First up a big welcome to the newest crew member of the longship Tim, who's fine blog can be found HERE.
Okay so we are now 9 days into the challenge and my last couple of days have been fairly quiet on the painting front. with certain festivities just around the corner family life takes a huge stride forward and painting time is reduced as one would expect.
Yesterday saw the first fortnightly bonus round posted on Curt's blog and what a treat that is for anyone who likes to see great painted figures so click the banner on the side bar and go visit analogue hobbies for yourselves.
My submission to the bonus round was a very small and simple extension to all the French Indian war civilians that I had shown earlier last week. with six unarmed civilians adding to the 14 already shown.
Now if you have a problem with spiders I suggest you stop reading as the next picture is not for Arachnaphobes at all.
I was quite pleased when Curt opened the challenge up to fantasy figures and beasties this year. Not that I do much in the way of fantasy painting as this very blog will prove but I do like to paint some of the stuff, that definitely falls into this genre. I have had a certain Arachnid for quite a while, intending it to be part of an Orc and Goblin army, but I just don't like warhammer as a game so I never started the painting.
The challenge however gives me a great reason to paint some of these items, even if the only reason is to clear them from the plastic pile. So that said I have a plan for the spider, its a little off the wall or out of the box but hey that's me sometimes, and I may have left it a bit late for what I plan to use it for but I will be trying. In the foreground you can see I am also well under way with my next batch of figures these are all Foundry Saxons and I really need to get these done and off my bench as soon as practical, I plan to have them completed the first week after Christmas.
Well good people, that is my offering from the workbench for today, thank you for stopping by.
