Hello everyone! Welcome to the thread for the

Rules


  1. The category is decided upon and posted in the Painting Deathmatch Calendar. This month's category is:
    • Free for All - Any model or any sized unit from any company
  2. Only models that are painted wholly within the month are eligible to enter (i.e. unpainted or only primed at the start of the month). Entrants are not required to post a photograph of the model before painting. If you have a question as to whether or not your model qualifies, please feel free to post in this thread.
  3. You may join the painting deathmatch in progress at any time, but must submit photographs of the completed miniature by midnight GMT, 31 May 2014. WIP images are welcomed and encouraged.
  4. Miniatures that are completed in time will be eligible to win the deathmatch. The deathmatch winner will be decided in a separate voting thread by the Heresy Online community. Votes should be cast not simply on painting skill, but on merit, including creativity, application of painting techniques, individual artist improvement, etc. The winner of the deathmatch will be awarded with the Mark of Slaanesh award.
  5. Winners from the previous month are able to participate in the next months painting deathmatch, but they are not eligible to win in consecutive months.

This is not the year long Army Painting Challenge run by humakt but a separate Monthly event. Though entries in one can also be entered into the other (assuming it fits into the category chosen for this deathmatch).

Good luck to all participants!

PS - If you have any feedback on the running or structure of the monthly deathmatches throughout the course of the next month, please comment in the Calendar thread as we will take into account any feedback.

Question; In my paintinglog I put a picture of Bel'Akor that I took on the 14th of April, where he was primed black.

However, I didn't start him until today (as per my post in the blog). Can I submit him to this competition or do you require more proof that I only started him today, due to being busy at work? If you do, I will have to submit another model.

I just wanted to make sure I don't step on any toes :)

Primer doesn't count. We are currently working on the honour system, so if you say you didn't start until this month that is good enough.

Thanks for checking.:eek:k:

See now I have a dilemma. Due to the wonder of eBay, I managed to get Fulgrim NIB for about 75% RRP.

He will arrive Wednesday, and I'm seriously considering making him my entry this month...

Erm...aren't we supposed to post a pic of the unpainted models in front of that month's entry thread to timestamp them as unpainted at the start of the month...?
Pretty sure we're working on the honour system these days, seeing as how there's no real reason at all to cheat in these competitions. I'm sure Dave will have the final word though.

Are we actually supposed to do this?

I know some people do and some don't?

Rule 2 above:

Entrants are not required to post a photograph of the model before painting.
A couple of people who access Heresy via mobiles mentioned they had difficulty taking a photo in front of the thread, so I removed the restriction to make it easier for everyone to enter.
