After what I think I can fairly say was the success of the previous “Tale of Gamers Painting Challenge” that I started in mid-January until June, I’m going to launch another one that will run from July to December.
The point, once again is to go beyond the usual "painting goals for 20xx" that many of us - including myself - typically and set up a voluntary painting challenge for a bunch of us to participate in.
The point being to help focus at least some of our efforts on projects that we want to finish. With that in mind, there's no "defined" project that we all work on like Zombies or Board Games or 40k armies. We'll each set our own goal.

Criteria:
The criteria is simple. We each choose a "thing" or perhaps a couple of things to work on that can last us for approximately 6 months of painting - from January to June. That thing could be:

A specific army for any "large" system.
i.e.: Space Marines, Ogres, Orcs/Orks/Orx/Orruks, Romans, Samurai, a fleet for Halo or Dystopian Wars - or even a fleet for X-Wing if you're repainting.

A warband/team for a smaller system. (and perhaps a backup since these often tend to cap out at 16-40 models)
i.e: SAGA Normans followed by Vikings. Bloodbowl Orcs followed by Elves. A Frostgrave or Mordheim Gang followed by a different gang or even a bunch of random encounter miniatures. (Ice Spiders and shizzle)

A bunch of stuff for a specific game.
i.e.: Deathwatch: Overkill, or The Dungeon Saga box (with or without expansions) or Space Hulk or Descent or Wrath of Ashardalon or "All the Zombies in Zombicide" or "the entire Box of Zombicide" or "all of the things I own for Zombicide" or even "anything I own relating even vaguely to zombies" or "My Warhammer Quest Silver Tower Box that I just picked up." – similarly, “D&D Monsters and PCs for my campaign.” Is just as valid as “The contents of Descent 2.0.”
It could even be scenery - If you're making, say, an urban or desert, etc table and have enough stuff to paint over 6 months in discrete and meaningful chunks.

Month to Month:

Each month, participants will complete a "unit" for their chosen army/game. Complete is the key word here. You might have a unit just missing it’s standard bearer and/or leader. Paint that one or two figures – it completes the unit – that counts! You might have a couple of random painted zombies sitting around and add a few more to make them into a legal unit for your game of choice – that counts!
You can nominate it at the start or procrastinate for 3 1/2 weeks and nominate it when you're showing your "finished" pictures. There’s no requirement to show “before” photos, because as stated – the point is to finish stuff. A model might have just needed the final touch-ups for 2 months or 2 years – if this challenge helps you get that sucker done, then it’s done it’s work.

A "unit" should be theoretically legal - or at least thematically close to it
- we don't care if your Devastator Squad has only three heavy weapons, or if a guy has melta-bombs for some reason, or if only half of the Lizardmen have 2-handed weapons.

A "unit" that is “rank and file” should be at least 3 models. No upper limit
- if you wanna do 60 goblins, we're not gonna hold you back! Then again, if 10 goblins or zombies is enough for you in a month, that's cool as well.

A "unit" for a boardgame is something that you decide makes thematic sense.
- 10 Zombicide runners? Sure. 6 Fatties? Sure. A trio of Ravenloft monsters? Sure.

A "unit" can be a hero model, or a hero model with his retinue, or a monster, or a war machine.
- Marneus Calgar with or without his little gang? Sure for both. Gob-Lobber? Sure. Dragon? Sure? Army Standard Bearer? Sure. Chariot? Sure. Necromancer? Sure.

If you finish your unit, can you start another one as a stretch goal for that month? You sure bloody can!
- Especially encouraged if your unit was a smaller number or a simpler hero model. But hey, gak happens in life - as I certainly know - so there's certainly no recriminations if you get one, or three or none models painted in a given month. Having said that, if you’re probably not going to participate at all, then maybe hold off on the signup.

If you finish your entire project - particularly something like a boardgame
- you can choose to chill and take a well-deserved break - or continue by painting some similar/associated models. Like more Genestealers or Terminators or Zombies or D&D Monsters.


Very Important Stuff – to reiterate:

IT DOES NOT MATTER if you've already started the army/force/project/whatever.
IT DOES NOT MATTER if you've already half-painted all of the miniatures.
IT ONLY MATTERS that you're prompted to do some painting and get stuff finished.

The objective is simply to help motivate us all to complete those many unpainted models that we have, to support each other and perhaps some constructive advice or good-natured ribbing.
It also doesn't matter if you do a unit for this project each month and then fritter the rest of your time away on completely unrelated and random models.

If you'd like to participate, just add a post here stating what game/system/army/etc you want to focus on. If you'd like to nominate your first month's target, then feel free to do so. I'll update this post over the next few days while people rejoin, join and work out what we're going to spend time painting. Please don't just post on a lark, though - it's obviously better to have people on board for the duration rather than signing up and then never being seen again. Based on that, I reserve the right to allow late entries, remove non-participants and vet participants, etc.




We now have 34 participants, so in the interest of keeping updating this thing vaguely manageable, I've closed it, barring anyone from the first challenge that I missed, etc:

My Painting Pledge:
I had reasonable success with my plan to paint at least one Gondor and one Undear unit per month – I managed it but sometimes I only got a single character model done for one or the other, and I found the drawback was becoming amazingly bored with both Gondor and Undead. Though I still want to finish the damned armies one day. With that in mind, and inspired by how some of the participants in the first challenge “cheated” I’m going to keep with the two units a month target, but this time it will be:
Minimum:
• 1 unit of Gondor OR Undead OR Ogres
• 1 unit of anything else from any game.

The unit rules above will still apply – a single tactical marine doesn’t count, but an apothecary does. This will also give me a chance to revisit some of my “2016 painting resolutions” where I talked about things like getting my Dark Angels tableworthy, not to mention not killing myself from boredom painting the same stuff.

I'm glad that you're starting up another round. I'd like to start this challenge with something ancient-- Citadel Melniboneans from the mid '80s.

Finally finished my LoER contest entry. With a couple of bonus Vanguard models as well..




Painting total as of 6/16/2019: 51 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 28 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit.

I'm in, again. I'd like to just claim my entire painting pile as my pledge. But, seeing as you want a game system, I'll choose three that I currently want to get through: Infinity, Deep Wars/Shadow Sea, and Mercs: Recon. I may choose to do some Mantic in there every now and then as well, but those three are my main choices. I'm also going to place a minimum challenge of at least 1 box, or 5 blisters per month.

As with the previous run, my focus will remain on getting my Horus Heresy Solar Auxilia and Questoris Knights done, model by model. Slowly getting somewhere.

This is perfect timing, as I have a great six month project cooking: a rehabilitated demi-company of basic space marines. http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/60/675393.page#8708059

My main goal is going to be to complete a full squad each month, with the two Rhinos and the captain counting as the six squad.

My secondary goal is to finish my 30k, which comes down to a BaC box still on sprue, three MKI rhinos, and a MKI vindicator.

Hey Azazelx,

I'd like to join in. I have a whole bunch of stuff to do for our Tribal game. There are several different genres/cultures/periods I'd like to cover.

I have i) prehistorics/cave-wars, ii) african masai and lion warriors, iii) street gangs, iv) gladiators and v) vikings to do.

I would like to do one unit (5 figs) of short weapons, one unit of long weapons and three heroes, per month, for each of the above.

I have some stretch goals as well... I have some lasercut terrain/pieces from Knights of Dice and Dark Ops which I would like to put together and paint.

I've made a start on the neanderthals, painted a unit of short weapons and a hero (lucid eye mini's, now bought out by Warlord mini's):


I'm currently having problems with the undercoat (Army Painter black)... I'm not sure if I shook the can well enough or something, but it's coming off the figures WAY too easily. The above figures are already starting to show big chunks of metal through the paintjobs. I don't want to strip and paint them again... any suggestions as to do what to do? I'm currently thinking of slathering on some satin varnish, letting it dry really well, touching up the paintjob, and then a coat of testors dullcote to finish it off.

For the future, my friend is suggesting I should wash my metal figures in warm sopay water before undercoating... another friend (a caster) says it'll make no difference...

Definitely down. I'll be trying to finish as much fantasy wargame (KoW) orcs as the first run of the challenge.

I wanna get six (or more) units done but I'll be allowing for flex goals of skirmish forces (probably TNT) in case I need a break. This leg will have more infantry I think so I may have to push and then fall back a bit. Or work out a horde over a couple of months and post a small team from another system for the month.

Put me down as continuing on my Tau army. I've still got lots left to do on them, and ultimately I'm more likely to actually throw some paint down if I have a deadline or something. Motivation is key!

My armies (re-counted and updated on 1/27/19, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~11200 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1300 | Space Wolves: ~3400
Inquisition: ~300 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~800 | Talons of the Emperor: ~500
Tau Empire: ~6200 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~8100 | Death Guard: ~2800 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2100

Some very cool stuff pledged so far. Josh's ones have the most "wow" factor for me personally. I can only wish I had a force worth of those models.

Just remember, folks - this second round doesn't start until JULY. You can start before then of course as it's all about finishing models and units, but we've got a couple of weeks before even needing to begin yet.

Last time round I had a bad case of hobby butterfly. I suspect I'll have the same down here but put me down as doing Sharp Practice/15mm 18th Century Imagi-nations.

I've also had a good idea for a stretch goal (or possibly Julys main project) that will be a little bit different to anything I've seen so far in the previous thread but I'm not saying anything else yet.

*slips Leonard some 'nip*

Morning all - you can put me down for this, I think.

My current aim is to work on figures for board games, though the game being worked on may change during the period.

Will determine #1 by the time we get to July, honest...

I'm in. I will aim to paint at least two horsemen for my Chaos warband per month or 3 miniatures for my Frostgrave beastmen warband per month.

I'll be aiming to paint all models up to a hero standard so hence the low model count.

I'll rejoin as well.

I am planning to paint:
1500 points of Heer Gepanzert Panzergrenadiers for Bolt Action-The infantry is currently half painted and I am looking to get an Airbrush to do the vehicles
The remaining 1750 points of Epic Speed freaks for my 4k list
The UCM and PHR stuff from the Dropfleet Commander Kickstarter (whenever it arrives)
Probably other random stuff as well and I doubt that I will get everything finished but I'll see how it goes.
