Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge V Comes to an End
I also want to thank all the participants who make being part of the undertaking so much fun. The only thing that rivals the groups astonishing painting skills is their class - to be honest I'm surprised the let someone like me into the club.
I was very pleased with how the Challenge worked out for me - I managed to end up tied for third place with Mr Millsy with 3,204 points each, which was a cool 800 points over my internal target of 2,404. For those of you not familiar with the scoring (most of you!) one earns 5 points for a painted 28mm infantry figures - awards move up and down from there base on scale, type etc. 3,404 points equates to painting and basing 640 28mm infantry figures in 3 months.
I'll post a group shot of my output shortly.
In terms of projects completed heres a distribution of the points earned
28mm WW2 (DAK, Brits & US Marines) 1,399 / 44%
All Quiet on the Martian Front 440 / 14%
6mm Arab / Israeli Wars 337 / 11%
15mm Flames of War 278 / 9%
1/600 ACW Naval 259 / 8%
28mm Napoleonic 231 / 7%
28mm Colonial 170 / 5%
28mm ACW 60 / 2%
1/1200 Napoleonic Naval 30 / 1%
I did manage to finish of the fleets I need for the ACW naval game I'll be putting on at Historicon so thats another big plus.
I think it's time to work on some scenery!
