  1. ROYAL AWAKENING & A BUG'S LIFE May 23rd - August 22nd 2022 This is the official announcement of not one, but TWO Xenos painting events: A Bug's Life and Royal awakening, which will occur over the next 3 months from May 23rd until August 22nd. Both events have run before, but this year, they're running together, an against one another! The side with the highest power level of completed vows wins and gets bragging rights. This is purely a fun event, with the end reward being more lovely painted models for you to enjoy on the table, with shout-outs to anyone performing spectacularly! I will be leading the Tyranids A Bug's Life challenge, while Daimyo-Phaeron Lenoch will be leading the Necrons Royal Awakening.Visit the Faction specific hubs for more information and to join in by making your vows: Tyranids: A Bug's Life Headquarters Necrons: Royal Awakening Headquarters FORMAT Anyone who has entered B&C painting events before will be familiar with the format: In the respective topics, make a vow in a post to commit to painting the models you wish to, and share a photo(s) of the unpainted model(s) you wish to paint, along with their name and power level. Before the end of the event, share a photo of your painted model, finished to Battle Ready Standard, as defined by GW on the previous link. Basically, that's all parts painted with: Base, shade paint, then technical on the base. If you haven't decided on a basing scheme yet, don't worry, but obviously based models look better! If you like, models can be cross-entered into other events such as Grotsmasha's Monthly Painting Challenge, so you can get extra kudos and share your work with those outside the respective Section. TIMING The event will run for three months from Monday 23rd May until Midnight GMT Monday 22nd August (3 calendar months), after which we'll have a showcase and a tot up of who's managed to paint the most in that time! The 'active' month will reset on the first Monday near the 22nd. PLEDGES We'll each pledge to paint at least one model to be painted over the course of the event, but your vow can be as small or large as you like. You get 4 repeat vows to play with, for 5 in total. Your vow can be as simple or ornate as you like, e.g.: I, Xenith, Commander of the Hive, pledge to paint a unit of three Biovores to the value of 6PL or ~150 points before the 22nd August 2022. Accompany that text with a picture of the vowed models, and you're good to go! If you like, post WIP photos in this thread, or start your own WIP log in the Tyranids or Necrons section to track your progress. SOCIAL We'll also be sharing your work on social media - if you have an IG account, use the #bolterandchainsword, #ABugsLife and #RoyalAwakening hashtags and you might see your models featured on the B&C accounts - make sure to follow @bolter.and.chainsword BADGE In honour of your taking part, there are signature badges which all entrants can proudly display to show your allegiance (and to promote the competition). Futher badges will be awarded based on level of participation and completion, and will be presented at the end of the event. SUMMARY Make a vow in the appropriate faction topic stating what you want to paint, with a photo and point values. Paint the models. Share photos of the painted models in that thread before the 22nd August. Repeat steps 1-3 until you've done it 5 times, or until the 22nd August!
  2. A BUG'S LIFE 2022 A Monthly Tyranids Painting Challenge Hello and welcome to the second official moderately low-stakes painting event for the Tyranid forum! This is purely a fun event, with the end reward being more lovely painted models for you to enjoy on the table, with shout-outs to anyone performing spectacularly! FORMAT Anyone who has entered B&C painting events before will be familiar with the format: In this thread, make a vow in a post to commit to painting the models you wish to, and share a photo of the unpainted model(s) you wish to paint for the event, along with their name and power level. By the 22nd August, share a photo of your painted model, finished to Battle Ready Standard, as defined by GW on the previous link. Basically, that's all parts painted with: Base, shade paint, then technical on the base. *NEW RULE* Over the course of this time everyone involved will have 5 vows where they can pledge any amount of models at a time. A vow must be completely finished before a new one is made. Badges (and bragging rights) will be awarded for the following categories*: Ripper - the badge of shame, all vows broken Gaunt - participation and completion of any vow Stealer - completion of 25* or more Power Level Warrior - completion of 50* or more Power Level Broodlord - completion of 75* or more Power Level Tyrant - completion of 100* or more Power Level *TBC If you like, models can be cross-entered into other events like Grotsmasha's Monthly Painting Challenge, so you can get extra kudos and share your work with those outside the Tyranids Section. TIMING The event will run for three months from Monday 23rd May until Midnight GMT Monday 22nd August (3 calendar months), after which we'll have a showcase and a tot up of who's managed to paint the most in that time! The 'active' month will reset on the first Monday of each month. This topic will open on 23rd May, and will be used to record vows and progress over the event. PLEDGES Over the 3 months, we'll each pledge to paint at least one model with the TYRANIDS keyword [including all models from the Tyranids Codex, Genestealer Cults Codex, and Forge World Books], however a soft target should be 10 Power Level or roughly 200 points per month. If you can stick to this and achieve it, you'll have a 30 Power Level Tyranids force to play some games with or reinforce an existing army! Your pledge can be as simple or ornate as you like, e.g.: I, Xenith, Commander of the Hive, pledge to paint a unit of three Biovores to the value of 6PL or ~150 points in the month of June 2021 Accompany that text with a picture of the pledged models, and you're good to go! If you like, post WIP photos in this thread, or start your own WIP log in the Tyranids section. BADGE In honour of your taking part, there's a signature badge in progress which all entrants can proudly display (and to promote the competition). 2022 badge That's all really! Just like the Hive Fleets, this post will evolve as time goes on and new challenges arise, and this post will record the entries into the challenge, so check on your progress here. SUMMARY At the start of the event, make a pledge in this thread what you want to paint, with a photo and point values. Paint the models Before the end of the event, share photos of the painted models in this thread Repeat steps 1-3 up to 4 more times. ??? Profit Smite that grey pile!

  6. Gribblies are back! This is just a quick heads up, but I'm looking at running another A Bug's Life painting Challenge this year - probably starting in a month's time to let people gather resources and get to grips with the new book. This one will be 3 months (~mid May - mid July) instead of 5 months this time, as many lost steam over the summer, 3 will keep us focussed and then let us take it easy over summer!
