This last model was not part of the plan for the Challenge. Of course once I hit my goal everything is extra, but I had no intention of painting Boromir any time soon. I don't have anything against him. He's pretty great in the game, but he's also very expensive. I tend to shy away from the uber heroes and try to bring more guys.

The next entry was supposed to be for the Victorian themed round. My son's birthday party was that Saturday and after three hours of wrangling kids around the pool I sat down to base this model. Two hours later I woke up and it was way too late to get him based and have the sand/glue dry.

This next entry is, surprisingly, more Celts. These are six 28mm Celt light cavalry from Wargames Factory. There are twelve cav in the box so I made six mediums and these lads lights with javelins.

One of my Christmas presents was a copy of Dan Mersey's Lion Rampant rules. While these are designed for medieval warfare they will work just fine for any sword and board type of troops. They are a skirmish level game, with units of twelve, or sometimes six models. Much is simplified in the name of game play but they work very nicely and are very quick to pick up. This, however, is not a review of the rules.

Another entry of Celts. This starts off with ten more infantry. This gives me 31 infantry so far, which sounds great until I realize I need a couple of hundred of these guys to complete the army.

This next entry is for my U.S. Army for Chain of Command. I painted the first two infantry squads and command in the 4th Annual Analogue Painting Challenge, and have done nothing else with them since. This entry is two .30 MG teams of three men each, on 60mm Mortar team, also with three. The last three models are a forward observation team (FO). All of the models are metals from Warlord. We are having a snow storm today so the lighting for the pictures was a little bit funky.

This entry is another eleven Celt infantry for Hail Caesar. This group is armed with spears and mostly armored in chain mail. Now that I think of it, that doesn't really make sense as I would expect the armored warriors to have swords.

This next entry is the first troops for my Celt army. These guys are being painted up for Hail Caesar. They are individually based so they can be used for skirmish games as well.

This next entry was something I whipped out on Christmas day. This model came free from Foundry last year, when I ordered the Curtgeld.
The model was a quick paint. Simple but loaded with character.
The snow is GW's. I'm not really sold on it, but I have a container of it to use up now. I'm not really sure what I'll do with this model now, but it was fun to paint.

As it's the first day of the new year, it is clearly time to take stock of the year just passed and to do a little planning for the new one, just begun. The place to start, of course, is with this same post from a year ago.
