Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge VII - Overview


The picture above shows all the completed miniatures and vehicles ranging in scale from 6mm to 28mm from the AHPC VII.

Not seen here is almost the same again in figures that were prepared and undercoated for the challenge and never reached the painting table.

A great challenge from all and a lot learnt this time round as well.

Cheers for now

Back to the Brushes 128

A bit of a mixed bag here with a variety of work in progress pictures to show.


6mm figures from Rapier Miniatures for the extremely slow moving Greeks and Macedonians for ADG or whatever else takes the mood.


A return to Project S and the Sassanids in 28mm. Figures from Gripping Beast and some progress being made on a unit of archers for Basic Impetus or Impetus.



Next, two stands of javelin armed troops for a generic 15mm Arab style army for Basic Impetus. Have enough figures to create the core units for most Arab/Moor armies of the late Dark Ages and Crusades as long as you don't demand historical purity with the figures.


These figures have been passed on here so thought it only right to take them to the brush and colour them in. As with all 15mm figures the method of painting here is block and wash. Think the javelin armed troops are old Minifigs and know the archers below are Essex



A couple of stands of Confederates that needed dusting and then saw a little paint. The picture shows that they need a little more here and there too.


Lastly more Sassanids, Arab archers and 6mm pikes.

Hope that this is of interest to you all.

Cheers for now

C Beams Glitter in the Dark 5

These appear to have been missed after being shown in the AHPC VII, so catching up with them now.



Figures are Heavy Plasma cannons from Ground Zero Games New Israeli 15mm Marines range. As with all of this range they are well sculpted and paint well.



Hoping to start showing some new work progress in the near future.

Cheers for now

Fantasy Heroes 4

Painted back in the first quarter of this year, here is the bulk of a Hordes of the Things Undead army from Alternative Armies. Nice figures that are very easy to paint and capture the fell nature of the army well.

The  whole force

Skeleton Hordes




Wights and Ghouls





Bone chucker




Hoping to get some work in progress pictures posted over the next few days.

Cheers for now.

Fury of the North 19

Been having a period of low hobby motivation over the last month with added issues from back pain that is not enabling long periods of sitting for painting.

Here are some pictures from the end of the VII Analogue Painting Challenge and Penda the Last Saxon King



Figures from Gripping Beast's Germanic Tribes/Saxon range and are full of Dark Age character. Only the lead figure was painted here as this was a part of the challenge to paint as a team; in this case with Russ G


Hopefully will be able to start spending sometime on the hobby over the next few months as the lead mountain won't be scaled any other way.

Cheers for now
