had their third annual Jump Masters Painting Contest. I noticed that they had a category for "Really Big" models this year so I decided to bring this big fatty along. Not only did I win first in the Big model category, I also ended up getting the best in show award. I came home with some awesome trophies, two gigantic swag bags and free round trip airfare to Adepticon. Whoa. I am still wrapping my head around all of this. Huge thanks to Rob Chandler to putting together this great painting competition at Dropzone, he really went all out. The trophies are great and the volume of prizes is frankly mindblowing. Also thanks to Brien Dulaney for sending me copies of the photos above. There were tons of great models in the competition and I continue to be impressed by the level of painting I've seen at smaller, regional show the last couple of years.
Finally here is a shot of the model I would have picked for the big winner:
