Welcome to the 44th round of the Unofficial Painting Challenge! For the unfamiliar, the challenge is a friendly competition open to any Dakka members, whether you're painting your first model or your 1001st! The more rounds you enter, the more points you accrue based on a public vote, and these are tracked in a League Table over the course of the year.

This month, we come round again to the classic October theme of all things spooky and scary. Whether that's creeping dread or in-your-face horror, subtle or overt, the scarier the better for this Halloween round!


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 6 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 5 images and one separate image would count as your 6 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 of October and will end at midnight UK time on the 31st of October. After this, I shall compile the finished entries into a new thread, and voting will run for 5 days.

Hrm, I've got a plan that almost fits the theme, but not exactly... It's more of a 'halloween costume' level of scary rather than actual scary. I guess to the wee little yoots and snotlings it might be scary though .

What's spookier than Maugan Ra, Harvester of Souls? I have a busy October, but I know I can get at least one model done before the month is through. I might increase his base size a little.

Well... It's not scary. It's not spooky. It's not a skeleton.

It's an Imperial Fists Captain with Storm Bolter and Chainsword! The most terrifying thing any Heretic could see shortly before being demised forcibly. Also painting yellow is scary. I am afraid. I'm very afraid.

Side note: Will use better camera for later shots. I promise that grey blob is a Captain.

I'll throw my Triarch Stalker into the contest this month. A giant Egyptian Death Robot Spider. Not much out there that's spookier than that. Proof pic when I get home.

Sure, I'll throw my hat in the ring - I'll enter a chaos spawn. A currently very WIP chaos spawn. Hopefully it's not too far ahead in the making process to be entered?



Note: Final pics will be taken with a better camera, better lighting situation, and a background that isn't my messy workstation.

I have an arrangement that nearly fits the subject, however not precisely... It's all the more a 'halloween ensemble' level of terrifying instead of real unnerving. I figure to the small little yoots and snotlings it may be frightening however

Popped that Cap off his base to spruce it up a bit. Now just a lil GS and I'll be ready to prime.

That sort of thing is absolutely appropriate for this round. We always get a few 'costume' entries in the Halloween round and they're always great.

Perth, Western Australia

so I totally spaced out on this the past couple of months, but I think I might have a go at this one - hopefully I'll be able to get it done before I get hopelessly distracted by the impending new ork stuff

...anyway, here's my proof pic...Horticulus Slimux...I've had this model sitting around for...oof...quite a while now I think about it...grabbed it off an ebay box-splitter, from the blightwar box, before he was available separately ...anyway, it seems fitting to me, it's always given me a bit of a Tim Burton vibe, with it's fantastical storybook-esque cheerful spookiness


...it's good to be green!

Sitting down for a pre-hobby smoke. Going to do the pumpkin.

Initially I was just going to do the skull pile base and then I realized the backside of the base looked rather bare. I was going to make a simple plant with wire and flock but then decided to try making leaves. Then I realized I had room for a jack o lantern. That's probably within the bounds of my experience with green stuff! So away we go. Don't expect anything too fancy.

Also I've decided this guy is going to be 6th Company since their trim is orange.

Also that is a sick Slaanesh Demon. It's probably going to win.
