Further to this I was looking through a known hidey hole and found a nice stash of French Indian war figures that also need a good lick of paint, I have picked these up through this year as I have been to shows I have acquired another unit I just had no actual idea of what I had hidden away, well these are also out and ready to be cleaned and primed in the hopes of getting painted.
I want to be more organised with the challenge this year as last year I bounced from this to that and towards the end started to lose my focus. So I have placed nice handy countdown on the sidebar so I at least know when I can make a start and this will be replaced by a new one for the close of the challenge. I have at least been good with the spreadsheet and am remembering to update it when I prime new figures. The total number of figures prepared now is over 400 and it will be a ruddy miracle to complete that lot as its over 2000 points worth, so I can say that without doubt I can stop preparing plastic lead etc, etc.
Of course the spreadsheet in itself wont stop me from bouncing from one unit to another, in fact that is part of the plan to break up the monotony and will give me a wide variety of things to paint, and if I get on well will see some projects conclude allowing me fresh opportunities for 2014.
Now opportunities come along every now and again and some are just too good to miss out on especially if you like a bit of history and enjoy a good read. To that end I urge you to pop on over and visit fellow blogger +Edwin King's site for a chance to bag yourself a good read at a 10% discount. Just click the image below.
Well that's all for this post I will be back Wednesday with another one thanks for stopping by.
