Build Your Army - Every so often a glorious moment happens at Black Knight Games - we  will put together a Call to Arms Army Building Challenge!  During these events we call on players to build a fresh army for specific game(s) from scratch all at the same time, with a specific deadline in mind.

We offer up fun incentives, to keep you going, and many consider it to be some of the best motivation to get painting there is!

And the best part is when it's over we have a community full of brand new armies and enthusiastic players!
  • Your choice of 8 different game systems!
    Build the big army game you love!
  • Participants will get a rewards card that
    will give stamps for accomplishing goals.
  • There is an entry fee of $20
    Free if you spend $150+ on the army!
  • You can earn up to $50 in credit.
    Bet on Yourself!
  • There'll be plenty of staff participation.
    Tell us about your army!
  • ARMIES must start off unpainted,
    participants should share proof of this.
  • ARMIES have goal of a certain point value.
    Different systems have different totals.



Sometimes a little motivation is all we need to really get cracking on a hobby project - this gives you loads of motivation!


You will get an Army Collector Card with spots for 10 stamps.  You can earn these stamps by accomplishing the objective.  Trade in your card and get $5 in store credit for every stamp!


You can send in some shots of finished and work-in-progress minis for us to share on social media.  Our in-store and online communitites are excellent resources for encouragement and suggestions too - it's fun to have people behind you!


We always end our Call to Arms with a party for everyone to hang out and show off what they've done!  You do not have to be 'done' to attend, but we sure hope you will be!

It's a great event where people can showcase their armies, get some games in if they like, eat some snacks, and just feel good about their accomplishments!  We always also have some kind of prizes for some of the best presentations in the Call to Arms!


Depending on which game system you choose your 'Finish an Army' goals are slightly different - below are the eight game systems that are included in this Call to Arms.  Finish assembling and painting (and basing) a legal army for one of these games to accomplish the goal!

Before you start to paint be sure to snap a picture of your unpainted miniatures (assembled and primed is okay) and send it to us in-person, via our store email, or FB Messenger.

You are able to redeem the card at any point and you will get $5.00 in Black Knight Games store credit for each stamp you completed.  Cards do not have to be complete to redeem - but once redeemed you can't earn more.

'The deadline' is the main goal of the challenge: get an army done by Sunday, May 7th 2023 and you will earn the tenth stamp on the card.

However if you miss the deadline but still finish the army by the end of 2023 you can still earn MOST of the reward (as much as nine stamps in fact!)
