Challenge Day 22 - Rounding Up The Week

Gosh, what a busy week this has been. The Aztecs were submitted yesterday and posted here. I'm not sure what went wrong with the pics; I thought I'd got the lighting sorted out. I'll have to have a play with the camera on Thursday evening to see what settings work best.

I've spent most of this weekend working on the 6mm Rebs. Yesterday I got the belts finished and the breadbags painted. Today I've done the water canteens and the blanket rolls and made a start on touching up the jackets and trousers; just the greys left to do and some faces. That will leave the drums and some metal bits to do and they're finished!

On Saturday morning I also added basing gunk to the Aztecs and animals I'd mounted on washers the night before.

This morning Curt posted the poll results for the Nostalgia bonus theme round. Much to my surprise my entry, "Millsy the GIMP" had taken second place.

Even more amazingly, in third place was Millsy the GIMP with his entry "Ethel and the Fire Brigade"

Much less surprisingly, first place went to the highly talented and creative Michael Awdry (Baron of Vignette) for his "The Great Escape" piece.

Truly superb work by his lordship and a very well deserved win.


  1. Dear Tamsin,

    All this said, I have but one question: are you having fun? I hope that you have a tremendous new year, roll well all year, win many battles with miniature soldiers and have great health with which to enjoy it all!
    All the best,

  2. Three excellent enteries amoungst a whole load of very good enteries. well done

  3. Congrats on the second place and the great progress to date. I've yet to put pigment on anything and only just reclaimed my paints yesterday from my Dad's shed where they have been for 18 months!

  4. I'm pleased I was able to do myself out of second place by assisting you with your own endeavours :-)

  5. Congratulations Tamsin, well earned

  6. Great and well deserved place in the bonus round.

    Those Rebels are looking good


  7. @ Jerry - I most certainly am having fun (even despite the tedium of painting 616 x 6mm Confederate infantry!).
    Thanks for your wishes for the coming year :)

    @ Dannoc - there were some fabulous entries for this theme round :)

    @ Paul O'G - I'm sure you'll be up and running with the painting very quickly. Glad to hear you made it home safe and sound :)

    @ Millsy - thanks for obliging! :)

    @ Francis - cheers big fella :)

    @ Phyllion - thanks! :)

    @ Ian - cheers! I was rather surprised to come 2nd, but people obviously liked the humour and the creative work that it took to produce :)
