Four guys who want to win at painting... AT ALL COSTS!

Change of Plans!

My best inspirations come in the shower.  I was thinking of all those little projects I wanted to get done in the next little bit, and honestly, I was feeling pretty blah about them.  So that got me to thinking: Well, when have I been most productive?  Deadlines always help, but do having a painting contest.  Maybe not the 'first place, second place' kind of contest, but more of the "Can I actually do this?" contest.  Like my Space Wolves, done just to prove an army could be painted from scratch by the deadline, or my Eldar, the first time to get things ready for a big Apocalypse game, the second time, to keep up points-wise with Wallshammer when he did his "Way-too-many Orks in a month" challenge.

And then it hit me: I need to push myself.  Finishing these little projects isn't pushing me, nor is painting more Space Wolves (I have enough painted for the league, and I'm not even enjoying the league = no motivation).

So, starting the day after Halloween, prepare yourself for:


I'm going to get ALL the rest of my Eldar painted... in a month!

The gauntlet has been thrown down. Wallshammer, Fear... your move.


  1. You can never have too many orks!

    I shall be announcing mine soon. A hint? I am doing it for The Lady!

  2. Also, lemme note he challenges me in a month where I am getting surgery and have very little free time. COWARD!

    But still, get your Eldar done. I dare you.

  3. I figured you'd have more time this month, since you'll be spending a good chunk of the month on your butt.

    But that's okay, if you're not man enough for the challenge, I understand.

    Your conciliatory tampons are in the mail.
