    Vive la revolution comrades!

    2020 was a hell year for all of us, for multiple reasons. As of the time of writing, the year was one of the worst for me on a personal level in quite a long time. That said, there were also some highs, so its not all gloom.

    With that said, and a month and 10 days in , I'm opening my 2021 blog here on DakkaDakka. My initial goal for this year is 365 miniatures equivalency, as per usual.

    To stand testament to my progress, my tracker and self imposed rules are below, to be edited as necessary.

    Wargamers Challenge 2021 = 379 main scales
    Wargamers challenge 2021 = 36 small scales

    Smalls encompasses anything smaller plus starships
    Standard infantry count as one for painting

    Monsters count as anywhere between 3-10, depending on size (see below)
    Chariots count as 5 for painting
    Transports count as 5
    Battle Tanks count as 5
    Behemoths for AoS start out at 5, more if justified.
    Fliers/aircraft count as 5-10 depending on size (see below)
    Larger models determined on a case by case basis
    Primaris Marines count as ogre sized
    Onager Dunecrawler = will count as 6 for painting due to base

    5 halflings militia. In last stages, so adding to the count.

    Sgt needs his shield, bases need drybrushing.

    I so much love these colors on those models, the recesses of the fabric help a lot.

    These are brilliant!

    I especially like the eyes, how do you get that effect? Any time I have tried to do them, it just ends up looking really, REALLY creepy...

    Building and converting a sky ship because I've been watching Hornblower all week and felt it was time for the city's army to get some naval action in.

    Very much WIP

    That is a great idea and a wonderful start.
    Where are those armor suits from? those aren't Cities of Sigmar if I am correct.

    Curious to see how you will put this conversion together ;)
    This one is for your own collection?

    Grrr, Imrahil
