I'll definitely give it a go this year :P

Theme wise maybe something simple but open to massive interpretation. Something which could be taken in any number of different ways depending who looks at it and at what time and how drunk they are and what day it is...

Maybe something like 'Landing' because it could literally be taken any way you please while still being the obvious focus of a piece. You could take it as simply as the landing after a jump or fall, or the landing in a house (hall on the second floor) all the way to a helicopter landing etc. It could be taken through various genres like olde worlde people stepping off a ship onto the new land, soldiers rapelling down into a battleground or space people dropping in pods onto alien planets.

Maybe 'Exploration', to push people into something they haven't done before.

Having just read Philip Pullmans Grimm Tales I really like the idea of the fairytale retold theme (7 Grymn comes to mind).

The categories would all fit into a fairy tale theme as well.

Maybe something along the lines of 'whoa, I swear that wasn't here yesterday?!'
You know these situations where you realise that there's a sign hanging from a house and you could swear it wasn't there last time you passed by that building? Only with minis and a bit more interesting (e.g. pedestrian scratching it's head staring at the equine- shaped zebra crossing and some guy with a bucket full of paint walking away).

How about Betrayal.

Lots of potential there in almost any setting. Could be the wizard that summons a demon to destroy his adventuring companions - after they take him to the Orb Of Omnipotence. Could be the Supersoldier who lets the aliens into the Human base so he can finally be free from duty. It could be the Halfling that ate all the pies. The Dwarf that left his friends to pay the bill at the tavern. The Survivor who locked his friends out of the Safehouse. Or perhaps something even more abstract. It's a concept that can be interpreted and communicated in a lot of different ways.

I think it has potential. Though working it into a single miniature would require some creative thinking.

Right people... listen up!

I reckon that 2nd March will be the point at which I pool all of the suggestions and throw them out there for a poll (which will run for 2 weeks) so if you have anything that you want to be considered, get it in this thread quickly because you only have about 20 days :).

There have been some excellent suggestions so far and I have a few favourites (so I hope they get picked in the poll) but feel free to add more.

Please remember to make the suggestions generic so that every race and every genre can be twisted and tortured into fitting the theme... and feel free to push this out on your blogs and web-sites... the more the merrier :)

Remember...

2nd March for theme suggestions to finish... get on it :D

You put what in the crispy pancakes...?

Yes, it does make your bum look big.

So, you think that's impressive huh?

As happy as a happy thing on national happy day.

The face that launched a thousand ships.

Phwoar!

You're a little short to be a ...      {sculptor}

Did you spill my pint?

Show me the money.

You're not going out wearing THAT, young lady!

No, it's NOT 'a fathers for justice costume'.

Mothers pride.

Fathers love.

Lol

Don't worry dear, it's only a commercial.




That's it on suggestions for tonight...

I'd like to make a suggestion for an award category.
Funniest diorama.
Too much of our work is violent, grim or aggressive. I'd like to see whimsy and humourous rewarded

Judging by the amount of suggestions, I think the poll will need to be broken down into sections... not a problem but it will add a little time to the procedure.

Coo, some great guidance and suggestions here. The idea that this Diorama of Doom 2013 has been set up to get more community involvement got me thinking, so I'd like to suggest:

  • Beginnings
  • Rebirth
  • A new challenger

and, because it's 2013:

  • Unlucky for some...

There is still time for more suggestions... although we do have LOADS already :mrgreen:.

Once we have voted on a theme, I'll put up a vote for whether the theme should include both the diorama AND the single miniature or whether the single miniature should be 'open'... I think the theme should be for both but what do I know? The vote will tell :)

I know I have missed the March 2nd deadline.

The vote will be posted over the next couple of days :)

Right then... Thanks for all the suggestions :)

This topic is now locked and will form the subjects for a range of polls that will start very soon.
