You know the year is coming to an end when Curt from Analogue Hobbies releases the roll call for the Painting Annual Challenge. This is a very friendly international miniature painting contest hosted by Curt (a.k.a. The Snow Lord) and his lovely wife Sarah, with the help of a bunch of voluntary minions, extending through the bleak winter months.
You score points for each painted and based mini as well as get extra points completing a set of challenges. Last year, the challenges took a twist and we were all set to explore different dwellings in the mysterious Island X; and after a great success, this year (marking the 11th year of the contest) we are bound to explore the terrifying pits and dungeons below the Island is search of the Snow Lord's Altar.
