When last I posted, I'd just thrown my hat into the ring with my Nostalgia Bonus Round entry, Mark Copplestone's excellent 'Captain Spaulding' miniature. I flatter myself that I've been a little more productive since then.
So let's recap;
My second figure for the Challenge was the price of my admission, or 'Curtgeld' - each Challenger has been asked to submit a figure representing a risk-taker or gambler, and the wily Odysseus fits the bill perfectly. He's a Foundry casting by Alan Perry, and is part of their Mycenaeans & Trojans range.
Next off the table were two Pulp adventurers, again courtesy of Copplestone Castings.
The pulp adventure theme continued with my next submission, Bob Murch's characterful fundraiser for Movember, "Captain Krustache of Kashgar". The good captain has been pressed into service to represent a character in our regular Pulp RPG campaign.
Well, all this artisan-level derring-do is all very well, but it doesn't exactly help me reach my target of 200 points! So I decided to switch to painting a unit of troops instead.
These are Agema plastic Roman Velites, based with a North African theme for the Punic Wars. Lots of detail on these very fine plastics, and I hope I've done them justice.
That's all for the moment; it would be nice to try and produce another unit before the Challenge ends, but there are several skirmish-level gangs, warbands and characters competing for my attention as well, so who knows what will be next out of the box?
