Yesterday Curt posted a mammoth gallery page of all the entries for the first fortnightly bonus theme. There were forty of the Challengers who had made submissions. Every entry was very different and all were wonderful to see.
My entry was a medieval picnic scene which will be the camp for my Swiss army. This netted me 16 points for the scene plus the 50 theme bonus points, taking my total to 114 and putting me in 12th place.
As Seb correctly guessed yesterday, the project I'm working on for a rapid pre-Christmas submission is my Swiss halberdiers. I did manage to finish painting them last night, but too late to base them as well. I finished basing them a few minutes ago and I'm just waiting for the basing gunk to dry. This evening I should be able to complete the basing.
Here's a pic I took of them last night just before I did the Klear/ink coat:
These will give me a very welcome boost to my points total as I take a break from painting for a few days.
- London, United Kingdom, United Kingdom
- A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).
