Seasons Greetings from Scrivsland.
The Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge XI has now been running a few days so I thought I ought to update Scrivsland with the progress so far.
My first entry was a small group of Napoleonic French officers and ADC's
All three figures are from Perry Miniatures, the two on foot from the Line Infantry Officers advancing set and the one on horseback from the Mounted ADC’s pack.
Day two of the Challenge saw me venture into the Chambers of Challenge for some bonus points with my entry for The Aquifier with a duckpond of all things!
The final entry before my break for the Holidays is another Chambers of Challenge entry, with Hugh Jarse in The Chamber of Darkness.
On deck at the moment are many more Napoleonic figures and I hope to have at least a unit of light dragoons finished before the end of the year.

Challenge XI is almost upon us and I've not picked up a paint brush since the weekend, instead concentrating on getting figures cleaned up and primed in preparation.
Looking at the bonus's available in the Chambers of Challenge XI I've made a small order on Eureka Miniatures to help me grab a few bonus points in the dungeon while maintaining the Napoleonic theme that I plan to have run strongly through my efforts over the next three months.
I've got a whole load of stuff already prepped and primed, including a unit of British Light Dragoons and a French Infantry battalion already stuck on bottle caps ready to paint, there are a few commanders already to go, and for when I fancy a break from Napoleonics, a Gambrel Barn, Han Solo and a Renault R-35. Yes that Southern Comfort mug really does contain two battalions of Hanoverians!
Yesterday evening was spent building a battery of Victrix Artillery ready for priming today, the anticipation is palpable.
There are also some figures I prepared for last years challenge that were never done, so it looks like I'll keep busy these next three months.

Last week I painted up the mounted Pierre Ducos that Victoria bought for me, this week I painted up the foot version.
