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.
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..

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.

      Hey all! Got this resin fig at ReaperCon 2016 and decided to base him using a Basius basing pad with some swampy/murky/creepy terrain. 
      My goal was to emphasize that this disciple is unconcerned with his cleanliness, and is a deadly foe.
      I managed to work up a color scheme that speaks to faded Christmas colors which led me into an adventure idea wherein this summoner is bringing a twisted version of Krampus into existence for the holidays

      It's safe to say I had an amazing year.  I learned so much in 2016 and hopefully I can learn more in 2017 and continue to improve.  These pictures are in no particular order.
      Edit:  Oops, I just noticed that 11 of the first 18 minis I actually painted this year, in January.  This is why I should have put this post together sooner.  Oh well.  Less those minis, the rest I painted in 2016.

      A wee bit late, here is a visual roundup of the miniatures I painted in the 2016 calendar year.
      I got off to a rapid start by attacking my Shelf of Shame in January, finishing 39 half-started figures by the end of the month: The whole Scooby Gang, female magicians and pirates, a small squad of driders, a few good monsters, some utterly enchanting Tom Meier elves, and some useful fantasy, modern, and sci fi characters.
      Things slowed down considerably after that, but I got some good work done in several pulses.
      Chaoswolf's lovely Box O' Goodwill project dropped some old school lead in my lap, and I enjoyed painting those sometimes chunky, sometimes elfin vintage figures.  Summer brought some useful dungeon wall and floor terrain, which I hoped could be used for figure photography as well as gameplay.  Some Doctor Who miniatures new and old were next, and the year's painting finished up with some cowboys converted to Githyanki and one magnificent and three slightly ridiculous vampires.

      Picked this one up at Reapercon 2016.
      She had that New Orleans Witch feel... :)
