Rule Britannia!


The results are in from r/minipainting’s ‘Tint Your Tribe‘ competition.  I won in the novice category with my mini ‘Rule Britannia’.  Over the past few months I’ve tried get the basics right and push myself to try new techniques.  I’ve had some really positive feedback from the community at r/minipainting and the Oldhammer Forum, and it’s an amazing boost to win a competition.  And of course, there’s a prize: more minis, contributed by the excellent Westphalia Miniatures, Rain City Hobbies, and CK’s Wood.

Thanks to everyone who organised, participated, sponsored and voted.  I’m looking forward to the next competition in June.
