Iron Builder's MIXELS D&D Contest

All great contests have two things in common. A set of rules and goblins. Just look at the Miss America Pageant! Your new job is to provide the cuddly widdle creatures and try to outwit the other adventurers trying to steal all the treasure out from under your bricks!

RULE ONE - Judging

Entries will be judged on 3 categories. Building Skill, D&D-ness and MIXEL-icious-osity.
So.. make sure it looks like a MIXEL! We should all readily be able to tell that your entry would be comfortable in both the D&D and MIXEL universes. Humor and cleverness are always encouraged

RULE TWO - Scale
We are looking for a SINGLE creature per entry. A very small vignette or tiny bit of detail scenery is ok, but NOT required. DON'T make a giant dungeon cavern out of 1,000s of bricks and plop a MIXEL Gelatinous Cube in as an afterthought. This contest is all about the monsters not the architecture they live in! If desired, you may Photoshop a non-LEGO background into you entry to provide additional dungeon-flavor. Again, make sure the emphasis is on your MIXEL-Monster.

If you would like to include a minfigure or two as part of your entry ( MAXIMUM of THREE ) you may do so.

RULE THREE - Presentation
You may submit up THREE entries to the contest. All of them have an equal chance of winning the glorious prizes! To submit, post the SINGLE best picture ( that means only one... ) of your entry to the Iron Builder MIXELS CONTEST group on flickr. Make sure to include "MIXELS D&D Contest" as part of your entry's name.

Also, please share a link to the contest under you photos as well.

RULE FIVE - Due Date and Prizes

One of these Magical Medallions could be yours!

There will be a FIRST, 2nd and 3rd place winner.
All winners will win a magic amulet! (claims as to the Magic Missile and Invisibility powers of the prized amulets have yet to be verified )

In addition, the 1st place winner will get about a DOZEN 1st EDITION MIXELs sets (thank you LEGO Group!), and ALL WINNERS will get a Munchkin Bricks Bookmark of Better Monster Building, a Munchkin Bricks MUNCHKIN 'Brick-Built' game card, a Unique colored Munchkin Bricks Crate of Hoarding prototype ( never available to the public ) and a FULL SET of MUNCHKIN Bricks (thank you CrazyBricks!) for their Dungeon adventuring!

The last date for entry submissions will be December 30th, 2014 at 10PM Pacific Time.

Whoo Hoo! I can hear the BugBears and Kobolds cheering now!

- What's the due date?!
- For a swarming type monster, is it ok to include multiples in the image?
- Is a non-LEGO photoshopped dungeon background ok (for ambience)?
- What judging bribery levels do you offer?

V&A Steamworks - Guy HImber: Awesome. Feel free to delete my blathering once you're done.
For the sake of purity, let's keep it to ONE monster per entry - no Photoshop 'SWARMING' allowed,

I already know who one of my monsters is going to be. I think the hard part for me will be making him look enough like a Mixel...

Ok fine, I'll ask since no one else has... Where did Rule 4 go?

Are we limited to only mixels parts or can we use whatever pieces we want to build with?

Ahah! Somebody is paying attention!

1 down, 2 half done already. I can not stop giggling how cute Mixelized D&D monsters are. Hopefully the light will be good this weekend to Photograph them

V&A Steamworks - Guy HImber:Would this mean 3rd party parts (cough* crazy bricks *cough) are allowed?

3rd party are welcome ( especially ...ahem... CrazyBricks... ) as long as they don't interfere with the MIXELs flavor

Since I have never played the game, is there a way I can enter?
W. Navarre:

ANYONE can enter! For inspiration take a Google or two and you will find TONS of D&D monsters to inspire you.
Last day to enter is tomorrow! Entries must be in by Midnight, December 31st to be considered for judging and prizes!

Good LUCK!
