December painting challenge: Wounded


The theme for the December painting challenge is: Wounded

The deadline will be: Sunday 9th January

The extended deadline means there’s plenty of time to fit your entry in amongst the festivities.

So, the theme is Wounded – what does that mean?

It means you can go one of two ways:

  1. A figure/vehicle with an injury
  2. A figure suffering an emotional wound – this will be much harder to show


  • A pirate with an eye patch/wooden leg
  • A solider coming home from battle
  • A figure with bandaged wounds
  • A vehicle with some serious damage
  • A zombie attack

But I’m sure you’ll come up with something interesting.

It’s a chance to try out some blood effects if the wound is fresh, or scar effects if the wound is older, maybe think about painting the flesh a bit paler because the figure is feeling drained and unwell.

Remember, you can enter any miniature from any manufacturer, at any scale – even vehicles, busts or dioramas. Just follow the rule, and paint it during the challenge month.


Here are some pieces from the Coolminiornot gallery that might inspire you.
