Anyone who knows Ray Rousell from Don't Throw A One knows how much he
Part 1 of the Challenge. I get to pick out and will also purchase the figures that we are to paint. An unbiased voting system will be constructed to determine who has done the best job in painting the figures.
In an effort to make this more fun I've chosen two figures and you all get to vote on which one we will paint.
Both are from Dark Sword Miniatures and are 32mm heroic scale done in pewter. (Yeah Ray has to paint something larger than 15mm).
She's a beautiful sculpt and a lovely homage to the perfection of the female form.
This mouse is both whimsical and cute and would be a joy to paint in my opinion.
Part 2 of the Challenge. The winner earns the title of Supreme Master of The Universe and gets to write a bragging post (something Mr. Rousell excels at).
Part 3 of the Challenge. The loser then has to paint a figure of the winners choosing. Now to make this even more wacky, the peice the loser paints is to be given to Fran for his birthday in September. Now why did I include the big Irishman in this contest, You just can't deal with one of them without incluing the other. The two go together like custard and cream, like tea and biscuits, like Captain and Crunch. This is also added incentive for Ray to beat me as he can tell me to paint up the most ghastly figure he can find and force me to give it as a gift to Fran.
I am quite possibly mad as a hatter because I have just challenged a man who has painted thousands of figures and is a painter of some repute to a contest while I have painted a grand total of five figures in my lifetime.
Now onto the voting!! Voting will close at 12:00 a.m. BST on Saturday July 7th. So what's it going to be the nude or the mouse. You decide.
