Crystal Brush posted an article talking about another of the qualifiers for this round of the Crystal Brush awards.



From the post:

Greetings, miniature fans, we’re pleased to announce that the Bay Area Open Painting Competition will be a Crystal Brush qualifier again this year! We’ve seen some fantastic models from this convention in past years and are looking forward to the results. The overall grand prize winner will receive his or her choice of $100 in CoolMiniOrNot store merchandise credit, or round trip airfare to compete at the 2015 Crystal Brush Awards in Chicago, Illinois.

Bay Area Open 2014 will be held July 26th and 27th, in San Jose, California, hosted by Frontline Gaming. The weekend will be filled with Warhammer 40K, Warmachine, Hordes, and Warzone events, plus hobby seminars with multiple award winning painter Caleb Wissenback. Painting competition details will be posted on the BAO site shortly. If you’ll be in the area, check it out!

The Crystal Brush added the Bay Area Open to the list of events supporting the painting competition.

From their wrap-up:

The Bay Area Open 2012 has come and gone and what an event it was!

Reecius here from to relate the 3 day fun that was the BAO 2012!

We had a multitude of great gaming events, all of which were met with high praise from our attendees.

The 40K Narrative event, run by Big Jim of Deepstrike Radio, was a blast as we heard nothing but cheers and laughs coming from their end of the hall.

The Fantasy singles tournament sold out at 32, and was a spectacle of beautiful armies battling it out for all the marbles. The title was taken by Josh Rosenstien and his Skaven.
