Default A Tale of 4 Gamers - Part 1

Well it's time everyone! Time for yet another tale of 4 gamers! (insert applause here)

Most of you are familiar with how this works, but for those of you who aren't I'll explain!

First and most importantly, because we're not playing each other. Both Fantasy and 40k are allowed! It's about time we see more square-bashers anyway!

Every month 4 of us are going to try to buy build and paint a bit of an army until we reach our goal of having a completely painted 2000 pt force! This first period (Today until April 30th) our goal is to get 250 points of our army painted. This 250 does not have to follow a force org chart and will be scored as follows:
--- 5 points for having it completely painted and based
--- 3 points for having at least 3 colors on every model
--- 1 point for having some color that isn't just gray or primer
--- 0 points for not having anything done

At every point level the players are also going to have to post a battle report (yes even at 250) The players are going to have to, at some point this month. Play a battle and post a battle report about it. (We want more than just who won guys) Whether a turn by turn break down or a story either is ok. And win, loss, or draw doesn't matter. Just as long as you post a report on or before April 30th you'll nab yourself 2 additional points!

Rule Addition: if for some reason you are unable to finish painting you models in a month, don't worry about it! It just means a lower score. Next month, however, you must not only paint your new submission, but you must also finish last months. Failure to finish the months prior painting will result in -1 point. Example; it's month 3 and you've finished your new 250 pts and your battle report. so you have 7 points! but you never finished either of the last two months so you would lose -2 points, resulting in a score of 5. If you finished 1 of the previous months but not the other you'd get 6. Understand? Good!

Those are essentially the rules. Any questions please feel free to post them!

Now, on to the players!

First up we have The Gunslinger! with Space Marines.
The list for 250 is:
---10 Tactical Marines
------Melta Gun
------Missile Launcher

---5 Scouts

Next, we have Ratvan! with Tomb Kings
The list for 250 is:
---A Warsphinx
------Firey Roar

Third, we have jondoe 297! with Daemon Hunters
The list for 250 is:
---Ordo Xenos Inquisitor
------Rad Grenades
------Psychotroke Grenades
------Psyker with Hammerhand

---5 Purifiers
------2 Psycannons
------2 Force Halberds
------Daemon Hammer

Finally, myself cgall10 with Orks
The list for 250 is:
---20 Shoota Boyz
------2 Rokkit Launchas
------Big Choopa

---6 Lootas

Lastly Finally... If that makes sense is khrone forever with The Empire
The list for 250 is:
------lvl 2

---Hand gunners (between 15-20)

(submited a 280 pt list, there's no problemwith painting all those models but the game must be 250)

So that's it! I know I'm excited to look at something that's not a bunch of black and gray minis! Questions and comments welcome from everyone and for the players,

Good luck and happy painting! :D
