The Crossroads of Courage League has been a huge motivator for finally getting some models painted that I have had sitting around. It has also pushed me on trying to make terrain. It is something I have been meaning to do for years, but I have procrastinated because I wasn't sure how it would turn out. So knowing that I would get points for it was enough for my desire to win beating out the chance of the terrain looking bad. Overall I think it has turned out well, and the extra points I earned for the hobby achievement points has pushed me up to win the first two seasons. Our group only has about 8-10 players most weeks getting 1-2 games each so adding in a point or two each week for modeling is a 33-50% boost in points.
So Season 1 started off slow. The second week I made a dynamite crate because I had picked Sowers (mainly for personal narrative reasons) and the week after I painted Gallant. Neither turned out great because, honestly, both were a little rushed.
The fourth week I painted a Hammersmith, which is actually a fully magnetized kit, but I figured the hammers would paint up easy with no electric effects. I also made Mining Equipment terrain that I think turned out pretty well. Well enough that I may even make some tents to have a mining town set. The crate is big enough for a small base to hide behind completely or take cover behind the small box. For some stupid reason I really liked how the pickaxes turned out.
So Season 1 complete with two new Heavy Warjacks and one good piece of terrain.
