++ The Hall of Victors ++
Welcome to The 30K Casual Hobby Challenge - Hall of Victors.
This thread is a place to celebrate the work and success of the participants in the 30K Casual Hobby challenge. Here we will post monthly summaries of the challenge, and invite the most productive and respected members of each monthly challenge to post pictures of their work. We’ll also have a look at everybody’s army progress every so often.
Firstly I’ll remind everyone of the rules of the challenge:
To join in you make a hobby pledge for the month, in the relevant month’s thread, and this contributes to either the Loyalist or Traitor cause. There are two competitions:
Loyalists and Traitors compete on completed pledges over the month. The more completed pledges the more points you win. You can make a second pledge only once the first is complete, and in doing so you risk your first pledge. That's right - pledges are all or nothing - complete your vows or live in shame.
Every model you pledge to paint is worth points. Once you finish the model and show us you earn points for your faction. These are always safe, so there is always an incentive to keep painting! The scores are as follows -
Infantry - 1 point;
Large Infantry (terminators, bikes, rapiers without crew etc.) - 2 points;
Monstrous infantry - 3 points;
Vehicles and Fortifications - 6 points;
Lord of War (including Primarchs)- 10 points;
Warhound Titan – 15 points;
Reaver Titan – 20 points.
Building – Building pledges are worth one quarter points. If you upgrade a building pledge to a painting pledge that month, you can only earn the full painting points for the models.
Swapping pledges – I will accept pledge swaps, as long as they are worth at least the same points. If you have Forge World delivery issues, just let me know and pledges can also be tweaked.
Each month absolute scores are recorded, and the percentage of pledged scores completed.
At the end of the month I'll tally up the points and pledges to see who wins. Fraters are ranked in the following classes:
Oathkeeper – Completed all of their pledged models.
Battle Brother – Completed some of their pledge and contributed to the cause.
Neophyte – Managed some hobby work, but scored no points for their team.
The Missing – A shameful lack of progress!
The oathkeeper with the highest number of points scored for each team will be declared the Emperor’s or Warmaster’s champion, and asked to post pictures of their vow here. Any persistent winners may nominate their favourite vow in their stead, if they are bored of showing off!
At the end of each month all involved members (Neophytes and up) will also vote for their favourite pledges on each team. The two most popular vows will be declared the Warrior’s champions, and post their work here.
Finally – I’d like to use this thread as a place for people to show off their total army progress. So whenever you have a decent army picture, it would be great for people involved in the challenge to post images of all the challenge models they’ve completed in the preceding months, or one of their army as a whole.
So the idea of all of this is to provide a record of our antics, and to provide more inspiration and motivation for our fellow 30K hobbyists in a place that all can see! Right now I’d like to see pictures of the armies and total pledge progress of everyone involved in the challenge so far. I’d also like to invite our previous victors to post some images of their victorious vows. Details of these, along with links to our old threads are below.
