The next Kickstarter campaign from Blind Beggar Miniatures will be something a little different in the form of an Alien/Mutant Band.

This will launch at the beginning of November.

I have been having difficulty settling on a name for the band so thought now would be a good time to hold a competition to win a set of the master castings.

Simply: Name The Band!

If you have a suggestion post it here and, if I choose it as the name of the Band for the Kickstarter, I will send you a set of the master castings.

The competition will close on the 1st November at midday UK time.

So, have a look at the pictures of the Band and let's hear your suggestions…..

There are some good suggestions coming in, both here and the other places where it has been posted.
I am making a list of my favourites as they come in.
The weird thing is two people have suggested the same thing and it is on my 'list'…

Keep 'em coming as the competition closes on the 1st November at midday UK time.

Sigmund and the Sea Monsters….Not only a cool band name but you are giving props to a Saturday morning kids show.

"Name The Band!" sounds like a good enough name. It suggests a band who's trying to make a name for themselves. You could make naming the band an activity in the KS comments, to generate interest in the project (much like you're doing now!).

We have a winner!

Thank you to all of you that made suggestions, some of them really did tickle me and it was difficult to choose a single winner.
So much so that I may hold a 'runner-up' poll as well.

But, identify a single winner I had to do, so…..

Greg Chapin came up with the very original title of….

' The Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy Jug and Flute Ensemble'

which really tickled me as a great pretentious name that any sensible manager would have shortened very quickly.

Which he did, and therefore I introduce to you 'JuggenFloot',

I think it has a great 'faux-Germanic' sounding name for a band of multi species wackos.
I hope you agree.
