Wamped II


  • Wamped II

    Wamped! has returned for its second year and it's hard makeover. Gone are the manufacturer categories and entries will now be split into genre specific categories giving even more range for you to bag some prizes!

    The closing date for entries is: 6pm Wednesday 4th January 2012
    (Supporter deadline will be 5 days later @ 6pm Monday 9th January 2012)
    Times quoted are GMT

    What can I enter?
    Anything! It can be any scale, genre, manufacturer. It can be terrain, duel, diorama,a full blown army even. BUT! Take note it must be new work. That means it must not have been shown completed anywhere. If you have shown WIP elsewhere that's fine but not completed photos!

    Prizes will be announced next month! (but theres some nice stuff!)


    Everything Else

    There will also be a Best In Show winner.

    In addition this year will see the introduction of a brand new concept to Wamped! It's one we have used in our oldest contest the Wamp Monthly and it always brings up some fun entries:

    The Themed Category!

    The Themed Category add a theme element to entries and is a prize awarded in addition to the others. The theme for this year is..........


    what you do with that theme is entirely up to you but we will be looking for originality and clever use of theme as well as the technical skill of the entry

    • You must be a Wamp Member to participate. (registration is free). you can register here.
    • You may enter as many times as you like but each entry may only submit one photograph so if you need more angles it MUST be a montage any additional photographs of that entry will be removed
    • All entries must be new work (new work is defined as a piece not shown in a finished state in public before. It is fine to enter a piece that has been displayed in a Work In Progress state (if your unsure ask!))
    • You give Wamp and Portal Magazine permission to use your pictures for publicity (but you do retain ownership)
    • You may post pictures of WIP both here and elsewhere in public. Completed work may be displayed elsewhere AFTER it has been entered into the contest gallery here
    • Judging will be decided by Public Poll
    • You may enter as many times as you like in each category.
    • You are only eligible to win 1 prize per category with the exception of Best in Show or Theme prizes as these can be awarded in addition to other prizes.
    • Submissions must be posted to the contest gallery.
    • Photographs must be no larger than 800w x 3100w pixels. If they are the software will automatically reduce your image size and make it pretty small. It is your responsibility to check this
    • You may enter a single miniature,diorama full 300 piece battle scene - whatever you like as long as its within the correct category rules.
    • Any entries found to be breaking the rules will be disqualified

    Entries must be placed in the appropriate category here: Wamped II Gallery

    So there you go folks - In short create anything you want, any mini from any manufacturer, an army even terrain, buildings and scenery!!

    In this Hotseat we sit down and chat with thee guys from Demented Games, the Australian company behind the wonderful Twisted game.

    Seb, Its almost 11 years to the day we sat you down in the hotseat. Back then there was no Guild of Harmony or Twisted. So how did things pan out in that time to bring you to where you are now? (Read Sebs original interview here: Seb Archer )

  • Warploque Miniatures – A comparison between cast and printed miniatures.
    by Brambleten
    Anyone that has received a resin miniature from Warploque Miniatures will know, from the title, that this is a very unfair comparison to put together. There are two casters that I would recommend above all others in the UK – BrokenToad, and Rob Huntley of Warploque Miniatures - I've never had a bad or mediocre cast from either. Nevertheless, I got my hands on my first 3D printed miniatures recently and as they’re from Warploque via their Digital Workshop, it’s a comparison I’m going to make....

  • Review: She-Hulk for Marvel: Crisis Protocol from Atomic Mass Games
    by Brambleten
    Welcome to this review of She-Hulk from Atomic Mass Games! It is my first review for a while (or at least my first review longer than an Instagram snippet) so I'm a little rusty and may well get carried away and ramble in places – apologies in advance.


    At the time of writing, She-Hulk is the latest release from Atomic Mass Games for their Marvel: Crisis Protocol tabletop skirmish game. The great thing about The Crisis Protocol kits is that they’re all uniformly...

  • Review: Solomon Kane
    by Darklord
    Introduction FeR miniatures is becoming one of the go-to sites for larger scale miniatures in recent times, developing a reputation for producing stunning busts and figures, and collaborating with sculptors such as Raffaele Picca and David Zabrocki. It is run by the equally talented painter Fernando Ruiz, who in fact painted the box art for the kit we're looking at here. Chances are that if you've seen a historical figure/bust on Facebook or Putty & Paint over the last 12 months, it's from this ...

    Dark Art Studios turns 12 at the end of the year we manage to catch a few words with Byron about the new Vengeance Miniatures range and the new Table Top game from Dark Art Ė Arena of Doom.

    Hey Byron, please tell us about Vengeance Miniatures?

    The new miniature range is 35mm heroic scale and will be made using traditional techniques out of an alloy metal which is our own formula.

    How did the name come about? Vengeance Miniatures ...

  • Coming Clean: Colours of Battle Paints
    by Cregan Tur
    Sometimes reviews are just hard to write. Often itís because what youíre reviewing is hard to define within the scope youíre used to working in; itís something new, a deviation. But what could be more straight forward than reviewing paints? Iíve done it before, after all. So why was a review so difficult to write? Part of the reason is that, as far as my research has shown, these paints are manufactured by the same company that makes Privateer Pressí P3 line of paints. Theyíre even in the same...
