Well I didn't know who'd won the most votes as it was anonymous and I hadn't gone back to check. By "winning" I mean that I assume that Elvis is saying you get first choice what to paint.

Is that right?!

Checked the original vote post - Elvis didn't anounce anything there - this thread is the first since the votes so I guess he didn't mention anything. He did PM me telling me so though and aksed me to pick what I wanted to paint. That's before I realised we had to pay a fortune to enter this comp! :lol: Think I am going to enter the commander (captain?) and a troop squad, although I wanna see if I can get a cheap squad first. (Am broke... :( ) Won't be doing any vehicles - Have 6 rhinos of my own that need painting - can't face doing any more than that!

CONFUSION REIGNS!!!! It would have gone smoothly if i had not travelled across the UK today :P however your all on me!

apologies,

voting thread updated: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=4447&p=47680#p47680 , look to last thread.

Also the Orange trim doesnt have to be bright orange, could be more of a burned metallic orange?

Elvis

Ha-Hah! All becomes clear! Sorry Elvis - Think Matt and I are just champing at the bit and being over eager!

Having spent the afternoon getting started on these, I can compliment Herne for the Colour scheme, it works really well.

Just a check in - are people still working toward this? Heard nothing for months...... Worried I won't be able to get mine done with only a week to go, but don't want to sweat it if it's died the death?.....

I have a PM from Elvis, he can't make it now and will post a followup with new deadlines. I think we need to extend this to the next meetup in March.

My squad is assembled but still waiting for even a vague sighting of paint. I need to get the enthusiasm back for painting again...

I think we need WIP shots from those who are working on them, to give incentives.

I will get pics later today.
