The Misfit Contest: April 3 - May 3
Join to comment
 Group admin 
The newest ABS Forever contest has been unveiled! From now until May 3rd, you will be able to build and post for a chance to win this competition. Build a MOC depicting a misfit or misunderstood being, on a 20 x 20 stud base or smaller. Perhaps it's a zombie who doesn't like brains, a dwarf who's scared of tunnels, a doctor who dislikes people, or whatever else you can think of. **When posting your entry, be sure to post a link to the ABS Forever group in your MOC, and a link to your MOC in this thread. ** The winner will be immortalized in the ABS Forever hall of fame (homepage), a photo of their entry will become the group's "buddy icon" until the next contest, and the winner will be offered the position of moderator in this group. (Unless they don't wish that position.)
Have fun!

Yeah, I'm a senior now, and am about to start my final exams. Unfortunately, many of them are really tough.

However, I am taking a gap year, so I'll have plenty of time come September to build all kinds of things. :D

Considering that there are only two complete entries, maybe extending it even to two extra weeks might be wise.

Congratulations A Sargent on winning this contest with the hilarious Farmtroopers! This was exactly the type of thing I was looking for in this contest, and the colour use is perfect. Thanks to everyone else who entered, and I apologize for the delay. Stay tuned for the next contest when the group has 500 members, if you have suggestions for a 500 member contest let me know.
(Also, you may have noticed that the group icon is slightly different from any of A Sargent's photos. I did a slight crop and edited in a sky background, hope you don't mind my altering your photo Sarge, I just felt this picture would be a perfect icon with these minor changes.)
