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)

         $50.00 Coupon to our web store.

 

Bet Scale 75 piece overall piece by a junior

         Smog Rider Starter set.

 

Talon Games

Best Individual CAV Model: Any single-model figure.

Best CAV "Squad": This category allows for multiple models (minimum four
models) as part of a cohesive squad.

Best CAV Diorama: This category covers models with a scenic base where the
entry is telling a story to the viewer and may include multiple models.

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.

      Yes, a 2020 ReaperCon WIP! And a massive undertaking at that. I'm trying very hard not to nerd out and put this whole project into, er, Project. There's just so many pieces to keep track of, that maybe I'll just use this first post to keep track of things.
       
      Some background stuff, starting with a quote from the "Paint a giant robot! Group WIP" where I wrote some of what's planned:
       
      You can read the rest of that post here: Paint a giant robot post and a second one to see where I'm going with this: PLA print post in same topic
       
      Biggest takeaway is that, while useful, my PLA printer can only do so much. I have a resin printer backed on Kickstarter, but considering it's now 3 years late, I don't think I should hold my breath on it ever showing up. Especially when I can get a new Elegoo Mars resin printer with more capability for relatively cheap (<$300). The PLA machine was bought with both hobby and household goals in mind, and it's served well. But the resolution just ain't there! More on that down the posts.
       
      I also had the chance to gain some experience on  paper plants at ReaperCon (Main post for that in the Terrain section post here: Vellum Paper Plants - Alien Jungle (WIP)
       
      Basically, I have the scrap booking machine to make my own alien plants:
       
      Which now leads me to this WIP. This is going to tie all those pieces together. The robot WIP will still be to get a good camo scheme, but that print job is not going to be used for the final diorama. Instead, that will be the resin printer's job. So, let's break down the WIP work that I can see so far, and will be edited later to add things and mark completions.
       
      Tasks to be completed:
       
      Figures Needed
      Wight (being pulled down backwards, caught by hidden lines) Gremlin Unit 01 (stole a supply crate and ran; actually just bait to get the larger CAV to follow) Gremlin Units 02 and 03 (trip line pair, successfully snagging Wight across the chest) Gremlin Units 04 and 05 (trip line pair, successful across another part of the chest) Gremlin Unit 06 (burner unit, cut Wight's left gun in two) Gremlin Units 07 and 08 (trap door unit, hiding entrance to jungle path with camo doors strapped to them) Gremlin Units 09 and 10 (trip line pair, successful across right thigh) Gremlin Units 11 and 12 (trip line pair, broken cable across chest, possibly falling over from sudden jolt) Gremlin Unit 13 (ECM unit, some large radar dish looking thing) Gremlin Units 14, 15 and 16 (cargo units, loaded up with stolen supplies and headed out) Gremlin Units 17, 18, 19, and 20 (gun units) Gremlin Units 21, 22, and 23 (missile units) Gremlin Unit 24 (large gun unit) Gremlin Unit 25 and 26 (junked units; scavenged for parts?) Gremlin Unit 27 (2nd style missile unit) Gremlin Unit 28 (personnel carrier unit)  
      Wight Conversion
      Right Leg: cut from pelvis; reposition Feet: cut off both feet and swap positions since the tread is only on one foot Base: cut away from right foot, possibly keeping full base around left foot Left arm (maybe): cut gun into two pieces, having one falling to the ground after being cut by a heat lance/chainsaw rope  
      Details to be included
      Camo doors at front leaving marks on the dirt path, but hiding the ambush from the main trail Pieces of old broken larger CAV units around Wight gun cut in two, maybe showing inner details. May have to 3D print an add-on piece Dust being kicked up by the stolen crate (going to try using dyed cotton) IN WORK One cable snapping dynamically, with several bends and twists (superglue on thread?) Multiple vehicle tracks around camp Campfire and tents for people A latrine Other camp details (laundry, chairs, sports equipment, bored carvings, etc)  
      Jungle Plants (V=Vellum cuts, B=bought, S=Sculpted, F=Found, P=Printed)
      Large lotus flower like plants, but dry land and maybe odd colors with a large conifer cone growing from the middle (V) Jester hat plant (balls on stems around a central point) (V) COMPLETED Spiky yucca like plant (V) Jagged leaf plant (V) Tentacle plant (V) Tripod trees (three spoke trunks) (V) Large palm fronds (S) Coral like trees (P) Horn tree (lots of horn shaped leaves from a central trunk) (P, V) Ball vine (like ivy but with odd leaf shapes) (V) Cabbage-like jungle plants with large wrinkled leaves (V) Fuzzy vines (thin wire coated with static grass) (S) Anything I can buy from N/HO scale train setups and painted alien-ish (B) Reaper figures that can be clipped and painted to be plants (B) Odd trees with strange leaf shapes (onion shaped) (V) IN WORK Random grass-like jungle plants (V) IN WORK Stem ends from mandarin oranges (seriously, pull one off and look at it, stem towards the ground) (F) Anything and everything else (VBSFP)  
      Base mounting system
      Design and print modular tiles with bristles on top (basically, Bristle Block toys) Allows mounting of all the above jungle plants Fill in around plants with thinned plaster via a syringe to create the ground surfaces

      I just got done painting this amazing figure!

      So Reapercon 2019 was great as far as my classes went.  I taught 6 courses, all were sold out, most were 2 people beyond capacity (which was fine because I was ready for that possibility)  But I feel like 6 was just 1 too many to organize, prep, practice and deliver.  All of my classes seemed to be very much enjoyed by those who attended and I got some awesome feedback from some folks.
       
      so..  which one to not do...  that's a hard question as I enjoyed all of them.
       
      first, the must keeps. 
      Water Effects.  that class probably could have sold out 2 or 3 times.  so many want to take that so its in.
      Realistic Gore.  Overwhelming high praise from a lot of folks, so thats in.  plus its it's ridiculously fun for me.
      Weathering and aging.  This is an easy one for me to teach, always sells out and gets great reviews.  Kind of have to keep due to demand.
       
      Up for debate.
      Dragons.  I have taught multiple variants of this class.  Its not bad, and folks seem to like it but Im not sure if the demand is still high.
      Tabletop painting.  Sells out but slowly.  Its one of my strengths though.  fast painting at a high tabletop level.  
      Kids classes.  I do these mainly to ensure that the kids programming continues to grow.  The little artists amaze me every time.  Its a lot of fun and full of surprises by talented young artists.  may need to keep on principle.
       
      other subjects I have taught but not sure if folks still would be interested.  
      woodland bases, lava bases, ice and snow bases.
      batch painting.
      Blending toolbox.  (kind of a whole host of various techniques to blend)
       
      obviously, Reaper would need to approve any of these, just thinking ahead so that my submission requests will be ready when its time.  
       
      Id love your thoughts

      Hey guys! 
      I haven't stopped moving since Reapercon. 
      This was my Paint It Pink entry, "Screening Ain't Sexy".
      Hope y'all like it. I enjoy things that are ridiculous, and applying fake eyelashes to a miniature monster paint pot fit the bill for me. :D
       
      C&C is always welcome!
