Challenge V: The Gathering Clouds

The world famous (at least in are little circles) fifth version of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge has been announced.  This has become my favorite hobby event and seems to drive a big increase in my painting productivity.

This years fifth challenge (cleverly referred to as "V" - must have engaged a media consulting firm for that) runs from December 5th 2014 through March 20th, 2015.  Yes that's right - we've got 105 days of painting madness.  Curt has rightly scheduled the event to conclude right at the beginning of sailing season here on the Chesapeake - I commend him for such a gracious and just decision.

The month of November will be filled with frantic planning sessions, painting desk logistical reviews and resupply missions, figure prep and priming, oh lots of priming.  I may even create a photo booth to take better pictures of my little creations.

I wish "bon chance" to both my fellow "Challenge 5.0" participants as well as anyone brave enough to observe this madness

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your paint brushes!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I had planned on sitting this one out but was so tempted by Curt's invitation that ... well, weak is what I am.

Looking forward to seeing what you paint as it'll hopefully gee me up to crack on with my target; a paltry 500pts admittedly :-)
