Analogue Painting Challenge V - My 1st..... Small entry.


Well I did say it was small, didn't I. This poor chap is my entry into the "Cold" bonus round.
I hadn't planned to enter into this round, because I didn't think I had anything to use, then Postie suggested one of the many dead figures I have for my Donnybrook excursion.
Well I suppose you can't get any more cold than this can you?
Looking at some of the other entrance I've got as much chance of finishing in the top 10, as Fran buying a round next time we go out!!
but there you go, I'm just pleased to finally gets some points on the board, although they're not up yet
and I'm currently languishing in 59th place!
Oh woe is me!


The figure represents a soldier from Kirke's regt also known as the Tangiers regt
They were raised in 1661 and spent 22 years garrisoning Tangiers from 1662 to 1684.
The figure a from Reiver Castings

  2. Its a start, a small start but a start none the least. Actually I thought you was giving the other a chance before releasing your painted hordes.

  3. Nice one, Ray. He definitely rolled a 1 when he should have rolled a 6.

  7. Great little mini and I certainly laughed when I saw it as an entry for the Cold theme. That's a lot of points tied up in a single dead bloke!! :-)

  12. Nicely done Ray and like you I'm desperate to earn some points! At this rate a top 50 place is looking good. ;)

  13. I just want to know where your stacking the other painted figures ;-)

    My aim for this year is top 20, anything higher is unlikely to say the least

  17. I don't want to be rude but: at first I didn't get the perspective and really thought you'd done a miniature version of a heap of vegetables... Sorry! Now I can see clearly it's a redcoated fellah down on his luck :-P

  20. Excellent job -- he looks disturbingly deathlike. I would have said lifelike, but that didn't really seem appropriate.

  21. He may be faking it. Roll 1d6 (1-3 = dead; 4-6 = faking!) to see if he is OK and will get up and join the battle again!

    Nice work on the faker, El Brusho.
