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.
As it's the festive season I wanted to paint up some gifts for fellow members of the Madison Tea & Crumpets wargames club. Having some Perry Miniatures artillery crew left-over from the last couple of sets I painted for myself I decided to do a Union gun crew for chum Drew.
These are based individually for use in our Sharp Practice games, Drew shall have to add his own gun and base them to match his own collection.
For visuals, here they are crewing a 12lb Napoleon from my own collection.
Points would be 25, but as I am letting Drew base them to match his own collection that is reduced to 18.75. I'll also claim these in the North and South duel.
These are a lovely set of Yank gunners, Paul, and I'm sure your friend Drew will be delighted to receive them. For points, I'm going to pop them up to 25 points being as they are gifts. Well done!
