Exciting Times!! Our New Models are just on the Horizon! Please! Do yourself a favor, and Dont make a pledge unless you have the models in Hand.. NOW LETS PAINT SOME OGRES!!
Its the September Painting Challenge!
Just joining in? The idea is, you make a promise to paint and/or convert a given number of models at the beginning of the month, and report back with your progress, if and when you manage to complete it. From here on out we will refer to this as your "Pledge
"! The Rules:
- All Pledges will be frozen After the 10th Day of the Month. There is no changing of *any* pledge after day 10. Pledges are still accepted after the 10th of the month, but they can not be changed once they are made.
- When you finish your pledge you will be rewarded by the bronzing of your name on the List of pledges below. If you would like You can then go on to add a Bonus pledge and look really impressive. However, your name can not be bronzed before the freezing of the Pledges on the 10th. Any additions to your pledge made before the 10th go onto your initial pledge and will not count as a Bonus pledge.
- We need to know The number of Models when you post your pledge. 3, 8, 10, or even 100.. Saying "A unit" is not acceptable..
post The progression of your work ((pictures if at all possible)). One of the best things about this thread is watching everyone's work come together. It's perfectly fine if you don't post any photos, however. Feel free to make separate posts, and then link into this thread so that others can comment directly in your own thread in the Butchers cauldron or your Gnoblog.FAQ Q: So I can Only do Ogre Kingdoms or GW Minis, for my pledge? A: No. There isn't anything stopping you from building and/or painting anything you like, However this the Ogre Stronghold, I think most of us would prefer to see Ogre models. If you're working on one of your other Armies, and/or any other Models please feel free to make a Pledge.
Q: I need to change my Pledge!
A: well.. You have until the 10th day of the month.
Q: What if I don't have a camera?
A: We operate on the honour system. If you say you did it, we believe you. There are no prizes, so you only get the satisfaction of lying on the internet if you choose to do so.
Q: Will you do one of these every month?
A: That's the goal... We'll do one of these close to the beginning of every month...
Q: What if I finish my pledge but decide to do more?
A: Paint away! If you mean, can you get a head start on next month, I guess so. But it's not as big of an accomplishment to make a pledge with 75% of the project painted at the start of the month... Thats not to say that sometimes the last 25% of the project your working on Is not more than worth being a pledge of its own..
Q. I have not completed my Pledge for the past Few months, should I still enter?
A. You bet! The idea behind a painting challenge is to develop some discipline as to what you're going to build or paint. Part of the challenge is to learn what you can complete within a given month, and what you can't. If you find you're not able to complete your pledge for the month, then reduce the size of it.
Q. What if I get my Pledge done early?
A: Well, if you get it done early, you can try to make a Bonus pledge where you can add an additional challenge only after the existing work is completed. No bonus prizes to be won, but you will get the respect of everybody. Additionally, this can be a way to make sure you don't overdue your original pledge..
