Ludi incipiant! Let the games begin!

Sunday is approaching fast and so does Curt's 4th Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. The whole blogosphere seems vibrant with expectancy and there's lots of chatter about it on the various blogs. I've been told there's even a group on Facebook for all the participants. As I'm not on FB and don't plan to do so I can't verify these rumours but I think this alone tells a lot about the importance of Curt's call to the brushes for the blogging wargames community. So don't stand aside but join the fray and help to encourage us participants by comments, praise and constructive criticism.

Having finished the scope yesterday I decided to put the brushes aside, clean up the painting desk and take a shot of what I plan to do in the next three months hobby wise.

So I'll take a break from painting (well, I originally intended to take a break of at least a week) for the time remaining till the challenge starts. Later on the updates will come a bit belated here as all I paint will be displayed on Curt's blog first and only later on here on the blog. So if you want to stay up to date and see lots of fantastic painted figures by more talented painters then me than keep an eye on Curt's blog!


  1. great post and am looking forward to what you produce over the next three months. you are correct there is a facebook group for anyone brave enough to join it :)

  2. Looking forward to seeing what you do Nick! I have the rest of the Saxons on my desk as I'm trying to stay on my goals and then after that it's all Pyrrhic.


  3. looking forward to seeing what rolls off your painting table (which looks far too clean at the moment)
    Peace James

  4. Good luck in the chalange ! Looking forward to see the minis you will paint.
