OK, so I'm back home from my Xmas break with family, well fed, not too badly rested and finally starting to warm up properly. Yes, the central heating part of my boiler decided to play silly bleeders while I was away. All sorted now, but it's taken nearly 6 hours for my flat to come up to a tolerable temperature. Luckily, I've got a fan heater in my living room which has been on full blast making that room warm up quicker so I have been able to do some painting.
I've got a couple more steps to do, then my warrior monks will be ready for submission to the Challenge. If I am lucky, I might just be able to get the post done in time for my slot today. Yes, that does mean that I actually managed to get some painting done while I was away. Not as much as I'd have liked, perhaps, but more than I expected.
While I was away, I've managed to slip from 3rd to 5th place on the table. There's no way I'll make it back up there as the top three are burning through brushes and paint at a rate of knots. It was nice to be up there though, even if it was just for a few days.
I did get one entry submitted before I went away, and Curt posted it a short while ago. Take a look.
So, a quick WIP shot of the warrior monks whilst they are still WIP:
So, what's up next? I guess the two regiments of Seven Years War Russian grenadiers would make the most sense.
I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas.
