The =L=eague of Extraordinary Riveters
Terrain Competition: Round 9° - Elementary

Welcome to the 9th round of the League of Extraordinary Riveters Terrain Competition.

The present Round’s theme is The Five Elements. Fire, earth, water, metal and wood constitute one of the classical sets of essential principles that constitute everything, and, as such, will be the base for the next challenge.

There are no other constraints: Size does not matter, nor do scale or game systems, all options are open on those accounts. Imagination and creativity are the only limits.

Rules:

(These will be updated and/or clarified as required)

1. Main requisite: The Five Elements - Fire, Earth, Water, Metal and Wood - must be represented on the final build.
2. Size does not matter.
3. Game system and scale have no restrictions whatsoever, all are welcome. Complete dioramas (as opposed to a usable in-game terrain piece) are also allowed.
4. Materials: All is permitted. Kits and bits are allowed, but remember scratch building and creative and inventive use of materials are part of the spirit of the Comp, and are regarded in the scoring.
5. WIP’s: Only an initial, unpainted, pic is required, but you are encouraged to post further WIP photos in this thread as well as on your personal Plogs.
Both sharing progress and giving feedback are a fundamental part of the Comps, so don’t refrain on these.
6. Final entry: Please DO NOT post your final entry in this thread (the submission procedure will be updated towards the Comp’s end)
Pictures are important. This is not a photography contest, but judging will be carried on upon the pics submitted, and the effort put in photographing a piece has its own rewards.
6 photos (front, both sides, back, top and scale) are the minimum requirement for the final entry. More, as many as wanted or needed, are allowed.
7. Rule of cool: Self-explanatory.
8. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

Running time:

Comp starts with the present post, and finishes midnight 11th May 2014.

I think two months is a fair running time, and would like not to extend it, though it is not absolutely ruled out at this moment.

Judging:

Points will be awarded on the following criteria:

Modelling (For a total of possible 30 points)

10 points: Materials. Scratch building outweighs bought kits; and recycling is encouraged. Creative uses of old or not traditional materials have a strong impact on this category as well.
10 points: Design. Lay out, balance, and creativity.
10 points: Overall Modelling: Detailing, tidiness, gap-filling and whatnot that make a well built piece.

Painting (For a total of 40 points)

10 Points: Basic, solid, paintwork. Neatness and crispiness. Basically, brush control
10 Points: Colour scheme and composition
10 Points: Effects: Texturing, weathering and the like.
10 Points: Advanced techniques: Wet blending, feathering, OSL, and all and any other upper tier painting skills displayed.

Impression & Interpretation (For a total of 20 points)

20 Points: Overall impression of the model and good representation of the theme.

Judge’s Rule of Cool (For a total of 10 points)

10 Points: To we awarded fully at the Judges’ discretion, coolness, creativity, out-of-the-bow thinking and doing something that has not been seen before are rewarded on this item.

Rivets are the quintessential extra element that hold the universe together. Without rivets, everything would just fall apart and dissolve to naught

@Camkierhi: Was counting on that, glad you area in

@xXWeaponPrimeXx: See above! Does that mean that you are in too?

@mad_eddy_13: Glad you find it inspiring, and welcome aboard!

Just keep coming!

Cheers

Hmmm....this will be a tough nut...I have currently no idea what an entry could look like...

In a nutshell: each entry should have representative items of the elements included, does this mean real fire and water or only convincing aspects of the piece must look like the real McCoy? I think I need the dummies manual for this one...but do count me in

That would be AWESOME, but no, not the real thing, just represented on the piece...

As much as I would love to see a working piece displaying the five elements, I'd say fire and water, in particular, should better be kept away of the reach of (overgrown) children...

Good to have you on board, BtW, I know you'll come up with something soon enough!

inmygravenimage wrote:Interesting plan. You are some kind of crazy person ...

I am, and proud of it. Certifiably so, since I got my LoER Badge too!

(Now, that left me wondering: what does that say of the rest of the Club? )

And to make it publicly official, thank you for your offer, and welcome to the Judge's Panel!

Hmm, earth and water... piece of cake. The rest... oh. Given RL constraints, I may or may not be all in. I'll know soon enough. I'll be watching though, at the very least. Use of water though... so tempting...

Cool idea too. Don't forget to update your terrain competition link in your sig everybody.

@Red Harvest: Good to have you tempted with the theme, just hope you can join in. I'll put you down, tentatively, if that's OK with you (No pressure, )

Thanks for the sig code, too

@Vik: I knew you'd do! And it is OK to hold it secret for a while, just don't keep us in the dark for too long!

Yes it is El-Torrminator. I asked the same thing on the previous contest and heard a resounding yes as an answer. So, jump in.

I'm thinking waterfall, which is something I've been meaning to build anyway. Like this

But water effects take forever.

Well, I'll start the process, but no promises about finishing.

Well, I came in late the last time and Littletower was friendly enough to poke me so why not... worst case I don't finish but it's more about having fun than finishing so

I'm in! I do have an idea but I am going to work a bit on it before I give anything away.

Astra Militarum
Iron Warriors Army: Enyo Company
Enyo (Greek: Ενυώ, English translation: "warlike" in Greek mythology; Roman: Bellona), was an ancient goddess of war, acting as a counterpart and companion to the war god Ares. She is also identified as his sister, and daughter of Zeus and Hera in a role closely resembling that of Eris; with Homer in particular representing the two as the same goddess. As goddess of war, Enyo is responsible for orchestrating the destruction of cities

Hahaha... a couple of days in and I had already forgot it was a terrain contest

My first idea was a steampowered mech of wood and metal... that would have been all elements in one model. But alas, not a terrainpiece

BUT, I have come up with another idea so we are still good.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.
