Welcome to the Golden Toadstool V3.1!!! A special thanks to Terry Adams for all his hard work, and Tony Erdelji for his continued help with the archives! Now we also add Chern Ann from CoolMiniorNot to the list of thanks as he has graciously allowed us to make a Fungal Forum for discussion of the contest! Mostly however, thanks to everyone who has entered, voted, and commented thus allowing this fun contest to go on for over 4 years now and become a coveted award to win! The Contest: This is purely a fun and educational contest. More than anything, the ultimate reward is simply bragging rights. This is a wide open contest, meant to showcase the best new work from any manufacturer, and any genre. There are always a ton of great, high quality entries, but I fully encourage painters of all skill levels to enter. The competition is meant […]
My first I-Kore minature 🙂 This miniature represents the first round of a contest on The Miniature Page. The general idea is as follows: We started with around 80 contestants, and we all posted our finest work. After I believe 4 rounds of elimination voting, the final 10 (11 actually due to a tie) begin The Last Painter Standing Contest. What this involves, is we all paint up the same miniature and do a write-up about it as well. After a month and all the entries ar ein (or you are eliminated), a vote is held, and one painter is eliminated for round two and so on, until there is but one painter left! What follows is my first write up as it appears on The Miniature Page. To begin with, I would like to extend a big THANK YOU to Bill and the crew at I-Kore for putting this on! It is both […]
Hand painted in a bronze and patina finish by the sculptor, C.J. Cummings Bronzed Artist’s Proof “A monster of vaguely anthropoid outline… with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feeler… a scaly, rubbery-looking body… long, narrow wings behind… somewhat bloated corpulence… squatted evilly on a rectangular block or pedestal covered in undecipherable characters… tips of the wings touched the back edge of the block… long, curved claws of the doubled-up, crouching hind legs gripped the front edge… huge forepaws which clasped the croucher’s elevated knees… abnormally lifelike… subtly fearful…” H.P. Lovecraft In the beginning. The sculpture before finishing. Sculpted completely out of Super Sculpey. The base has inlaid glyphs of ill portent. The dialect is Cthonian, taken from various resources around the web. The pronunciation of the glyphs is: “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn” The base when deciphered says: “In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” […]
Morkoth Vipertongue, from Reaper’s Dark Heaven line. Went with some deep red armor, though the pics aren’t brilliant. Done again with the NMM (non-metallic metal style), he is bristling with weapons of various sorts 🙂 I also rendered a strange black freehand pattern on the rear of his tabard as well as his wrist guard.
