We had a lot of fun at Gen Con this year running a Shadows of Brimstone Painting Contest. Many great submissions came in and several were from first-time painters who had just started painting minis with Shadows of Brimstone. We had planned to do an online Painting Contest in October, but have been very overwhelmed working on Brimstone expansion material.
Now that the holidays are in full swing, we recognize that people may have some time to paint figures and it would be good to launch the Online Shadows of Brimstone Painting Contest.
The categories include:
- Single Brimstone Hero – One Shadows of Brimstone Hero on a base. It must be an official Shadows of Brimstone miniature, but may be modified to alter the pose or add details (different weapons, different head or hat, etc).
- Single Brimstone Creature – One Shadows of Brimstone Enemy on a base. It must be an official Shadows of Brimstone miniature, but may be modified to alter the pose or add details (extra horns, fur, etc).
- Brimstone Bounty – This is sort of a catch all category that could include multiple miniatures on one base or diorama, or a grouping of Heroes or Monsters. It must include at least one official Shadows of Brimstone miniature, but may be modified to alter the pose or add details.
Best models shown in each category win prizes including Flying Frog games, miniatures, and promo items not available in stores. This is not just for experienced painters, we encourage everyone to give it a try!
NOTE: Miniatures must be painted by the person entering the contest, one entry per category, per person.
To enter, take some pictures of your masterpieces and send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact info (email, phone, address). Please make the subject of the email “PAINTING CONTEST 2015 ENTRY“. All entries are due by Midnight December 31st, 2015 PST. Winners will be announced in early January.
