Historicon - War Games Illustrated Painting Contest

Wargames Illustrated
® Painting Competition

Wargames Illustrated Presents the HISTORICON® Painting Competition event for the 6th year. We are proud to announce its return to HISTORICON®  in 2017. 

® Painting Competition will be hosted on Saturday, July 15, 2017, as part of the largest historical wargaming convention in the US – HISTORICON® ( - held again this year in Fredericksburg, VA (July 13-16, 2017).

Rules and Categories are here.

Additional questions regarding the competition can be directed to Competition Coordinator Dave Taylor at:



As gamers we love to see fantastic wargaming tables and beautiful armies, but we also love to look at wonderfully painted toy soldiers for hours on end. Over recent years, the constantly increasing priority workload of the HMGS Hobby University™ team at HISTORICON® has meant that the painting competition has not been able to receive the attention it deserves. By adding the driving force of Wargames Illustrated – the world’s premier wargaming magazine, to the event, we are excited to have the opportunity to build the competition into a great event that will encourage hundreds of aspiring painters to keep improving their skills, and inspire thousands of miniature gamers to new and exciting projects we can all enjoy!
