Hi all,

 

Who would like to take part in a small escalation style painting challenge, to grow your horde over the coming months?

 

At this point I'm just gauging interest in a small painting challenge to grow our hordes and keep up motivation. We've had a lot of new interest and Hive Fleets sprining up in the wake of 9th, however things have slowed down. Not going to lie, I just started a Crusade Campaign with my nids, so will be trying to get motivated to paint a new unit per month or so, and thought people might want to join in!

 

Who'd be up for small monthly painting pledges of a unit/200pts/10 Power or so of models to try and get ourselves equipped with the painted hordes of our dreams?

 

No pressure with this one, and the reward is an awesome painted army at the end. If anyone wants to join in, I'll convert this topic to the event topic, we can get started in early May perhaps?

If this included Genestealer Cults I'd be down.

Xenith, great idea!

I’m all over this. I need some motivation to work on my Nids atm so this would be perfect.

Personally I think a unit each month seems like a decent commitment without adding too much pressure.

Hope this takes off.

I'd need to know specifics first, time is the main issue and I am finishing other projects currently (or trying to). I don't think I can commit to too much regularly.

Why not, they're all biomass, after all. Maybe a TYRANID keyword criteria might work.

Me too, and glad to count you in!

Realistically, it'll be a model/unit/whatever per month starting in a month or two. As it's 'crusade' theme, it wouldn't even have to be full units at once, say you want to add 5 hormagaunts to reinfoce a unit you already have, that would be ok.

I'm sure I could manage at least one model a month :P

I got plenty of unbuilt nids waiting for their turn... among them a tyrannofex begging to be turned into a Dimachaeron.

Sounds like a fun idea, Xenith!

Corruption is our armor. Infection is our weapon. Immortality is our reward.

I’m in for the spirit of it.  I just started a post about trying schemes and seeing how they look.  I’ve noticed tournaments are being scheduled and it would be fun to bring some bugs to it.

Great to see everyone's enthusiasm, I'll think on an appropriate start date and progress with this.

To give you an idea of timing, I'm thinking an official announcement on the 1st May, with a month to get involved and gather models, than commitments starting from 1st June - Naturally you can paint stuff earlier!

Having managed to nab a secondhand army on the cheap that needs repainting, this would be rad.
