As for that one special entry that Ted picked personally, we have this from Ted:
"The entries for the painting contest were amazing. I was blown away to see so many talented artists choose to take part in this Rivet Wars contest. I'd like to thank everyone for adding to the Rivet Wars world through their creativity and hard work. It was difficult to pick only one entry from so many great works.
In the end, the entry by Mananarepublic
stood out for several reasons. The details are incredible from the chips on the helmets, the faded symbols to the highlights on the brass. The figures are also clean and yet have a sense of being in the trenches, their equipment worn with use. Plus each soldier is a unique character. There is the grayed panzerfaust who has seen too many winters, the bright eyed allied rifleman, the disgruntled soldier resetting his rocket, and the steeley-eyed lieutenant. These miniatures each tell a story and together form a superb display of artistic skill and craftsmanship."
So Mananarepublic :) if you have the time to come to expo and spend a few days with us, let us know immediately. If not we can always defer it to another event for you to hang with Ted. Get in touch with [email protected]
Thank you again for all the great entries, until next time!
