Progress continues to be made, albeit painfully slowly. All the composite parts for the final bonus round, aptly titled, 'Last Stand' are complete and whilst perhaps not as grand as I had hoped it will see me complete for of my personal targets of entering something for each of the these themed rounds. The 2nd Punjab Cavalry have had their mounts painted, but still an awful lot of work to be done. The Matabele warriors are still proving a bane insomuch as I just don't seem to be able to drum up the enthusiasm to get them finished.
With 'The Fourth Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge' entering its final fortnight, I have just realised, somewhat alarmingly, that I will lose a day's painting next Saturday due to work. The plan, so that it is, will be to try and complete all those units started, but just in case I have a purple patch of production, I have promoted some Imperial Infantry to the painting table.
I might not be entering this bonus round...... so I wish you well. Good luck and all that sort of thing.ReplyDelete
Thank you Clint, and the very best of luck to you too - not long now!Delete
Interest to see the the entry for the last stand..and the Punjab cavalry . It's going to be a busy few weeks all round by the look of it..ReplyDelete
So much to do so little time, but the final stand is safely delivered!Delete
Muy buena esa mesa de pintura
Me gusta esa escena con la escalera
Ala espera de mas
Thank you J.D. all completed now, I should be able to display it next weekend.Delete
I have the same issue with Zulus. You imagine they will be quick to paint and actually a disproportionate time is spent on things like shields (they take me ages) and spotted cat fur decorations etc.ReplyDelete
I couldn't agree more! Managed a bit more today, but my word progress is slow!Delete
Very organized painting area and projects, Michael. Your quality and output are also impressive. I like that paint bottle holder - I use Vallejo too, and always worry about the paint settling separating. Looking for to the "Last Stand," DeanReplyDelete
Thank you Dean, I'm trying out storing the colours upside down after it was suggested to me that this helps to keep the colours mixed - seems to be working so far.Delete
Have the Punjabi cavalry conclaved and sent you their uniform requirements?ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing you and Edwin K both do that Gordon vignette. Double the fun, double the Gordons.
I'll have to do something to make mine different - perhaps giving Gordo a Hodgkiss...Delete
You can never have enough Gordons. Or Burnabys for that matter!Delete
Yes, the Punjabis have decided on a rather fetching scarlet for their alkalak, and a Double Gordons - thank you very much Sir!Delete
Great looking staircase there MichaelReplyDelete
I shall hopefully have something on it soon!Delete
Looking at the staircase, I'm reminded of Gordon but whatever you turn out good luck with it.ReplyDelete
General Gordon is certainly scheduled to make an appearance.Delete
waiting for more.
Shouldn't be long now Luca and thank you.Delete
And the paint table marches on. Nice work.ReplyDelete
Thank you Jay, just get on though.Delete
"Bannisters, people, BANNISTERS! Someone could get killed on these stairs!"ReplyDelete
I look forward to seeing that last stand, Mr Awdry!
I understand that 'Health & Safety' are due to make their final inspection later this week - after that anything goes.Delete
Those stairs look like "Chinese" Gordon may make his last stand on them....ReplyDelete
I understand that he is planning to make an appearance later in the week. ;)Delete
I know what it is lol. Btw the paint work on those horses are amazing and I can not wait to see the rest of the Punjabi cavalry finished.ReplyDelete
Thank you Pete, just got to keep plugging away!Delete
I am struggling with this bonus and could well fail to hit the targetReplyDelete
You still have a week to go old sport, plenty of time to rustle something up.Delete
Looks very interesting, Michael.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to see them next week.
And me yours, we only have one to go Stefan and our side challenge is complete.Delete
