To the Victor go the Spoils!

The winners of the inaugural 'La Bricole" painting competition have been announced!

While I didn't win, I came a creditable equal 4th along with von Blucher's 15mm AB 1806 Prussian Fusiliers and Archduke Charles' 28mm Foundry and Victrix Austrian Landwehr.

It was a lot of fun and definitely a boon in making one disciplined enough to finish a unit within a given time period . However, a few members fell by the wayside as the time pressure became too great :(.

The standards were very high and while I didn't really think I had a chance against some of the beautiful figures and painters in the competition, it didn't stop me doing the best I could. The quality was top-notch and the winners were very deserving of their prizes. Well done Bryce and Paul!

I'll be coming back for the second comp. in whatever form it takes, and I'd encourage you to join too, if you'd like to join in a bit of gentlemanly competition!

1st place:
Greystreak's Libavskii Russian Infantry Regiment (28mm Foundry)

2nd place:
Lieutenant Hausmann's Saxon Infantry Regiment (von Low's)(15mm AB)


  1. Congrats on joint 4th place! :)

  2. Well done with your Italian line troops!

  3. Well done on the placing and as you quite rightly point out it has given you the incentive to complete the unit. I'd seen Greystreak's over at the GWP, they were a bit special!

  4. Well done on the 4th position, that's some going.

  5. Congrats on 4th place. Some awesome painting in that comp from what I have seen.
