Another year has gone by and once again the Pendraken Painting Competition is upon us. As in previous years I always seem to leave it to the last minute to dig out what has been finished this past 12 months and then hurry to take some photos. Slightly more organised this time around (ie I had a sort out last night!) meant that I only had to set up some terrain today to set the miniatures in. Even so it was still a rush, with the deadline for submissions midnight tonight!
It is interesting to look back at what was achieved, which was slightly more than I remembered. Not all of the following will be submitted, but I had fun posing the AFV's and figures. So without further ado:
|A Sherman squadron for use with BKCII. Another one was recently completed, which will be used as command tanks.|
|A squadron of Cromwell tanks which jumped the queue as they are needed for my current BKCII campaign.|
|An AVBCW command base and Recce unit. The model T Ford was converted slightly to make it into an armoured version.|
|A parade of AVBCW flag bearers. I was happy with how these turned out.|
|An AWI command base.|
|Some 18thC Imagi-Nations heavy cavalry.|
|A 19thC Imagi-Nations artillery limber and civilian driver.|
|19thC Imagi-Nations artillery. I think I will paint the barrels black, rather than brass/bronze, for a greater contrast with the ochre carriage.|
|19thC Imagi-Nations Zouave command base.|
|19thC Imagi-Nations Zouave unit.|
|19thC Imagi-Nations 'Swedish' unit.|
|19thC Imagi-Nations Infantry Brigade.|
Each year I do realise how many projects I have 'on the go' and most are far from completion. Currently I'm trying to 'finish off' some WWII forces so they are all but complete, which I can then return to as and when I feel the need or desire to. This will hopefully allow me to focus on another set of forces for a different period, such as my 'stalled' 19thC Imagi-Nations forces. One can but hope, but the flap of the butterfly's wings will inevitably come and distract me!
So until next time stay safe and keep healthy.
