Challenge Complete

Happy New Year and welcome to 2010 :) The most feared Painting Challenge on the internet is making a return for its third successive year! Welcome to the 2010 B&C Librarium Painting Challenge (affectionately known as the LPC). For those newcomers to the B&C or to the Challenge, The Librarium Painting Challenge serves as a chance for gamers to make a New Year's Resolution to get all those minis they received for Christmas painted before the end of March. So what prizes await those who succeed and what punishments will be inflicted upon those who fail in their efforts? Read on!

Each entrant takes the Librarium Challenge Vow, as seen below, and chooses the amount of models they wish to enter. This can range from a single miniature to a 3000pt army. There are no restrictions on painting ability, the standard required is merely whatever you can achieve (otherwise I wouldn't have been able to enter in the last two challenges ;) ) in the timeframe available. So what reasons are there to enter the Librarium Painting Challenge? Motivation. In this case, there is both the carrot and the stick. The root vegetable of your choice is simply the glory and camaraderie (with approximately 125 participants last year) of the Challenge, not to mention the cool signature awarded upon completion. The stick in this case is the Challenge's Failure signature and losing your soul to the Librarium owing the Librarium an article (not really that much of a punishment...). So there should be plenty of motivation whichever way you swing :)

Please note that only board appropriate minis may be entered. This means no xenos or non-PA models. If you're unsure on whether or not your models come under this clause, feel free to drop me a PM to clarify. Please note that Epic, BFG, Inquisitor and Space Hulk minis are all welcome, as long as they qualify as board appropriate. It does not matter what stage of completion the mini is in, as long as it is less than approximately 50% complete. Basecoat to unassembled to one Inquisitor's leg painted, all are welcome.

The Challenge and its Signup begins on January 15th 2010, with the last day to sign up being February 15th. The completion date for models is the 31st of March, when you must post photos of you finished Vow model(s) or face humiliation and shame from your successful comrades! There is also a requirement for at least two WIP updates in between your signup and the posting of photos.

I, [insert name here] of the [insert subforum name here], vow on the honour of my Chapter to paint and present at least [units/models amount here] on or before the 31st of March, 2010. I promise to provide at least two WIP updates, preferably with pictures, in that time. I vow that if I should fail, I will provide the Librarium with an article and wear the Signature of Shame until my penitence period is done.

This year, we have also introduced a Subforum Challenge. When you take your Vow, you select which subforum your army hails from (ie. the Throne of Skulls for World Eaters, the Black Templar subforum for Black Templars and the Liber Astartes subforum for DIY chapters). For every Vow completed, that subforum gains a point. The Subforum with the most points at the end gains the title of LPC Champions and a subforum specific Vow Completed and LPC Champion signature. The Challenge is on! Which subforum can claim ascendency? If you are unsure under which subforum your army falls under, just post your vow without a subforum but with a Chapter name so that I can sort it out for you.

Writing an article isn't as bad as it sounds really, as Librarium entries are a varied lot ranging from DIY Index Astartes articles thousands of words long to modelling tutorials with a handful of pictures to Codex Imperialis entries just a few dozen words long and we'll gladly accept any of those or anything else you can think of as submissions for the Librarium. We'd also encourage successful participants (and anyone else) to submit articles to the Librarium too. An obvious choice of article might be to catalogue your minis from whoa to go and to create a painting or modelling tutorial for the Librarium, be it a 'complete how to paint a Marine', or a 'quick & easy ways to paint bolters' type of article. There is also a link in my signature for the Dummy's Guide to Submitting Articles for those unaccustomed to using the Librarium. Please note that if you owe the Librarium an article and have not managed to put together one by the next Challenge, you will be barred from entering the LPC until an article is submitted.

Feel free to grab any member of the Librarium staff (look for +CODICIER+ or +LEXICANIUM+ under 'Group' under a member's avatar) for help on ideas for articles or help on formatting them folks, and also remember you can apply to join the Librarium as a Lexicanium by taking this simple test!

Once again, if you want to view the fun, mayhem and camaraderie invested in the Librarium Painting Challenge, check out the previous year's Challenge. Don't miss out on this once in a year chance ;)

As with every year, there will be a series of signatures for the Challenge, ranging from the infamous Failed signature to the more rarely seen Vow Completed signature. Special thanks to Naysmith for the use of his Librarian in this year's preliminary LPC Signature :tu:

How time has flown, i remember the first one like it was yesterday!

So I was a failure last year, can I call this the redemption?

I fall well into this category aswell. It was the wrong time of life for me so one could say i failed spectatularly :lol:

Now all is settled i have the spare time and drive to get something done, if i am allowed to enter that is! Think i'll be less ambitious as to the amount i agree to paint.

As can be seen, I failed in my Challenge... I also failed to submit an Article as penance! I think I shall have to redeem my soul this time around by entering, and completing, my Vow, and ALSO submitting an Article...

Incidentally, I did manage to finish the squads I Vowed for 2009... >< Just a lot later than I thought...

Just seeing everyone already committing themselves and I just got drawn into it.

I shall wait until the 15th to give my official vow.

What're the criteria for joining? Do we need to have a certain standing within the board like the admin challenge or do we just need to have a boatload of bare pewter and plastic and some free time to burn?

It's open to all and any that wish to participate :D However, this will be the last year that those who still owe the Librarium articles from the previous challenge will be allowed to participate. After that, if you fail and do not submit an article as per your vow, you will not be able to enter the following Librarium Painting Challenges until an article is submitted.
