Every year at Gen Con and Lock & Load GameFest 2019, we hold the Formula P3 Grandmaster Painting Competition. (You can find the full rules and how to enter here.)
This prestigious competition always draws entrees from among the best painters in the world, and 2019 has been no exception! This year saw the introduction of Monsterpocalypse miniatures to our competition, and some of my favorite entries were individual units: a painter’s ability to show off their skills on such a small canvas is just as unique a skillset as painting larger pieces like our line of busts and the new 75 mm Legendary Series Totem Huntress.
I could go on and on about my appreciation of the skills of Grandmaster competitors, but let’s be real: you guys aren’t here for my thoughts on competitive painting. You just want to see the pictures.
So, without further ado…
Ben Kantor won the overall Grandmaster award for his Skarre bust.
Randy Miller received gold in the diorama category for his Totem Huntress.
Ben Carver’s Omadamos took home a silver award in the diorama…
…and so did Zach Lanier’s Captain Allison Jakes!
In the Monsterpocalypse category, Jason Colbeck took home bronze for his Yasheth…
…as did Steven Boatwright for his Hammerklak.
And finally today, we have an honorable mention for Andreas Engstrom’s Crucible Guard Retaliator warjack.
Of course, that’s not all the entries. We do have more to show off, so keep an eye on our website and social media in the coming weeks!
Note: Per longstanding P3 Grandmaster judging guidelines, not every category will have gold, silver, and bronze, while some categories will have multiple of each.
