From KentG: A Fitting End (45 Points)
So to finish of this years effort I present the commanders
Firstly Saladin my favorite paint during the comp, when the figure arrived. I wasn't sure i could paint it as the client required with so much detail but after quite a few hours work and racking my brain on how to achieve the colours i'm so happy with the outcome
Next up is Prince Rupert and Sir Bryon
These figures are Trent miniatures and i spent way to much time on them i couldnt help myself they were so nice to paint
I started the comp with Napoleon and it's only fitting to finish with him in this merry band of figures once again a Trent miniature and a joy to paint thank goodness all my figures weren't this nice otherwise i'd have got nothing done
Then this nasty bits of goods Valpurgius, i have to say man he was hard to paint all the detail on the hat and body was in the picture i had to use as reference, but it wasn't cast onto the figure so its all free hand glad hes done
Finally a big thank you to Curt and his minions especially Sanders for all their help, the great comments and to everyone for your great painting, it's been a blast
Again, beautiful work here. I have to agree with you in that your Saladin is probably one of the best figures you did this Challenge. The embroidery and overall shading is superb. What a treat. That being said, your Byron, Rupert, Napoleon and Valpurgius are no slouches either (the skulls on his cloak are absolutely mental).
What a magnificent end to an epic Challenge run. Fantastic work Kent. I'm not sure what the historical stats are on output (Miles will give us a rundown in a few days), but I'm certain you're in amongst the very best, if not the top - it was truly astonishing to witness what you could do in a three-month timespan. Bravo!!
I hope to see you amongst us at the starting line next November when the call goes out.
