This is an ambivalent statement. The competitors wouldn´t all be glad to learn about, but the spectators will of course, I guess...

Well said. I'm not thrilled...  :D ;)
But at least mine is now done and emailed. Phew!

Well, you can clearly see the mounting pressure now everybody has to deliver a fresh squad for 7 weeks in a row now. Hats off to all of you who managed to cling on so far...  :)

Yes, it's a marathon not a sprint...  ::)

Alas, I've just received sad news via intermediaries that Bugsda is now without internet for the forseeable future, so I don't think we'll be seeing any new entries from him either. Shame, because I saw him at Salute and liked the sound of what he had lined up for round 10. But c'est la vie... It's a long old campaign in the LPL, and real life has a nasty tendency of getting in the way of the best-laid plans...

But I'm sure the last couple of rounds will see some spectacular charges to the finish line  :)

Round 9 completed, but probably won't get the chance to photograph it until after work tomorrow.......it may be a late entry if that's ok?

For some reason I've had Caravan playing in my head all day.

The last entry has been sent. In characteristic madness I decided to start a completely atrocious quality resin model two days before the deadline and managed to squeak it in  o_o

Well done participants- another LPL is nearing its end :)

Yep. Some really wonderful round 10 entries to enjoy come Sunday...
If you haven't sent a replacement team yet, please try and do so by the end of today.
Thanks very much all.
The end is in sight!  :)

And I'm done.
Phew, the last two weeks, delayed by a trip to Nottingham and catching up at work, were tight.

I managed to assemble and paint a total of 56 models, if I counted correctly, including one which I never included in the photos as it would have probably resulted in a partly defocused images, as in some of my earlier rounds. Getting stuff painted was my aim, so I am happy to have managed all weekly entries.

Once again thanks to Captain Blood for all the work needed toorganise this.  8) 8) 8)

There's no doubt, that despite all the hard work, the LPL is a great way to force yourself to paint 50 - 60 new figures in a three month period :)
It's certainly helped me break the back of my cave wars project.

73 and a big thing if I counted correctly...  :D Thank you LAF, that was more than I´ve done in a bad year.

Blimey - crap day at work... which lasted 3 hours longer than expected, then stuck behind grockels on the way home (40 min journey has taken almost 2 hours)......but can now submit the photo for the final round.

Thank you for running it all Richard and for being flexible with the timings  :D
