GB 72

Post by Nappen » Sat Apr 02, 2016 12:28 am

Welcome to Group Build Number 72


This month's theme: Sprues

Yes, we are finally going to do it. Get out the old sprues and make something that includes them!


If anyone has any questions; this is the place to ask!

Rules: PLEASE READ

1) Those who participate are expected to post progres s reports of their build under their own topic heading (i.e. GBXIX:Blue’s Big Hill).
-Please format it like this. Place ‘GBXVIII:’ in the beginning of your subjects.
-Once completed you MUST edit the topics title to include the word “complete”. (i.e. GBXV:Blue’s Big Hill-Complete) This is done by editing the original posts subject.-Once completed I will usually choose 2 of the completed pictures from every build to be added to the voting thread, but the number of entries may enable more, or require less

2) Please don't post pictures of a piece of terrain that you have already built. The idea of this build is to make something new. Therefore you must post at least 2 pictures, one being a work in progress, one being a finished product. Play fair, don't cheat!

3) Entries must be completed by the deadline in order to qualify.

4) You can enter multiple times.
-please do a separate thread for each entry.

5) All participants that complete will get a campaign ribbon added to their sig.
-I will keep tabs on everyone who completes and deserves a ribbon/badge until the ribbons are issued.
-Only one completion each month goes towards ribbons, ie three completions in a month gets one ribbon, not three.

6) Builds must be painted to be eligible for voting.

7) HAVE FUN!
The build begins Now and finishes 6/31/16 11:59 PM CET. With voting the first week in June.


Follow-up thoughts:
It is recommended that you hold off on making a thread until you have some thing to show in it. (You can always do a sketch and post a picture of that)
Take some pictures of your build that you feel really show it off the best. It always helps to have a mini next to it for scale also.

hmmm...

if you're making something for models (like a warlitter for instance) is it technically terrain? Just curious.

Ok due to time contstraints, I may not make this one :( would anyone mind terribly if we extended it through end of June? I finally have an idea of what I want to work on, but I'm iffy I'll get it done in time :( and with the lack of other responders I thought maybe this would be a good time to extend it?

I kind of agree with Guildenstern on the extention of the GB... I have noticed a certain slowing down of builds and a lack of participants in the competitions lately... I'd love to participate and even have a couple of ideas, but time is a something I don't have this month.

Thanks for the extension. I will be able to complete an entry this time. The monthly deadlines just seem to come around too quickly for me.

Where is everyone?! I lost my motivation to continue with the build like... mid-month. I did some more, but the lack of other participants demotivates me...
Are we calling it a dud and move on?
