Another Day; Two ways to Win a Free Miniature

This is an announcement that I have been waiting to make for several months now but I had to wait until everything was finished and launched.  My business has "officially" gone live today.  Check out my new website at

I am so excited to get started on some really great things and while I will still be a full time sculptor for many of your favorite companies, I get to do something with my evenings that I have done on a smaller scale for the last 7 years...and that is teach others how to sculpt.

The website has lots of information on what I will be teaching but for right now, I am simply celebrating the launch of the website itself, which has been a long time in the making.  And that brings us to the two contests.  Which I will go over the rules shortly.  Both contests will allow 5 people the chance to win a free miniature, which is pictured below so more than one person will be able to win this bad boy.

All you need to do is check out the website at and let me know what you think. If you find an error that we have missed with our fine-toothed comb, post it so I can get it fixed.  I may be giving out random miniatures to a few lucky spotters.  I am sure we missed a few mistakes but we have been looking at this site for several months and have stopped noticing some of the finer details.

Next, choose one of two contests to enter (or enter them both if you would like):

The Facebook Contest:

This contest is simple and all you have to do is follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Fire For Effect Studios Facebook Page and like the page.
  2. Like and Share the Post:  I want to win a free MINIATURE!  Please make the share public.  If it is a private setting, I won't be able to see the share and you will be missed during the draw.
  3. Comment in the post thread on facebook to let me know you liked and shared.  Make sure it is in the original Fire For Effect Studios post.

And then sit back and wait for your chance to win 1 of 5 Free Miniatures!

The Forum Contest:

With my website, I have also launched a forum for the courses that I will be running and for a general sculpting community.  This will also be a general forum for miniature hobbyists and I invite people to join the forum and share their miniatures.  The rules for the forum contest are simple as well.

  1. Go to the Fire For Effect Studios Forum Page and register on the forum. 
  2. Introduce yourself on the forum with a post either in the introductions or general forums.
  3. Look around at the various subforums.  Right now the campus is open so you can see what I will be doing.

And that's it.  I will draw names from the registered members on the forum. All you have to do is wait for the draw and your chance to win 1 of 5 Free Miniatures.

The contests will run from now until November 18th at 12am PST.

So the total number of draws is 10 Miniatures, 5 for each contest.  You can enter into one or the other or both if you would like and I hope you can give me some feedback on the direction I am going with my website, forum and courses.

Lastly I would like to thank my friends and family for all their support and help in launching this new venture. In particular my wife for all her support and hard work and believing in me. Without her, none of this would be possible.
