Feburary 2015: Declare your Sideshow Challenges!

Post by Epic Duck Mike » Mon Feb 02, 2015 10:16 am

Painting Deathmatch: The Sideshow

Challenge another Miniature Painter to Death or Glory in the Painting Deathmatch! Pick a miniature you'd like to paint, find an opponent with the same miniature, and have yourself a paint-off!

These Sideshow challenges are fun events to help you push your painting skills to their limits and beyond, and have some fun with other miniature painters in our community. It's actually quite unlikely that you'll be killed or injured as a result of participating, whereas it's quite possible that you'll improve your painting somehow.

The Rules of Deathmatch Sideshows

1 - You have until the 14th of the month to form your Challenges; simply post in this thread with the models you're interested in painting. You can call out another painter directly if you'd like - it's all for fun, be as lax or aggressive as you want. While typically challenges should involve the same model, it's perfectly alright to challenge on a category instead (ie "Power Armour" if you have people who want to paint Space Marines, CSM, and Khador Man-o-Wars, or "Giant Creature" if you have people painting Helldrakes and Dragons, etc).

2 - Photos of models painted for Sideshow Challenges must be posted by the predetermined Deadline. This will typically be the 26th of the month at 9AM EST, though it may be extended if the 26th falls on a Weekend or a Holiday. Headline challenge deadlines may be extended under special circumstances if both participants and the responsible moderator agree. Voting threads will then be posted for a 5-7 day voting period.

3 - Conversion is allowed, but should not be the focus of your miniature. This is a painting competition after all - check out Mini of the Month of your interests are more conversion-leaning!

4 - WIP pictures are not required, but you are more than welcome to post them.

5 - Models should be completely painted, including a finished base (painted or otherwise covered with basing materials).


Picture Submission Rules

1 - On or around the 14th, a Picture Submission Thread will open. Post a maximum of 3 photos of your miniature in this thread, along with the title of your challenge (ie "Mike vs Dez: Chaos Space Marine"). If you absolutely feel that more than 3 photos are necessary, create a collage of your images and submit it as a single picture.

The Perks of Deathmatch

1 - Forum Ribbon - There will be a Forum Ribbon awarded to anyone winning a Main Event. Participaters of the DM will receive a silver ribbon, so do the headliner participaters.

2 - Bragging Rights - I don't need to explain this one ;)

Judging

Judging will be done via an open poll on the forums over a 3 day period, typically from the 26th to the 29th of each month.

That's it!

I am painting up some Renegade Guardsman, which could fall under the Astra Militarum. I'd be happy to do 1 Guardsman type of challenge...or even a weapons team. If you have other single model suggestions, let me know.

Also, note that because February is a short month, the Submission Thread will be going up early, and we may carry voting over into March if necessary. You'll still have until the 26th to complete your challenges if needed.

Dammit people, start making and accepting challenges, or I'm just going to start locking you in cage matches with 2nd Edition lead minis, and 2nd Edition paint ;)
