We are proud to announce the 5 judges who will be deciding the winners of the 2012 Painting Competition!  

This years judges are:
Nik Harwood!
Clibinarium!
Andy Mac!
Maciek!
and Dave!


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 these people?!

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] :-)

Clibinarium!
The name Clibinarium will be instantly recognisable to most people as the man behind our fantastic Late Roman and AWI ranges.  He is 33 and a professional sculptor.

Andy Mac!
I am a hobby painter who enjoys both the researching of the units and the painting of the figures.  I started about 6 years ago painting 28mm ACW figures, my work was seen by Dave Marks who wrote "In the Name of Glory" Napoleonic rules and he asked me if he could use my figures in his ACW rule set " Honor & Glory".
 
I met up with him at Colours '05 and was introduced to war gaming proper for the first time, up until that point I had never gamed.  I had taken some work with me to sell, some ACW figures by Redoubt Enterprises.  Trevor Body from Redoubt stopped by the table and asked who had painted them.  When I said it was me, he asked if I would like to do some work for him.  Things kind of grew from there, I was approached by Magister Militum the following year, again at Colours and I did some 28mm work for them.  This was great I now had a self funding hobby, the work paid for reference books, paints and more figures.  I had picked up a couple of private customers along the way as well.
 
About 3 years ago started doing 10mm work for Magister and really enjoyed the scale.  One of my customers, who has now become a great friend asked me would I like to do both some ACW and AWI in 10mm for him.  The ACW being a mix of manufacturers and the AWI being Pendraken's.  I took up the offer and have not looked back since.  In the last couple of years the level of sculpting on 10mm has jumped in leaps and bounds. My view has always been if the artist can put that amount of work into producing the figure then It's only fair I try to do the same when painting it.  
 
I have now had work in 3 of the main War games Magazines, some featured in articles others appearing in adverts. I am still and always will be just a hobby painter, if I am lucky I get to game about twice a year.  The best thing about painting for me now though is the friends I have made, not just in the UK but all over the world.

Maciek!
Now nearly 40 years old, I have been a wargamer since the age of 12.  I started in communist Poland, where a pack of Airfix plastics went for the price of good shoes, and the only coloured painting guide available was a copy of Fred Funcken "Uniformes", owned by one of my older friends (it was probably the only copy in Warsaw!).

For the last 5 years I have been devoted to 10mm, converting and painting figures for ACW, WSS and AWI armies, plus making my own flags, with the ambition of having the best flags available in this scale.

Since the spring of 2011, I have been blogging at http://zealandbayonets.blogspot.com/, where I present my works, as well as those of my friends.


As mentioned above, pics of Maciek's work can be found on his blog: http://zealandbayonets.blogspot.com/

and finally, Pendraken's own...

Dave!
I started wargaming in the early 70's, painting Minifigs ECW figures.  Royalists were red, and the roundheads had yellow and red hooped sleeves!  My painting hasn't got much better!
I started Pendraken Miniatures in 1992, to fund my own hobby really, and 20 years later we're still going strong!  I don't get much time to game anymore, but try to get in at least 1 game a year if I can!  

Good luck to everyone who enters!


 Cool
