Last year Greg and I ran the Duelling Paintbrushes Challenge. This year we're back for Duelling Paintbrushes 2: Mexican Paintoff. And it's gotten bigger. Much bigger. Not only will it be longer, and not only will we paint more figures, there will be more participants. Much more. And probably a mini-tournament at the end to give our newly painted forces their baptism of fire.

Dueling Paintbrushes 2: Mexican Paintoff is a painting challenge. The rules are simple.

  • Start painting November 1st.
  • Finish painting November 30th.
  • You must paint a complete, legal wargames force/army/warband/gang which is the minimum ‘sensible’ size for your chosen system (eg: 1000 points of Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40,000 or Bolt Action, 15 points of Warmachine/Hordes)
  • You can assemble and undercoat before hand. Or you can be arrogant and do it all during November and make everyone else feel slow.
  • Time permitting; you can add further figures and units or terrain features themed to your army.
  • Everyone who meets the challenge is declared the victor.
  • Everyone who fails to meet the challenge is declared a weedy git and scorned by those who win.
  • There will be a mini-tournament at the end where participants will field their armies. We don’t know when just yet, but it WILL happen. Oh yes. 
  • Those without an opponent because of their chosen system will play against each other in an epic session of ‘Eat Poop You Cat.’
  • You must report your progress on your blog. Unless you are embarrassed and private in which case you can mutter about it on Facebook where only the select few will ever see your genius.
  • Until Greg steals your images and puts them on his blog exposing you to the full glare of public scrutiny.
  • Please add the blogs of all other participants to your Blogroll.
  • Use of Hippos has been authorized.
  • The person to paint the most figures will probably be Owen. That does not mean he wins. He just plays with Skaven.
