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: KentG - Napoleonic 28mm French skirmishers & Old Guard (625pts)
First up this week we have all the skirmishers from the nine boxes of infantry that I've been working through, strange thing is I've never done skirmishers before which is a bit weird
so for a bit of a laugh I've done them three different ways.
There are Front Rank, Warlord Games, Perry miniatures as well as Victrix in this post.
First up 4 larger stands, I just like the idea of these larger groupings.
Always loved the look of French light infantry but man, did I have to work hard
to get all that piping done! It just seemed to take forever, but it is really worth the extra time and effort.
Then 6 bases with two minis per stand.
Then just a heap of singles.
Then, on Thursday, I decided I needed to have more figures done so I started
the box of old guard that I had on the shelf. At first I thought: ok I'll just wack a few coats on
and they will be right, but as per normal once started I couldn't help myself
and found in the end I've added all the extra highlights.
So between the Old Guard and skirmishers we have 125 x 28mm figures
for a total of 625 points
I won't say it I'll let the GIF speak for itself. Your Napoleonic escapades are a true inspiration Kent, I am still gobsmacked at your pace and output. These light infantry of yours are just awesome, I love the way you have played with the grouping/ basing of them. I can't wait to see what you come up with for the remaining days of the Challenge. Great work mate!
