We want raw pictures here. No airburshing, no star/sunbursts no special added backgrounds or lighting effects.


A quick question about this:
Does this mean we cannot have a paper backdrop behind our minis when we take our picture? for example, a gradient blue colour sheet of paper printed and held behind a mini would be legal or not?

Wow. This sounds cool. Count me in.

I will probably enter an Ironclad Dread.

BTW, Thanks Kurgan the Lurker, Brother Argos, the entire group of Admins, and the sponsors for putting on this contest.

"We must thank the Emperor, I suppose, that it was Roboute Guilliman's gene-line that proved the most stable and prevalent. Had it been that of Russ or the Khan, for example, we would have found ourselves defended by feral savages barely distinguishable from our foes. At least the Ultramarines successors understand how to conduct war in a civilized fashion." - pg. 25, Codex Supplement: Ultramarines

In the picture samples I believe they used a towel or something. So maybe use on too? Or a simple white backdrop so as to not distract from the mini itself?

I'm considering entering... I know that I can't compete with some of the better painters around here but I don't mind. I look forward to seeing the submissions!
Don't put your trust in revolutions. They always come around again. That's why they're called revolutions. People die, and nothing changes.

How do they rise up?

Just a thought - how many entries can one member enter into the competition? Is it one per person?

One entry per category per person.

A good background is important for the picture -- but it shouldn't be something you add into the picture. So whether you are using a shirt, sheet, towel, piece of paper as your background is fine (in the example pics I used a pillow cover and shirt). It's after the shot is taken stuff that we are talking about. You shouldn't be manipulating the picture to make it look better in the hopes of moving farther into the contest.

If you want good pictures then make sure you have your camera set up properly. Lighting, white balance and so on. Most decent cameras should have a multi shot option that take several pictures and allow you to select the best one for keeping.

Well, might as well participate as this will give me a chance to really work on that custom Abaddon I'm doing as a showpiece for my army... Hopefully I can improve on my painting and learn new techniques.

Once our great father Horus led us to the gates of Terra! There he was slain by the false emperor and his weakling primarchs. Now they worship that rotting carcass as a god! Horus might have been weak and foolish, but we, his Sons, still live on! Abaddon leads us to greater glory with each of his crusades and eventually we will show our brothers that true power demands sacrifices! No-one will stand in our way, be it the lapdogs of the weakling Imperium or our brethren in the other legions! We are the Black Legion! WE ARE RETURNED! -Neigorath the Thrice Accursed, captain of the 8th Grand Company of the former Luna Wolves during the battle for Cadian Gate.

In the Squad entry, suppose I do a Space Wolves Grey Hunters squad, since it is legal to have a member of the Wolfguard as part of the squad, would I be able to include him in the entry, or can I only have the Grey Hunters?

i have a question regarding the squad category.

it says one picture of the squad. but can the squad be bigger then 5 man? the picture only shows 5 man. if the unit is bigger can we show multiple pictures? a head on shot doesent show much detials, and only 1 shot for 5 man tends to cause the picture to be made from a large distance in order to get them all in, so would it be ok to make 2 shots showing 5 in each for example?

I'm thinking Inquisitors from Codex; Daemonhunter and Witchhunters, in power armour?

Seems like they should qualify for the contest in all possible ways, except for not being on the list. (hope I didn't just misread it though)

Thanks for hosting the contest.

Obliteraters are listed as acceptable in the Squads category, but the biggest game-legal unit is three while the squads category is for five-plus models. Could you clarify this please?

This competition is a great idea - I'm looking forwarward to seeing the entries. There's sure to be a bucketload of awesome stuff!
