Iannick's Challenge

This hasn't been a very productive year for me, as I've been living in boxes and preparing to move in a few weeks. Numerous visits to our house, which is for sale, also meant I spent more time cleaning than painting!

Still, a little Oldhammer got done...




 A beast of Nurgle was raised...



 A new period (Sci-Fi) was started...





 and a first place was won in a Bonus theme round !



And, of course, I had to pay the piper...



So of course, my least productive year ever is the year Curt asks for a picture! I will oblige, but also cheat and include a picture of the finished Murawski's Baden battalion (researched and designed by yours truly) which was meant to be my last and most glorious entry of the year but missed the deadline by a few hours.




And here I am in front of my meager contribution.Yes, the Oldhammer painter is something of a nostalgia junkie...


It was once again a privilege to be a member of such an esteemed company of awesome, if a bit crazy, painters. Looking forward to crossing brushes with you all next year!

  11. Good luck with your move Iannick, hoping to get some gaming in June-July. You must be really done to be wearing an expos jersey. Limited painting indeed but all very well done.
