I'll need to check on PL later, my priority is painting him up for Saturday's first game with the new codex :tongue.:

Ok, for real now instead of accidentally vowing to early.

I vow 15 Termgants with Devourers at 6PL and 3 Venomthrope at 5PL.

Oh we are starting, not that I will have much painting time for a while anyway, but here is my first (and probably only) vow for the event. Due to sparse painting time this month and next this will probably not be finished until near the end of the event in general.

  • 15 Termgants with Devourers at 6PL
  • 3 Venomthrope at 5PL

I started painting this army in last year’s event, and got a lot done, so hoping to finish it this year. Aside from the listed and pictured units I also hope to complete 3 Warriors, 3 Tyrant Guard, 2 Lictors, 6 Ripper Swarms, 5 Geenstealers and some other odds and ends, but those models do not have enough conversion bits on them to be B&C suitable (insufficient 40kines), so I will just do them along side my official vow.

On another note, in for a penny, in for a pound of biomass.

 

I Xenith, Swarmlord of Hive Fleet Jabberwocky, vow to paint One Tyrannocyte, One Mawloc, One Carnifex, One Exocrine and One Parasite for a total of 34 Power Level before the 22nd August 2022.

June and July are really busy for me, but I hope I can knock some of these out at the weekends.

I'm in..... So here we goooo......:woot:

 

I Brother Lunkhead, for the greater glory of Hive Fleet Zorak pledge to build and/or paint to completion:

  • 3 Carnifexes (PL 21)
  • 20 Gargoyles (PL 8)
  • 1 Parasite of Mortex (PL 4)

for a total of 24 models and PL 33 by 22 August 2022:sweat:

I managed to eke out 34 models for last year's challenge, so I'm relatively confident ("relatively" being the operative word) that I can manage 24 this year. Thanks to the new Tyranid Codex, last year's models have been rendered invalid as a viable army:down: But, this new pledge should bring my army back in line with the rules:thumbsup:... assuming I finish that is:whistling:  

 

 

 FOR ZORAK!

....and PIE:drool:

That's a great vow Lunk looking forward to seeing them done, especially now fexes are decent. I got my first 9th game in (batrep here if anyone is interested) and was pleased with the improvements, the Parasite even did well for New Model Syndrome. I've updated my vow posts with PL levels (very low apparently :lol: )

Well in the interest of getting in before the site shut down I, Brother Argent, vow to complete the vow I failed last year and complete a massive

 

10x Hormagaunts (for 4PL I think)

 

by the challenges end.  I cant get a pic at the moment as they are in my sons bedroom and he is asleep for the night.  If I get a chance before the site shut down I will.

Great vows all, and our first completion goes to WarriorFish!

Just make sure you get that photo soon, then post the unpainted pic in this topic when the site comes up!

Good to see more vows  coming in. Great looking Carnifex, Brother Xenith.

Sad to say my May/June attempt to build and paint a Parasite of Mortex was a bust. My faithful old dog Snickers has come down with severe diabetes and this last month's time has been dedicated to treating his condition. Now that I've got the treatment rhythm down, I'm confident I'll be able to finish all of my models and complete the challenge.

So I'm wrapping my Parasite of Mortex into the June/July phase of the challence along side my 3 Carnifexes. Pictures will be up soonish.

Good luck everyone!
