Just wondering, how many of you would like a Tyranid sub forum event, and what type of event?  Thank you for your thoughts.

How about a converting event, where you take any of our creatures, make a character version of it with homebrew rules, and the most liked wins?


Well would you look at the time, it's zombie o'clock!

I'd be up for a tale of gamers slow grow challenge, say building and painting 1-2 units per month.

At the moment I'm not interested in competitively cranking out as many poorly painted models as possible (ETL style).

I was thinking of running a event with this structure thoughts? 

 

Month 1: 1 unit of choice

Month 2: 1 unit of choice plus 1 HQ

Month 3: 1 unit of choice

Month 4: 1 unit of choice plus 1 other unit

Month 5: 1 unit of choice

Month 6: 1 unit of choice

 

So we have awards like best converted, best painted, best overall, best story.

Those are a bit too vague for me - it would be nice to work through the force org chart, perhaps?

 

Month 1: 1 TROOPS unit of choice

Month 2: 1 HQ unit of choice plus one TROOP unit

Month 3: 1 ELITE unit of choice 

Month 4: 1 HEAVY SUPPORT unit of choice plus 1 other unit

Month 5: 1 FAST ATTACK unit of choice

Month 6: 1 TROOP plus 1 other unit of choice

 

This will give people a usable army after 2 months (smallest force org), and enough for the larger force org chart after 6 months.

This sounds good. This could help motivate me towards getting my swarm painted. Where do I sign up?

I would like to give people freedom of choice.  If you want to do those units, then you can but I know some who only want to paint troops.

We would be glad to have you.  Mods and I are going over the detail.  I will be announcing when it's ready.

So basically it's that I said in the third post, paint a minimum 1 unit per month, or as many as you like.

A single, central thread to keep track of everyone, people must pledge the unit at the start of the month, post painted pics by the end of the month. If you fail to post the painted unit, you have to post 2 painted units next month to not demoralise people or kick them out for failing. Largest pledged army after 6months is crowned champion.

Sounds ace.


Note: Everything I say is my own personal opinion as hobbyist, a novelist, and the world's slowest painter. It's not intended to reflect back on Games Workshop in any professional context.

Quick update:  We are finalizing everything at the moment.  The plan is to have the September as prep/announcement month, and we start in October.   Hope to see everyone there.

Awesome. I just bought some more stuff, looking forward to getting some paint on it and seeing others armies grow.
