    So here are the rules for the next painting challenge, take the time to read the fine prints this time around :D.

    Concept:
    Each contestant will enter a fully painted/based unit in the contest. At the end of the voting period, whoever has the most vote will win the Challenge.

    Rules:
    1) Each participant will send a picture of the unpainted unit at the beginning of the contest to Strewart. It can be primed.
    2) The unit you pick to paint must respect minimal/maximal unit size.
    3) Infantry, cavalry, monstrous infantry and monstrous cavalry are allowed. No monsters or monstrous beasts can be entered.
    4) Pictures of the painted unit must be sent to Strewart before August 12. Voting will open on the 13th and will last a week.

    Prize:
    - The prize for the winner is a 20 pound gift voucher at Mantic Games (http://www.manticgames.com/) which is enough to cover any small plastic unit they offer including shipping, or it can be put towards a larger order.
    - The participation prize is for anyone who submits an entry for the challenge (not who just says they will enter) and it is a random sprue of plastic models from Mantic games, it could be anything from 2 models to 10.

    I hope you guys enjoy this one as much as the last one. Strewart will be in charge of receiving pictures, putting up the polls and all that. If there are any questions about the challenge rules, ask me. If you plan on participating, please leave a post saying so :D.

    I'm in! I think I will paint a unit of Skink Cohorts with or without Kroxigor (probably without). When do I need to send my before Picture to Strewart?

    Fantastic! Thanks for continuing this challenge.

    Do we want to keep this to just Lizardmen or is it open to other Fantasy armies? What about 40K?

    Re: Lustria-Online's Unit Painting Challenge

    You need to send pictures of the unit you plan on painting to Strewart as soon as you decide which unit you want to enter. Miniatures can be primed but the unit as a whole must be a new project.

    As for the armies, I see no reason why this shouldn't be open. Last challenge saw some beastmen character, a space marine and a tomb guard. Just send the pictures of the unit you plan to paint to Strewart and make sure you respect the unit minimum size. Also, remember the categories that are allowed for this Unit Painting Challenge.

    It's nice to see already 3 forum members voice their interest in this challenge and I hope that we'll get to 10 participants like the Character Challenge :D.

    This sounds fun! Though i'm not a descent painter, I love challenges. Besides... Gives me incentive to finish a unit.

    Sadly, chariots don't qualify. Infantry, cavalry, monstrous infantry or monstrous cavalry only :(.

    Hopefully you still end up participating.

    Yep guys, thats right, Mantic Games has offered prize support for this challenge which is great of them! I will sticky this thread and make an announcement later. Lets get heaps of people involved!

    @n810, they will do a lizard army at some point. Busy working on their sci-fi line at the moment.

    That's awesome, Strewart!! My daughter is pulling me to do a unit of Wood Elves so she can start gaming with them (she's only 10, but she LOVES all things Warhammer Fantasy) so I'm going to let her pick which unit for the contest. My guess will be either Glade Guard or Glade Riders.

    Count me in - now just have to decide what to paint! Is this another secret squirrel challenge or can we broadcast what we'll be entering?

    Damn it! I just spent the last week painting a unit of Night Goblins, lol. Why couldn't you have announced this last weekend instead? :p

    I might still join in though, just need to decide which unit I want to paint next.

    Damn it! Both my saurus units and my TG have some guys who have been painted already!

    Im tempted to try with my krox. I've already painted 1 out of 6, so could I still enter a unit of 3? (ofc only including the ones painted during the challenge)


    What about a Slann? Its an infantry model isn't it....... ;P

    If I can't do the krox Ill probably stick to some skinks :D

    Another question here, does the base and/or movement tray have to be complete on the first pic we send? the unpainted one?
