What a blast!

Well, the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge VI is over...

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 

'Curtgeld' 

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...

Cheers,

Steve
