A BUG'S LIFE
A Monthly Tyranids Painting Challenge
Smite that grey pile!
Hello and welcome to the first official low-stakes painting event for the Tyranid forum!
This is purely a fun event, with the end reward being more lovely painted models for you to enjoy on the table, with shout-outs to anyone performing spectacularly!
Anyone who has entered B&C painting events before will be familiar with the format: In this thread, make a pledge post to commit to painting the models you wish to, and share a photo of the model(s) you wish to paint for that month, along with their name and power level, before the end of the month, share a photo of your painted model, finished to Battle Ready Standard, as defined by GW on the previous link. Basically, that's all parts painted with: Base, shade paint, then technical on the base.
If you like, models can be cross-entered into other events like Grotsmasha's Monthly Painting Challenge, so you can get extra kudos and share your work with those outside the Tyranids Section.
The event will run for five months from Wednesday 9th June until Monday 1st November 2021, after which we'll have a showcase and a tot up of who's managed to paint the most in that time! The 'active' month will reset on the first Monday of each month.
Each month, we'll each pledge to paint at least one model with the TYRANIDS keyword [including all models from the Tyranids Codex, Genestealer Cults Codex, and Forge World Books], however a soft target should be 10 Power Level or roughly 200 points. If you can stick to this and achieve it, you'll have a 50 Power Level Tyranids Crusade force to play some games with!
Your pledge can be as simple or ornate as you like, e.g.:
I, Xenith, Commander of the Hive, pledge to paint a unit of three Biovores to the value of 6PL or ~150 points in the month of June 2021
Accompany that text with a picture of the pledged models, and you're good to go! If you like, post WIP photos in this thread, or start your own WIP log in the Tyranids section.
In honour of your taking part, there's a signature badge in progress which all entrants can proudly display (and to promote the competition).
That's all really! Just like the Hive Fleets, this post will evolve as time goes on and new challenges arise, and this post will record the entries into the challenge, so check on your progress here.
- At the start of the month, make a pledge in this thread what you want to paint, with a photo and point values.
- Paint the models
- Before the end of the month, share photos of the painted models in this thread
- Repeat steps 1-3
