Tale of 4 Gamers
For the next five months the blog will be hosting all of the hobby activity from our Tale of 4 Gamers event.
Although somewhat inaccurate (there are eight people taking part) a Tale of Four Gamers has been made eponymous by White Dwarf through the years and gives people a good first impression of what we are going to try to achieve (and mostly likely fail) over the next few months.
Most of us have been heavily involved with Horus Heresy armies and some Age of Sigmar over the last year and a couple have just returned to the hobby since the launch of 8th edition so we thought this would be a good way of getting everyone up to speed and provide a support network to get some projects completed.
The group is made up of a variety of players, some being very competitive tournament standard players that have competed across the world at events to people who prefer the painting and modelling side of things. As a result it should give a nice spread of content for you all no matter your preference.
Here is an outline of our goals and then over the next few days we will be posting player profiles of all of our players and some of their plans ahead.
Monthly Hobby plan:
We will have monthly checkpoints on our progress with the aim of hitting these and finishing our army in the allotted time. This will be easier for some depending on work commitments and army choice but all should be roughly achievable.
Stage 1 Oct 29th : Complete 25 power of your chosen army
Stage 2 Nov 26th: Complete 50 power of your chosen army
Satge 3 Dec 31st: Complete 1500 Points of your chosen army
Stage 4 Jan 28th: Complete 2000 points of your chosen army
Feb – Warhammer World event?
We went with power as a starting point as that allows us to quickly get some armies going and not worry about balancing smaller lists. Switching to points later allows us to plan a bit more once we see how our armies perform. Depending on how we progress I am hoping to arrange a large game at Warhammer World to round things off an give people a chance to see the armies in person. This will depend on availability so it’s pencilled in for February (baring in mind I haven’t told any other participants this yet…)
Monthly Gaming plan
I am in progress of putting together a simple campaign to accompany our hobby progress. This will add some reward for people who complete hobby tasks and use the open play format from 8th edition. I’ll do another more in depth post on this in the next few days once everything is finalised.
