Our friends at AetherCon, the annual game convention held online, are seeking entrants for their miniatures painting tournament. Entrants need to be lined up by April 1, so read on and then talk to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., AetherCon's head honcho, to get started.

AetherCon IV is looking for Miniature Companies big or small to take part in our inaugural 'Fighter, Cleric, Wizard, Rogue' Miniature Painting Tourney. There are only 16 total slots available for Company/Painter Teams. We will need as the title suggests one fighter, one cleric, one wizard, and one rogue, brand and model non-specific. Further commissions done for third parties between April 1, 2015 and September 30, 2015 will be eligible for this tourney.

Painters can be supplied by the miniature company or by us as the latter prefers.

Voting will take place at AetherCon IV from November 13-15, 2015. The format for tournament voting will be round robin group play much like the World Cup in European Football so as to give all entrants the maximum opportunity to have their efforts seen. Tournament groups will be determined and announced on social media during June 2015 and group matches will be announced in the same fashion shortly before the event in November 2015.
