You know, the #1 condolence I have from not winning the last contest is that I don't have to judge this one. Good luck, Vik!

Dipping With Wood Stain






@airborneginger the wrapper is just cut out stuck on the building with pva. The weathering is a mix of a few experiments, plain agrax earthshade looked best, it took off the shine and adhered really well.
The sign above the door and the tidy sign both just have agrax straight over the wrapper.

Yep, it even stuck for a while, until i tried to get some wrinkles in it, then it cracked.

eventually sticking it between two sticks of sprue as supports and then spraying turned the least ugly. It functions I guess...


When I tried applying PVA, it didn't work at all. It just kind of flowed off.
But I have some old and thick foundation paints from GW, they stick to everything.

The PVA did however work very well on the actual cookie container.

LOOK!! a shameless self-promotion! (gasp!)

Hello you all!

i haven´t really tried to avoid any decisions... that´s not my style...

what happened was that worklife has swallowed me whole and spit me out after it chewed me a good deal too much... i was so drained the last days that i was in no condition to follow my duties as the judge for this competition...for this i plead forgivingness of you all... i will now see through all the entries and then after a small (and hitherto unknown amount of time ) i will speak my judgement...


and yes... it will be a tough one...


just to be on the safe side...iirc

Scarper, monkeytroll, Two Spartan , MauS, MrMerlin


have shown their final works... tho i recall many more of you folks to be wanting to compete in this competition??? correct me if i am wrong here...

Idea for next LoER contest- 5 weeks instead of 4? Would not have helped me, but there would likely be more entries w/ a slightly longer timeframe?

The winner of each contest becomes lord, master, and judge of the next contest, and can set it up however they wish within the basic rules.

To be honest, i dont think a longer time would make any difference, people would just wait longer to start 1 month is plenty long for most things imo.

as dave said... the winner is the next lord of the upcoming competition...which is already chosen....

but at first let me tell you that the decision was very hard to make... i even got my wife into the fold to decide as i needed some unbiased perspective to look at the entries...the ruling then was unison so i am quite strong about my decision nevertheless the touchness i had to tackle^^

all entries i really loved... it was the cremè de la cremè of scratchbuilding terrain to be seen for this competition... each entry had for me some very cool details or moody specials that i enjoyed immensely... but it boils down to this...there can only be one winner... and that lucky and sad person is :

Spoiler:

MrMerlin







for me the color composition, the slight hint to an italo western movie, the lil details like corckscrew smockestacks, the spilled cookies...all that was what made me choose this entry at last...

so... good luck MrMerlin... you will see sooner than you think how tough that judging will be

oh...and as for the price... due to my recent increase of work i have decided to start your price as a new sideproject of mine... was meant to be done already but i was hampered by life...but i will shortly start to build up a very unique terrain statue staring a rivetto hitherto never to be seen hope you are ok with that ?





and finally i have to thank you all for joining this competition... i had tremendously fun to watch your works shape up to those extremly good looking terrain pieces!...

yours truly

Well done indeed people, that was fun and hey, we all got a bit of terrain out of it

Good choice vik, hard decision to call, I was really torn between that and Scarp's.

very well spotted!! Guess what one of my all time favourie movies is? The Good, the Bad and the Ugly! I have actually been watching scenes of it/ listening to its music while and in between sessions of building the factory.... maybe I should ad some graves and build a little mexican stand-off diorama? Devil Eyez vs Baldie LOL
