A Merry Christmas - Better late then never

 I purchased the Alternative Armies HOTT Xmas Army with the intention of painting it as part of the 2019-2020 Analogue Hobby Painting Challenge. Last year I was terribly ill with the flu (???) for almost seven weeks starting the week before Christmas. Needless to say, not a lot got done, and then tax season arrived.

Fast forward to this year. I got the army out and started work the week before the big event. (Christmas not the Analogue Hobby Painting Challenge). This year I choose to stand down.

Then on Christmas Day, I received the perfect gift. A set of painting brushes.

Suddenly inspired, by new brushes, new glasses and a sunny day, The army was completed.


  1. That puts a new sort of shiny into shiny toy soldiers! Inspiring photograph of brand new brushes.

  2. Sometimes you have to go with the flow,

    Merry Christmas Rob, AND a Happy New Year!

  3. I love it when motivation strikes like that. Always a good feeling.
