Jon Q's Un-official LO Painting Contest Number 4.
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.
Congratulations to David for winning the ‘Non-Marine’ competition.
The theme of this contest is ‘Christmas’ (or whatever your winter festival happens to be).
This is because the winner from the last round got to choose the theme.Closing date; 23:59 (GMT) 3rd January 2009Originally Posted by DavidVC04
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 (as per the normal LO rules).
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 before the deadline, and if you want you can post WIPs along the way.
Hopefully, with such an amazing turnout from the last round, there should be some wonderful entries to look forward to this time, again.
1. Is it too late to enter? No it isn’t until the deadline above is reached.
2. How do I enter? Just post a link to a photo of your mini in this thread, preferably it should follow the LO rules for such things, as it is a bit of a hassle for me to resize stuff and re-host it, but I can if you don’t know how.

hmmm xmas is fun now to find out what to do...
Xmas? I have t othink of something... although there is always the solution of painting something and entering the competition without having the Christmas spirit...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Suddenly I have rippers dancing in my head....atop an evicserated santa claus.
Or maybe a guardsman with a santa-hat.
Or maybe a dozen gaunts chained up to a leman russ with a cheerful Yarrik riding atop!
