Yes, I know May has only just started – but I’m announcing what the June painting challenge is going to be early, so that everyone has time to get hold of a model!

The June (as in June 1st start date) painting challenge will be to paint a Rackham miniature, theme will be “spirit of Rackham style”.

Rackham – makers of the beautiful confrontation minis (among many) has suffered and fallen heavily to the financial crisis and has destroyed the moulds to it’s metal miniatures. They may still continue their pre-painted plastics, but I’m not 100% on that.

But before they disappear forever, and to prevent folks from saying “I never got a chance to paint a Rackham mini” we thought it was a good time to give you all the opportunity.


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.
