No reply yet to my question: may we post the results of our battle here in May?


Sorry for the delay - sure I will modify this thread title and we’ll make it the game thread for May.

Hello all. Please note entries for the competition are now closed. Judging will take place over Easter and the result will be announced here and on social later in April. Thank you to all who have taken part for some wonderful vignettes.

This thread will be renamed shortly to take us up to and include news on all the WWR May games.

Thanks. It's such a great idea I'd hate to miss the fun, and it's got me painting flat out.

The laws of probability do not apply to my dice in wargames or to my finesses in bridge.

Hello all and a warm thank you to everyone who entered. We had some fantastic entries. Winner will be announced here on Sunday April 11 and also on my Instagram and Twitter accounts @winston_ab_rees on the same date.

Meanwhile the easing of restrictions in the UK means we are looking good for May 22 and 23 although obviously the situation in other countries varies. We should still have plenty of WotR games taking place internationally though on both dates.

Further info to follow too on the plans for a group Zoom call on the weekend and international score keeping for Lancaster and York! Keep painting and posting with #WorldWarRoses

Evening all, and it's time for the announcement. In short, we were utterly chuffed with the thought, care and attention that went into more than a dozen entries to this compo. We're so grateful to everyone who entered and took the time to create some wonderful vignettes, thank you everyone.

It was so tough we decided to introduce two 'commended' consolation awards. The first goes to Andy Jarvis for his Earl of Oxford piece. Judges commented on the wonderful flags, colours, and details in this. Could easily have been a winner. So close!

Our second consolation 'commended' award goes to Thew2 - who also was so close with the wonderful presentation, animation, groundwork and creativity in this one.

Finally our overall winner - Little Ninja Painting, who entered via Twitter with this incredible work showing Gloucester bowmen staking in under the watchful eye of a captain. Judges loved the colours and blends, thought that clearly went into the piece, change of height, placement etc, "a true vignette" as everyone agreed.

We're now contacting LNP and the two consolation prize winners to send out some marvellous Athena WotR miniatures to them. Thanks again to John at Athena who so kindly sponsored the comp and put up the prizes.

And again - we're absolutely honoured by the effort everyone put in and sorry if you did not win. We were impressed by all of them and I personally loved everything of course, it being a WotR fest, but we had to choose.

Great stuff.  The three winners are all well deserved. Super idea for a community competition.

As everyone else has been saying, congrats to all the winners!
All the entries look amazing, not envious of the judging panel having had to choose between them!  lol

I've had a few days free and my fighting troops aren't here yet, so I've knocked together a few WotR vignettes for the baggage trains. 10mm, please note. The more literate here, which I trust will include you, gentle reader, will recognise Somerset killing Wenlock after Tewkesbury, the death of Clarence, Dighton and Forrest babysitting the sons of Edward IV, a Son that Hath Killed his Father and a Father that Hath Killed his Son behind Henry VI, and Richard Plantagenet and the Duke of Somerset picking a few roses,
