  1. After being pelted by the sweltering summer heat, the relentless sun finally begins to set. Soon, beneath the glistening moonlight, the city comes alive. Streets glow from lanterns and hung torches. Taverns with fresh ale welcome you in with both candlelight and faint neon magic. And even the darkest of alleyways flicker with well-lit cigars and glowing eyes. Even in the night, the darkness is kept at bay. City Nights is our first light-based painting contest, focusing primarily on Object Source Lighting (OSL) to light up characters by using the light from objects on the model itself, highlighting both the glow of the object and the darkness behind its shadows. Let’s shine a light on the details: Submissions will be accepted from now until midnight EST (UTC -4) on August 14th, 2022. 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 August 14th at midnight EST (UTC -4) please contact @Hobby Wyrd via PM on the Wyrd forum. Entries are to be submitted HERE. Theme: Lighting effects, such as OSL, glow effects, or playing with light and shadow. Examples include: Streetlamps reflected in water. Neon Signs OSL from headlights, tail lights, streetlights 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 - 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: Diorama/Vignette of an urban environment 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! Reminder: 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. 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 - The Single Model Category will have the following prizes: Community Poll - Based on Community vote for each model in the Category 1st Place: $75 in Wyrd webstore credit 2nd Place: $50 in Wyrd webstore credit 3rd Place: $25 in Wyrd webstore credit The Overachiever Category will have the following Prizes: Community Poll - Based on Community vote for each model in the Category 1st Place: $300 in Wyrd webstore credit 2nd Place: $200 in Wyrd webstore credit 3rd Place: $100 in Wyrd webstore credit ‘Best of’ Awards!

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'.

  8. 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.
  9. 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.
