Biggest ever online painting competition?

November 16, 2009

As a member of WAMP, and as a miniature painter, I am delighted to let you all know about this fantastic event organised by Brett Johnson of WAMP.

Over at Wamp we decided for our charity event this year we would think big. So to raise money for Tommy’s a charity that helps prevent miscarriages and stillbirth we created what we believe is the largest online miniature painting contest ever!
We have a prize fund that currently sits at £1550!! and is growing all the time! Best in show winner will receive a prize pot worth over £300 including, cash, miniatures,bases, brushes and store credit at a several suppliers.
You can enter anything you like – the only stipulation is that you auction any entry and donate it to the campaign.
You can enter as many times as you like.
To find out more and see the up to date prize list and categories please visit Little Angels.
Please help support this cause by entering or donating a prize for the contest, putting a link in your forum sigs, even just spreading the word or donating cash – it all helps.

The Best in Show trophy is all shiny, and  safely waiting for the winner to take it home. Just make sure your Golden Imp entries are booked in by 12:00 to be in with a chance of winning a medal!.

Please bring your own brushes and paints with you – as we’re not able to provide them. We will, however, have goody bags (whilst stocks last) for everyone.

For those of you that can’t make it, don’t worry, we’re planning on taking lots of photos.

See you on Saturday!

Rule Britannia!

April 7, 2009

The Rule Britannia painting competition over on the Platoon Britannica forum is running until April 23rd (St Georges day).

  1. Sign up to the Platoon Britannica forum before the deadline.
  2. If you are a Brit, pm Kaine the moderator to get full ‘member’ status.
  3. If you’re not a Brit you can enter the ‘Johnny Foreigner’ category instead. (see below)
  4. Entries must be either a single model or a diorama consisting of no more than 2 minis mounted on the same base.
  5. Submit your entry in picture form with your username to a thread (on the PB site) which will be open close to the deadline.
  6. Take part in the judging – all those signed up to the PB site can vote.

There are no scale or base size restrictions but each entry must have a distinctly “British” theme. (This could mean historical figures, vehicles etc or could be a British influence in a fantasy setting. As long as it looks British then it’s a viable entry.)
