Our Goal

"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 and with the constant support of HISTORICON® - Wargames Illustrated has been able to build the HISTORICON painting competition into a great event to be proud of. This competition now encourages hundreds of aspiring painters to keep improving their skills, and inspires thousands of miniature gamers to try new and exciting projects we can all enjoy!"
