Well it seems that being a cry-baby has its advantages. Curt read my last post about not being part of the Painting Challenge and took pity on me, offering me a slot vacated by someone who had to pull out of the event. Ironically just as he announced my late entry I went away for the weekend so I only really got started on my first entries on Sunday evening. Within a few hours I was working on three scales and five periods, so expect an eclectic mix of entries from me during the remainder of the Challenge.
I'm working hard to submit my first finished models this week so I can get on the points board, even if my entry will net me only a handful of points. I have set myself a very modest target, partly reflecting my late entry and my slow painting rate. Having said that this will still push me, especially as the bulk of these points will come from 6mm figures.
One of the few things I did get done over the weekend was place a new order with Baccus for my next batch of models for the 2nd Punic War. Nearly a thousand Carthaginians will be winging their way to me soon I hope. The sooner the better because I have some serious catching up to do.
