Post subject:  Reattempting a BF&S 100 day challenge

Last year I decided to make a big effort to assemble and paint some of my BF&S minis. I did this by following a self-imposed 100 day challenge. Nothing too onorous, just a commitment to do something everyday for 100 days in a row (barring illness or travel for work). Sometimes I would get a lot done, but more often it was just cleaning up or preparing a few models at a time.

I managed about 60 days before other commitments interfered, but in that time I managed to assemble, undercoat and base 219 cavalry (73 bases), 135 infantry (45 bases) and 6 light artillery.

On 1st Jan, I restarted the 100 day challenge after seeing Samu's awesome Muscovites. Any day that I play a game of BF&S now also counts towards the 100 days.

So far I have played a demo game (Swedes and Tartars) and assembled some mounted szekely handgunners, seimeni and haiduks. I want to have a fully painted Transylvanian task force ready when the rules are published.

I will try to post some pictures later in the challenge.

Thanks again Samu for getting me motivated!

Wonderful! Just keep on painting and share pictures of your army.

Thanks for the compliments.

Btw I'm also painting Transylvanians atm, but only a skirmish force. I'm trying to get them ready for grand tournament.

Kiitos ja moi.

20 days in and the challenge is going well so far.

I have posted an update and a few photos on my new blog at Gamineering.

One-third of the way through the challenge and I have not missed a day yet.

A few of the 'work-in-progress' Transylvanians (I realise these are a bit dull when only painted black...):


The Transylvanians with the lances took a little longer to assemble because the lances need to be cut to size and the beads added. They look great when fully assembled and I particularly like the Light Szekely miniatures for some reason.

I have posted an update and a few more photos on my blog at gamineering.com. There are also a couple of photos of some 'ready to play' painted Reiters purchased from Wargamer last year. Hopefully, I can do as well with my painting.

That's an impressive amount of undercoated miniatures ready for paint. Cleaning, assembling and undercoating always takes up more work than previously planned, so good on you getting this finished! I look forward to the first update of painted miniatures!
