+++ The fires of war burn bright.  Engines of battle will be needed for campaign.  +++

 

gallery_6494_11942_12935.jpg

 

Warriors of Deliverance!  Your fight against the enemies of the Imperium is nigh, yet more than sword and cunning will be needed.  The Armory of the Ravenspire is open and plentiful.

 

This painting event is for the machines of war we often need, or want, yet somehow our brushes and dedication are left behind for other desires or projects.  The goal for this event is to simply paint vehicles to add to the collection!  

 

The rules are simple: vow to paint any unit with an Armor Value.  Each vow should be for the same unit type.  So, if I want to paint two Dreadnoughts and one of them is a Contemptor, then I make 1 vow but declare both variants. It is preferred the quality be at least for table-top use with three different colors used (washes do not count).

 

The vow is:

I, (name), for the (Chapter name), vow to complete (model/models) by 11:59 PM on April 15, 2017.

 

The end time is for your time zone, your personal honor is used in that regard smile.png

 

In this thread, submit a photo of the model(s) in the vow(s) in whatever state they are in.  Upon completion, post a photo of the completed model(s).  More than one angle would be nice, but not required.  The OP will be updated every couple of days because ... real life.

 

This is for the Raven Guard and any of their Successor Chapters.  If you want to vow multiple Chapters, that’s fine so long as they are using Corax’s gene-seed.

 

Banners for vowing can be used.  At the end of the event, banners will be available as a mark of pride.  A special banner will be provided to the participant with the most completed models.  No fail banners because the OP will show that and your shame is for you to own (no need to advertise that wherever you post laugh.png ).

 

Get building, get painting, chop chop!

 

+++ Banner +++

Thank you NiceGuyAdi :tu:

+++++

 

Please send a PM with any questions or concerns.  I will try to reply quickly.

 

[This is the first time I'm doing something like this and I didn't want to make too many restrictions.  All I have is MSPaint for banners, so if anyone wants to make a sweet banner set, PM me with your ideas.  Your patience is certainly appreciated happy.png]

Good start so far!

An avalanche can start from a falling pebble ^_^

I'll get mine in and update the OP as well.

Haha, perils of a mobile keyboard! Or is it that I'm really a denizen of the warp and don't understand time?

I take it back. The ten minutes probably won't make a difference anyway.

This will have the Lascannon turret primarily.  Since I dig modular vehicles, then I'm also going to throw in a Whirlwind and Heavy Bolter turrets.  The side doors will be magnetized to make the Rhino hull able to be Predatorized.  New word happy.png

Ambitious project, Race.

For my part, my land speeder is about 40% done already. Hoping to have it completed before I have the Contemptor, so I can focus on one thing at a time.

Not yet. Totally forgot to take "before" pictures. It's mostly assembled and primed black.

I'll document the dread's transformation from a few chunks of resin to, well, one chunk of resin.

Ya, if I can get this Razorback out, then I may give my FW Ironclad the brush.

Gotta make some banners! Unless someone offers to make them then I'll squeeze them out on Monday.
