The Lead Painters League Entries (or what I’ve done in 2018 so far)

The Lead Painters League is an annual competition run by the fine folk on the Lead Adventure Forum. I’ve long admired the dedication and quality of the entries for this (which has now been running for something like 13 years) and many of my favourite painters have been competitors in the past. It’s been a ‘bucket-list’ thing for years – I even had an abortive attempt a few years back but that was sabotaged by a house-move.

This time I prepared a little in advance and was genuinely suprised and delighted to come second against some wonderful competition. I feel like a bit of a fraud to have placed so highly in all honesty and need to work on my story-telling aspects next time.

It’s quite a tough challenge for a painter with such inconsistent focus as me. Nine teams of at least 5 figures each over nine weeks, ideally in some sort of scenic setting. In my case the final result is a pretty good summary of my current projects although I must confess I’m a little burnt-out by the end and fancy painting something very different. Perhaps some SciFi would be a nice change …
