For Fran

As many of you know, our friend Fran is returning home to Ireland tomorrow.  I know he will miss his friends in England and that he will be missed by them.

We all wish him and his other half the best as they return to the land of Fran's birth.

This is a song the Hubby and I recorded in 2004 and it is dedicated to all Irish who are away from home.

Go n-éirí do thuras leat!

Gangster Pulp and Hasslefree Modern (PICTURE HEAVY)

As these figures posted on the Analogue Challenge Hobbies Painting Blog yesterday, I'm going to keep the verbiage to a minimum. I'm rolling two separate posts into one in order to minimize the number of posts I have to do on my blog this month.

First up are the Pulp Gangsters from my Secret Santa.

This is Finn, a 25mm figure from Hasslefree sculpted by Kevin White.

Hasslefree Juveniles, scaled to 25mm and sculpted by Kevin White. (NON POINT SUBMISSION)

Thus far I have had six submissions to the Challenge as opposed to three for the same time period last year. Also I am now submitting more non-themed entries than themed Bonus entries, a goal I set for myself this year.  

With these figures I have finally cracked 100 points.

30 Posts for 2014!

Yes folks, it appears as if I've reached a hallmark for my blog. Today marks an epic 30 posts for me this year.  Many of you are probably asking yourselves "How does she maintain such a blistering pace?" or "Holy Christ, she must be superhuman to crank out that many posts in a single year."

My response would be that I'm a great under achiever. No one out there can do less better than me and that's a fact.

I set out to do 50 posts or less this year and it looks like I'm going to succeed by a whopping margin. Really, why set the bar high when you can set it low and always come out feeling like a winner?

As I'll be away for the Holidays next week, I must get as much painting time in as possible lest I fall behind in the Painting Challenge. So between painting and the Holidays it looks like I'll be gone again for a while. Did you really expect me to do more than four posts in a month? Really?

I've finished painting my figure for the next Themed Entry (Mount's and Riders) so I don't have to worry about it. Also I'd like to turn in my Hasslefree Moderns before I leave next Monday.  

So I'll wish you all a Happy Christmas now. For those of you who are traveling have a safe journey there and back again.
