陷阱与钟摆(The Pit and the Pendulum)Xian Jing yu Zhong Bai – Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge #11






Here's the link for my blog with a few more pics, if you are so inclined.


This is my second entry into the AHPC #11.
My take on the next chamber, "The Pit and the Pendulum" is a Chinese version of the tale. I thought about the theme and not having any medieval or fantasy figures in my collection this would suite the bill. My good friend Mad Guru from Maiwand Day blog fame asked his wife to translate for me. This is her translation, thank you Xinhua.

The Challenge is in its 11th season, check out this link for data, challenge history, and some of the awesome entries. These are some very talented and imaginative painters and hobbyists!

The participants gain points for each completed figure and terrain piece. The larger the figure or terrain piece the more points are awarded. Here is the map of the challenge. Each chamber has a theme, if the entry is within the stated theme 20 additional points will be added to the score for that chamber. Four chambers must be completed before descending to the next level. It's a pretty cool idea.

Great work.

Well, someone is having a bad day!

That is a fantastic piece of work – love the banner!

Wow, really nice diorama and flag.

Not a fan of execution scenes. I prefer clean wars for my wargames.

Great work, Sarge! Like Frederick above, I especially love the banner, even more impressive to learn that it was homemade!

@Legionarius: though it may be unlikely, the guy down on his knees may yet be rescued before the blade falls.

Thank you for the comments and feedback folks. I love the banner too, with The Flag Dude selling his business of awesome flags to a bloke across the pond and only selling at cons sporadically I had to take matters into my hands, so to speak, and make my own.

@Legionarius, neither am I, however I needed to fulfill the theme of the next chamber of the painting challenge and this fit the bill. I don't even know how many 10's of years I've had this vignette sitting in the lead mountain.

And like Mad Guru said, his fate is not yet sealed!

Awesomely painted.

@Umpapa, Thank you!

Superb painting, the clothes, the banner, the poor, soon to be deceased… or will he! The whole scene is just top notch, kudos to you sir!!

@jambo1, thank you very much for your feedback! I really took my time on these as they are more of an objective marker and vignette than front line troops. Can the rescue party make it on time to rescue this poor fellow……
