Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: April!

And we’re back again with some hobby updates for April! Let’s see what people have been getting up to.

First up Adam continues his Genestealer Cult project, transforming some of those primed models from previous months into gorgeous, colourful, object source lit weapons of war! With all those yellows and blues is he some kind of secret Carolean?

Not to be outdone James brings the thunder! A veritable legion of Imperial armoured might to smash aside any foolish enough to argue the Emperor’s right to rule. Some ace painting too, jealous of that rusted, grubby white!

I painted a fairly eclectic mix of things. Some 10mm models to complete my Warmaster army for a tournament, continued building up my Invicible Army and a few Somua for Flames of War early war. Plus a few renegade space marines.

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.

Imperial Guard army (4000pts ish left to do)

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!
