[Archive] THE PLEDGE MMXI: Sign up here!

AGPO:

It’s nearly 2011 and [/b]

Last year, we ran The Pledge MMX to encourage people to get more miniatures painted in 2010. In the new year the pledge will be back, and this time it’s going to be better than ever.

Many hobbyists suffer from PMAS (Plastic and Metal Aquisition Syndrome). This condition leads to a heap of half built minis and starts of different armies amassing in your hobby space with no sign of ever being completed. The aim of the pledge is to help you turn that heap into a fully painted collection for gaming or display that you can be proud of. You’ll do so with the support of your fellow collectors here on CDO.

For [/b][/color] as in previous years, members will be asked to keep track of their painting progress in their signature, under the heading of The Pledge. However, this time I’m asking pledgers to come up with specific goals to post in the thread. This could be anything, but I’ll list some examples below:

“In 2011, I pledge to paint 100 miniatures”

“In 2011, I pledge to completely paint a 2,000pt Chaos Dwarf Army”

" In 2011, I pledge to paint more miniatures than I buy"

“In 2011, I pledge to finally finish my 60 strong hobgoblin unit”

“In 2011, I pledge to finish converting the unit of dragon ogres sitting on my desk”

"In 2011, I pledge to create a painting blog and update it with new material at least once a month"


Your goal can be as ambitious as you like, and tailored to fit your free time. The only conditions are that the pledge must be painting or modelling related, and it must include a clear goal. It can be for any army, for any system. If you succeed, you’ll get a nice shiney signature banner or medal for your efforts. However, if you fail, you will bare the signature of shame for the rest of the year. Think of it as a little added incentive! :wink:

To enter simply fill out and re-post the pledge form at the bottom of this post in the thread below:
