Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: May!

May is done and there’s been some very industrious work done this month. Let’s have a look!

Adam has built a display board to go with his Genestealer Cult, showing us where they are truly from. It looks fantastic!

Paul comes back swinging with two entire units and three characters. One and all little masterpieces. Just look at that half a Gandalf!

I had a productive month, getting models done for several games. Sigmarines and Space Marines, French Recon troops and a mix of criminals and law enforcement.

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!After nothing at all to report last month, I made good progress this month even if it was polishing off projects already under way for some time! Regiment of halfling spears from westfalia. Converted regiment of “Honour guard” (halflings on GW Gryphon hounds), a halfling wizard from Hasslefree, an Ogre for frostgrave and finishing touches completed on Friar Tuck from Warlord Games! I also had my first true game with a fully painted pure halfling army so that target was met this month too!
