Thanks for the suggestion Fango, I had forgotten that part in the rules. Hopefully this is coming in on time, since I didn't find your message until I got up this morning. But I just sent you a second PM with group shots of the pieces along with written descriptions of the process. If either the first PM with the huge number of pics of the pieces, or the second one didn't make it through to you, please let me know.

Not making the comp of course, but I'm still working on mine anyway It's turning out to be a fun piece



Grats to everyone who finished and if you've not, like me, keep working! It's still useful terrain and we'd love to see it. I know I would.

Ok everyone, the Public Voting thread is up HERE. Head on over and Vote!!!

@All of the Finalists - Syro_ was the only one to provide me with details and descriptions of how their build went, what materials they used, etc. If you want to provide me with something to append to the voting thread, send it over ASAP. Might be a good idea to send a shot of the original piece you were replicating as well, so those not familiar with the terrain/board game, can compare/see the inspiration. If you have other photos or angles that you think might help (I just posted all of the photos everyone sent me) go ahead and send them my way and I'll add them to the thread as well.

Good Luck!

Apologies for my absence this round. I have been following along, but not had the time to really get involved.

Well done all that did get involved and especially those that finished.

4 very unique approaches/results to the theme, each with their own area(s) to shine. You have a tough decision, Fango.


The army- ~2295 points (built).

Ok everyone, apologies for the delay on getting this announcement up...again, still slammed with work and RL!

Expert guest judge 'inmygravenimage' and I toiled long and hard to pick the winner in this contest. All entries were fantastic, and even the public vote was very close!

1st Place! - Syro_ - This project was incredibly ambitious and full of loads of fine detail. A fantastic mixture of interesting processes, innovative use of a range of materials, and hand sculpting of texture and details. Another aspect that pushed this project to the top was how well documented the process was...including fairly consistent updates in this thread. Graven and I both agree this project was really well conceived! Congrats Syro_!

2nd Place - Apollinaire - Being a die-hard fan of Necromunda, and the original box set card terrain in particular, it was hard for me to not play favorites with this project. Graven and I both agree, this build is really fun and ambitious with lots of great details and loads of RIVETS! The only thing that held this one back from top honors was that it seems a bit flimsy and home-made in places...that being said, as Apollinaire's first terrain competition entry, he made a solid build with loads of character and really captured the spirit and design language of the pieces that inspired it. I think we'll see more great things coming from this contestant in the future as his techniques and precision improve! Great job Apollinaire!

3rd (Tie) - Z-ray & Ozymandias. - Both of these were fairly simple, and expertly built...but both Graven and I agree, compared to the other entries, they were perhaps a bit too simple. I know I'm not the only one who would have really liked to see Z-Ray's Underhive wall sections in their final/completed form, and don't think we'll be disappointed when we finally do. Ozy recreated that ruined building section in record time and (as he is part of my local gaming group) it was great to see him participate in this competition. I think it also has to be mentioned that he recieved only one fewer vote than the winner in the public voting thread! I can't wait to see Ozy's Mordheim/Malifaux terrain collection grow. Congrats guys and great job on these builds!

Ok, Syro_, You are now officially a member of the League of Extraordinary Riveters, and I proudly hand the torch over to you to get the next competition rolling! PM me so we can discuss the theme of the terrain prize I'll be building and sending your way.

Finally, Thanks to all of the contestants, including the ones that didnt make it to the finish line...I've participated in and NOT completed more terrain competitions than I have finished...so I certainly understand when RL takes over and saps even more of the limited hobby time we are normally afforded.

Great job all round gang, lots of good stuff here. Really looking forward to what the next round brings (although I've just sworn of terrain building for a bit, so convince me otherwise)!

Woohoo! That is super exciting, and thanks for the congratulations everyone! I'm very excited to have won, and proud to be a member of the league now. These competitions have really pushed me to put much more detail into my work, and have pieces I'm very proud of. Also, great work to everyone I was competing against, very good and interesting pieces all around.

Luckily ever since I first joined these competitions I've been mulling over ideas of what I would have the theme be, if I was able to win. So I already have a (hopefully good) idea, and will start working on putting up the next competition post immediately. I hope to see lots of people joining up and inspiring each other.

P.S. If a current league member could send me the code to be able to fly the LoER colors in my sig, I'd appreciate it. I know I've seen it posted how to do it multiple times, but I'm currently having trouble finding it.
