It's that time of year when we wargaming bloggers check to see if Mr Campbell has lost his sanity again and decided to run the sadomasochistic exercise known as the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge for another year.
I'm pleased (I said it was sadomasochistic) to confirm that he has indeed lost his marbles once more and the Challenge will run for it's fifth outing, starting on 5th December and finishing on 20th March.
This year the theme (primarily for purposes of the entry "fee") is "Anti-Heroes, Rogues and Ruffians". As with last year's outing there will also be fortnightly bonus theme rounds.
I've signed up for my third outing, with a target of 1500 points. My main reason for signing up is that I hope it will give me the kick I need to get on with painting. I'll probably skip the bonus theme rounds unless they happily coincide with what I'm painting at the time.
My main focus this year will be to get my Seven Years War Russians and my 6mm ACW armies painted. Once they are done I might make a start on my War of the Roses army. To inject a bit of variety, there may also be some fantasy and SciFi submissions scattered among the main works. And definitely some spaceships. There have to be spaceships.
If you fancy joining in, pop on over and sign up in the comments of this post on Curt's blog.
(and I will get around to writing the ADLG AAR - promise)
