5th 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 2017 is eligible
-- figures that have won a statue level award as a ReaperCon entry are ineligible.  This includes a Sophie, Golden Maelee, etc.
-- the deadline for entries is Dec 31, 2017 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  
 
If there are fewer than 8 entries in any category, only 1st prize and the random prize will be awarded. 
 
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+) or busts that 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 by donations near the end of the contest.

At the moment, I've got some non-Reaper huge minis on the table, but I don't have any proper Reaper huge minis this time.

 

I haven't sat out a year before, so I might just end up entering the non-Reaper category this year.

Ooooooh...I just realized that after I've finished Ma'al drakar, I can enter him here. :D

 

...Also, I just measured my Mini Ma'al (Bones hydra), and I didn't even realize it before but he fits into the 100+ mm category. Cool! 

 

Huzzah!

I know it's a long distance run but since we're halfway there, I thought it was a good idea to revive the flame. Keep the pace, hold the race.

      This is just straight up sad from every angle.
       
      The reason it gets my attention is that many of us have visited this location. This happened on the parking lot attached to the venue ReaperCon used two years running.
       
      It may have spilled out of a high-school party held in that same event Center. (That tidbit was in the TV news this evening.)
       
       
      (Btw, The URL title/headline was not as accurate as it could have been but I guess that is an artifact of early less than accurate reporting. Woman is not so accurate: Amya Alane Batie was just 16.)

      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!
