AHPC - Round Up



Its a bit late but.........

Sadly the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge has come to an end for another year. But what a great few months its been, I find it such a motivational experience, I'm sure we all do really? Usually it wipes out my painting for the rest of the year, but with this horrid Corona Virus keeping nearly everyone in lockdown, what else is there to do but paint more.  In Challenge X I planned on painting up 1600 worth of figures, which I just managed to pass in the last week. 

I painted up
162 x 25mm figures
10 x various terrain/vehicle pieces
90 x 15mm figures
96 x 10mm figures

I always plan (ok hope?) for a top 20 finish, if I make the top 10 its a great bonus, this year I finished 11th, which I'm extremely pleased with. Somehow I forget to post 3 25mm figures I painted up, I bought 9 painted figures at a show and needed another 3 to make up the unit to 12. They'll now appear later on my blog, Anyhow........

Here's my performance so far in all the Challenges
Challenge II        4940 points 1st
Challenge III       2586 points 4th
Challenge IV      1227 points 17th
Challenge V        691 points 37th
Challenge VI      681 points 36th
Challenge VII    1093 points 24th
Challenge VIII   662 points 40th
Challenge IX      2274 points 8th
Challenge X       1687 points 11th

So finally a massive thank you has to go to Curt, Sarah and all the Minions for all their hard work and thanks to all the other Challengers who pushed me forward with their competition and all the great comments!

Vive la Challenge!!!!

  9. Congrats RAY on your placement in this years Painting Challenge. I've no idea how many figures I've painted up - perhaps only a couple of hundred in 25mm...I'd be no good at a Competition - and be last place! Cheers. KEV.

  10. Nice one Ray :) About the only good thing to come out of this covid madness (aside from the environmental impact,) is that we have all painted loads more soldiers!

  17. I’m always tempted to join in the AHPC in order have a spurt of productivity but I know I’d be embarrassed by how little I got done. It must be a great way to make headway on a project.
    I think your totals are very impressive. Well done! Every right to feel satisfied. 😀

  19. Well done, a good showing, position-wise and a fair few figures to show for all your efforts.
    I wonder if you would have completed as many without the challenge ?
