The Second Annual Analogue Hobbies Winter Painting Challenge.

I've joined 20 other like minded figure painters and entered a fellow bloggers painting contest Analogue Hobbies, certain painted items earn you points and you send pictures of the painted items to Curt at his blog and he keeps score, it doesn't start until the 20th of December and ends on the 20th March 2012.



The points are as follows;

 Scoring Matrix
5 points per 25/28mm foot figure
10 points per per 25/28mm mounted figure
10 points per 25/28mm artillery piece or limber model
4 points per 20mm foot or unmounted horse figure
8 points per 20mm mounted figure
8 points per 20mm artillery piece or limber model
3 points per 15mm foot or unmounted horse figure
6 points per 15mm mounted figure
6 points per 15mm artillery piece or limber model

Now there is a problem, that friend of mine Ray from Don't throw a 1 who has been a burden to me for the last decade or more ( got him a job where I work and he still hasn't thanked me) has also joined ( just because I joined) and has started the smack talk on his blog (very hurtful) but I'm in it for a laugh and to motivate my painting amounts and to participate with others because my therapist said so!

Ray, you're going down quicker than a $10 hooker.

  7. Today I have attempted to honor our country and our people. It is also in some ways a gift to you and done with the utmost respect.

    That said, take him down Angry.

    ReplyDelete
  18. ...or a squad of hookers? I'm thinking that would be A LOT of points.

    Good luck to the both of you! Who knew painting soldiers could turn into a blood sport?

  20. Best of luck Fran, I can see this is going to be a bruising encounter over the coming months. Perhaps we need some form of counter at the top of the page with up to the minute scores; somebody needs to run a book!

  21. I'd say good luck as well, but I'm hoping you both spend your time beating each other up as I'm in on it as well. Something different for the blog anyways. Meanwhile I'm painting as fast as I can to finish what I have on the table!!!

  27. Ray sounds like one of my buddies. We like to throw the good-natured, competitive banter back and forth, too. I wish you luck, Angry Lurker, in the figurine painting contest.
