Dakka Painting Challenge 9 - To INFINITY and Beyond!

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!

Apr 2012 - To INFINITY & Beyond!

This Dakka Painting Challenge pointed the spotlight at the game of Infinity. Infinity is a 28mm metal miniatures game that simulates combat and special operations in a science fiction environment with Manga aesthetics. Infinity miniatures are characterized by the high quality and detail of their modeling, the dynamism of their postures and their futuristic aesthetic...in other words, the perfect subjects for a Painting Challenge.

This challenge drew, by far, the largest number of entries we ever had. The combination of amazing subject miniatures and the ever increasing popularity of the game surely helped contribute.
