2014 year long paint challenge ideas...


Recommended Posts

Rules are pretty much the same as last year:


They Might Be Giants: the big, bold and badass challenge

General Rules:
-Entries have to be Reaper
-Entries must be in by December 31st at 11:59 pm CST
-Enter as many times as you want but only one entry per person per category can win.
-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 entry. They do not need to be stitched into a single image file.
-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.
-You are allowed to enter miniatures that will also be entered into other contests that might overlap ours.
-We are not going to police your entries as to when they were started\finished. We hope that people would paint something for this contest and not just enter something they finished a while ago as this is a fun and friendly contest.
-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.


Basing & Modding Rules

-You do not have to use Reaper produced stuff for your bits or for basing or for modification.



1. Reaper diorama (no size restrictions)

2. Reaper single figure 

3. non Reaper open


A word about size


There's a lot of questions about how big of a figure is big enough.  The challenge is for giants or giant sized figures.  We're looking for figures that cover a 50mm base in at least one dimension, width or height, or are larger than that.  In D&D terms, those are Large, Huge or Gargantuan bases. Some of the Special Edition and Master Series might not quite meet that requirement but are included too.   If you are not sure if your figure is big enough, then it likely isn't.  You have a whole year to paint. That's a lot of time to work on a large figure and you should need most of it. We expect to see impressive entries again this year!

General question; which thread shall we upload to? This one or a new one to come later? (Missed last year's so not sure)


(Edit for typos)



Inarah stated a few pages ago that since it just started that she'll get some upload threads started later, we shouldn't be done with these yet since we just started (or most of us haven't even gotten a concept yet).
