AHPC X For Joshua - 10mm Romano British Warriors

A few months ago back in September fellow Challenger James, very sadly lost his
unborn son Joshua. 
James is trying to raise money for the local hospital where his wife stayed.
In memory of his son he had an amazing idea....

"My current idea is a 10mm project - fantasy undead and orcs versus the 'free people'. The free people would be eclectic - a mix of whatever anyone wanted to contribute or paint that fitted the 'fantasy' setting. Arthurian knights, Elves, Dwarfs, Humans of any variety, Lizardmen, etc, etc - anything and everything from medieval or late medieval model ranges or fantasy ranges.

The baddies would be in black with a little red.

The set would then do some of the wargames shows in the UK, as a display or demo game.

The whole project would then be raffled (or auctioned) off - The proceeds would then go towards an appropriate charity in honour of my little boy whom I will never get a chance to share my hobby with."

I spoke to Rejects Lee and Postie and explained what had happened, they both agreed that they'd like to help out and would paint some figures up. So at Warfare in Reading we all bought some figures.
These are Hordes and Heroes from Kallista Romano British Warriors.

So if any of you guys n gals would like to help out please do so.

It's my first ever time painting up 10mm figures, I think I need new glasses????
There are 32 10mm figures giving me 32 points

AHPC X - LotR Warg Rider

My first entry proper, (not counting the entry into Challenge Island) and its not Donnybrook!
I was wondering what and or who, to paint  for my Curtgeld entry. So I went very off pist for me and did some fantasy!!!

This luvvly looking chap was found all alone at the bottom of a drawer. Gawd knows when I bought him and Gawd knows why I bought him? But I thought there must be at least one of my fellow Challengers who needs a Warg Rider added to their Lord of the Rings collection???

I've once again used my very own grass tufts, which I'm very pleased with!

Points mean prizes and I was awarded 10 points for the figure with a further 25 points for the Curtgeld entry sending me shooting up the table to no 40!
