Last month, we invited you to share with us pictures of your models and figures, to showcase how our titles have inspired your work.

The theme for our first month of the competition was World War II, to which we received a whole host of brilliant entries, making choosing a winner particularly difficult.Thank you to all of you who submitted your pictures. However, after deliberating, our panel of judges have chosen our winner, who will be receiving a great selection of recent releases.

Below is the winning entry by Gareth Evans, whose diorama was inspired by Campaign 104: D-Day 1944 (2) – Utah Beach & the US Airborne Landings by Steven J. Zaloga.

One of our judges, Phil Smith, said this of the winning entry:

Aside from the excellent modelling and paintwork, everything in the composition – the figures, the vehicle, and the background – works well together. There’s a wonderful story being told with this piece – the sergeant looking distinctly unimpressed with a seemingly apologetic crewman, and the rest of the crew distracted from their work by the action in the distance.

Congratulations once again to Gareth! A special mention also goes to Steve Beckett and Paulo Pereira, whose entries made it even harder to select a winner.

Our competitions don’t end there, as tomorrow we’ll be announcing our January Miniature Modelling Competition. Don’t forget to check the blog and our social media tomorrow to find out the theme and the prize.
