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.

As we are an online convention, there are no expenses associated with travel, food etc. Moreover, there is no entry fee for the convention or this event.

Those miniature companies that take part in this tournament will gain free advertising on our site in the way or rotating ads linked to their site that appear on every page and static ads that appear on the Anvil Alley page which is a page on the site reserved for all miniature companies and links directly to the voting page.

The Anvil Alley ads will link to a shop front in which your company will be able to feature two (sets of) products for purchase via any three purchasing clients of your choice, be they internal or third party. Links to your entire product catalogue will also be made available.

Moreover, all of these shop fronts will be further linked to a secondary page called Baublebrook's Bazaar. This page will feature all of the shop fronts from AetherCon IV, miniature company, publisher and artist alike (55 in all) so as to encourage cross-pollination of all attendees between all of the above.

Their logo will also appear in our Convention Program PDF released at the beginning of November. See last year's for an example.

Those interested need only message myself for further details.

AetherCon III doubled our attendance over AetherCon II and drew nearly 1600 people over three days.

So come on out and help us grow it some more.

Come on out and be a part of the dice rolls heard 'round the world!
