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 Jake - 20mm WWII American Infantry (184 Points)
We always play a large battle at the end of the year and make it a project for our group. So this year it was Normandy late 1944 in 20mm. I had to paint over 60 Americans from AB miniatures mixed with Blitz. I knew it was going to be tough to paint them all in the painting challenge and be ready in time for the game. So I painted 24 before and finished 46 of them in the painting challenge making 184 points.
Here they are just after the battle.
Yesterday we played a great game of Battlegroup Overlord. Mike and me played the 1st US Infantry division while Rob van S joined us with his excellent Brits. On the opposite site were Mark, Rob P and Sam with some Germans and a lot of PANZERS! We also had some support if you can call it that (Shermans, Stuarts and Greyhounds).

Below are some pictures of my troops in action (although they saw little of it because it became a real tank battle).
