Grey Sunday

May 29, 2010

Sunday June 13th is Grey Sunday – at the painting session on this day we will be asking members to only paint with pots with grey in the title – plus one black and one white each. (You can also use any mediums you like, such as glaze and metallic medium)

There will be lots of sharing, so it’s a great way to try new ranges and see just how many different types of grey there are available, and how much variety of colour there is to be had in the grey range. You’ll be surprised.

Bring you grey paints and a mini to paint over approx 3 hours. (Prime – in any colour, in advance), and lets see what happens.

This is a just for fun event. Photos of finished minis will be posted on this site afterwards.

If you can’t attend the Patriot Games, Sheffield painting session you can still join in – make sure to take some photos!

Magnificent mummy in just 3 colours

September 19, 2009

As many of you are aware, the September painting challenge has been to use only 3 pots of paint. I think the toughest part of this challenge is picking the right model and combination of colours.

Edward Nicholson has taken photos of his entry every step of the way, to show us just how he’s painted his mummy.

The deadline for this challenge is September 27th, so there is still time to take part. Over to Edward…

New t-shirt and a new challenge

April 20, 2009

The May Painting challenge is going to be starting on May 1st and running until Sunday May 31st, and the theme for next month is going to be:

Paint a unit – minimum 5 models

These models should belong together, not just be 5 random models! So think rank and file, a squad or unit or skirmish group or something similar. Models also need to be based.

New t-shirt on the SI store today. You can now get the SI logo on coloured shirts, and you can pick the colour shirt you like. The logo appears in white, red and matt silver. Ladies version to follow soon.
