Lol and here I was think I may have a slim chance, these are the best 15mm vehicle paint jobs I have ever seen, how do people do that.
I'm just going to smash up all my minis in despair...
I'll get me coat....
Hummm....well I thought that it was only wargamers and hobbyists at home that would enter. Closer inspection of the entry rules for the comp would have been good. Had I known it was to be pro's too I would have let some our our professionals enter their own work from our brands enter as well. We will see what and who wins but my own ideas.Don't smash your miniatures lads. Be the best you can be and that is enough for anyone. After all no one is good at everything and I can barely hold a paint brush.GBSwww.15mm.co.ukwww.theionage.com
Gavin,+1Thanks for expressing these sentiments and the raising the morale of the painter who paints for fun and games. : )
I noticed these before and they still look amazing!!
Wow have seen these on the Gruntz Forums well the walking tank any how. Simply gorgeous work.
Guys, I'm getting a lot of "life is worth living anymore" here... Hope you're joking Barks!I realize that such performances are Awe inspiring and can be intimidating. I know: I've been playing with miniatures since I'm 11, I have painted one for the very first time not two weeks ago! I'm 34. The thing is they can also be inspiring: I wouldn't have painted that miniatures (a dozen of Brigade Models Power Armour covered with the simplest of base coat, wash and dry brushing) if I hadn't be drooling on all you guys miniatures! And I mean especially the ones that aren't of an unreachable Sixtine-Chapelish level.From a practical point of view? How do you prevent "professionals" to enter such a contest? Where does very good amateur stop and where does professional start? How can you be sure who's actually behind a given entry? I considered baring "pros" from entering or making two categories "pros" and "amateurs" but I haven't figured out how to implement such a measure so I didn't do it. I'm interested in practical ideas on how to organize next year's edition (through here or on firstname.lastname@example.org)I am sorry it comes as a surprise though. Especially if some people didn't submit their work because they thought they weren't allowed to. I tried to make the rules as clear as possible but keep in mind this is my first organising anything like this. Finally, before smashing your figs keep in mind there are three categories and three prizes per category!
It doesn't matter to me if "professionals" are allowed in, in the end it's all inspiration, although I have seen these 2 models before, I am still blown away and inspired by them, and the effect would have been doubled if I hadn't seen them before, prizes are nice but inspiration is better, I haven't painted anything in a couple of months because I was quite frankly, bored, this may jolt me out of that.
