Anvil - A New Event for Australian Minitature Painters

The Australian miniature painting community has welcomed a thrilling new event to its calendar: Brisbane Anvil.  This inaugural painting competition is set to take place alongside Australia’s largest Age of Sigmar teams event, the Runeaxe Team Championship, in November.

Brisbane Anvil aims to celebrate the extraordinary talent and passion within the miniature painting and modelling community. By providing a platform for artists to showcase their best work, the event hopes to inspire and challenge participants, fostering growth and refinement in their skills. 

This event is not just a competition; it’s a community-building endeavor designed to create a lively and thriving network of miniature painters.

In addition to the standard awards, judges will also give commendations for entries that deserve recognition but fall short of medal standards. Special awards include:

  • Open Category: For entries that don't fit the other two categories, such as duels, dioramas, units, or squads.



A Collaborative Effort

Zack Watson, organizer of the Brisbane Anvil, has teamed up with Gabe from RuneAxe to allow a venue, and the Brisbane Display Painting Guild to promote and support this exciting new venture. 


The Guild, which held its first meeting in April 2024 with more 30 attendees, has quickly become a hub for painters to share their passion and skills. Their presence at the Briscon gaming convention, where they recruited new members, underscores their commitment to growing the community.


Join the Movement

Brisbane Anvil is more than just a competition; it’s a celebration of the artistry and creativity that define the miniature painting community. 


Whether you’re an experienced painter or a newcomer to the hobby, this event offers an opportunity to connect with fellow enthusiasts, showcase your work, and be inspired by the incredible talent on display.
