Miniature Painting Contest: Beholder!

After the Dire Troll miniature painting contest, we took a little break from contests to give us some time to launch the website you’re currently reading. Now that we’ve got some breathing room, we’re amped to fire up the contests again so let’s get into it!

The Mini

Everyone’s favorite floating flesh orb is getting a makeover. Rather, you’re giving it one! Come in to the store and grab a Beholder today!



There are multiple ways to win!

All submissions are eligible for “Crowd Favorite,” and this can be awarded to a submission that has already won one of the first two categories. Anyone who doesn’t win in any of the standard categories is eligible for the “Better To Be Lucky” category!

1  Best Overall (Two Winners)

Our judge panel will look over all of the minis and choose two submissions that they feel stand out from the pack!


  • 1st – $40 Store credit
  • 2nd – $25 Store credit

2  Best Basing

Basses aren’t just a way to keep your mini upright, they’re a way to extend the creativity of your mini into the environment in which it lives! We’ve seen some impressive basing in the past and we think it’s time to reward this attention to detail!


  • 3 earth-toned Reaper paints (Blackened Brown, Earth Brown, and Carrot Top Red)
  • An assortment of Bones decorative terrain bits for your next project

3  Most Creative

Based on previous contests, we expect this to be a difficult winner to choose! This category rewards your innovation and creativity!


  • 5 Reaper paints (True Blue, Sun Yellow, Imperial Purple, Leaf Green, and Blood Red)

4  Eye of the Beholder (Crowd Favorite)

Our judges step back and let the masses choose their favorite! Everyone who visits our brick-and-mortar store between Friday 09/03/21 and Thursday 09/09/21 can look at the display full of submissions and vote for the one that they like the most! Whichever mini receives the most votes is the winner!


5  Better To Be Lucky

This is a winner chosen at random from all submissions who haven’t won in any other categories! Lucky, eh?


  • A WizKids Unicorn, Reaper gold and silver paint, and a Citadel paint brush
