Paint an Orc Day

Post  Kuyp on Thu Aug 16, 2012 9:46 pm

Just as the title says; I'm going to have a painting competition. Here is an outline;
1) One figurine will be supplied each contestant.
2) Each contestant must finish the figurine in the given time.
3) Some paints will be supplied, but contestants can bring paints from home.
4) Must bring your own brushes.
5) No basing necessary.
This isn't going to be anything fancy, just a time to get together and paint. There will be a prize for the best painted figurine, voted by the populace. Contest day not fully decided yet, but I'm thinking Sunday August 26th at the Dragon's Den. Let me know who is interested in advance so I can get the figurines ready.

Clever. Clever indeed.

It is a good contest idea I will be at work for this one though. I would be interested in incorporating this at toon con and Sept 8th if we want to make a series of it.

Looks like I'm going out of town for the weekend. If I'm back in time I'll try to stop in but I'm not sure I'll make it. I really like the idea of a series though, I'm sure pretty much everyone has a stock of minis that they'll never get around to painting so it shouldn't be too tough to find the models.

I'd be up for this as well. If it's a success and we want to run another for ToonCon, I have spare clanrats I could donate.

Voted. That's too bad that only 3 people were able to make it. I love the idea and I think we should definitely do it again. I voted for the second entry but I think the other two could have been on par with it if they had been given a wash of devlan mud (or whatever the new version of that is). They just lack the depth that the second one has and it's a really easy fix, especially with an orc.

I too love the idea of the contest. Once golf season be over I would love to come out for something like this.

As Nathan said I found it impossible to not vote for the second mini. Some real basic techniques would work wonders on the other two to bring them up to par. Getting a semi regular paint day together I think would help the community put stronger looking armies on the table for sure.
