Diy Teddy Troops Design Contest :3 Sep. 20th, 2008 @ 05:19 PM Reply

This contest is similar to last years 2007 NG DIY Munny Competition.

The concept is simple. You buy (or are given, see details below) a 3.5" DIY Teddy Troops figurine. They run about 7 dollars, so they are quite affordable and worth it.

Once you have your blank figurine, you can do whatever you want to it. Paint it with paint, markers, blood(not recommended), whatever you want.

Once you've finished, you carefully package it up and you send it over. (Send me a PM i'll hook you up with mailing details). When the project has concluded I'll rack up all the little figurines and they will make a trip to the NG office, where like last year, the top entries would get some sort of cool priz0rz.

So you have two options:

1 - Buy your own Sorry they are currently out of stock. I bought em all, I called them up and they should be back in stock soon. You can find some on e-bay also. Like here

2- You can 'win' one of the 15 NG-sponsored Teddy Troops. To win these you have to go through the extra step of proposing a design and submitting it to this thread here. Once your design is selected, I'll get your mailing info and you'll recieve a blank Teddy Trooper to put your design on. You will then need to mail it back. You can use the image below to work your design.

3- Once the contest is over, those who bought their own Teddy Troops can have theirs mailed back if they'd like or they can live in the office like many of the WZL's do today. Those who got the NG-sponsored figurines will have to stay behind. Unless you strongly express that you want it back.

========================================
======================

There is no set deadline yet. We'll see how the contest goes.

For this years contest, it will be all paint. You wont be able to add anything substantial to the figurine. Last year, some figurines became WAY too scultural. This isnt about sculpting skills, its about your handiwork on the figurine not on clay.

You can add a prop here and there but nothing major that changes the original shape of the figurine.

Whatever means of painting you choose is up to you. Most people painted in acrylic some in markers, some in Warhammer paints. Browse through the WZL thread from last year for tips.
what ever form you choose, it has to be permanent.

Have fun! Heres some examples of Teddy Troops painted by major artists in the toy design scene

If I wasn't so bad at painting, I would probably do the Soldier from TF2. HintHint.

But yeah I love looking at the finished products of these. :) And Reading Mindchamber's thoughts about them.

Yeah I may take that hint, I'm trying to think of something creative and original but it's hard.

I need to give this a try!

I think, like someone hinted earlier, I'll do something from TF. I love the art style in that game and the Pyro kinda fits the shape...

So we post our finished ones here?

Here is a rough make up of my idea, of course it would be much better if I could do it by hand, I have a hard time trying to draw with the mouse. Well The red is all blood, I was thinking of having NG like on the helmet like blood splatter some blood around his mouth area and on his uniform. It's like my idea of the ng themed bear tankman but instead of guns he uses his teeth and claws, hence the blood. Idk, if you think it's promising let me know. If not liked, oh well. I tried. Keep in mind this is very rough and I promise my final product would be 10x better than this.

Doesnt have to be NG related and you can buy one from me if you want. It'll be 7 bucks + shipping. so probably like 10.

Just a quick idea, I rather like Rorschach. Obviously it would look slightly different on the teddy's face.

(I'd find some way to perfectly copy one half of the face to the other on the doll with ink.)
