Mini Sculpture's second annual competition starts today! You've all got two months to crack open the putty and clay and have a bash at it. The rules, prizes and discussion topic can be found here.
This year's theme is musicians. They're not unfamiliar to us wargamers, particularly in the unit command groups of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and similar games. That already gives a lot of scope in terms of time, nationalities and races. From Roman cornicines to American Civil War buglers, from haughty elfin trumpeters to scrofulous goatmen beating on ragged hide-drums, and well beyond. There's also plenty of room for behind-the-lines character pieces, all kinds of entertainers, minstrels, heralds, regimental band members, tin-whistling pixies, orcy rokkas and so on. Loads of possibilities - have a go!
