Welcome to The Bolter and Chainsword's 2nd 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 (or more) models.
  • 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/s, two points for building AND painting the model/s, and a total of three points for building AND painting, AND basing their model/s within the 24hr time period.
  • A fourth point will be awarded for multiple models completed within the 24hrs time period.
  • Two pictures are required, one picture of the bitz or sprue, and one of the completed model/s.
  • 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,

I, Audemus, accept The Boxing Day Challenge and vow to Build, Paint, and Base Legio Custodes Caladius Grav-Tank for the honour of the Horus Heresy within the 24hrs time limit.

 

I hesitated momentarily to start now as I haven't slept but as sleep appears to be evading me, I am tired of wasting time as I haven't built or primed anything yet. 

 

Here we go folks, no guts, no glory.

 

Edit: Also, I'm not sure if the resin base is going to really work for this or not, but I'm going to play around with it to see if I can make it do so.  Consider this a "if it works" portion of the model.  I included it just to be clear it wasn't painted etc. to be entirely transparent ahead of time! lol

 

LsfEvx3.png

 

 

Note: I cleaned the pieces as they had been sitting to dry since the model arrived and I soaked/scrubbed them...holy hell for such a non-complicated and *new* cast this thing was horrible.  I am pretty disturbed at how badly cast this model was, as I hope it isn't a representation of FW's future casts.  For example, one of the cannon ports wasn't even...there.  It had a small hole and the rest of the entire rectangular connection point was filled in with resin.  This went as well for the sides of the hull where the engines are supposed to mount, 25% of one of the rectangular ports was filled in with resin, leaving me to literally dig out the entire area with my model knife.

 

Edit 2 - 10:16 AM EST

 

Pre-build completed and the primer has dried, brushes at the ready!

Doesn't get much more unassembled than that. We'll see if I can do this. I'm a pretty slow painter :P

I prefer to think that bolt weapons do, in fact, use cased ammunition - mostly for the reasons you state. It looks cool. They jingle when they hit hard ground. It's like the Emperor's wind chimes.
