Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge: Prep Work has begun
So mostly I'm focusing on cleaning up figures, glueing them to their bases and the brushing on primer. All of the figures on the workbench are from Reaper or the Frostgrave line with any metal figures already covered in thinned Panzer Grey primer from Vallejo. The instructions for the plastic Reaper figures indicate no priming is needed. I'm still a but dubious about that, but it seemed to go well for the two gentlemen in the back by the large bottle of Liquitex Matt Medium.
As for this years Challenge, I haven't figured out what my goal is and doubt I can muster the energy to beat last years tally of 3,306 points. At 5 points per painted 28mm infantry figure, that works out to 661 figures painted in 3 months. Of course, my point tally is buttressed by 300 or so points from the various bonus themes but I'll still go with the the self-aggrandizing implication.
I think this year I'll go for quality rather than quantity - we'll see how it goes. If Curt will have me, I'll still do the riveting mathemagical updates.
I do hope Mr O'Grady is up for a nautical challenge of some kind - I shall leave the choice of subject to him.....
Back to figure prep.
