I have done a horrible job of promoting it this year but I plan to attempt it again. Anyone interested?
What: World Wide Miniatures Day 2017
When: July 22nd (ish) – I say (ish) cuz it’s flexible. If you can’t do it this day, do the next day, or the day after. This event is designed to be fun and inclusive to everyone as much as possible.
Where: Your place, your friendly local game store, your paint club, or where-ever you like.
What: This is the fun part. WWMD is a celebration of this hobby we love while enjoying sharing our obsessions with others who can truly understand. Also to bring in new people to the wonder and engrossing pastime.
How: We celebrate it by doing anything related to the hobby. Anything! Some activities include: Painting, cleaning, prepping, priming, purchasing, trading, reading about, watching videos, organizing, talking about, driving to and from your FLGS, teaching classes, researching, playing games with miniatures, planning miniature game, building a gaming table, paint rack, display case, basing miniatures, collecting basing materials, writing posts or articles, photographing miniatures, constructing sentences with the word miniature in them. Really ANYTHING that can be connected back to this hobby.
Cost: Just your sanity
Motto: No rules. No Prizes. No regrets.
Why: Really? You have read this far and you are asking why? The simple answer is – because we can and we should. Why not?
Marathon Challenge: Can you do something miniatures related for 24 hours taking breaks only to eat and go to the bathroom? This challenge is for you. It is based on the honor system but it would be really cool to post pictures of your work in progress.
Half Marathon Challenge: Same as the marathon only its 12 hours.
5K Challenge: 5 hours – you get the idea.
Complete any of the above challenges and pm me your address and I will send you a ribbon. How cool is that?
