2019 Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: The Pledges!

New year and new challengers appear! This year the format is being shaken up a bit to include a more diverse array of hobby pursuits so it’s not only the painting challenge anymore.

Our intrepid entrees have a bewildering and diverse array of pledges that they will try and complete throughout this year, all detailed below. Let’s see what’s exciting everyone…

The Pledges

Name Pledge Progress Comments
Tom James Lavers Bevell 1. Finish painting my Dark angels (there currently are at least 200 unpainted models, 80 of which are tactical marines)
2. Actually win a game with them!
Sam Parish I have four cases of unfinished models. Some need some hobby work done, others just need painting. What I’d like to do, is have the club pick one of my boxes at random on a poll on the Games club page, and that’s the first box I work on.
James Dix To complete my:
Imperial Guard army (4000pts ish left to do)
Prussian army
Necromunda House Gangs
Alex Ede Fully complete my heresy blood angels and sanguinius (if when he drops) roughly 1500pts left to go and place well with them in the heresy events

And make a proper start and finish my ironjawz to 2500pts and then take them to an event at WHw

Paul Townsend One is definitely to play a reasonable game with a fully painted purely halfling army
David Last 1. Fully paint and base 200 models

2. Finish the small projects: Blood Bowl Team, Necromunda Gang, Superhero Team

I will count 28-32mm figures as one model, 5x6mm figures as one model, larger monstrous/warmachine/etc. figures may count as more than one model
Ross Packman I’d like to get a Necromunda board finished, including multi-level terrain.
Mark Collins I hope to rewrite and finish a third novel, World Without Bounds, for Easter and then write a fourth entirely new novel from scratch in the same series by Christmas.
