Just a quick update on the Swiss handgunners and crossbowmen. I finished painting them last night and gave them their Klear/ink coat. This evening, after popping along to the club for a chat and to hand over some Viking sprues to someone there, I did the basing. Tomorrow evening when I get home from work will be a frantic session to get the gunk dry-brushed, spray them with matt varnish, add tufts and flock them in time to photograph them and send them in as my 15th and final entry in the Challenge.
From the sounds of Ian's birthday post he's going to be submitting something else so will knock me down a place on the table.
And then there are the great bromantics - Fran and Ray - to take into account. Fran hasn't submitted anything for a couple of weeks now, so he's clearly been working on another big batch of figures. Ray has submitted a number of smaller entries over the last couple of weeks, but we all suspect he's going to clobber us all with a repeat of last year's sandbagging.
This all means that the best I can hope for is to finish in 6th place, although Ray could drop me to 7th if he is sandbagging.
Anyway, here's a WIP pic of the skirmishers:
