Painting Contest - Be a Spaceship Superstar! (ends Sept 7th, 2014)

Recommended Posts

 

If I do a squad, and want to also enter the squad leader as a single 'cause he's that bad-arse, would that be cool? ( I'm guessing that this will be a 'no', but it can't hurt to ask, right? )

On that note, how about building a diorama so that the figures involved are removable, and entering them as both dioramas and single figures?

 

 

No and no.  Treat the competition as you would an physical one.  The mini can only be on one table for the judges.

I understand the rules regarding nudity, what about (possibly excessive) gore? Is this something that should be linked to?

 

Regarding chronoscope, is zombie apocalypse stuff sci-fi?

 

There are no official forum rules on gore. If you are really concerned folks might find it offensive, feel free to send me a link to a pic before posting. Since I tend not to find anything offensive, I'll run it by my wife.  ::D:

 

Unless something happens between now and the end of the competition :blink: , a Zombie Apocalypse isn't reality, so as long as it is a modern style Zombie Apocalypse I'd consider it Sci-Fi.

Took a few pictures as I was packing up. 

 

Here are the winged figures I could find, for Darkmeer.

The Koralon are strange aliens that seen to be part human, part insect and part lizard, depending on the unit.

And everyone needs some winged flying armor.

 

I also wasn't sure if you could see the two boxes in the back from the original pics.  So I took some pics of those, but decided to put my copies of those models in front.

I've always really liked these, but decided not to keep the ones in the boxes.  Considering I primed the ones I have well over a decade ago and still haven't painted them...

If I remember correctly, the body pieces are resin, and the legs and other bits are metal. Feet might be resin as well now that I think about it.

Going to go paint now.  I have a pair of squads and a few solos to paint...  All the wings look amazing and wow... just wow.   

 

The Bipedal robot (Korvus?) is freaking amazing.  I've never seen anything like it. 

 

The Tiger APC... wow.  This would be fun to do in a "not-mechwarrior" universe.

I look to everyone in the WIPs and Show off.  The vast majority of them exceed my skill level by... a lot.  I appreciate the compliment, but I am FAR from great.  I do better at judgement than painting...  Y'know, the lake of fire and such :devil:

 

I've got some intergalactics set up on their 30mm bases, some greenstuff curing over the integral bases, and...  I'm seriously considering a diorama, which would be a first.

I first started reading this thread because contests are cool.

 

Then I saw the treasure trove and went  :blink: .

 

And I don't even (currently) have much use for sci-fi minis!!  :lol:

 

I wasn't sure I was going to enter, but then I got an IDEA.

 

It was an idea I had quite some time ago, but abandoned due to my painting skills not being up to it. Now, though, I think I could pull it off. I'll have to practice my straight lines quite a bit, and study circuit boards in-depth. That's all I'm gonna say for now.  :ph34r:

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

I just realized, I have a Ral Partha mech dragon. If I don't paint him for this I deserve to have him bite off my toes!

It's great to see everyone so inspired!

You have no idea how relieved I am.  I was half convinced everyone would just go "Old sci-fi crap...boring."

In which case all these lovely figures would have eventually made it to the trade in table at ReaperCon (I WILL make it down there...eventually).

All this enthusiasm gives me hope that some of these will actually see paint, while I'm sure others will get happy homes in the "must have, might paint" boxes of others.

      I put two entries into the recent Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. This first one didn't get many votes, which doesn't surprise me as I think not too many people knew what it was and it was on the weirder side. Plus the paint job itself was kind of bland.  But I like the idea of it because of what it is. It is a tikbalang - a malevolent, mythical Filipino creature that leads travelers astray or plays tricks on them. It has a horse's head, a bony body, and long, disproportioned limbs.
       
      I used these minis to make it.  The wendigo's head was chopped off.  Then I took the head of the Silverhorn, removed the horn and did some filing and sculpting to get it to join properly to the body of the wendigo. Very minimal green stuff use outside of filling seams; I filled in the wendigo's hooves, which were cloven, and rebuilt a bit of the mane so it joined smoothly with the rest of the body. 
       

       
      And I saved the body of the unicorn.  At some point I'll have to convert it into a centaur!

      Haven't post anything here for so long...
       
      I'm not really following any color scheme here, since I am not familiar with the lore of CAV at all (I'm more interested in the game).
       
      Also I wish I learnt a bit more about painting technique for glowing effect before painting the windows...

      Can't believe I missed this one until now.  I didn't have a printer during their previous projects, but I'm definitely in on this one.  Less than 48 hours to go.  Link added.

      Just noticed this KS was posted here. Only 53 hours left....

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wowbuildings/wowbuildings-further-space-adventures-3d-print-stl/description
       
      Here we are folks, WOWBuildings is expanding further into space, with the infrastructure now for several types of scenarios, this KS will be a mix of vehicles and Buildings so you will have an even bigger range of choices for your tabletops. all will come in STL format and cuts will be made where needed so boot up those 3D printers once again and jump on board for what hopefully will be a great sack full of goodies to enjoy.
      I am adding a couple of special adds that are for personal print use only as a little treat for you top end backers, all files will be initially 28mm scaled (but slightly over scaled to allow for GW sized figures) and optimized for 15-32mm scales so hopefully something for all.
      Again human based faction designs for this KS with other races in the pipeline if all goes well, so hello again and as usual keep the feedback coming and if you want anything specific added then just ask, if it can be done it will be so
      Stretch Goals as you see will start at £1000, and £500, but this time i am toying with adding some £250 jump points too here and there to add to the fun.
      I have tried to keep the pledge level prices as low as i can as well including the licence which is an absolute bargain price for this KS as a thank you for continued support and to help with those after Xmas blues.
      £10 Road Builder
      £30 Asteroid Miner
      £40 Planet Settler
