New year new army. Or. A tale of X generals
#1
As christmas is nearly upon us and the go-to gift for family members with hobbyist relatives is vouchers or cold hard cash. I thought I'd touch on a thread Russel started a couple of weeks ago.

The plan so far

Start in january or march

Using the patrol detachment as a guide/check list (and keep all things equal). This should last us at least 6/7 months.

Your new force should consist of a force you do not currently play and own the codex for (though the index is acceptable as it contains multiple forces) but can be aligned. So for example. If you play imperial fists. Ultra marines or crimson fists would be off limits. But Space Wolves or Blood Angels wouldn't. Likewise, A death guard player would have Night lords or Word bearers restricted. But could make a Nurgle (or other) daemon army.

The starting force would be those that can be made in the "start collecting" box. Or 1 HQ. 1-2 Troops and 1 vehicle

Only official gw models or fw will be allowed. Though where they are sourced from is up to you

Scoring will be done at the end of each month. And will be counted as follows
1pt per unit painted to "table top" standard.
Played a game 1pt
Won a game 2pts
Draw a game 1pt for both participants
Note. You can play any number of "friendlies" but can only play a "scoring game" once per opponent.

I also had the idea that like the dfc campaign. If everyone chips in a fiver. We could have a prize(s) at the end.



So lemme know what you think.

I'm interested - starting in March might be better as we can finish the Dropfleet League first.

And I've changed my mind since Russells original Thread and would like to give Imperial Guard/Astra Miliatrum a go.

that would depend on how much is done. I'd like to keep everyone on as level a playing field as possible.

I'm out then, by the end of January I should have about 2,000 points nearly fully painted of my new Army.

How about re-working the scoring for win/loss etc to perhaps have a bonus in points to those that have started new armies or start those with existing units on a handicap? So if you are bringing existing armies you need to play a blinder to do well and incentivise new armies as the path to victory is perhaps easier?

I may be interested in joining in with this and would love to start a Blood Angels army. With the newborn I'd perhaps struggle to keep up with the painting, but it would be great to use this as an opportunity to pad out an existing collection also? I've got a fair bit of stuff for my IG that's still unpainted that I'd love to finish off and this sort of escalation league would be perfect to help keep me motivated to finish off those odd squads/vehicles I've got without going for a full on army.

Would be nice to find some middle ground to get more people playing 40K again. There's been a great turnout so far for the DfC league.

Agree with all this Alan

I already own quite a bit of the Imperial Guard and would like to use this as an opportunity to start the army proper as I've only used them as an allied contingent before - I can't really justify starting a new army completely with so many half finished ones!, so if that's the case I would be out as well.

Or you do something similar to the Dropfleet League and make it points based, where you say start with a 500 point allowance and build up in blocks. That way people with new-ish or barely used armies could still join in, where as those who wanted could still start a new army could.

If you rework the painting points so that only units painted since the start counted (and trusted people to honest!), then those starting a brand new army would still get a better chance to win.
