PHD and The Army Painter Miniature Painting Competion – Test Your Painting Skills!

Gnome Games, Army Painter and PHD Distribution invite you to paint your miniature and win big prizes in the Into the Darkness Painting Contest!

Break out your brushes and pop the caps off your paints! The Army Painter and Peachstate Hobby Distribution have joined forces once again to bring an exciting miniature competition to all Gnome Games stores!

The Army Painter: Into the Darkness Painting Competition will allow you to compete nationally with other minis painters for some awesome prizes.

With this national competition, someone will be promoted to the top miniature painter at each Gnome Games store and receive a $50 store credit for The Army Painter products.

Then, each store’s winner will move on to the finals in which the Best of the Best will win The Grand Prize: The Limited Edition Wargamers Complete Paint Set valued at $350!

The Rules:

  • Register for the store competition at the store of your choice when you purchase your miniature. We’ll log it and get a “before” picture. All miniatures entered into the contest must be purchased at the store where you enter.
    Then begin painting! Bring it back for judging on or before December 6. A winner will be announced by December 8 for each store.
  • You may only submit one miniature for judging in this competition per store.
  • We’ll be taking pictures of the winner and the winning mini and sending them to PHD for the national judging. Gnome Games and PHD will be posting all entries to Facebook. PHD will be posting all the store winners to their Facebook page so everyone can enjoy the amazing work of all the epic-level painters!
