but no way I'll get them finished in time. Pics to follow.

I ended up painting and finishing the Contemptor completely:



I'm cheating a bit on next month's vow by getting some base colors on the Cataphractii squad that I wanted to paint. I'm thinking about touching up my coven models, adding gore, possibly painting that last coven raider(finally)

Good haul for the month, hoping to maintain momentum!
