Originally, this place was created to host pictures of a special fan game played using Kev Adams figures only - hence its name, "The Kev Adams Challenge". With the assistance of several dedicated contributors, it quickly grew into a gallery and resource site of Kevin "GoblinMaster" Adams' fine works :)
Given the stupendous number of figures he has sculpted in his career, the original title of this blog still applies, as it is a challenge to try and display even a decent fraction of his production indeed!

Do you have some nice pics to send us for the gallery?
A Kev Adams Challenge game report - one with Kev Adams figures only - to submit?

Kev's painting of other people's sculpts

Pete Brown: "Cowboy and Indian, Everybody knows what a fine and distinctive sculptor Kevin is, but not many people know what an accomplished painter and model maker he is. This collection of painted WW2 20mm plastics was a thing to behold… 100’s of them all skilfully and lovingly painted, I don’t think they ever saw wargames action, Kev as far as I know is not a Gamer, but his 20mms were a beautiful sight. These two minis are I think by Wargames Foundry, sculpted by Mark Copplestone, and were again a gift. The faces are the thing on these, the Indian’s particularly, is smashing, bringing a touch of humanity to tiny little lead-men."

Pete Brown: "GW Bug-bear or Gnoll or something, again painted delightfully by ya’man, but I’ve included it to point out just how generous Kev can be about other peoples work. If Kev like something, he sez so, he’s never too proud or too jealous, or stuck-up not to recognise the effort and talent of other mini makers, whether they be a Newbie or Old Master, Kev loves the work other people produce, and can recognise where they do things better or differently to him. This minis is no different, made I think by a Perry or Mr Goodwin, Kev would say, “this is good, I can’t do X or Y as well as this”.
Modest and Honest. "
