Over the last few days I've been working away on some 20mm modern Bundeswehr figures by Elhiem and terrain for a middle eastern, or more probably Afghanistan, setting.
While most of the terrain is still far from presentable my first Fallschirmjägergruppe is ready for combat.
this years Challenge slowly coming to a close I'm rather proud to have
reached my personal target. With this submission I've surpassed the goal
of 80 painted miniatures I set for myself by 6. This means I've already
painted 25 miniatures more than last year (61 + 1 AFV) and still there
are two weeks to go. But
don't expect me to do much more for the last few days. I'm trying to
avoid the 'painters burn out' I suffered from last year and therefore
will be reducing my output drastically.
still recovering from a nasty flu which knocked me out for over a week.
While being quite pleased with my progress over the Challenge so far I
find it always rather hard to get the juices flowing again once I hit
the proverbial wall.
First of all my apologies for not having commented on your blogs lately. A nasty flu has knocked me out cold and while I was following your progress I simply didn't feel like trying to make 'clever' sounding comments while the eyes hurt and the head spun.
But the flu has ebbed away and I'm back at the brushes again and I'll comment on your blogs again like the complete smart ass I am ;-)
Furthermore I haven't posted my latest progress on the challenge so here's my last submission:
still adding to my Blitzkrieg Germans and this week saw me finishing
two more Support Weapons teams and some HQ selections. All figures are
Warlord Games again. Beeing metal figures they originally feature heads
from Warlords 'Seperate Head System' but as I didn't like them, due to
their over exaggerated facial expressions, I used left overs from my
plastic Blitzkrieg Germans.
The latest Bonus Round of this years Painting Challenge is in full swing. This time it's all about 'Myth'. To make sure you don't miss out on many fantastic interpretations of the topic make sure you head over and cast your votes. The poll is only open till sunday so no time for hesitation!
Curt has changed his way of publishing the submissions so now you can comment on each individual entry if you wish so.
really a points bomb the scale of some of you guys are capable of but
for me it comes pretty close. This week I was lucky to have had some spare time and so I got some figures done. First is a 28mm PaK 36 for my early WWII Germans.
