Welcome all to the 76th round of the Dakka Painting challenge. For the unfamiliar, this is a friendly painting competition open to members of all skill levels and experience, whether your entry is your first or you thousand-and-first time painting miniatures. Each month, finished entries are collected into a thread where the community can vote on their favourite pieces, and those votes go towards an annual overall League that runs for 12 rounds, ending in February next year.



This month, the theme is Boots on the Ground. Your entry don't necessarily need to be line infantry, but should definitely feature models that fight with their feet firmly planted, eschewing mounts, vehicles or other more esoteric modes of transport.

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 June and will end at midnight UK time on the 30th of June. After this, I shall compile the finished entries into a new thread, and voting will run for 5 days.

Wasn't sure which of the many, many unpainted troops I should pick but now that others have also entered some massive duders I'll just stick with the first idea that came to mind, this Cursed City hero and maybe his undead fellow Ogors

Don't think I have more impressive boots in my pile of shame! And there's also ground underneath, I guess

Finally managed to get the League Table updated, every time I sat down to do it recently I'd make a mistake somewhere and have to do at least a part of it over again, not sure whats going on with my attention levels.

Boots on the ground seems perfect for basic troops, so I'm gonna do some basic Battle Sisters. Proof:

Should be a nice easy project. Don't expect my best work, as I tend to use kind of a "quick and dirty" method for my Sisters, but it should be fun and hopefully people like them.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 9/25/20, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~16000 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~900 | Space Wolves: ~3800
Astra Militarum: ~800 | Officio Assassinorum: ~600 | Imperial Knights: ~1300 | Sisters of Battle: ~1900
