Wargames Illustrated presents the Historicon™ painting competition

Wargames Illustrated is holding a painting competition in conjunction with the Historicon gaming event.


About the contest:

Following on from the great success of the first WargamesIillustrated Presents the Historicon™ Painting Competition event in july of 2013, we are proud to announce its return to Historicon™ in 2014. With over 120 entries from more than 60 artists, there were many wonderful wargaming miniatures that had been brought to life by the skilled hands of artisans from near and far. Without a doubt, the goals of our first event were met, and we look forward to seeing this competition grow over the coming years.

The Historicon™ painting competition will be hosted on Saturday, 19 July, 2014, as part of the largest historical wargaming convention in the us – Historicon™ – held again this year in Fredericksburg, va, 17-20 july, 2014.

Rules and category listings will soon be posted on the WargamesIillustrated, hmgs™, and Historicon™ websites. Additional questions regarding the competition can be directed to competition coordinator Dave Taylor at:
