For the second going of the painting contest, the categories were all frothers related.

Category #1: Col Marbles miniatures, Frother's charity figures, or any figure from the Frother's sculpting contests.

The winner, by a landslide, Orctrader's fantastic Col Marbles, Zombie hunter!

Image

Category #2: Figures painted for any of the 3 FUUK tables at Salute 2012 (Frothy Races, Shadows over Froth Street, and Fantasy WW1)

My humble contribution to this mess managed to win this one. Lets hear it for Salute figures!

Number 3 is in the bag!

To see all the entries, check out the original thread.

And now on to the victors!

The single figure category was handily swept by Duff and his impressive neeemer:

Our first attempt at using the 'Open' category proved a good idea, with 3 wonderful executed units entered. Only one could destroy the rest however, and tentacles clearly help in that endeavor. Paul v2 takes the prize with his squidly folk:

See you all in #4!

I'd just like to thank everyone who supported me while painting this army, without whom I'd never have finished. I'd especially like to thank my beautiful wife, Jo, and my agent, Ari Gold.
