WAMP is an online forum for miniature painters, arguably the friendliest one out there. The Ladder Challenge is a friendly, members challenge, for bragging rights for a position on the pecking order. I've never participated, but I felt the temptation, when Scott was fishing for a challenge that would coincide with another WAMP competition, this one a sponsored challenge by Wyrd Miniatures. Well, what better opportunity to push me to paint my Ramos faction!
Now, Scott is more of a display painter. He's played wargames in the past, but even then, he's painted each figure one at a time, as if he were painting for display. So it took some convincing, but he agreed to paint an entire faction of at least 25 Soulstones. We have about 8 weeks, I think, to complete the crew. Scott picked the Ortega clan.
Here is the link to the thread, where he suggests the challenge. I need to create another thread, where the gauntlet is formally thrown and where the trash-talk and WIP can be captured. I'll copy a link to that when I get it set up.
