    I don't know if I could participate since I'm doing lot's of things right now and it really confuses me. But if the timing's right then I may participate as a contestant or judge. Well, good luck to those who'll join.

    Alright alright, calm your hype down if possible : )

    Will start this off tomorrow morning since at the moment I've just started shaping up the presentation fonts and stuff needed for it.

    Yeah -Grendel, you heard me well!

    Warhammer theme will be taken into account for another time. No worries.

    'hope that this will shower your expectations greatly.

    Edit: This thread might be de-sticky'ed each time a mini-contest starts and sticky'ed when themes are suggested for the next one(if that happens).

    Check it out!

    Now this stirred my interest? Perhaps we could divide this theme into something like this:

    • Ogre boss
    • Maffia Ogre
    • Gorrian Empire
    • Second War Era
    • Old Draenor Clan
    • Demonic Ogre
    • Mutated Ogre
    • Space Ogre

    It could be about new kinds of ogres. Mutated ones, space ogres, whathaveyou
    Come up with a new type of ogre. Just do some freestyle on the ol' ogre model.

    'Indeed-ish'. Reason being that having polls and all that waiting time takes away from the idea of mini in the first place. It's a mini-contest and it must stay as tight as possible even if fewer than three people submit their entries.

    Having polls besides judging does make it tedious and a bit unneeded. I prefer to keep it simple and clean without all the technicality of a full blown contest from the Arena.
    Questions?
