About Me

My photo
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).

Challenge Round-Up

***Warning - Lots and Lots and Lots of Pics!!!***

Now that I've had a chance to recover from the trials and tribulations of 15 weeks of the 5th Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, it is probably the right time to do a round-up of everything that I submitted.

After my previous two Challenges, I posted every entry in the order that I submitted them. I've decided to do something different this time and group the posts according to themes. I'll go with a historical order.

**Edit: I've added links to the posts on the Challenge blog for each entry**

28mm Wars of the Roses

Entry 14 - Retinue Archers (300 points)

This entry is the beginning of my 28mm WotR army for FoG. Sixty bowmen.

I managed to add a fair few units to my Choson Korean army this year.

Entry 4 - Righteous Army Command (11 points)

Entry 5 - Warrior Monks (107 points)

Entry 21 - Soldiers and Archers (144 points)

15mm Thirty Years War

Just the one unit this year!

Entry 19 - "Yellow" Foot Regiment (64 points)

15mm Seven Years War Russians

I managed to surprise myself with the speed and quality that I painted these up. Not to mention the fact that I actually completed an army (albeit a relatively small starter army).

There was also the added trouble of hand-painting the cast-on flags - I managed to produce a reasonable impression of the actual flags.

Entry 1 - Zeltiy and Slobodskiy Hussars (72 points)

And a picture of the whole army:

Entry 12 - Eight Infantry Regiments (120 points)

Entry 15 - Cavalry and Command Point Markers (83 points)

Entry 16 - Artillery and Four Infantry Regiments (104 points)
