We have five (5) categories this year for this year's Rotten Harvest. Participants may submit one (1) entry per category. Please take a moment to peruse the rules outlined here for all single and diorama entries.
"It's Alive!"(Individual model, Kit-Bashed) - A Kit-Bash contest. Show us your spookiest kit-bashed miniature! Entries will need to include their "recipe list", aka what companies/components make up your stitched-together creation. Entries made of over 50% Wyrd miniature parts will be eligible for the “Best Wyrd Miniature” Prize
Monster Hunters and Ghost Busters (Diorama Event, multiple models in a scene) - Celebrating those who fight all the things that go Bump in the Night!
Creep Show(Individual model, large and/or monster) - A menagerie of monsters, creatures and creepy critters! This is not for your undead things, that’s the category below.
Hello, Boils and Ghouls(Individual model, undead themed) - Bring out your (un)dead! Vampires, Ghosts, Liches, wailing spirits or anything humanoid that has shuffled off this mortal coil.
Unfathomable Horror (Individual model, catch-all) - Got a terrifying or spooky entry that doesn't fall into one of the above categories? This catch-all category is for you then! Miniatures that don't quite fit in any of the others but are otherwise horror/Halloween themed go here.
The voting polls will open on November 4th and remain open until midnight EST (MGT -5) on November 10th. The winner in each category will be awarded to the entry that receives the most confirmed votes. Every forum member has one (1) vote per category. In the case of a tie, Wyrd will have an internal vote to decide the winner.
