Contestants have until Midnight on the 27th to submit a final entry,

I'm going to attempt at least the chaos faction of the Execution force boxed game... I may throw in the assassins. I'll get pictures up over the weekend.

(Would Timewizard or Spack be kind enough to accept or refuse my entry, as the guy running this contest it isn't right for me to accept my own entry)

Stuff arrived this morning.
Ebay rescue 10 ork burna boys, mix of old metals and new plastics. Picture shows them as they arrived. Strip, clean up and repaint in my freebooter colours for the competition!

So, i feel the need to make a confession to you guys

The real reason I've started these contests again, isn't just about getting traffic through the site again.

As a couple of you know, i have rather aggressive arthritis, and its getting pretty bad in my hands, to the point where it takes me months now to do what i used to do in days. I'm fighting to maintain my usual standard, which as you'll have seen from my various project logs on this site, went from a joke to pretty damn good (blatant bragging there), and i need a reason to keep doing things

so... here we are, two years after they were stopped, contests are back, and i have a reason to keep trying!


Don't expect gold from me, but you'll get the very best im capable of, also learning a few short cuts that should help out big time!

While I can't say I can feel what you're going through, I see the effects of sevier arthritis regularly in my mum. She's had a rare form since her teens and has been almost completely crippled by it for at least 20 years. That coupled with how I'd feel if I was loosing the ability to do anything, especially regard this hobby... You have my deepest empathy..

I will be entering this month. Can't get any pics up till tomorrow though.

I don't expect to be finished before the end of the month. But it's what I'm going to be working on through January, so I may as well add it here :)

I'm intending on doing a Stormtalon/Dreadknight mashup kitbash. I'll be using these 2 kits, plus whatever I can find lying around.

My mother has a touch of arthritis in her hands. It doesn't restrict her much, but makes things a bit painful. Its not a nice thing at all. :(

I don't think I'll be able to do this one but I'll try another later.

Not sure if I'll get them done but I'll throw in a set of Airfix 1/48 British Infantry on Patrol from their Op Herrick range. I'll upload a pic in a few days.
Started building them last night so hopefully I'll have time to finish building and painting for this month.

In theory I am selling my house and finishing moving out over the next two weeks (waiting for exchange to happen, but I agreed to the date they proposed) so I think this will be difficult, however, I do have in mind something very simple so I'll drop that in later just to start the new year on the right foot ;)

Ok I'm not sure I'll get this lot done but here's to the challenge! I'm not going to do the assassins as I think they need to much individual attention but I am going to try and do all the chaos faction.

So these are the Airfix British Infantry I intend to paint. Reason for painting them is that I intend to use them as a training aide for teaching section formations. Hopefully they will be up to the task.. :-)
