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.
These undead have been sat undercoated on my workbench for a few years and are intended for my very slow burning attempt to rebuild my long lost and much loved Warhammer Quest set. They will also be great for 7th Voyage and Dungeon Saga games... so nice and versatile.
Ages ago a couple of us were lucky enough to go on a few educational sessions at GW hq. One of these was run by the sculpting team and involved taking bits from the Vampire Counts skeleton set, some Empire Greatsword figures and some greenstuff. These three champions were my creations once I got home from the course. I can't bring myself to paint the one we created on the day though as it is a really nice reminder of a fun day. The most insane thing I've ever seen was one of the GW guys sculpting individual chain links and making an actual (in scale) chain that moved and flowed properly! None of this pre-made metal chain for him!
Next up we have 6 bulk standard skeleton spearmen with their champion
And 5 swordsmen with their champion
That totals 16 skeletons to add to the growing pile of painted models from this year's challenge.
These are very cool minis Paul! That GW field trip must have been awesome - I'm always so impressed when I see sculptors at work, creating little pieces of art from pure imagination. It's pretty humbling stuff.
I really like the look of these guys with their shattered swords, bits and pieces of armour and rotted kit. Very characterful. Will we be treated to more or is this the lot of them Paul?
