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.
  • Individual points can be earned for completing any one of the three criteria.
  • Sub-assemblies will be accepted for larger models.

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 one of the following badges to your signature if you so desire,

Have fun, lets see some cool models.

Not yet Boxing Day for me, so will decide something in the morning. As much as I'd like to do a Baneblade... I don't think it'd go well, simply don't have the resources (read: a big enough brush) at the moment. Something smaller, I think.

For the light of Sol, and the earth of Terra, we stand. For the oaths we made, we stand. For the blood in our veins, we stand.
For the stones laid by our ancestors, we stand. For the days that have passed and the days that shall come, we stand.
For the living and the honour of the dead, we stand.

Here we go, I'm off to work, so this a place-holder until I get home as there's a slight chance I'll finish late tonight. *IF* I finish work late I won't have time to finish proper. All that's left is letting the Ironearth dry, dry brushing it and re doing the bases rim.

Currently weather is too bad for basecoating, therefore I can't say if painting becomes possible later.

Well done Jorim, I'll double check, but I'm pretty sure 4hrs, 12mins is a Boxing Day Bash speed record.....

Assuming no one tops your time this year, faster than 4hrs 12min. Rashbold held the previous fastest time from 2015 at 5hrs 45mins.

I could probably break the four hour record if I build and paint a single model rather than doing what I planned. The painting would be atrocious though. :P

Well this has been surprisingly fun. One question though - should I post individual pictures for each challenge, or just post a single picture of all three models in whatever state they're in when I tap out?
