Welcome all to the 13th round of the unofficial Dakka painting challenge, the first in a new and improved rotation of challenges that will run over the next 12 months! It's been a hell of a good run on these challenges for the first year of running them, and once the last results are in for February all manner of awards, retrospectives and general internet nerd partying will happen! For this month, though, we're going back to where it all began, the Space Marines!

That doesn't just mean you are limited to Adeptus Astartes and their traitor kin, though! Last time, we had all manner of creative entries, from Orks in looted Power Armour to a baffled squad of US Marines that found themselves IN SPAAAACE... and such outside the box thinking is definitely encouraged this time round. Equally, if you do want to just paint up any kind of 40k Marine, be they Chapter or Legion, Loyalist, Traitor or Renegade, Scout or Terminator, Tactical Marine or Chapter Master, then go for it!


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 multiple 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.


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

1st to the 31st January? I'm assuming you mean March?

It's my birthday today and I'm expecting some kind of reinforcements to my growing mountain of boxes of unbuilt/unpainted Space Marines later this afternoon so I suppose today is the ideal time to finally try my hand at joining one of these comps I've loved watching over the last year.

I'll decide on the model(or 5) but at the moment I'm thinking of the Capt Agemman/Terminator Captain from the Start Collecting Space Marines Box if I'm brave enough.

Cheers Deadshot, I love the profile pic myself

As far the Capt(which I will probably keep named as Agemman even though I'm trying to build Galenus' 5th) the only issue with me picking it is that I have a lack of confidence in my abilities to make him look decent/acceptable.

Precisely! Don't know what they're all on about!

On the other hand, sorry folks, brainfart moment and/or time warp occurred! All fixed now!

If you think I gothrough and rehost everyone's pics each month, you're giving me far too much credit! I just copy whatever link people post, and for those that just attach the pics directly to a post, IMG tags all round!

Crikey, a year!

This is probably the fastest I've seen this topic fill up, as well.

I don't have anything I could enter and actually finish. My only space marines are Horus, Fulgrim and Eidolon, and I am not going to get one of them done with how March is looking for me. I've got 4-5 days free, and a WHW tourney in April, so I'll be finishing my IG.

Good luck guys, looking forward to seeing a rainbow of marines.

Well, I've got no Spess Mehreens to paint this month.

I've improved quite drastically, I think. Hell, back in the first ever challenge, I did not know how to thin my paints. And now, I've done much better.

Good luck to everyone.

Hooray for honorable mentions! I feel like my attempt was a bit lacking, as they still looked fairly close to regular Cadians, but I really hope this idea gains some traction with more skilled painters/converters. Really helps diversify the list of entries.

This is going to sound stupid, but...

I'm done! No, this isn't a fix, the mini was genuinely painted today, he's been sitting for so long waiting for this challenge and I've been waiting to get to grips with him, so the inspiration was there from the word go!


Not final pics, as obviously I'm over the 5-shot limit, but there he is! Any thoughts welcome!
