More challenge preparation

Hi All,

Today I finished the sorting of most of my plastic and lead. I still have some random loose figures I received from a member of the Old School Wargamers Yahoo group and my various 54mm stuff. I hope to have a reasonable point total to send off to Curt soon.


I hope to have a page detailing my challenge progress, much like Loki's here. Dux Homunculorum mentioned that he is being subjected to spreadsheet intimidation in his post here, which got me thinking about the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge Spreadsheet Challenge.

But seriously, I will be posting my spreadsheet which you will be free to take ideas from should you desire. I hope that you will contribute your own ideas on what is helpful in organizing yourself for the task at hand. Of course I really should be prepping figures, rather than dawdling at the computer.

I also thought the view numbers of the last few days were interesting.

A priapatetic spike in page views.

A picture is worth 500 views I guess.

  1. *Big* piles of stuff! If only model figures weren't so cheap these days :-) !

    That sort of picture might be worth 500 views in the occasional article, but I suspect your readership would change if such things were repeated frequently.

    1. Hi Hugh, the cost ratio is one reason why I went with 1/72.

      You're right. I don't want to alienate my regular readers and commenters. I just wish that posts where I actually said something witty or accomplished something in the hobbywere as widely viewed.

  2. Thanks for the plug Sean, the only problem I have is sticking to the plans rigidly to ensure I meet my goal the spreadsheet cant enforce my wandering attention span ;)

    1. You're welcome Andrew. I liked the presentation on your blog very much and it was high time I got my collection sorted. I'm hoping that some spreadsheet wizards will chime in with some great idea I haven't thought of. For instance, I like you're idea of including when you purchased the figures, although many of mine are from 1990 :(

    Good luck Sean and start priming!

    Greetings
    Peter
