One of the things that I love about miniature wargaming is that you get to paint your minis. Not all people feel that way though, and any method to make painting more fun or rewarding is a good thing in my book. Which is why I’m sucha big fan of the Journeyman League. Giving people an excuse to paint is great, and well making a points based league revolve around BOTH painting and playing is a great incentive to get people to off their butts and painting. And as even more incentive, I’ll be keeeping a log of what all the players have submitted for their painting points!
In this case though I’ve tweaked the league system into more of a series of mini-tournaments, leading up to the grand-daddy of throwdowns during Sporecon. That way hopefully more people will have stuff painted and be able to join. Also, great tournament/steamroller practice! The first tournament will be a 15 point slugfest without scenarios, mainly to get new players used to the mechanics inherent in Warmachine and Hordes. Subsequent tournaments will have higher pointage levels and bring in the Steamroller rules.
But enough talking! You’re here to see some pictures!
The great dragon Everblight is definitely seeing a horde of new recruits as Jon gets his Rhyas and team painted up.
Not to be outdone, Wil’s also got a veritable SWARM of shredders and other bitey nommy creatures as well.
And for some reason all the Dragons have a showing this week, as Elliot got his Banethralls painted over the past few weeks too!
Jon: 5 points
Wil: 8 points
Elliot: 4 points
If you’re interested in joining the league, forms are at PI at $20 for entry into the entire league (4 tournaments), with the first league in the beginning of February. Just sign up and then email me or link your pictures on our Facebook group and I’ll start counting up your points too!
