Summertime 2014 Competition

Summertime 2014 Competition

Postby timewizard » Fri Jul 04, 2014 4:44 pm

As a result of the competitions poll, we have decided to launch a summertime event. The rules are, as always, pretty straightforward. But this time, the procrastinators have no excuses because there's nearly 2 full months to complete an entry! It can be just about anything. A miniature game mini, vehicle, battleforce, terrain piece or anything else (again, just about ;) ) that you can think of. You'll have plenty of time to decide on and finish your entry. So scroll down for the essentials, and enjoy the summer! Relax, take your time, and enjoy your hobby!

Summertime and Anything Goes!

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 “Summertime 2014 Competition” thread by August 1st. 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 1st of August. 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 28th of August 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 August 28th until midnight GMT on August 30th. 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, entries can be just about anything. The usual requirements of something NIB, unpainted or just primed or basecoated still apply. We know that lately people on this site are working on a variety of different projects, and we also know that during the summer our time is not always our own. So to help us relax a bit, but still keep in the groove of getting projects completed, there's extra time to finish your projects. You can start posting your entries for approval as soon as this message is posted on the site. We'll try to work with Spack for a special medal for this event, more on that as time goes on. So get cracking, lets see some interesting stuff!!

Entry open until August 1st
Contest closes Midnight August 28th
ONE entry per person


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

The gallery has now been created.

Once you've entered the contest, you'll have permission to upload your completed picture.

Well I'm going to be eating my first painting competition with my Scourge. Going to wait until I've got all my models sometime next week before I decide exactly what I will be painting for this.

Just a quick one, TW. Will the competition be resetting to the list you up at the start of the year after this summer special? The reason I'm asking is because if it is the September competition was originally HQ and if this is still the case then I won't paint my Doomsquid until then and leave it out if this competion.

That is still the plan.

Cheers TW. Put my order in today for the rest of my DcZ stuff, hopefully it'll be here before I go back to work. If not I still have enough to enter the competition with.

Remember that you have till the 1st of August to finalize your entry!

And now you have me thinking about the HQ competition for next month. I was going to do the desolator for this comp, but that would leave me without a HQ entry for September. Decisions, decisions!

I wasn't sure I'd have anything I wanted to enter. But a good friend game me a couple of old models recently. So I thought I'd enter one of those.

Image

Its a Battlefleet Gothic Imperial Battleship. What class it is, I have no idea. I need to strip it down and strip all the paint off. But I think in its current state, it still qualifies for entry.

Picked them up at Smoggycon last year, had planned to do them for Dredd, but since Dredd is on the back burner for DzC, well why not do them for this! they'll all be used in that anyway :P


and and, if i get extra time (and wiz allows it!), i'll throw this in as a Stretch Goal!

5 points to anyone who can tell me what it is :P

Looks like a retribution class battleship. The giveaway is all the gun batteries as opposed to the launch bays of the emperor class.
