Mirror, mirror, on the wall.

Who is the weediest painter of them all?

Step right up denizens and get your name immortalised in royal purple! Make a vow about what you are going to build/paint/convert during the month of September, and then show us your progress by the end of the month with a picture.

And remember, a picture or a link to a pic here in this thread or it didn't happen!

Challenge yourself, a friend or another archon. This is a great way to motivate yourself and others, or to just humiliate yourself a bit more publicly ....... and at the end, you will have a new, tabletop-ready piece or unit ready for our shiny, new 6th edition FAQ 2.0!!! (still waiting! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad )


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


Evil Space Elves - complete a Talos and a second coven Raider, 4 Wracks, and convert and paint a new coven Venom, 2 Grotesques, and 1 Haemonculus, and 3 Reavers.

Foo - primarily 12 Reavers, 1 Razorwing and 1 monkeigh Dreadnought. Plus 10 Hellions and bases, 5 Scourges, 1 Raider, and various bases.

Count Adhemar - 2nd Ravager, 1 unit of Wyches and possibly their Venom.

Siticus the Ancient - 1 Farseer on Jetbike, and either 4 Reavers or a [color=purple]Venom or two/[color].

Gobsmakked - build and paint 15 Wracks.

It's Coven of the Ebon Sting September Twisted Evil (Okay, October would have been better with Halloween and all, but I want to finish all of my coven stuff this month!)
I vow to finish:
-Complete Talos that has been haunting my desk 75% complete for MONTHS
-Complete second coven Raider that has been 60% complete for MONTHS
-Unit of 4 Wracks
-convert and paint a new coven Venom Twisted Evil (This and the Wracks may be my Archon's challenge entry)
-Convert and paint 2 Grotesques
-Convert and paint Haemonculus
-Technically painted this month and completed last night: my "last" 3 Reavers

Things I have to work on:
-12 Reavers
-10 Hellions and bases
-5 Scourges
-Raider
-Razorwing fighter
-various bases

Pitiful human stuff:
-Dreadnought

Goals:
Assuming my 9 new Reavers arrive in the mail, I think 12 Reavers will basically keep me busy all month, and I want to finish the Dreadnought and Razorwing.

Extra credit:
Bases, Hellions or Scourges, Raider.

I'm aiming to finish off the 2nd Ravager and paint my first unit of Wyches and (hopefully) their Venom.

Gonna paint up a Farseer on Jetbike. Beyond that I'm unsure, either keep working on the four black Reavers or perhaps finish a Venom or two.

As an American during a presidential election year, I can say that I'm probably trying to hide at my painting table from all of the silly political ads Razz Power to paint from PAIN Twisted Evil

I will definitely have that Talos done in the next couple of days and need to finish that coven Raider for a tournament this Saturday.

Looks really good! I like the muted blues and greens a lot, you really pull such subtle colour schemes off.

Edit: Whoops, this should've gone in your project thread, ESE!

Nowhere near the speed ESE is going, but I've almost finished my Razorwing, working on the pilot right now:

A bit blurry, unfortunately. I need a real camera.

@Foo: your stuff is looking great!
Finished up the Venom for the Wracks:

I opted to take my time with the Haemi and will paint him up this weekend/early next week, then on to the Grotesques before the month is out.

Got my Wracks finished yesterday, plus a few extra goodies, and I am very happy with how they turned out.

Will try to get some decent pics today or tomorrow.

Sadly, it seems this is it. Between some of my parts missing for the bikes and being super-busy and lazy, I basically did one bike and the Razorwing.

Fail!

Sorry to be dragging my heels on posting the final results. RL has been crazy busy this week. I'll post a pic tonight of everything(including the unfinished Haemi-bit off more than I could chew...I think I broke a tooth or two in the process Razz )

I just realized, I actually painted more than just my jet and one bike. I'm also finishing up this piece of monkeighbusiness:

These are the two salvaged (bad cast) Grotesques and the Haemonculus. Didn't get the Haemi done, but I'm pretty happy with all of the Coven stuff that I was able to finish.The Monthly Vow - September - What's left in your bitz box? 2012-10-03_20-18-10_471

More pics are in my project log. My painting vow for September was 15 Wracks, but I also finished Urien, a new Haemie and 3 old ones.

Here's the whole gang.
