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.
This is my final post of the Challenge and what a journey I have been on. I've painted 374 foot, 22 mounted, 4 cannon, 1 chariot, 1 Grizzly Walker, 11 flying carpets and a head with legs.
These are another unit of 10 Republican Roman Velites with wolfskins with hand painted shields.
I have also done a final shot of all my completed figs
Although the ACW make up the bulk of the figs and I'm really pleased with them and that I finished them, my favourite is the Rolls Royce armoured car.
I've had a blast and will be eternally grateful to Curt and the rest of you. I plan to be back next year, although my lead mountain now looks like Lincolnshire, like the plains but without the historical interest. I'll have to go shopping, planning on some Carthaginians to fight the rest of my Republican Romans and about a thousand other things.
Finally I'll leave you with a picture of my Curtgeld, Snake Plisken.
A excellent unit of Velites to end your dash to the finish, well done sir (and nice shields btw).
AND what a stonking final shot of your Challenge Collection - a wonderfully varied passel of fantastic miniatures, make no mistake (Snake Plisken, in far off Canada, endorses this collection) A brilliant sign-off - bravo!!
Martin, it has been a pleasure having you along with us and I sincerely hope we can do it again. Take care.
