So much wholesome energy on this thread! Keep it up lads, I’m deeply tempted to run a monthly league table for the community…
Haha I’m the least competitive person I know but…hell yeah. I’m gonna smash all you losers hahaha
In all seriousness - good motivator!
Can’t believe how many have signed up to this!!! This is brilliant!
SPORTS! STATISTICS! Blargh!
Let there be graphs!
@Oxymandias all the streaking grime in the world doesn’t give you the goblins to take me on boy
Mine’s here BATG 2022
It has begun!
… and if you know my painting habits but are still determined to follow my BATG, I suppose you have the same tastes in entertainment as Alastor
This may sound strange - anyone else collecting more minis lately than normal with thoughts of BOTG 2022? Feel like I’m pigging out before the big weigh-in for a weight loss challenge.
100% many of us have done this.
Still thinking about getting the blood bowl starter box before New Year’s, so…
I ordered a silly number the other day then realised they were going to turn up well into the new year. I’m not good at this.
I have done mine at the charge of the credit card timestamp. Mostly due to kickstarters, I want to feel that bulk shame instantly and maybe bully myself out of more purchases.
This holds some risk if the Kickstarter doesn’t deliver of course. But… I am trying to force the immediate pain instead of nuking batg a year or two down the line.
I‘ll do it like this as well, time of purchase counts, not time of delivery. In my mind, when I bought something I immediately added to the pile.
But it’s like @MichaelX already said a few times: with all these deliberations, it doesn’t really matter, as long as you treat “Ins” and “Outs” the same. When does a model count, can it be half-painted / primed / etc, is a war machine one model or four, all of it. And the second aspect, which might even be more important, also bears repeating: idea and goal of the batg is to get all of us to paint more, to make a dent in our combined pile of shame. Finding loopholes in the minutiae of the loosely formulated ruleset is against our own interests
I painted some stuff today and kept thinking “maybe I should leave this until January? … NAH!”
That’s the spirit!
Haha, when you start to fool yourself with BATG you have bigger issues…
I am in officially. Just created the thread:
Jackswift Surfing the Grey Tide [BATG 2022]
Hooray! It’s interesting how you’ve broken it down to count large projects and rework/repainting.
I figure counting everything I work on give me a better metric on overall progress, and will be even more motivating.
