    The Gaming Inventory Painting Challenge 2014!

    This is a bit of fun, to challenge or enforce one of the major wargaming sterotypes The idea is to keep track through the year of the models you have bought, assembled and painted. The goal at the end of the year is to have painted more then you bought. i.e. an overall reduction in the massed pile of plastic!

    Check back in as you make headway - perhaps once a month and of course blogs and the like are fair game.

    Anything purchased in 2013 but that has not yet turned up yet (e.g. kick starters) still counts against you if it turns up in 2014! (So I'm going to fail this every which way )

    So my report is:

    Models bought: 112
    Terrain bought: 1
    Models assembled: 47.5
    Terrain elements assembled: 0
    Models painted: 0.5
    Terrain elements painted: 0

    Achievement Score: 21.2%
    ([Assembled + Painted]/2)/Bought

    If you want to keep a list as well, that's up to you, for example mine would be:

    Models bought {112}:

    • Kings of War {11}: Orc Hero; Elf Spearmen (10)
    • Dreadball {2}: Yndij MVP & Azure Forest Trophy;
    • Darklands {70}: Krull, Malacant, Roaring Sronax {5}, Shaaroc, Uuthull, Angrislaug, Danilo, Uhtred, Finnan, Dungal on Pony, Knutr on Horse, Agriosavra, Crom {2}, Dungal, Eadric, Knutr, Mananaan, Urien, Ciniod, Daarkan, Erebius, Gondard, Rollo, Annik, Birna, Itaina, Leofwen, Naraa, Theliatiss, Aldhelm, Domnech, Ffion, Idruaada, Myrkranio, Vithar, Zethag, Mag Ap Mag, Angedern, Bagseg, Brugg, Gaarwag, Jormungand, Scecchus, Broga, Eikrova,, Ax-Drunes {10}, Kernuor, Brutes {5}, Goad-Drunes {3}, Ungelfelic, Brunchaath;
    • Oathsworn {4}: Dwarf King on Shield, Dwarf Bodyguards {2}, Dwarf Champion;
    • Kingdom Death {8}: Pin-up Collection {8};
    • Hell Dorado {17}: Anne Haley, Twilight Knight, Traveller - Officer, Traveller - Independent, Hashishin, Retiarius, Sister Eloise, Aidan Saint-James, Arquebuser {3}, Francisco Vargas, Asaliah, Damned One of Wrath, Damned One of Sloth {2}, Harborym;

    Terrain bought {1}:

    • 40k {1}: Aegis Defence Line.


    Models assembled {47.5}:

    I like this, this is more "me" than the standard quarterly challenge. Plus I'm onto a winner as I bought an entire Sisters army on the 29th of December! Lol Quick question though, are we updating the same post to save forum space, or can we tag on the bottom each time to see the progression over the year?

    At this stage I'm going to go with "whatever floats your boat", but I reserve the right to be more specific if it becomes cluttered/unreadable/a butterfly flaps it's wings in Brazil etc

    This one doesn't involve almost premeditated breaking of promises, so I'm all in. I say all in, I mean in a bit. I've removed terrain; there's no chance.

    Models bought: 0
    Models assembled: 0.9
    Models painted: 0.7

    I wasn't sure whether to go with the amount of paint required or the amount of effort, so I've gone with somewhere in between. There's a strong chance the numbers will stay low enough for that to make a difference in the end. I've not glued his arms on yet so I couldn't really claim it as a full assembly either.

    This is going well, I'm pleased.

    I'll throw in!

    Initial Report, will attempt to report monthly!

    Models bought: 0
    Terrain bought: 0
    Models assembled: 16
    Terrain elements assembled: 0
    Models painted: 17
    Terrain elements painted: 0

    But can I suggest we split Models bought/painted/assebled to Small Sized and Large sized models?

    When you get a job you don't complete your challenge, when you don't complete your challenge you get punished.

    Damn you EB!

    Models assembled: 40ish
