Andy introduces a new series of painting competitions that we’re launching this month.

Until now, Mantic Games’ painting competition has been limited to our tournaments and the Open Day painting competitions. We are pleased to announce that the scope is widening to include an ongoing series, online.

Each competition will focus on a different game system and category. This allows you to vary your painting, and provides different challenges and learning opportunities.

For example, our first competition is a Kings of War Monster, and our next a Warpath Universe Vehicle. The next time Kings of War appears, the category will change to a Regiment, or perhaps War Machine.

To whet your appetite – and wet your brushes – here are the categories for the first four competitions:




August 4th September Kings of War Monster*
September 2nd October Warpath Universe Vehicle
October 6th November The Walking Dead: All Out War 60/60**
November 4th December Dungeon Saga Hero

More categories will be announced on the Mantic Blog and on the Mantic Games Facebook Group as we proceed.

Here’s a great Kickstarter exclusive Negan, as painted by Paul Welsh.

How to Enter

Simply take 1-3 photos of your completed entry and send it to before 5pm UK time on the deadline date.

There are plenty of guides to miniatures photography online, so take your time and capture that ‘golden angle’.

And The Winner Is…

A handpicked selection of our staff will judge the entries and we’ll notify the winner by email to arrange shipping of their prize.

In addition we will display the winning entry and – select other entries – through our Social Media channels the first Monday after the deadline (#ManticMonday).

Finally, we will select the most appropriate images to be used as alternate images on our online shop!

Thanks for reading – and we look forward to seeing your Monsters, soon!
