Painting Challenge

Since 2014 has been such a low for painting I've decided to enter the The Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge this year.  I'm hoping that a bit of friendly competition and the desire to get my 6mm Napoleonic figures painted will act as an incentive to keep painting.  I've gone for 1,000pts in order to stretch myself.  I'll post up my initial plans early next week.

I've spent the last couple of weeks sticking strips of figures to lollipop sticks and undercoating them ready for the challenge.  First priority will be to complete the Russian artillery and cavalry before moving onto the French.

I've also got a few 28mm figures that I'd like to get done, so these will be mingled in with the 6mm over the next couple of months.

Work commitments through until this Friday have meant a slow start, however, I have managed to almost complete 50pts worth of artillery.  I ran out of time before I could add static grass and tufts to the bases,  WIP shots below, full details will be posted when I submit them to Curt.  I'm now in a hotel in London until Thursday so should get these done before we head off for our family tour around the country on Friday night.
