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'll also get a special 'Challenge Completed' sticker when you earn either of the 'Finish' stamps!


Share some shots of finished and work-in-progress minis on our C2A Discord and we will share some on social media.  Our in-store and online communities' 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!

One of the first things you should do to participate is join our Call to Arms Discord server!

Before you start to paint be sure to snap a picture of your unpainted miniatures (assembled and primed is okay) and post it to the server (or via our store email, or FB Messenger if you don't want to use Discord).

To earn the stamps with the Discord logo on them, simply post  picture of the completed goal to the server, and next time you're in ask for the stamp - that way we can see you've finished the task!

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 may 25th, 2024 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 2024 you can still earn MOST of the reward (as much as nine stamps in fact!)
