Welcome all to the 32nd round of the Unofficial Painting Challenge here on Dakka. For anyone who's unfamiliar with the format, this is a simple community challenge open to anyone on Dakka, the aim of the game being to paint a model or set of models relating to the month's theme and win points for doing so!

This month, the traditional Halloween/October theme returns with Fright Night. As always, this is open to interpretation however you like, whether that's a Genestealer lurking in the shadows or the terrifying visage of a victim of the Curse of the Wulfen, a ghostly form of a long-dead warrior or the unknowable horror of a Dark Elf sorceress's power. The scarier and more thematic, the better!



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

OK, bit of a stretch here, depending on how long it takes me to build, and if I get a good day to prime. And then get all that done leaving enough time for my slow self to get paint down. But if all that lines up, I’m going to try to get some hexwraiths done. I’m also going to try do get the skeletons done, to finish off my start collecting box, so might do a mix, depending on my mood and how they turn out.

But if I can’t manage that, I’ll be entering Tippy, the loneliest hormagaunt.

Not really too sure how much I have for this one, so I'll enter this for now, but may change depending on what I find in my collection! So (for now), I'll go for the Tenebrael Shard; I imagine bumping in to him in a dark alley would definitely put a bit of Fright in your Night.



*EDIT* Had to change entry as these Plague marines need to be painted up! One day I might get round to finishing Silver Tower... one day...

I been thinking about what I want to enter this month and I did get out a Undead Dragon but thoughts kept bubbling away and I thought i'd go for something much more scary, I was gong down the Orks in Fancy Dress route and remembered this scene.

Spoiler:




So thought I would go with an Ork Batman and Robin - These guys coming out of the mist on a dark night, something that will frighten criminals everywhere

Trying to get the bits together now.

Hmmm...not sure if I should enter some Poxwalkers or some kind of Daemons for this one. Khorne knows I've got some Bloodletters and Flesh Hounds that really need some finishing, but honestly I feel like I should do some Nurgle stuff in honor of the Death Guard release. I'm most likely going to go with Poxwalkers as I'm working my way through the Dark Imperium set anyways; might as well start with those when I move over to the Death Guard half.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 8/22/17, including usual wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~9800 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~900 | Space Wolves: ~1500
Inquisition: ~120 | Officio Assassinorum: ~175 | Imperial Knights: ~Coming soon!
Tau Empire: ~5500 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~5900 | Death Guard: ~1900 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2300
Check out my P&M Blogs: ZergSmasher's P&M Blog | Stormsurge blog | Imperial Knights: Renegade blog | Total models painted in 2016: 50 | Total models painted in 2017: 47 | Current main painting project: Death Guard Poxwalkers
I'm totally sick of seeing people use the word loose for lose. You LOSE a game when you don't win. You don't LOOSE a game unless you somehow release it from captivity. Get it right people! [/grammarnazi]

That is exactly what I intend to enter too! Definitely fits the bill for the theme, I think. Few things would give you as much of a 'fright' to put it mildly...

Eek hope I haven't set myself up for a fall here. I don't know how well I can do an Ork in Batman Fancy dress (let alone make it look like only Fools and Orkses). Yeah I like that episode too.

Link to a larger bit of that episode if anyone is interested.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93bAdEf0pzc&list=RD93bAdEf0pzc#t=0

I do think I should let Para and you guys name all my entries since they are always better than my own names.

Oh this month is going to be super fun! Some amazing crazy monsters will come out of the woodwork this month not to be seen for another year! I'm thinking about going classic monsters like King King, Dracula, WereWolf, Lizardman, stuff like that! Daemon princes would be fun, paint up like 5 of them and then go table someone! haha!

Don't suppose you've got an earlier proof? It's not that I don't trust you, it's just that they look like a fair bit of work has already gone into them beyond the normal rules for a proof pic.

Skin is half done, helmets and pants are just base coated. Everything else is bare primer.
Don't have an earlier picture. I can start something else no prb.

If you don't mind, that would be better. The rules say primed and/or one colour applied, those are just a little too far along to really fit, I'm afraid. Hope that's ok, and do feel free to show those off in here once they're done!
