The first really big batch of entries for the new year as people get themselves into the swing of things.
Before I list the achievements, however, thanks to those who sympathised with my toothache. Dentist tomorrow, but the weekend has been...bad!
In fact, if you told me I could make the pain go away by rubbing my forehead with a badger coated in curry sauce, I wouldn't currently be doing this: I'd be out in the undergrowth with a piece of cheese in one hand (do badgers eat cheese?) and a korma in the other!
Anyway, enough of my complaining, onto the achievements:
new entrant AJH (who's actual name is so splendid I'm tempted to break his anonymity anyway!) has submitted a large 6mm ACW Union army to get himself going for the year
Mr Plowman returns triumphantly with a very nice unit of crossbowmen
WillieB also returns, with a massive entry of resting Napoleonic Frenchmen (but not unfortunately featuring the regimental crest of two dead Frenchmen crossed over a pile of dead Frenchmen)
Mr Naylor enters his second achievement of the year (already) with some WW2 US infantry
Paul Blankenship breaks his duck both this year and in the challenge as a whole with a massive entry of 6mm Cold War British, Americans and Soviets.
Treadhead got religion over the holidays and pops back with a beautiful 28mm chapel
Another newbie submits his second entry: Andrew Helliwell with more autumnal Germans
Carole Flint smashes in a very nice late WW2 British anti-tank gun unit and Big Man
Mr Ralls survives Christmas and submits 28mm Napoelonics and 15mm WW2 figures
Newbie Tony Stapells sends in his first entry: a Welsh DBA army with Murat in command (must have taken a wrong turn in the Alps (or was that Napoleon)
And finally Mr Hodge submits his second entry for the year: a scratch built roof that merits being counted as a building in its own right, and two "Diddums Trucks" - don't ask!
That's not bad going for two weeks in!
Today's pictures are one of the shots of WillieB's Frenchmen and a pic of Carole's anti-tank guns:
