CMON Japan Paint Contest begins!

CMON Japan Paint Contest begins!

CMON Japanペイントコンテスト開始!
A game from CMON with a large volume of beautiful miniatures

In celebration of the KICKSTARTER campaign
CMON Japan will be holding its first ever painting contest!

CMON's roots lie in a website for posting photos of miniature paintings, and the miniatures that CMON produces are of extremely high quality and are a source of pride for the site.

These high quality miniatures look even better when painted, which adds to the excitement of the game.

Why not give it a try?

We are starting a contest so that many board game users can experience miniature painting!
Anyone can apply, whether you're someone who's just started painting miniatures through this opportunity or someone who has always enjoyed painting!

During the period, users will be asked to vote on X (formerly Twitter) for the work they think is the best from among the works submitted.

The winner of the Most Voted Award goes to...!
We are giving away the complete set of "Cthulhu: Terror of the Unknown - Death Must Die"!
(*Excluding limited quantity options)
There will also be a gift for those who participate in the vote on X!

Let's all have fun painting miniatures and playing board games!
