Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: August!

With his Genestealer Cult tournament ready Adam could have taken his foot off the pedal. But nothing will hold him back from defending the Imperium of man! Some eminently rational space marines: Raptors!

Not to be outdone Paul’s legions of halflings gather apace, backed up by some giant armoured halflings from Italy and never before have I seen such appealing twigs. Just look at those goats!

I finished off the last bits of my LotR Elves with Gil-Galad, Haldir and Elrond, plus Gandalf ‘cos everyone needs a Gandalf. Then dove into my WW2 French for Flames of War. Plus some little airplanes for Epic.

The Pledges!

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 ParishI 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.

Paul TownsendI aim to complete the equivalent of two elements (character, “troop” sized unit or war machine) for kings of war each month. Included in this at least 3 giants, complete my Frostgrave warband, napoleonic french, and get the Halfmen to a good playable size army. Game on!Did somebody say mega-battle?? Spurred on by thoughts of actually setting up the massive KoW game, the brushes have flown this month. Half an hour after work each day has been the aim, plus I had one day off which I spent painting the Romans.
End result : – set of Gabion defences suitable for 28mm Two regiments of Roman Praetorians. Two regiments of half-bill-men (spearlings ). And a troop of goat cavalry to top it off.

Adam StallwoodI’d like to pledge a genestealer cult army for 40k. 2000pts (ish) worthAfter the completion of my tournament list for GSC I have been swept up with new marine hype and have decided to paint more to my Primaris force. These guys are Raptors. A successor of the ravenguard and commonly known as sensible marine. These guys style of play have seen a massive boost with the new vanguard units and need a little love. I have just been painting the stuff I already have, left overs from dark imperium and shadowspear. Here are some pictures of the entire force to date, some where painted over a year ago though.
