The competition falls into two main categories. You may paint your way to the prize or craft it. The choice is yours! Remember though – there’s a theme your work must relate to. In reference to dark times we live in, we decided the most appropriate will be: THERE IS ALWAYS LIGHT IN SHADOWS. To take a chance you need to be our Patreon and use models from any of our Patreon’s Chapters in your work. You may print your 3d minis or buy them from one of our licensed merchants. At this link, you may sink into the detailed rules of the competition (which’s highly recommended if you’re about to join!).

Printable STL models you can use in the contest. Wight, warrior, riders, buildings.


A painter’s quest is to paint one 3d miniature and put it into the theme’s context playing with details, colors, lights, or base. Experiment with your vision and reveal the light!

A craftsman’s task is to create a whole scene around the theme using the items you see fit with at least three of our Patreons’ miniatures included.

If you prefer the Art of Word – we’ve also prepared something for you! The contest for best written and creative comment is held on our Fanpage as well, so prepare your quill… Or keyboard, of course, and click HERE to create one! As a prize, you’ll get a custom miniature (pre-supported STL or 3d print)!


In the beginning, we’ve planned only one printer in the contest prize pool. However, grateful for our Patrons’ commitment and support of our project, we’ve decided to add another one.
