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.

Banelegions 2012 - Results
What a contest! The lure of our biggest ever prize haul has tempted plenty of you to wield your brushes in anger an come up with some cracking results (heck it even tempted me to paint something too!) The Banelegions has some cracking miniatures in its range and you have certainly done them justice. I think the fact we didnt have to vote on this was maybe a good thing!! That task fell to Maelstrom Games themselves. Several of their staff (including their studio painters) took the time to choose their favourites with each judge compiling their own short lists and points awarding to their positionsbyPublished on 20-08-2012 04:36 PM Number of Views: 283
