Yeah - it's worth bearing in mind that if you want to enter the battle challenge as well as the painting challenge, you're not being forced to use only the stuff you've painted.

So - the Path of Hobby means you have to paint stuff according to a schedule; the Path of Battle means you have to play nominated matches each month. The two are parallel, and linked, but not the same thing.

Therefore I could do the painting thang with Space Wolves, but field Eldar if I wanted in the Battle stuff. I'd suggest that if you want to paint Apoc stuff for the Hobby challenge, that's fine - but maybe be realistic when it comes to fielding it (or not) as part of the battle stuff. The battles will be normal 40K rules (and any lists that can be accommodated within that, even if they're not run-of-the-mill).

Sounds feasible, but where can I get hold of rules for CP and CoCD?

Okay - if everybody's happy with that route, let's do it.

I may skip the Path of Battle, as I've only ever played about 3 games of 40K, and would prefer not to inflict my inexperience on somebody trying to play at least partially competitively :-)

Ok so the champion of champions rulespack can be found http://www.sadmuppets.org/articles/champion_of_champions_2010.pdf there.

As for combat patrol that is easy, the rules are the following:

At least one troops choice is to be taken, however all other FOC selections are optional
No characters over 2 wounds can be taken
Vehicles must not have armour greater than 33 (counting Front, Side once and rear)
No 2+ saves of any kind
No Ordinance Weapons allowed

@Phil - You dont get out of it that easy. I will play you a couple of times over the next 6 months. I will even keep painting my Fantasy and play you at that if you are more comfortable. No sense in painting up toys if you dont get to use them :)

Cool - I'll definitely be playing some 40K, fear not. Just maybe not competitively :-)

Don't worry, my army will be full of character and unique fun units! The hell with competition! We's gonna get stuck in!

Waaaaaaagh!

Got some really cool ideas for my mekboyz to bodge together!

I just need to decide on an easy and characterful colour scheme!
