This year, I am going to be playing...
Mike 'the Dark Templar' Reynolds, alerted me to this 'Wargame Hobby 'Bingo' card created by the incredibly talented, and jolly nice chap, Rob Hawkins Esq. It is generic enough to be used for any historical period or hobby style. Each row contains a square for painting, conversion work and scenery building, so you need to do a little bit of everything to fill it in. The card is reproduced with kind permission from Rob, but if you haven't already done so, I would urge you to take some time to visit his truly inspirational site: The Rob Hawkins Hobby Blog
I have created a separate page, here, to chart my progress...

Two fat ladies.......a fun idea!ReplyDelete
Somebody had to mention the ladies, I had my money on Ray. ;)Delete
If it encourages more hobby it's got to be a good thing, shall watch your progress with interestReplyDelete
Thank you Dave, I liked the variety of options on offer.Delete
Brill idea, Michael. I absolutely love it!! Certainly something I'd be interested in looking at once the AHPC has finished rather than my own monthly challenges. Thanks for this :-)ReplyDelete
Happy to share, I reckon you could mark a few off already.Delete
Ha ha, this reminds me a bit of my own "painting generator", should be fun and sort of turns the mundane process of painting and making stuff into a game of it's own.ReplyDelete
Anything that helps to keep me interested is worth a go. ;)Delete
Really great idea!ReplyDelete
Great fun too.Delete
:) you're the second one I read this year who borrowed it (the first one was Richard Smith), I think it's a great idea. Perhaps I should make one for myself too, just to keep me going.ReplyDelete
As soon as I saw it and read the diversity of ideas I was determined to give it a go, sounds like a blast.Delete
Please promis to spell out the BINGO ere then you get it :)ReplyDelete
I shall be shouting it from the rooftops Michael. :)Delete
Now this looks like fun, will have to give it a go!ReplyDelete
There is certainly plenty of fun to go around.Delete
Sounds fun. Good luck!ReplyDelete
Thank you Simon.Delete
OH! Now we can watch your progress with the item posted for the square your filling! I would suggest however not dabbing the bingo blotter on your monitor!ReplyDelete
Now I've been thinking about that and have a cunning plan, just need to finish something so that I can try it out! :)Delete
Did all the squares today..HOUSE!!!!!ReplyDelete
Ok..I´ll go for that..25 squares should be easy enough. The Paint all the minis in a board game and Play it might be a sticking Point but I´ll think about that.
The one Thing. The middle one. can the based army be one that´s already finished or one that is in progress when one starts the Bingo ?..oh, and what constitutes a army? Mine tend to be pretty open ended..ie; there is no end in sight.
I´ve thought....chess, would that Count?Delete
Chess...AHA!!!! Now I have had an idea :-)Delete
I think you can interpret in anyway you like. I am going for new posts this year can count, so I have a few to claim already. ;)Delete
Ok...I´ll have a bash..see what happensDelete
Fingers crossed for a 'full house'.ReplyDelete
Sadly I doubt I'll ever get a 'line' (in nay direction, let alone a 'full house.ReplyDelete
Hobby Bingo ... what an ingenious idea.ReplyDelete
