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!
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.
