The Great War Painting Club - 100 Miniatures
« on: July 28, 2014, 02:10:45 PM »
One hundred years ago today, the July Crisis culminated with the dual monarchy of Austria-Hungary declaring war on Serbia, plunging the world into the conflict that would become known as The Great War, or First World War. To commemorate that momentous occasion, we present:



The Great War Painting Club





So once more it's time to get your painting helmets on and help us with a big push to get to one hundred figures.  Will it take us four bitter years, or as Captain Blood put it, will it all be over by Christmas?



LAFers, Your Forum Needs You!




I'm sure I don't need to go over the rules of these things again, but then again I better had, as nobody pays any attention to them anyway:

  • It's all about us as a community painting miniatures from the board's setting, which is of course the Great War, in all its many and varied theatres.
  • You may only post one entry a day. That's just so everyone can get a chance to join, and the slower painters don't get squeezed out by the more industrious among us.
  • Once entered, you donít have to post every day. Itís perfectly acceptable to post just one single miniature in order to take part in the game and to become a member of the club.
  • This is not about showing your collection of already painted stuff, so please do post only newly-painted miniatures. Weíre not in a hurry, so take your time.
  • As usual, the standard entry is a single based figure. However we can extend that slightly to include mounts and riders, and singly-based vignette items such as a machine gun and crew, an artillery piece or a vehicle. That sort of thing. But no full unit displays, please.
  • All scales are welcome, and for the smaller ones (18mm and under) it is perfectly fine to submit a stand with several figures as the default entry, as that is roughly equivalent to a single 28mm figure in terms of effort. You may still submit single figures if you choose, however.
  • When we reach 100 entries then the guns shall fall silent once more and the club will be complete.


Good luck, everyone. It's just about time. We go on my whistle.


The badge, for all you badge-hunters out there. Comes in two flavours, with and without the lettering. Use whichever you prefer:

Well I can't take any credit for the idea...



I was afraid of making him too ragged for fear of overdoing it and spoiling the figure, but now I think I didn't make him nearly tatty enough!

Well, it was fashionable in 1914-1918... in 1939-1945, everybody was doing it so it slowly became less and less trendy... ;)

Bugger, I'm on vacation!  lol

Pretty sure I have a few frenchies ready to leave the trenches of oblivion and join the proud ranks, as soon as I disembark from my overseas expedition!  ;)

Love that sepoy!
Ask at the LAF, and answer shall thy be given!
