Let’s Play Games challenges at Arcfest 24

ArcFest 2024 was more than just a celebration of tabletop miniature gaming it was also a showcase of the vibrant hobby community, with Let's Play Games (LPG) capturing the attention of everyone visiting the ArcHobby Hall on level 2 of Sandown Racecourse.



As a leading provider of Army Painter paints, Redgrass wet palettes and an array of tabletop game franchises, including Marvel Crisis Protocol and Star Wars: Shatterpoint, LPG brought its expertise and a team pumped with enthusiasm to the event - leaving a lasting impression on everyone who visited their stand.



Supporting the Community

LPG's commitment to the tabletop gaming community was evident from the moment attendees entered the second floor area of ArcFest. They were a major sponsor and supporter of the event.


But their staffed vendor stand boasted a wide range of products, from premium paints and brushes to iconic gaming franchises, catering to the diverse interests of hobbyists and enthusiasts alike.


There were also some fantastic displays with painted models and scenery showing what a gaming board for Marvel Crisis Protocol and Star Wars Shatterpoint could look like using some of the products they had available at their stand.



Interactive Sessions


Paint and Take allowed participants to try some of the Armypainter Range.

But LPG didn't stop at simply offering products for sale or cool displays to view — they immersed attendees in the world of miniature painting with a series of engaging activity sessions.


From speed painting challenges to paint-and-take workshops, everyone attending ArcFest had the opportunity to unleash their creativity, experience new products under the guidance of experienced staff and have some engaging interactive fun.



Showcasing Talent

One of the weekend's highlights was the display of painted miniatures that didn’t appear until later on the Sunday, showcasing the skill and dedication of hobbyists from across the community who took up a very special challenge.


The Table Top Time team - David, Jen and Murray - choosing the 24hr Challenge winners.

This amazing achievement was the result of LPG’s 24-hour challenge, where participants took on the daunting task of transforming a blind-picked Space Marine easy-to-build model into a masterpiece in less than 24hrs.  


You could pick up a miniature from the stand and lodge it before 2.00pm on day 2 of ArcFest.


The results were astounding! The range of color schemes and finished models on display was a testament to the creativity and talent of the participants. From bold and vibrant designs to intricate and detailed paintwork, each model was a unique expression of its creator's vision and skill.


The decision wasn’t easy but the team from table top time Murray, David and Jen stepped in to choose the top three entries.



In the end the decision was between three models. But the winner was James Davies with his Blood Angel Heavy Bolter Marine. The silver went to Chris Papaspyru with his Purple Marine, third place and bronze went to Seamus Meaclaws.

With ArcFest now over for 2024 the impact of Let's Play Games' participation was undeniable. Their contributions not only enriched the event experience for a load of people but also served as a example of the passion and camaraderie that define the tabletop gaming community.  We’ve a lot to thank LPG for with their involvement this year and look forward to seeing them back for the next ArcFest.

Hey man,

Great article, could I ask for a small amendment please? “Fraya” should be “Freyja” (she’s my sister).


Looking forward to seeing the gallery ;)
