Road to Crystal Brush: Capital Palette Winner!

Road to Crystal Brush: Capital Palette Winner!


September 5th, 2014


This past weekend, NOVA Open held its annual painting competition, the Capital Palette, in Washington, D.C. We’re excited to announce that this year’s Best of Show winner is John Stiening, for his Sci-Fi Large Model entry, “Imperial Knight Stomping on an Emperor’s Children Contemptor Dreadnought.” Intricate details and superb weathering helped make it the judges’ top choice among a field of well painted entries. Here’s a look at this stunning model.



As Best of Show winner, John Stiening receives the option of a plane ticket to compete at the 2015 Crystal Brush Awards during AdeptiCon in Chicago, Illinois. Congratulations to John and all the Capital Palette entrants!
