Doc here with another dose of were I'm at.... So a couple of the guys and me went to forgeworld open day and I spent a decent wod of cash as you do! However before I went after discussions with the boss (wife) I voluntarily decided to introduce a system of painting points. Now I'm not the only one doing this Dale over on Realm of 40K has also introduced a similar system. Have a read of Dales post here. So why painting points? In reality the reason is my backlog of mini's to paint is huge and to be frank I would concede I have bought more than what I have painted in the last two years.
So Dale has his system and at first I thought I would copy it, but then me being me kind of wanted a simpler system. Easy to follow. Firstly as Forgeworld open day was at the end of March the intention is to run for a financial year.
Simply my points will be as follows:
1pt = £1
1pt = 25mm round base model or 20mm square base
2pts = 40mm round base or 25mm sqaure base
5pts = 60mm base, Chariot Warhammer Base or Character Model
10pts = Tanks, Mosters or Larger
I will be putting a painting points tally in the sidebar on the blog. So I started this 40 odd days ago and how many points am I on at this very moment 1! Yes 1 I have actually only fully completed 1 model and thats a test model for my deadzone enforcers! Best pull my finger out.
Well that's it folks I'm off to get me some damm points if I ever hope to buy 7th edition 40k!
