Would it better to combine this with the special character one?

Would it better to combine this with the special character one?
I decided to make them seperate, as not every Special Character is a HQ Choice in 40k, and some game systems such as Infinity don't have distinct categories for models to fall into like 40Ks' FOC but still have named characters.

Also, some people may choose to use a SC figure, and only paint it, whilst a Warlord model of a persons own design would be much more unique.

However, if someone was to create a model that can be used to represent a Special Character, but also a "Pick-&-Choose" Warlord, they can choose which contest the model goes into.

Of course, no one may enter the same model into both, and I will be keeping track of that ;)

Does fully painted include painted and/or flocked bases? Some people never worry about bases and others believe it's a requisite (and could therefore not enter the contest) so i think clarification is good.

Also i should be able to enter :D

In my mind,the model itself being painted is the minimum. While the model should still be on a base, there is no need for it to have any additional detail like flock and sand :)

Well I'm working on a warlord for a comp which has the same deadline by chance, but it won't be game legal since I've ended up turning it more into a diorama.  ::)

It'll probably be thrown out of that comp too for having more than one mini on the base, but i'm doing it anyway :p.

In short, I'm busy with that so won't be entering. :p

Good luck all!

If we can't except it into this contest, I'm sure we can put together a Diorama Contest in future, so your efforts are not in vain :)

My backup entry is just awaiting paint, but weather is putting a halt on that :(

My primary entry is still a work in progress :P He's going to be imposing, is all I can say XD

May I enter a picture of myself in the gear of a warlord? o.O

And if not a picture of myself, can I submit a picture of a voluptuous model in warlord gear? :D

If it can be used as a legal miniature in a wargame, then yes :P

Hmmm.....

I'm afraid we can't except entries with partial or total use of organic material.

I need to finish the last touches on O'Vorcah and give him a photoshoot.

Unfortunately my own entry won't be in, as my paints suck, and I doubt I'll be able to get it up to a decent standard.

Looks nice :D but normally you PM Narric your submission and then he uploads them all in a new thread where everyone is anonymous :D

And dang, only 7 days left! Really need to finish up my submissions....

Oops. Ah well, I've been posting him in my thread anyway, I didn't realise that it was PM-only to enter. I really should read more...

Don't worry too much about posting your entry :P I didn't see it, and I'm sure Thantos edited your post before anyone else did :)

SO I've stuck a potential entry up in the showcase (My Chaplain), but Can I stick him in here? He's a special Character base model, but I've converted him to be a legal HQ chaplain... Thoughts?

Pictures of your nice paintjob can be PMed to Narric, Coffee Grunt ;) Then they are all revealed at once in dramatic fashion

Dudes, the number of entries I've had in the past few hours and days is great. I may not have replied personally, but I do see each entry, I love them all, and I've made sure each one is saved and the Entrants noted correctly.

I wish I had had some sort of response from the Miniatures companies, as I feel you guys really do need a bigger prize. Not that the Second Sphere dice aren't great, I just feel that you guys who support the contests by entering deserve something bigger...

Personally, I was over the moon with my set of dice. They were really high quality and I pretty much use them for every dice-based game now  :)

Oh good lord, i seem to have had a colossal system failure, and all the entries have been lost. I'm seriously hoping people can resent their entries by 23:59 GMT tonight, otherwise all is lost!!!

Joking aside, it is the deadline for anymore entries to the Warlords contest. 23:59 GMT is no joke btw for you chaps going for a flash-finish :P

Hope I made it before 23:59 GMT, not really sure about the timezone differences :D not my finest work, I'll be the first to admit that, but at least it was something, and it was another painted mini for the 2014 counter! :D
