1 Can I have your help? on Wed Dec 31, 2014 9:51 pm

Now you may or may not have read my blog yet, but I'm working on removing my backlog of unpainted models by finishing off an ongoing project each month.

What I'd like to do is to arrange a game or games of the said project at the end of the month (or beginning of the next month) to use the newly painted minatures in. That's where you lot come in.

It won't have to be our regular gathering (although it could be), I'm happy to make other arrangements, but basically I want something to help motivate me.

So, for example, in January I'm either going to focus on Bolt Action or my Batman terrain (I've not decided yet), and so I'd like to arrange a game of one of them for the end of January, beginning of February.

The games might get more obscure as I progress through the year.

Does that sound reasonable?

What's in it for you? Well, you get to repeatedly beat my newly painted toys and make me cry. Smile

How is this different from any other games?!

So you mean have them arranged weeks in advance, so you know what you're painting for? Not a bad idea. I've just ordered 500 points of French guys...

Could plan a small game for the start of feb?

It's basically arranging something a month in advance, rather than on a whim a week before. It also means agreeing to play stuff you might not have heard of.

Finally, some of the games are likely to be two player and mean arranging extra games.

How about a four player, 500 point thing like we did in the early days of Bolt Action?

It would be nice if you could do some vehicles for me to aim my mine dogs at.

Right, Bolt Action it is for January.

Not really. I'm not doing a second one yet. I'm just finishing of my Russians.

It is that. And the chances of it being painted before the end of January are slim!

You do realise that each time you lose with them, you're going to get a barrage of cheese eating surrender monkey jokes?

Yes. But every time I win with them, I'm the best general ever.

Of course...just like you are with the Partisans...

On a separate note, Pete, I've checked and it is an HMG you've given me. It Just had the wrong label on.

Guess I'm buying Ostfront at Vapnartak? Smile

I'm keeping miniature purchases to a minimum while I try to clear the lead pile.

Matt, one of the things I'm getting sorted this month is a red flag for my soviets. While I'm at it, do you want me to sort a white one for your french?

This big talk is going to make you look pretty silly when you're being beaten by the French.

At least if I lose to the French I'll have lost the game to another player. Not some cheaty no skill bombs.
