May 2016 Painting Contest

Postby Talus » Sun May 01, 2016 12:15 pm

Ok! Something new here!

As per the Contest Line Up posted last month, we're now doing specific models each month!

To start it off, we have a lovely little one that everyone can do! (in theory!)

Scenery!

Bases, mud huts, bunkers, skyscrapers, galaxy spanning space stations!

Any scale, any system, so long as it's a scenic piece and NOT a game piece!

Edit-

Criteria changed to anything goes!



Key dates to remember are these:

Entry closes on the 20th of May
Contestants have until Midnight on the 28th 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 29th
Voting ends 00.01 GMT on the 31st.


Best of luck to you all!



If there aren't enough people with scenery pieces to enter, we will consider changing this back to a free for all anything goes month!

These building as made by a member of the DZC Community FB group, and the vehicles are various n-guage scenery pieces. I won't be able to do ALL whats in the pic. But I'll be doing at least some of these.

I'll be back after I've had think. I'm leaning towards some home made promethean pipelines or barricades, but I have to have a dig through my bits boxes first.

What about 40k fortifications? They are scenic but also game pieces...
If I can get hold of one for cheap, I was going to enter an aegis defence line.

I just didn't have any terrain in the pipeline to do. I was hoping to get a defence line cheap, but it wasn't to be this time.
I'll get a pic up of my freestyle entry soon.

Sorry I'd been meaning to get an entry sorted but I've been working on some new Tau units and lost track of time! I'll get a pic of the stuff I've built and use them.

I almost forgot to take a photo before starting paint! My entry will be a Stormsurge battle suit and a Breacher squad with assorted drones.

Necromunda house cawdor complete gang. There is an extra heavy, juve and ganger to take it to 20 models, enabling me to use them as imperial guard squads.
