Here's the motley crue who will be judging all of this year's entries!  

- Nik Harwood!
- Clibinarium!
- Andy Mac!
- Techno!
- Kev1964!


Each of the judges will be given 3 / 2 / 1 points to award in each category (3 points to the best entry, 2 points to the second best, 1 point to the third).  The points will be tallied up and the winners will be announced shortly after the closing date of 29th Feb.

So, who are they?!

Kev1964!
After he cleaned up in the 2014 competition, we had to promote Kev to the judging team instead!  His work has been seen all over the Forum, in those previous painting competitions and more recently painting up mollinary's ECW army.

Like many middle aged chaps on the Forum, Kev started painting Airfix figures in the '70s, so he thought he'd give figure painting a go.  Luckily it has kept the wolf from the door for four years now and he's still enjoying it!

Nik Harwood!
Nik has been painting figures since the age of about 5 when he started trying to colour in the weapons on his older brother's Airfix plastic Afrika Korps; he made a decent amount of pocket money in junior school by painting early Citadel figures for fellow classmates playing D&D; his first 'proper' wargames armies were Colonial British and Zulus - done for a school project aged 12. He's not looked back since - apart from a brief hiatus when he was distracted by totty...his main interests are...multiple [& still include totty, 10mm or otherwise] :-)

He spends his time these days training hamsters to run really, really fast to keep his interwebs working properly...


Pics of Nik's work: http://nikharwood.pbworks.com/ and all over the Forum!


Clibinarium!
Clibinarium will be a name familiar to a lot of people as the sculptor of our Late Roman, AWI and League of Augsburg ranges.  Before he decided to start pushing the putty about and setting new standards in 10mm sculpting, he had a similar flair for painting as well!

Andy Mac!
Andy is another well known name in the 10mm circuit, doing work for a variety of manufacturers and gamers over many years.  His work can be seen on all of our painted AWI webpics he's currently working on finishing off the rest of the League of Augsburg ones as well.  Andy's view has always been if the artist can put that amount of work into producing the figure then it's only fair he try to do the same when painting it!

Techno!
Phil refuses to tell us how old he is and will only admit to being slightly older than Dave.

He's worked in the industry full time since 1987 when he joined Games Workshop as their photographer, though he'd had numerous of his painted figures in White Dwarf and various Citadel Journals before this.  From there he went on to run the figure painting unit in the studio, writing many of the 'Eavy Metal articles and helping out with the figure painting for White Dwarf and numerous rule books and games produced at the time.

After that, he was (Hah!....His word) 'put in charge' of the figure designers to help coordinate miniatures production.  After leaving Workshop in '91 he started working for various firms as a freelancer, designing figures, which he's been doing ever since.

He thinks it was '89 when he was informed that "You're chief judge for Golden Demon this year."..An experience he remembers with a slight shudder...(Though he was laughing when he said that.)  "Stroll on....You trying looking at hundreds and hundreds of entries all within a few hours......Eeeek"  

He originally thought that helping judge the Pendraken Painting Competition would be a lot less stressful and a lot more fun, but has been regretting it ever since...  Wink  He's always rather chuffed to take part though!




Good luck to everyone who enters!

 Cool

A truly talented team!   I note there are, as usual, lots of good prizes but, as I looked at the list of judges, a thought occurred to me. Would it be possible for each of the judges to paint a small Pendraken vignette to award as their own individual special prize for whatever took their fancy most? Just a thought.  Undecided

I'm not sure if they'd each have the time for that?  We could maybe get a single one done for next year that could be given out as a special prize?

You slave driver Mollinary  GrinGrin, That idea did cross my mind this morning,then i thought would the winner want something painted by someone else ?. I would gladly offer to paint 3 or 4 command figs on a base to fit in with someones army. What about if everyone who enters gets allotted a number then goes into a draw and i'll paint a base of figs that they want, that gives everyone a chance of winning something. I don't do vehicles though, i leave them to the experts  Grin.

That sounds a fantastic and very generous idea, and a real incentive to people to enter. How about it, Leon?

Very nice offer Kev

I was going to offer to do something similar myself but decided it wouldn't be fair if the value of peoples figures went down once I was let loose near them with a paint brush
