Having found myself a little demotivated to paint, I got out my Conquest pile of shame and got to assembling. As I was doing so I realised I'd made a mistake (in regards to consistency) in how I was treating terrain for the Campaign. I'd been awarding them as a Seriously, but for Attack / Defense I hadn't bothered to count exactly how many models had been painted. If I'm counting a base good enough for 1 Attack / Defense then I should be counting a barrel, or ammo crate as 1 Attack / Defense too. 

I'll be going through all three strategiums and allocating them the proper Attack / Defense, and will make sure to do so continuing forward :tu:

Is it possible to pledge additional models for the month? There's still plenty of backlog left.

Thanks!

In that case: BONUS STAGE!

 

I, TPS, pledge to complete 8 Genestealers, to the defense of the Xenos, by month's end.

Been doing little bits here and there on my Simulacrum Imperialis in coffee breaks this morning to finish her off - now just the Superior to go, then hopefully there'll be some nice fancy completion photos of my first ten members of the Order of the Iron Veil (plus their creepy vat-grown cherub hangers on).

Still freehanding the Ultramarine symbols/debating another horrible attempt at using transfers for them, but calling the 7 Ultramarine Tactical Marines complete! Brings me to 19 models of my vow complete, with another 2 Lieutenants, 5 Chaos Terminators and 8 Chaos Space Marines left.

 

49798755193_b4518d623e.jpg

 

Won't have the full weekend this week to paint them up, so not sure if I'll make it before the end of the month - but I'm optimistic the 8 Chaos Space Marines will be faster. I already have them rebased from when I vowed them, and just need to redetail them like the other Iron Warriors.

Just out of curiosity when does ETL roll around? 
 

Also I’ve managed to acquire at least 1250 - 1500 points worth of Harlequins, can I make a plodding along vow this far into the year once I have them all in my possession?

, Acemund Debonair, the Hawk of Talhon, hereby embark once more on the 12 Months of Hobby Challenge! For the month of April, I pledge to complete One (1) (for now) Battle Sister of the Order of the Iron Tower to the defence of the Chaos Faction by month's end.

@TPS - I'm with you on the masks and use helmets whenever I can across my army.

Unfortunately Incursors do not have helmets at all - you have to make them.

 

I have been making mine in two ways - from the infiltrators' helmets and as a cross between Incursors' masks and a regular helmet. This latest Incursor has the second type.

 

Details for anyone interested:

Cheers!

Hailing from Sagitar's World, Sister Karinda is very much a typical Sagitari recruit; keen of eye and steady of aim, with an affinity for machines of many stripes.

Amongst her squad, Karinda takes the most pride in the maintenance of her arms and armour - a sentence that can be taken somewhat literally considering her bionic arm.

Karinda lost her arm to a heretic cultist who had fashioned some kind of crude Power Claw during an uprising in the city of Affior. In spite of having her arm shattered and cut away, Karinda fought for long enough to shoot the offending heretic in the torso with two rounds from her bolt pistol before passing out.

In the aftermath, Karinda has fully embraced her bionic arm with some pride, claiming it to be suitably "Iron-strong".

I don't know why, but I'm getting worse and worse at applying transfers, though I haven't changed anything in the way I do it. I apply them using Micro Set, than a couple layers of Micro Sol and they're still quite wrinkly. I'm considering moving to sculpted shoulderpads once I'm done with these easy-fit models.

 

As a matter of fact once I'm done with these Ultramarines I wanted to try Imperial Fists or White Scars using contrast paint. We'll see, still have plenty of blue models to finish
