Hi all and welcome to the first (annual?) tale of Gamers.

The basic premise of the tale is for you to signup and commit to painting a certain points total of your gaming system of choice. What quantity you wish to paint is down purely down to personal choice, as a wise man once said:-

Wise man wrote:
The idea is a time limit is set and you pledge what you wanna do thus challenging yourself. People work at different rates and have different time available. So the time is set and you just pledge a quantity. Thus you only let yourself down ...lots of love


The pledge is then broken down into 10 equal chunks to be completed each month over the course of a year.

For example:-

I sparkydave pledge to paint 50 points of Retribution. this would be broken down to 5 points each month over 12 months.

"Hang on - that doesn't quite add up"

Indeed. I'm fully aware that we all have lives outside of gaming, which may interfere in our abilities to complete a painting project. As a result, each entrant will have two "Get out of painting free" cards, which will be used in any month where you don't complete five points. However, if you have less than two of these cards and you paint ten points or more in a given month, then you'll earn one back.

The same would go for any double cost total over a month. thus enabling you to complete that 400 points elf prince on dragon / Necron monolith / British army spitfire? (ok I don't know anything about bolt action :)) and give It the proper time such a centrepiece would deserve.

"Ok I want to signup what do I have to do and how will this be tracked"

Not much, sign up in this thread and I will keep a record of your pledges and progress, then simply post a completed picture in each months "completed models" thread along with any points totals and any further details you feel relevant.

"but I could just cheat and post models I've painted previously"

Yes you could but the idea of the pledge is to keep momentum and help motivate each other so that at the end of the year you are able to play your game of choice with a full painted army to be proud of.

"So what do I get if I achieve my goal"

Its self rewarding in that you get a fully painted force you will enjoy putting on the table.

"when does it start"

Well, the beginning of next month is 10 days away, that seems like a reasonable start.

So sign up. join in, and I will iron out the kinks as I go (this is the first time I've done anything like this)

Signups:
Sparky - 2000 points - darkelves - WFB

I will get the ball rolling, I've never managed a completed warhammer fantasy army, my aim will be to build and paint a 2000 point force of either orcs or dark elves (TBC) over the coming months.

(remember you sign up to how much you want, I paint reasonable quality fast and feel that 2000 points while steep is definatley doable)
