Alright folks, after a long hiatus, the Painting Contest is ready to begin once again and this time around, thanks to our own Bitsandkits, we have a wickedly cool prize to give to the winner: a Battalion/Battle Force of choice! We can't thank Bits enough for the donation but we can give him the shout out for it so be sure to stop by the Bits and Kits Website
to check it out. Now on to the rules for the contest.
Heresy Online Painting Contest Rules
1 - Final mini pics only. Wips can go in the ongoing projects or Modelling and Painting section.
2 - Minis can be as fully converted/unconverted as desired.
3 - This Painting contest will last for a total of 3 months, ending on March 31st.
4 - Minis do not need to be newly painted for this. They may be ones you have already done or even displayed on the other forums. What mini you use is up to you. This includes manufacturer as well. This is not a GW only thing so feel free to throw in minis from Privateer, Rackham, etc.
5 - At the end of the timeframe, a new poll will be made in order for all on the forum to vote for who they feel has the best painted mini. The winner will choose the next Theme to be used for the next 3 months.
6 - Only one entry person and the entry MUST be painted by that person.
7 - One mini per entry. Dioramas, squads, etc, are not allowed.
8 - One picture of the miniature held in front of your monitor with Heresy Online showing is required as proof that this is in fact your miniature. If you are unable to take the proof pic, your mini will be disallowed.
9 - Post entry pics here in the thread, direct links only not attachments. Also, no more than 4 pics per entry, not including the proof pic. We do no need 15-20 pics of the same model.
10 - DO NOT ASK QUESTIONS HERE IN THE THREAD!!!
If you have a question you need answered, send me a private message. We want to keep the thread as uncluttered as possible to show of the minis.
Any mini is acceptable for this contest be it a single marine or a titan, there is no limitation to the entries as far as a theme goes. Also, keep in mind that this is a painting contest, not a conversion contest and as such it is the paint job we will be voting on, NOT the super bad ass conversion you have done. Once again, a special thanks go out to Bits and Kits
for sponsoring this contest. With all that said, good luck to all who wish to enter and let's get those models posted!
