That's right folks, rumour has it we are getting an updated codex and some new shiny in the next month or so.

According to the rumourmongers, who also didn't see GK coming down the turnpike.

So, right now, you are all staring at your hobby desks and shelves and thinking, "Hmmm, what should I paint for the new codex?  One of these?  Nah, they might get nerfed.  Or how about some of those, they should get a nice boost?"

Aren't you?

The answer is, paint it all!!!  That's right right, throw caution to the wind and paint everything in your DE closet.  The bonus is, you will then have your desk clear for the new shiny when it arrives.  See, strategic thinking right there.

Make a vow, or make it a threat, and tell us what you hope to achieve during September.  Paint it, slice it, convert it, ..... anything and everything.  Everyone who succeeds in their daring devil-do will get their name highlighted in TDC's highly-coveted-but-not-so-visible Commorraghan purpleTM!


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

Lord Alino - paint 1 Baneblade.

Count Adhemar - paint 5 Eldar Dark Reapers and 1 Exarch.  Paint 3 Broadside battlesuits.

Evil Space Elves - paint for 30K World Eaters 1 Land Raider, assemble 1 Spartan, and paint 1 10-man Assault Squad.  And perhaps something from our new codex!  And paint 5 Crimson Fist Terminators, 1 CF Terminator Captain, and 1 CF Marine with Flamer.

Crazy Irish - finish 4 Scourges, paint 10 Wracks, finish 5 PH EC Veterans, finish 8 Wyches, and put some more color on 1 PH EC Standard bearer.

Dragontree - paint 5 Night Lords Havocs, 2 Night Lords plasma gun-wielding Marines, and 1 Night Lords Predator.

Mr Believer - paint 2 Venoms, and assemble 1 Ravager.

Flakmonkey - modify 1 Farseer helm to Spiritseer helm+paint it , paint 1 helmet-less eldar head just in case Spiritseer helm conversion is ruined, finish 1 Venom and paint 1 Succubus with twin agonisers, and 1 Culexus Assassin.

[/color]

Wait.... I'm painting a baneblade.

Mostly a mop-up of the stuff I didn't get done last month:

30K World Eaters:
-Paint Land Raider
-Assemble Spartan
-10 man Assault Squad

If the codex does drop this month:
-Something new and awesome! (Hopefully a cool new coven model)

If the standard version of a land raider would be made by Greeks, then the Spartans would produce the Spartan. ;-) seriously, it's the big bad ass transport version of the land raider.

My monthly vow is,
- Finnish my 4 scourges
- paint my 10 wraks
- finish my 5 PH EC Vets
- finish my 8some wyches
- put some more color on my PH EC Standard bearer

I guess in that order.

5 night lords havocs

2 night lord plasma gun wielding marines

1 night lord predator


I have injured my leg so I am unable to go running for a couple of weeks so theoretically this should leave me plenty of time to do this... Want to get all my CSM out of the way ready for Deldar!!!

Two Venoms to paint. Two Venoms and a Ravager to assemble and paint turned out to be too ambitious last month!

5 Terminators
1 Terminator Captain
1 Marine with Flamer

The Dark Reapers are coming along surprisingly quickly so might add something further to the vow for this month. Watch this space!

Sorry Gobsmakked, think my post might have been a bit misleading there - my aim this month is just to paint two Venoms, which are the ones I only managed to assemble last month Smile

WIP pic for the first 7 models of the assault squad:

Really need to wrap this unit up by Wednesday at the latest to make sure those Crimson Fist models are ready for the tournament Saturday. It will be tight.

ESE - I hate that your WIP shots are better than my finished ones! Bloomin' lovely stuff.

Dark Reapers finished one week into the month so I'm going to add 3 Tau Broadsides to the vow.

EDIT - Pics of the Reapers

You went with blue hair Count. Very nice.

XD Did you see any gore? They are World Eaters, so no, they are not yet finished ;-)

No blood yet, distracted by trying to get the CF's ready for the Mirror Match tournament Saturday. I've had this Terminator captain model in the inventory for well over a decade. Magnetized the storm bolter(taken from FW Cataphractii combi bolter) for like no reason. I'm kinda known for magnetizing everything for the sake of magnetizing.

Shoulder pad? Magnetize.
Front and back Torso section? Magnetize
Head? Take a guess.

So, finished up my Venom. No WiP pics though. Had to paint canopy, weapon mounts and started out with only a red basecoat, so had ink it and do all the edging and highlights. After seeing other peoples stuff, I do feel somewhat outclassed in the painting department. But I want that purple font.

Also, I couldn't find the 2nd splinter cannon mount, so that makes this one of the only Venoms in all of Commorragh with splinter rifles.
