April 2016 Painting Contest

April 2016 Painting Contest

Postby Talus » Fri Apr 01, 2016 12:53 am

Welcome to another edition of ''Insert Witty Comment Here!"

You should all know the routine by now, but lets just recap:

Entries should be entered in a new/unpainted state, though primed/base coloured are also acceptable. We just prefer everyone to be on the same page when starting entries off.

To highlight for those who are new to these contests, when submitting a final entry to the gallery, please only submit a single picture! this makes it so much easier for the voting poll, and ensures that entries aren't lost in a cluttered gallery! Montage shots are perfectly acceptable, and encouraged since it helps show off all the angles of your entry!


Key dates to remember are these:

Entry closes on the 23rd of April
Contestants have until Midnight on the 27th to submit a final entry,
If all entrants have submitted a final entry to the gallery, voting may be held earlier!
Voting starts 00.01 GMT on the 28th
Voting ends 00.01 GMT on the 30th.


Best of luck to you all!


Entrants so far:

Talus - DC + Marvel Heroes
RotweillerofJustice - BAE Warrior
Darklighter - Dreadnoughts
Angelwing - Necromunda Ratskins

---- ATTENTION----

As of May 2016, we will be going back to the schedule'd contests! Each month a specific criteria for the entry!

A roster will be drawn up and posted in another thread for people's consideration and input!

So, i'm going to enter a bit of everything this month! No idea how much of it will actually get done though

If approved, the line up is this:

Animated Batman
Arkham Knight Batman
Thor
Cyclops
Rogue
Wolverine
Colossus
Deadpool

Thor is a throw back from when i did the rest of the Avengers, he's base coated and has had some work done on his base, he can be dropped from the line up if deemed unfit for entry, but everything else is new out of the box

Can I enter Dreadnought(s) My plan is paint up a few of these bad boys, but with time constraints I may only get one finished... If as a concept people are ok with that I'll get a picture up ASAP.

enter what you like DL, specifics start next month :P

I'm only entering more than i might finish because i honestly dont know how my arm will behave, if its good, then i might get them all finished, if its bad, maybe just 2 or 3

No one ever said you had to entirely finish your entry, just enter what you have by the deadline!

I finally got around to posting this my aim is to get 2 Furioso 1 Libby and 1 Standard Dreadnought finished with the potential of two more Death Company dread ready for paint in the wings.... I will definitely finish one in the dead line but I can't guarantee my free time this month so I can't say for sure if I'll get more done.

Necromunda ratskins. I'm aiming to do these 5, and add more if time allows.

General notice for everyone

If you want to add more to your entry, you need to do it before the entry deadline (same rules as initial entry apply), since you are in effect changing your entry

I am well on track to get 4 Dreadnoughts finished. I'll leave the death company ones for another time.

Sure... just my luck...

my rattle can of grey primer ran out after doing ONE side of this bunch of misfits...

so i pick up my other can, bone white, ran out after HALF a side...

so then came my base primer, brown!

these guys are really quite colourful already considering they're just primed!
