I agreed to what?   That doesn't sound like me at all.......

So starting Sunday I am in a 4 way painting challenge with; Darren (Skaven), Nick (Orcs) & Carmin (Chaos) to see who can get 50 trooper models done first.

I always think these painting bets are a good idea and then I line up 50 models infront of myself and do a double take.  Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gainned.

So today I've got my 52 Light Infantry cleaned and glued into their bases and I'll be black priming them tomorrow in preparation for starting painting on Sunday.

I'm actually super-excited about getting these figures done as they have been sitting in my basement waiting patiently for paint for well over 3 years now.  Hopefully after I get them all done I can find a game to use them in.

Tomorrow I will post my first month end summary of what got completed in the hobby for January.


Ready for priming....I'm trying to remember how long I've been using that same Pizza Pizza box for....


  1. I forgot to mention, if you'd like to follow Carmin's progress check out his blog at

  2. should I just sent you guys my space hulk figs and you can make the challenge who can paint my figs the fastest....

    Just saying, we all know how this is going to turn out...

    1. I like your confidence Darren.
      In fact you beat us both so convincingly last time if I were you I wouldn't even bother starting until Monday or Tuesday.....


    2. Actuly, I have to prep for my savage world Cthulhu game tonight, and Monday night I run my Savage World Cthulhu game. So yes, you all get a head start. I pick up my brush Tuesday morning.

    3. I got the head start I wanted but I'm jealous that you're actually playing Savage Worlds Cthulhu.

      I've got some stuff I'm planning on painting up for Stange Aeons. Can I ask what figs you're using?

  3. Also Carmin, I'd appreciate it if you hid his cheater dip from him for the next week.
