Progress! But no pictures...

I've been painting, which is nice, and I'm not too disappointed by the outcome, which is even nicer.

The problem is that I'm being tempted to compete in the Lead Painter's League Season 6 (LPL6) over on the Lead Adventure Forum. The idea behind it is fabulous for someone like me in that it gives a structure and deadlines for reducing the mound of unpainted lead. There are ten rounds and each round requires  a coherent team of five painted figures. At least the first three must be 'new' teams, and there are bonus rounds as well:

Round 1 - Pre-1991 figures
Round 5 - Tolkein
Round 10 - nautical

I was delighted when I saw the bonus rounds as Rnd1 would be served by my old terminators that I wanted to paint anyway for Space Hulk, rnd5 gave me an excuse to buy the Mark Copplestone hobbits halflings (OOP, but I sent him an email and some paypal and I now have a warband's worth of the little chaps for Song of Blades and Heroes) and rnd10 goes perfectly with the VSF sailors I'm well underway with.

So, I have to have 15 figures painted by 27th Feb if I want to enter, then five a week from mid-March. And I can't post them here (or anywhere) until they've had their debut on LAF in the LPL. If I can get the first three rounds sorted then I'll enter, if not I'll have several pictures to share on here as I've got a reasonable head of steam up.

Oh, and I've 'printed' off the deck for my first aether-flyer on the laser printer at school. 'tis cool!
