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; but that and other matters (including juicy prizes) are dealt with in the rules and conditions topic: http://minisculpture.co.uk/index.php?topic=922.0  Here I'm going to expand on the theme a little - 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.  The only limit is your own imagination.

Also, use the Discussion thread to ask questions, request clarifications, point out stuff I should've included, etc.

Start your sculpting, and good luck!

Warren.

I know exactly what I'm going to make for this.
"How did you know you weren't really going crazy?"
"The voices in my head kept calling me Bruce."
"Yeah, and?"
"In my head, that's not what I call myself."

Well, I this was brought to my attention thanks to a friendly advertisement over at Warseer...  I have ideas and hopefully life will allow me to follow through with it. The future is in the hands of SCIENCE... MAD science! Bwahahahaaaa!

(edit, add picture)



I am torn between it being piloted/played by a mad scientist or by a truly hell fire and brimstone preacher...

Would a modern songstress be out of theme?

Just one rules clarification, does the piece need to be painted or simply primed to specifically show the sculpting itself?
