Fly the Flag – the Results

December 6, 2009

The winner of this month’s Merit Award will now be revealed…

The scoring works like this, voters mark each entry (except their own) out of 10 for themeĀ  (Fly the Flag) and style. These scores are added together and divided by the number of voters to create a total, average score. The highest score wins the Merit Award trophy, sponsored by Jonathan Shaw of BMF painting.


October painting challenge

September 30, 2009

The theme for the October challenge is: Winter’s touch

This challenge starts on Thursday Oct 1st and ends on Sunday Oct 25th, which should be plenty of time. Those of you who followed our vote for the Sept – Nov challenges in August should be well prepared and ready to get stuck in.

We will be voting for the Dec – March themes in the next few weeks – so keep and eye out.

Anyway, back to Winter’s touch, there are no restrictions on this challenge – just meet the theme. This means any model, any scale – you just need to paint it during October 09.


July theme picked

June 23, 2009

You voted and you chose HERO to be the theme for the July painting challenge.

With 19 votes it was the clear winner, with YELLOW and 3 COLOUR SCHEME coming joint second with 10 votes each.

Only 1 vote was cast for SWAMP and no one voted for FIRE/FLAMES.

The July painting challenge will start on July 1st – so please hold of starting until then, but you do have a few days to sort out a mini to paint.

Thanks for voting, we look forward to seeing what you will produce next month – don’t forget to post your WIPS!

Vote for the July theme

June 16, 2009

Yup, it’s that time again – we need to vote on the theme for the July painting challenge.

Remember each challenge is a chance to push yourself, try something new or practice a technique.
It should be fun and you can always ask for advice from the group.
