As per discusion in the TOEG11 thread it looks like April 1st would be a popular time to start TOEG12. So, what is TOEG?


Tale of Epic Gamers:

Each participant commits to paint 500 points or more of epic a month and show their progress in a project log in the Tale of Epic Gamers forum section. The purpose of TOEG is to encourage people to finish a playable army over a period of 5–6 months (or more).

But i play NetEpic / want to do 200 points / etc etc ?
500 points is the suggested target for E:A, and anyone is free to exceed that. If you are painting for NetEpic/E40k/FWC substitute 500 points for a suitable alternative in that game's point system. There is a balance between being prescriptive and giving TOEG the required structure to set it apart from a regular log – do what you want but if you get too far from the core TOEG aims and raison d'être please consider if your log would be better off in general 6mm. We all know life comes before hobby, if you need to take time out that's fine.

Is it a competition?
No – it is a form of group motivation going towards painting an army. You can be as competitive as you like of course, but TOEG is not run as a formal Taccom competition event. This also means you can enter any TOEG painted minis in other Taccom competitions, such as epicomp.

When, where and how does it start?
Starts in this sub-board from April 1st 2012. Just make a new TOEG topic and get painting – ill add a link to your log in this thread to help index the participants.

Why is it starting so early?
TOEG has started in the summer before, but there seems to be enough interest to start as a group now.

But i want to start NOW/some other time?
TOEG is a group event, so it's great if people can start at the same time where possible. Feel free to get logs up now to test paint schemes, prepare minis and discus your ideas for the coming months. If you can't start off in April that's fine, join when you're able :)

My TOEG11 log is still running, wat do?
Congrats on keeping going so well ;D I have no idea, your choice – keep it running as 2011? change the name to 2012? start a new 2012 log and just run it over? whatever works best, sorry for the inconvenience.

~~~

Please include 'TOEG12' in your thread names. This makes it easy to tell at a glance which year a log is from.

So, what are peoples' ideas? armies? plans? ;D

This feels like a good opportunity to motivate myself to paint more Cadians. I've been playing the list with a shamefully under-painted army.

I'm going to jump in with eldar..... I've had 3k worth sitting in a shoe box for months now.....

I need to come up with a paint scheme that I like first, ideally based on an existing craftworld....

Mm. Tempting. Nurgle cult, feral orks, or speedfreeks? Have to paint gazillion 15mm soviets for Stalingrad PBI game first, though.

I'll be painting roughly the first 5 battle companies of the Charcarodon Astra space marine chapter. I've been working on ideas and what not with the lore from the badbab war books, should be fun. Might paint the whole thing though.

I will be doing either Space Marines (Blood Angels) or Eldar (craftworld Il-Kaithe).

I don't think I will be in a position to start in April as I want to finish off my Orks and IG first. So I will be looking to join in come summer time, probably start July.

Thanks

James

Well my plans for ToEG11 were so big i never even started a project log for them ::) … and i still don't actually have a single complete painted army for epic.

So instead of following my usual inclination towards doing something exotic like slaaneshi knights, harlequins, or freebooterz, which require vast amounts of conversion time that i don't currently have, I will be sensible and do something i actually have the models made for :( . A sad day, but I really should get an army painted :(

That leaves me with vanilla marines, armour heavy IG, or, the option most likely to get me an army: paint up more khrone/world eaters, the first wave of which started in ToEG09!

Think it'll be khrone, as i already have 3000+ points assembled and awaiting paint … if i can find them, no idea where the minis are.

Well my Ulthwé log will continue into 2012 for the time being. I do have Ork and Tyranid armies that need painting, and plans for others (IG), so plenty of scope for continuing :)

Imperial force - will probably be a right shambles, so far I dug out a couple of dozen tanks and one Warlord.

I'll be starting a month or so late. too much to get ready for Adepticon in mid April to hit the April 1 start date. Maybe repaint Eldar, maybe Cadians, perhaps a Marine force. Maybe even my Early Rebuplican Romans in 6mm. Now that would be Epic!

I'm tempted to give this a go, but I don't see myself as being in a position to actually get anything done one either Nids or Eldar this year. :(
