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 remember to come back soon.
From SeanS - Bretonnian Foot Knight Standard Bearer and Mounted Knight (16 Points)
I know it's small, but this is the post that almost wasn't. These two are the only ones out of a total of 26 that I started after Dec. 20th for a thing we're doing with Iannick over at the Old World Army Challenge. They required some additional assembly and I almost gave up on the whole month several times as I wasted time doing things that turned out to be totally unnecessary.
In the picture I can see where I put my thumb in wet paint on the base, I had trouble with the lighting in the room and was rushing a tad while finishing these. The banners need a little more work, but I'm not certain that they'll survive the trip back home in my luggage, so they're good enough.
Only 15 points by my count, but you eat an elephant one bite at a time. Thanks for looking.
Welcome back to the Challenge, Sean! OldHammer Bretonnians, very cool. I like the deep red you've used for these two and the raw wood lance is the business, none of this fancy barber pole malarky.
'I wasted time doing things that that turned out to be totally unnecessary.' Oh man, I'm completely with you on this one, Sean. I often feel so scattered that its amazing that I get anything done at all. With that being said you've done a great job on these two. Now, let's see the rest.
15 points, plus another for the flag and pennant. Well done Sean!
