30 Days 30 Miniatures - Cavalry Painting Challenge

This evening will be starting a themed 30 days 30 miniatures painting challenge.

The theme is cavalry a personal dread for the painting table.

The rules of the challenge are simple:

  • To paint 30 cavalry figures including riders in 30 days
  • The figures can be partly painted as the main point is to complete figures that have been forgotten
  • Basing is not necessary to count as completed
  • Any scale is good
  • Too have fun
  • The end date is set by your start date - 8th September will be the end date here
  • To post updates as often as possible
  • Lastly to show a round up post with a group picture of everything.

Below is a picture of the painting table as it currently stands

and the following will make up part of this challenge:

  • 28mm Gripping Beast Normans/Christian Spanish
  • 15mm Gladiator Ayyubid Ghulams
  • 6mm Rapier Greek Heavy Cavalry

Not shown are some Moors for SAGA and Prodromoi for the Macedonians. Well over the total of 30 figures. 

Take up your brushes, pick a theme and finish off some long stalled project. 

Cheers for now.
