AOS Painter of the Month Competition - April 2013

AOS Painter of the Month Competition - April 2013

Welcome to the April 2013 Painter of the Month Competition.

Each contestant must submit a photo of an unopened box, unassembled model or unpainted model or models or submit a drawing or photo describing the project into the "Painter of the Month April 2013" thread. Primed only models are acceptable but completely unprimed models are preferred. All genres of modeling are acceptable; i.e. any 40K, WFB, LOTR, FoW, plastic, metal, paper or collectable model as well as any scratch built project including terrain pieces. On the 15th of month, a list will be posted by one of the moderators listing all eligible contestants for that month's competition. No entries will be accepted after that post. No exceptions.

During the month, wip photos can be put into the thread, and in fact are encouraged, but may not be placed in the competition gallery.

All completed entries must be submitted between the 15th and the 26th of April and must posted in the competition gallery. No entries will be accepted after midnight GMT on the 26th. Only one entry per person will be permitted and the entry will consist of a single photo. Multiple images on the photo are allowable but if more than one photo is uploaded to the gallery at any time, the entrant will be disqualified.

Voting will be held from April 27th until midnight GMT on April 29th. At that time voting will be closed and the winners will be announced.

Every registered member of the site may vote. The total number of votes each member may cast will depend on the number of entrants.

The first place winner will be named the "Painter of the Month" and will be listed on the site. In addition, first place gets 3 points, 2nd place 2 points and third place 1 point.

In the event of a tie for any place or position, both entrants will receive the appropriate number of points. At the end of the year a "Painter of the Year" as well as the 2nd and 3rd place finishers will be announced. The winner will be determined by the total number of points received throughout the year.
If an entrant has not completed their project by the deadline, they may still enter the contest. The only requirement is to post the entry by the deadline. The members of the site have the final word after all!

We are still working on getting prizes for the year end winners. More on that as it becomes known.

Good luck to all the contestants!

Talus - High King
Socaddict - Plastic Soldier Company tiger and Sherman firefly
Cain Tiberius - Kaeris' Arcanists crew for Malifaux

Lets try and paint something!

Plastic Soldier Company tiger. Going to build it as a late version, and might even try and make a diorama.

If an order from somewhere comes in in time, I might have more than one tank involved.

Looks interesting Socaddict, welcome aboard!

I've been wondering how the plastic soldier models compare to the flames of war ones.

No idea on FoW models, but I've bought boxes of the PSC T-34, PzIV, StuG, Panther, M4A2 Sherman, T-70 and Tiger.

Been really impressed with the amount of detail and quality of all of them.

Look at the first post in the thread. You have to submit a picture of the project.

Make sure to read that post for all the rules of the competition.

That is Kaeris in the middle with the wings. 2 gunslingers on the left (Looks like Neo as an old man with beard an hat, and the other looks like trinity). And 3 Fire Gamin.
