Some good progress from the club this month. Paul has some historical elephants pulling double duty as monstrous beasties…griffons are historical right? They’re in the tapestries and murals so they must be!

I continued working on my Stormcast

2018 Guildford Games Club Painting Challenge: June!

Half way through the year and there’s some development’s afoot!

As ever the mutable way of the world do not leave our pledges untouched. Ash March has crafted anew his pledge for the year and a new challenger approaches! A being known only as Biel Tan has a pledge all their own.

For this month Tim Smith has completed one portion of his pledge with some fantastic looking scenery

Paul’s Romans Auxilia grow faster than the empire itself and the forces of Napoleon lurk ominously in the background

I managed to get forces for two games completed – 6mm Israelis for Fate of a Nation and 28mm British Indians for Chain of Command. As well as finalising my colour scheme for a new Stormcast army for Age of Sigmar.

2018 Guildford Games Club Painting Challenge: The Pledges!

For 2018 the members of the Guildford Games Club will be setting themselves miniature painting challenges and throughout the year we will be tracking that progress, posting up images of work people are proud of and generally celebrating the painting and modelling side of the hobby.

The rules are very loose, people can set themselves whatever painting challenges they want – be they miniatures, terrain, conversions, new painting techniques, etc. – and they can decide when they have achieved them or whatever milestones they want to set.

Furthermore it’s not a competition, not to find who can paint the most or paint the best or convert the fanciest. The aim is to encourage people to paint more and to celebrate the painting that they do!
