    In my new role as a moderator I want to try and encourage you guys and girls to paint and convert more so I was thinking about starting a thread where we do a monthly commit to paint a unit, model, monster etc.

    Similar to what TGA does but our version but just a light hearted no pressure sort of thing.

    If you have any ideas post them here and we will create something we can all get involved in.

    Cheers

    ONE model per year! ... maybe two (if it is truly an exceptional year!).

    That's the idea it makes you focus on one model/unit etc

    This would probably help me get back into the hobby again if it got going! I'm getting tired of just lurking on the forum :p

    So is the idea everybody tries to do about same model?
    Jan = Saurus on a Coldone
    Feb = Skink with....
    Etc.

    I think the idea is everyone chooses what to paint freely.

    I have an idea, the winner if each month can choose a custom subtitle for his profile! It's cheap and quite cool.

    Let's not get too crazy. That is like an optimal two year output for me! :p
    By winner do you mean anyone who completes their challenge, or are you suggesting some sort of painting competition?

    I think it would be cool to have a voting once finished, to encourage people even more but maybe it's just me.

    Me neither, I just got that from his suggestion.

    If it's a fixed model then I won't be participating on it, sadly I have my own painting schedule regarding my army.

    That would be interesting, but it does favour those that paint fewer models (monsters, characters) over those who wish to paint large units.
