Why not do something along the lines of the old 'What I Painted This Month' thread - that way it's not tied to a specific theme that not everyone may be interested in and just allows users to post pictures of their work while stuck indoors!
I like this idea

A great idea but let us not limit it to 100 entries this time.

Why not a post apoc theme, or is that too grim?

How about anything BUT post-apoc?
It may help to take your mind off of the current situation?

Best idea so far... no restriction on theme, scale, or kind of models painted  8)

Gosh, thanks.  They're Jutes from Mierce Miniatures.  I think this company made the best skeleton warriors I've ever seen. Of course that's up to taste.  They're regular 28mm.

The wraith is bigger.  Probably about 15cm plus spear.

I'm currently experimenting with the contrast paints I recently acquired while painting some really old Wargames Factory survivors my friends young son assembled and primed.   Not the best paint job but lord it is alot faster than I have ever painted before...  lol

Being in public health, way too busy too participate but also can support sinewgrab.  The math behind Covid 19, at its best, is daunting and, at its worst, is horrific.  There are some real idiots making noise and some of them in far too high places. 

Don't plan on a few weeks - plan on two to three months and then hope like heck four weeks and we are swinging back towards normal.  But, seriously, plan for the long term to the best your ability and resources allow.  If you over buy, your excess will be well received by those in need on the other side.  Normal won't come back over night and there will be real pain and want before we get there for far too many.

I'd recommend some sort of rosy, hopeful theme - much better way to distract from the dismal news and realities.

I'm definitely one for "teams" or "together" as the theme (if there is a theme).

I think we should have something.

I'm documenting my Covid-19 painting on a dedicated page on my blog. If interested it's here https://nozzawargaming.blogspot.com/p/coronavirus-hobby-activity.html.

I've got two Blog projects on the go.....



The Chapel at Rofenburg which I am posting as a series of Blog posts detailing how it was built and painted.

and



A group of eight Flintloque Dwarves which I am converting and will be painting up soon.

In between some other Blog posts.

Keep Safe.
