This month's model:
A plastic (with exceptions, PM me if you don't have any plastic models) rank and file model. The point of this contest is to start with a pretty low detail, low cool factor model, but make it look great. For this month, and this month only, I would like a no sculpting policy on the model, however it's ok if you use green stuff to make the base.
Again, sorry to whoever was thinking of sculpting this month.
You will be judged by our forum members on what model was the best painted,
1.) You may
2.) One 20x20mmbase per entry. You can paint multiple models on this base, but only one base. No dioramas, no monster bases.
3.) You will post four pictures: one must be a "before" photo, just bare metal or basecoat, but the other three can be whatever you want: a zoom, a front shot or a back shot, whatever you wish... But, it cannot be a collage!
4.)Pictures are to be taken on a white/pale blue background, or any non distracting background. This can be, say a terrain hill/forest/whatever, but no, no, no army display boards. I think models look best on a plain white back ground, but whatever suits you.
5.) The organisers of the competition have the right to refuse entry to any applicant if they feel it doesn't meet the criteria.
6.) The thread will be locked after the deadline, no more posts!
7.)This is a community event and like all hobbies is designed to be fun, so enjoy yourself, keep us posted, and good luck!
Do not post anything, besides your final pictures on this thread until the contest is over. After the deadline, I will open a voting thread (might be a poll, so keep your eyes open!). Vote there. The voting will be different the next month, you will have three votes, a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place vote. You will give to 1st place model 3 points, 2nd place 2 points, and so on. This helps to have the votes flowing around, and reduces the chances of a tie. I'll post this with the voting thread too, so this is just an overview, and is the only rule change, except the model restrictions for this month.
I will also open a thread for discussion about this contest and whatever. If you have a question, PM me right away. I WILL help, so don't be afraid to enter the contest!
If you manage to pull off a WIN, you may choose the next model to be painted. Last month, Spawn Man won, and chose a RnF model, so here we are.
The contest is OPEN!
Deadline is: February 26, 2011
See here for the exact end date!
