TFL Painting Challenge: Monday Night Update

Again, apologies for lack of posts since Friday. Very busy weekend, especially with the snow: abandoning your car at 8.30 in the morning with a 10-year old in tow is never a good way to start your Sunday...but fortunately everything ended up going more or less to plan.

Another reason why posts have been comparatively rare is that I am just finishing my next scenario pack for IABSM. The September War, Part 2 is on the way, and should be out at the end of this week. It's another 30-odd scenarios for the 1939 German invasion of Poland, meaning that if you were clever and bought Part One, you will now have sixty-four early war scenarios to play through. Definitely enough to justify buying that early war Polish army...

Anyway, back to the painting challenge. Today's submissions, in no particular order are:

  • Stumpy with huge amounts of basing
  • A few more gaps in his gallery have been filled by Mr Luther
  • It's AWI time for Mr Helliwell
  • Matt Slade has gone all LOTR on us, plus a small matter of a demon prince
  • There's a very familiar looking windmill from Chris Stoesen, plus a handful of Roman types
  • Some lovely WW2 Soviets from Mr Duffell
  • Steve Burt has moved from Africa to the wilds of Wild West
  • And last, but most certainly not least, the painting machine that is the Fat Wally (Kev) grinds on, outputting some more lovely SYW figures

As always, clicking on the name above will take you straight to their gallery (opens in a new window).

And I'm sure you'll all be pleased to hear that I've decided to run the Challenge in 2018 as well.

Here are today's pics:
