Paint + Assemble:
20 Clanrats
1 Ratogre [already started]
12 Slaves [Partly done]
1 Gutter runner [Partly done]
4 Plague monks


This should finish off a mass of incomplete models in my collection, and leave me with [*Ghasp*] no unpainted clanrats [for now, at least...]

It's a bigger vow than january, mainly because I'm getting back into a determined 'vibe' of painting. I also have a half-term the week after next, during which I may invite a couple of friends over, to have our own little painting challenge/marathon...

Good luck to you all!

Back to retirement!

My vow for February (why do I always have trouble spelling that?!?) is to simply sontinue working on my Chaos Orcs. Im simply putting as much time and effort into them as is possible in order to complete as much as possible. With almost all of my available conversion work done, I should be getting alot of painting done this month!! ^_^

One conversion Im going out of my way to finish is a unit standard bearer who has a caged High Elf as his standard!!

Good luck all!

First of all I have seen but not participated in the monthly challenges. This month I will though. Although it wont be much, Ill try to challenge myself.

I have to know something though. You guys do this every month and the lists are not minuscule. Do you really have this many models and your adding to them? Are these repaints, touch ups, or new models right from the box?

Anyway, cant wait to see them! Now for my vow.

20 Clanrats (started)

5 PWG

5 Swarms

1 Partridge in a pear tree (if I can get one)

No making jokes about my uber small list. Good Luck to all of us!

*chuckles* Generally, only a few manage to complete their vows, however, I believe the number succeeding is increasing of late...

Most stuff appears to be thing being painted entireley, with things being 'touched up' clearly labelled as such..

But, yeah, most people get a lot done in a month. I may find some time tomorrow and take a picture of the current state of the stuff in my vow... And then later take comparison pictures as the month goes by...

[Mutate] By the horned one, it's been a long hard slog, but I've completed 5 clanrats!

February starts well! ^_^ [/color]

That makes me feel better. I just finished 5 Clanrats on my spiffy new scratch built 20mm x 100mm base and it took me over 5 hours. Maybe people should vow less so they can get it done. Ive had these stinking little rats for over 4 years at least. I only play the game about two times a year and then its only at home. Usually not much is painted when we play a game.

I have always wanted to join in, but this time i actually did. Its great to have a goal and get excited about painting minis "with" other people. Otherwise all I can really do is stare at the endless hordes of unpainted minis.

5 down, 25 to go.....

Alrighty put me down as well, though it's been a while so I'm gonna take it a bit slow:

1 Chieftain
1 General (Adonidus)
1 Brood Lord
3 Tyranid Warriors

Only one Skaven model, but the other ones have been waiting around for a while now

I remember my january, december and november vows. I don't remember if I made a really small one in October (I think I did, but it was finish touches on 3 models)

The point is: perfect so far!

That's what I get for only vowing what I know I can finish :P

So my vows for this month...
well for the warbands, I need to finish my monument and that covers it, the rest is all already done. So:

-paint 2 pikeskavens (1 is already WIP)
-finish the skaven monument (assemble then touch-ups)
-bonus point if I manage to paint 2 jezzails in an afternoon challenge (final touches can be done later)

I'm letting you all know in advance that if I don't manage to accomplish my meager vow, I'm not afraid to claim treachery.

5 Poisoned Wind Globadiers --> Clean, assemble, and prime
1 Warplock Jezzail --> Finish greenstuff work
8 Night Runners with Slings--> Paint
3 Night Runners with Throwing Stars --> Paint

I'm starting small because I've never done this before, and I'd like to be successful in my first attempt. If anyone makes fun of me for the sub-20 models I'm vowing to work on, I've got some cookies that I'd love to share with you.
