The pledge....mk II

So while the main topic of this Blog at the moment will be my preparations for the Flames of War tournament at Warfare Reading UK (http://www.wargamesassociationreading.co.uk/) I thought I might as well pop some other hobby bits and pieces up here to keep things interesting!

Oh dear Bloggs.....

This is what awaited me on my desk at work this morning..... I think I have failed at 'the pledge' (See http://hobbybrush.blogspot.co.uk/2011/05/taking-pledge.html for more on this)

The basic idea is that you can only buy what you have painted, so if you need a new tank, you've got to paint and finish one of your existing tanks. Which is great, only I live in constant fear.
Constant fear that any second, I could be obliterated by a Hobby-lanche......

Yup. This isn't all of it.
It wouldn't be so bad if that was all there was, but I can't be bothered to take pictures of all the flat. Its alot, needless to say.

The Solution?


I'm going to take the uberpledge, and stick too it. Only this time, it'll be to a 2x1 ratio. I want a new platoon of tanks? I'll need to paint two before I'm allowed to buy it. Some of the Guildford Games Club members are joining me (although non on the uberpledge) so I'm sure we'll have another post then.

Although I'm not stupid enough to make the pledge now with the Colours wargame show on the weekend..... :-D



  1. Well that should be entertaining. You can always cry on my shoulder down the pub when you abjectly fail…

    1. Or drink the beers of victory you will owe me when I win!
