I had two major projects that I wanted to get forward during the challenge. US troops for Flames of War and Saxons for our Napoleonics games. Both did see quite a few units done. The Saxons are still far from completion, but the yanks only really need one small platoon and a few random Jeeps and they are done at least for a while. I've previously had some issues with keeping my painting mojo going with larger projects so this time around I vowed to do some fun stuff in between to break the monotony of painting unit after unit of the same forces. Quite successful and I did manage to put some paint on multiple Oldhammer and other miniatures that have been waiting for paint far too long!

Zombicide and some christmas decorations
And last but not least my entry fee in the form of the teddy bear likeliness of our beloved Snowlord!
Finding (and taking) a suitable photo for this momentous event proved to be rather hard. Normally I'm the one behind the camera so not much photographic evidence is available. And the missus is out of town so wasn't available for a photo shoot. So we'll have to go with some archival footage from a few months back with me taking part in my second favorite analogue hobby, hunting. Moose were hurt during the taking of this photo, but if it's any consolation to Curt, Greg and the other Canadians, no maple syrup was hurt during the act. As you can see from my ugly mug I'm holding the younger end of the age scale in the challenge as I'm only dealing with a looming 30s crisis.
Finally thank you again Curt for hosting this challenge! It's definitely increased my hobby output and skills throughout the years in vast quantities. Really a highlight of the hobby year!
And condolences to all the Canadians about none of your teams reaching the NHL playoffs (though I'd imagine Curt is quite happy that there is less hockey coverage). At least you have the World Cup coming that you can safely dominate!
