Welcome to the 14th Unofficial Painting Challenge here on Dakka! This month is the second in the 2016/17 round, so a perfect opportunity to join in and start racking up points early on!

The theme for this month's challenge is The Relic, which covers pretty much anything old and/or holy, from a war priest of Sigmar to a Space Marine Captain carrying one of his Chapter's ancient weapons, from a Malifaux Gremlin who's just stumblekd across some old and priceless loot to a crusading band of holy knights (of the historical, Bretonnian or Panoceanian variety, or any other version of the age-old theme)


How To Enter
- You may enter up to 5 MODELS as a SINGLE ENTRY, and are permitted one entry per member per month. If you enter multiple models, they should ideally be related in some way, such as part of the same squad, unit or scene if you are doing a diorama
- You MUST post a 'proof' picture of your entry in the thread of the state it was in before you started working on it; this must be either unassembled, unpainted, primed or coated a single colour. Entries that do not submit a valid Proof Picture will not be eligible for voting.
- After this, you may post WIP pictures in this thread and your own if you wish, and on completing the entry, you may post up to 5 final pictures IN THIS THREAD that will then be used for voting. Please note that pictures in a montage or collage picture will be considered individual images for this purpose, so while these types of presentation are certainly acceptable, please keep the image limit in mind when compiling them. For example, a collage of 4 images and one separate image would count as your 5 picture allowance.


So What Do I Win?
- Points... and points mean... bragging rights for the next month Following the vote, points will be awarded to every entrant. This year, the Points you receive will be equal to the Percentage of Votes your entry receives in the final Voting thread; if you get 10%, you get 10 points, if you get 6% you get 6 points, so on and so forth.

These points will be used to form a league table, which will be updated month on month as the results come in.


How Long Do I Have?
This challenge begins 1st April and will end at midnight GMT on the 30th April. After this, I shall compile the finished entries into a new thread, and voting will run for 5 days.

First deployed in 430AR, the Berserker is the oldest Warjack model still in use. Obsolete by modern standards, it has continuously prowled the battlefields of Immoren for well over a century. If anything, while this relic of an earlier age is lacking in both the armor and the armament of its modern brothers, and age has made its cortex brittle - it makes up for this shortcomings through pure ferocity in battle.

I'm afraid I can't allow you to enter that mini then. It's great, and I recall being very impressed with it when you posted it a while back, but the challenges are for minis painted entirely within the month. Sorry, and please feel free to enter another model!

Decisions decisions. Part of me wants to paint up some capheract terminator armor from 30k, as such a ancient and venerable suit is a relic in it’s own right. The other part of me wants to drag out an actual relic; some old chunk of RT-era lead.

I guess I’ll just poke around the basement and see what grabs me.

My project this month is - as I said in the poll - a Warbos in MegaArmour. It´s coming along quite well and only needs the left leg to be done. To fit the theme, I´ll ad some gifts from Mork and Gork - they are something like holy to Orks so... it fits god damn it!!!

Proof will follow as soon as I finished the leg and rivets...

If not, I'm going to have to finish assembling my Lonely Tree.
