I'm so in!



It's time to bite the bullet and enter Curt's painting competition I've set myself the goal of 500 points, which after a fairly unproductive year should get me back on track with reducing the lead pile. Although let's face it, I'll just buy more figures specially for the painting comp. Don't tell the Duchess.

To make it more interesting, and at the risk of turning out like Ray and Fran, I've challenged Man Cave Paul to a duel. He's down for 500 points as well, but let's see who can paint the most. We've decided to put a wager on it, but haven't decided on the stakes.

We're open to suggestions.....

    1. BTW Panting challenge or no, you still have to hand paint all your shields - no decals!

  9. Winner takes all!! Ohh, that sounds a bit too scary. You want to end the Challenge as friends, right? A future dice re-roll per point spread?

    It's great to have you lads along for the fun!

  10. That is 250 15mm minis, nice challenge, Alan, what about painting an objective or baggage item that suits bolt action or saga that and a nice bottle of vino for the duel winner!
