Wargamers Consortium has started a monthly painting challenge
. The idea is, you make a promise to paint and/or build a given number of models at the beginning of the month, and then report back both on your progress and if and when you manage to complete it.
Hit the link above for all the rules and check out what you can win.
I have taken up the challenge and doing 20 Samurai. If I get that done then I will add 10 Samurai cavalry to get extra points in the challenge.
