World Wide Miniatures Day 2020

Recommended Posts

What:   World Wide Miniatures Day 2020 (COVID-19 Edition) -- its the 7th one can you believe it?!?!

 

When:  July 18th(ish) – I say (ish) cuz it’s flexible.  If you can’t do it this day, do the next day, or the day after or the day before or the week before.  This event is designed to be fun and inclusive to everyone as much as possible.

 

Where:  Your place.  Be safe.  Stay home.  Use discord/twitch/zoom/hangouts or whatever else you like.  Feel free to add links to your chats below if 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 this wonderful 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, teaching classes, researching, playing games with miniatures, planning miniature games, 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.  Did I say anything?

 

Cost:  Just your sanity.  You are a miniature painter -- this is probably a freebee for you.

 

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

 

But really…. WHY:  Why not?  Oh yeah if you participate I will send you a poker chip commemorating the event.  So that’s pretty cool.  All you have to do is DM me with your address so I can send you one. 

 

Special Challenges

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.

 

Community Builder Challenge:  This one is new and simple.  Do ANYTHING that benefits the miniatures community.  Paint miniatures for your gaming group, teach someone to paint, build terrain for your games table, and supporting your local game store.  Anything that helps build and support this hobby.

 

Charity Challenge:  It is back by popular demand— well it was popular with me anyway — the Charity Challenge. This one is simple.  Paint something – sell it – donate the money to charity.  I trust you – it’s the honor system.

I can probably manage this.  I can't sit for hours every day like I used to, but one afternoon should be ok.   I'll have stuff from my annual July 4th Paint Binge Challenge to finish up. :)

I'm in! I'll drop the Tiny Overlord with the grands and log in for the day! 

Maybe he'll make an appearance on something before I whisk him away. We'll see. Lol

Always game to paint with the master @maxstyles!

This is so cool  I'm glad people are interested.  Anyone have any special plans or goals in mind?  I think this year I will try to paint a miniature to represent the character in my DnD group.  Its a big group so there are 8 characters.  Whats that about 3 hours be fig?  I think I can do that....  Oh and I couldn't leave my favorite GM out in the cold so I had him pick one to paint for him.  Which brings the total to 9 so each one is just under 3 hours.  I'm hoping to have them all cleaned, prepped, and primed before the start.  Of course, I'm thinking of converting some of them but I haven't decided if that will happen before I start....

So with things starting open back up, it looks like my Starfinder game is going to start up again, this time with a new campaign.  So if I haven't painted a mini for my character yet, I will do so.  Either an uplifted bear mechanic or a magi-tech construct witchwarper.  So something fun either way.

Hey y'all,

 

Is everyone ready for WWMD this year?  I've got the miniatures for my DnD party and I am trying to decide if I want to start the mod before the day or just wait.

I've got figures ready. I might be gaming that afternoon, but if not I'm ready to paint.

I think I will try the half marathon.

 

I have a few projects that I've been working on so hopefully I can finish one or two in that time.
