The Painting Challenge begins...and a book is launched.

The painting challenge at Analogue Hobbies finally starts today (haven't painted feck all last week) and good luck to everybody (including Ray....)

They need an undercoat and off we go......

Also the boys Brandon and Bryan over at A Beer for the Shower (one of the top 3 blogs out there....) and they have finally gotten their book out there to the world and can be seen and bought here Amazon for £1.47 or $2.00 I believe and you can win a puppy (hold on....breaking news...the puppy is no longer on offer......air holes are being mentioned.....dammit!)

I bought my copy last night and I hope it's a success for the boys...........


On a final note I had my fingers crossed when I spoke about Ray..........

  4. You've gotta win this contest big guy. It's for Ireland your painting. Now pick up that brush and don't stop until your fingers are bleeding.

    I bought a copy of the boys book yesterday. I'm going to do a post too. I wanted that feckin' puppy dammit.

  13. Paint, Paint, Paint! Do you and Ray have a side bet going on this?

  14. Wow, you even wished Ray good luck. Had to look out my window to see if Hell in fact, did freeze over.

  15. Good luck. It's not about the competition it's... awe hell, who am I kidding. It's about sticking it to your mates and rubbing it in every chance you get.

  19. Lurker: Thanks for the drop-in.

    I did see that you had your fingers crossed. Oh ... wait, is that so hell wouldn't freeze over? Because I checked to be sure that it didn't.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Lurker: Just got your message.

    See here and I thought you were crossing them to keep hell from freezing over. Totally missed the lie with impunity part.

    Duh.

    Told ya I was sleepy.

  27. I agree with the words of MiniMike: Is that all? Seen some other things allready for this competition, and you're far behind from the start ;-) But it seems that Ray is even more behind. He's still unpacking the boxes with figures ;-D

    You should have told us you're just in for fun, and not for winning this competition :-D

    Just teasing you Fran! Go for it and good luck!

    Greetings

  29. Looks interesting, I'll check it out.

  30. I never knew there were such things as a painting competition. Speed painting? or do they judge solely on quality of work.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You do have a lot of work ahead of you. Also, nice of you to promote their book. :P

    ReplyDelete
  32. I like the colored stands that the figurines on the right are sitting on. Makes them stand out. The cannons are a nice touch, too. It's nice that they put in air holes for the puppy. I'm sure he or she appreciates it. :)

  33. Good luck with the paint! And I got my copy of the book from the guys...good stuff!

    I'm working hard on my blog to promote their book. I will be forever immortalized in MSpaint, but I really wanted a puppy!
