2018 Painting League

Postby Thunderjaw » Sun Jan 14, 2018 6:34 pm

Ok,

It's 2018 and we need some togetherness and community-ization. So, I'm going to do a painting league to try to stir up some fun!

As always, the goal of this league is to get people painting. And we're going to do that in small "chunks" over time. The league start and finish times are as follows:

Start: February 1st, 2018 (or now!)
End: July 31st, 2018

That'll give us a nice run leading into the summer months!

The Goal: Each month of the contest, you need to commit to painting a specific group of models. There isn't a minimum size. There isn't a maximum size. Just take a photo of the models at the start of the month to indicate your commitment. Then take a photo at the end of the month to show you finished it. Ideally there's a nice scrap of paper in the photos with the monthly code word in it. But we're not really going to hold everyone to this, because... rules.


Official Rules

1. Start a thread with your junk in it. And by junk I mean picture of your models. You can "reuse" the same thread each month. Just keep tacking onto it. Save the planet and all that.

2. To be considered painted, we need three color tourney minimum AND BASING. If it's not based then we'll be all sad and ridicule you. There will be comments about inadequacy. Don't let that happen. Base stuff.

3. There probably won't be prizes. Or maybe there will be. Perhaps I'll select something from my endless pile of models and dump it, I mean gift it to you. Perhaps I won't.

4. Starting models can be primed, basecoated, stripped, or NIB. They can't already be painted. They don't have to be "OMG I just bought these", but you get the general gist.

"FAQ"

Q: Can I?
A: Go eff yourself.

Q: Why don't you have a detailed FAQ this time?
A: See the answer to the first question.


Feel free to "sign up" in this thread. Or skip signing up and just start painting. Or do both. But don't do neither, participation is fun when people participate.

The official monthly Code Word that needs to go on your "sign up picture card thingy" will be in the list below. I'll update this post with new words just before the start of each month.

Current Code Word: UNDERTAKE


February: UNDERTAKE
March:
April:
May:
June:
July:
