September 2014 Competition

September 2014 Competition

Postby timewizard » Sun Aug 31, 2014 5:32 pm

As has been said in the last few voting polls, the bar on all these competitions has really been raised to an incredible level. The last one was a 2 month event and the level of finished entries really did show the extra time was put to good use. Now, school is back in. Your homework is due in by the deadline and work that is late will not be accepted! So for the first fall is coming competition, we present….

command and conquer 2.jpg









Command (and conquer the competition! See what I did there?)

Rules are as follows (FOR THE ESSENTIALS ONLY, SCROLL DOWN TO THE RED TEXT)

Each contestant must submit a photo of an unopened box, unassembled model or unpainted model or submit a drawing or photo describing the project into the “Command Competition” thread no earlier than September 1st and no later than September the 15th. Primed only models are acceptable but completely unprimed models are preferred. Direct casts or re-casts of any copyrighted material will result in the post being deleted and the poster being disqualified for that month’s contest.

A list will be posted by one of the moderators in this post listing all eligible contestants for the month's competition. No entries will be accepted or can be changed after the 15th of September. 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 by the 27th of September and must posted in the competition gallery and no entries will be accepted after midnight GMT on that date. Only one entry per person will be permitted and the entry must consist of a single image. Multiple photos on the image are allowable but if more than one photo is uploaded to the gallery by any one entrant at any time, that entrant will be disqualified.

If an entrant has not completed their project by the deadline, they may still enter an incomplete entry if desired, but it will of course be judged as such. The only requirement is to post the entry by the deadline. The members of the site have the final word after all!

Voting will be held from just after midnight September 27th until midnight GMT on September 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 as follows;
Up to 5 entries - 1 vote per registered member
6 to 10 entries - 2 votes per registered member
More than 10 entries - 3 votes per registered member
You can change your vote(s) until the poll is closed. No poll results will be revealed (even to the moderators) until the poll has closed.

ESSENTIALS:

For this month, you have to come up with some type of “Command” or "Head Quarters" unit. Be it a Warlord, a Chapter Master, or even a Commander with a retinue. For those us who have gotten into Dropzone Commander, it could be a single command vehicle or an entire Field Command Battlegroup. Let’s see what everyone can come up with for this event. The winner will probably take a “commanding” lead in the fight for bragging rights as the hobbyist with the most First Place prizes! So let’s see those entries get posted for acceptance. And good luck to all contestants.

Entry open until September 15th
Contest closes Midnight September 27th
ONE entry per person


We look forward to seeing your entries! Good luck to all the entrants.

You could put a scan pic of the baby on here, then a photo of him/her once they arrive. Well... Babies rule the house don't they? :D

Even if that doesn't count, you're not gonna be sleeping much for the next few weeks/months/years... Plenty of paint time :)

Either way, all the best with the birth :)

Go for Creed and Kell in a Chimera - best of both worlds...

Had a think / chat with Lis and I'm going to enter Lorgar this month - keeping things fairly simple. I'm entering with the hope of finishing, but will post whatever I have come deadline day. Will post up a pic in the next day or two :)

Okay, I'm in for something simple, a Desolator for my scourge.

Image

So far it's just been primed, have to clean up some mold lines and such, then away we go!

@Stu - sounds like a plan. Working on it will give you something to do when Lis is awake for those 12-2-4 o'clock feedings! ;)

I'll have to have a look to see if I have anything that qualifies that I want to paint.

I'm a little late to the party and I'm not sure if I'll finish but here is my entry....

Image

A Blood Angels Captain, I converted him up ages ago. I'm not sure how long he'll keep his current weapons once the new codex hits though, as he's to nice a base model to not be on the table all the time!
