This competition is open to anyone of any skill. It is designed so that people can get positive feedback from their peers in a direct way from any and all.
The theme of this contest is 'Theme-less'.
This is because it is a new comp, and because it un-official and just for fun.
I thought I'd do this because no-one else has for a while, and I got bored of painting what I'm painting currently (I've painted one tank. I've got four more and it pains me!). So I thought this would give me an excuse to paint something (and showcase it without looking like a show off (not that those that do are, it's just that I don't feel like creating a thread for just one lonely model at a time, and I'm rambling. Shut up Jon, shut up.)). I hope it gives you that excuse too.
So break out your bits boxes, your dusty special characters, those random models you picked up but don't know why, and get painting.
Closing date; 23:59 (GMT) 23rd August 2008
People entering have one month in which to design, build and paint a single based model to the theme set. Members will be expected to post their pictures which will then be placed into a thread for voting. It is done so that people can improve their skills, and try out things. And purely for fun, there is no prize or anything, just the fun of it
1.) Models from any manufacturer are allowed, as are scratch built models.
2.) There is one month to each project.
3.) One base (any size) per entry... Multiple models permanently fixed to the single base are allowed. No armies on display boards though.
4.) Models painted within the time frame are looked upon favourably. (It is of course impossible for us to check). Please use this competition to come up with a new idea.
5.) Pictures can be no wider than 700 pixels
6.) Maximum of two pictures can be posted. Single pictures of multiple views (montages) are allowed.
7.) The organisers of the competition have the right to refuse entry to any applicant if they feel it doesn't meet the criteria
8.) Voting. It is considered un-sportsmanlike to vote for yourself. You are voting on what you think is the most original, unique, clever conversion with the most groundbreaking painting techniques.
So just post your completed entries here, and if you want you can post WIPs along the way.
Good luck to one and all, and if you don't finish your model in time, please do still post your final pic as I'm sure we would all be interested in seeing it.
Thanks, and good Luck.
PS. If anyone was deciding on bringing back the official contest, I hope this doesn't get in the way, and I'm sorry if it does.
EDIT: I've already got myself egged on by posting this. I've started painting one of my Dwarfs, so sorely neglected by my recent Witch-hunter bent.

hmmmm I think i'll enter! +rep for the initiative to make a contest (I've been itching for one for quite a while). Good luck to all!
Good post Jon.
I shall sticky this, and see from the reaction, whether or not I shall get another 'official' contest going on (it's been something I've been intending to do for a bit anyway...).
I shall certainly be attempting to enter something, I've got various things on the go that could end up quite nice...
Anyway, sticky-d, and given my complete backing.
Jon, if you need any help with this bud, it's just a PM away =)

does the model we enter have to be started from scratch (bare metal/plastic), already started, but finished in the timeframe, or something that's already finished?
I've got a lot of guy to paint, sign me up.
this in December and never finished it. Would this be considered too far along to finish modelliing it and then painting it?
