  1. Autumn grows closer, the air is beginning to cool, and the nights are growing longer. As the leaves change color and fall, we want to celebrate this spookiest of the seasons. Round about the paint pot go; On the palette throw Royal blue and bloody red; Thirty-one Days of Dread; Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and paint pot bubble. That's right, it's Rotten Harvest time! Miniatures can be submitted any time during the contest, though none will be showcased until the day voting begins. Submissions will be accepted from October 1st until 11:59 PM EST (GMT -5) on October 31st, 2021. We encourage you to submit your entries early, no submission will be accepted after the cutoff, no exceptions. If you need to make any changes to your upload prior to 11:59 PM October 31st EST (GMT -5), please contact @Hobby Wyrd via PM on the Wyrd forum. Entries are to be submitted here: Rotten Harvest 2021 Gallery Please note that you will be unable to see your entry once it is submitted. If you want confirmation of the entry, you must reach out to @Hobby Wyrd via forum PM so she may address you directly. We have four (4) 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. • SPOOKTACKULAR - (Dioramas/Vignettes) - Give your all for this spooky scenic event. Your spooky scene must contain one or more models and be based 50mm or larger. • THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT (Individual Model) - Creatures, critters, monsters, and other things that have a tendency towards anti-social behavior and prowl the night looking for victims. Caution, here be Monsters! And those that hunt them! • WITCHES AND WARLOCKS (Individual Model) - Spellcasters of all sorts. If they carry a wand, cast a spell, or even have a hint of mysticism to them, this is the category for them. • NOT QUITE DEAD YET (Individual Model)- Stumbling around after all the major organ functions have shut down? Have a beef with the living? This category is for the Undead, or as they like to be called the 'Living Impaired'. The voting polls will open on November 2nd and remain open until 11:59 PM EST (GMT -5) on November 8th. The winner in each category will be awarded to the entry that receives the most confirmed votes. Each eligible member has three (3) votes per category. All 3 votes must be used. Anyone with more or less than three (3) votes will have their votes pulled and the tally recounted. Again, for complete Wyrd painting competition rules, please go here! 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 Rotten Harvest: $100 USD cash prize (via PayPal) - Voted on by Wyrd Staff Best of Wyrd Miniature Entry: One (1) Nightmare Box of winner's choice (from a list of available Nightmare sets) - Voted on by Wyrd Staff Show your support! Lastly, show your fellow hobbyists some support! Comment on every entry in the Gallery with encouragement or thoughts and be entered for a drawing! Ten (10) 10$ USD digital gift cards will be given to commenters drawn at random. 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) forum posts (not all in the same day) will be able to vote.
  2. “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.
  3. Happy Holidays! As you might already know from the announcement, we are running three contests to celebrate, which you can read about below. All pieces can be submitted any time during the contest, though none will be showcased until the day voting begins. Submissions will be accepted from Thursday, December 12th, 2019 until midnight EST (UTC -5) on January 12th. Submissions after the cutoff date will not be accepted, no exceptions. Your entry will not be visible until voting starts. If you need to make a change upload the image again and inform @Kimberly via PM on the Wyrd forum to remove the old file. The voting polls will open on January 14th, 2020 and remain open until midnight EST (UTC -5) on January 21st, 2020. The winner will be decided by whichever entry receives the most votes. Every forum member has 1 vote for each contest. In the case of a tie, Wyrd will have an internal vote to decide the winner. As a reminder, entries cannot have been displayed in any forum elsewhere on the internet, social media, or published mediums such as magazines. All contest entries will be displayed anonymously so as to give no one person an unfair advantage (this isn’t a popularity contest) and thus there can be no signatures or watermarks upon them. This includes naming the photo or file. No announcing on forums, webpage, blogs or any other type of medium about the entry, nor concept or WIP photos. 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 10 posts (not all in the same day) will be able to vote.

  4. Heya Wyrdos! The votes have been tallied and our Rotten Harvest 2019 winners chosen. Coming in 1st Place is @Diddick with their spectral wolf entry! 2nd place goes to @Caedrus with their well entry, and 3rd place goes to @Wintergloom with their witchy rotten belle! The Staff Favorite Wyrd Model award goes to @Senya1987 with their Rotten Belle piece. In addition, every qualifying participant that did not place will receive a $10 USD gift certificate to the Wyrd Webstore! For ease of record keeping, please send a message to @Kimberly with your entry number so you can receive your prizes! I would like to take a moment to address an issue with this year's competition. Some entries were disqualified for breaking the anonymity rule. Remember, the primary point of our competitions is to have fun and encourage the hobby aspect of miniature gaming, but some people have focused too much on the prize and forgot about fairness. Entries that had votes from accounts made only to vote were removed from consideration. Come on, we can track account creation and IP addresses, it's not hard to catch folks who are trying to play outside the rules. In the past, some competition voting has had a requirement of 10 posts in order for the vote to count. If problems continue, then that rule may be implemented again. We don't like adding more restrictions for participating in our contests and competitions, so please ensure that as a participant you adhere to both the letter and spirit of our rules. Congratulations to our winners, and remember to PM @Kimberly with your entry number so you can claim your prize!

The boards will be prepared, the achievement sheets printed and ready, and prizes set as well. The best part is that to encourage new and 'rookie' players, the event itself is free!

Here's what to know: When: Saturday, Jan. 19th. 11 AM - 6 PM Where: Dragon's Den, Poughkeepsie NY (www.gamersgambit.com) Why: To have fun and cheat fate, obviously.

  10. I will be hosting a Halloween Story Encounter Tournament at the Hobby Town in Fort Collins, CO. This will be a 31 soulstone event, starting at 10:30AM. Single faction. $10 entry fee. I will also be hosting a single model painting competition alongside. Just bring any Wyrd mini that you have painted and did not enter in my last single mini event. This does not have to be a model from your chosen faction. Anything Wyrd goes.
  11. I run several events in the local area, but they are generally to small to pull from prise support for a Best Painted award. However, I really like seeing beautifully painted models. My solution: the Dwead Paintwing Contwests. These will be a contest held at my other events, where players and non-players can enter a single Wyrd model for free, and compete to win a Dwead Piwate Wuppwecht put up by me. Thus, entry fees can go to prises and I can still have my painting contest. The first event will be my upcoming tournament on August 11th at Hobby Town Fort Collins, CO. http://www.wyrd-games.net/showthread.php?34093-August-11th-Malifaux-Tournament-Fort-Collins-CO Event number two will be on August 19th at the same, during our biannual Iron Man Painting event. All are welcome to stop by for 24+ hours of model painting in preparation for Tacticon. This is not a Wyrd only event, bring whatever you want to paint. My contest is Wyrd only though(what, I like them better) and I will judge on Sunday afternoon.
