AOS Painter of the Month Competition - May 2013

Re: AOS Painter of the Month Competition - May 2013

even though Im not a great painter I feel I have improved enough over the last year not to be too embarrassed by this competition. Im going to enter in the hope that it inspires me to actually paint my bloody germans. so for my first effort im going to submit a waffen ss squad. im going to have a go at painting camo smocks. unfortunately I have already primed most of my models so not quite as 'out of the box' as some entries.

That's okay Paul, they look good enough for the comp!

I like the models, really good action poses.

You've been placed in the sticky and have permission to upload your finished entry into the completion gallery.

Good luck!

okay, added my picture to the finals gallery. All done nice and early this month!
I took the models out for a game today. They did pretty well supporting my broods with the spore cloud, with only one being felled late in the game by an ork rokkit.

Hey Hunter :) Only the finished pic goes in the gallery. But you do need to post a pre built, or at least pre painted model on this thread.

Those look ace Cain.

I'm going to completely fail to participate again this month. Painting has taken a huge back seat for me at the moment.

Hunter: Don't forget to post a pic here of your unbuilt unpainted model here first. You only have till tomorrow to do that, or your entry will be disallowed. :/

seems like a pretty big base just for a foot!


you need to declare the entire model, and say exactly what it is

If that model part is all you are entering, then yes.

The base was never shown unpainted or just primed so it could be used as a display base for the model later (Spack did this with his cardstock tiger), but in future I believe the rules will be amended to say that the entire model including planned bases will need to be declared and shown before the deadline.

As it stands now, you are only entering the potion of the model that was shown in the picture. Please give me a title for you entry so I can include it in the sticky.

Thanks!
