Can we publicly drag the cheaters out into the open so we can make fun of them?

Please?

It's all Matthew's fault, you know? If he had lousy / non-existent prizes people wouldn't be motivated to cheat... ;)

Just kidding - it must take a strange set of morals to even contemplate that.

<soapbox>
I have been very impressed by the general attitude / politeness even of the typical WH/WH40K/LotR player. It's usually drummed into your head by the guys at the local GW store. I, being "old as the hills", appreciate young people who have manners and don't give me a headache with their constant whining (you all know the types). I took an academy class where the next youngest person was 15 (I'm 50). The youngest was 8. I've never been with a group of "kids" as well behaved as this bunch. I was so impressed, I gave each of them a copy of Army Builder (with their parent's approval, of course). I just assumed honesty / integrity went with the package...
</soapbox>

Still think it's Matt's fault - - -

It is really sad that it has come to this. I guess I will have to go dig out my camra again and find some paper.

I'll upload a piece of paper about Legolas A.S.A.P.

About that,

That's just sick, it's not nice at all to say something like that.
I know that people who just started painting enter into this compo.
But it's always good to see creativity around the forums, and it's not good to drill that dream into the ground by saying that they have not a chance of winning.
Kind Regards,

I have to agree with lotrmaster at this but on the other hand, everyone is able to see wether a miniature of a 5 year display painter is better than a miniature of a beginner.
But its an open competition and everyone is allowed to enter. The judges said it wouldnt be a problem since they would sort it out anyway so I wouldnt worry to much about it and just wait;)

You only need a picture of your mini with the paper, you don't have to be in it yourself.

It should look something like this:

Oh wait... that's the wrong one...

Sorry, like this:

And that is why Kharn was cut from the original cast of Puttin' on the Ritz.

As long as we can tell that it is the same mini it won't matter.

Wow, Matt, I hope you disqualify all of Antimatter's entries from the contest, because they are all fake and bought off ebay or something. Just check the threads. Also check Joe's post on this thread
