Almost fooled you by not posting a threat. Just kidding, day got away from me. :)
 
This link will get you into the archive of old threads:
http://www.the-waaag...showtopic=53073
 
And for those who've never done this, here's da rulez as they originally appeared:
 

Borrowing an idea from the Privateer Press forums, the Waaagh is now doing a regular monthly painting challenge. I am officially administering it, but also participating in it myself. The idea is, you make a promise to paint and/or build a given number of models at the beginning of the month, and then report back both on your progress and if and when you manage to complete it. Since Orks don't really make vows, they make threats that are usually carried out, we're going to call this your "Painting Threat" --just don't make it a bluff!                      ;)

So here we go...
The Ground Rulez:

  • Painting threats will be frozen 10 days after the start of the challenge. There is no changing of *any* threat after day 10. Say what you'll paint, then paint what you say. If you don't already own the models you want to paint, I suggest not making the threat until you do. Painting
    Threats are still accepted after the 10th, but they can not be changed once made.
  • When you finish your threat you will be rewarded by the greening of your name on the Threat List. You can then go on to add Bonus Threats and look really impressive. However, you can not be greened before the locking of the Threats on the 10th. Any additions to your threat made before the 10th go onto your initial threat and will not count as Bonus Threats.
  • This is more of a request than a rule. *Please* post work in progress pics if you possibly can. One of the best things about the thread is watching stuff come together. It's perfectly fine if you don't post any photos, however. Feel free to make separate posts, and then link into this thread so that others can comment directly in your own thread.
  • :soap We need to know unit sizes when you post your Painting Threat.                      :soap

FAQ
Q: Do I have to do Orks or GW Figs only?

A: No, not really. There isn't anything stopping you from doing so, but seeing as this the Waaagh, I think most of us would prefer to see Proppa Ork modelz, and not some weedy panzee piece, or even a more semi-proppa Khadorian Behemoth                      ;) After all, we have new models out there to paint! However, if you do decide to paint something that is of non-Orky nature, any pictures that you post must link to your pictures off-site, or make a thread in the Fungus Beer House. 

Q: I need to change my Painting Threat!
A: You have until Day 10 of the month. 

Q: What if I don't have a camera?
A: We operate on the honour system. If you say you did it, we believe you. There are no prizes, so you only get the satisfaction of lying on the internet if you choose to do so. 
Q: Will you do one of these every month?
A: That's the goal... We'll do one of these close to the beginning of every month... we've now done it for more than three years.
Q: Hey, what if we finish our vow but decide to paint more?
A: Paint away! If you mean, can you get a head start on next month, I guess so. But it's kind of weedy to make a painting threat with a 75% painted unit at the start of the month... as guilty as I am of this myself!                      :blush 
Q. I've not made my threats for the past two months, should I still enter?
A. You bet! The idea behind a painting threat is to develop some discipline as to what you're going to build or paint. Part of the challenge is to learn what you can complete within a given month, and what you can't. If you find you're not making your threat for the month, then reduce the size of it. Don't bite off more than you can chew... take it in smaller chunks. If you manage to finish your threat early, then get working on the next lot!                      :) 

Q. What if I get my threat done early?
A: WeIl, if you get it done early, you can try to make a Bonus Threat where you can add an additional threat only after the existing work is completed. No bonus prizes, but you will get the respect of everybody. Additionally, this can be a way to make sure you don't over-threaten
earlier in the month.                      :) 


Right... now that you've got it, get to it lads!!                      :whip

My own threat this month has a lot to do with a major train show on April 22-24. A lot of the work is already done, but some of it is getting down to the wire. I have to paint a nscale locomotive in my club's colours and decal it appropriately as a surprise to the club, I also have 24 N-Scale (1/160 or 12mm figures) Firefighters that need to be painted as well. Those could prove a challenge, but they need to be done in 3 weeks...

 

Oh yeah, and I have some Bloodbowl stuff I want to get built at minimum...

Right, now that glitch is sorted out. Seems I fooled myself when doing the copypasta from one month to the next and did it twice, and somehow the link to the old thread got reactivated. Wups... sorry about that lads. :bang So I've put the zombie thread down, pulled threats that were posted there and put them here, and then got everybody's threat logged so far.

 

We good? :?

Cheers Aga, I think there's just Miks' threat missing

 

 

My threat is as follows (pics of the none painted models in http://www.the-waaag...showtopic=54540 )

1 Mek with Rokkit or Tankbusta 

1 Mek with Big Shoota and Ammo Runt

1 Mek with Kustom Mega Blasta and Bosspole

4 Lootas

4 Burna Boyz

5 repainted Stormboyz

 

I had a free day yesterday so they are all primed and I've started on the base colours for Deffskull klan ( I had blue primer handy and lots of blue shades left)

 

Can you copy/paste his post or should I PM him and get him to re-post?

My first challenge!

 

Paint:

1 warboss

12 tankbustas (including nob)

3 deffkopters

1 painboy and grot orderly

10 kommandos

Nazgrub Wurrzag

Boyz, all of them (that have been assembled, based, and ready to paint, I lost count. 45-ish)

 

I've got other projects but too much random time variable to make them a threat.

Okay, I'm back for Waaghril. Since I built a trukk I didn't plan on building (and it's still not done yet), I'm not sure what to threaten. Painting the whole thing is just not going to happen. So let me choose a doable chunk and then throw a bit more on to see if that spurs me to get more done.

 

Paint: flakka dakka gun (bed, gunner and all)

Build: finish the truk build (which consists of putting a buncha boyz in the remaining truk bed)

 

It's clearly not the skarnir-mega-workload, but It's a stretch for me. And we're supposed to be extending ourselves here.

I decided to go big on this one. If I manage to pull it off ill be well chuffed with myself.
Dont expect anything above tabletop standard on the painting front!

Well, the painting job on the locomotive is mostly done. I've started applying decals (which are home-made!). I haven't gotten my hands on the Firefighters yet, but they are going to be an exercise in Speed Painting. They're about halfway in-between Flames of War and Epic Armageddon in terms of scale. Block colours, wash, done (hopefully).

25 Boyz painted. That took longer than I thought but I did try new techniques like painting skulls and crossbones, and even a few checks. I know it's very unlikely that'll go back to these models to add detail when I can get work on the next set of models, so I wanted to give them the quality I want now.

 

At day 10, I want to make a slight change or clarification to my paint threat: For the warboss I aim only to get basic colours down, table-top standard, so I can spend more time working on the details unrushed.
