The Painting Challenge has been over for nearly a month now and I'm trying to get back into the brush-swinging habit - this should be made somewhat easier by the return of winter to the Prairies but I'm having to work at it... anyway I thought I'd try to get myself back into the spirit by posting some of my last Challenge models here as well. Away we go...
From the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge Blog:
Having completed the Chambers of Challenge and offered tribute at the Altar of the Snowlord, all that remains is to post the last few models completed before the end of the Challenge. First up is this Hobgoblin Chieftain on Dire Wolf, from Games Workshop's old Warhammer Fantasy Battles range."creative reimagining" of battle reports we posted on our blog.15 SKULLS on this model alone! Must be some kinda record...?Warriors of the Dead. The King is a metal model which arrived yesterday from an eBay transaction. It was new in the blister, having originally accompanied an issue of the Eaglemoss "LotR" collector's magazine.
I also posted a wrap-up of my Challenge models on the Challenge blog:
Well, here we are at the end of the Challenge. I'd set myself a modest goal of 500 points which I ended up more than doubling. Still, it wasn't *quite* enough to get me into the top 25 - my good friend Greg pipped me by a mere 6 points! In any event, here's the breakdown of my Challenge production:
- 28mm foot: 75
- 28mm mounted: 3
- 28mm large figures/monsters: 5
- 28mm artillery pieces: 1
- 28mm tanks: 1
- 28mm landing craft: 1
- 28mm furniture/terrain: 12
- 20mm foot: 2
- 20mm cars: 1
- 20mm tanks: 1
- 15mm tanks: 3
- 10mm Titans: 1
I just want to end this post by again thanking Mr. Curt and all of his Minions for running the Challenge for all of us, and also to Lady Sarah and the Minions' other halves for their forbearance and tolerance of the time Curt and the Minions spend on it. Thanks also to my fellow Challengers for the kind words you posted about my work.
See you at the bar...!
So that's it... I promise I'm going to try to get some models painted... I have an idea what I'm going to do (and I've even finished the conversions and gotten them primed) and I promise you it will be like nothing you've ever seen on the blog...!
