Good eevening everyone,
The figure challenge group build will run from 01/06/2016 until 31/12/19, well done to the folks that signed up and for those that didn't there's plenty of room. Normal house rules apply any figures/busts entered must be unbuilt and unpainted prior to their entry, your first photo should be of the unbuilt kit.
see you all on 01/06/19 regards Jim

Wow! 6 months to paint a figure...I'm in. Have lots in my stash and it'll be a good exercise to start and complete some figures for my planned dioramas.

Cheers,
Richard

Me in too!

A couple of questions, Jim.
Can we do multiple figures, i.e a group, or are we to do just one at a time stand alone?

Also can they (It) be incorporated into some sort of diorama should the builder wish to?

Thanks.
Ron

Hi Ron,
When I made the suggestion for this group build I mentioned a maximum of 10 figures which was a bit ambiguous, what I meant was you culd build as many as you want over the timespan but the maximum in a group should be 10 as to how you display them is up to you but if they are of a diorama then the building of any vehicles/buildings should not be part of the GB. For example I have a set of Stalingrad figures that will be used with as part of a diorama later on but I will only include the figures in the GB.
I hope that clarifies things Jim

With 6 months to work on this I think I might get something done. Add me to the list.

I would like to join Jim if I may. After extensive help and advice from Tim and George I am going to have my first attempt at 28mm figures. Its gonna be a train wreck but where better to crash and burn than on your GB :smiling5: . At least I will have fun and learn a great deal in the progress.

Just checking Jim. Is this build for any figure/small group in any scale, or is it limited to larger scales?

Hi Dave,
You can build in any scale in groups of no more than 10 or singular
