The release of the new Dakka (in 2007) prompted the return of a classic Dakka tradition: The Dakka Painting Challenge! For those who aren't familiar, these are basically bite-sized painting or modeling competitions that challenge Dakka users to paint and/or convert a model in a short time span (typically around a month) to see who can do the best job. This can be a great way to challenge yourself to take on a project you wouldn't normally bother to do, and if your model is cool enough you might even win a prize!
Typically, entries go through a period of public voting to whittle them down to a final 5, which are then voted on by a panel of private judges to come up with the overall winner(s).
Check out the winner(s) and runners-up below and get inspired! Keep an eye out of the next Dakka Painting and Modeling Challenge in our Painting and Modeling forum and show us all what you're really made of!
Feb 2011 - Dakka Killteam Kompetition
This painting challenge was to model up and paint the coolest looking single Deathwatch Space Marine imaginable or even an entire Deathwatch kill team if they were really ambitious! The Space Marines of the Deathwatch use advanced and often experimental or unique weapons. Their goal is to hunt down and destroy the vile Xenos threat that plagues the empire of mankind.
