Irregular Magazine Painting Competition

Irregular Magazine have sent along details of their summer painting competition.

From their announcement:

Get your brushes ready, we’ve got a painting competition to keep you busy over the summer. The theme is Skirmish, so interpret that however you like.

The Irregular Magazine team will be judging this one, and we’ll be looking for creativity and how well your entry suits the theme, as well as technical competence.

Sponsoring the competition this issue is Dragon Forge Design, who produce some fantastic resin gaming bases and objective markers to improve your armies, or make your display pieces really stand out. The round bases are particular suitable for skirmish type games! The Dragon Forge store also boasts terrain, display plinths, diorama bases, icicles and power cables!

Dragon Forge Design is run by multiple award-winning painter and sculptor, Jeff Wilhelm, who’s been incredibly generous with the prizes on offer:

  • 1st place: $50 worth of DFD products
  • 2nd place $30 worth of DFD products
  • 3rd place $20 worth of DFD products

Worldwide shipping is included.
