It begins with a spark, and soon the fires burn hot.
The Dominion of Canada has Challenged Free Australia to a paint-off – well, more like a ‘let’s see if we can make some headway against the growing tide of unpainted miniatures-off’.
Over at the inestimable ClockWerk Warriors blog, Adam (whose painting skills leave mine to shame) has agreed to a painting challenge… three weeks and a collection of miniatures to paint.
Adam has committed to painting:
3 Marsailes Cruisers, 3 Ecuyer Support Cruisers, & 6 Chevalier Destroyers
While I have:
4 Victoria Class Gunships, 2 Tasmania Class Sub Tenders, & 2 Bounty/Cerebus Class pocket battleships.
I have to be honest and admit I feel this is slipping from my grasp, I’ve hardly managed to get paint to miniature the last week despite the very best of intentions. Nonetheless it hasn’t been a complete write off, and I have finally managed to get some paint onto my Victoria Gunships – not much, but it’s a start!
Some bronze, the windows, a glow effect around the generator, a wash and a highlight and they should be done… Fingers crossed I manage to make more headway over the next few days!
