The Fourth Bonus Theme: 'Myth' is Now Open

Our next theme is 'Myth'. I've really had fun looking over the entries as they came in over the past few days. When you get over to the theme gallery you'll be treated to a bewildering assortment of personalities, gods and monsters all fitting each hobbyist's idea of 'myth'.

I'm going to perform a bit of an experiment and and publish each entry as its own post. This way visitors can leave comments on any entries they choose to. This has been something that has been bothering me since I started the theme rounds last year, that being the unintentional neutralizing effect of placing everyone's submissions in one post. A lot of people put an incredible amount of work in their theme submissions and it seems a shame that viewers can't easily pick them out for special comment. This new format is to see if this can be addressed.

Anyway, we'll give it a go and see how it pans out.

Please remember to take the time to vote for all your favourite entries on the right panel survey.

Thanks and enjoy the submissions!

From AlanD - 6mm ECW Royalists (92 Points)

It has been a big week for tiny men, as I managed to get finished another 5 regiments of Royalist foot from Baccus for Paul of the Man Cave's army.

I'm getting to the satisfying point with these little chaps where I've done enough for them to look very rewarding en masse. If you haven't tried painting 6mm before, I suggest giving it a go, but withholding judgement until you've painted about 6 or so bases. Then line them all up together, and I think you'll find yourself going 'oooh!'

Five bases with 36 figures each means 180 figures, which should give me 90 points.
