Paul OG's Challenge - A Little can be a Lot

As you all know, I didn't paint much but I'm smiling because it's the most that I've painted in almost 2 years.  In fact its the only stuff I have painted since AHPC IV. Sad but true.

Just 9 samurai but they represent much more to me (that background pot plant is actually The Lad in his ghille suit)
Thanks indeed for getting me re-motivated and back into our hobby after my enforced painting absence.  It's made me find my gear after moving house (twice), replace dried up paints and glues, and find my mojo. The comp may be over but I'm just getting started and already have new projects on the go. That very likely wouldn't be the case otherwise without this comp and all the encouragement that comes from its participants.

So thanks indeed and I'll be back for a third time raring to go!

    And you certainly did arrive with your one entry in the nick of time! :)

    Glad to hear you're back painting and have plenty of projects planned :)

  2. 9 figures is better than none! Hope the next Challenge is more productive for you.

  3. It is better to be on hand with 10 men than absent with 10000 - Tamerlain. 9 is close enough. Well done

  10. Between bullying the SAGA folk into producing a new supplement and undertaking the world tour, I'm frankly amazed you found the time!
