Well, we are now a full sixty percent of the way through this year's Challenge and it looks as though I am on course to beat my output of both my previous Challenges (individually, not jointly - I'm not one of those nutters at the very top of the table!).
There's just a little bit of work to do on the second batch of archers before they finished painting - metal highlights and details. And varnishing of course. I'll be doing that after this post, before I go to bed.
Tomorrow, I'll be sticking the figures onto bases and adding basing gunk, then Saturday should see them finished off. That will put me on 1698 points; that's 26 points (13 x 15mm/5.2 x 28mm foot) painted per day, 183 points (91 x 15mm/36.5 x 28mm foot) per week.
Phew! It's exhausting just thinking about it!
Once this submission is out of the way, I'll be slowing down a bit. I've still got two side-bets on the go - the teeny-tiny beggars against Alan and Curt; and the spaceships challenge with Clint. I think next week may see me try to knock out 8 more bases of 6mm ACW, then the following week I'll aim to paint up the ESU space fleet.
I've placed a couple more orders this evening. The first was for a bunch of Model Air paints and some 17ml bottles of different coloured Vallejo surface primer. The second was with Figures in Comfort for a couple of pluck-foam trays (for spaceships), some tokens to use with Gruntz (to mark some things which aren't covered by the standard tokens) and a couple of acrylic templates.
