The Dark Sword Miniatures Manufacturer Awards are open to all painters. To be eligible for the prize support listed, the entries must be new entries, never before posted online or entered into any other painting competitions. In addition, no entries can be commissions from Dark Sword Miniatures for painted studio models. This means Dark Sword studio painters can enter if they so desire, but their entries must be brand new creations not commissioned from Dark Sword and must also adhere to the eligibility requirements above.

 

Kabuki - 300 Euro Prize for the best Kabuki Miniature, regardless of category, in the painting competition. We are looking for a way to involve Rodolfo in the judging this year.

 

Bombshell Miniatures

Bombshell Miniatures presents the 2018 Golden Maelee Awards. This is a Sponsored Award section of the annual Reaper Master Series Open Painting Contest. Entries will be awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place Maelee trophies.
 
Entries will need to feature at least one or more Bombshell Miniatures as the prominent subject. This can be anything from Babes, Sidekicks, Kritterkins, to robots, or busts. Each entry will be judged on its own merit of painting execution, presentation, and skill.

Entries from artists who have been professionally commissioned by Bombshell Miniatures are ineligible.

 

Scale 75

Best Scale 75 75MM or Bust

         $50.00 Coupon to our web store. 

 

Best Smog Rider (CHIBI)

Best CAV "Squad": This category allows for multiple models (minimum four

Best CAV Diorama: This category covers models with a scenic base where the

Each category winner will receive a $100 Talon Games Gift Certificate and a
Trophy.

 

HMGS

HMGS is proud to announce that the organization is sponsoring awards for Best Historical Single Figure and Best Historical Machines of War in the Reaper Con 2018 Master Series Painting competition. 

That's all I know about it, I have no idea what prizes will be offered for this.

 

This first post in the thread will be updated with other manufacturers as we receive them.

I have received the Talon Games information for CAVs. The first post has been updated. At this point I believe that this will be all the manufacturers participating this year.

What does it take for a miniatures company to sponsor an award? Have you ever contacted Mithril miniatures about being a sponsor for a manufacturer's award?

It doesn't take much more than contacting me and setting it up. I do regularly go out and solicit manufacturers to see if they want to sponsor awards but its not an easy pitch, mostly because its a "Reaper" convention. I'm sure I have reached out to Mithril in the past but this year I was pressed for time and only asked those that have sponsored awards in the past and I knew would be in attendance or are just happy to be able to give them out.

I have added the HMGS awards for Best Historical Single Figure and Best Historical Machines of War. At this point I do not know what types of prizes are being offered. I will elaborate on the details if/when I receive them.

      Here is our current adventuring party for Iron Kingdoms.  We started a new campaign shortly after Reapercon, so I was able to make use of several of the convention minis.
      This party is quite an odd mix of races.  Lately, I've been quite fond of having a semi-cohesive color pallet for our adventuring parties.  The last one I did was all in cold blues, so with this one I went for a very warm pallet.
       
      Lil is an investigator who 'secretly' is a Thamar Advocate.  She's just the stock mini of the vampire hunter from Reapercon (by Bob Ridolfi)


      This Pygmie Troll is very fond of hitting things and also alcohol.  He was made by resculpting the head and hands from the Jason Weibe's Dwarf Brewmaster (07015)


      Our resident Bone Grinder was made from Bobby Jackson's River Widow (03913).  I only made superficial changes to her (adding a few extra bone-grindy items to her belt).
      ]
       
      For our Trollkin Axe Flinger, it turns out that we already had the perfect mini.  This is the version from the Undercity Board Game.


      This Outcast Skorne Bushwacker/Warlock was made by simply head swapping a Malifaux rifleman.


      This Lazy Cyclopes (under the command of the Warlock) was a sculpt that I made quite a few years ago.  I showed it off to several sculptors at Gencon, and they all gave me some pointers on things that I could improve on.  Still, I was fond enough of him that I decided to paint him up.

      Last night I took a painting lesson from a friend who happens to have won many awards for mini painting and this year won Grand Master in Lock and Load 2018. So for the model of choice we choose to paint the Reapercon Sophie. We both painted one and this is what I ended up with.
      First model I have painted fully in maybe 10 years.
       
      Gothic Sophie.

      I thought this year would be my last ReaperCon. Somewhere along the line, I forgot the joy of speed painting and just painting miniatures for tabletop quality that I can use for gaming, etc. Somewhere along the line miniature painting became something that had to 'wow' or be appropriate for competition.
       
      I rediscovered my love of miniature painting at the Speed Painting, Sophie Says, and Paint by Die Roll tables at ReaperCon 2018; having 45-60 minutes to paint a miniature was such an exhilarating challenge and I present to you my fun!!!
       
      Barnabus the pirate was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Esme was a Speed Paint.
      Judas was a Sophie Says. 
      Michelle was a Speed Paint.
      Ogre was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Sekhmet was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Trista was a Sophie Says.

      Reaper released a new miniature for each of the 4 factions at ReaperCon this year. 
      This was the release that represented the River Widows: a woman and a big axolotl, both sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
      (I figured that "Cailleach" was Gaelic but I didn't know how to say it.  A web-search says it is like "Kal-ee-akh".  The diphthong "ai" is the sound in our word "pal", not "pile".)
      I put both figures on one 30mm round base, with a tree stump that I sculpted for her to stand on.
       
       
       
      I did an image-search for axolotl colors.  There are black, brown, green, yellow, pale pink/white ... but apparently the lighter colors are rare in wild specimens and more common for pets.  I chose light olive-green (with dark mottling) with reddish gills, similar colors to what Cailleach is wearing.  (But see below for how it would look as a lighter color.)
      I can imagine people getting this axolotl figure to use on its own, for dioramas, etc.
       
      I changed her hair a bit to match Talin's concept art more closely (shown here in a photo from the ReaperCon program).

       
      The stock miniature has wavy hair covering both ears.  I cut away the mass of hair on the right and sculpted a new ear and curls.  I also added some sharper curls on the left side.

       
      If I hadn't done that conversion, the figure would have looked more like this:

       
      A quick experiment to make the axolotl lighter-colored:

       
      Enjoy,
      Derek
