5th Annual Reaper Forums Large Model Challenge, Rules and Discussion

Recommended Posts

 
Reaper contest:
 
-- entries must be Reaper figures. Any 40mm or larger figure, metal or Bones, in production or OOP can be entered
-- any figure which was painted and finished in 2017 is eligible
-- figures that have won a statue level award as a ReaperCon entry are ineligible.  This includes a Sophie, Golden Maelee, etc.
-- the deadline for entries is Dec 31, 2017 at 11:59 pm CST
-- a diorama is defined as two or more figures on a scenic base that helps to tell a story. The diorama may have smaller figures, as long as there is one large sized Reaper figure in the entry
-- you may enter as many times as you like, but only one prize per person will be awarded
-- each entry needs to be uploaded to the appropriate thread. Please attach your entries using the forum uploading feature or hotlink from the Inspiration Gallery. We want to make sure they're visible at all times.
-- you may submit between one and four images of each Single Figure entry and up to six images for Diorama. They do not need to be stitched into a single image file.
-- you are allowed to enter miniatures that will also be entered into other contests that might overlap ours.
-- the judges or Reaper reserves the right to remove entries if deemed inappropriate, but we're pretty laid back here and this is just to cover our butts.
-- the judges and Reaper can clarify and amend rules at will.
 
Prizes:
 
Reaper has approved prizes in each category:
 
1st prize $50
2nd prize $30
random drawing prize $20  
 
If there are fewer than 8 entries in any category, only 1st prize and the random prize will be awarded. 
 
Image Enhancement:
 
-- digital enhancement ("Photoshopping") of your entry is strictly prohibited.
-- no clone brush, healing brush, airbrush, or other brush work. Fix your paint with paint, not with Photoshop.
-- no adding or removing background elements from the image
-- if you add a logo or a watermark Reaper cannot use your image in their gallery. Note that if your image is selected for the Reaper gallery, you will be credited by name under the image.
-- cropping, global color balance, and global level adjustments are allowed ("global" means "the entire image." You may not "pop" colors by only selecting some areas for level adjustment.
 
Non-Reaper contest:
 
-- entries which fit the above requirements (40mm+) or busts that were not made by Reaper can be entered here. 
-- there is no Reaper prize support for this category
-- 3rd party prize support will be determined by donations near the end of the contest.

At the moment, I've got some non-Reaper huge minis on the table, but I don't have any proper Reaper huge minis this time.

 

I haven't sat out a year before, so I might just end up entering the non-Reaper category this year.

Ooooooh...I just realized that after I've finished Ma'al drakar, I can enter him here. :D

 

...Also, I just measured my Mini Ma'al (Bones hydra), and I didn't even realize it before but he fits into the 100+ mm category. Cool! 

 

Huzzah!

I know it's a long distance run but since we're halfway there, I thought it was a good idea to revive the flame. Keep the pace, hold the race.

How tall is he? Do you have a ruler? There are two categories, 40-99mm and 100+mm.

Goremaw is most assuredly the 100+mm. He's about 6 inches tall or so, which would be 150mm+

      I decided to paint this fella for Ladystorm's contest a couple months ago, and then promptly forgot about him until this past Saturday. So here's my semi-rushed, totally tabletop but still fun to paint Yeti chief.
      I was hoping to achieve that polar bear not-quite-white-but-sorta-yellowish-white look for him. I think it worked out alright, but I have an idea to try to improve upon it in the future.

      It got late, so change of plans and here he is:

       
      Painted in 1 evening, using only 4 colors. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. 
       
      Colors: Splintered bone, Turkey Brown, Nightsky Blue and Blackened Brown. I was just going to use the first 3, but decided I needed something darker to finish it up.

      So depending on how much you pay attention to memes, you may be aware of one very popular one called "Somebody toucha my spaghet!" I couldn't tell you why that's what popped into my head back in October when @ladystorm first posted about her contest, but I tend to just accept that my brain comes up with really dumb ideas and just have fun with it. 
       
      So, I present to you: Somebody toucha my spaghyeti!
       

       

       

       

       
      I had a TON of fun painting this guy! The kid (who toucha his spaghyeti) came from 03233: Townsfolk X: Children, sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I modified the stick in his hand into a fork with greenstuff. The yeti, of course, is 77434: Yeti Chieftan, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I sculpted the bowl of spaghetti with Sculpey.
      I hope y'all like him!
