For the past few days, We have been setting up something fun. Fellow blogger and tweeter/Warmonger Ryan (@RTGamer) and I have decided to run a 30 Day Challenge!
The contest is this: Assemble and paint to the usual army standard 25 models, in 30 days.
The Winner get gloating rights, the loser must change the color of their blog to pink for two weeks. Yes, this means the Top Ten would be on a pink background. I had better not lose!
He is painting some Menoth troops and some other stuff. I am painting Red Scorpion Space Marines. Two 10-man tactical squads and a 5-man devastator squad to be exact.
At first, it seems unfair. Red Scorpions are simple to paint, especially the way I do them... However, we agreed that this is countered by the fact that space marines are a lot more involved during the assembly stage.
There is one other hiccup to deal with. I dont have enough Red Scorpion Chapter shoulder pads for all 25 models! So, Ryan graciously agreed to allow me to skip that on a few of them. Ill just paint the pads and glue them on after I get some more. I think I will be using up every single RS resin trooper bit I have during this event!
So, in preparation, here is a picture of where these models stand right now!
