    Check out the last winners here: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ll-honour.html (LO Contest Hall of Honour) (LO Contest Hall of Honour)

    The theme of this contest is "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the fight in the dog"
    This is because the winner from the last round got to choose the theme.

    The criteria could be that the models have to be smaller than human equivalents and the maximum number that can fit on a swarm base.
    Any queries about that, do post and I’ll try and help. Closing date; 23:59 (GMT) 28th May 2011

    That's Greenwich Mean Time. So if you live in America, then you'll need to account for an 8-12 hour time difference!

    Contest rules.

    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 (more or less) 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, there should be some wonderful entries to look forward to this time, as always.

    FAQ: 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!? How does that work? You tell me and I post it up, but it should be inclusive and interesting. For all the other participants, your prize is experience and fun.

    I was thinking of basing one on Spites from Wood Elves army book. Technically these are an upgrade not a unit, would it still be eligible to enter?

    Taken from the first post:

    How about a theme based around the unsung almost-heroes of the warhammer world. I think a theme based creatures small in stature like goblins, gnoblars, grots, dwarfs, hobbits, rats, scarabs, small drones, swarms etc.

    I would think the use the of the words "small drones" implies a yes to your question. After all, this is a painting comp - not a gaming one. Gaming legality shouldn't be an issue here....

    Am I right?

    You would be correct. Army legality issues do not apply to this painting contest, you only have to look at the previous winners to see that this is true. So, sprites would indeed be allowed.

    Well... I have been bad in this. Sorry about this, and unfortunately this has had little interest. Now, I could award Soulshade the award by default (and thanks for the effort) but I feel it wouldn't be a very awarding win. So, I was going to redo the contest with a theme by myself. Which hopefully people will like a bit more.
