    Hello guys

    Got a question for you.
    Is there any event like the WHite Dwarf article : "A Tale of Four Warlords " planned on this forum ?
    (in french we call in CDA "choix des armes, and right now i'm not sure of the title)

    It consist on a small army painting/building in a small amount of time.
    Like 1000pts in 3 month.
    The first tier have to be playable (one chief and 2 units for exemple)

    Nothing like that at this time, but that's not to say someone couldn't set it up.just takes a bit of organization and direction.

    We should simply record who want to participate, mostly new commers or guys with a theme for their host.
    Starting slow is the best, with a amount of time reasonable.
    I've done 1500pts in 3 month by the past and it's quite laborious, not difficult but you have to put time in it to finish.

    The objective is to finish simething together and share it.
    Tons of players, mostly the new one, start the game with fresh ideas but lose motivation.

    I'm the kind of gamer that prefer a full painted army than a grey unbuild minis on the table... with dust on them.

    So to start this, 4 guys (me included) could be awesome.

    Sounds like quite the challenge, and quite awesome. Not sure I will be able to compete as I have a busy couple of months, Though if we are doing 1500 in 3 months I might be able to squeak in at the last second. Gives me an excuse to buy another starter box anyway!

    We should start at 1000pts. It's easier.

    I´m in for this if it starts soon. I´m currently painting my AoP units and would like to expand the army after that, so from 15th oct I´m up for it!
    Good excuse to get models done fast :D:D.
    Already 2 warlords :writing::writing:

    I think we could start now with all motivated guys with any project ?
    I guess 1000pts is enough ?

    The only things to do should be :
    Post your painting schedule and your advencement. By the end of the month it should be completed.

    No ?

    Oh sorry didn´t mean to write that, my unconsciousness I guess :(:p. What I meant to say is that we have to decide what to do for each month, as I think what the WD guys have done´s too much: one start collecting (1st month) , on elite unit (2nd month) and one monster (3rd month). That´s what´s been for now.

    All right it´s fine with me, just some questions:
    I don´t know if AoS points are approximately the same value as what they used to be in fantasy. And I sadly can´t access AoS´ points system, I can only look up the old one.
    Just for orientation, in WHF:
    Skinks - 5pts
    Saurus - 11pts
    cold ones - 30pts
    temple guard - 14pts
    And I don´t know if in the points count special equipment should be included.

    And last I don´t know for sure if I´ll be able to paint as much as @Iblitz :joyful::joyful:

    It's not a race !
    And yeah prices have changed a lot, but not that much.
    You can find them on the online non-official list editor. (not sure if we are allowed to share this here).

    A skinks is around 8 points (taken by 10). Saurus is 10pts, Temple gard are around 20pts, cold one... idk etc...
    No more option to play with +1 -1 unit members or chiefs options.
    You take a scroll with all inside. More easier to make a list. at last synergie save the gameplay.
