Chad Valley Big League painted kits gallery
The greatest joy derived from the Chad Valley Big League football game was the fact that you received unpainted players and a set of paints in the box!
Here is an appreciation of the results of that gift - the lovingly painted kits produced by many young hands.
Please feel free to send me your own creations and i'll add them to this page.
Big League Kit Gallery 1
Some lovely kits created using the standard players - matt paint always looks so much better than gloss.
Beautifully painted Big League Melchester team.
Kit Gallery 2
The French kit from the 1980's is a joy - complete with Adidas arm stripes!
More cracking kits
Ropey painting but I love the idea behind the kit on the right.
A huge wallcharts packed with colour kit illustrations, who could resist such temptation. Look at those mad Irish kits!
The raw materials
Blank figures, pots of paint and a young child's imagination.
Striker painted kits
Striker players also lent themselves to being painted - top work here!
If only my camerawork wasn't so rubbish you could see the beautiful badge painted on.
Liverpool players with Beatle haircuts, astonishing.
Go the whole hog
Adding numbers and even players names brings the whole game to life - top job.
A good challenging kit to paint - easy white base then a tricky diamond.
Three stripes, now we're getting to advanced level.
The hardest kit on the poster!
That lion needs to be recognisable - a blob of yellow paint just won't do
Classic Brazil team using Big League players.
