Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: October!

Let’s see what the GGC has been up to this month!

Adam has been diverse in his projects. Painting space marines, placing in a Warhammer Fantasy 6th Edition tournament and getting his terrain on!

Paul had a similarly eclectic month, painting varied Reaper figures for Frostgrave. And a train.

I painted some random bits andpieces, trying to finish off my paint queue for the year. I also went to the Epic World Tournament in France and finished in 3rd! Hurray!

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!this month has really been focused on starting to fill out my frostgrave / generic dungeon crawler beastiary. All speed paints but effective enough for npcs , including a variety from white apes and snow trolls, through zombies and skeletons, down to kobolds and sewer slimes. No actual kings of war elements complete, but 39 pieces of various sizes. Happy days. Now to see them kill some wizards!!
