VIII Painting Challenge is over :-(

Time flies and three months later Curt's Annual Painting Challenge is (sadly) over. This is my third year participating and probably the one I've enjoyed the most. It's also a good opportunity to accelerate on one of my annual painting projects which I tend to focus around one theme.

This year was Austrian Napoleonics, which I've been slowly advancing now for several months now. I took the opportunity to do some research on less known units and bumped with the Vienna Volunteers, one of the most outstanding militia units in the 1809 campaign.

This is a summary of the output this year

What a Tanker!

Our friends at TooFatLardies has just put in pre-order its new set of rules "What a Tanker!" which as the name implies is a 2WW skirmish armour battle book.  There is a very attractive offer for the hard copy, the markers and the pdf version bundle at GBP 24.0 representing a 40% discount on the headline prices. Release is scheduled on April 9th, just after Easter.

If you like to read a little bit more about the rules before jumping, take a look at this post released in the official Lard Island blog today. They seem easy to learn and fun to play, and surely if you are (like me) a 2WW aficionado at any scale, you'll have plenty of models ready to use.
