Monthly Painting Contest : 2012 categories August to December
« on: August 19, 2012, 08:04:21 PM »
I keep forgetting to post the topic, so to be on the safe side, all of the rest of the year :


August : Special character on foot or horseback
September : Character on Griffon
October : Imperial terrain piece
November : Scene from the train of army followers
December : Season's holidays in the Empire.

Sounds like fun, if I can get my brushes working, is there a thread with the rules in?  cant seem to find one.

Not really.


Rules : Models must be newly painted, unless specifically stated otherwise. Models must be Fantasy AND Empire, unless stated otherwise.
Models can, but must not be GW, and only the painting is evaluated.


I think next year will be more of a conversion year.

Sorry to dissapoint, but this month's competition is for NAMED characters from official GW fluff, like Karl Franz, Thyrus Gormann, Gorbad Ironclaw, Nagash (I'd be curious to see someone come up with a decent conversion for him) and the like.

Must the Special Characters also be Empire? Just curious.

I like that you have given for the next few months. Gives time to plan out what I should finish modeling/converting and start painting up.

Question:
November : Scene from the train of army followers
December : Season's holidays in the Empire.
What are these supposed to be? I just keep picturing the Nulin artillery train pictures from the 6th edition army book. And empire models with red Christmas hats on snowy bases.

The train of army followers consists of men and women living off and providing various services to the army. (bakers, weapon smiths, prostitutes...)


December : Karl Franz on a reindeer....

The September contest is over! I didn't notice because 'Soth edited his post rather than put a new one.

Entries for September closed.


Results :


Darknight 9
Battlekruse 8,5
JAK 7,5
The Peacemaker 7,5

Dirach 7
Dirach2 7

I am very pleased, and not a little surprised. I would like to thank Timbor for having such a nice army to serve as inspiration and pushing me to do a model I otherwise wouldn't have done. Thanks, man!
