So, we had another painting competition. In order to get excited about Age Of Sigmar, all things hobby, and as a reminder to all that the reason most of us regular ass mortals play these games is because FUN! The script was two categories. Coolest Single Miniature and Coolest Unit.

The winners will be decided by the OG Corehammer Mournival, but please reply & comment with your preferences. The prize package will be an Age Of Sigmar unit box of your choice along with a CH shirt, a limited edition print and whatever other junk we have lying around.
