Alright folks, here's the deal - the last fluff event didn't go over so well, because you all had to send your posts to me in a PM, and my inbox filled up a little quicker than I'd expected. This time around, we're going to run a painting event, and run it the same way as the guys over in the WoC section do theirs. Basically, you post your pictures here, in this thread, as a submission. Then, at the end of the event (November 30th seems fair? ) I'll arrange a poll for everyone to vote on the minis they liked the best. Sound alright? Really it's just a chance for you to show off your painting skills, but I will give one automatic win for every person who enters something into the contest, plus additional victories based on the results of the voting.
You don't have to paint a model specifically for this event, within 10 days, though it would be cool. If you have a favorite model in your army which you've already painted up, feel free to enter it in. Remember, just like the fluff battles, keep your criticism professional and polite, and let's all get a look at some new paint!
Ok, but be warned....my painting skills are not great, its something im not too keen on as not that good at it, should practise more at painting lol. But if its worth a point for DISORDER then Im in.. lol
I am that wolf you always hear, no matter were you are
Whoo I have internet again (works really, mine is still off!), what with moving house and all that I won't have time to paint a mini. But I will enter to get a point a for Chaos!! Soooo i'm going to submit my Manticore which I finished painting a couple of weeks ago before the move. I'll try get some better pics up when I can dig out the models from boxes!!!
Cheers, going from renting a two bed house to buying a 3 bed house, I'm proper grown up now. Mortgage and everything ( boo, hiss) but this has left me with 0 £'s to spend on warhammer. So i'll just have to paint what i've got.
On the table? it's my sons Clone Wars Cpt. Rex blaster that fires nerf like bullets. Not used by me at all. Ever.
Sorry for taking so long to get in on this. I have been painting Storm stuff for a tourney, but none of that really qualifies as representing Order and the Empire. I wanted to get my special fluff character painted, but I guess you'll have settle for my general, the Arch Lector of Altdorf. Hand made War Altar from the Chapel kit.
Honey badger don't care.
So...did the campaign die again?
Honey badger don't care.
slowly and lingeringly (is this even a word, dunno?) I think.
Unfortunately, it seems that it has. Initially, I thought that this campaign would have a much larger following than it did, and that there would be more games played. At the end of the day however, I was only getting 1 or 2 game results every week or two. The games were meant to be the mainstay of the campaign, and the side-events were something to add to the hype.
I'm not blaming the players at all. I know that a good deal of this was my fault, for not really commenting every time that I checked in, and not keeping on everyone to report new games. The initial plan of the campaign was to bring new faces to LO. The head-honchos were asking Mods what could be done to bring in more faces, and I suggested this. My plan was to get several mods involved, get some off-site advertising done, and pull a lot of people into this event. Instead, all of the suggestions just died, and this event got no support from anyone. It did pull in a few new faces, though I'm not sure if anyone stuck around for too long, and eventually it's dwindled down to just 2 or 3 people still playing and reporting, which is a shame.
This isn't even all that uncommon for LO - to have a project die off well before completion - and that in itself is discouraging. I finished one of the very few completed Arena of Death events, and that took me almost a full year. 36 contestants, paired off into teams, it was actually something which gained a lot of popularity. However, it required absolutely no input from the players, aside from the initial contribution of a character. Events like this on the internet require dedication from everyone involved, and it's too easy for people to find themselves getting burned out or sidetracked (myself included).
I will end this campaign by saying that I'm never far from LO or the users, and I will continue to support any events which will better the forum or entertain the users. If someone else would like to start some sort of community event, let me know, and I'll help out in whatever way I can. I want LO to continue to thrive as a community, despite the frequent hiccups and pitfalls that come with working with a world-wide forum base.
