  • Reaper miniatures Painting Contest 2012 - Results

    Our inaugural Reaper contest has come to a close and its been a great one. We have seen everything from evil necromancers to frogs! Sculpts filled with character that have really encouraged you all to have a go and there's some lovely paint jobs in there.
    But alas we have to take just 3 from the field of 28 and put these worthy winners on a pedestal.

    Its been a very tight contest with 2 entries neck and neck for days (indeed the voting was extended until we found an outright winner!) So winning by just a single vote, the Reaper Champion 2012 is...........

    with his Barbarian:

    Congratulations to Werewolf who is rewarded with $75 worth of Reaper goodies for his trouble.

    Coming in a very close 2nd is a stalwart of these contest and that is........


    Just a single vote was the difference for her Necromancer not taking the top honours. A well earned $50 bag of booty is coming your way Jess.

    (It must be noted that Brushmistress also came 3rd in the voting with her Callie entry but under the rules only one prize is awarded.

    So nabbing that final spot on the podium is......

    Mamageek with Lanura Windsong. So Joy earns herself a tidy $25 bag of goodies.

    ( a note to also mention Mamageeks other entry and also Landreth who were just a single vote off 3rd place)

    Congratulations to our winners who were well deserved, the usual thanks go out to every one that took the time to enter, vote or comment. I know a lot of new faces popped over from the Reaper Boards for this so I hope some of you stick around!
    Thanks to Reaper Miniatures themselves, especially Ed. This was a new contest and one I hope we will see return next year as its been a lot of fun. If you haven't had the chance to paint a Reaper mini I encourage you to give it a go, they are beautiful pieces. You can find them here:

              Congratulations to the winners and well done to everyone that entered!

              In all honesty, it was really tough to narrow it down to just three choices, there were so many wonderful pieces.
              To equate intelligence and wisdom with occupation is, at best, insulting.

                Congratulations to all the winners! It was definitely tough to narrow it down to three...
