Hey all, I havent posted here for an age, but I took part in some of the old speed modelling challenges couple years back, and see my account is still active ;P
I've just been informed about DW3, and in all seriousness, i have NO REASON not to give it a shot.
So just posting here now to mark my intention to join the fun :wave:
Will hopefully post some actual content in a day or two

Ok Iíve been turning this over in my head for a few hours...
Her parents were murdered in the war, the monsters stormed though her village and viciously massacred the people, and laid waste to the land with their void magics. She still hears the screams of her family as she cowered, alone in an attic cupboard.
But they found her.
Unfortunately for them she was one of those few that could manipulate the mystical forces, and the trauma of this event, combined with the dark magics that her attackers used, awakened her latent powers. But not before they used and tortured her for their vile experiments and conjurings Ė the body and blood of the pure and innocent is a powerful tool in the dark arts.
When she awoke, the place was a smoking ruin, and scattered around her were the dark artefacts that the monsters had used to kill her family and friends. She had no recollection of her transcendence when her power had erupted, or that she had used the relics around her to slaughter her captors. Only the painful memory of her family served to dull her bodily pain, as she slipped back into unconsciousness.
There she lay for days, until an allied scouting party came by and found her, nearly dead. They gathered up the artefacts and took her with them, unable to prise one of the objects from her grasp, as if it were fused to her skin.
Although she recovered she never spoke a word to her rescuers, and would barely eat or sleep, the recollection of her ordeal consumed her. The relic never left her grasp, it looked fairly worthless to the people that were taking care of her, and they assumed it to be some sort of memento, so thought it best to leave her be.
They soon located some distant relatives, and she was sent to live with them, in the hopes that her condition would improve among family. But her disposition did not settle well with her new Ďfamilyí and she was despised and unwanted, which only worsened her condition. Her powers began to manifest slowly, and the people around her only loathed her further at the horrors she was able to conjure.
When the call came for individuals with special talents to go to war against the emerging machine race, regardless of age or condition, they were only too happy to send her packing.
So, to summarise:
Young human girl, age 13~14
Her artefact is the large egg shaped relic that she clutches, which she uses to channel her power to create dark energy attacks, eg, 'dark bolt', 'dark wave', etc, and to manifest her nightmares. In a pinch she can use it to bludgeon enemies too.
Fairly pale skin, very large, deep-set dark rings around her eyes due to little or no sleep. Thin, probably malnourished, some dark hair.
-Most, if not all of the designs Iíve had a look at have large, heavily armoured characters. Mine is small and fragile looking. I suppose that she could employ a dark energy barrier for defence, but visually this wont communicate as well as big metal armour, so I might need to adjust her character somewhat.
-Most of my character work has a very stylised approach to it, because thatís what I like doing; but again, the theme of others so far seems to be grit fantasy.
-I suck at concepts, so the next stage is going to be fun :dunno:
