Miniature Painting Contest: Morznak!

The Mini

morznak demon atrocity

Morznak, Demon of Atrocity, is a resin and metal, 54mm miniature originally sculpted by the now-defunct Enigma Miniatures.

Note: Morznak comes in four pieces so you’ll need some glue if you don’t already have some! [ We recommend the powerhouse adhesive Zap-A-Gap! ]


WARNING: Morznak is partially anatomically correct in the nether region. We will have some censored versions available for anyone who wishes!


Categories

There are multiple ways to win!

All submissions are eligible for “Crowd Favorite,” and this can be awarded to a submission that has already won one of the first two categories. Anyone who doesn’t win in any of the standard categories is eligible for the “Better To Be Lucky” category!

1  Best Overall (Two Winners)

Our judge panel will look over all of the minis and choose two submissions that they feel stand out from the pack!

Prize:

  • 1st – $40 Store credit
  • 2nd – $25 Store credit

2  Haunted Grounds (Best Basing)

Bases aren’t just a way to keep your mini upright, they’re a way to extend the creativity of your mini into the environment in which it lives! We’ve seen some impressive basing in the past and we think it’s time to reward this attention to detail!

Prize:

3  Burning Creativity (Most Creative)

Based on previous contests, we expect this to be a difficult winner to choose! This category rewards your innovation and creativity!

Prize:

  • Large Fire Elemental (RPR77082)
  • Wall of Fire (RPR77080)
  • Burning Sphere (RPR77081)
  • All three in fiery transparent orange!

4  Devil’s Favorite Demon (Crowd Favorite)

Our judges get out of the way and let the masses choose their favorite! Everyone who visits our brick-and-mortar store during the voting period can look at the display full of submissions and vote for the one that they like the most! Whichever mini receives the most votes is the winner!

Prize:

5  Luck of the Devil (Better To Be Lucky…)

This is a winner chosen at random from all submissions who haven’t won in any other categories! Lucky, eh?

Prize:

  • 5 Reaper paints: Black, white, and a trio of Caucasian skin tones
