I have yet to be officially accepted but as I had some fun last year I thought that I should try again. It really is a huge amount of work for Curt as well as his wife and I really do appreciate it. If I am not accepted this year
The Challenge starts on 5th December (12:01 AM cst). ends at 12:01 Central standard time 20th March 2015. I really did have a Huge amount of enjoyment doing this last year and am now looking forward to it immensely.
The Target.I am setting a target for myself of 1250 points. And for me that is a lot of points. Higher than last years target as I do want to push myself hard this time. No resting on laurels and I want to wear a brush or two out.
The Hard WayI am calling it the hard way as I am not accepting any bonus points from the fortnightly bonus rounds. If I entered each of the bonus rounds I could accept extra points each fortnight. But last year while they were fun I am shirking that part of the challenge. I found them a distraction from the real endeavour of painting figures. If by chance I finish something that coincides with a themed bonus round I will delay sending it to Curt just long enough not to be in the bonus round. While this may sound to some of you like some self flagellation I feel it is important to set some rules and then FOLLOW them.
The Hit ListOk so what have I got lined up ready to paint? Well I have the following that I want to get done.
- 10mm Zulus. (Newline design and Pendraken mixture)
- 15mm Sci Fi (Brigade)
- 15mm Sci fi (GZG)
- Full thrust ships (GZG)
- 28mm British 25 lbs (West Wind I think)
- Possibly a 15mm Ancient army (Magister Militum) Destined for eBay I think.
- 28mm Medieval peasants (make unknown)
- Anything else that takes my fancy! Really could be anything!
The Above list is not restrictive, I may get some 10mm WW2 or some 6mm Arab Israeli wars stuff or even paint up a blood bowl team. At this stage the only Definite are the first 2 things on the list. As I have a hankering for Zulus!
The Rest of it!If anyone comes up with a good suggestion for an anti hero they would like to see don't be shy and let me know. No Guarantees I will get it done, but nothing lost by suggesting it!
I think I came 14th last year, so I do not expect or intend to get in the top ten. (Without them all having some kind of accident, which I would not wish on them.). Yes I would like to come 1st but as I have my feet on the ground I had better take my head out of the clouds.
So good luck to you all. Thanks for looking and take good care of yourselves!
All the best Clint
