Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge V: Week 1 Report

 Week 1 of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge V is "in-the-books" and my progress was more or line with plan with 4 submissions totaling 147 points vs a plan of 129.  Of course there was some variation is what was actually done but more on that in a later post.  The submissions themselves are a bit of an eclectic mix:

 First up is a unit of US Mobile Artillery for All Quiet on the Martian Front.  This is a really fun unit to play and the models are based on the basic Steam Tank plastics with metal parts for the gun cabin and barrel.  Both fun and easy to paint up.

 Next was a US 105mm Artillery unit from Battlefront for Flames of War (15mm).  We all can use more US artillery in that game!!

 The third submission is the HMS Hector - a 1/600 scale British Ironclad that will be used at my upcoming Historicon Game in 2015.  The model is essentially scratch built as the hull casting I purchased was really bad.  It may not be the most detailed of models but she'll do well on the table top.  The masts are plastic rod and the sails are made of greenstuff.  I went a bit oversized on the mast/spar dimensions to ensure durability when used for gaming.

The fourth and last submission of the week is a 28mm Scaled Rolls Royce Armored car from Trenchworx - this model rocks - go out and buy one!!!!

That's a mighty fine looking graph mate. HMS Hector is a wonderful piece of work and I'm looking forward to seeing more of these.

You're steaming ahead in the naval race duel, but I shall be registered as afloat come next Friday!

I'm also working on 1/600 vessels.
