When I looked at the amassed output, the first thing that came to mind after the "oh crap where am I going to sore this stuff?" moment was 2 things I didn't paint. There are no Napoleonics or Flames of War in this years output.
I haven't been that active with positing and comments with this years challenge as it's been a bit of a stressful year with a very busy professional agenda (which is good but tiring) and, more importantly, dealing with a serious illness with my son, Sean (uniformly bad). Thankfully, Sean is a tough cookie and is on the mend but there were a few weeks in February that I would prefer not to relive.
The craft side of the miniature hobby has always been a great stress reliever for me and this year that aspect was especially important. While my commenting was limited I am very grateful to all the Challenge participants whose entries and banter were very helpful to me over the past few months.
Thank you all very much.
