Re: 2020 - 100 Mini Challenge

Definitely will be done by the beginning of April as that's when Salute is this year.
I'm currently painting four armies; Albainn, Erainn, Far Thule and Connand.
I need to build a gaming board as well, lolz, I was supposed to be taking it easy on the Darklands hobby this year.
