9th Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge........

..........just when I thought I was out, they (Ray) pull me back in..........and fecking dog legs!

Nagged by Ray to join in again this year and finally relented (head is in a slightly better place) and as you can see I started blogging again, it will mostly be 15mm modern and sci-fi (and a lot of dettol used too!)

Terms and conditions found here!


There is some 28mm stuff too, 28mm Sedgemoor gits from Ray, some Prodos 28mm Predators and an APC from Vinnie and a 15mm cinema from Blotz.......


This year I've buried a few dogs and we were left with just one, the other half wanted her to have some company and a couple of months back she brought a puppy home(something small she said(half collie/half dalmatian!!!) from a friend whose girl had been a little flirty one evening.

Anyway this thing is mad but lovable(stupid) and within a few weeks ran in the way of a falling hay bale (I was trying to sort out) and broke her leg, so currently 800+ euros out of pocket and counting, only allowed 5 minute walks, caravan arrest, has eaten rugs, figures, clothing and non dog food items etc....

Has caused financial ruin (thank feck for the other halfs parents helping us out) and nearly put me off ever owning any more dogs....... 


The git sleeping off another vet visit and her sedation, she has broken my bloody heart......apologies for the canine related news but it's been an emotional nut kicking time recently!

Well done to Curt and now I hear he has minions, the poor fecker (can you get cream for it I wonder?).



To my fellow painting challengers (except Ray).........good luck!

  4. Welcome back to the challenge, and good luck big fella :)

    Collie-Dalmatian cross? You're going to have an "interesting" (and probably very expensive) time with that one. Wishing the pup a speedy recovery.

  11. I have come to learn that cats are very capable of finding new and creative ways to piss one off. Seems that certain types of dog are equally talented. I might have guessed...

  18. Best wishes on the challenge, Fran. And that is a cute pooch - despite her rascally start with the family. BTW, we said farewell to our 15 1/2 year old dog earlier this year too - she's the one on my blog banner to the right looking up at me in the photo.
