another painting comp.

Goblinzz -

Morning everyone!

I have decided that it would it would be entertaining to start up a painting competition thread here, and see if we can rope people into joining in. the rules are fairly straightforward, and if anyone has issues with them then they can be changed.

Models MUST be painted for this competition, you cannot just enter something you painted two years ago.

Any model/scale/game system/non-game model is acceptable, but only ONE model/figure can be entered. Yes, I know this is going to lead to tank painting being compared to foot soldier painting, but meh.

The competition will run for approximately 12 weeks, finishing on Sunday the 19th of August. This is both to give people time to paint, but also to accommodate us slow painters and folk who are time pressured, or don't hear about it for a few weeks.

Entry is simple, declare your intent, and then photograph your model in an unpainted or basecoated condition with a piece of paper showing the day, and your username next to it. Post the intent to enter WITH the photo of the model in this thread. I'd encourage people to do WIP in the showcase section, but it's not necessary for the competition.

Final entries must be posted prior to midnight on the 19th of August, late entries will not be accepted. The final entry should consist of no more than THREE photographs, with an as yet unspecified size restriction, posted in this thread, with a comment stating that it is final submission.

Winner will be chosen by popular vote, with voting allowed from Monday AM on the 20th of August, through to PM of the
26th of August. If all else fails I'll make up a survey monkey questonnaire if I can't post a poll directly here.

Sound fair and reasonable to everyone?

I will post a couple of links to guides for uploading photos for us noobs, and also links to a couple of tips on how to take good photographs of models.
well I have decided that I will do a model from storm of magic a scoll of binding.

month two -GH painting

well I have missed the first month of the painting comp. So I have a bit of catch up to do. so the second month is a core unit so here is my unit i need to do it is a mantic skeletons I have only undercoated them and started the wash then realised I need to take photo so have taken the photo and now I have to keep going.

Projects mortis engine

well I have had a slow painting month , I have been working on my mortis engine through.
the mor I paint the more I find detail that I want to high light so it is still going to take a while.
One of the areas I was going to do was not use green as that is the colour of warp stone so I wanted the VC to have a different colour for the sprit so I went the way of a blue grey. it is more like smoke then.
here are couple of WIP shots that I have of the model.

Well this is not a army post but one I really want to share with all.
I do love WHFB 8th it is the best version that fits my play style. full of random terrain effects, Random magic and the game is never over until you remove every model from the table. Well I live in Australia and due to the guide lines of pricing and restrictive sales practices I have had to limit my purchases. So now a lot of my rank and file models are from the second hand market or independent supplies. I still buy my large models and monsters from Games workshop I still love the models but just can not justify the price any more for rank and file.
now that being said I would like to say Mantic Miniatures are on Kickstarter so I would say go and have a look. this is where the rank and file for my new VC army are coming from and I would say to all have a look and it is worth backing them.
thank you for my ramble on now back to the army blog.
