What was I thinking?

Well the Fourth Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge is off to a flying start.  My goal is to paint 2,000 points of bare metal, plastic and resin.  You'll see most of it below.  I decided to prime the miniatures in batches.  It doesn't take long, and the really time consuming part of the preparation - cleaning and mounting on bases - is almost complete.
The terrain in the background is not really part of the challenge, just some stuff waiting to be done for a Late First World War scenario.  In the foreground you'll find Early WW1 Germans, WW2 US paratroops, Waffen SS, some 15mm WW2 US infantry, WW2 British paras, WW1 German cavalry, Fallschirmjager, and Early WW1 British infantry, and a couple of Mark IV tanks.  My output so far?  One non-combatant padre for the Great War.  You have to start somewhere.

  3. Oh Wow! That is a serious pile of pewter you are looking at. Should I send you some of my WWI USMC to work on? Just in case you need more.

  5. Yup, that is a shedload of stuff. Bravo! This is why I NEVER array my to-do pile on one table - it would crush my morale! 5 figures at a time. Yep, small bite-sized chunks for me.

  7. Well at least you've made a tiny dent in that huge pile of lead and resin. Good luck in the Challenge!
