Welcome to the 10th (10th! Wow, I never expected this idea to take off like it has done!) Unofficial Dakka Painting Challenge! For those who have not followed any previous challenges, this is a friendly competition for painters of all skill levels and experience, and anyone on Dakka is welcome to join in.

This month, things are a little different; as I'm sure many of you will be rather busy over the coming month, and because I wanted something a special for our final challenge of 2015, there is no theme this month! Instead, so long as it meets the rules below, you can enter any mini or minis you like! To send the year out with a bang, I encourage everyone to bring their A game here and really show off what you can do (and if you've participated in several of these challenges, how much you've improved, because every month the quality of entries seems to get higher and higher!).

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.


So What Do I Win?
- Points... and points mean... bragging rights for the next month Following the vote, points will be awarded for the following:

1st Place: 10 points
2nd Place: 8 points
3rd Place: 5 points
Non-placing Entrants: 1 point

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 December and will end at midnight GMT on the 31st December. After this, I shall compile the finished entries into a new thread, and voting will run for 5 days.


Good luck, have fun, and dare I say it, merry Christmas!

I'll enter something. I am undecided on what ( I have a few ideas, but am waiting on stuff to arrive), and whether I will have time to do it. But i'll try to commit.

Proof pics will come when I work out my entry.

Kind of planning a diorama, but not sure how many models will go on, I think it would be 6 or 7 which would break the rules.

I am also proverbially 'in', and this time, there's no waiting for models involved; all the choices I have are set out assembled on my shelf crying out 'Paint us! Have pity! It's Christmas!'

Just need to get my last essay finished up and then I'll be able to jump in, either with my last Kabuki Primarch (Lorgar), my converted BaC Contemptor or one of the characters from the same set.

I'll throw my hat in the ring, and will try to paint up a Tactical Marine Sergeant/Veteran Sergeant for my Blood Angels.

Merry Christmas indeed also!

Proof pictures will be added to this post later once I'm home and can compile the bits together, or just take pictures of the Blood Angels tactical squad sprue I've got sitting on my painting desk.

Edit: Proof Pic added! Not shown: Combi-weapon, likely to be a Combi-flamer or Combi-melta (Final choice to be determined, not sure which I'll decide to use. But all other bits are present).



Paradigm, if I need to update with another proof picture after I get the bit clipped off of the sprue for the combi-weapon, let me know.

Good luck everyone! Take it easy.

Edit: Changing my entry to a Death Company Marine on 12/12/2015.

Can I enter something that I finished the scenic base for about 10pm yesterday? I have pics that prove it wasn't painted before then, as I was taking step by step tutorials (mud). I've not painted or assembled the model itself.
I have to finish it by Friday either way, I just figure it's good use of a fun kit.

Go for it! It's generally the mini rather than the base that ought to be unpainted.

I've been looking forward to this one since I did my first challenge lol. I will be doing a Ork Santa Claws project of some sort hopefully I can get it all made and painted in time, proof to follow.

Question, If I was do make an Sleigh pulled by wolves do the wolves/reindeer count towards the model limit? I'm hoping not otherwise there won't be any helpers for Santa >_<

Glad to have you with us lipsdapips and welcome.

Custom driver cast and finally pulled properly. Just waiting on the magnets, and casting the gunner at the moment.

Bad news is I bought tiny magnets and they don't hold up a jeep. Good news is Januine now has some tiny magnets in his pile of crap I'm sending.
