From MilesR: Moderns and Chindits (270 points)
Next is 10 WW2 Chindits from Warlord Games. These guys are a blast to play in Bolt Action and will go to fill out my British Burma theatre army. The quality of the castings was very poor and required a lot of time to fix up.
Now some more Empress stuff in the form of 20 modern British infantry and...
I must say the quality of the Empress figures I have painted during this year's Challenge have been superb. In fact I may be ordering some more for the final "push" to March 20....
54 figures in total should net me 270 points. The paint quality is a bit rushed but not bad for a mornings worth of work.
Ok Miles, your "little bit of Saturday morning 28mm figures painting" is equal to 2/3 of my production in the entire challenge.
Anyway, I really like the moderns. Nice work on the bases. Warlord figures are a bit of a crap shoot from everything I've seen and heard. My only experience was with some plastic AWI Hessians - nice sculpts but the heads were in three pieces! I'll chalk up a ho hum 270 points on the Spreadsheet of Doom for you.
