AHPC7 - Challenge Day 13 & Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone - wishing you a safe, successful and enjoyable 2017!

Today marks the 5th birthday of this blog. I will be doing a prize draw to celebrate at some point to mark the blogiversary and passing through the 750k hits mark, but I'm holding off until a third milestone is reached - 1000 posts. Don't worry, it should come around fairly quickly if I'm posting daily.

After posting last night, I cracked on and finished the batch of Nubians that I was working on:

26 clubmen

These chaps will form the bulk of the "elite fanatic warriors" for the army, with a few chaps from the next batch and some command figures.

Today has been very productive and I've motored through the third batch and finished them a short while ago:

46 spearmen/javelinmen

Some of these will go to the "elite fanatic warriors", the rest will be either LMI or LI javelinmen.

Here's a pic of everything that's been painted so far:

And one of everything that's left to paint:

92 down, 132 to go...

This lot will be the next batch to be painted:

48 bowmen

I'll be making a start on them later tonight.

In the meantime, I've almost finished prepping the Sea Peoples figures - just 36 left to do, which I hope to get done this evening while watching TV.

Once again, Happy New Year folks!!


  1. Well done and the sea peoples getting prepped too. Can't wait.

  2. Looks like I can post on your blog again??? Great looking figures and hope you have a fantastic 2017!!

  3. Happy 2017 Tasmin. Those Nubians are coming along very nicely. I look forward to seeing them based up as an army. Are they Old Glory 15's?

  4. Happy new year.



  5. Happy New Year and Blogiversary!

  6. Happy anniversary. And, may I just say, I'm blown away by those shields.

  7. Here's to a cracking 2017 to you!
