It's been a long hiatus for me, but I think it's now time again for my Personal Painting Challenge!

So this'll be my first PPC of 2016. And what better way to kick start my 2016 PPC then to follow in the footsteps of my first challenge.
Yep the theme for this Personal Painting Challenge is "Repainted".
Just like in my first challenge all the candidates follow the FOC, and are models that I painted once apon a time and really need a new coat of paint. Basically just older models that need to match my new legion colors.
I haven't painted that much so far this year. Just me finishing up the FailWinner prize from my holiday Xmas PPC. So I'm a little out of practice. So a nice simple repainting challenge is just what I need to get back into the swing of things.
So the candidates this time are:
HQ choice - One CSM Daemon Prince.
You might remember this guy from my Halloween PPC. And as nice as he turned out, I have to be honest, I screwed up.
When I first modeled this guy I designed him with a more Tzneetch like vibe. But when I was getting the models ready for the painting challenge, I wanted to paint the Bloodletters and have a Khorne daemon prince to match them. So this DP model just kinda got rushed into being painted as a Khorne daemon. But I really just wanted him as a caster style.
So he's gonna get a new color to make him more Tzneetchy.
Troop choice - 4 CSM troops and 1 Chaos Lord.
If you recall from PPC #1, I painted 5 regular csm troops. This time around the troops will be the remaining 4 of the squad. An Aspiring Champion, 2 csm troops with plasma guns and a troop carrying an icon of Nurgle.
And because I want to keep the choices in groups of 5, I'm adding my custom Khorne champion in the troops choice.
Elites choice - 5 CSM Terminators.
These guys got painted very early in my hobby career. Just done up in basic black legion colors. I think it's time for my own legion to get some terminators.
Fast choice - 5 Warp Talons.
And because like my first PPC, I didn't have any fast attack options that need to be "repainted" persay, so my Warp Talons are back for round 2! This time all 5 are up for painting.
Heavy choice - 5 CSM Havocs.
Also back for round 2 is the black legion havocs. Mostly because I didn't have any other options and I really just like them
So yeah that's the poll for my.......9th PPC? I think? Whatever.
So cast your vote to pick which selection of models will get speed painted in one week. The poll will run from now till 12am this Friday (April 8th) and then the challenge begins. I will have one week to paint whatever you guys pick, so from 12am April 8th to 11:59pm April 14th.
My work week has changed Alot from last year so the time line for painting these guys has been altered a little.
None the less I'll be waiting to see what you guys make me paint this time around.
So like always, Cheer for my success while wishing for my defeat!
