Is One Thing A Week Dead?
So I'm still trying to get everything back on track following my whirlwind trip home for Wallshammer's wedding. This morning I took a peek at the Privateer Press Forums, to see what's going on with the contest that kicked-off my love of contests: The One Thing A Week Challenge. Only to find it's buried 4 pages back, and I'm the last 2 posts on it. I guess that means it's finally ground to a halt. On the bright side, since I was there from the first week, and never missed a week, I declare myself the winner! You may shower me in adulations now. Hello? Anyone? Awww, damn internet contests with no prizes...
False-bruised-ego aside, this was a fantastic Challenge, and I lament its passing. I'm going to keep going, obviously, but I think I'll be scaling back the amount of Privateer Press products I'm painting. I've already painted more than I can use in a standard game, and have built several different lists for Circle. In fact I'm getting down to about a dozen models in my collection that are unpainted. So I'm going to stretch that out a little bit to make it last the year of Tales of Skirmish Gamers. But it's just not going to be the same.
Fare thee well One Thing a Week Challenge, we hardly knew ye.
