Ahoy, dear Frater!
A few of us in the Loyalist ETL thread discussed very briefly how it feels a little emptier now that the ETL has finished for another year. I remembered this thing we used to do three or four years ago, where every month a bunch of us would decide to do some specific hobby each month and help to motivate each other to get that thing done.
Basically, you pledge or sign up to complete a certain hobby task before the end of the month, be it building, converting, painting, completing or any combination of the above. In the same vein as the ETL, you would post initial or in-progress pics, and then a completed one at the end of the month showing that you've fulfilled your goal.
Hopefully there's some motivation to do this in order to keep our momentum going after ETL, especially given our deservedly high results. I'm planning on building up my next army, Iron Hands, over the next several months in order to prep it for next year's ETL. There's also usually Loyalty and Treachery starting sometime in January, so if there's enough interest we can run this alongside those.
Once it's been established who and how many are keen to have a crack at this, we can look at things like tracking progress month to month, maybe doing a Loyalists vs. Traitors thing, or even an inter-legion contest depending on how many are participating.
In terms of an actual pledge, it doesn't need to be any more complex than this -
I, StruManChu, pledge to build and convert 15 Medusan Immortals for my Iron Hands by month's end. Failure to do so will result in gentle mockery from my more successful fellow participants.
Anyone else, feel free to sign up if you're keen. Any questions, hit me up!
