Scroll to the bottom of this post for the new theme and cutoff date, be sure to review the rules as some changes have been made for the better
Competition Rules:
The contest will be running continuously from now until the kickstarter launch.

There is no fee for entry, all that is required is your name and email address, later on after the kickstarter you will be sent a email asking for your address and any other pertinent information.

Prizes will include terrain , bases and other items from the kickstarter campaign.

Submissions must be painted by you and fit the current theme

You many submit more than one entry, however only one will be judged during any given session.

A session last from the time you are given a theme until the time you are awarded your points for the entry at the next issue release. The exact dates will be indicated in each issue in the allocated location at the end of these rules along with the new theme.

Limit your submission to 5 or less images, with at least 1 front view, and 1 back view.

All submissions should be made through a direct Facebook message or sent to us through email at rocketpropelledgames@yahoo.com , or be posted in this thread

Whomever has the highest scoring miniature for the session will receive a spot in the featured column and as our Facebook cover photo for their mini.

Criteria for judging includes:
Craftsmanship , how good you mini looks when all is said and done, accounts for 50% of your points for the session.

Creativity, we want to see the best you can do, make your pieces interesting, nobody is going to judge you, except for maybe the judges, but that’s our job, the majority of creativity takes place in the base, but modifying minis also works to this advantage, just be sure to include a photo of the unmodified mini when you submit. This accounts for an additional 50% of your points for the session.

Theme modifier , if your submission obviously fits the theme you will be awarded an additional 10% to the total points earned for the session, if your submission does not somehow fall into the initial theme, you will only be eligible for half of the total points for the session. Note that since this rule has been made after the beginning of the first competition all entries from the first seesion are eligible for full points for the first session regardless of whether it falls into the theme or not.

Each session you are eligible for 100 points, 110 if you count the theme modifier. At the end of each session your points will be added up and your progress will be shown.
Surprise us with something truly spectacular and you may be awarded some bonus points.
There are quite a few different tiers for prizes, based on the amount of points you accrue , as points are earned new tiers will unlock showing how many points you need to get to the next tier, and the approximate value of the prize for that tier.

Once you have reached a tier you are eligible for a prize, keep painting minis to make the prizes better.

Theme for session 2 : The unwanted hero/ heroine. Usually a hero/heroine would be brave, and fit of body and mind, and astound all that they meet. Not in this case, we want you to paint up a hero/heroine that is the complete opposite, they should be cowardly, un kept , and drive those around them to tears and laughter.

Have fun with this, be creative and remember, everyone can be a winner.
The submission cutoff date is September 19th 2012 at 11.59 PM PST

To view the entries and the standings of the current entrants , download the PDF in the last post. If you did not participate last week you can still get in on this , just submit your entry by September 19th by 11:59 pm , if you submitted an entry last week, we would like to see you all back this week, the more points you accumulate after each week the closer you get to earning a prize. Everyone that reaches at least tier 1 will earn a prize. Tier 1 will be announced during the next session so put those painting skills to the test. We wanna see what you can do!

Shrimpy Culvertson, cook/ratter, and Masher. Shrimpy is small and is unable to carry Masher around for too long. Here we see them resting a bit before continuing. Just don't ask what Shrimpy puts in the stew.

The model is about 23-24 mm in height (toes to top of head) and has no fingers (flat paddles), neck detail, or eyes (hollow). He's missing a couple of toes too. Enjoy.

Single curmudgeon with own brush and paint seeks only aesthetically pleasing models for base coating, high lights, shadowing, and more. Will strip if necessary. Are you primed? PM me now.

We will be moving from the short newsletter model that we have been releasing every few weeks, to a much larger magazine style publication, there will be loads of content, and the releases will be about once every 5 weeks or so. That being said, the tournament will continue on with its two week sessions. We sure hope everyone is enjoying the content we are producing. We would also like to announce that there will be a reader submission section , this can include anything you guys can think up, from artwork to articles and short stories, anything is game. submissions for such content should be sent to our email rocketpropelledgames@yahoo.com

If you have questions concerning anything at all , please feel free to contact us
