When Northstar became the official manufacturer and distributor for Copplestone Castings, they had a little sale and I went a little crazy. This is just my infantry and artillery elements. I also have some militia, armour, cavalry and a one plane air force. But I'm not counting them in this project.

Ha, you're not the only one.  ;) lol

Nice job on the test figure! Scheme looks good so far  :)

I have the rifles, webbing, a wash and highlight left before August 1st and 20 figures "should " be completed
Yearly painting challenges only show me how useless I am at painting...

Here we go...as always excuse the poor photography

The first 20 troops are done.



Here are a few close-ups of two of the figures.





This is the force to be completed. The keen eyed will notice that several other troops are painted as well. I actually painted 44 figures but only based 20. The other 24 troops I will base for September as August I won't have very much hobby time so I got a little head start.

Cheers

Quick Update!

Finished 10 more this month. Was difficult as vacation (yes yes first world problems) got in the way  lol
SO much for that head start I though I had  :)

Here's the 20 from last month combined with the 10 this month.



Progress!

Thank you for the comments!
I think next week I'll start the final rank and file troopers for the November dead line...I want to start the artillery but am worried I could lose/see a decrease in my mojo after so best get the bulk out of the way

Last month I had started the Dare to Die troopers and thought that finishing them would be a nice result for the month. I decided to push along a little further and try to close this AP project out. I've never completed artillery units before so this was a slight challenge but fun never the less. More pictures and waffle on my blog.

Notes: The white glue on the static grass tufts wasn't dry so please excuse the white puddles there.
I know the epaulettes and forage cap bands on the artillery figures should also be a different colour but I'm ok with it.

First up is the big man himself. General Lee To Fat



Next are the Dare to Die Troops



The machine gun



The mortar



The field gun

Bumping for new AP contest

Just did an inventory of what needs to be done.

2 officers
British advisor
Female companion for the warlord
3 buglers (2 awaiting delivery)
3 standard bearers (2 awaiting delivery)
23 troopers
Machine gun section (awaiting delivery)
Bandit chief
17 bandits
Motorcycle with machine gun sidecar
9 Cavalry (6 still to be purchased)

So 31 figures, 9 cavalry, a MG section and motorcycle MG.

Very doable, IMHO given the extended time frame and how much I accomplished last year.

I will also work on some other odds and ends.

2 British Rolls Royce Mk1 Armoured Car
Renault FT 17
Leichter Kampfwagen II
4 New Ray Classic (3) Biplanes & (1) Triplane + pilots for each (pilots awaiting delivery)

Once those are done, I have some Brigade Games/Great War Miniatures WW1 Germans in the queue I'm planning on using for Freikorps. 24 Infantry, 1 MG section, and 1 field gun. Fingers crossed.

So that's the GRAND plan.

Hopefully I can snap a photo of what I finished for 2017 and what I have left to do.
