I know the first update is august, but I might miss it and post WIP later, is that okay? Just the vechiles can be done right? So I do the titan and baneblade first, then I paint the mini's when I get them?

BTW how much does a titan, and a baneblade cost?

Pointwise, a Warhound Titan (the smallest Imperial Titan that has official rules) runs 810 points, a baneblade starts around 500 points. So is your pledge 2810 points for the year?

That would mean you would have to paint around 281 points each month for your pledge. That sound good?

Your 10% pledge for each month is due by the 14th. This first month, you have 1 month and 3 weeks to get your stuff together (we started on 6/23 and the first due date is 8/14) Work ahead a bit if you can. I have found that it is easier to think of everything as due on the first, but you have the extra days to track down a camera and doe the finishing touches to make the figure really shine. (or to be lazy and then paint like a madman those last few days)

Ok, that makes sense, thanks for clearing that up for me!

Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum, new to the game, but definitely not new to the miniatures. I've been fascinated by and trying to produce well-painted miniatures for over ten years. Unfortunately I never got very good.

Therefore, I have a Necron army planned to improve my painting skills as well as to learn the rules of the game. Once I feel confident that I won't ruin amazingly sculpted figures, I'll probably add some Chaos Space Marines to that list.

So my pledge is . . .

Warhammer 40K - Necron, 1500 points

Well seeing I managed to do a weekly pledge why not go the whole way and do an army pledge :)

Put me down for 1500 - Space Marines (will probs up this but its a target to complete for now)

Once I've sorted out the first part of the list I'll stick a thread in

For the record, I am changing one of my pledges, instead of 1500 points of chaos, I am going loyalist and pledging 2500 points of Dark Angels which will probably be Deathwing Heavy overall.

Good thing I just bought 3 extra bottles of Gryphonne Sepia! Now I have one bottle that is more than half gone and 4 bottles ready to go.

SAme, I dun think I'll get all that in time, maybe next yr, or half way through, cause I'm a bit low right now, and my money box isn't right where I want it. Plz cancel it, but leave the titan and banelade!

I'm sure an Awe-inspiring and totally rocking Moderator like Norsehawk, wouldn't hold a grudge against a poor little gamer like myself, if I say wanted to change my pledge once more, :lol:

Say 2000pts, Night goblins?? ....please and thank you??
