2018 Guildford Games Club Painting Challenge: February!

Another month, another chunk of progress!

Let’s see what people have gotten up to…

Paul has achieved one of his objectives and updated Hobby Brush, his website, with new Anyaral: World of Twilight models! Go and check it out here!

He also got himself a whole load of Romans for various uses completed

I was fairly eclectic this month, doing scenery, 3mm sci fi, Superheroes and AoS Orcs

David Last Completely paint and base 200 models by Dec 31st 2018, learn how to paint glowing energy ‘power sword’ effects 27 models completed this month, 94/200 for the year

The 3mm count for 11 equivalents, Supergirl and the Flash for two more, 5 Orc ‘Ardboyz, a Warchanter, a Wierdboy, four Icons/objective markers for Bushido and three pieces of terrain for Bushido

I will count 28-32mm figures as one model, 5x6mm figures as one model, larger monstrous/warmachine/etc. figures may count as more than one model
Tim Smith craft a 6×4 tables worth of terrain; summer grassland and rocky outcrops. Also want to fully paint a small Eldar/Ynnari army, magnetising the larger models and/or customising the army in some way 0 completed
Paul Townsend complete one element (troop, character, warmachine or monster) for kings of war _or_ three bases of 6mm napoleonics each month to a gaming standard

I pledge to update http://Hobbybrush.com at least once a month, to encourage my own hobby and further promote that of the club

These guys still need basing and some work done on their shields, but as troops they will represent four elements for kings of war & I’m quite happily on target if I get them finished off next month.

Todays updates come in the form of housekeeping in my favoured Anyaral: World of Twilight section.

Two new sections:
Casanii:

Empire Nobles:
http://hobbybrush.com/fantasy/twighlight/nobles/

also added a lot of pictures to other galleries in the Twilight Section, so if you like such things, look around!

Alex Foyster -Pick up a brush and paint once per week.

-Finish one ‘thing’ per month

I have managed to assemble and base my Delaques. The only paint invloved was some liquid greenstuff on the heavy but still…
Ash March I’ll pledge to have this orc mega force finished along with a necromunda gang and my bushido minis all by my birthday at the end of may (!) by the end of the year I’ll have my epic armies all painted and my 6mm napoleonics along with the high elves.. No update

Happy painting!

2018 Guildford Games Club Painting Challenge: January!

With January coming to a close we have some industrious club members turning out some fantastic work and working on their pledges

Tim shows off his conversion skills and ability to speed paint like a boss with an Ynnari Eldar army coming on strong

Alex worked on cleaning and prepping his Delaque gang, ready for painting

All the while Paul finishes all manner of bits and pieces to keep himself occupied for the month

Finally some industrious small scale action getting almost 400 6mm napolenics finished, followed by some 3mm stuff to experiment with

shields have finally been finished and they’re based at last – so progress on models which have been on the go since last April!!

Update to the Hobbybrush is in the works but I broke it rather than updating it when trying to change the gallery format….. but I found time to try – that counts, right?

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!
