A while back I had the opportunity to enter a painting competition at my local gaming store strategies. It had an original theme in that you could enter any miniatures from any game system so long as it comprised a "warband" and adhered to the genre. I didn't enter any vehicle categories but did enter sci-fi, to which I entered my now classic Eldar exarchs. Essentially they made up a Biel-Tan Court of the Young King. Which of course brought back fond memories of the old Eldar army I used to field. I also entered my Avatar which I posted pictures of earlier into the Monster category.
But the point of this post is of course the Beastmen that I entered into the Fantasy category. The Wargor had a good showing at the Conflict Warp Stone contest in Vancouver a few years back so he had to be in there. The others were just some choice models from the army.
I had to work the day of the contest winner announcments but managed to stop by afterwards to find that my Beastmen had won the fantasy category! I was really surprised as there was some stiff competition. And to add to the surprises there was also an award for Fan Favourite which was voted by attendees and the Beasties won that too!
I was able to select from a prize pot which was unfortunately rather picked over since I wasn't at the announcements, meaining all the minis were gone. I did get some great resin base sets from Micro Art Studios and the awesome P3 Wet Palette though like everyone else I just made my own it is really great to have a much cooler looking one now.
So if you have read this far it's probably a good time for the pictures!
