As we enter into a period of new life and leave Winter behind we're often hit with inspiration brought on by a change of season into Spring.

Hobby Lab Open Challenge: Shades Of Spring

Much like with the in-between moments during battles where the blood vanishes and the snowdrops appear on the ground, this new challenge encapsulates everything that is new in life. We're looking for anything that captures new life bursting onto the tabletop.

What Is Shades Of Spring?

Before you begin thinking of Spring daffodils and daisies this isn't particular assigned to the weather or season itself. This is a challenge that can be focused in on any time of year and we want to see terrain based on your Sci-Fi worlds, vast deserts, Steampunk factories and moments of horror too!

As long as the focus is on something new coming to life on the tabletop we're all for it so let your imagination run wild with this one.

When Does It End?

Our end date this time is the beginning of Summer Solstice, June 21st so you have plenty of time to get your hands dirty and those green fingers exercised. Make sure to create your own topic in our Hobby & Painting Forums with the "Shades of Spring" tag in the topic.
