Subject Matter: Musician!
For this contest we want you to enter with anything involving musicians, be they Chaos Dwarf, Centaur, Hobgoblin or other slave sorts!
The theme is wide. If you want to build a whole diorama involving an orchestra with audience, then go for it! If you want to enter multiple musicians from different units, then by all means do so. If you want to enter command groups, rank and file miniatures and characters as hangers-on to your bard, then do so. If you want to model Hobgoblins torturing prisoners for musical screams of agony, then the way is open. If you want to build a giant steam-powered Daemonforged locomotive pipe organ shooting flame at the enemy, then no problem. The sky is the limit.
Keep it as simple or as complicated as you like. Let your imagination run wild!
If you are unsure if your entry will fit the subject matter, please contact @Admiral and he’ll sort it out with the rest of the Staff.
Basing is unrestricted and up to your discretion. You may include plinths and display bases if you want. You may include fancy backgrounds. We want to encourage the creation of beautiful models and modelling scenes, not hamper it.
Bases: Up to your discretion.
The Due Date: 11:59 PM January the 5th 2023 EST (Eastern Time Zone)
