anyone up for a new contest?

Post  Kuyp on Tue Aug 09, 2011 2:11 pm

I was thinking that its about time we have a new contest going. I was inspired by the chaos dwarf siege tower that's on here(looks great btw) and was thinking something along those lines. Making a set of rules for a unit or monster or such model it and paint it up. I don't think we have to worry about giving it a points cost but maybe that's something we could talk about latter on. what are everyone opinions on this?

Sounds good to me! I've got a model that I made a long time ago and I've been meaning to make a couple more to make a unit, maybe this will inspire me to do that.

Although, considering the lack of participants even in single-model painting contests in the past, maybe we should tone it down a bit for the first contest back, either way I'm good and will enter.

Start with a single mini I think. As Nathan pointed out sometimes shit happens and the contests peter out. I'm in for a single mini for sure.

Sounds good to me too... I've got a little project I'm working on that would fit into the siege tower theme Wink

Seriously though... last contest on here I posted my lobotomized black orc musician with little-to-no follow-up interest and the whole thread was basically forgotten about, seeming before the thing was even wrapped up.

Is this still going to be a converted fig with custom rules or are we going to just do a single model competition, either way im in.

Given the track record I think it might be best to go with as few stipulations as possible. Here's maybe something though...

we start this off with everyone painting a mini on a 20mm base. Next up a 25mm theme, and up from there?

Should we bother with keeping score on this? Do anything for the winner? League points for all finished participants? What's the best and most fun motivator?

I was thinking of maybe an IoB rat or one of the warhammer empire peasent dudes I picked up. I got the fat burgomeister looking dude and the kid covered in candles. I've also got some Avatars of War stuff I need to put together at some point too. Hunh...

Anyone else want to try a 20mm theme? I'm hardly the boss of this stuff.

I like that idea, I was going to do a cavalry model but it can wait a while. Lord knows I have a bunch of unpainted 20mm based models! In fact I think I have a nice dwarf lord around here somewhere that has been waiting on paint for years now.

sure 20 mm sounds like a good start and work our way up from there and then some other random things if interest is kept. but i think if we are just going to do something small and simple like this the deadline will be the 31st of august. that should be easy to get accomplished in that time frame and will not leave for a big time gap to lose interest

carson would it be possible to award each participant that finish a mini before the deadline with say 2 league points. the winner we could give 10 points or something like that.

Could we include up to 25 mm models, there is a lizardman hero I'd like to do up for this one.

Do a skink for this one and save the Sauria for the next one.

I'm sure you can do whatever you want, but maybe you've got skink or something?

Oh man. Now I am trying to figure out what to paint up. I am toying with the idea of one of the gnoblars. I liked some of the ones that came on Ogre sprues. Too many choices in my collection! It would be easier if they were some kind of sub theme for me to work with. Man.
