Historicon Painting Competition - 2015

For the third year in a row, Wargames Illustrated and HMGS came together to host the Historicon Painting Competition.  Each year the event grows larger, with more entries in more varied genres.  Pictures of each categories winner were recently posted on the WI website, and they'll have full results in an upcoming issue of their magazine.  I wanted to share some of my favorites, with pictures from their website.  Jessica Rich again had some fantastic entries, this time winning in two categories, and taking Best in Show as well.  My FlaK Crew Objective won Best of Flames of War, my third Iron Cross in three years.  There were some fabulous Flames of War entries this year, and some other models were just as deserving.

  1. Wow. The lady on the horse is amazing. The detailing on her dress is unbelievable.

    1. Yeah, that seems to be the painter's trademark. She did a mounted knight latter year that was amazing. She's very talented.

  2. Am just glad all the great painters have left Norcal. If they all painted like these lot (Yourself included), I'd never win anything.

    1. Thanks? Haha. There are some solid painters out there still, they just only seem to show up sporadically. Reno, Josh, yourself included.
