The =L=eague of Extraordinary Riveters
Terrain Competition:Round 8.
Accommodation


Welcome to the 8th round of the League of Extraordinary Riveters Terrain Competition.

This competition is open to anyone who wishes to have a go.

This rounds theme is Accommodation. The idea being that all armies must bed down at some point and be it a tent or a small tarp thrown over a ruin up to a full barracks or bastion just about every army must rest at some point. And they may set up perimeter defences, and gun emplacements.
The point being it can be anything from a sniper in a cave to full army base, your imagination is the limit. Oh and size does not matter, all will be judged on their own merits.

Rules:.
1: Talk about fight club, sorry, mean the Competition. Tell everyone.
2: Size does not matter. Size is totally up to you. As small or as big as you like. It is suggested that time frame is an issue (see rule 3) so if you go too big you might not finish in time.
3: Running time. The competition starts at the stroke of midnight on the New Year. And the finish date is Midnight on the 28th February 2014. It would be preferred not to have to extend this, however it will not be ruled out at this stage.
4: Game system. There are no restrictions. Any and all are welcome. From fantasy to any scale you wish all are welcome. Indeed it does not have to be usable in game, dioramas are welcome.
5: Materials. As long as you start out with unfinished models, the world is your mollusc. Part painted is ok, but will be taken into account during judging. Kits are allowed, but please bear in mind that the judging allows for inventive material use and scratch building, and points maybe unavailable to a pure kit build.
6: Final Entry: A complete model, painted in full and pictured in as good a manner as possible with all around shots and small description please.
7: Most important rule of all, THE RULE OF COOL, applies to all.

Judging:.
Criteria: Points up to the stated amount will be awarded in the following criteria.
Modelling: Total 35 points available..
10 points Tidy Modelling. No mould lines, nice crisp edges, no silly gaps.
10 points Design. Well laid out and possibly usable in game will earn points here. Extraordinary use of Rivets would gain extra here.
10 points Materials. More points given for scratch building as opposed to a kit. Recycling scrap material will be looked on very favourably.
5 points WOW factor. Blow our minds and get a few extra points.
Painting: Total 40 points available..
5 points Neatness. Nice crisp paintwork, no silly mistakes. Not to be mistaken here, weathering and effects are obviously welcome and indeed encouraged. (see below.) This is for painting between the lines properly.
10 points Effects. Points awarded for special effects use, including OSL, Weathering etc.
10 points Technique. Points for shading, blending and good solid paintwork available.
10 points Colour. Give us a dull paint job and expect no points here. Appropriate colour schemes will be awarded points and good use of colour will be awarded. (yes beige is a colour too)
5 points WOW factor. Again blow our minds and get some extra points.

Interpretation: Total 10 points available..
10 points Good representation of the theme.

Judges Rule of Cool Special Award:.
Total of 15 points available.
Totally at the judges discretion, rule of cool being the biggest factor here. If we like what we see, even if it’s got a bad paint job, or badly stuck together, it can still earn points for just being cool.

Prizes:.
1st prize. The greatest prize of all….League Membership.
And Just to bulk it out, (and I hope this doesn’t put you off.) Camkierhi will custom build a vehicle/terrain piece of your choice for you to paint up.
2nd prize. Camkierhi special supply drop. A parcel of materials for you to build further delights for us to ogle over.
3rd prize. Kudos only at being placed, consider yourself lucky.

Special Effort Prize.
To be awarded by popular vote for best effort, all considered.
Pile of materials to help you further improve your skills.[/size]

whut? I am joining this as the first one... and this almost four hours later when it was first started? I think this one needs some more promotion^^...

I like that theme a lot! I need to make some serious thinking for this one... you already pointed out some very good ideas...some way too good to refuse... hmmm... will probably take around half a week till I finally can show some physical means on how I interpret this comps theme...

stay tuned....(I need to finish for once an entry to the competition...all the last ones are still on my shelf of shame...

but advertisement is coming up right now^^...

cheers, vik

Hmn, I think I'm game for the modelling side, but I do rather like paint up rather dirty looking models (ah wait that's an advantage right?).

I... may have an idea already. Though I'm judging its applicability to the brief. Whether I can stop myself from beginning it before the start date is up in the air. Are you expecting us to keep a log of our work or just to post the results at the end?

By the time I finished reading this, I had more ideas in my head than I could ever build in a life time.
But I think I've got one, I just hope I can find the time to build it .

You've chosen a great subject for this comp, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Very interesting subject, lots of possibilities in this, will be doing some thinking over the next few days.

(And the comp being hosted and judged by Camkierhi means he can not win this one as well, which might actually give the rest a chance!)

Cheers.

Not where I should be

Thank you one and all so far for responding to the call.

It is now confirmed, an additional 2 Judges are duely elected. Masters Ruglud and Inmygraven have volunteered to assist me.

Please be a little patient with me as I have never run anything like this before, but I am sure everyone (especially my fellow Judges) wikll keep me straight.

I will endeavor to start the list of competitors tonight.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Ok added names to OP, please bear in mind nothing is set in concrete, this is meant to be fun after all.

And Dave was correct-ish. Last day of February 2014 at midnight GMT is closing date. Judging will be ASAP after that.

Please feel free to post WIP shots and to bandy ideas around on this thread, we would however ask you to refrain from posting final shot here, (think Skalk had that one right).

Good luck to all and please tell your friends.

That's a long time considering my modelling rate. ...Though then again, it could just be an excuse to bother my butt to paint something half decently. =P

Oh, and to confirm, I haven't started anything yet. Despite my chosen idea tying in with something I proposed in my blog recently, I haven't actually begun any terrain for that yet. So... shuddit.

I'll be in the of nowhere with not but trees and cows surrounding me. Saying that, you now fully expect me to produce something made from those two things (and rivets too mind you).

Oh and I would like to say, the start time is more for Judges to finalise rules and alert as many people as possible, and letting people have time to decide on an idea, than stopping someone collecting up a few bits toward there entry, complete a model before the start date and we might have to disqualify that model mind you.

My New Year's been relocated, so unfortunately I'll have to make do with empty beer bottles and crisp bags. Sorry about that.

Theophony stick your name down anyway. I mean you've no compulsion to finish anything, but you may as well not rule yourself out. Two months is a long time in which to make a tent with a sleeping guardsman in it (whilst a squig tiger looms over him, a ready wrapped meal...).

The big problem is I'm still stuck in the dulldrums here. I've tried everything to get my mojo back, but I'm afraid right now I'm stuck. I'm going to try and paint some king of war stuff and hope that inspiration strikes me. But my completion record is bad enough with just tossing my name in on each one.
