Join us for another instalment of The Weekender where we're sitting down to look at some more awesome models from the Celestial Painting Competition AND presenting you folks with a new Terrain Challenge.

We've got lots to get stuck into this week so let's dive in...

Celestial Painting Competition

This week we've got entries from Sergey Chasnyk, Sergio Calvo Rubio, Ben Komets, Antonio Peña Jiménez, and Massimiliano Richiero who have created some sterling projects.

Remember that you can check out all of the entries and more over on the Facebook Group where you can also vote for your favourite. You can also learn about each of the artists HERE.

We've teamed up with 4Ground once more to bring you another Terrain Challenge for this year.


This one is titled The End Is Nigh and here are the details...

Make sure to get your ideas down into the Projects system and we'll see where this one goes!


We've got some big updates to remind you of as well. There will be a new Infinity Campaign launching soon and the guys from Corvus Belli have been previewing more about the overall idea and the individual factions in video format. 

We also have the UK Games Expo Press Round-Up where we've teamed up with all manner of press outlets who came to the event to show off their content, views, experiences and more from this wonderful show. 


We have a dip into the news to find out what's been going on...

What from the news caught your attention?

Wargaming Kursk!

With the anniversary of Kursk around the corner, John and Justin sit down with Jim, our Historical Editor, to go through what you can expect from his new article series which launches on July 2nd.

It features a lot of tanks so John is very happy indeed!


We also look towards Kickstarter and some new projects which are fundraising right now

  • Tang Garden - A peaceful and meditative game where you look to create wondrous gardens for your visitors
  • Evil Corp - Play as shady and shadowy business giants looking to save the world...just not for you

Which of these would you go for?

Make sure, as always, to get your thoughts into the comments below about the show and everything we've covered and prepare your hobby materials for that terrain challenge!

Have a great weekend!
