These are 30mm figures from Thunderbolt Mountain and were sculpted by Tom Meier. The base is 4" X 4" and was scratch built by myself. With this work I did accomplished two things: I painted a mounted figure and did my first diorama.
I did win 2nd place with this but was completely unaware of it until over a week later. Whilst commenting on an entry by the Badger I noticed that I had a lot of new points so I sent Curt an email telling him there was a mistake and asked him to reduce my points back down to 76. He called me silly and gave me a link to the post where the winners were announced.
As of this writing I am close to the 300 points I committed to and I hope to have an entry for each one of the Bonus Themes. No, I have not become point hungry and I do not enjoy painting competitively. I want more points because we are also competing for the highest average per country. Ireland will most likely not win but I would like to spare us the shame of being dead last.
Okay there are too many words on this already and I can hear the sound of rapid scrolling to get to the end so I'll just say this. If you have running water in your house, be thankful.
