  • Infamy Miniatures Painting Contest

    As you may know Wamp is THE home of painting contests putting on more than anyone else and attracting the biggest companies in the industry to our fold. Indeed contest places are hard to come by and such is the quality of our line up we don't often get new sponsors.

    Well this time we have and boy have they come up with the goods!!

    It's my great pleasure to announce Infamy Miniatures as the latest to sponsor a contest and its a cracker!

    Infamy are a pretty new company but produce some fantastic steampunk inspired miniatures and they had a strong showing in the Wamp awards 2012.
    If you haven't heard of them then you need to check them out at www.infamyminiatures.com

    (Or you can find them in the Wampstore)

    The sculpting and casting on these are fantastic but if that isn't enough to tempt you into grabbing one (and it should!) then maybe the prizes will.

    Categories

    32mm Single Miniature(Voted for by Wamp members)

    Human sized Infamy model mounted on a base or plinth up to 50mm wide.

    Includes: Henrietta Jekyll, Sherlock Holmes, Doctor John Watson and Talullah Belle. There are upcoming releases on the way soon – Peter, Edwina Hyde and The Toad.
    Open (Voted for by Wamp members)

    All monstrous Infamy models as well as larger scale stuff. This is also the category for dioramas and duels.
    Includes: Frank Hyde, Chee-Chee, 54mm and 90mm Talullah Belle. 54mm and 90mm Peter will be released soon.
    Best of the Best (Voted for by James from Infamy)

    Awarded to the most exciting painter in the competition rather than a single entry. It could be for one truly amazing single miniature, but someone who submits various high quality entries will be in with a great chance too, for their complete portfolio.

    James says: “I’ll obviously be looking for wonderful painting and detail, but I love seeing a range of work that shows different skills and ideas. If your entries are imaginative and truly capture the dark, twisted, messed up steampunk world of Infamy then you’ll make me smile.”


    Phew! I think I need a lie down!!
