First Out of the Gate - From MilesR - 28mm Vikings and a Lonely Norman (25 points)

Beating everyone to the punch, Miles came through within zero + sixteen hours (!) to submit the first entry to The Challenge. Here we have a mounted Norman (Gripping Beast, I believe) and two Vikings (of indeterminate heritage - the cads). 

Miles tells me that the Vikings are 'Christmas themed' thus the white hair, beards and red trim ;). As I said to him, nothing says the spirit of Christmas like a Jolly Olaf Nikolas splitting your head with a long axe, burning down your house and stealing your sh*t...

He used Citadel washes on these lads which did a nice job of adding depth. The shield transfers are from Litttle Big Men Studios (LBMS). 

This last fellow is my own 'Danegeld' for The Challenge. A Viking of my very own. I'll be calling him... Myls 'The Eager'.

Great stuff, Miles. You've claimed pole position on the scoreboard with 25 points!

Now, are the rest of you going to take that laying down? I know I'm not...

We Have Launch! The 2nd Annual Analogue Hobbies Winter Painting Challenge Has Begun

Well, we're off! Its now just after midnight on the 20th and I'm officially starting work on my first entry for 'The Challenge' and I know that all around the globe there are painters doing the same. Now, how wonderfully dorky is that!? I think its great.

This winter we have 24 painters representing 11 countries so the blog should have something new to show you every few days, if not more. 

I'm not sure what's on the roster for many of the guys but I'll be working on an Anlgo-Danish warlord command stand for SAGA. Depending on available time (and how much sleep I wish to deprive myself) I hope to get that done in the next day or so.

Ok guys, lets get the lead out!
