Kicking off the Painting Challenge

Right. Here we go. Three months of brush wielding mayhem, banter and absolute rollicking nerdy fun. Curt's 4th Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge starts tonight!

I've set myself a personal target of 1250 points, plus the side challenges of finishing an entire army and taking on Tamsin and Samuli who have similar points totals. Clearly there's NO time for slacking.

I've also worked out most of my stretch goals. These aren't compulsory but they ARE a source of quick points...

December 22: Non Combatant(s)
Warhammer 40K Adeptus Mechanicus acolytes / henchmen

January 5: Villain(s)
Warhammer Heinrich Kemmler

January 19: Vehicle
Warhammer 40K SM Razorback OR Warhammer Wight King Chariot

February 2: Hero or Heroic Group
Mounted Marechal Michel Ney

February 16: Casualty / Casualties

March 2: Favourite Character
Warhammer 40K Techmarine

March 16: Last Stand
Something from Napoleon's Retreat from Moscow

And just quickly... warm welcomes to Wiatrog, Lee Hadley, Neil Andrews and Geoff K.



  1. Best of luck with the challenge Millsy!

  2. Good luck, sounds like you have a plan! I've no idea what to do for the villain weekend.

  3. Good luck Millsy - it will be fun to have a few people to compete against. I found that last year trying to keep up with or beat Ray, Fran and Ian spurred me on no end.

  4. I'm looking forward to seeing the Warhammer stuff. For your vehicle I'd like to see the Wight King Chariot especially. Good luck Millsy!!

  5. Looking forward to the Warhammer stuff as well. There is so much character in those figures! Good luck!

  6. Good luck Michael, some good stuff coming up there.

  7. Well here we go my good friend and best of luck with that challenging total!

  8. Ladies and Gentlemen, start your paintbrushes!

  9. Thanks all. There seems to be plenty of interest in the Warhammer stuff so stay tuned!

  10. Some pre-planning there. I have ideas but not as organised as you by the looks.

  11. That all sounds great, Millsy. You're a very brave chap for stating your themed targets in advance! Bravo, and best of luck!
