Pendraken Painting Competition 2018

Once again it's that time of year for the Pendraken painting competition. Given my painfully slow painting output, it's nice to have a little stimulus to put some time aside for painting. Sadly the recent hot weather meant that it was almost impossible to paint, as it was drying on the brush almost before I got to the model. Luckily a few cool days plus some other models painted earlier in the year meant that I at least had something to enter. so without further ado...

Forlorn Hope for use with 'The Pikemen's Lament'

As always, there are some stunning examples on show in the competition. Frankly some of them beggar belief and it is always a joy to see how well 10mm wargames figures can be painted. No idea how well I'll do, but I enjoy the painting when time, and the weather permit.

I'm hoping to be able to return to the wargames table soon, as a whole host of factors have prevented me getting my toy soldiers out onto the table. So fingers crossed I may actually have something to report in the next week or so...


  1. Can't choose between the biplane and the T-35 tank (okay, the tank!). For what may be a temporary break in the weather … hurrah.

    I have a dropper bottle with 80% water and 20% acrylic flow improver, a drop on my palette has been keeping my paint wet during the hot weather.

    1. Always tricky to choose this sort of stuff. I must say all of the Inter-War kit is great fun to paint.

  2. Very nice indeed


    Take care


  3. Lovely work Steve. It’s good to see some of the interwar tanks making an appearance, they’re too often overlooked and forgotten

    1. Thanks Richard. I do love the British Inter-War kit.
