#Squaduary: An invitation and explanation

By | 26th January 2018

Another year has rolled by and #Squaduary 2018 is coming ever closer! For those new to the blog and didn’t see it last year I will pop the rules down below:

  1. Build and paint a full squad, or more, during the month of February. That is it. It can be from any game system you like.

As extras you can take photos each week and post along with everyone else. Every Thursday I will try to gather up as much progress as possible from around the net. From Twitter, Instagram and my fellow bloggers.

Previously we have laid out some stages as a guidline, I will repeat them below in case they help.

++ The Stages +++

There will be four stages, each taking a week, to this:

1. Assembly: 1st – 7th

Taking them off the sprues or putting them on bases, what ever way you get them ready for paint. 

2. Basic painting: 8th – 14th

This is your basic coating and blocking in colours.

3. Clean up and details: 15th – 21st

Cleaning up your colours and picking out all the bits to make the mini stand out.

4. Basing: 22nd – 28th

Adding the base or just painting it out.

Stages 2 and 4 can be swapped as per your own style. Hell you could ignore the lot, I am not the Corpse God Emperor of you!

There no hard rules for this event because this is a hobby and so should be fun for all. Getting that unit of Horus Heresy Destroyers done, your Orc Blood Bowl team out, your Malifaux crew ready to game, etc. Use this as a chance to gain some hobby momentum for the new year.

If you want a quick look back at last years event the post is here.

We are looking forward to seeing what comes out of the event this year. Lets see if we can break last years record of models.
