It's back! This is your chance to show the rest of Dakka what you're made of!

The Rules:

1.) Abide by the spirit and guidelines of the Challenge presented.
2.) Take a WIP shot of your model before painting. Send your WIP along with your entry.
3.) Paint your model!
4.) Take another shot of the completed model and send it in to dakkapaintingchallenge@dakkadakka.com with your Dakka Handle as the photo's filename. Also be sure to include your dakka handle in the email, just in case. Oh and be sure it's in before Midnight Central (GMT-6:00) the night of the Deadline!!
5.) The day after the deadline, all the entries will be presented for all of Dakka to see! Along with this will be a poll for the community at large to pick their favorite from the bunch.
6.) Voting will last for 4 Days. At the end of the voting, the one with the most votes in the poll, Wins!!

Notes:
The model you enter can not be shown on Dakka or any other website, it's specifically for release in the Voting Poll. Models found to be posted prior to the Voting Poll will be disqualified. This does not claiming publishing rights. Once the voting is over, feel free to post your model all over the web ^_^!

Please only send one WIP shot with your entry. If you decide to send more than one final painted shot, I will pick the best of them and post it alone. You may create a collage for the model to show detail (back, front, close ups, etc.) and send it as your entry.

Administrator and Moderator entries will be marked with a "Team Dakka" watermark. Admin and Mod participants can't win prizes. But don't let that keep you from voting for them! Defeating one another is more than enough a reward...


Images:

Pics of your model may be either 1000x800 pixels or 800x1000 pixels . The voting is done blind, that way favoritism has nothing to do with who wins. No text, watermarks, or icons on the entry at all. File Names will be changed after I receive them.

The Prize:
The Winner Recieves: Dakka Bragging rights, A Dakka front page announcement of your glorious victory, the respect from your fellow modelers, and their choice of either a 12 set of the hot new Dakka Dice, or a piece of custom artwork done by GoatboyBBMA.






The Challenge
Bump in the Night!




With Halloween just around the corner, it only makes sense that it's time for me to challenge the community to create the absolute creepiest models you can think of! All of those ghosts, ghouls, zombies, demons, vampires or just generally creepy looking models in your collection need lovin too! It's time to break out the pallid flesh paints and test out those blood effects! So pick a model and go jeepers creepers on em!

The Deadline: October 31st, 2008: Midnight Central Time (GMT-6:00)

Challenge Rules:

Model must be a Single model.

Based on a single square, round, or hex base. 50mm or smaller accepted.


If you have ANY questions regarding the competition, please feel free to ask here or email DakkaPaintingChallenge@dakkadakka.com!!

Happy Painting!

Just a quick update:

It's been brought to my attention that Cavalry models are 25x50mm in GW games. I really didn't want to exclude them from this challenge, so I'm opening the basing restrictions to 50mm.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what folks put forth this time around!

Only restrictions are really basing restrictions. Any model is allowed no matter the manufacture.

Can the WIP shot be undercoated?

I got so excited about having gotten my model ready to paint that i had undercoated it before i took a WIP shot.

YO DAKKA DAKKA!

I started this yesterday. Interesting theme... hard to decide. I've gone with something you generally wouldn't want to find under the bed.

I admit, that includes most things in either Warhammer world.

grey_death: I think I may get in on this one now that I'm done with my latest project.

I'm putting up a promo for the contest as well on my site.

Now there's only 10 days left so it's off to work for me.

I tell them its "The ten-zero factor, coolness ten, combat effectiveness... zero."

Any WIP is more than ok. It just can't be a 90% finished "Oh hay hurs da WIP shot!".

Reminder for folks though, the entry can't be posted elsewhere! It's an anonymous contest! ^_^
