    Wamp Awards 2012.png

    The Wamp awards return for their third year as we offer recognition to outstanding contributions to our hobby. This is your chance to nominate people,companies and miniatures you feel push Miniature Painting forward.

    This year sees a little jiggle of the categories with the expansion of some sections.

    The first stage will be nominations which are open to all. So if there's something or someone you think deserving then put them forward. Once nominations are in then a short-list for each category will be announced.

    Voting on the short lists will then open and the top three form each category will be chosen.

    The categories are as follows:


    • Best Fantasy Miniature
    • Best Sci-Fi Miniature
    • Best Historical Miniature
    • Best Steampunk Miniature
    (these 4 categories are for sculpts not painted versions)


    • Best Painted Fantasy
    • Best Painted Sci-Fi
    • Best Painted Historical
    • Best Painted Steampunk
    (this includes dioramas, scratchbuild,etc)


    • Best Miniature Company
    • Best New Miniature Company
    • Best Range
    • Best Product
    • Best Event
    • Best Publication
    • Best Blog



    All categories (except genre specific awards) are open to any genre, scale or product type as long as its related to miniature painting.


    • Nominations will remain open until 4pm Friday 30h November 2012 (GMT)
    • You may nominate up to 10 nominee's per category
    • You must send your nominations to Nominations
    • Try where possible to include a link to images for sculpts,and painted miniatures
    • The short lists will be announced in early December
    • Anonymous voting by poll will then commence until 14th December 2011
    • You must be registered on Wamp to vote
    • You may not nominate yourself or your own product,company,event or miniature.
    • In the event of a tie Judges will decide a final winner for said category
    • All nominations must be for active products or events from 2012. For miniatures (sculpts and painted) it must have been new in 2012. New company means a company launched in 2012

    Product, to me,suggests something like liquid greenstuff or those tube tools. I suppose publication would work but again that's more usually magazines and such. I'll nominate some and you can sort them out where you think they fit

    There have been several good sets of rules out this year, Bolt Action and the latest 40k being two.

    thanks to everyone nominating so far.

    I just want to clarify that best miniatures categories is for miniatures released in 2012. Likewise best painted is for painted work published in 2012 (though the actual sculpt can be older)

    Best New company relates to companies launched in 2012

    the voting should be over by next friday according to the announcement, so I'm wondering whether the people will have enough time to vote...
