01RTB01 I'll allow it! (Much like I've allowed basically everything during this event :lol:)

Miek glad to hear you didn't have to start creating your own washes, hopefully the post gods smile on your request for more grey!

DPL being from Canada I can rightly appreciate inclement weather halting the priming process. I lucked out hard that my work has a spray booth otherwise I'd still have my week in spring and second week in fall where the temperature and humidity lined up for good priming. :yes:

I have come to kick ass and chew bubble gum! And I'm fresh outta bubble gum.

I like the way they pop.

I'm really bad at estimating the time it'll take to paint my vows, but I'm progressing well! Next are highlights and touchups to every color, and done:

med_gallery_225534_16617_694255.jpg

There are 21 but I vowed 20. I noticed yesterday that I was only 40 pts short of 1500 so I'll probably do a fifth vow with scarabs or something.

After that, I'll probably rebase them all (32mm bases are on the way).

Edit: Tried electric blue (Vallejo air) for the first time and I love it. I also tried mixing regular paint with flow improver to make a wash and wow, it's magical! You can easily adjust to the desired "flowiness" (surface tension); should've tried it sooner.

Looking awesome Miek :)

I've primed my monolith and skorpekhs...

Just trying to figure out how to do the Blackstone akin to the box art - the greeny/ bluey stuff.

Was going to use aethermatic blue contrast to start but there isn't any locally and it takes about 2 weeks for orders up here 😁

One week to go people! 

 

From the 27 people involved we've seen 50 Vows made and currently 32 of those have been completed. I'll save all the rest of the numbers for next Sunday's wrap-up which will include everyone's completed totals.

 

On the 8th I'll post a few hours before the event's end and then post a notice when submissions will no longer be accepted. Once submissions are closed I'll give everyone some time to go over the final edit of Vows on page 1 to make sure I've got everything right before closing this thread and creating a new thread for the event's wrap up and to award badges.

 

Keep those brushes moving! Not much time left to post some last minute Vow completions :tu::yes:

No penalties for incomplete Vows and let's say 8pm EST November 8th is the cutoff for those painting right down to the wire. It may be a bit later but not earlier and I will post a reminder as we get closer to the deadline.

I'm going to call this done. Details on the bases of the Doomstalker and Reanimator still need done (plus one piece on the middle Destroyer's base) but I am out of the paints I need for those and after buying all these Necrons I have no money left for the paints.

This hobby is slowly taking over my workshop :D

med_gallery_225534_16735_412279.jpg

@NTaW could I add the 21th warrior to the others? I'm painting them all together. If not that's totally fine.

Well done completing yet another Vow Tyriks! I'm also glad to see both weapon options represented on your LHD's. :tu:

 

Miek I'll add it in after I post this message. Nice hobby space!

Fourth vow competed, yay! That's 21 warriors for the glory of my dynasty (have yet to come up with a name):

med_gallery_225534_16611_123017.jpg

My fifth vow will only consist of three scarab bases, shouldn't take too long:

Excuse the cluttered pic but it will do for now.  Will get a better one soon.  They aren't glued together (thus the one guy with dodgy arm) and bases will be done later when the whole force is assembled but they are done for now.  May sneak through another vow at the last minute but see how I go.

Haha yeah, it almost feels like cheating with these little dudes, but I'm seriously amazed at how good/cute scarabs look with very little effort. Incidentally, they're done (fifth vow complete, for a total of 1518 pts):

med_gallery_225534_16611_252260.jpg

I'm not done though! I should receive my new bases tomorrow (was supposed to get them today), as well as magnets and magnetized sheets. I've started testing my new base design that has roughly the same colors as previously, but that matches my custom dynasty backstory better (also in progress). That'll be in another thread though.

Finally, I found a name for my dynasty: Tohakh! It's a reference to Toha Heavy Industries from the Blame universe and the necrons' love for "kh" in names.

We certainly do have a preference for the -kh, don’t they! I think I’m something of an outlier, Naculan doesn’t have that digraph. Sarnakh does though!

You could always change it to Nakhulan ;)

I could.

But that would be heresy.

Besides, I tend to pronounce it Nah-cu-lan, as opposed to Nakh-ulan. Bit more of a flowy c rather than a hard k.

So I'm finally at a point where I can work on my models. Should get the indomitus necrons done by the 8th. Have to have surgery Thursday to get a kidney stone removed but that shouldn't get me down to long. Pushing thru!
