Hi Martin here! We are very proud to announce we have TWO premium co-sponsors for the Spring 2019 Brush with Death painting competition. Our friends at Artis Opus have once again agreed to sponsor all the category winners with exclusive box sets of their amazing brushes. The Autumn winners loved their prizes and we are over the moon to be working with them once again and are proud to announce we will soon be stocking Artis Opus brushes to sell through our website.
Our second co-sponsor is the amazing Vallejo! Vallejo paints are used by some of the best painters in the business, including Angel Giraldez who is one of our Studio Painters. Each category winner will receive a fantastic paint set.
Launching today ahead of the Spring Mantic Open Day on the 4th of May 2019 you have just under 4 months to get your award winning entries painted. The closing date for emailed entries will be Wednesday 1st May 2019 to allow the judges time to go through the entries. Entries can be delivered in person by midday on the 4th May at Mantic HQ. The winners will then be announced by Ronnie Renton during the open day!
How to enter:
All submissions should be photographed at least 3 times , from different angles and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure your pictures are well lit and sharp – so we can see your amazing paintjobs. There are plenty of guides online to help you when it comes to photographing your minis. You can also choose to send in or drop off at HQ in Nottingham too.
