With the subterranean foes vanquished our heroes were tasked with finding their dark Overlord. A simple parchment scrap found in the villain's lair ordering the raid on the dwarven mine told our heroes that this band had not been acting alone. The order was signed with the darkest of dark sigils, the mark of Lord Johann Von Pickford.

Pickford was a cruel and terrible master wizard, tasking his loyal minions with tedious jobs that took them endless hours and then mocking the result. His dark arts had created some of the foulest most twisted beings in existence and our brave adventurers knew that to get to Johann they would need to fight their way past hordes of these beings... But what would they be?

It's taken a few months but the Pickford challenge is finally upon us. John Pickford has sculpted some of the great classics from golden age of d&d and this challenge gives us all an excuse to paint some of them. To complete this challenge you must paint at least 1 John Pickford Otherworld model, a full list can be found here. As always you can paint additional models and models by other companies as long as at least 50% of the models included in your challenge entry are from Otherworld.

Finally I want to congratulate last months participants, the entries can be found here

And the scoreboard now stands at:

Jake B (13) *
AndyM (11)
Clam (13) *
Bruenorodinson (2)
Anakeron (6) *
KiltedYaksMan (11) *
Finch (4)
Michka (8) *
Accalon (5)
Antmaster (4)*
And... Me! (9)

Unfortunately, even after last months no show, I think I'll be failing this challenge too. Even if I have time to paint I think Cthulhu might kill me if I don't paint his stuff, but good luck everyone else and I look forward to seeing many of John's wonderful models brought to life by you all!
