Brad's 2016 Painting League Announcement/Other Stuff Thread

Postby Thunderjaw » Thu Jul 28, 2016 8:44 pm

Welcome to...

It's time for another painting league in an attempt to motivate myself and a few other folks and to basically give us an excuse to have fun.

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: August 1st, 2016
End: December 31st, 2016

That'll give us a nice finish off through the end of the year.

Everyone knows that painters worship the lesser known Chaos God Picassork. He's in the same pantheon as Nuffle, but that's not important right now. Picassork doesn't care for who the Paint Flows, as long as it Flows! Pigments for the Pallette Throne! For the purpose of this contest, any game, model, or whatever is fair game!

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" is as follows:

August: Motivate!
September: Persevere!
October:
November:
December:

How about Chartreuse?

Chartreuse is halfway between green and yellow — a yellowish green, a greenish yellow. But the spectrum within this color ranges from bright lime to light sulphur.
"I was not alone, for foolhardiness was not then mixed with that love of the grotesque and the terrible which has made my career a series of quests for strange horrors in literature and in life." H.P. Lovecraft, "The Lurking Fear" (1923)

I don't know what we'll call the Paint God, but thanks, Brad for organizing this event again!

It's good stuff. It's lighting an always-necessary fire under me to keep painting. (And just in time, too, because I was starting to get a bit fatigued with the Khorne army, which meant I was about to defect back to converting Orks, and who knows when I would have returned to the twisted embrace of the Ruinous Powers?)

So, thanks, dude!

Yes, thanks much! Due to the month I've had I haven't picked up a paint brush yet, but I got my terminators ready to paint. I think I'm going to paint up a Drop pod starting today just so I can finish something this month, and then work on the terminators next month.
