And The Winner Is...

Remember the old military maxim "no plan survives contact with the enemy"?, well for wargamers that should read "no project survives contact with shiny new figures". Despite only having the shields to finish on two phalanxes of hoplites I've been distracted sticking Zulus together. Unfortunately the FLGS didn't have the can of brown spray I needed to paint the first couple of regiments otherwise you'd be reading posts about UThulwana and InGobamakhosi!

Anyway despite rapidly getting nowhere you may remember the Cenaturides I made last month. Well as suggested I sent the picture into Wargames Factory and I was chuffed to find out today that they won Best Cavalry Unit in the Wargames Factory Mash-Up competition which apparently means I have $100 to spend in their webstore (just in time for the new Samurai cavalry!).

Some of the entries are really top quality and show a lot of creative thought (especially the Undead Samurai and Savage Orc), demonstrating what a flexible medium hard plastic for conversion projects.
