Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: November!

Delayed getting this written up so apologies! But let’s see what the industrious hobbyists at the GGC have been up to…

Adam has some new converted Scouts using the Necromunda Enforcer models as a base plus look at that detailing on the bike consoles!

Paul is still building his monster menagerie like some kind of mad zoo keeper…now to wait for his players to actually roll them up on the random encounter tables.

I had a disjointed month, moved house, etc. so only painted 3 models proper. I did do some work to make an MDF army playable though.

The Pledges!

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!

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.

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!

Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: August!

With his Genestealer Cult tournament ready Adam could have taken his foot off the pedal. But nothing will hold him back from defending the Imperium of man! Some eminently rational space marines: Raptors!

Not to be outdone Paul’s legions of halflings gather apace, backed up by some giant armoured halflings from Italy and never before have I seen such appealing twigs. Just look at those goats!

I finished off the last bits of my LotR Elves with Gil-Galad, Haldir and Elrond, plus Gandalf ‘cos everyone needs a Gandalf. Then dove into my WW2 French for Flames of War. Plus some little airplanes for Epic.

These guys are Raptors. A successor of the ravenguard and commonly known as sensible marine. These guys style of play have seen a massive boost with the new vanguard units and need a little love. I have just been painting the stuff I already have, left overs from dark imperium and shadowspear. Here are some pictures of the entire force to date, some where painted over a year ago though.

Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: July!

July is checking in with some fantastic work from the Guildford Games Club. Adam is here to dazzle us with object source lighting and some cheeky conversions from Kal Jherico and a Kasrkin to make more mutant pistolero

Paul’s halfling horde grows ever mightier with some trolls, ogre bodyguards, a financier and a goat mounted knightly prince. Not to be outdone by those hobbitses the Rohirrim rally to their banners

I painted some more elves for Lord of the Rings. Wood elves and some of the many (many many) elven heroes. Plus I added some bright orange and red remotes to my Infinity forces, who needs stealth when you’re the Invicincible Army

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.

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!

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.

Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: April!

And we’re back again with some hobby updates for April! Let’s see what people have been getting up to.

First up Adam continues his Genestealer Cult project, transforming some of those primed models from previous months into gorgeous, colourful, object source lit weapons of war! With all those yellows and blues is he some kind of secret Carolean?

Not to be outdone James brings the thunder! A veritable legion of Imperial armoured might to smash aside any foolish enough to argue the Emperor’s right to rule. Some ace painting too, jealous of that rusted, grubby white!

I painted a fairly eclectic mix of things. Some 10mm models to complete my Warmaster army for a tournament, continued building up my Invicible Army and a few Somua for Flames of War early war. Plus a few renegade space marines.

2019 Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: March!

Lots of busy people hobbying this month! Let’s see what they’ve been up to…

First up Paul has used his willpower to resist the calling of halflings to instead bring us Rohirrim for LotR, some of the characterful Anyaral World of Twilight models and a converted Ogre

Adam Stallwood’s Genestealer Cult grows apace as he shows us both his skills with a brush and his discipline to tackle such a challenge!

I have rather less focus and painted an assortment of bits and pieces. Completing two projects though. AoS Orcs (only took a year…) and AoS Endless Spells. As well as adding another few models to my Invincible Army for Infinity and starting some FoW Frenchmen.

Game on!Rohan, Anyaral Noble knights, noble, and pack beast, and another beautiful Ogre I’m probably ruining with knife and putty! (And tin can…..)
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
1 Zuyong and 1 Daoying for Infinity, 6 orcs to finish my AoS army, the AoS Endless Spells, 6 AMD173 and a WW2 French infantry stand for FoW . Campaign: 96/200. Second round of Infinity Campaign completedI 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 filed 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
In terms of painting, I wanted to push myself this year and have decided to do these as my standard paint job – something to work up from. I tend to do a couple of simple base colours, a good helping of my trusty Army Painter strong tone, neaten, little highlight and then call it a day.
Adam StallwoodI’d like to pledge a genestealer cult army for 40k. 2000pts (ish) worthAnother group of neophytes, squad leaders and special weapons and a couple of shots of the full squads, 2 x 10 neophytes and 15 acolytes.

Also did 6 deathwatch terminators, to try out with the new bolter rules.

The GSC really are starting to come together as an army. Only 7 weeks to go and 55 models

2019 Guildford Games Club Hobby Challenge: February!

And February checking in, plenty of hobbying completed this month.

Mark Collins has his pen out, pages flyin’ books on their way!

Adam Stallwood has built a huge supply of models and, despite that, also managed to paint some stunning models AND build a display board! If only I could be as industrious as Comrade Stallwood!

Paul’s halflings surge ahead, completely blowing past his monthly objective to complete 6 new elements of the army! Plus they look incredible!

I got a few Inifnity models done for the campaign and finished my current LotR elf collection.

James has been active in hobbyland too, basecoating, building, painting and even doing some Necromunda rules writing. Look at that vibrant green on the Van Saar!

Wes has powered on with his Haqqislam forces, getting them all beautiful and battle ready.

The Pledges

Name Pledge Progress Comments
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 Parish I 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 Dix To complete my:
Imperial Guard army (4000pts ish left to do)
Prussian army
Necromunda House Gangs

Paul Townsend I 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! Halfmen have formed the core of my focus this month. A couple of unexpected days off work have given me more brush time than usual. Target of two gaming elements for the month smashed with 6 completed, and progress on a number of other projects including conversions like an ogre…..
