Welcome to the 18th Unofficial Painting Challenge here on Dakka! Each month, entrants use these challenges as motivation to get painting, push their skills, clear their backlogs and get feedback from the amazing P&M community here. Anyone is free to enter, whether this is your first model or your thousand and first!

This month, the theme is Death From The Skies. As ever, this is open to interpretation, so anything from a supersonic fighter jet to a warrior leaping down on an unsuspecting foe goes!


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

I’d like to finish up this squad. The two painted guys were done sometime around early 3rd edition, and have been waiting for their fellows for quite a while now. Some of them have the start of their undersuits basecoated, but that I need to go over that anyway. And knowing me, I’ll just end finishing the exarch, who is just primed. Might end up touching up the old guys to match the new; they were done in my black wash everything phase.

...and after I've done those, I've got about another 25 to go! (most of them being the older ones with the metal torsos/rokkit packs too!)

Spoiler:
also, seriously?! how are those tiny 25mm bases supposed to be big enough for stormboyz?? - ordinary boyz barely squeeze onto them - these ones are in big dynamic poses, with honkin' great rokkit-packs!

I don't have anything expressly flying, but I do have a commissar on a jetbike Rogue Trader figure... and Fulgrim who is very tall, leaping and coming off a point of rock.
Though my first choice to work on this month will be a strange little Daemon Prince conversion. Just waiting on delivery.

^the quote seems to be messing up a little there, oh well..anyway...
hmm, well, I don't have any around at the moment that aren't spoken for, so I'd have to order some...I guess I do have a month, so there's time for that...what's the general consensus regarding orks on 32mm bases though?...I thought it was basically just marines that are "approved" to be on 32" bases?

ZoBo: Officially, you can put them on any base you like within reason. Jump troops, in particular, benefit from 32s greatly and receive a greater amount of stability on the tabletop.

If you're a rodent, insect or amphibian she can get her talons or beak around then death is very much what she'd be. Definitely counts in my book.

Thanks! And I am looking forward to painting the blood angel at the same time as Januine (plus potentially others too).

You should take part this month, I don't recall seeing you having your DW:O set painted yet

As much as I'd like to do my shiny new Barracuda, I think these guys will be more likely to get finished in the time I have available this month. Plus there was talk of a friendly competition with a few others doing the same models!

That was my back-up idea in the vote topic. I have to paint one for my Titan base at some point.

Your storm boys will definitely look better on 32's.

yeah...that is starting to sound like the way forward I think...and I probably won't even need to order them anyway actually, I have a couple of unbuilt "start collecting: nurgle daemons" boxes, and the plaguebearers in those come with 32mm's...so I think they'll be getting mugged

...also, clearly I was tired when I made that last post...32" bases might be a little unwieldy!
