Last year we worked with College Humor on the production of their “Dimension 20” series for Dropout TV.
Here is the synopsis of Dimension 20 from IMDB “Welcome to the land of dragons, wizards – and guidance counselors? Game Master Brennan Lee Mulligan presents CollegeHumor’s very first RPG with an ’80s twist.”
We provided them with many building kits, some the built straight of the box, others were modified by their model and prop guys. We also supplied them with several modified kits and many custom pieces as well.
We worked closely with Rick Perry, the Production Designer and we got them what they needed in the time frame they needed it, often shipping custom parts the same day they were ordered.
Having been a full time commercial model maker my whole life and working with the entertainment industry from time to time, I went into this understanding that when a production calls to say they need something, they need it yesterday. I’m really happy that we were able to accommodate them every time.
The photos we are sharing are from the show and behind the scenes. Most shots include a GCmini kit, a modified kit, or some custom made bits we did just for the show.

First prize is for the best overall photo. This one is for the photography geeks out there. I’ll be looking at things like composition, lighting, focus, DoF, subject, scene, and just generally the entire package.
Second prize is for best model. Perhaps you are great at painting and finishing models but you do not have a $2000 DSLR camera with a $1700 lens and tons of lights and reflectors … maybe you shoot with your camera phone. That’s what this prize is for. I’m looking for a great model, even if the photo is not pro quality.
Third prize (3 to be awarded) is for those of you that think maybe your photography or building/finishing skills are not up to par yet but you are working on them. These prizes will be awarded to three people based on a totally random selection process. Three winners will be selected from all of the entries at random. This is to encourage everyone to participate. You may not be a professional model maker or a great photographer… but I still want to see what you are doing with the products that I produce.
First $50 in store credit
Second $30 in store credit
Third $15 in store credit (three 3rd prizes will be awarded)

Submit your photos via email to email@example.com with the subject line: Photo Contest
To help me keep photo organized, please name files with your name. For example, samsmith1.JPG , samsmith2.JPG, etc
If you submit more than one photo please put them in a ZIP file and name that file using your name, for example; samsmith.ZIP
By submitting a photo or photos to this contest, you agree to allow Allen Rockwell and GameCraft Miniatures to use the photo(s) on any social media, websites, online store, print advertising or any other promotional media.
Photos can be of individual GameCraft Miniatures models, groups of models, game play, etc. Photos can certainly include miniatures from other companies but GameCraft products should be featured in the photo and/or be the main focus of the scene.
The decision of the judge (me) is final. Miniature painting and photography are both art forms and are very subjective. I will pick the photos that appeal to me. You may or may not agree with my choices.
