Man Battlestations is holding a Naval Painting Contest over in their forums. Go check it out.
From the announcement:
It’s hard to believe, but Man Battlestations (the naval gaming forum and blog I started) has been online for almost a year already! To celebrate, I’ve decided to host a naval miniature painting contest. Any naval miniature, from any game system, is eligible for submission. First prize is a $50 gift certificate to The War Store. The deadline for all submissions is 15 April 2013, so get painting!
I really hope you guys decide to participate!
