Hello everybody. Thanks to everybody who entered and voted in the last round, and many thanks indeed for giving me the honour of victory in the last round - it was very much appreciated, especially given the high quality of the entries.

 

For the next round of the unit painting contest, please enter any unit of troops for any fantasy game system (no historicals or science fiction miniatures please). Minimum entry size five miniatures, but 3 or so for larger (ogre/troll sized) miniatures is fine. If you have any questions, please drop me a PM.

 

Key dates:

 

Contest Open - Now!

End of submissions - Saturday 26 May 2018

Voting ends - Saturday 2 June 2018

 

If you have any questions, please let me know

 

Good luck everyone, 

 

LA

Well, I've got slightly lucky on ebay, and bagged me a decent sized unit of ironbreakers (with square bases - dwarfs fight in ranks and files - none of this skirmishing, flighty elven malarkey):

I hope this entry is ok, My "unit" is my Dwarven fleet for Man o' War. (and if someone is sitting on a squadron of gyrocopters I'm interested. :) )

I have a large quantity of Avatars of War Rangers on the way, if they arrive in time I’ll enter the contest.
I have new tiny brushes and a new smaller-to-bigger-lense, so I might have a fighting chance!

I'll try enter too, although I'm undecided as to what to paint. Probably some dwarven classic crossbowmen or imperial dwarfs...

Edit: Here's my freshly stripped dwarfs (easy now)

I got some AoW Hammerers that I've been trying to finish for years. Let's see if this gives me the motivation.

I started my unit, I have forty painted torso+legs, aaaand then I started making model railway wagons instead. So if I don’t get done in time I’ll have to submit a GWR box van!! :-)
