Heavy Metal 2023

Heavy Metal 2023 Rules


Heavy Metal 2023 asks you to strike while the iron is hot and show off your metallics skills! Submissions will be accepted from now until midnight EDT on May 31st, 2023. We encourage you to submit your entries early as no submission will be accepted after the cutoff, with no exceptions. If you need to make any changes to your upload prior to May 31st at midnight EDT (UTC -4) please contact @Hobby Wyrd via PM on the Wyrd forum. 

Theme: Metal - Non-Metallic Metal or True Metallic Metal Techniques

As always, if you’re in doubt, you can reach out to @Hobby Wyrdfor clarification.

We have two (2) categories for this contest- 

  • Single Model -  A single model on a base of appropriate scale or on a plinth of similar size. The single model should make up the majority of the submission and be the focus of the piece, not any additional accessories or details attached to the base.
  • Overachiever - Overachiever entries must meet the following criteria in addition to the theme:
    • Red Hot! The entry must incorporate heated metal. 
      • NOTE: no diorama format for this category

Participants may submit one (1) entry. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with our general competition rules found HERE.  There have been disqualifications in the past and we'd rather avoid that!


  • The piece cannot be previously displayed, shared on social media, or entered into a competition. 
    • Full repaints of models are fine, but this should be a unique piece created for the competition. 
  • Winners of the previous two Wyrd Painting Contests (below) must enter the Overachiever Category if they are submitting an entry.
    • Cast-A-Spell 2023
    • Danse Macabre 2023

NOTE: Prior to the start of voting, our contest staff reserves the right to move a submission into another category that fits more appropriately. If this occurs, affected participants will be notified via forum PM.
