2013 Army Painting Challange January & Lists

Post by Fighting Gopher » Thu Dec 27, 2012 9:59 pm

Okay folks, here we are. Post your list here if you are part of the challange posted here. Please post by the end of January, this gives you time to think it out, what you want etc... Make sure you follow the rules for posting lists.

Also, this is where you post for the month your updates. Pictures are a must. We have to see you doing something. heck, it can be just building the Army but there has to be something. I will be posting a new topic each month. To give people time in the event that life happens, you can post in the month up to 2 weeks after the end of the month.

Monthly ideas to help push you to complete things. You are not forced at all to go by this but if you needed the added motivation, here you go.

January - List building, build the army, get a general idea of where you are going with this, then paint one of your core choices, show us where you are going with it.
February - Core/Troop unit or Platoon(FoW), Unit in Warmachine
March - leaders - A character or two, for FoW, get your command teams done, Warmachine Casters
April - Support Units - Fast attack/Elite (40K), Special/Rare (Fantasy), Support (FoW), Light Warjacks/Beasts (Warmachine)
May - The Heavies - Monsters and tanks (Fantasy/40K), Tank Platoons (FoW), Heavy Jack/Beasts (Warmachine), Clossal works as well.
June - Cores - Got to get back to them, they're important
July Cores - There's a lot of them.
August - Support Units
September - Characters
October - Centre Piece - One thing you really want to stick out in your army, maybe it's an artillary piece, maybe an objective it's up to you.
November - The Cores.
December - Finishing touches, any of those things you fine are remaining and need to be crammed in before Christmas. Has to be done by the 31st.

So mine is Ogres, I think I may paint more than 3000 points because of how low of a model count it really is.

Characters
Greasus Goldtooth
Tyrant
Slaughter Master
Firebelly
Bruiser – Battle Standard
1230 point in characters with no upgrades yet…..hmmmm I will just put it as no upgrades to make it fair lol.

CORES:
6 Bulls – Additional Hand Weapons
6 Bulls – Iron Fists
12 Iron Guts
30 gnoblers

SPEACIAL
4 Lead Belchers
6 ManEaters
6 Mournfang Calvary

At this point, it is 3030 points with no upgrade, full commands etc...

I will most likely also paint;
1 Giant
1 Stonehorn
1 Thundertusk
1 Scraplauncher
1 Ironblaster
Warhammer 40K - 41,000 points
Warhammer Fantasy - 27000 wounds (I'm guessing)
Flames of War - 6000 points
Warmachine Cryx - 100 points
Hordes Circle - 240 points

Here's what I'll be shooting for, it's a little over but I think that'll be ok, I don't know if anyone else thought of this, but I was thinking that it would be fun to edit our lists by crossing off what we have finished ( maybe post a single pic too?) that way we can show our progress simply for anyone who looks at this thread.

HQ: 430
Archon w/ huskblade
Heamonculus Ancient w/ shattershard
4 Heamonculi w/ liquifiers

Elites: 575
10 Incubi w/ klavex
9 grotesques w/ three liquifiers

Troops: 560
40 kabalite warriors w/ 4 splinter cannons
10 Wyches w/ haywire grenades

Fast Attack: 343
9 reaver jetbikes w/ 3 heat lances
5 scourges 

Heavy Support: 570
2 Taloi w/ chainflails and haywireblasters
2 Ravagers
1 Cronos w/ spiritprobe + spiritvortex

Dedicated Transports: 530
7 Raiders
2 Venoms

Total: 3009

Herm... I'm in a delicate position here, I have over lots of things to be painted, but none of it forms into a cohesive list of any kind (the models cross several games and rulesets, etc.) What I would propose is that I jump in the month's theme, and just make sure that I keep up with the points total. By my math, this means I'll need to do a unit that has around 275 points a month to keep me up with the points total.

I'll be pulling mostly from:
Fantasy - LM, Bretonnians, Chaos Demons
40k - Space Marines (I can't escape them!) Tau, Chaos Demons, Tyranids
WarmaHordes - Trollbloods, RoM

The idea is you do 3000 points of 'stuff', or 100 or something for wmh, the points level is to present a goal, a finishing line. the army list itself is just to keep , motivation up and act like a check list.

At least that's how i interpret it. Good luck everyone! :)
