During April I thought it would be fun to set a small optional challenge for people partaking in #Painthammer2019 – to attempt a bit of Freehand painting on a miniature or two and share the results with the hashtag #PainthammerFreehand. Shall we take a look at what people got up to?
This happened!! 🤩 #painthammer2019 #warhammer40k #eldarharlequins #paintingwarhammer #gamesworkshop #miniatures #hobbypeeps #aeldari #painthammerfreehand pic.twitter.com/cGOplXxYfO

Starting with myself, I challenged myself to paint Aeldari Harlequins with diamonds. Last time I painted some of these guys I totally chickened out but I really wanted to push myself with this squad. I was really happy with the final results I got and I feel my confidence as a painter really increased with this project!
It a bit out of focus, but Airborne Ogryn has his "blue badge of courage" wings to show he can fall with style out of Valkyrie #PainthammerFreehand pic.twitter.com/3MRiuftCln

@cliffe_g painted a “Blue badge of courage” onto the backpack of his Ogryn! Looks fab to me! 🙂
My first ever attempt at freehand thought the banners needed something on them #PaintHammer2019 #painthammerfreehand pic.twitter.com/JbzM32LM4l

@englishalex96 painted up a Skaven machine, not sure what this one is called, but he did a lovely freehand banner!
As promised @DarrenLatham!

Meanwhile @Anamnesisstudio painted a lovely design onto the trim of this Librarian’s cloak. Fantastic work!
Ugh. When you take the photo they look great, then you look again and see everything you didn't before #painthammerfreehand #Warmongers #PaintingWarhammer #painthammer2019 https://t.co/kphmRrPcnX pic.twitter.com/oemeeQaX7m

@therealjoshface has been working on Blood Angels, with some nicely painted Chapter symbols! 🙂
#painthammer2019 #painthammerfreehand and I am retiring from freehand 😂😂 that took bloody ages and I’ve actually surprised myself there!! Another coat needs to go on and it’s off centre but I’m putting that in the win box 👍 (it’s supposed to be a lion by the way 😂😂😂) pic.twitter.com/GFCQaWMpn1

@PainterPart has painted this lion onto the shoulder of his Dreadnought!
#painthammerfreehand Here’s my first attempt at freehand – it’s supposed to be the Griffin from the Morgan family crest (I think it looks more like the demon from DisEnchanted 🥴) – obvs the Dread is #WIP pic.twitter.com/dqAA1lnCLS

And speaking of Dreadnoughts, @DocRods also added a bit of freehand to one of his own, a griffin 🙂

An absolute ton of Freehand here on these robots from @Scykhe for his amazing Mechanicus army. If you’ve been following along you’ll know his models are almost drowning in freehand!

@CommissarLewlew painted this chapter symbol on a tank here. Is it a Rhino with an upgrade or its own thing? I don’t know Space Marine tanks lol.
