Freak Illustration Wars 2020



One more year Freak Wars will held Freak Illustration Wars 2020, our illustration contest with which we intend both to encourage wargamers to enter the world of illustration, as well as to test those who already master it at a high level. We want this contest to be a path for those who have just started to reach the great masters of illustration.


As this year is going to be very special due to the online version, there are a few changes that you should know:

Online format

Participating this year will only require you to fill in the participation form. To do this, you only have to click on the red link that says "FORM" and enter your data as well as those of your works presented together with their photos. Registration is free so it is the ideal time to enter the world of contests. For each miniature you will have to take between three and four photos: front, two side, and an optional rear or from another point of view if you consider it.

Dates of the competition phases:

  • 10/08 - 06/09: Online registration phase
  • 07/09 - 12/09: Popular voting phase
  • 13/09: Voting phase of the jury and announcement of the awards

Popular and judges voting

This year we are launching a popular voting phase. In the period indicated above, everyone will be able to vote on the works of others, indicating whether they like it or not. With these votes we will form a classification of the most outstanding works, choosing for each category a number of works according to the total of those presented. In this way we will avoid that deserving works are left out of the final vote of the judges. Finally, the judges will decide the award-winning miniatures.

We trust you

Every online contest has a risk of fraud. The first thing we have to say about this is that we trust you. Our community is very special, it is easy for us to get to know each other and it is usual that there is a good atmosphere when we meet. In addition, our judges are artists more than experienced in the world of contests and they can quickly differentiate when fraud is attempted. Still, we trust that it will be a contest with healthy participation :)


This year we will have a very varied set of judges who have very different illustration styles. From more wargame oriented works to purely artistic ones, the judges will be divided into the different categories to judge the works.


  • Digital & Traditional Illustration: For general public. The works has to be submitted in digital format, in PNG format. Scanned works may be submitted as long as they comply with this format.
    The works will be eligible for the prize of best illustration and therefore the Best of Show award in this contest.
  • Best of Show (BoS): It has a single prize of 80.00€ in cash that will be awarded to the best work. This award excludes winning any other award for the same work.
