in addition even superb painters will need to catch up the "new team" and "special-round" boni. Imho with only one team and looking at all the top noth painter in here again, this guy or lady almost certainly c/would not win.

However, there are a few entries I'd choose for trying.  :o

Must remember to take a pic of my round 4 entry this week and submit it.  Will start my round 5 entry tomorrow evening.

Scott, no, there were no teams 'carried forward' this week. Think you must have still been looking at round 2  :)

Must be that, then. Or perhaps the heavy drinking.

I apologize for casting aspersions on anyone's integrity.

Thanks.

Here we go with round #3! I've already matched my win total for last season, so I got that going for me.

Still, it looks like it is gonna be a tough round for me... I wish my photo was better, but I am happy with the paint job.

I've got my round 4 and round 6 entries in. Still working on Round 5. Round 7 is pretty much painted, but not photographed.

Hello,

ROUND 4 DEADLINE

Just to remind participants that you have just over 24 hours to submit round 4 entries.
So far I have 20 round 4 entries, which means 12 people haven't yet submitted a replacement team for round 4.
If you don't submit a round 4 team, your round 3 team will carry forward to round 4.

I am away at a wedding this weekend, so need to prepare the matches by tomorrow night (so all I have to do is press a button to send them live on Sunday).
So please get your entries in on time. Thanks :)

BAD NEWS - LT HAZEL

Jan (the excellent Lt Hazel) has unfortunately broken a finger in an accident and won't be painting for the forseeable future  :(
We've agreed that he will submit new pics of previously painted teams used in previous LPLs or shown elsewhere. Obviously he won't be getting any more new team bonus points, but at least it keeps him in the league, which I'm sure we'd all agree is a good thing, given his beautiful painting. I think most people won't have seen most of his stuff before, so it will appear fresh to most voters anyway... But just in case you think you might have seen a particular group of Jan's figures before - well, you might have  :)
Hope the finger mends soon Jan.

Ouch - hope it heals quickly Lt Hazel.

My round 4 is in and work has started on round 5.  Bit of a bumper entry for round 5 with the handlers and animals (22 individual figures going onto 11 bases).  Best crack on then.......

That´s bad luck, but I hope you´ll recover soon. Perfectly fair decision by Richard to keep you posting your existing stuff to stay in the game! It´s fun to be part of it!

Thanks Richard for the announcement. And thank all of you for the get-well wishes. The doc who fixed my metacarpal bone with Wire said: "your Hand will look like Wolverine´s, the wire will project from your hand." And he said that the Hand will be ok in 3 weeks. So fingers crossed I will be able to finish some of my stuff!
Cheers
Jan

Good luck Lt. Hazel, hope you heal up quick.

You could go the Michael Perry route and start sculpting :)

Can you attach a brush there?

Now that would be cool, brushes instead of blades!!
