Though many guardsmen were lost in the trials of the Regiments of the B&C challenges, a great many victories were won. Victories which deserve to go down in history, for history is written by the victors. So let us raise statues and monuments to commemorate our victories and inspire the troops of inevitable future conflicts!

I give you...

Commencing immediately, with a deadline of 1500hrs (GMT) on December 13th, all regimental commanders are hereby called upon to make 'a statue/monument to the glory of the Imperial Guard' (comprising at least in part an Imperial Guard miniature) for use in game as a terrain piece or objective marker and to submit a write-up detailing the background of the monument/statue (no shorter than 100 words).

Photographic evidence should consist of at least one WIP photo and at least one image of the completed model.

There will, of course, be a (signature image) reward for those who successfully submit both the write-up and images of the completed model.

Please vow your participation in a post along these lines...
Sample Vow
I, Father Mehman the Scribe, also known as "Meh", vow to create a monument of His righteous glory on the battlefields across the galaxy by 1500 (GMT) on December 13th. If I fail, woe to me as my house shall suffer my failure but, alas, if I should prevail, let Humankind see His eternal glory through me.

And let all know of your participation in this glorious endeavour via the following signature image:

gallery_30308_9518_5337.png

...which, if clicked upon, will take members to this very thread.

Example Entry:
Statue of Zavier DiCavagni, Stonebridge City, Kierdale’s Shrineworld

Noice!  I'm thinking I'll recycle one of my otherwise-useless metal "cadians standing at attention" models...same armor as the plastics, therefore a mismatch with my metal cadian army...I used a couple as motor pool sentries for a tournament display board under the theory that leaf-eating "facilities management regiment" troopers wouldn't necessarily have the same gear as the meat-eating warfighters...in fact, they'd be more likely, not less, to have the latest "cool guy" gear....tongue.png

Thanks for clearing up dodgy formatting, lord commissar Warriorfish.

I’ve also edited the OP to include a sample vow (care of Mehman).

And here is mine.
I, Kierdale, vow to create a monument to the glory of the victories of general Charles Kierdale III won during the conquest of the 12 worlds of the Infernumundi Campaign by 1500 (GMT) on December 13th. May He Upon The Golden Throne guide my chisel and my mallet.

Digging through my bits box for various projects and I knew what I had to do, already got the idea for the fluff too:

Just need to figure out a good statue colour... I'm thinking a bronze one would be cool.

For what it's worth, I did the bronze on DiCavagni's statue (in the OP) by drybrushing bronze over a black undercoat and shading it with Agrax Earthshade. Then repeated drybrushings of bronze shaded by Agrax. I think I tried a light drybrush of gold on extremities but aborted it shortly after trying as it was too light.
The patina was Nihilak Oxide. I put it on heavily with a brush in one hand and wiped most of it off, wiping downwards, with a tissue in the other hand. This left some in crevices and left a thin smear on other areas.

And don't forget the bird droppings.

I got mine undercoated at last.

med_gallery_63428_6841_509455.jpg

I must say I'm impressed with Mr.Hobby's "Mr.Finishing Surfacer 1500 Black" (the undercoat spray I used). Very fine and a good finish.

I'll get onto slapping some paint on it now!
