At the start of the challenge with three months of non-stop painting stretched out in-front of me, I had run all sorts of calculations to determine how many models I could paint if I just really applied myself... While I didn't reach any of the lofty targets I had set myself, I did complete a marvellous 53 miniatures and punched through my target of 500 pints. Most importantly, not only was I inspired to paint a lot more figures than I would of otherwise, I had great fun doing so!
Here are some shots of the rest of the models I managed to finish during the challenge.
|'Last of the Mohicans' - L'amour bonus theme|
|Milites Christi warlord for 'SAGA'|
|Kriegsmarine Kapitanleutnant - Naval bonus theme|
|Pony Express Rider - Risk-taker bonus theme|
|British Regulars for 'Muskets and Tomahawks'|
|Kriegsmarine squad for 'Bolt Action'|
|Group Shot - minus the Curtgeld|
|Next years models, already thoughtfully prepared... :)|
However, what I enjoyed most was being welcomed into, and participating in, the community that has been built up around the challenge. I can't recommend it enough to anyone wanting a little inspiration to break out their brushes, no matter their skill level.
Thanks Curt, and all my fellow challengers, for a fantastic three moths! Until next time...
