Unofficial Diorama of Doom... Role call.
« on: September 11, 2012, 06:52:33 PM »
I haven't worked out any dates, I haven't worked out any set base sizes, I haven't worked out a theme but there will be the usual categories:

Miniatures from:

1 FoD company
More than 1 FoD company
All the FoD companies

The theme will not be genre specific, it will be a single word.

The base will be a standard CD but there hasn't been a discussion about overhangs yet.

There will be no prizes apart from bragging rights.

So... please put your name down in this thread if you would be interested in an Unofficial DoD taking into account the information here and the fact that things still need to be sorted out. 

There isn't a start time yet but the finish will be 16:00hrs(GMT) 24 Dec 2012.

There's the starter for ten. The sooner I know if there is interest, the sooner we can sort the terms and get the thing started. The voting will be an on-line vote for Joe, just like last time.

Sign up below or be square :D

I'm not sure whether it would be fair... I would know the theme in advance etc.

It's all for fun anyway, speaking for myself I wouldn't mind. As you said the theme will be rather broad if you want to make it random for yourself as well then just open a dictionary to a random page and look for the first word that could possibly involve a diorama theme.

I won't take part, so if you all can trust me (:twisted:) I volounteer to select the theme and post it on the first day of the competition. That way Inso can take part without any advantage.

Looks like I'll have to craft some virtual awards for people to add to their forum signatures...

This weekend I will sort out the rules and think about getting this thing going.

The start date will be 24th September which will give everyone 3 months to put something together.

Aj, what a great idea! What better to go with bragging rights than a sign to tell everyone?! :D
