KotH July - Main

Post by A Luna » Tue Jan 24, 2012 8:19 am

Hello everyone and welcome! This is the King-of-the-Hill-SPECIAL-Deathmatch.

http://www.miniwargaming.com/content/pa ... -king-hill
^ First KotH MWG main forum advertisement.

http://www.miniwargaming.com/forum/view ... 78&t=63288
^ First KotH.

http://www.miniwargaming.com/forum/view ... 78&t=70258
^ First KotH results.

What's this?!
This is basically an all VS all. Rules will be stated at the bottom. Over time, a group of painters will come forward who will all paint up the same model, no conversions. Basing is allowed in any way. Painting is up to the painter, as long as you show everyone your best. The system's easy. Throw all miniatures (anonymously) on a big pile and let the judges pick out the winners. Critism/harsh feedback is optional. Again, the miniature can't be converted. This is an anonymous competition, read the F.A.Q.'s about what is allowed. People who entered will get HARSH feedback/critism on their miniatures. They will really get torn apart. If you can't handle that, please don't enter.

How to enter
To enter the KOTH-DM, you have to sign up in this topic AND paint the same miniature as everybody else. If you sign up, please do finish.

When?
The KOTH DM deadline for submitting pictures of your miniature is July 31 (wish me happy b-day that day). This is to make sure everyone has enough time to get their hands on a miniature and have enough time to paint them up.
This brings us to......

What miniature?

For all our Northern/Southern America friends.

Judges
I have the following judges stand-by already because of their fair-share (and because of a keen eye I have, because let's face it, I'm amazing).

- Yurii (Skeeve); Golden Demon judge. Like the first KotH, he'll eat your miniature.
- Blue; You better paint your miniature blue. (lol get it.. imma funny joke!)


YOU CAN BE A JUDGE
Message me. Let me know why you want to become a judge. I will test you in a certain way (whatever I can come up with) and see if you have what it takes.

Pointers
Got some tips for you people, if you not yet know:

Pictures:
1. Make sure your miniature/background don't interfere (black background while you have dark miniature, etc). Also, no noisy background (painting station/other miniatures/room/outside). Go for a plain color or gradient. Usually the best. Also, be careful with photoshopping nice backgrounds since they can distract a lot too.
Example pic:
Good
Bad (I went for a different view there, not for the best pics of a miniature but for the best atmosphere (evil))
Even worse

2. Pictures should be at least 30-40% miniature and 60% background. That means that 40% or 30% of the miniature should occupy the entire picture taken:
Pretty good
Bad

3. Bright & sharp pictures. If you don't want a glossy effect on the miniature because of a light put close to the source; put a piece of blank paper in front of the lamp. This filters the light so you get this:
Good
Instead of this:
Bad

I don't have enough time and concentration to participate at the moment but I wouldn't mind helping out with judging this time around.

Should I paint some minis up in the next month or two to the best of my abilities and let you choose if I should enter? I ask this as I'm not sure if I'm good enough and I've only just started pushing my painting recently.
Also if I enter (probably a big if) I may not be able to get the model but I will say in advance if I cannot get one.

Is this one running the same system for nominations as the last KotH?

I'm interested in participating - what do I need to do?

You have to solve this riddle:

I spy with my little eye,
Hairless people who are very sly,
colored with strange dye,
one who waited forever, dog of Fry.

So you wish to enter the maze,
If you use the technique glaze,
You might be worthy to face Arbok's glaze.
Sadly, Arbok can also use haze.

To achieve participation in this match,
you need to capture a colorful batch.
The creatures in your paint may not hatch,
Won't happen if you downloaded the latest patch.

a silhouette in a shadow and movement in a dream,
Sometimes reminded by visions in a gleam.
Still something is missing, much has been destroyed,
Memories far away, long lost in the void.
Of something that happened long in the past,
On the doorstep of our soul, who entered last?

----------------

Good luck Lupusj!
