Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: June!

June has been a quiet month on the hobby front but even that doesn’t mean there’s been no progress. Paul shows us just who the master of halflings is (as though that was a topic ever in doubt) but also dazzles us with some romans and an ogre.

I was rather less productive this month but I did manage to paint a pair of Infinity figures and some cavalry for Lord of the Rings

A new challenger approaches! Adam has more Genestealer Cultists with which to bring enlightenment to all of us citizens.

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.
James DixTo complete my:
Imperial Guard army (4000pts ish left to do)
Prussian army
Necromunda House Gangs
Alex EdeFully 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 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!Monthly recruitment stands at 3 halfling war machines accompanied by their master engineer, two commanders for project: Romans, An ogre who is really destined to be part of a regiment and is mainly there for the magnetic base….. and a hint at a scenery project for the months ahead!
David Last1. Fully paint and base 200 models 2. Finish the small projects: Blood Bowl Team, Superhero Team
3. Attend 3 tournaments4. (Attempt to) run a Campaign at the club
Painted a Zhencha and a Haidao for Inifnity and 6 Rivendell knights for LotR
Infinity Campaign: 4/6

Tournaments: 3/3
I will count 28-32mm figures as one model, 5x6mm figures as one model, 3x10mm as one model, larger monstrous/warmachine/etc. figures may count as more than one model
Ross PackmanI’d like to get a Necromunda board finished, including multi-level terrain.
Mark CollinsI 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.
James Jimmy Pownall I want to be able to field 3k pts of skaven in 6th Ed fantasy fully painted.
Wes SaundersI want to work on my painting techniques and at least enter some kind of painting competition
Adam StallwoodI’d like to pledge a genestealer cult army for 40k. 2000pts (ish) worthWith another tournament coming up mid july at Element games in Stockport, and a apparently it’s a real shark tank environment, I’ve been giving my GSC a hard edge. Lots of expendable brood brother and more abberants! Going for a take on the ‘muscle beach’ style list. We’ll see how it goes! It’s chess clocks and a horde army so going to need to speed up. I’ve still got to complete another kelermorph, 5 more abberants, 10 brood brothers and 20 acolytes for the 17th july. It’s going to be tight!
