Those familiar with Redoubt’s miniatures will hopefully understand what I mean about them being reassuringly chunky. Certainly not the most anatomically correct sculpts by today’s standard, but for some reason I thoroughly enjoy painting them. I have often wondered if it has something to do with the lack of extraneous detail that allows the painter to put their own stamp of the miniature that appeals to me, but whatever the reason I can honestly say that I am a great fan of them.
The addition of the officer with his sighting quadrant saw me through my one thousand point target score – albeit by the skin of my teeth. If truth be told this accomplishment had more to do with the very generous votes my entries to the bonus rounds secured rather than the number of miniatures That I actually painted. The Challenge proved to be a much needed escape to what was a particularly difficult year and I was once again thrilled to be involved - roll on December when it all starts again!
