8th Annual Reaper Forums Large Model Challenge, Rules and Discussion (2020)

Recommended Posts

Categories:

40-99mm wide/tall (Reaper only)
100mm+ wide/tall (Reaper only)
Diorama (Reaper Only)
Non Reaper models Busts, and Dioramas over 40mm wide/tall

 

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 2020 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, 2020 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. Figures do not have to be permanently attached to the base but a scenic base must be present.

-- 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, or dioramas that were not made by Reaper can be entered here. 

-- dioramas need to follow the same rules as for the Reaper Diorama category with at least one larger figure in the diorama and on a scenic base

-- there is no Reaper prize support for this category

-- 3rd party prize support will be determined by donations near the end of the contest.

Can anyone confirm that 77614 Skorg Ironskull is over/under 100mm? My memory is that he was over 100mm to the top of his sword, but I gave him away and can't measure him.

 

I tried using the "B" on the shop image to judge, which was about as effective as it usually is. <_<

I don't have him but I have 77591 the Frost Giant King in a similar pose who is about 80 mm from his foot to the top of his head excluding the horns. So he is probably over if you count the height of the weapon but if you're going by just the main figure, he is probably under 100mm.

Well, as the adjudicator of the contest entry threads you're the one that would have to move the post, so do you want him in 40-99 or 100+?

I looked at last year's and it looks like people put the giants in the 40-99. The 100+ had dragons, Baba Yaga's hut, Dragon Turtle and the like. So I think you're safe putting him in the 40-99.

How is everyone doing? It's been a rough couple months and could be this way for awhile. Thinking of all of my Reaper forum friends (some of you are familiar names and I think of you as my forum friends) and fellow painters and hope you and your families are handling things the best that you can and staying healthy.

I am thinking with the forced home time, maybe some of you are getting in extra hobby/paint time. Maybe we will have the best turnout for the forum contests ever this year!

Anyway, I just wanted to check in and let you guys know that we're all in this together and you have someone thinking about you! Hang in there!

At WOOF's HQ we're alright.

Hoping it stays that way.

Of the 4 of us 3 have essential jobs.

 

Hope you're okay as well.

Stay safe all!

Nice to see some new entries in some of the categories! You guys are doing great! Keep up the painting! I bet we're going to have some awesome, stiff competition this year with all of the quarantine painting going on. Stay safe and healthy and keep painting!

Nudity okay? I have the urban legends Sophie all painted up, but I'm not sure if I can throw her up here.

Thanks!

Yes, nudity is fine but please follow the forum rules and host her photos elsewhere and share a link for them to be viewed. Thank you for asking!

For the Non Reaper 40+, bust and diorama category, does the size of the bust matter? I have QUITE a few of those disney princess busts and would love to enter a few of them.

Are they 40mm+? And now I am intrigued and am going to have to see if I can find what you mean by "Disney princess busts". lol I think the main purpose of the contests are to showcase the larger minis and then busts don't have their own category so they get shuffled into the mix.

Here are the 5 available statues (busts?) of the Disney Princesses. Not sure if I painted one up, where they would fit into the contests (if they fit at all).

A small Vignette with two, interacting,  32mm figures on a 40mm base can't be entered in the Diorama category, am I right?
