The Burning Brush: A Painting Contest
Pyre Studios is pleased to announce the first annual Burning Brush painting contest. This is an open contest with a combined £250 in prizes. It really only has two main requirements. Firstly the miniatures used must come from the game lines currently carried by Pyre Studios. Secondly is that “fire” must play some part in/with/on/near the composition. This can be anything from a cigar to a flamethrower or a logo to a flamejob.
1. Single miniature
This category covers a single miniature, of any scale, that can be mounted on a 25mm to 75mm base. This includes Warlands vehicles and larger kits.
2. Squads, Teams & Forces
This covers a cohesive unit or force of between 5 and 12 miniatures. Examples: A MERCS Squad, a force of Warlands vehicles, Elfball teams etc…
Two or more miniatures arranged on a base to tell some sort of story. This can be as small or as large as you like.
