The Broken Brush Painting Competition!

This year at QC Game Fest we will be offering our very first miniature painting competition!  This miniature painting competition will be focused on amateur and novice painters for the inaugural year, with a special division specifically for K-12 students.  Please bear with us in this first year, as I’m the one (Richard Nagle) creating this competition, and I’ve never done this before.  I’ve done lots of research though, and have experience entering competitions, so I hope you all have a great experience.  Why “The Broken Brush”?  It’s to pay homage to the “broken dry brush” I’ve been painting with for years and won’t get rid of.  Hey! It’s my favorite brush!  (i.e.  I couldn’t think of anything better.)
