  • Wyrd Miniatures 2013

    Logo+Wyrd+Kickstarter.large.jpg


    Time to get retro and hark back to the heady days of 2008.
    To set the mood lets relive the monster hit of the year:



    Now we are all sitting here reminiscing over the good old days, lets also remember back to another major event of 2008. Wamp held its first ever sponsored contest. It was an event that would rewrite the history of miniature painting (well a little!) and help set Wamp on a path to world domination. That first contest was with a small but well loved company called Wyrd Miniatures and after a 4 year hiatus they are back on Wamp!!

    Yes you heard right, lets get Wyrd!! In those four years Wamp has grown but so has Wyrd, a small game called Malifaux came into being and Wyrd has a new army of admirers the world over. This should be a great contest.

    Apart from awesome minis and great gaming Wyrd do something else brilliantly and thats contest. They will be supplying us with a whole host of limted edition goodies and even some items never available to buy!!

    Prizes:
    These will be announced shortly but they are special!!

    There will be prizes for the top 5 places.

    Deadline:
    24th march 2013 4pm(British Time)

    (supporters deadline will be 31st march 2013 4pm (British Time)

    Ah jea! That first Wyrd contest was how I stumbled onto WAMP. I ended up calling WAMP home after the release of Malifaux and the forum on Wyrd got hella cray-cray with all the newfound fans.

    Looking forward to this contest for sure. Glad to see WAMP and WYRD back together!!!

                Very cool. I bought my first Malifaux figure over the holidays and he's already sitting primed on my work area. I'll make sure I get some paint on him once I finish all my projects for Wamped! III.

                Plus seeing all of the other entries might help me figure out which Wyrd mini I want to add to my collection next. Oh, and I'll share this with my painting group and see if I can get a few of them to join in!

                  that would be awesome!
                  I've already put the announcement on Wyrd and on my clubs forum...
                  expect an onslaught of Cro painters (don't confuse us with Pro painters, though..)

                    Take care

                      @DL: just to keep any confusion from cropping up in the future, can you add a rule specifying Wyrd miniatures must be used? (perhaps 'predominately' if other figures would be allowed in a dio)?
                      "what color did you use, red with a black wash?"
