Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: September!

Another month another set of industrious painters at the GGC!

Adam finishes up some more models for his Genestealer Cult and adds to his new Space Marine project. Fantastic work with the OSL as always.

Paul has taken on a challenge for a big for Kings of War. That doesn’t stop him painting up some objectives for Frostgrave!

James Dix’s Imperial Guard force grows apace with a huge amount of work being put into it. Those cavalry are especially good but I really want to know how he does that dirty white on the tanks…

And I finished some dwarves for Lord of the Rings, a single Custodian Guard and Tom Bombadil with a custom base to mark his zone of control.

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!I certainly didn’t make my target this month, as I didn’t technically finish a single playable element….. but…..Tokens for Frostgrave “ulterior motives” all made and painted, and three elements of a halfling baggage train kit bashed together for no good reason or excuse other than I can!

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) worthA bit slow on painting front this month, I’ve had a couple of tournaments over weekends and a weekend away to earn brownie points to have two weekends away. I’ve managed to complete 5 infiltrators for my raptors, assemble and base coat a ‘slaplin’ for my Revilers. On the GSC side I’ve done an abominate who’s been sitting on the shelf for ages and start to upgrade my neophytes to have mining lasers and Webber, which is the current meta for dealing with eldar flyer spam. Need eight of each. It never ends!
