Back in t’day, I and several other members, would tally our minis painted, minus minis obtained (and sometimes edit the number based on minis gifted away or sold etc). It was a great way to help motivate us to paint what we have (in a way to “earn” the right to get more shinies) and to generate content and blogs etc.
I loved the aspect of trying to beat my own score each year as well. As anyone that has seen my signature on the old CDO forum can attest to, there are some years I essentially managed nothing.
I want to change that. More to the point, I want to invite you all to embark upon this quest with me. To that end, I want to make this thread a repository for links to people’s blogs following this tradition of old!
I would suggest a member posts their intent to join in, link to their blog showcasing each purchase and completed model etc and then edit said post each year to add a link to the new year’s findings. I’d recommend updating said blogs either monthly or when a change happens, dependent on preference, but there’s no real rules to it. It’s to encourage diminishing our piles of shame and grey mountains!
I will shortly make my 2020 beat the grey blog and add it as a reply here. Join me, friends of the Dawi Zharr!
P.S. this isn’t specific to Chaos Dwarf armies either. I for one will have a blog for my Chaos Dwarf stuff that will be ongoing and these yearly blogs will be for everything coming and going and completed.
P.P.S. as an example, here is my old Pledge Blog for 2011 http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=8758
