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.
Once again here we have more Dragoons only three boxes left to go.
I started these a few weeks ago, lucky for me or there wouldn't
have been an entry this week, hardly had a chance to get near the paint brushes.
I have to say there is just something beautiful about the style of the
dragoon uniform and its a pleasure to paint.
The figure below is an Aide-de-camp to Murat.
A few weeks back you might remember that I made a rather silly mistake,
I glued half of the officers horse to half a normal horse. These to Aid-de-camps, thanks to somegreen stuff, are what I managed to create with them.
The figure below isAide-de-camp to a full Marshal, full dress 1807.
So a total of 14 x 28mm Cavalry is 140 points.
You know Kent, I really agree with you that the dragoon uniform is one of the nicest of the French cavalry of the period. For me it comes 3rd after Hussars on 1st and lancers on 2nd place. While your dragoons are every bit as brilliant as your earlier regiments, I am so glad that you "botched" those horses because those ADC's are absolutely stunning. So another well earned 140 points to try and keep you at the head of our score sumary will be added tonight.
