PAINT WHAT YOU GOT CHALLENGE

 

Firstly I'd like to wish all the followers, commentators and casual drop ins a very merry Christmas !

Now to the challenge, as with last years it is open on scale, and subject matter, it just has to be completed between the 26 th of December, and the 31 st of January, this can include models that were started before this date. You can include scenery and vehicles, you set your targets.

For me I hope to clear some existing projects, and if I'm lucky enough to get some new models for Christmas, I may include some of them as well.

Here are some examples from last years challenge


Some of us are going to try and clear some Judge Dredd miniatures, so if you want to join in on that subject, you are more than welcome, if you would like to take part, leave a comment below, and if yours is a blog I don't follow, leave a link in your comment.

That's all for this post, so until next time stay safe and have fun !

Cheers Dave

    I'm up for this, Dave! :-) Can't manage any Judge Dredd or 2000 A.D. minis, but maybe I should try something with a sci-fi background to it (although not sure what)! Hope you enjoy the Christmas break!

  5. Well, you know I'll be in for this one. If I can get to them, I may even show a bit of solidarity and paint a couple of my Judges. Green or gold pads is the question, though... I guess it's all down to how they're sculpted?

    1. Great to have you on board Azazael, would be great to see some of your judges, always a tough call on pad colours, I know I deviated on a Brit Cit judge, but I thought it looked better ! LOL

    2. Well, even 2000AD are inconsistent on the pad colours! I might leave it to the sculpts and go green on "soft" looking pads and gold on the harder looking ones.

    3. That is very true mate, a lot seems to depend on the artist and inker, and their interpretation, I say go with what you like the look of, as at the end of the day they are your models.
