Analogue Hobbies Winter Paint Challenge 2022/23 Wrap Up
Well that wasn’t what I was expecting as an end result to say the least, to say I was distracted is a real understatement. It was all supposed to be about the 28mm Italian Wars but as anyone who had a look through my posts would know it went a bit sideways, or seaways to be more precise.
Not too much of a distraction were these 10mm Pendraken Malburian figures for my Savoyard and French Armies, I’ve been using these for quite a while now as a Palette Cleanser so these were everyday fare.
Another planned distraction were these 28mm Franco Prussian French Chasseur a Pied, these were a bookend on last years Garibaldi Project and got me started back in December.
I did eventually get some Italian Wars stuff done, a unit of 16 Swiss Shot which I needed for an existing Pike Unit and 12 Borgia Light Cavalry and finally just under the deadline was a 60 figure Spanish Colunela, which should have been the first of a number in the Challenge.
The Colunela is a fine looking unit and I did some photos with a white background which I really like.
But of course the main distraction were these 1/700 WW2 Naval Ships, 3 large vessels, Bismarck, Prince of Wales and Ark Royal along with 2 Merchant Vessels, 7 Destroyers and a Submarine.
The Ark Royal is particularly impressive, the base is 42cms x 10 and its definitely imposing, I’m not a fan of the aircraft supplied with the kit and will be replacing them with upgraded versions in due course.
My favourite from my Challenge was the Bismark Build, the detail on the Revell kit is superb and it really added to the model. One of the best things I’ve ever done. I will sort out my charity donation in a few minutes and that’s me done for another year.
Thanks again to Curt for heading up this wonderful Challenge, Peter for being my Monday Minion and waiting for so long for some Spanish Wars Italians and finally to all the people who visited and commented on my posts.
Until next time, Sithee
