All Hell Let Loose 14

The first painted WW2 vehicles in over a year and hopefully not the last this year.  All three vehicles come from Britannia Miniatures - now Grubby Tanks - and have painted well. 

Shown below from left to right there is:
  • SDKFZ 140 Flakpanzer 38(t)
  • PZKW III J with short 50mm barrell
  • PZWK II (f) - Luchs

More work in progress and finished items to follow shortly.

Cheers for now

Back to the Brushes 156

So the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge has finished for another year and 76 hobbyists have put down their brushes for a while. 

Below are the finished figures and models for this years challenge totalling 306 points just 6 points more than the Challenge Target for the year. Overall a 2% increase in productivity.

Personal favourite for this year's challenge goes to the Pz MKIII shown top left below. 

The Undead Hordes can rest uneasily for a few more aeons although there will be some small additions in the coming months. 

The Lead Mountain thrives in preparation for next year's challenge with the addition of some of Aly Morrison's DL2 Hobgoblins and a random Undead figure in 25/28mm. More on these to follow in the near future too. Some of the unfinished items in the background too.

A beginning is a very difficult time and as one challenge ends so another begins, this one being to maintain a good motivation for painting post challenge. 

Cheers for now.

Cheers for now

Back to the Brushes 155

As this years painting challenge draws near to completion so do the three pieces of WW2 German armour that will be a part of my final submission.

20mm WW2 vehicles have become a constant part of the challenge submission as this the seventh that I have been involved with draws to a close. Next year it will probably be on to the desert war if any 20mm WW2 is included in the challenge for 2018-19

There are also a couple of Ninja's, three undead 15mm's and up to 8 Romano Brits not shown.

Some more completed figures to follow shortly and the last rush for the challenge end date.

Cheers for now

 The cutting edge of the army - Heavy Foot protected blades

More work in progress to follow shortly

Cheers for now
