Russians and Saxons Victorious... the 1st ever  La Bricole painting competition!

Bryce and Paul, (Greystreak and Lieutenant Hausmann respectively) submitted gorgeous entries for the competition.  Everyone who participated got two votes, and the results were close- only one vote determined the winner- in what was a very tight field featuring some really impressive painting.

Here are their winning entries, and very high quality work indeed. Click on each picture to enlarge.

1st Place: Bryce's Libavskii Russian Infantry Regiment (28mm Foundry)
Well done, guys!

I was very pleased to see that the winning entries featured two different sizes of miniatures, and that they represented troops from opposing sides of the conflict!  That should keep claims of bias at bay...

A lot of work went into the competition from a lot of great painters out there- I congratulate all of them, and look forward to our next contest.  Probably something a little less ambitious next time, so that the painting sloths like me will have a chance at actually finishing something!

Thanks for running the competition Robert,

It was great fun to see everyone working like beavers to get their entries finished.

Even the guys who didn't get full units finished still got a good number of troops either on the go or nearly finished so it's all positive!
