VeezCon Chronopia Painting Contest
« on: April 11, 2008, 05:47:10 AM »
Rules

There is only one category, but you may enter it as many times as you like:
Individual/Warband/Large Creature.

If the figure is meant as a member of a warband (i.e. spearman #3) it must be entered as part of a Warband.
There is no requirement for the figures to have been started prior to the start date (today) but they must not have been finished prior to the start date (today)
Ex.  You started your blackblood leader six months ago and it has been primed and has one arm painted, so long as it is not finished before today you may enter it.


I will be the sole judge.  You are allowed to hate me for my choices, but donít hate me because I am beautiful.  Figures/Warbands/Big things will be judged on the following:
1) Quality of paint job (raw skill): 20 pts
2) Style of paint job (color choice, etc.): 20 pts
3) Figure base (decorate the base somehow): 5 pts
4) Figure preparation (clean up and conversions): 10 pts
5) Chronopianess of figures (your GW Bretonnian Knight proxying as a firstborn will not cut it): 10 pts

Entries must be complete by 1 July.  Judging will be complete by 7 July.
There will be three placed winners; 1st, 2nd and 3rd.  Prizes to be announced later.

Please declare interest in joining via PM to me.  Entry into the contest is open until 15 June.

Since Veez didn't say anything, I will be providing one prize.  I am going to make a piece of terrain to go up, I'll post pics when done.  It'll be worth winning I promise ;D

I am still hoping to have a cool terrain piece done, but I need to get on the casting.  My figure is around halfway finished.  So anyone else planning on doing this or should I just keep my terrain piece?

So I'm confused, I was going to email my pictures to you tonight as I haven't had time to send them to you yet, that's fine right?

You're two statements appear to contradict each other.  Contest is closed, and we have to post them by the first of July?

Well, I'll start us off with one figure, I'll be posting the other later as I have some touch up to do still.
Updated the pics with clearer images.  Also, added my Ogre Deathseeker.

Wow, very nice.  I love the rust details.  Hopefully everyone else hurries up and posts otherwise there will be slim competition for us.  Reminds me, I need to add some finishing touches to my Ogre today.

That's really nice Pekulior. Red is a hard coloyur to pull off, at least for me. I'll post mine shortly.

I've found that with a good base coat, it makes it much easier to do the shading. I've also started using a lot of the P3 paint from Privateer Press

It may be a little cliche, but I've titled this piece "Hold the Line".  I've seen people do display bases before, and always wanted to give it a shot, so ... I did.  Thanks again to Veez for pulling this together and for breathing a little life back into my favorite game.

Very nice, I'd love to do a display like that sometime.
