Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge VII: The Plan

Given the scope of the Challenge effort, I find it helpful to plan it out with a spreadsheet just to make sure I've got all the figures I need.  The fact that chicks dig guys with spreadsheets is just a happy coincidence.

The red line is my current plan, which totals just under 2,300 points for AHPC-VII.  That's a good bit lower than the previous two years but still respectable output.  As with past challenges this years effort will be focused on both figures and terrain for my upcoming Historicon game.

I'll also be helping Curt out as a minion by keeping track of the whole event in a spreadsheet (Hey, Ladies....) and providing insightful and stimulating statistical commentary.  If you thought Algebra class was boring in High School, well you 'aint seen nothing yet!

Last years point total of 3,306 will be hard to beat - it represents painting 46, 28mm infantry figures a week for 13 weeks.  Thats a lot of figures but we shall see how this year plays out.

Thats is a remarkable plan by any strecth - I'm going for a PB myself, but its on much more modest numbers than yours. What is important is that the Spreadsheet is King! All Hail the Spreadsheet, bringer of wisdom, maker of Success!

When a chap from the finance industry tells you that chicks dig a man with spreadsheets, you know it must be too good to be true. Just remember Ponzi and Madoff ;)

It sounds like you have a plan Miles - here's to making it to your target :)

Your starting total in week one is my target for the whole campaign! I'd need a very cunning plan (and possibly a time machine) to match your output.

You had me at "spreadsheet" Miles.
Cheers, Peter

I'm sure a man of your talents can mange 50+ 28mm figures Miles?

Falling into depression: how can you achieve in 1 week as many points as I'm planning to do (and will likely fail) in the whole Challenge?

Good to have a plan.... Now we really need a something audio visual as well

Thanks for the comments - I'm afraid they'll be no videos of me painting - not the most exciting of topics

Don't worry everybody I have great plans for Minion Miles this year.

Let's see what happens to his spreadsheet once it makes contact with the Enemy. Mwahaaha!
