I may have mentioned in past posts that I host a weekly online Hobby Hangout. So during our conversations of Company of Iron, Derek (of Throne of Angels video-log fame) proposed that we launch a classic "Tale of X Gamers" challenge.

A paint-job started probably 5 or 6 years ago and finally finished.
For those who aren't familiar with the concept, Games Workshop popularized this escalation-league-style progress report in White Dwarf. The idea is to track a group of gamers (traditionally the number is 4) over the course of a few months, as they paint a force to play in a game at the end of the challenge. There can be interim games along the way, if the rules for the game accommodate smaller skirmishes.
So far, we have Derek, and we also have Chris from the Quixotic Gamer blog. Chris is local to me here in Huntsville, so I'm hoping that we fit in some painting parties along the way and maybe even some practice runs of the rules. We start the challenge at the start of the new year (a great New Years resolution!), and we'll produce one unit or solo each month for 3 months, to culminate into meeting up at Adepticon to play the game!

Unfortunately, I was unable to convince Derek and Chris to let me count the unit-and-a-half that I already started, the bastages....
