TtC WINTER-WARMER Challenge!

Well folks, here we are with the Winter season upon us. Another great year of wargaming, PAINT & CHATS, and painting projects.

As the year comes to a close, we are introducing our TtC community painting/project challenge: "Winter-Warmer!". Yup, the "Winter-Warmer" will hopefully become a regular community event in the coming years. A great way to finish off past projects! Of course, with all the other challenges being put forth this time of year by other communities, why not join in and have our very own community-based challenge as well?!

Starting OCTOBER 1 and running through December 31, 2016!

So, what is it all about then, and how do you take part? Easy! The event will start October 1, running through December 31 of this year. Short notice? Perhaps. Here is what you need to know in order to take part.

  • Come up with a project(s) that will carry you through the next three months. Be practical here. A good start are past projects you would like to get done by year's end.
  • Projects can be terrain, painting miniatures, or a mix of the two.
  • Projects can be for ANY period or genre of miniatures wargaming: Napoleonics, Sudan, 40k, D&D terrain/miniatures, etc., etc.
  • Once you have a project in mind, tell the community about it. You can do this on the G+ TtC community, or the FaceBook TtC forum. Just make your post stating what you want to get done.
  • The community WILL BE WATCHING! Be sure to post regular updates in the G+ and/or FB communities showing your progress so far. Include pics! :)
  • Be sure to check everyone's projects as well and leave some feedback!
  • Take advantage of the PAINT & CHATS held within the community to follow along everyones progress, as well as to JOIN IN and get stuff done with us. It's all great fun :)

That's about it really. There are no prizes except getting your projects done and on the table! What better reward is that?!

Everyone is welcome to take part in the challenge. Just be sure to let everyone know you ARE taking part. Stick with it too! :()

So that's about it. Are you guys ready? I know I am. I have a NEW project planned actually and will be using this challenge to get it done. Oh boy! This will be good.

Any comments, or feedback is welcome. Good luck everyone... and see you all in the PAINT & CHATS! :)

  3. Sounds great, Kurtus. I'm going to be ploughing through my 20mm Napoleonics figures for the forseeable future, so rather than painting any other minis I think I'll do something terrain-based for the winter warmer. Not entirely sure what yet, but looking forward to it :-)

  5. Hi mate, looking at a complete British Armoured Division plus supports including air and two Polish Divisions (possibly three!) plus supports. Also got a load of terrain to work on including a large 10' to 12' long canal to represent the Kiel Canal. So I think I will probably add the canal as a terrain piece. 28mm Pulp will mainly be terrain as I am planning to build a museum/library gaming board for a game next April. 20mm Back of Beyond also for April is a 1920's sort of Weird WWI force involving Balloon Cavalry. I need a bit more planning on this one. Hope to be back to normal soon so I can get back to the paint and chats. Due to have an operation on my leg which hopefully will stop the blood infections as they think it is a problem with my Lymph Drain in my left leg.
    Cheers

  6. Should have said the Modern 6mm is at platoon scale, so roughly 1:4 to 1:6 scale.
