You ever wanted to try your hand at sculpting your own miniature, but never had the motivation? Well, why not give it a go and enter this year’s Frothers Sculpting Competition?
This year the Frothers have set the challenge of sculpting up the inhabitants of the Froth Eisley Starport.
“The theme is the denizens of the starport. This Starport could be a low tech place based on a jungle or desert planet. An industrial complex: either clean and shiny, or greasy and dirty. It could be floating station in the sea, sky or space. Wherever you imagine it to be, its Froth Eisley: A hive of froth and villainy.
So as not to limit the sculptor’s creativity, we won’t set any specific categories in advance, which would be nearly impossible, but will look at the entries we get and see which categories – if any – emerge from the submissions. You can enter as many different figures as you want.
For example, they could be human, alien, robot or equipment (within reason, we don’t want a 28mm scale battleship – we would have problems casting it even in resin) They could even be the lower life form vermin inhabiting the station. Just remember if you want to win it will probably need to show more originality and skill than a Starport bubblegum vending machine.” – Frothers
The sculpts will be judged by a panel comprising of Rick Priestley (Warlord Games), Kev White (Hasslefree Miniatures), Simon Bradley (Stone Cold Lead), and Bill Proebstel.
The winners will have their models professionally produced and sold in the webstore, as well as receiving a number of copies for themselves.
Whether or not you win, I think this is the perfect opportunity for wannabe sculptors to give it a go. The closing date for submissions is 1st July 2014, so you better get sculpting.
If you fancy giving this a shot, send your submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Be sure to show us all the cool designs that you come up with too!
