Default A Fluff Tale Of Nine Gamers [Discussion available, entries closed.]

Okay chaps, time for the revolution call to sound.

I had this idea while chatting with a friend earlier today and as something to offer to TO while my laptop has decided to be smelly and rubbish - hence pretty much all my other projects putting on hold.

Are you all familiar with the Tale of Four Gamers series' done in White Dwarf?

For those who are not...

There are four gamers. Each pick an army. The first month they do 500pts of it, and play games against each other and other hobbyists and see how it runs. The next month they do another 500pts and so on til 1500pts. It can be changed to 250pt increments if that is easier.

So... following my "play what you want to play not what the rules says will work best" article, I was wondering if anyone wanted to join me on a Tale of Four Gamers chronicling myself and three (or possibly more or less) other TOers building fun lists for 5th Ed and seeing how they work. We can post up photos of our models and others can see the painting, and talk through army lists and battle reports.

Of course, this does kind of mean a new army... so only those who are planning on doing so anyway should try this. I don't want to burn holes in people's pockets, but I'll be doing my Tyranids anyway and I thought this might be a fun way to do it - rather than just me talking about my experiences, having some others do the same and seeing how we get on.

Is anybody interested in this?

[hr]

Circus - Tyranids - Mecha Nidzilla
Valten - Tau - Salamander style burny fun
Orkwarrior - Space Marines - Space Wolves
Scoutninja - Space Marines - Red Scars custom chapter
Ravager Zero - Tau - Outcasts looking to regain honour
D Black - Chaos Daemons - Tzeentchian, converted special characters, Silver Tower and Heresy era 1k Sons
Majonga - Chaos Space Marines - Black Legion
ShasOPeteDawg - Chaos Space Marines - Theme? Legion?
Psyco - Eldar - Storm Serpents of Yme-Loc, Mechanised Revival

Would you be following the teachings of Circus as laid down here?

Best summed up in this quote:

That and one of the other guys inspired the first line of my last post, i.e. the revolution call

Edit: I guess it could be done by just repainting an old army... but to be honest it'll work better with a whole new army because then we have the modelling aspect too and it gives a rounder, fuller article/set of articles.

I'll have a stab at this. I got quite a lot of swag at Games Day, so I'll be good for a month or so. (I won't be available on monday as I'm driving home to NC.)

New Space Marines.

If people are still interested, feel free to still put your name down. There'll be a week or two before we start, I expect, and we could just as easily have a Tale of Twelve Gamers ;D

I want to do eet!
I'm currently re-doing my Tau (sorry to the four thousand other Tau players here :)
I may be a tad slow with the painting, but I have some stuff I prepared earlier. :P

EDIT: I may finally be able to do a conversion guide to my take on the El'Tael suit…
And the Warfish 2.0…
And the Tau Heavy Tank 2.5…

Metal fans are allowed to use stereotyped generalisations of other types of music. Why? Because the "avatar" of Rap and similar music is a binged up black guy who holds his gun in such a way as he will probably shoot his own foot off in a gunfight. The avatar of Metal is a bearded, unwashed Scandinavian guy who kills you, your family, your town, your country and the neighbouring country because there isn't much else to do up in the snowy fjords of Vikingland.
