Welcome to the Painting Challenge. Here you will find the fabulous, fevered work from miniature painters from around the world. While participants come from every colour, gender, age and nationality, they have at least three things in common: they love miniatures, enjoy a supportive community and they have all taken the Challenge.
This site features the current year's event along with the archives of past Challenges.
Enjoy your visit and please come back and visit us soon.
Four more goblin arrers, again with similar paintjob and with unique hats/hoods. That's seven in total and I still have two more, which I just bought, but even nine is maybe too little for a valid unit. Like Curt noted in the previous post, they are not aiming at the enemy, they are diagonally based. But that just means that they are taking care of the wind.
Bright yellow one looks quite good, the yellow triangles over black trim on red hood is quite striking as well.
And then the two with check patterns, I don't think I can get more classic than that, can I? I never managed to get them right in the 1980s and decided to give a try now. The red hood was first one, it was not so good, but I got it better second time on the black hood. It is not perfect by any means, but looks good at least from certain angle.
Four 28mm models gives me another 20 points. Like I said, I still have two unpainted more, I'll try to paint them during this challenge, but I need to paint something else for a while.
From Curt: They're taking account for the wind? Riiight, of course... :) Teemu, this project of your gets better and better! I love the black and white cheque pattern - can't get more late 80s than that! Wonderful.
