Hi guys and gals in typical Scorpius GLC fashion I am a couple of weeks late getting this posted, so sit back and have a look at the entries for Games Workshop Burton's First Monthly Painting Competition!
Ok Games Workshop Burton and the wider gaming community that use it as a hub are close to my heart having worked and managed the store from 2004-2008. Working that close with the community is an awesome experience and you get to meet some brilliant established artists as well as nurturing the next generation known to the masses as the Young Bloods!
Painting Competitions are fantastic things to enter and I honestly feel everyone should enter them and these are the reasons:
- It is your chance to display and be proud of the hobby that you enjoy no matter what level you feel you are personally (you are your own worst critique)!
- You help to build a picture of what the hobby is all about in your local community!
- By having conversations with other painters at the event you will gleam advice, tips and tricks that you may never have thought of before and this in turn will progress your skills ready for the next event!
James, the current Store Manager is really trying to highlight the skill within the local community and has planned an ongoing Monthly Painting Competition within the store. This is a fantastic way to help you to build armies or even just paint models you wouldn't normally think of. The following Categories have a randomly selected keyword for that month:
- Age of Sigmar
- Warhammer 40,000
- Middle Earth
- Young Bloods
- Best Conversion
- Forge World
MAY - AGE OF SIGMAR - KEYWORDS: MONSTER/HERO
MAY - 40k - KEYWORDS: INDEPENDANT CHARACTER+UNIT
|Burton Broadsword Award Winner|
MAY - MIDDLE EARTH - KEYWORDS: OPEN CHOICE
If you are local to Burton on Trent, look out for the next competition on Saturday 2nd July. Entries must be in by 11am. The Category Keywords are:
AGE OF SIGMAR: Cavalry
WARHAMMER 40K: Vehicle/Transport
