Welcome to the Painting Challenge. Here you will find the fabulous, fevered work from miniature painters from around the world. They are of every colour, gender, age and nationality, but all these people have at least two things in common: they love miniatures and they have all taken the Challenge.
This site features the current year's event along with archives of past Challenges.
Enjoy your visit and please come back soon.
From ValeryN: A Trio of WWII Soviet KVs (18 Points)
My first job for the Challenge - 3 heavy tank KV-1e for my army of the USSR from Flames of War gaming system.
From the beginning I took up painting just behind a few units, but I realized that it is better to do them one by one.
Red stars, tactical numbers and the slogans on the turret - a decal from Battlefront Miniatures.
Unfortunately, the inscriptions on the far tank contains an error - there is one extra letter "k" :)
First, welcome to the Challenge Valery - it's great to have you with us.
What a lovely trio of KV beasties. I'm very similar to yourself, in that I often paint figures one at a time instead of in an assembly line. It's a bit of a slog, but nothing gets missed and it's nice to get something done in a shorter period of time.
These KV's look great, and the decals, no matter how misspelled, add a sense of authenticity about them. I'm sure these will cause no end of problems for your opponents in your future games.
