double edged sword when your woman says you should do something you enjoy, could backfire. ha ha.

So...I am sort of on the fence about it, and have yet to decide which army I would do if I go for it. But I look forward to following along as people W.I.P.


If you're willing to consider non-GW models, have a look at Gripping Beast's and Wargames Factory's Anglo-Saxon and Viking ranges. They both do good quality but cheap plastic kits and Gripping Beast has some good metals at a great price (4 for £5 is typical). The casting quality obviously isn't as good as GW's (or rather, as good as GW's metals) but you get what you pay for and I'm absolutely happy with the metals I have.

Large infantry based forces for Rohan and Dunland would be very easy and cheap to make using the plastic kits, and you could even do a Rohan cavalry force if you're happy to get lots of metals (and in comparison to GW's metals/Finecast it wouldn't cost an arm and a leg).

Decided to sit the first one out. I just won't be done my small amount of Mordor I have left in time to start an army for this. But since this ends in June and I have vacation in July..well it would be a perfect time to jump on the next one and I will be into different armies at that time. But I have set a goal to see if I can finish 30 models by June just to see if it is workable in my schedule (painted at my normal standard). Have fun guys.

There's an easy fix Sithious. Lower your standards and ignore the family. :-)

Just a quick reminder that this month doesn't finish until 5th February, so there's still some time to paint/take pictures.
Month 2 starts today (1st Feb) and ends 29th Feb. (little overlap due to late start)

March has started, and will finish on the 31st. February has ended, apart from or Hixont and Elentir, who I've spoken to via PM, and if anyone would still like to join there is time

Just thought I'd say a big well done to everyone so far, and keep up the good work. It's the final month, and I look forwards to seeing your finished armies.
