Real life has struck me and I have not been able and will not be able to take the time I need to complete the last two rounds. A pity a they are very close to completion. Travel for work and family takes priority, it's just how it is. I hope I will muster a will to complete them later as I though they were quite good ideas for entries, although not on the priority list for game projects.

That's such a shame Hammers. I've looked forward to your entries each week, they've been spectacular.

Indeed.

One of the highlights of this year's LPL.

Gonna miss my Sunday fix.

That is a great shame.  I looked forward to your entry each week almost more than I did my own.

I'd like to register a complaint.

I don't mind occasional double and triple deadlines at work coinciding with LPL. That's business as usual. However, last weekend the temperature suddenly jumped from 8°C to 30°C. It may be the nicest weather we get all summer. Even the nights are wonderful. There are no insects yet. It's would be a perfect weather for any outdoor activity apart from skiing.

And here I am, working on my last entry for a few more nights. Couldn't we postpone this round to November or something?

I feel for you, Dolmot! Finnish weather probably doesn't give you many days like that. Did you at least open the windows and let in the fresh air...? ;) :D

It's the same here and it took the edge of having to stop before the finish line. Lovely really.

We just got the heat wave in today, and though I'm not participating in the LPL, I can understand how disencouraging it may seem. I'm stageing a small assembly of gamers this weekend, and it gets a bit harder to focus on the preparations  lol

I'm definitely going to be struggling to finish round ten. I've already had to ditch my grandiose idea for the 'big thing' due to running out of time. On the plus side I've painted more figures for the LPL than I painted in the last year.

I am falling afoul
Of real life as well...sigh...work is just crushing my will to live this week...let alone paint...:(. I will probably be running an old team for the final
Round...much to my frustration.

Cheers,

Blue

I am glad to say that I just submitted my previously-unpublished (aka new!) WWI era team including my big thing! I had fallen off the train for a while there, using new photographs of older figures thanks to work and life and work... like many others I see! Even though it was a lot of work, I'm sad that it's over! :)

It's been great though, everyone who painted, commented, and voted made it a really good time, so thanks for taking the time to come out and take part! Most of all, thanks to Alex and those others who organized and coordinated the league as well as the hosting of it!

Great times,
n

Finally got my Round 10 team in. Whilst I have enjoyed the experience I will admit it has taken a lot out of me.  If I enter next year I will plan my painting a little more carefully.

I've more or less finished, just the photo to take in the morning. I'd planned a crashed zeppelin as my big thing hut ran out if time. I may build it anyway though.

All done. Didn't go completely smoothly, but done nevertheless. Especially the last two nights were a bit rough for various reasons.

Coming up next, a craft beer festival in the city centre. I heard they have about 100 local products available. I consider sampling them all. It's about 29°C there again, and later in the evening we'll probably continue with the hockey semifinal. Cheers! :D
