The Pledge

For Wargamers the “Pledge” is sort of the Holy Grail of gaming. Something worth striving for, but ultimately a hopeless goal.

For those of you who haven’t encountered it before, taking the Pledge is when a wargamer attempts to paint more figures in a year than he/she buys. It really is a hopeless task, but it’s one I’ve decided to attempt in 2009.

It has not gone well so far.

As of today I’ve painted 344 figures (or their US equivalent in GW terms). This is quite excellent progress of me. Or it would have been if I’d not bought 1275 figures already this year.

My current score is:

Bought: 1275
Painted: 344
Sold: 18

Net result: -913

Must try harder.
