No flash, the white is a bit bolder/brighter becuase of some minor image mods, something like contrast enchancment or color equalizing to take out the yellowish background of the artificial lighting. After that the picture pops a bit more.

Actually while first prize is cool, if i just make the top three i'll be happy.

After the deadline on the 14th, the top three entries are flown out to the 30th Aniversry Star Wars Celebration in Ca in May. Where they set up the entries for the viewing/voting of the people attending the SW convention.
The person who wins that gets one every SW mini produced by WotC in 2007.

while these look nice i think, i have no idea what anyone else has entered. Mine could be total poo next to some one elses stuff.

Sith Temple Assault
Dimensions 44x30
Era: Old Republic

Also another set up inspired or almost imagined as coming from a video game level or RPG session. This one is an in action scene, as the Heroes and a band of other Jedi companions have first cut their way into a Sith temple, and then have been battling there way through the amassed forces to confront the final bosses at the end of the session/level.
The group first enters by cutting a hole through the outer wall, and while a few Jedi stay to fend off the Sith Troopers and Assault Droids, more move on and engage in a fierce battle. Sith wielding the Dark side fight with the Jedi knights in the Sith training hall. The battle is so intense that it swept into the dormitory of the Sith Trainees. In the back of the Training Hall, another hole was cut through the wall to allow the troopers to press forward.
The Heroes have pressed onward, however to allow them to make it in several other Knights have stayed behind to deal with Sith who attempted to stop the Heroes, and their Assault Droids.
The Heroes have reached the final chamber, an immense focusing Chamber of the Temple, Here the Sith Lords reside, basking in the power. The Heroes must first make it through final guards, these are Massassi Warriors, and Sith who are the Apprentices of some of the Sith Lords.

Some of the close-ups of the rooms show a command room, an area where the Dark Siders practice Alchemy to mutate creatures, a room where Lightsaber construction is done, and a storage room. The door between the command center and the Storage room leads to the main barracks of troopers (off camera), and there is a power supply grid, where the Assault Droids rest and power up in this area.

Many of the Sith and some of the Jedi are Customs from Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures.

Terrain Elements are Dwarven Forge, Grendel/Scotia, Grendel/Mega Minis, Griffon Studios, JR Miniatures, Ainsty/Old Crow Models, Antenociti Workshop, Hirst Arts and Homemade and customized items.

WOW!

So I guess the new stuff made it in time?

Those are some great shots. Nothing like a huge, sprawling setup with DoE and SF elements mixed together. And I love the stuff from Tony you've got in there -- the Unhallowed intellect devourer in the vat is just priceless.

Really great, epic stuff. Seriously, I haven't seen the other entries so I don't want to get your hopes up prematurely, but seriously -- HOW CAN YOU NOT WIN THIS THING?!?

If you don't, I think we should all pool our resources and send you to Celebration IV anyway, man. These are some damn impressive setups!

Great posts Gs, my favorite is the Wookie with a light saber, and the "Human Executioner" with a light saber. Were those custom mods? These pics really made my day. Thanx.

Dungeoneer, Yup those are customs. A large number of the Sith are Customs, and some of the Jedi are as well. I started doing some of the Customs of WizKids minis for my SW d20 RPG which was set in this time period to get some other/named/boss characters for the PC's to fight instead of constantly fighting the Maraduers etc. Cause well Wizkids minis sucked at the time (hard plastic, prone to breaking instead of bending and you could get dirt cheap "rookiees"), but since this is a WotC contest i didn't put any of those in (though there is 1 WK in there...0
When L and i did a trade recently he sent in a very nice Sith Acolyte and Weeque custom and it got me thinking. One of the PC's from that RPG had made a custom for his character but the arm kept falling off. So going back to my Action figure customzing days, and looking over the Reaper page i decided to finally customize many of the D&D minis i had set aside for customizing into Sith or Jedi, and i applyed the ideas from before (which was pining in Action figures most have a "pin" for the leg or arm already), and it worked well. So in the time i was waiting for the new DF sets to show up i set about customizing 14 minis (one isn't in this set it's still a work in progress, need to paint it!!!). So there would be some variety in the figures.

whitewind if i am choosen for 1,2,3 it all depends on which set up they choose. i could be quit screwed... The minis are actually not doubled, every time i finish a set up the minis are baged and placed away. the Terrain is what will hurt me, same grass board, etc. Much of it is reused, the Sci-Fi is used a lot in many, and there isn't much i didn't use. I may have to scramble to get more copies of some stuff ;).


I was rereading the rules, and :( we may never see the other entries, I had a brain burp when i first read it, and thought all of the entries were going to be judged by the public but only the three at Celebration will be judged by the General public. WotC is makign the selection of the 3 to go. I hope they will post all of the pictures on the web page but not sure. I'd think about a writing campaign if they don't at some point to request a look see. I'm curious to see what others send

Great work. I'm really digging the grass, how did you manage to make it have the grid layout. I see you started with a foam board base and you seem to use static grass for it, just can't figure out how you did the grid lines. Would like to make something like that for my D&D and SWM games.

Tatooine Station Raid
Dimensions 40x30 inches
Era: Rebellion
A could have happened off camera moment in Star Wars. An already tense situation, a group of Sand People arriving at an out of the way traders post is made worse by the arrival of Imperial troops. The small trade outpost, possibly similar to Tosche Station, is where a group of humans, aliens and Jawas meet regularly to trade, barter and buy and sell goods. Occasional Tuskens come as well to get weapons and other items.
At one such trade meet, Imperial troops checking and tracking various sand crawlers looking for Droids come upon such a meeting, their Captain sees an excellent opportunity to not only interrogate some locals but also get the chance to actually increase the Imperial presence on the planet. If they capture some Banthas and Tusken weapons then they can make there other raids and assaults look like it was the work of the natives, making it look like the hands of the Imperial Army are clean, and hopefully causing the locals to ask for the help in protection from the Sand People. So they attack the Trade Station and hope to take prisoners of the Jawas to find the location of other crawlers, and gain the means to make raids look like it was the work of the sand people. This is an in battle shot of the Imperials attacking the station, a young Krayt dragon looks on drawn by the scent of blood, hoping to scavenge after the battle, the Imperials leave it be hoping it will dispose of bodies…

Terrain is from the following sources, homemade, Mirco Machines Action Packs, World Works Games, Hasbro Action Figure Vehicle collection Sandcrawler, buildings made from the Desert Village set by Paper Models
