Welcome to The Bolter and Chainsword's 1st (hopefully) Annual Boxing Day Bash, the premise is simple; Build, Paint, and Base 1 (or more) model/s in 24hrs. 

 

The Rules are as follows;

  • Build, paint, and base one model.
  • 24hr limit, determined by the time of Participants "Vow" post. Everybody gets 24hrs starting at any time on THEIR local Boxing Day.
  • "Completion" standard set by Participant.
  • Each Vow made for the Participants sub/forum of choice.
  • Each completion earns one point for building the model, two points for building AND painting the model, and a total of three points for building AND painting, AND basing\ their model within the 24hr time period.
  • Two pictures are required, one picture of the bitz or sprue, and one of the completed model.
  • Primed bitz/sprue will be accepted.

Please post your vows here, in this thread with the following format,

 

I, {insert your name}, accept The Boxing Day Challenge and vow to Build, Paint, and Base {insert unit/s here} for the honour of the {insert your sub-forum} within the 24hrs time limit.

 

You can signify your participation by adding the following badge to your signature if you so desire,

There will be other badges awarded at the conclusion of the event.

 

Have fun, lets see some cool models.

I am in the UK, and will not be able to participate for all of boxing day. But work are giving me today off.

 

However I will use Aussie time, and it is now boxing day there.

Quick update before I go for a festive game of ping-pong

 

Base almost done

 

Need to do reds, some rusting of metals on the base to give some contrast and some blood spatter. Went with Space Wolf casualties to be a bit different. Representing the Night of the Wolf. Plus I run 6th legion as my army, so I can kind of tie him into them should I work on another legion :)

 

Maybe they were his watchpack ;)

My Doom Reaper ( Ultramarine successor) tactical brother is reporting for duty. This was awesome, I'm clocking it at 6 hours painting to completion, which is a massive best time for me. Count me in for next year.

Progress report:

 

base coats applied to legs, torso, head, backpack, base and provisional arms.

 

Shoulder pads finished (bar a bit of cleaning up).

 

Found out didn't have the right arm I needed so have had to use alternative parts but I might change them depending on how everything looks once I done a test fit just waiting for paint to dry.  already had to scrap original shoulder pads as too much wind to undercoat one of them and can't find my deathwatch bits.

 

Have started drafting a bit of fluff for Jorin.

 

Congrats to Grotsmasha and Dantay for completing, looking really nice.
