Free For All
This theme is, Free for all. Anything goes
People entering have one month in which to design and convert 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, The winner will get a banner for their sig if they want it
1.) Models from any manufacturer are allowed.
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 converted 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.
9.) There should be little paint on the model. It must be possible to clearly see any modelling putty, or cuts made,.
The closing date is March 7th at 23:59 GMT
So just post your completed entries here before the deadline.
It is possible to earn extra votes. If you include a tutorial then I will add 1 vote onto you total, and if it's unpainted, another vote will be added.
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.
3. The Prize?! Get to choose the next theme! You will also get a unique banner for your sig should you want it. For all the other participants, your prize is experience and fun.
Harrr! Count me in!
Edit: I think i'll do a Vince Ray style skeleton on surfboard hairclip, for my sister who likes Vince Ray, and Retro rocker chic style (She does her hair in a sort of "cone" like a wave on top of her head. The difficulty will be attaching the hairclip to the board, and painting it)

Sounds like it could be fun. I have never done a conversion for a contest, only painting. I'll have to think of an entry though.
Hmmm, I wonder...
I have this idea that's been in my head for a while... And seeing as this is a free-for-all, and we have until March... Perhaps I should give it a try?
We'll see. I've always thought about entering one of these, but just... haven't. So maybe now is my time!
Or at least, the 7th of March may be my time, if I'm not just rambling and actually decide to get started.
I think I could try a Tyrannofex, stompity-stomp. Now I must hunt for, buy parts.
So I know this is normally the quiet time where everyone goes away and works on their projects, but I just thought I'd pop in and ask... How is everyone going?
Personally, I'm satisfied with my progress. I managed a bit of tricky assembly today, and although I still need to go back to it and green stuff a few bits up that particular sub-assembly is more or less done. I still have some tricky bits to do, and realised today I might want some magnets to assemble this thing (and I have none, so would have to order them) but otherwise... I may be on track to get this finished.
How is everyone else going? Any friendly encouragement needed?
I'm doing ok I think. I should get it done on time. Mines a secret though
I got all my bits, however I've realised a problem: I was going to do servo skull counts as scouts (for a adeptus mechanicus force) but as they're all gonna be on flying bases, cut down and glued to be the right height, i will have to paint them before final assembly (I can't spray undercoat avoiding a flying base stem, and would rather paint them.)
May have to think of something else... scenic?
