RossM - Challenge VIII Group Shot

This is my 7th Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge and I have enjoyed this as much as each of the previous challenges I have taken part in. The challenge to me has always been about having fun with a hobby and past time that I am both interested in and passionate about. Its also about learning through participation in what has become a calendar event in the blogosphere of miniature painting.

Each year is different and this year saw me pass my challenge point total by a huge 2% coming in at 306 against a challenge total of 300 points. Had planned on passing this total by far more this year and have several different projects that were originally planned for completion in the challenge that will see their time later rather than sooner.

As has become a part of the challenge here are my group shots which where taken earlier today and I forgot to take one with me at their side.

The whole 306 points
My favourite piece this year has been the MKIII in 20mm from Britannia/Grubby Tanks shown top left below.

28mm and 20mm  - 86 points

15mm Undead - 220 points

Below shows where it all happens now and if you look closely you will see some of the unfinished miniatures that were mentioned throughout the challenge.

The mug shot and the great unfinished at the painting desk
Over the last few challenges I have returned to the miniatures that brought me into this hobby and as I am already planning for next year's challenge here are some more retro figures from the early eighties  - DL2 Aly Morrison's Hobgoblins. If anyone out there has anymore of these please leave a message on current post on my blog

For this year's Curtgeld I opted to donate to charity and as Diabetes has been in my family for several generations I have donated to Diabetes UK.

Looking forward to following everyones progress throughout the year and the calling to the challenge  in October/November.

Peace and health to everyone

Cheers, Ross


  1. Great work Ross and a good cause to donate to. Loved your all your skellies this year. :)

  2. Great stuff and a worthy charity. Cheers

  3. Diabetes is nasty. I particularly liked your 28mm warriors!

  4. Nice work mate. I particularly like the German vehicles.

  5. Well done on passing your 300 point goal, some lovely painting but that MK3 does stand out from the crowd.

  6. Nice armour and your skeletons are great but the classic citadel figures are the stand out for me!
    Best Iain

  7. Capital work there kind sir!
