RE: Tale of X Gamers Pledge Thread!

Annnnnnnd updated!

Now, go and start making your Before pictures! IvorTangrean beat you guys to it, and his stuff is looking far too grey.

Go ye little minions, make your painting threads!

I'm also about to update the thread to include the number of total participants, the tale of X gamers has gone on long enough. We're going to have an official start date with the beginning of the Golden Bat, so people can include their painting marathons together.

So on the 18'th all hell will break loose with their multicolored paints, cursing artists, and possibly bloody exacto knives. This start date will allow everyone to know what models they have to paint, for sure! (Especially those painting the new box set that we have no idea what's really in it) Also, those participating in the Golden Bat (Like myself) have a little more motivation/Creative juices flowing from seeing all the wonderful models being churned out by our comrades in the Tale.

So, the 18'th is the last day to sign up! I'll close/Lock the thread on the 19'th my time (GMT + 9) so it should be pretty late in the world on the 18'th when it locks.

Anyone looking to join has until that time. Good luck, and may your brushes move quicker than mine!

Yay, its begun! Good luck to everyone else participating in it!
starts on the 18th...i think.
At least I hope-my order hasnt arrived yet so i have nothing to paint of my pledge!


Also I think it would be a good idea if everyone put their pledge in the first post of their plog threads.
While it is nice to see the pictures of everyoens undercoated figures, it would be much easier if we knew what you were painting from your pledge!-rather than having to come to this thread to find out :tongue:

That's if they announce the new starter kit in time, but then I'll just update my painty blog when I get the box. O:

Nevah! You're only as good as your confidence is. =P (Had to say it, I apologize!)

Thanks for the updating, Ducky. 'Preciate it.

I should have my own Plog up and running by the end of this weekend, so you'll get to see my Grey and partially unassembled horde!

It's No problem some of us are in the summer term of collage, i've had about 2 of the last 5 weeks off and have had to write 1 short easy...which I haven't done. i.e i'm not struggling for time.

Edit: That's a whole heap of models we've pledged, I wonder how much there worth ££ wise?

You start painting on the 18'th .The Plogs are starting simply to showcase the 'Before' pictures, whicha re mandatory.

So you've still got just over a week to get everything in order and find a camera. :D

No worries Goggalor! Don't be so hard on yourself. =P

Enthusiasm is awesome. It's only a week or so away so it's not too bad.

As long as you have before and after pictures of whatever models you want to do, you're good.

I.E : Your situation, Santawraith is that you don't have the models -yet-. They're included in your pledge, but as long as you make before and after pictures of the unpainted models I'm satisfied.

Thanks for all the pledges, guys!

Where are the rest of your plogs? I know mine isn't up yet, so it's kind of hypocritical to bug you guys for yours, but the deadline is tomorrow! (My time, the 18'th)

I'll probably let the Tale start, and give people an extra week or so to jump in.
