November Painting Contest/Giveaway

November Painting Contest/Giveaway

This blog has grown so much and so fast that I can't help but want to thank you guys.

I really enjoy writing this blog, and from what I can tell, you guys really enjoy reading it! With the holidays coming up and to celebrate the recent strides the blog has taken, I'd like to hold a reader painting contest. Over the first 3 weeks of November, send to me (either on the blog or by reddit message), your best painted 3-6 Dark Angels (or successor chapter) models. If you've got a display board, or action scene to go with them feel free to use those, but I plan to judge the models strictly on the paint and coolness factor (conversions, basing, etc) with display being tiebreaker/bonus points.

Now here's the sticker: the winner will get a copy of Space Hulk: Deathwing for PC within a few days of it coming out IF we get entries from at least a dozen different people.

So to summarize:
  • 3-6 models painted in Dark Angels or Successor Chapter colors. Alternatively, a single large model such as a Land Raider is acceptable
  • Any 40k models are fine (Forgeworld is ok, but not models specific to 30k), Characters, Vehicles, etc. but must be at least minimum-sized units (3 bikers, 5 tactical marines)
  • Must include before, process, and after pictures (3-4 pictures total is plenty)
  • All submissions must include a few lines (2 sentences to 2 paragraphs or so) explaining who these guys are and what makes them cool
  • Display boards/scenes are not necessary but may be worth bonus/tiebreaker points
  • All submissions must be in by Midnight EST Thursday, November 17th. I will announce the winner November 18th and post the winner along with runner-ups on the blog
  • The winner will receive a copy of Space Hulk: Deathwing for PC if we meet the criteria!
  • Feel free to contact me if you have questions

This is my thanks to you guys for making the blog so popular. I hope you'll continue reading and I can't wait to see your entries!
