What is PaintSlam 2023?
Put simply, PaintSlam is a hobby log which you can print out or put onto your smart device or computer to keep track of what you’ve painted over the course of the year!
It’s no pressure and just for fun! There’s a space on the sheet to mark down any hobby goals you have for the year, and you can keep tracking of the running total on miniatures you’ve worked on throughout 2023. You might surprise yourself with just how much you can do in a year! Or perhaps set yourself a hobby challenge to paint, say, 100 miniatures before the end of 2023.
See how joining in can help you with your hobby-
- Painting advice

I’d love to have you on board in 2023!

There’s columns for game system (for example, you might enter Warhammer 40k, D&D, Bolt Action, Infinity, Marvel, etc), the unit you painted, the number of models painted for this entry, the running total of models and the date of completion.
Share your hobby!
The real fun in #PaintSlam23 is sharing your progress pictures and finished work on Social media with other people taking part! Simply use the hashtag #PaintSlam23 when you share photos of your miniatures! Some people like to share a pic of how their hobby log is looking at the time too!
