Battle Cry Painting Competition

Recommended Posts

Just putting this out there as I forgot about it until it was too late last year.

 

For those who want to give a competition a shot, Battle Cry will be held in April (at the Manchester, CT Battlestandard I assume, but they did open an Auburn, MA location last year).

 

There are several different categories, detail in the link.  There is a fee to enter $10 first fig, $5 each additional entry.  Best in Show qualifies for the Crystal Brush.  I may just go to look at the entries.

 

They haven't released the actual date yet, I just wanted to put it out there so if someone wanted to paint something for the competition, they would have time.

Hmm. I have no hope of competing or attending this one, but thanks for posting.

 

Looking at last year's winners, it's a very interesting competition given the things most painters on these boards focus on. It's not 100% true, but most of our fellow Reaperites tend toward smooth, calculated blends and clean paint. This competition, OTOH, is all about bold, intuitive highlights and heavy weathering.

 

I like it, a lot, but it's a very different aesthetic school.

Interesting...wonder if I could sneak in an overnight visit to the easterly folk for this...

I've got couch (or floor if you have an air mattress or cot) space if you are interested.  I'm about 30 minutes from the CT location (where it's been held in the past).

Tempting. I have family up in Connecticut and Massachusetts, somewhere. I see lots of GW in the previous years results and, as Sanael pointed out, a completely different style than I use. Could be a push out of the old comfort zone.

If it was about 20 months later, I'd probably be there.

 Well it's an annual contest so it should still be there 24 months later.

The store hosting it sells and plays GW and Privateer games mostly so it makes sense that their clientele paints that mostly.

Cool beans. I'll look into it when the date is announced.

 

Most likely not going to bring an 'appropriate' entry, just something I have lying around, for fun.

      So, a local store had a painting contest - entrants drew a random number from a jar, and that number equated to a Reaper Bones mini we had two weeks to paint and got to keep. I was remarkably lucky, and got the Dracolisk, by the incomparable Julie Guthrie. Since the rules said no more than 75% of the model could be obscured, I felt somewhat open ground with some stumps and some broken statues would be best.
       
      There will be two prizes - one from customer voting, and one from Staff Judging. Wish me luck!

      Neat sculpts, the next KS is going to be fun
       
      I wish Reaper's breakdown of judging criteria actually reflected how high bases score. Looking at their little percentage breakdown, you would never know that the base was so important .

      It's that time of year again.  Those of us in the US have a 3 day holiday weekend coming up (May 24-27) and I am challenging you all to join me in a massively multiplayer paint binge!   Everyone is welcome to join, even if you can only paint for one day. 
       
      The object is to finish as many figures as possible. Quantity counts over quality. All manufacturers are fair game, posting of WIPs and finished pieces is strongly encouraged. You may prep and prime figures before hand, in fact I recommend it. Get out all those new Bones,  old primed or half painted figures and get ready to finish them! 
       
      Got an army to finish, need to move some half painted terrain off your desk, want to tackle that dragon for the big figure contest? This is the time.  All manufacturers are fair game. 
       
      Prep and prime your figures now so they are all ready to go Saturday morning (or if you're taking a 4 day weekend, Friday morning). Have your camera ready to share photos.  Photos strongly encouraged! 
       
      For this holiday there is a special extra challenge: paint a figure in memory of a lost friend, pet or loved one. Anything goes. 
       
      Painting begins at 00:01 May 24 and ends 23:59 May 27, in your time zone.  
       
      Those of you who video chat are welcome to set up channels.
