Inspired by the Achievements style events at Blood & Glory and Warhammer World, we wanted to bring you the biggest paint-battle of 2021!!
Facehammer and RealmRift have teamed up to create a real hobby buzz throughout the entire year. Collect as many challenge badges as you can before December 31st and maybe you will be crowned the Hobby Hero worthy of the REALMHAMMER itself.
Below are the first 50 challenges! We are not expecting anyone to complete them all, but kudos to those that try.
While most of these challenges are aimed at Age of Sigmar, there are some dedicated to other game systems. Throughout the year we may add to these, whether that's to cater to new releases or suggestions from the community. Don't let anything stop you from applying these challenges to alternate gaming systems.
When we refer to an "army", we typically mean a valid 2000 point sized force, but this is a hobby challenge so anything at Vanguard scale or higher (1000 points) will be sufficient :)
10/02/2021 UPDATE: The Leaderboard is now live - go check it out: https://facehammer.co.uk/realmhammer/leaderboard/.
03/02/2021 UPDATE: We've simplified the original "combo" mechanic to make it easier to combine challenges.
Any other challenges can be included in these.
Anything you’ve done for Bronze and Silver can be included in these challenges.
Anything painted from Bronze can be used in these challenges.
Try out some new techniques and finally get that warband painted!
For everything else. Want to dabble in some SPORTZ or try out all this space stuff - it’s go time.
Submissions will all happen through the Facehammer Discord, in the relevant channels. Get involved and get chatting.
Judges words are final - we don’t want anyone taking the piss to sit at the top of the leaderboard. This is a hobby challenge - you’re only cheating yourself.
Submitting and completing a challenge will be awarded with a challenge badge and a place on the leaderboard on Facehammer’s website.
Throughout the year we may choose to give out bonus “Hobby Hero/Judges Choice” challenge badges for things that are super cool.
At the end of the year we will award 2 things:
1. The most challenges completed.
2. The REALMHAMMER Hero. This will be for the hobby hero we deem has embraced and participated throughout the year, and is truly worthy of the REALMHAMMER award (it’ll be an actual hammer).
We're working on some exclusive merch, just for those participating in the challenge. What you can pick up will depend on how many challenge badges you’ve got. Stay tuned for more details. Suggestions welcome.
From everyone at Facehammer and RealmRift - good luck and have fun :)
