Another Year Older, Another Year Wiser


Today celebrates the one year birthday of Pit of the Oni.  I can’t believe it’s already been a year.  To celebrate Pit of the Oni turning one year old, I’ve decided to hold a friendly painting competition.  What’s in it for you?  How about a $50.00 Games Workshop gift certificate!

virtual gift voucher That’s right, $50.00, you didn’t read it wrong, I really mean $50.00 to spend on anything you want from the Games Workshop online store.  What do you have to do?  Here’s the details…

Paint any single special character from any Warhammer 40,000 race better than the competition then get everyone you know to vote for you and WIN!

Submit to me via email: Your name, your website if you have one and the special character you’re going to be submitting.  I will be accepting entries up until July 6th, after that all entries will be turned away.  I will then post all entrants and the character chosen to be submited to the contest.  After one (1) week all entrants will be required to submit a photo of their progress which in tern will be posted.  After one (1) more week all entrants will need to submit their final photo of their model and voting will commence.  Finally after one (1) last week of voting a victor will be determined.

That’s a week to get your entry in, two weeks to get you entry painted and then a week of voting.  I will reply to emails to verify entry, if you have any questions please email me.  My email address can be found in my blogger profile, but here it is just in case:

Entry deadline = July 6th | Progress photo submission = July 13th | Final Submission and Voting beings July 20th | Winner Announced July 27th

This competition is on the honor system so please don’t submit photos of already painted models.  I encourage everyone to enter and best of luck to you all.


  1. Sounds good, I think I'll take part in this.
    Just one question: Does the mini have to be
    on a regular gaming base, or can I do a little
    showbase too?

  2. The model can be based however you want.

  3. Wow! This is very generous of you. I have a lot of special character models floating around my bitz box... this is a great reason to get one of 'em painted. Expect an entry from me soon!

  4. @ Techpriest - Looking forward to it. :)

  5. Congratulations on a year. Here is to many more to come.

    Hmmm... What to paint...

    And how many things can we submit?

  6. @ Gothmog - To keep things as fair as possible please only submit a single entry. Thanks. :)

  7. Does it have to be a special character or can it be any 40k model?

  8. Your entry can be any Warhammer 40,000 model, but that model should represent a special character.

    For example: If you don't like the Kayvaan Shrike miniature and modeled your own, or if the special character does not have it's own miniature such as Sergeant Bastonne or Gunnery Sergeant Harker and you have to model your own. It is perfectly acceptable to enter these.

  9. Can I enter a guardsman marbo? He is a unique character! I would love to!

  10. xnay that last comment. I have to paint up a new one. Perhaps another special character! expect something good!

  11. Absolutely, you can submit a Guardsman Marbo.

    The special character does not need to be an HQ, just a special character. Special characters that may not have the Unique trait, but only allow for one in an army are also acceptable such as Space Marine Sergeant Talion.

  12. well I just sent oyu an email about entering kell. Too bad I painted up marbo last week or so, he would have been perfect for this! Either way, kell should be good to start painting. Thanks
