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 BenitoM: British Airborne Second Section (45 points)
This week entry is
very similar to that of the previous Thursday, as I have painted the second
section (or squad) of my British Airborne platoon for Chain of Command.
As explained last
week each section has two teams, one rifle team (5 Lee Enfieldsrifles and 1 Sten SMG) and the LMG team
(3-crew Bren LMG), led by a junior leader.
What it is
different this time is the model manufacturer. So far in this Challenge I have
been presenting models from Warlord. In this case the models are from WargamesFoundry. These are somewhat old; but as the Perry Brothers designed them, the
quality of the sculpting is really good.
All this models
wear combat helmet and have very light equipment, in contrast with the plastic
models of the previous entries. The WF range has another reference with redberets if you like to add some variety to your units.
This Thursday’s entry adds another 45 points
(5points x 9 models in 28mm) to my Challenge score, increasing the total to 300
points or 40% of my 750 target, Not too bad considering this is the fourth week
of the Challenge.
More splendid para camo! Lovely sculpts that you have more than done justice to and it sounds like you will need to up your total in the not too distant future! 45 well earned points it is! All the best Iain
