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.
From DaveD - 10mm Kettledrummer conversions (4 points)
I forgot I had completed these a few weeks ago and had not photographed them. So here is a very small entry. These are two Napoleonic kettle drummers for my friend Gerrys mad collection (The Situation Room blog). He asked to could i do some conversion work involving swapping the heads from the cast version which has mamaluke type headress , to make some specific ones for a Dragoon and Grenadier a Cheval one. So armed with the magnifying light , minidrill and a small soldering iron i was able to swap out the heads and paint them up. They are now ready to add to his 40,000+ figure collection...everytime I think I am mad ... I know that I know someone who has it worse!
They are 10mm Pendraken Miniatures

MilesR - A very nice submission - any chance for some pictures of the new man cave as it comes together? The posts about your Sudanese game was inspiring.
