The Tale of Fantasy Painters 2011-2012 Signup


Mission Statement:

It is the goal of The Tale of Fantasy Painters, and all Tales for that matter, to help fellow gamers paint their armies by providing them a place to find support and encouragement.


The Tale:

So this thread is for the signup for the 2011-2012 The Tale of Fantasy Painters. It's the place to throw your name in, let us know what army you plan on painting, and how many points.

The painters involved have made a commitment to paint and post, by the last day of each month, approx 200 points of their chosen army. They do this each month for the next 12 months.

The way it works is that painting would begin in September and then in the first day or two of October a thread will be put up where you can post what you had done in September (this trend will continue for 12 months). You can include as much information as you wish, but some good things to include along with the picture are: the units, the total points for that month, conversions, highs and lows, plans for next month, and a number between 1 and 6. The number is important because it has to do with feedback.

A week after the initial thread is created you can then (and are encouraged to) add feedback on the work of others. Due to the large number of people who take part in these tales it is suggested that you only comment on those that have the same number as you. Of course if there are ones that really catch your eye, or you are a trooper and want to comment on them all, that is obviously awesome.

However, because people have real lives with exams, holidays, honeymoons, new babies etc, etc. They get two 'Jokers'. For two months within the year you can ‘play a joker’ and rather than post an update they can post "sorry guys couldn't get it done this month. Real life got in the way." But the other 10 Months they have to come up with (approx) 200 points of painted and based figures. That is 200 points for 10 of the next 12 months.

In twelve months time we will all end up with a finished 2000 point army.
(Or at least everyone who can see it through to the end ... it's harder than you think!)


Men and Boys:

Because this is harder than you would think ... As last year rather than try and hold everyone to 200 points a month I have decided to allow folks to join in and paint only 100 points a month. Whilst the goal for many remains getting a 2000 point army painted in a year the original and ongoing intention of this whole thing was to encourage and support folks to get stuff painted and 1000 points is better than no points! As a result we have two categories. 'Men' (painting 200 points/month) and 'Boys' (painting 100 points/month).


Frequently Asked Questions

Q : When can I join in? Does it have to be at the start or can it be any time?
A : Join in any time.

Q : Can I paint more than 200 points in a month?
A : Yes, but if you can do this time after time then you can probably commit to more. Feel free to sign up multiple times to reflect the amount of work you plan to do (for example sign up for Beastmen X2 and submit 400 points a month, or Beastmen Men + Boy submit 300 points a month).

Q : Can I paint less than 200 points in a month?
A : Yes. But we try to stay on track by painting more points in the next month to 'catch up'. For example if you only painted 100 points one month you could try and get 300 points painted the next month. Equally if you paint more one month you can take it easy and paint less the next month.

Q : What happens when I paint an expensive character?
A : This happens a lot. If your character was over 400 points you would simply paint him over two months (the sort of time your general deserves!) So You start posting him one month and post nothing the first month (unless you want to post WIP) then the second month you post the finished model and all the points get added on.

Q : What do I do when I'm done and the tale isn't over?
A : First thing to do is to include an army shot (everyone loves an army shot) and then it's up to you. Either stay on and paint a model now and then to take part, or start planning for the next tale. If you are really cocky then you can sign up for ANOTHER army is see if you can blitz it in time.

Q : Can I include a short narrative with each months post.
A : Yes. We love background stuff. Write as much as you like it will be read and enjoyed by many.

Q : Can I *insert something here that results in more painting*?
A : A thousand times yes!!!

Q : Can Doi drop out?
A : No he can't.

For myself I still have some greenskins to paint but I also would really like to FINALLY get my Brets painted...

I have a 3000 point list I want painted, so this is me signing up for Mens Brets and Boys Brets :)

EmperorNorton
03-08-2011, 19:27
Nice, looking forward to seeing your Brets, Mal.

Sign me up for 2000 points of Dark Elves, please.

Purplebeard

After much deliberation, I've decided to go with Warriors of Chaos. I have 12 of the old school 80s metal knights and 1 (and 3/4) of the chariots, plus the 'Warlock' figure. These are somehow going to form a basis for a WoC force.

Of course, because Knights and Chariots are both 'Special' choices, I may have to make it a 4000pt army - but that would probably still be smaller than 2000pts of anything else. :p

I may do Undead (because they suit my painting style perfectly), or O&G (since I have a few) too. The bonus with these two is that the figures are cheap cheap cheap (in $/) compared with the popular OOP stuff like Dwarves/Daemons/WoC. I'm not decided on the last two yet.

Sign me up for 2000pts WoC for now please. ;)

Finally getting some stuff done would be fun

Doi
03-08-2011, 23:56
Sign me up for 2000pts of Dark Elves and Ogre Kingdoms!

These are extensions to existing armies so probably wont be legal forces on their own (especially the Dark Elf one) but painting is painting :p.

I've tried this several years in a row, and I've failed. This year I'm going to start off in the boys category and see where it takes me. So, sign me up in the boys league for skaven.

Trustey
04-08-2011, 05:15
I'll be trying for 2k of O&G, a father/son project with my kiddo.

Fabius Bile
04-08-2011, 06:04
Wel, it was going to be 2000pts + of Brettonians, but then I saw the leaked images of the new Ogre models, so now I'm thinking I'll sign up for 1000 pts of each, even though I'll do more.

Jardain
04-08-2011, 09:35
Next month I will finish the latest TOFP and I will be joining this year again! This time it wont be High Elves but Empire in the boys category and perhaps one more army in boys, leaning at beastmen or some other "evil army".

And I promise I will be better at posting pictures this time!

iamjack42
04-08-2011, 12:41
I'd love to finish my High Elves. Sign me up for the Boys category, although I may try to upgrade to Mens if my impending nuptials don't cause too much trouble!

juicytomatoes
04-08-2011, 14:16
Sign me up in the Mens for Empire, please.

@iamjack42: Nuptials eh? Congrats! ;)

Zark the Damned
04-08-2011, 15:29
Tempted to join in with my DOW again, I have some more stuff for them. Not sure how many pts I have though, need to figure it out so I know what league I'm in :)

EffCee
04-08-2011, 15:45
Dark Elves and Vampire Counts in the men's category. I definitely aim to finish it this time.

Mens Brets....I really need some motivation to paint more often.

azhagmorglum
04-08-2011, 18:10
Ok, I'm going to sign up as boy for O&G

I hope I'll be able to make it, as I've got some stuff to sort out in my life at the moment that is really complicated.

MLP
04-08-2011, 18:25
Sign me up for the men category!

Still not sure on weather I'm doing a bretonian undead hunters or undead bretonians(VC) yet though. Aiming for 2000- 2400 points.

Aenarion
04-08-2011, 19:39
3rd time lucky perhaps? I'm debating either of my Vampire counts or Dark elves for the boys league. Only because im contemplating doing mens for 40k aswell.

Goat of Yuggoth
04-08-2011, 19:39
Let's do this! Signing up with Vampires, 'Men'-category please.

Edit: I have more than that, but lets start with the 2000 pts and do more if time permits!

Cheers,
Goat

Even though I'm behind in posting for the current Tale, sign me up for Boys Empire/High Elf again, if that's okay. If not, stick with Empire.

05-08-2011, 02:12
Hey Malorian, after thinking over it over the night, I think I may have been too optimistic... drop mine down to the Boys League, please. so it'd be Empire, Boys, thanks!

JonnyTHM
05-08-2011, 02:45
I think that I'm going to force myself to get off my butt and commit to do thing this. Otherwise my skaven army is never going to get painted! Count me in for skaven - boys crowd.

Nilo
05-08-2011, 02:52
Count me in for the Men's this year, and now that I have a taste for how much painting I can get done in a month's time I'm gonna be rolling my Vampire Counts instead of Bretonnia for this one.

Malorian
05-08-2011, 04:17
Hey Malorian, after thinking over it over the night, I think I may have been too optimistic... drop mine down to the Boys League, please. so it'd be Empire, Boys, thanks!

Put me down for 1000 points of Wood Elves this year.

Jacktheripper34
05-08-2011, 19:34
Sign me up for 2000 points of Tomb Kings, time for me to stop playing with grey plastic minis!

Edit- in the men's category please

RTGamer
05-08-2011, 22:02

No problem. If things go well you could always bump it up later :)

Many thanks! I do indeed hope to 'man up' later, if it turns out to be possible :D

Aenarion
07-08-2011, 09:27
It's been decided. Boys dark elves for me :)

DeathCat147
07-08-2011, 15:59
Sign me up. Boys with my Empire. After my last failed attempt a couple of years ago i will aim low with the hope of increasing to the Mens catagory at a later date if all goes well.

Richmt11
07-08-2011, 21:26
Sign me up for mens high elves. Would like some feedback on the thread I put up for opinions on my swordmasters before I get going as I don't wanna ruin my models with a poor colour scheme...

I'm gonna see how mens goes I got 5000pts of high elves and 3000pts O+G so depending if I hit 2k early I'll either carry on HE or switch... And if I get more done a month may go 1 men 1 boy see what happens :)

ironduke
07-08-2011, 22:25
Sign me up for 2000pts Empire in the boys category.

Should be able to manage most of this maybe even more.

Sign me up for Orcs and Goblins! Mens category, please.

Djekar
08-08-2011, 20:18
I'm going to have to go with the Men's category for WoC. I've had Warriors for proabably 10 years and have had a great scheme for them for at least 2 years and they still hang around unpainted.

Most importantly, the misses informed me recently that I can't start on my Cult of Slaanesh Dark Elf army until everything I already have is painted. Onward inspiration!

Also (and I'm hoping this isn't too much) sign me up for the boys with "muh boyz". I have roughly 1k points left to paint, and I need them painted for the above reason, but also because muh boyz have always treated me right and so I feel like it's time to get them finished up and treat them right back.

gogs78
08-08-2011, 22:05
Think i might give this a go!

High elves in the "mens" section!

You dont often see those words in the same sentence!

Shadowcaptain EThren
09-08-2011, 01:21
I have been a long time lurker of warseer, and have just found the "Tale of ..." This may be the catalyst that will finaly get my Bretonnians painted after two years of slowly collecting them.

I would like to join the "Men" section with my bretonnians and am planning on adding fluff in a unit by unit bases as I post them.

Zujara
09-08-2011, 21:20
I'll sign up for the Boys category, all Goblin army!

Matt.Wood88
09-08-2011, 21:24
Could you sign me up for 'Mens' category with ogres please? :D
I will be most likely doing more than 2000 points (yet to decide how many seeing as the new book isn't out yet) but until I write a list I'll just work towards 2000 :)
Cheers

I'm going to go brave and commit to 2000 points for this as well as TO40KP. Planning to expand my Drow inspired DE army although I might plump for Nurgle themed OK if they really take my attention!

10-08-2011, 12:35
Sign me up for Mens, going to be doing Monsters from the Storm of Magic expansion. I've got half a years worth of models sitting around that I need to paint, plus who knows what else will come along in the year to come (Hopefully Cygor/Ghorgon, so I can add them to my existing Beastmen army as well as using it for this painting tale).

I'll probably jump in with something else at some point as well in the boys league, but I'm not sure what I want to do yet. Whether I expand my High Elves more, paint up the Orcs I've got, or go back to my first army Lizardmen (Or you know, whatever other shiny thing pops up and distracts me along the way).

Daniel36
10-08-2011, 14:13
Wait, what? Is it that time of year again already? My my... Not sure if I will sign up this year. If I do, I will not go for a set amount of points, rather a set amount of minis.

Always wanted to do this, never found the internet time.

Set me up for High elves in the Mens.


(And if I finish them in time maybe I'll enter a men's for my chaos dwarfs as well. Try to have two armies finished in 12 months.. :p)

I think I might struggle with 2000 points so can I go half man half boy and go for 1500 points please?!

The differnce between 1500 and 2000 isn't all that large.

I would like to push you to try and do 2000, but if not then just be a overly successful Boy ;)

Braad
11-08-2011, 21:35
Considering the connection I have to the tale, I do think I should join up again. Put me down for boyz, with Orcs and Goblins of course!

And that gives me a good reason to get going at those savages. Although I do have to admit that a certain place I visited during my vacation inspired me for a piece of terrain, that might be quite a bit challenging to make.

Shall I make a table again?

spikedog
12-08-2011, 00:03
Well, well, well, time for the Tale again is it.

Count me in for this year:

Mens - Chaos Dwarfs.

Put me down for 2000 points of Empire, please.

I can do it, and it might be easier if I do, but I wouldn't be doing it as well as you do. (I'm lazy ;))

Braad

Oh, I'll just give it a start then, and see where I get.

Stretchit
12-08-2011, 13:10
After keeping an eye on the last few months of this years tale I'm going to take the plunge and join you fine folks. Personally this is a bid to get things finished rather than having units half done (or less) throughout my army. I'm hoping that's ok and that there aren't rules saying every model has to be painted from scratch?? (EDIT: Most models are only undercoated)

I'm looking to go 3000 points Orcs & Goblins total but think it will be easiest if I split it 2k Orcs and 1k Goblins as that's similar model counts and roughly how my army list works anyway. So one mens and one boys please.

Morkash
12-08-2011, 18:21
Hey,
I would sign up as well! Ogre Kingdoms for me. :) Late September is perfectly timed as well!

Here's a really stupid question, but I'm going to ask it any way. Are we posting completed models in September, or are we just putting WiP pics up and completed work in October. I remember being slightly confused last year.

You start painting in september. So WIP is all you would have for that month. Then in Oct you post your first set of painted models.

Mr. Shine
14-08-2011, 06:30
Well I've made (most of) the purchases to get me started on 1000pts of High Elves, and I'm going to need to have them painted at some point... so sign me up for Boys' League, High Elves!

Kaos
14-08-2011, 09:39
This thread made me get an army together last year so I thought that this year its time to add another 2000p to it so I have more choices.

Sign me up for WOC 2000p!

Cheers-Kaos

14-08-2011, 18:37

Since Emperor Norton is joining i will try this, too. Sign me up for boy`s, cause i am involved in the ToTB, the ToSGP and the ToBGP, too.
Still have to decide if i will update my Khemri troops or start Empire.

I would like to push you to try and do 2000, but if not then just be a overly successful Boy ;)

True, but it would cost more money which is a concern at the moment! I've got a hydra to paint for the first month and I do probably have enough left over for one more month's worth but after that I'll have to buy everything! I am planning a dragon which is a lot of points though....Hmmm, I think I'll just see how it goes, aim for 2000 but possibly find it coming in lower.

dwarfhold13
15-08-2011, 16:33
After a year off of painting, and getting use to school and a kid, I've been picking up the brush more regularly, and also I have a goal of a 2500 pt. theme list for the year (before the next round of GT's).. I have no idea what I'm doing yet, but put me down for the men category, and I won't dissapoint this time.
I'll keep you posted on army.. but I'm torn between:
Dwarfs pending on new book
Witch elf Hellebron list
Wurzag savage orc list
or any variation of those two
thanks guys!

Hey folks, does anybody have or can anybody suggest a good place to get some wings as I want to convert some deamonettes of slaanesh into harpies as the harpy models quite frankly suck balls! I was thinking of some scourge or gargoyle wings, or maybe even some night lords backpacks which I can clip the wings off. I've found some gargoyle wings on eBay but they're my only option at the moment so if somebody has some wings lying around they want to trade or sell or can suggest alternative places then it'd be much appreciated.

Queekvondrak
16-08-2011, 12:55

I'm going to put something up in the Wanted forum but I've found when I've been after stuff or suggestions in the previous TOFP's that this has been a good place to ask as there's always loads of people in it and it tends to get checked more often. I do like the scourge wings but at the moment they're 2.50 a set on eBay which is a little excessive as it'll end up costing 40 for 10 harpies (although admittedly that's less than they cost now for the crap models but with the wings costing more than the deamonettes it seems steep). Also want to check that there's no other cool wings that I've not thought of!

I want to paint the little buggers, some will be specifically for a forest goblin army, with snotlings riding spiders and howdahs on gigantic spiders to represent pumpwagons. I've also got some ideas to convert regular pumpwagons to have flappa's and stuff.

dude.. you need about a quart of green paint, and a lot of devlan mud.. you could start a revolution... dump paint in.. shake a little to separate models and wait to dry, add devlan and shake!!!!

i'm getting really stoked about this tale.. stupid call of duty stole my attention for the past year.. along with school i had no time.. i'm swearing off video games and choosing the more therapeutic of the two.
i'm not going to lie though, i'm jumpstarting on my pile over here because i'm really going to take my time on these.. going for a very aborigine theme and the trolls will be painted like poison frogs.. even a giant in a tiki mask... but thats all i'm saying for now!!!

I'm feeling much the same.

I'm really excited about the prospect of painting three different armies at once (between here and the 40K side) but nervous about the start since I'm struggling to get the current TOFPs last month finished with uni work at the moment. Looks like I'll be finishing the current TOFP a week late and then having to play catch up with the new TOFP right from the start :p.

Hi all. I just realised that my Dwarves have no war machines and none of the brilliant character models I really want for them, nor an Anvil of Doom (such a good model). Therefore I need to paint some more stuff - put me down for another 2000pts of Dwarves please. As for the WoC, I will see how I get on, before deciding whether to go for 2000 or 4000pts.

I'm actually feeling quite excited about it. Last year I tried the tale with very unrealistic expectations of my own painting speed.

This year, I have got a plan which involves me painting a couple of "expensive" models (e.g. Chaos Ogres) and a handful of "cheap" models (e.g. Maurauders) each month so that I don't try and paint 40 Marauders in a month (a la last year), fail miserably, get disheartened and give up.

I've planned out the painting schedule for the year and I feel it is very achievable, and I am really looking forward to it (In fact I might cheat a little bit and start this weekend - it's a bank holiday in the UK, which means a three day weekend. On the other hand it's also my 27th birthday (CUBIC BIRTHDAY!) so I may just lie in my own filth, hungover and watching all three extend LotR back-to-back).

I've just got a place on a postgrad course for the next year and I'm not sure how much time I'll have. I thought it would be easier to wait and see how I settle into the first couple of months, then if things work out I can decide to rejoin. I'll be ticking along with stuff anyway and try to keep up a moderate pace with you all, hopefully I'll be back although probably with a smaller target.

Why do both tales have to start in the same month! :cries:

Just signed up for my first Tale (40k) and then saw this thread. I've never done a WFB army before but just ordered the new OK book as am quite taken with them (love the 'ice age' feel of them).

So I'm seriously considering going with a 'boys' OK pledge. However I'd almost certainly have to use a joker next month (and perhaps the one after) as what little spare time I will have will go into my Orks. Plus I've spent spent September's hobby budget on the OK book (and a pack of the gastromancy cards) so I can't even start building fatties until October!

I need to give this some more thought - when's the cutoff date for signing up?

EDIT: I've decided to just focus on the 40k one this time around - both time and money aren't exactly free flowing atm. Best of luck to everyone and I'll be watching the updates with interest!

Mr. Shine

I'm pretty sure you can sign up at any point during the tale, though earlier is obviously better! Maybe you could delay it a month or two, and aim for 750pts instead? Or just paint a little more each month you are active to make up the difference? :)

Just a couple more days! Exciting! Nerve-wracking!

Or possibly pick up the box of White Lions I need to get the 1000pts all bought... and assemble them, plus the four extras I bought on eBay...

Or maybe get my 25 Sea Guard models assembled so I can get started on half of them...

Choices, choices!

I think just split up the army into roughly 2000 points and 1000 points and it should be fine.
That's what I did with my Beastmen last year. Was a bit of a pain because I kept going back and fiddling around with points values, whats my lord, whats not, etc.
But I guess in terms of book keeping the organisers know you're doing 3k points all up, rather than the listed 2k points for men.

colonel kane - I think you're army is the one I'm most looking forward to seeing already! If you can stay in the Tale and get the full army paints it's going to be seriously impressive.

On a side note I'm getting shiny new toy syndrome and am really tempted to do an OK army as well. I suspect that doing three armies might become too much and one of them will fall my the wayside being as I have so little spare time already but I'm going to take the plunge and tentatively sign up with 1000k of OK as well please. They will be jokered for at least the first month though due to the fact that I can't afford to buy any yet!

his list is more to make fun of the weaknesses of the orc spiders lol.. he's got a shaman on arachnarok, and all characters on gigantic spiders.. i think 8 in all! then everything else is spider riders and snotling bases using the tiny spiders that come with the arachnaroks instead... the list is truly horrible to play, as we all know those spiders are really just too easy to kill (and arent really cheap enough to bring enough)

31-08-2011, 08:19
Quick question before the tale begins, I plan on taking up two months to paint my general though he is only 229 points. ( Bretonnian characters are on the cheap side.) Will I have to play catch up since he is only 229 points or since he is my army general would that be okay to give him two months.
I plan on adding terrain to his mounts base and would rather take my time with that then rush to complete it in a month.

Jonahmaul
31-08-2011, 08:24
From my previous experience in the Tale I would say this is fine Shadowcaptain. Some months you will be over, some under but as long as it roughly averages out over the year it's fine (I'm planning on doing a dragon for my DE's which is going to be spread over 3 months).

Just in time before the tale starts.
Sign me in for 1000 points High Elves please.

So that would make me a .... boy??? I don't think my family will be happy if I change gender. But just for counting points it's ok.

Well it's the 1st of September for me, so I'm hopefully going to get busy tonight when I get home from work!


Bake a cake, base and assemble some more models... hopefully a chance to prime tomorrow after work or this weekend, and get painting my first unit, woohoo!

Ok not sure where to put this so i thought i would start here, its a tiny frustration but none the less a frustration, i picked up a bits bag from ebay basically cos it had a complete bolt thrower ( i won the auction for 5) now i sort the bits and discover it has almost 8 silver helms, i'm missing the horses 1 body 1 head and a few of the small icons that stick on the shoulders.

i went to multiple bits sites to price it up and to complete the unit its going to cost 13 including postage however brand new from like wayland its 15 absolutly gutted,

well anyways if any of you guys happen to have any of these bits im after maybe you can help me for a cheaper price than 13 :-)

I feel for you Mace1982. I once bought a box of bret knights that had NO horses in it... well I didn't know I could bring the box back so I bitz ordered (back when you could) the horses.

Turns out that for the cost of the horses I could have bough a brand new box :rolleyes:


As for your situation, sorry I can't help.

Mace1982.. have you checked "hoard'o'bits" on ebay? i've bought from them before and they are pretty quick. see if you can find their name and look through their store to find the auctions containing what you are looking for.. most of the time on higher demand items they have a buy it now, and on the 'left over' bits they sell as a simple auction. same thing for empire, if you buy state troops then go to hoard o bits to buy 10 more bodies and 10 more heads and it's considerably cheaper than just buying another box of state troops... that is if you want to make both swordsmen and halberds.
man.. the starting line came up quick! i am in the hardest semester i will be in for my curriculum right now and falling behind.. but i'm going to stay on top of at least getting stuff done with painting.. it's a year goal, not a weekend thing!
check this out:

Physics 2102 (electrostatics and magnetics)
Calculus 3
ME Thermodynamics (notoriously the hardest class at LSU-30% pass rate)
Engineering Materials Science (basically chemistry with calculus)
ME Design (50 data entries on reverse engineering due in 3 months!!!)

Isaac Newton is making my life difficult this semester!

Can I change mine from Beasts too Warriors? Little accident with the Beasts, so it'll have to be more of the spiky lads.

Will any of the ogre players in here be able to spare some ogre bits?
My armys going to be based on the crimson king fluff in the tomb kings book.
My tomb king raseptra will be the son of rakaph the 3rd in my fluff. Rakaph the 3rd was the son of imrathepis,the crimson king himself
Therefore I need trophies and theres also a chance of a fluff partnership if any ok player wants to be my arch nemesis the thunderhoof tribe :-P pm me if interested

Johnny G - never too late to sign up! Welcome to Warseer and welcome to the Tale.

Colonel - I might potentially have some spare bits although I'm only planning on doing a small army for the Tale and I am going to need bits myself as want to convert my characters seeing as most OK ones are very expensive and not great miniatures! What sort of stuff are you after? My army is going to be Nurgle themed so if you happen to have any Chaosy bits lying round I'd more be after that

colonel kane trine
01-09-2011, 13:27
I have a few chaos bits mainly warrior bits and a headless knight steed
Id only be after a few heads and maybe a standard
