2019 Monthly Painting Challenge - March

Recommended Posts

Another month begins!

This is the thread for the March 2019 Monthly Painting Challenge. I’m Caedrus, and I’ll be your host for 2019. March: a change of Season! Whether it be a Southern Hemisphere autumn, or a Northern Hemisphere Spring, change is in the air! I've made a small change to TOS values (see below) based on feedback from @Athiko. Please let me know if this sounds OK to people!

If you’d like to be part of this challenge, please introduce yourself below, and post what level you’ll be painting at! The painters who have already signed up have their details put into the spreadsheet here.

The 2019 Wyrd Monthly Painting Challenge is all about:

  1. Having fun painting!
  2. Motivating yourself, and encouraging others.
  3. Being part of a great, friendly community.
  4. Giving and receiving constructive advice. And, finally:
  5. Getting some pigment onto plastic!

This is not a competition in any way.

The pledge categories are the following:

  • Minion: you paint at least 1 soulstone worth of Malifaux miniatures each month
  • Enforcer: you paint at least 6 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month
  • Henchman: you paint at least 11 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month
  • Master: you paint at least 16 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month
  • Tyrant: you paint at least 31 soulstones worth of Malifaux miniatures each month

The rules:

  • The challenge started on January 1st, 2019. 
  • Models count for the month in which you finish them. You can finish painting a model that you started before the beginning of the month.
  • Everyone may fail to make their monthly goal twice and stay in the challenge. This is using a mulligan.
  • You can choose to go down a pledge level during the year, but you cannot move up.
  • You may choose to sign up during a later month for the challenge but this means that you'll have to use one or two of the aforementioned mulligans: e.g. if you start in February, one mulligan will automatically be used because you missed January; if you start in March, two mulligans will already be used; you can’t start in April. This means if you want to join / start the challenge, you must meet every month's pledge from now on!
  • A model is considered painted if it is (1) based (even glued onto a black base counts); (2) tournament legal. That means that if it's a translucent, based model, it counts automatically. If it is any opaque material, then the standard is: Every part of the miniature painted, and three colours minimum.

Miniature Values:

Malifaux

  • Almost all models count as their Soulstone value;
  • Masters count for 15 soulstones.
  • Zero cost models count for 5 soulstones.
  • Proxies (constructed from Wyrd models) count for their proxy value.

The Other Side

  • Titans count for 25 soulstones.
  • Commanders count for 15 soulstones.
  • Adjunct models count for 5 soulstones.

Otherwise:

  • A 30mm base model is worth 5 soulstones.
  • A 40mm base model is worth 7 soulstones.
  • A 50mm base model is worth 10 soulstones.

Terrain

  • Terrain is worth 5SS per 50mm base in area.
  • Custom tokens are worth 5SS per 50mm base in area.
  • A terrain board is worth 100 Soulstones.

3rd Edition?

If Malifaux 3rd Edition hits in 2019, then the month that the PDF version is available, we will begin using the new values if they differ from M2E.

How to upload images?

  1. Go to imgur.com, and create an account.
  2. Click on your account, click on 'images', and then 'add images'.
  3. Click on your uploaded image. You'll see a whole bunch of link options.
  4. Click on the 'copy' button next to 'direct link'.
  5. Go to your Wyrd Forum thread.
  6. Paste (CTRL-V) at the appropriate spot.
  7. The image should appear, resized appropriately to the page.

My very best for March!

Caedrus.

Thanks @Caedrus for sorting out the TOS costing, makes it much easier :)

For March I pledge Jaakuna Ubume and 3x Crooked Men for 21ss - Stretch goals will be warped, warped and more warped

I will start by completing what I'd initially planned for February - Cherry Bomb for 8ss to get me started.

Once she's done, I will work on Marcus' crew. I will be painting two boxes simultaneously and want to start with Cojos. I'll post some WIP pics once Cherry is finished and the guerillas are assembled.

@Caedrus Your text is invisible on the white theme. You've probably kept the formatting when copy-pasting. At first, I thought the post was a place holder :D

 

To begin with, I pledge to finish my Asura Roten proxy + to paint a farm house. I should continue on metal Pandy, but the sculpt is not easy to work with, so I'll probably just start something completely unrelated. Such as building a pig totem for my Nekima that's still in her box, that would be fun ;)

My pledge for March will be a Draugr and a Shieldbearer. I think. I might change my mind. Or just paint more minis. 😝

Hmm, I shall change the text to a mid-grey soon, to be both-theme-friendly. Thanks for the heads-up! 👍

I'm also starting a Marcus box for this month... though if I knew Viruk was doing the same I'd of chosen a different theme so I didn't have to look bad in comparison, haha.

I'd like to join at the henchmen level if that's alright. Meant to join last month but I was too busy painting. 😉

Going to try and paint up a fire team of Warped from TOS to test out a paint scheme. Will probably end up painting more than that but lets see how it goes.

Note that this bunch of stuff is not meant to be this month's pledge, I'm gonna try and do as much as I can and the whole bunch is just to show that they're still unpainted.

Made the February pledge goal in the dying seconds of the month....so....this month my main pledge will be to try and avoid doing that again 

My pledge for March will be to continue with the Other Side so (a) finish Fenton Brahms who I started last month but who had to go back for a repaint because I wasn't happy with it....then I will finish the other five Broken who I started on last month

Then....an Immolated Rhino - yay !...who doesn't like saying "Immolated Rhino " ? 😄

Stretch goal will be to start on The Doomseekers...can't wait !

Alright, count me in for this painting challenge at Tyrant Level - I've got a bunch of TOS to paint up.  ;)

To start with, here's what's on my desk - Adeodatos, 3 (almost finished) Portals and 3 Raving Madmen for 60SS total.

My plan is Howard Langston and Angel Eyes from scratch, and finishing touches on Scion of black blood, nurse heartsbane and an orderly (I did them a bit for a game I had mid month ). Also a wizkids D&D ranger, fwiw.

Hi there!

For March I'm starting the Perdita crew, such a lovely family! 

* Perdita Ortega: 15 SS

* Santiago Ortega: 8 SS 

* Francisco Ortega: 9 SS

* Papa Loco: 7 SS

For a total of 39 SS (few models but quite pricey).

In case I finish them in time I have some non-Wyrd models to paint (consequence of being a friendly drunk), if I manage to finish those too I'll continue with the Ortega family, but I wouldn't bet on it.

That would make it look like crap in both themes. How about just leaving text color unmarked?

¿Qué? 😅

I am pledging a metal, older sculpt of Ramos. 15ss. I paid a few dollars for it. If that sounds over-costed, I should point out that it was a pre-M3E purchase. 🙄

@Rathnard - that's some very neat sculpting/conversion work done there to get your three Raving Madmen to all look different...I really like the vivid colors in the Stalking Portals as well...am already looking forward to following your progress
