If you haven't been to an open style competition before, you might not know that you can include some additional information with your entry. You'll be given a card with the entry number on it to display next to the entry. You should definitely write on it that it's a scratch 3D sculpt. You are also welcome to include additional info like a photo of the render, and/or of the print before you paint it, or a copy of a sketch you might have done in the planning stages, a brief description of the creation process, stuff like that.

And make sure that you do this!

 

Must remember to do this for this year...

 

Oh wow alright, I'll definitely remember to do this! Thanks everyone!

I would imagine Knarthex meant his diorama from last year based on the cover from the Waterdeep book in Forgotten Realms.  I believe he forgot to include a copy of the cover so others could see what he was referencing / recreating.  

 

Okay, I saw that piece it wasn't in my batch to judge.

I'm reasonably sure I actually gained a point or two because one of the judges didn't read my card closely. I got a 1, 2, 3 spread of points. When I talked to one of the judges, he started talking about how I could improve the kitbash job I'd one on the model. I had to explain that the base was the bit I'd done all the crafty things to, and the model was stock. I'd mentioned that on the card, but he'd managed to miss it. I ended up with 6 points, so depending on how many points he gave for that misconception, there's a good chance Demogorgon should've been certificate of merit.

 

I'm going to make damned sure I put in something at least bronze level into Open next time I attend, though.

      As if I didn't already have so many projects in progress I can't count, I kept looking at the case of Bones IMEF figures, and thought "These guys need something that can take out a few NOVA Corp Tycho AFVs."
       
      This concept was born:

       
      I am shooting for it to be about the size of a GW Land Raider. Going to block it out in Fusion 360 soon.

      Hey all! Got this resin fig at ReaperCon 2016 and decided to base him using a Basius basing pad with some swampy/murky/creepy terrain. 
       
      My goal was to emphasize that this disciple is unconcerned with his cleanliness, and is a deadly foe.
       
      I managed to work up a color scheme that speaks to faded Christmas colors which led me into an adventure idea wherein this summoner is bringing a twisted version of Krampus into existence for the holidays

      Hello fine people (and other assorted things) of the Reaper forum!
       
      Continuing in our project of teaming up to show you two different methods to go about painting the same miniature, Buglips and I decided that we would do a WIP thread for Con Crud, Convention Zombie from the 2017 Reapercon swag bag! He's a great little figure, sculpted by Gene Van Horne, that we thought we could have some fun with.
       
      This will be our second shared WIP thread in this series of ours, in case you missed it, check out our first one where we painted Thanis the Bonecaller:
       
      As with that one, I will be covering my usual method of painting for display, and Buglips will be approaching the figure with his own usual "fast-but-decent method." As with the last one, Buglips' method will be much faster than mine will be and you'll get to see where our two styles diverge. We will be sharing our own issues, thoughts and methods with you in the hopes that someone will find such things useful.
       
      So on to the mini!
      Here's my Con Crud, fresh out of his blister:

       
      I prepped him in my usual way, with some diamond files to grind off the mold lines and bit of flash that you can see on his outstretched foot and hand. He has some notable mold lines through his hair and back and down the left (his left) side of his face. I'll show you throughout the process how I'll tackle those.
       
      So here he is after I primed him with Reaper's Brush-On Primer in white, thinned down with some water. As usual, I only did one thin coat so as not to obscure the details on him and I took a couple of additional shots from different angles so you can see some of the mold lines that I'll need to work on a little more down the road.
