Special thanks to Brother Chaplain Kage for the inspiration needed to launch this event.

 

+ The Idea +

 

With the newest edition of Codex:Tyranids just around the corner and this new subforum dedicated solely to the ravenous hordes of the Tyranids (and their Cultist allies/slaves), it's the prime time to launch a painting challenge to get people painting and participating!

 

Go forth and get unfinished models from out of your boxes or off your shelves and onto the tabletop, fully painted and ready to tear the enemy a new one (quite literally)!

 

+ The Rules +

 

Each month, you make one (1) vow to complete a minimum of one (1) Index- or Codex-legal unit from either the Tyranid or Genestealer Cult armies. With each vow, you provide a "start" picture and another picture once your vow is completed. You are encouraged to post WIP pictures to allow fellow Frater to provide feedback and inspiration. The initial state of the models can be anything from brand new in their box to almost finished but still missing final highights.

 

For the vow itself, you can simply copy/paste the following text...

 

I, [forum name], vow to fully assemble and paint [unit name and quantity] by 30th November 2017.

...and modify it to suit your needs or craft your own as long as it is clear what you are going to paint for the upcoming month! thumbsup.gif
 

Note: Once you have finished your vow, you must wait until the current month is over until you can make another vow. This is not a race but a "slow grow" challenge that encourages you to get things done slowly but surely. The number of units you paint in a month is largely irrelevant as the Hive Mind will reward those who stick around in the long run, even if they only complete one unit per month!

 

Note #2: The month finishes at midnight of your local time.

Cool - are Genestealer Cultists also allowed or "just" pure 'Nids :)?

So we could start at any month and go as gradual as we wanted? Also how unfinished does a model need to be to be considered fit to vow?

Looking forward to seeing them, Atia!

Yes, you don't need to start in November. This is a recurring monthly event so it will go on and on until there's no interest left. And, as stated in the rules, "the initial state of the models can be anything from brand new in their box to almost finished but still missing final highights".

I, Chaplain Dosjetka, vow to fully assemble and paint five (5) Genestealers from Hive Fleet Behemoth by 30th November 2017. Failure is not an option.

In fairness the rules hadn't been detailed when I asked the question! Either way this is good news I met yet finish my Trygon!

Inquisitor Jorvun - Ordo Xenos (declared Excommunicatus M41 on grounds of insanity.)

 

Hive Fleet Titan would arrive in the edges of Imperial Space following the Warp Storms that preceded the Cicatrix Maledictum.  Coming from beyond the limits of the Emperors Light they first struck the Watchworld of Bastien and spread from there.  They were another enemy to face for the already stricken Iron Heralds Astartes but it was a challenge the Chapter was ready to meet.

 

I, Brother Argent, vow to assemble and fully paint a Hive Tyrant of Hive Fleet Titan before the end of November.  Failure is a distinct possibility but hopefully wont happen.

 

And so it begins...

What colour scheme does Hive Fleet Titan have? I don't think I've ever heard of them before...

You haven't.  Like everything I do they are DIY.  They started as black with stark green on their carapace but these days they are fleshy with green carapace.

This is great, I'm in (although being inept at adding the pic to my signature for some reason?!)

I've been working on my Hive Fleet Leviathan for the last few months as well as a fledgling Genestealer Cult so this would help me with progress and to keep going on this.

However, having issues uploading pics from my ipad so need to fix that first (not the IT guy by any stretch...) and then i’ll contribute

FTFY.

 

Can I vow a unit if I've painted one model from it, but not the rest to make it a legal unit?

Loads

 

There's actually more than that, but the GW page should give you guidance.

Carnifex is a pretty cool model as well.......or the Hierophant. :D

Mawlocs are one of my favorite Tyranid models too.

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Best bet is probably the new start collecting set, from a discount retailer. You get the trygon the essentially get the other stuff for free. More models to practice the scheme on or start an army.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT FOR VOW:

 

I, Xenith, vow to fully paint one lictor by 30th November 2017.

 

Here's the pre photo. I put the blue on last night, stupidly before taking the photo.
