Woehammer Hobby Bingo 2023

I’m addition to our Hobby Golf for 2023, we’re also running a Hobby Bingo card this year. Slightly different to the Games Workshop one, as it does not specify any games systems, releasing you from the GW only theme.

And, for those interested. If you join our friendly Discord server and post your finished pictures inside the #hobbybingo channel I will update your Hobby card personally with your pictures.

Hopefully with our WoePoints and also other sites like Pile of Potential we’ll all be battling against the pile of grey in 2023.

WoePoints 2023

Keep thinking of tackling that hobby backlog? Then why not join in with Woehammer and take part in WoePoints this year.

As a form of hobby golf, you’ll get negative points for every model you paint or sell and positive points for those that you buy.

Each month we’ll highlight some of the models that have been painted in an article run-down.

How do you score points? All the points are listed below:

  • -1 for each infantry model painted or sold on base sizes up to and including 40mm.
  • -1 for each completed unit
  • -2 for each infantry model painted or sold on base sizes larger than 40mm.
  • -2 for each cavalry model painted or sold
  • -2 for character models painted or sold
  • -5 for each terrain piece painted or sold
  • -5 for each vehicle or monster painted or sold
  • -10 for each lord of war/God model painted or sold

You get positive points of the same value for each model of the type specified above that your bought. E.g. if you buy 10 infantry models on 32mm bases you will get +10 points.

As well as these points, you’ll also get +5 points for any pre-orders you make.

REMEMBER only purchases or models you have painted or sold in 2023 count towards your points. So painting your backlog counts as free points!

Any prizes?

No, this is just for fun and intended to help you reduce your pile of potential.

How do I record my points?

Good news! You can do that on our friendly Discord server. Just drop an pictures into the #WoePoints-2023 channel and a mod will update your points. You’ll then be able to check your pointd by typing !points.

It’s as simple as that!

Massive thank you to Ben Bailey of Dice and Ducks and GW fame for building our WoeBot to keep track of the points!

Introducing WoePoints

What are WoePoints

WoePoints are intended to be a fun and free point system to keep track of you backlog and to stop it getting out of control.

Scoring is carried out similar to Golf, with a lower score being better.

You lose points for each model you paint or sell, and gain them for purchasing more.

How is it Tracked?

You can either keep score yourself or join our friendly Discord server and use our WoeBot to keep track.

Special thanks to Ben Bailey from Dice and Ducks for building WoeBot! Check out Dice and Ducks when you next can, they bring you live battle reports on YouTube from wargaming events around the UK.

What are the Points?

Below is a list of all the Points you can earn. There are no prizes for this, and it is purely intended to be just a fun new feature for anyone who paints miniatures.

Points are stackable.

i.e. I paint 10 Intercessors and get -10 for painting 10 models then -2 for painting 2 units. I then sell them on ebay and get an additional -10 points. Bringing the total points for those Intercessors to -22 Points.

What’s Next?

They’ll be more functionality added to WoeBot in the coming months including:

  • Searching our website for faction/subfaction lists and returning you a list of articles they appear in.
  • Searching our Woehammer Player Ranking system
  • Requesting Datacards from our database.
  • And a whole lot more
