The coureurs and guns have gained me 72 points, putting me into 6th place. The skeletons will get me another 48 points and then there are the points for my Villain to come later on as well.
I've taken things a bit easier today and restricted myself to finishing the skeletons, continuing with the NSL heavy carrier and doing some initial steps on another 15mm project - a set of 6 limber teams for my 30 Years War army. So far I've just done some of the basecoats, but will continue working on them alongside the NSL ships.
The Villain bonus theme should be posted a bit later on by Curt and my entry for that round will be revealed. As it will be the prize in my 2nd Blogday draw, my post tomorrow will be the Prize Draw.
Edit: They're up. Head on over, drool at the lovely figures and don't forget to vote!
I'll be scheduling it as I will be going straight to the club from work to play the first of my three games in the club's 30 Years War tournament. Go Danish!
28mm Coureurs de Bois
Lots of pics coming up!
These 8 French Canadian backwoodsmen gained me 32 points (I dropped 1 point per figure as they aren't based - Loki is going to be basing them all). They are my painting contribution for the Bloggers for Charity event.
These were painted over black primer drybrushed with white to provide some pre-highlighting. As the figures were all the same pose, I decided to use a wide range of colours to make every figure different. It also made for some confusion on my part when I went to do the final highlighting. It might have been better if I'd done them before I gave the figures a wash of brown ink - a lesson learned for next time!
I still haven't mastered the art of painting eyes, so I've just done the iris colour and ignored the whites. I have remembered one lesson I learned after painting my Norman Dux a couple of months ago - seal with Klear on its own rather than mixed with ink as the ink mix is very good at hiding all the effort put into the highlighting.
