  1. FYI Participants, I'm working on the back end gallery stuff today and tomorrow. If I've reached out to you about your submission, please respond asap!
  2. As our online presence continues to grow, we are looking for those interested in moderation of the Play Wyrd Discord server! Details: Who: Established members of the Wyrd community who have a positive and respectful voice throughout their communications with community members and Wyrd Staff. What: A small team of volunteers who are familiar with the ins and outs of Discord and are willing to ensure that the Discord channel follows our Community Code of Conduct. When: As Wyrd Staff cannot be available at all times, we need individuals who are able and willing to be online to monitor the Play Wyrd server during the day, especially between the hours of 2300-1100 (11 pm - 11 am) UTC. Where: The Official Play Wyrd Discord Channel! The invite can be found here. How: If you are interested, please fill out the application form here!
  3. “Help me, I’m flaming. I must be a hundred and nine.” -Elvis Presley The temperature’s rising at Wyrd HQ, and even Waldo’s feeling it. He keeps asking for a Slip ‘n Slide to be installed in the warehouse. Now that I think of it that would make travel from one side to the other much quicker… Maybe he’s onto something this time. To help us beat the heat, we’re doing another Painting Contest! The theme for this one is “Hot, Hot, Hot!” Glowing hot weapons, scorching deserts, flames that spread like wildfire… we want to see it all! Miniatures can be submitted any time during the contest, though none will be showcased until the day voting begins. Submissions will be accepted from now until 11:59 pm EST (UTC -5) on July 28th, 2021. We encourage you to submit your entries early as no submission will be accepted after the cutoff, no exceptions. If you need to make any changes to your upload by July 28th 11:59 pm EST (UTC -5) please contact @Hobby Wyrd via PM on the Wyrd forum. Entries are to be submitted HERE. All entries must fit the theme. As this has a broad theme, below serves as a list of examples but is not meant to be exhaustive: Incorporate fire as a focus for the submission (such as a flame elemental, mage with fire, etc.) Depict climates/environments of extreme heat Heated metal, flaming weapons, fireballs, etc. Basically, if it would make the infamous Anasalea Kaeris’ eyes light up, go for it! As always, if you’re in doubt, you can reach out to @Hobby Wyrd for clarification. We have two (2) categories for this contest- Single Model and Diorama/Vignette. Participants may submit one (1) entry per category. Please note that our criteria for Singles and Diorama have changed. They are as follows: Singles: 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. If the base is the main focus of the submission, then the submission belongs in the Diorama/Vignette category. Diorama/Vignette: This category is focused on storytelling through the use of miniatures and basing. For the purposes of Wyrd Painting Competitions, the submission uses one (1) or more figures in additional to other materials. The emphasis is on the entire piece and the scene/story being presented. Make sure to take some time to familiarize yourself with our general competition rules found HERE. NOTE: Prior to the start of voting, our contest staff reserve the right to move a submission into another category that fits more appropriately. If this occurs, affected participants will be notified via forum PM. Prizes - Each category will have the following prizes: 1st Place: $75 in Wyrd webstore credit 2nd Place: $50 in Wyrd webstore credit 3rd Place: $25 in Wyrd webstore credit Best of Awards - The Wyrd Staff will take a look at all the categories and vote to determine the winner for each of the following: Best of Hot, Hot, Hot!: $100 USD cash prize (via PayPal) - Voted on by Wyrd Staff Best of Wyrd Miniature Entry: One (1) Nightmare Box of winner's choice (from a list of available Nightmare sets) - Voted on by Wyrd Staff Voting Due to unsportsmanlike behavior in the past, I need to reiterate that the votes need to come from active forum members. We will be post restricting the polls, so only active accounts with a minimum of ten (10) posts (not all in the same day) will be able to vote.
  4. I felt that Gummie wanted to feel pretty in pink. Also, some shading with a darker orange. I've been practicing some techniques from a painting class I attended a bit ago. What are your favorite techniques that you've leaned? What are some you want to learn?

    Explorers tell the tale of a mysterious creature that lives deep in the forests, way way beyond the edges of Malifaux City and the faintest ideas of civilization. Its presence is said to be heralded by the sounds of the small critters that follow it - little paws shuffling, birds singing, leaves whispering, branches cracking like bone... Some rare accounts of its presence are even more surreal. Peg-Leg James from the fur shop once told about one of his hunts a few days past the Solstice, when the temperatures were rising and animals were leaving their shelters from the winter. He talked about seeing something moving among the trees, vaguely humanoid but much much taller. Where before there was only cold and dead ground, grass and flowers sprouted from the soil as its feet landed with heavy thuds. Where the terrain was softer and its feet sank deeper, springs of crystalline water started to flow to form pools and small rivers. It was as if this creature's march was bringing the spring back to the earth, and with it came life. If you choose to believe this tale, I would advise you to stay away from the woods when the autumn festivals are over, all the fruits have been picked and the leaves have turned brown and fallen. If that creature is really able to bring the woods back to life for spring, I would hate to know what does when the winter is here...
