6th Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge

Because I wouldn't want to get bored in between moving across the world, visiting London and Norway, finding a house, settling the kids into new schools, and getting a new job position.  Curse you and your challenges Dux!

Curt's Scoring and Bonus round directions are as follows:

The Scoring
6mm foot figure = 0.5 point
6mm mounted figure, artillery piece or crew served weapon = 1 pts
6mm vehicle = 2 points
15mm foot figure = 2 pts
15mm mounted figure, artillery piece or crew served weapon = 4 pts
15mm vehicle = 6 pts

28mm foot figure = 5 pts

28mm mounted figure, artillery piece or crew served weapon = 10 pts
28mm vehicle = 15 pts

The Fortnight Theme Bonus Rounds
Same as previous years, we will have a series of thematic Bonus Rounds. Each Bonus Round asks Challengers to enter a submission that illustrates a particular theme. The Bonus Rounds are not mandatory, they are just a little bit of fun to pace out the the Challenge and allow people to gain some points and fame through presenting vignettes and specific single figures. 
Those Challengers who manage to submit an entry for a 'Fortnight Theme Bonus Round' will receive an extra 50 points on top of the regular entry tally. No scales less than 15mm will be eligible for the Theme Bonus Rounds but they can be of a historical or fictional subject. 
The seven Bonus Themes along with their submission deadlines are:
  • January 3rd: Nostalgia 
  • January 17th: Epic Fail 
  • January 31st : Defensive Terrain 
  • February 14th: L'amour 
  • February 28th: Nautical 
  • March 13th: Gambler/Risk-Taker

    1. Well done Dux on getting Paul involved. Now we just have to get him to ease off setting the bar so low with all his excuses about having a real life...

  3. Just when you thought you were out, they drag you back in!

    1. Sometimes I have the tensile strength of a warm Mars bar...

    2. No pressure, but I am expecting to be wowed by your nautical entry.

  4. I hope you are looking forward to it because it is 3 months of the year you will never get back..... Personally I love it. And IHope you will too.

    1. Thanks Clint, I love it too - being part of such a wonderfully supportive community activity is very rewarding.

      Having missed it last year, I can honestly say once you've done it you really miss it and being an interested observer just isn't the same

  5. Glad to have you back in. Of course, I still plan to crush you under a near constant barrage of poorly painted miniatures. Rest assured I will now do so with a very slight twinge of guilt that will quickly pass.

    I look forward to our nautical duel!

    1. Me too Miles!
      And no doubt you'll rack up a very impressive score once again :-)

  6. excellent - dont let theser other matters trouble you - crack on!
