Just discovered I have enough Grey Knights to make a 'Counts as' Librarian Conclave for a space marine detachment - Even though 1 Librarian is an IC, a Conclave counts as a unit... yes?

Hi all,

First time participating in the HPC!!

Just wondering, do you guys normally just post one commitment and complete that one before moving on to the next? (and am I interpreting the rules right?)

My February HPC is a 10 man Black Legion Tactical Squad. I posted that, and I'm assuming that if I finish it before February 15th, I can post another commitmen (Helbrute is next up.)

Now lets say I am almost finished with the Helbrute on Feb 14th, do I have to complete the Helbrute before posting the next commitment? Could I post another commitment when I've got one going to try and maximize the last two weeks of February?

I am probably overthinking this, I just want to make sure I'm following the rules & the spirit of the challenge. :) Looking forward to seeing all of your painted stuff!!

Feel free to post as many commitments as you want, but I find it easier to just do one at a time. That way you never have to go back and edit your post.

Loopy, how about an answer to the AdMech question that has been asked 3 times now.

This comes round again just as I was gearing up to make a dent into my backlog of hobby projects, what good timing!

I took part a couple of years ago but fell away due to non hobby commitments and not having much time to paint, this year though I should be able to clear some of those units off the painting desk and get to playing with a fully painted army! 8-)

This was allowed last year and I realized that I posted my first completed commitment without confirming for this year.

We can wait to base all of our models of a faction at the same time rather than doing them for each month, correct?
