Meet the Minis – Miniatures Painting Competition Announcement Part 2

Published: April 24, 2018 2:00 PM /



Last month we announced a new ongoing monthly series, Meet the Minis, where each month we will select an epic set of miniatures, show off the models and our favorite reader paint jobs, as well as chat to the development team, take a detailed look at the companies that produce the models, and talk about the miniatures themselves.

In order to show off our favorite reader paint jobs, we're running competitions with two months notice.  So last month's (March 2018's announcement of Raging Heroes Daughters of the Crucible) competition winners will be announced next month (May 2018) in our dedicated article.  In that article we will also have a reminder for the competition announced here, as well as the new competition.

This Month's Competition

This months competition (winners to be announced in June 2018) is Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 Vanguard Veteran Squad. Our sponsors for this month's completion is Goblin Gaming who have kindly donated £15 for the winner!warhammer40kspacemarines
