The Painting Challenge, a Week and a Bit In

Thanks to Paul for the festive message! Sorry it's a bit small.

I'm really enjoying taking part in Curt's painting challenge, and this week has seen a feverish production schedule to try to keep pace with Paul's output. At the time of writing I'm in 9th place overall with 156 points, just maintaining a narrow lead over Paul. I'll be away for a week or so after Christmas, so unfortunately production is going to grind to a temporary halt.

Here's the painting desk after a week....

...and this was my entry to the 'Non-Combatants' Bonus Round.

As usual, I've been listening to Meeples and Miniatures to enhance the painting nerdiness, and was chuffed to hear Neil give Paul and me a shout out for our Meeples Bingo game in the latest episode. Thanks Neil! I've also discovered 'Welcome to Nightvale', a hilarious free podcast that purports to be the local radio news from a town in which every conspiracy theory is true. So if mysterious hooded figures at the local dog park, which is emphatically not for dog owners, circling black helicopters or glow clouds raining dead animals are your thing, give it a listen. just tell nobody that you hear about it from me.

Very happy Christmas to you all, and thanks for visiting my humble blog and taking the time to comment, or even just creepily lurking. I really appreciate it.
