By the way, for students of such things, I recently did a little analysis of the bonus round themes to date which shows that in previous LPLs we have tried to fairly evenly blend historical, non-historical and generic (something that could apply equally to historical or non-historical) themes.
 
The tally of bonus round themes by type is:

- 8 historical (if we count Back of Beyond as historical)
- 10 fantasy / sci-fi / horror
- 9 generic: could be historical or non-historical

Edited to bring up to date as at end of LPL9, 2015.

You've been in LAf for several years now, Skander. Have you no no *idea* just how unpopular this kind of nagging is to the LPL-runners?  >:D

Of course it is! But someone had to take the bullet for the rest of the impatient ones* ;)

We're almost there, Skander. Still polishing the details :)
Looking forward to it! :)


*Those of us that plan, put away the minis, and then don't have the time to paint it up. However, we all manage to say "Damn, next LPL, next LPL!"...

Well I just put a bunch of stuff from my lead mountain on my painting table. Mostly big units, I'll have to see what else I have & what I might do with what is ready to start.

Yes, some of them are not really practical categories in terms of setting boundaries for what would qualify and what wouldn't. But there are some good suggestions in there too. We'll try to draw from the long list when the next LPL comes round - as we have before  :)

What about Star Wars for next year? Seems apt with all the hub-bub about just now.

Or even Animation. Take that as either cartoons, from Frozen to Transformers, but could even include undead and the like.

I do love the 'I painted this while drunk' suggestion! How do you prove people were drunk when doing. Do you have to produce a positive breath test in your submitted photo? lol
