April Headline Challenge - Who's up for it?

Postby Epic Duck Mike » Tue Apr 03, 2012 10:23 pm

After a great Deathmatch against Midge last month and a narrow victory, I've now got to take on a new challenger for April. Usually we sort this out in advance, but last month was a bit hectic real-life-wise... so we're going to be a few painting days short.

Who would like to challenge me in the Headline Match this month? I'm open to miniature suggestions, GW or PP miniatures preferred (due to the shorter timeline and their better availability). I also have the following models waiting for paint:

Dark Eldar Succubus
Dark Eldar Sslyth
Trollbloods Gunnbjorn
*lots* of Legion of Everblight
Vanguard Veteran Marine (Mk6 helmet)

I definitely would, might be a good break because I haven't really been up to painting lately, been a bit discouraged on painting some sanguinary guard,not sure if I'll be up to par, but I might as well test my painting skills. Any chance we could paint something different, imperial guard, possibly Eldar. Thanks.

I've got a good number of Eldar models kicking around:
Eldrad
Striking Scorpions
Fire Dragons
Banshees
Dark Reapers
Farseer
Warlocks (I have 8-9 of these, this would be my pick)

I think I have a frame of Warriors as well, but I'd like to save them for a project.

I can do a sternguard marine against tour vanguard if no one else jumps in on this? Im doing another member of the squad for a deathmatch and the full squad for a heresy competition anyway?

My apologies to WandalfTheGhite, Dez and I ended up arranging a challenge that I couldn't refuse off-thread. Durf, I'd love to go toe-to-toe with you again in the future - if I remember right, aren't you the one who initially dethroned me a year or so ago? ;)

Stevey, we just DM'd back in February... you'll have to wait a bit ;)
