So as usual I've set myself a goal slightly above what I've done in the past, this time 600 pts! . The scoring is as follow for the 28mm painters :
28mm foot figure = 5 pts
28mm mounted figure, artillery piece or crew served weapon = 10 pts
28mm vehicle = 15 pts
I've been working hard on Oldhammer recently, so its only fitting I use the challenge to work on my Chaos army, and hopefully almost complete the first phase.
- 15 "chosen"/Khorne warriors : 75 pts
- 10 "chosen"/Nurgle warriors : 50 pts
- 1 Beast of Nurgle (a special model) : approx. 10 or 15 pts (Curt will decide how much he's worth)
- 15 Plaguebearers : 75 pts
- 10 Chaos Knights : 100 pts
So all in all between my historical goal (280) and my fantasy goal (315) I'm short 5 pts but I have a few individual figures and surprises in mind to fill that gap. Of course, I reserve the right to change my plans without any notice! This is merely a tentative plan to help me focus.
Also, as Curt did last year, every two weeks there is a theme bonus round. These are worth 50 extra pts each but I do not count them in my point planning, although they will surely help me reach my goal if I can submit enough of them:
I have an entry (sometimes more than one) in mind for all the bonus round except the cold and the hot (which I may or may not participate in depending on my progress). But those entries I will keep secret for now and they will be revealed on the appropriate dates.
- December 14: Cold
- December 28: Mount(s) & Rider(s)
- January 11: Victorian
- January 25: Myth
- February 8: Hot
- February 22: Comedic
- March 8: Anti-Hero
So the last two weeks I've done as much as I can on the prepping side, trying to be better prepared than year's past. I haven't prepped everything, but its a very good start.
