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.
Since last year I provided an image of me portraying an American militia man I figured an image of me in the uniform of Regiment Saintonge(complete with a terrible mustache I won't do again) part of the French Expedition to North America during the American War of Independence. Here is my challenge review I'm it a project at a time so you can see the miniatures.
My Pikeman's Lament project. The Gray regiment on the left, and the Blue Regiment on the right. In the center we have skirmishers, and the combined pikemen of the Gray and Blue Regiments between the two musketeer wings
To the back we have the Armored Pikemen, and the two units of horsemen and the officer.
Here we have Bess, her husband Bill the butcher and their motley crew of "clubmen."
Milady and her servants a better sort of Civilians.
Three Ruffians ready for some trouble.
Firebrand monks ready to battle things that go bump in the night.
The Sleepy hollow militia who are probably facing those same things that go pump in the night.
Four swashbucklers ready for trouble.
Vikings with loot in hand and ready to get more!
The Frostgrave collection mostly bad guys Gnolls, Skeletons, Zombies, Ghouls an ice toad and Drizit and Guenhwyvar.
The Imgi-Nation troops in 15mm force of Drconia on the left and D'Argent on the right.
Close up on the Draconian troops.
My entry for West the French 75s.
And my other world War I project for the challenge (I had plans for more but not everything goes according to plan)

One of my favorite pieces my ruined tower repurposed as home for a band of hearty adventures exploring Frosgrave.
My entry for East and intrepid mariner.
I will finish off with my Curtgeld done in partnership with JohnM. My thanks to all who took part especially John for partnering with me. Milles for his fine handling of the Monday Minion duties. I would especially like to thank Curt and Sara for hosting. Taking part in this event is one of the highlights of my hobby year and I hope that with the new baby I can still take part next year but probably in a reduce fashion. Thank again for all the good wishes and compliments.
