They're off!

Well the Analogue challenge has started and I have yet to apply the first brush stroke. But It will happen as soon as I stop typing.

You are reminded that the Painting challenge is all about stamina and endurance. And many people suffer burnout at OR even before the end!

Personally this year I will be starting slowly. How you tackle it is up to you and as long as you have fun then it was right for you.

But the challenge has started at 6am this Sunday Morning GMT and will last for 3 months.

I have a few things on the painting table all ready to go. I have done some research to get the markings right and the colours correct. I know that it will not be enough and that I will need to do more before the challenge ends.

But I will be starting with some "Modern" wargaming but I can honestly say I have no idea what I will be painting by the end of the challenge.

If you want to follow the challenge It can be found here! Good luck to everyone involved.

  1. Best of luck Clint. You're spot on about this being being a marathon, not a sprint. Got badly burnt out last time round after a month or so... This year I hope to more evenly pace myself. Looking forward to seeing your Moderns :-)

  10. My first reaction was "Well put 'em on again", but I blamed my medication and swiftly realised the title related to the upcoming painting challenge - good luck Clint and as someone once said "slow but steady wins the race".

    1. Thanks Joe. When I did a google search for images under the title "They're off!" I was expecting more smut. I am delighted there was not much at all. So maybe I should increase my medication as well.

  11. Looking forward to seeing what you get done.. and hopefully I can keep the marathon mentality, as right now I am in sprint mode ( more to come soon ;) ).

    1. Thanks Kyle. Some people stay in sprint mode for 3 months then do nothing afterwards. It is whatever works best for the individual. Me I am struggling to get going.
