4th 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 2016 is eligible
-- the deadline for entries is Dec 31, 2016 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
 
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+) but 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 near the end of the contest.

Are we talking base size or model dimensions?

 

Example: I (hypothetically speaking) paint a Reaper model that (by game rules) goes on a 120mm round base, but it only stands 99mm high x 99mm wide x 99mm long, which category does it go in? (For clarification.)

 

EDIT: Not that I am. I'm likely only entering the non-Reaper category again.

I want to say that last year we went by base size.. but I'm wondering if we should go by it's largest dimension, or base size whichever is greater..

I now have a nice stash of 54mm+ models to work from. I really enjoyed last year's challenge, so hopefully I can finish more than one for 2016! I foresee more queries from my housemates of "aren't you done with that yet?"  :upside:

I think I would suggest going by the largest dimensions of the model, since every game has different rules for bases. But also if it's that close you can probably just play it by ear and put it in whichever category seems more appropriate.

I'm glad to see this is up and running again! I'd like to try to participate this year.

 

Assuming that this is for 2016 correct? Models finished this year?

It may be a good idea to edit the original post, as it still says 2015.

Longest or tallest dimension: +1 to that.

 

I am thinking that nicely clarifies where models like the iron bull or the big land shark would wind up.

Fixed!  This is why I shouldn't post while exhausted

 

 

Can we get the 2016 entries threads pinned?

 

The 2015 ones are up there, the 2016 are slowly moving through the forum now.
