Mini Sculpture's second annual competition starts today! There are two months - until April 30th - to crack open the putty and clay and have a bash at a wee tiny scale. The rules, prizes and discussion topic can be found here, at minisculpture.co.uk.
This year's theme is musicians. From a wargaming mini viewpoint, they're familiar in the unit commands of Warhammer and similar tabletop wargames - from Roman cornicines to American Civil War buglers, from haughty elfin trumpeters to scrofulous goatmen beating on ragged hide-drums, and well beyond. For those unswayed by the pleasures of pushing toy soldiers around, there's greater scope for character pieces, all kinds of entertainers, minstrels, heralds, band members, orchestral players, tin-whistling pixies, orcy rokkas and anything that has or could pick up an instrument. Plenty of possibilities to consider. Everyone's welcome to join in and try their hand.
The competition has ended and the finished entries are gathered in for voting. Take a look here to see the results and choose the best.
EDIT: Bit of a mess-up. I assumed that because forum software included a specific function (like, a check-box to allow guests to vote in polls), it would actually work. Apologies to everyone reading this: it seems like only registered users can vote. I hope it's been of some interest anyway, if you don't fancy signing up.

"Solo, the Last Mariachi" is definitely my top choice... if I could vote
Well this is embarassing.
Two entries slipped under my radar. I'd blame the esoteric email software I'm using with the forum, but I don't know who'd believe that. I've edited the poll, added the two missing entries, and reset the votes back to zero.
On a lighter note, I stumbled across a different check-box. Guests can now vote in the poll! (Boggles my mind why one 'let guests post' switch would work and not the other)
