hello!
so, i've got several items i want to use as bases for either scenes or individual characters:
-candle holders
-a weird pottery thing
-and just random other objects

would it be frowned upon to use these as bases, since i didn't hand make them?
the most i'd do is slightly modify, cover, and/or paint them before adding the figures...would that be alright in terms of either modeling competitions or events?

Anything that isn't the standard base technically needs your opponent permission. That said, in anything other than a tournament, I've never found anyone who objects to models with a decorative base. As long as you don't specifically model someone to have a particular advantage (like having them very high up to get a better line of sight) it's usually fine.

thank you!
and it wouldn't be looked down upon in a modelling competition?
...why're "modeling" and "modelling" both words?

Ah, for competition modelling, I would suggest you ask who ever is organising the competition if it's ok - that's the best way. I really doubt they'd have a problem using odds and ends to make up a scenic base though.

Modeling and modelling are both correct, but it's because of a difference in American English and British English. One of those odd little differences :)

I'm moving this thread into the proper forum as you will get more answers in there.

LMAO, sorry that statment has really tickled me, British English indeed.:laugh:
That would be English then, but I get what you mean and its valid.

I always thought one referred our hobby and the other to someone standing still wearing a bikini for a photoshoot in february.

Of course, you can always turn up at GW wearing a bikini, but unless you're (a) attractive and (b) preferably female it may get frowned upon...
