This is what my new personal best of 1228 points looks like (previous best was 850 odd in AHPC IV). I participated in all five Bonus rounds, received a Runner Up position in the Armour Bonus Round and my Red Skull figure was nominated (not by me!) in the Challenger's Choice voting. Very humbling.

I really enjoyed painted figures as gifts - these were a true highlight for me.

Finally, I was delighted to be part of the AHPC team behind the scenes, in my capacity as Tuesday co-minion with Dux. It took a bit of time away from my painting, but it was so very satisfying to be on Curt's staff to help make this great blogosphere activity happen. In return Curt has very kindly painted this figure for me, which I'm absolutely thrilled with.

Curt says: This model is a resin multipart from Brother Vinni's Miniatures While I find most of his offerings a little too, um, turgid, he does offer some wonderful Renaissance and Sci-Fi figures.
This fellow was a bit too cleanly kitted-out to my way of thinking, so I added a slung blanket roll and chest pack to make him look a little more a seasoned Wasteland Wanderer. I did up the base similar to my Metro 2033 stuff, with hi-contrast A-bomb ash, shattered brick and a partially buried I-beam for him to trip over.
AHPC VII - so long and thanks for all the fish.
