Steve Jackson Games posted this over on Facebook several days ago. It would be great to see a lot of entries to build up momentum to keep this sort of thing going in the future!


"At FnordCon (April 6-7 in Austin) we will play a lot of Ogre, and we'll be holding an Ogre miniatures painting contest. There will be two divisions: Live (for those who can bring a painted miniature) and Photo (for those who can't attend or can't bring their miniature to the show). To enter the Live division, just bring your painted Steve Jackson Games-produced miniatures from the Ogre line with you to FnordCon! You do not have to register in advance. So, if you've got one partially done, you still have a couple of weeks to finish it. The miniatures may be metal or plastic; it's only the paint job that we will be looking at! To enter the Photo division, email one color photo (per mini), preferably 3/4 view from slightly above so we can see both front and side (see PHOTO EXAMPLE), of up to two miniatures that you have painted. Make the email subject line "FnordCon Miniatures Entry" and be sure to include your actual name and where you're from in the body of the e-mail. Send your photos to and we'll also be posting them in a photo album as part of this Facebook page. Entries must be received before 11 p.m. (CT) on Wednesday, April 3. Each contest participant may submit a maximum of two entries in their chosen division (Live or Photo). Prizes will be bragging rights, plus surprises! Good luck!"

I'm just doing a final touch-up on the two I'll be sending in.

I would have made the pilgrimage to FnordCon, except that by the time they announced the con, I was already on deck to run Ogre games at Havoc that same weekend here at home.

Sent my pix in this afternoon. Those, along with Legion 4's very nicely marked ones, and another's camou job tanks have been added to the photo album linked at the top.

Mithmee, you don't have to Facebook to participate. Entries get emailed to the addie in the first post if you would care to join in.

Oooh, the final batch of entries have been posted in the photo album on Facebook. A good turnout, and a lot of fun painting!
