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.
Saturday's Information Bulletin from the Ministry of Truth
I'm very pleased. We're almost a month into the Challenge and I think
things are moving along pretty smoothly. Over two thirds of our
participants have submitted entries and from these entries we've been
treated to loads of amazing miniatures - over 16,000 points worth. So I
extend a big 'Thank You' for all your enthusiasm, support and hard work.
On an administrative note, we have a new Challenger joining us. LeeH
is coming aboard, replacing StacyS who unfortunately can't continue due
to pressing family commitments. My best wishes go to Stacy in that
things go well, and I hope to see you join us in a future Challenge.
For those who don't know him, our new recruit Lee is known in the hobby blogosphere as Big Lee from Big Lee's Miniature Adventures.
He is also a charter member of that glamorous gaming group from
Gravesend: 'Postie's Rejects'. Lee will be joining 'Tamsin's Tuesday
Teamsters' and will be aiming for a 300 point target. Please join me in
welcoming Lee aboard!
As a final note, in regards to future Theme Round submissions, feel free to submit your work to me via email if you want to make sure nobody peaks before the 'big reveal'. It's not a necessity, but some people have asked if this can be accommodated and it is no problem at all.
Alright brush-jockeys, I'll return you back to our regular Saturday programming.
