World Wide Miniatures Day 2021 VIII

World Wide Miniatures Day

July 10ish 2021

You know you want o…
You know you have to

 

What:   World Wide Miniatures Day 2021 VIII

 

When:  July 10th(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.

 

Local Game Store Challenge:  I added this one this year specifically because of COVID and the economic hit our local hobby stores have taken. This is a win win for everyone — we get to help out the local hobby stores who will help support the hobby and make it grow for all of us. I think this one is super important.

 

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 do something on that day, at least slap some form of paint around that day. Count me in.

 

Can we possibly look forward to a digital 2021 badge like last year? (like the one in my header in my forum profile) No worries if not.
