May is upon us… I repeat the ETL is upon us! I mean May… No… ETL!  Nevindar hereby opens up the thread for the month!
 

Any and all models pledged in the ETL challenge may also be pledged for the Casual Challenge. Note however that the ETL have a 3 month deadline whereas the Casual Challenge will still have the 1 month deadline. This makes for a great way to divide up your total ETL pledge in…. eh… Manageable? Chunks? ;)
 

We all know how this works by now, pledge some models to paint this month, build your armies, and enjoy the opportunity to stick it to the Traitors/Loyalists. Full rules can now be found in the Hall of Victors thread - where anyone involved so far should feel happy to post their full army shots!

There is something important still in effect this month that I have been lax in enforcing. Pledges should be completed before any additional models are pledged and models need to be pledged to be counted for the casual challenge.

As a basic reminder, every model you pledge to paint is worth points. Once you finish the model and show us you earn points for your faction. These are always safe, so there is always an incentive to keep painting! The scores are as follows -

Infantry - 1 point;
Large Infantry (terminators, bikes, rapiers without crew etc.) - 2 points;
Monstrous infantry - 3 points;
Vehicles and Fortifications - 6 points;
Lord of War (including Primarchs)- 10 points;
Warhound Titan – 15 points;
Reaver Titan – 20 points (still hoping to see one someday!)
(If you feel like painting a Warlord Titan for the Challenge… We can work something out)
Building pledge is a quarter of a point for the model pledged, and if the model is also “upgraded” with a paint job in the same month it will receive full points for painting but none for the build itself.

So brothers, sisters, post-humans and machine creations, for the Emperor or for Horus let's see some pledges!

Well, I should really be working on a research paper on the US Constitution right now and/or sleeping right now, but I've been trying to keep motivation high for my Imperial Fists (even though I'm going Daemonkin for the ETL) and so I'll vow to paint my Vigilator.

Also, nevindar, is it all right if I pledge this Contemptor? It's got part of the first coat of Averland Sunset after priming, but other than that nothing's been done to it.

I'd say that Contempto falls under "primed/basecoated" so... It's added as a pledge now psycho!

I pledge one Expeditionary Navigator aligned to the Blood Angels Legion.

The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done

And done 

 

gallery_80005_10591_5797.jpg

 

Pretty dodgy camera work, but they just aren't that exciting to look at anyway. Mix of BaC, FW and some odd GW pieces for an eventual White Scars detachment.

I'll make a new pledge to paint a Leviathan dreadnought (from my EtL pledge) and a jetbike with a multi melta.
