The new Six Month Mountain Reduction Painting Challenge is here. After some thinking, I have decided to join the challenge again this year. The 6MMRPC is a challenge to reduce your painting backlog by painting, posting, and not purchasing new models! In this post I will compile a list of my goals for the challenge.
You can see my posts from the last 6MMRPC here:
This year there have been a few changes to the challenge. You can check out the rules for the 6MMRPC on the Spiderweb of History. Individual purchases to complete a project/army are exempt from the no purchases rule. You can earn extra jokers by completing a project. Finally, the hosts of the challenge are kindly creating a painting contest for the participants.
Last year I really enjoyed the 6MMRPC. It helped me to refrain from buying many models. I reduced my overall backlog. The challenge also spurred me on to create a twitter account and start regularly posting on it. I also managed to get my panzergrenadiers to a playable state.
But enough about last year! Let’s move on to my goals for this challenge.
Late War Panzergrenadiers
I’ve been enjoying playing games with my Normandy panzergrenadier list. I have just a few more models I want to complete for my Late War Panzergrenadiers to make them work for a Fortress Italy list. I’d like to have a list ready for Attack-X in September. I really only need to paint the 8-rads, but I have a few more I would like to complete as well to make my Ultimate List of Doom ™.
3 Panzerschreck bases
2 250 half-tracks
I’d secretly like to play some more Mid-War. I figure that mounted assault should work better in Mid-War than Late War. I also get the chance to field Marders and StuH42s in the same list. And no, I am not painting 10 more half-tracks as 251/1 Cs to be more Mid-War accurate…
3 Pak 40s + command
|The same but different.|
I have a new larger commission that is Part 2 of the Kampfgruppe Peiper Commission I did last year. I have a fair bit of painting to complete over the next month to complete this.
7 Panzer IV
1 251/1 half-track
1 command base
