From simple models used in tabletop strategy and role-playing games, the painting of miniatures has developed into an art form.  The hobby features a dizzying array of tools, techniques, and personalities.  CoolMiniOrNot, along with its convention host, AdeptiCon, are making the Crystal Brush Awards a global arena for the world’s best miniature artists to display their talent.

The top three highest scorers in each of the 8 categories will receive a Crystal Brush trophy.  Each trophy is made of cut lead crystal and tipped with the appropriate place color (gold, silver, or bronze). Gold winners in each category receive a cash prize of $200, Silver winners receive $100, and Bronze winners receive $50.*See the Rules page for full details.

The top three overall winners will each receive a cash prize of $10,000, $2,000, and $1,000 respectively.  These are the most valuable awards in the miniature painting world today!

The tenth annual Crystal Brush Awards will run from March 27 to March 31 at AdeptiCon 2019 in Chicago.  Venue details are available here: http://adepticon.org.
