  13. I hope I can participate this year. I've been doing some commission work and I'm discussing doing some work for Freeblade Miniatures. Painting Frostgrave has been lucrative for me :)

    2. I have a site for my work and eventually I'll put a link up to it. I've agreed to paint some figures for Freeblade, so I'm going to be swamped for awhile yet.

    Today we paint!

  15. So, I look across the moor to 'Challenge Asylum' and I am astonished to see a light on in one of the wards. Upon further investigation I see that inmate Docherty is up to his usual capers, stirring up the mob.

    It's still summer you lunatics! (Well, at least for those with less, ahem, 'colourful' antecedents...) You'll have to wait until November before you can check back in to the institution. Go out and play in the sun you pallid, paint-stained creatures. :)

    5. 'Challenge Asylum'? I think we may have a theme round concept there...

    1. I will be looking for either a 6mm challenge, or a 10mm challenge this year if anyone feels like opposing me.

  18. Last years uncompleted are standing at the ready.. and I already see another move looming around the closing dates.. so should plan myself out better!

  19. Tick tock...
    Whether I join in again or not, it will be great to follow this again and especially see the fellow Antipodeans in action.

  20. Hi, I've just come across the page & the challenge. I'm quite interested but it seems the 'about' page might be broken. I take it we are awaiting this years challenge to begin? so the rules won't be up yet?

    1. Hello Henry! Welcome! The 'About' page is not broken per se, rather I've been neglecting it as much of its information was to be used in an upcoming interview article for 'Wargame Bloggers Quarterly'. Not a real excuse, but there it is.

      As a thumbnail description: I put out the announcement for the Painting Challenge in mid November and we typically kick-off mid December. It runs for three months, over the winter, ending on the first day of spring. Last year we had 88 entrants. This year will see our seventh edition of the Challenge.

      Here is my announcement from last year:

      Feel free to drop me a note if you have any further questions.

  21. Oh dear. We had a frost warning last night! I need to get some priming done before it is too late. I am determined to be better prepared this time!

  22. How time flies...
    I'm really looking forward to the next challenge but I'm unsure whether I'll join the bunch again. I'm simply too slow...

  23. Looking forward to joining in the painting frenzy this winter. Prep already down on the main entry for this year.

    Cheers, Ross

  24. I've been trying to train the 4month old to hold paint brushes for me. Not going well so far...but I think I'll be able to manage!
