Corvus Belli is without a doubt one of the main players in the miniature wargaming industry. Many consider the Spanish company as the next big thing, thanks to its wargame, Infinity, and it’s range of sci-fi miniatures of the highest quality, a true attraction for showcase painters.
Traditionally, the company’s main target has been wargamers. The miniatures, of exceptional design and quality, are painted beautifully by it’s lead box art painter, Ángel Giráldez. Corvus Belli is upping the stakes on the painting and hobby aspect of its business and has announced the first edition of the Infinity miniatures painting contest, Warcrow.
The first edition will take place in Vigo (Spain) during this year’s edition of the Interplanetario event.
Could this be the chance for Corvus Belli to organize a company contest like Games Workshop’s Golden Demon? Rules and categories are similar to the early GDs… Only time will tell…
In the meantime, guess what… look who’s in the jury!
It’s looking really good…
