just one point i wanted to ask was 'will it have to be a stock mini, or can we bash or sculpt parts'
the main worry i have is that the quickdraw is out of stock in both major game distributors so i cannot buy one in the local store. and don't think i will do an order with IWM for just one mini. so i will probably end up using a plastic one, but would like to rebuild it, or even scratch build some parts to make the detailing on the mini clearer.
just my two cents before the rules are laid down. and of course what ever the rules will be is fine, will follow them, and thank you for running this, as competitions are the only way i get to finish minis these days!

There will be a painting contest. I have been very busy with the RW and my health. So, look for the rules after the weekend(the wife will want the Xmas tree up).

It is an archive piece, actually.

I am placing an order though next week. If someone needs one, I could certainly add it to the order. And we could split the spin-up cost.

The only issue would be, it typically takes about 3 weeks to get an order. And then a few days to get from me to you. Would thecircus be willing to set a deadline that would permit this?

I'll place the order. When it comes in, you pay me the list price, but a percentage of the spin-up cost (depending on how many order), and $2.50 for me to ship in a padded envelope (to the US, of course)

If there's anything you want me to order for you from IWM, we can do that too, though shipping would go up, of course.
