Wow. What a challenge that was. I went for a 1000 target and was pretty much in awe at what I had to get done in only three months (1000 points in three months? Lunacy!). But I did it - and then some.
The main thrust of the challenge for me was to get my 30k salamander marines to a slightly larger scale, which I achieved quite early on, and start my 30k Wordbearers legion. You know, because one army for a period is never enough..... And this is what I managed
Really pleased with that as the Wordbearers are tabletop legal as an army and the salamanders have some new toys to play with.
I was surprised that along the way I managed to find time, amongst my often sporadic posting, to complete some side projects, including a shop, a ship and some pirates. I didn't manage to get them all out at the same time sadly as they're strewn across my study, garage and loft as storage is always an issue!
I also completed some flames of war figures (since sold) and a chaos dreadnought who I completely forgot about when taking pictures!
And a picture of me? Here I am, looming above my 30k figures (I do loom rather well, what with being 6'4" and all)
Thanks to Curt, the minions and my fellow challengers for showing me loads of interesting posts every single day for 3 months and making sure it was the first website I checked most mornings to see what was there. It's also been great forcing me to look at what I have in my lead/resin/plastic mountain and I'm really energized to get going on the things that I didn't get time for in the challenge.....just not quite yet as my brushes need a break!
