Summer League "Character" Paint challenge.

Post  ScottRadom on Sat Jul 04, 2009 10:53 pm

So here's the first official league paint challenge. Don't worry, it's not an army challenge. The goal is simple, paint a "Character" model and submit pic's here to the site. Don't worry if you're not greta at taking pic's, everyone is going to go easy on each other for pic quality. The goal is to get a single "Character" submitted to the site for people to vote on.

What do you get? Well.... winner moves up two spots on the ladder and 5 league points. I'd like every member to get 2 points for submiting there pic as well (pending Carson approval). But wait... there's more exciting offers! (RIP Billy Mays!) One randomly selected winner will recieve a prize from the den. Don't know what it is yet, but it'll be something lack-lustre and not worth fighting over for sure!

So get the brushes going. Voting will begin on Aug 7th with a three tiered voting system. First place votes will be worth 5. 3 for second, and one for 3rd.

This is a great opportunity to start a thread asking questions, show your mini in a WIP thread and get advice, anything you like. The model can be whatever you want, so long as it fits the definition of "character" and can be a non GW fig, a fig from another army, anything, so long as it's mounted on the appropriate gaming base and can be recognized as what you're trying to portray. Good luck everyone!

Now, just to decide on what Character fig I'll do up.............

I'm looking forward to this and see what everyone comes up with.

I'm going to paint up my Bretonnian General, I painted the base last night... complete with stained glass window! Can we enter more than one model or is one the limit? I have two characters that I'm hoping to get painted this month.

I'll be starting a WIP thread for this once I get around to taking pictures.

I think you can only enter one, but if you paint two you get double the amount to choose from!

I am waffling on this one as to what to paint. I wanted to do a Grimgor Ironhinde, but I got one from a friend painted in the mail. I bought it from a charity auction a long time ago and it was a mystery fig. So I might paint a lizard of all things, or a dark elf, or a slayer.... what to choose!

2 days left for entries... am I going to win by default? I think everyone in the league should at least have a character painted that they can enter!

Ok good, I would hate for it to be that easy! We should have a few more though, with 2 points just for entering everyone in the league should have one!
