Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: December!

The final Hobby Challenge entry for 2019! Let’s have a look at what the intrepid challengees got up to in December…

Paul got the gnoll bug and painted some for Frostgrave, then realised he needed to paint some Giants. As is a common realisation amongst most people. All of this got derailed however by wielding the world bending powers of a God to forge a field of battle

Adam continued the trend of forging worlds from nothing by making a Frostgrave table

I painted some Stormcast Eternals to finish my army off, finsished my test White Scars for Epic and the Green Arrow as I desperately tried to complete one of my pledges (note: I failed)

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!I can report for December as being actually completed are eight Gnolls. By way of a roundup, I include a picture of my giants Shame – nowhere near hit that target…But, while not quite the direction of the pledge- one of my napoleonic projects had progressed far more than expected
