The =L=eague of Extraordinary Riveters
Terrain Competition:Round 10!
" The THRONE."


Welcome to the 10th 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 "The Throne".
Every species (except maybe Necrons.) produce waste, some are more civilized than others at disposing of this, however the basics are Latrines.
Everything from an outhouse, to complex facilities, to dung heaps to Fallout toilet blocks to an ork squatting behind a tree.
All game systems could incorperate a small building or a slurry pit which would be dangerous terrain.

The idea here is a fun smaller piece, though you want to build a huge Imperial Mechanicus Boggus building...go for it. The theme leaves enough room for effects to be used like water and lighting. Think outside the box. This could easily be a fun and usable addition to your terrain collection.

I will also state here clear and load. Lots of WIP shots please, we learn from each other, and ideas should be shared, advice given, so we can grow together. BUT final pics should be kept in reserve. This is important for motivation, we are all our worst critics, and seeing someones brilliant work should not put us off but it can.

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 NOW. And the finish date is Midnight on the 3rd August 2014. That gives you 10 weeks,
which seems fitting. 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. Membership to the League as top prize. Also a commision of your choice by me. (please don't let this put you off.) Painted or unpainted.

2nd Prize. The now infamous Camkierhi materials package. Lots of bits and pieces to help you do better next time!!

3rd Prize Bragging rights only. You did well. (Just think yourself lucky this is not run by Nerdfest, you could be getting nudy pics!)

Special award for good effort: Judges award for someone who may not have been in the top 3 but showed real promise. This gets a Camkierhi materials package also, just to help you along and hopefully see you through the next competition.

Judges:
Camkierhi
Dr H
zammerack (special guest judge.)
Still up for volunteers here folks.

So have at it guys and dolls, lets see where you’re your grunts Squat?

Welcome one and all, I will attempt to keep the lists up to date, and please remember, there is no pressure in signing up, life gets strange, and this is meant to be fun and a distraction.

Can not wait to see what people come up with.....

By the way, toilets in 28mm scale are available from the Leagues own Spuemeister General, DrH. (wish I knew how to link his name)

Also Help can some one help out with the banner? Needs updating.

The Doctor is in... for judging.
For those of you unfamiliar with me and my work. I like little details. But not just "more" details, I like them to have a purpose. Have a look through my gallery and threads to get an idea of the sort of thing I'm talking about.

As a judge, I will be having a VERY close look at your models. So it is important to get good photographs of them. It's no point adding these little details, if you can't make them out in the picture.

Raise your game and pay attention to detail to please me.

Above all though, HAVE FUN. That is the point.

Camkierhi, to link to someone's profile use the "user" and "/user" tags. Make sure to spell the name right though.

I do sell two flavours of scale toilets, as Cam mentioned.
Details can be found in my trade thread here on DD.

I'm currently out of stock of the Tainted toilets, but if I get enough interest I will cast more sooner, rather than later.

Remember though, that the use of these will be seen as a "kit" part for the purposes of judging and buying some (or many ) will in no way be seen as a bribe or influence my judging in any way...

However, in the interest of sharing information, and for those of you that didn't follow my thread at the time, here's a series of pictures that show how I sculpted the toilets. This may prove useful if you want to attempt some yourself.
Spoiler:






Feel free to ask me any questions.

and a last shot of the painted Tainted toilet


Good luck to all.

Hmm, has potential. I already constructed the "Comfort Station" for the previous previous contest. I suppose I could create one with interior. Making it playable though...

Looks like someone deleted Littletower's image. Bummer.

I'd like to have a go!

I'm not very active on dakkadakka, and I'd like to change that. Modelling and painting is why I got into the hobby in the first place (my armies routinely suck, so M&P is all I have).

I'll be moving back to the States in about a month, but I can at least start designing my build and collecting items before then.

Cheers!

It was indeed not modelling/gaming related (but it did have to do with the topic, sort of), so it was rightly deleted, I guess.

(Edited my previous post as well)

I might try to add it to my entry to make it valid, though...

Will have to give this some thought.

Yeah, it looks like the entire design of the outhouse is to punish the guy down in the stocks, obviously there is no bucket in there and whoever is in the stocks will be getting rained upon (and worse!).

I have an idea... but it's so painfully simple that it barely warrants entry. I may have to come up with something else.

Interesting idea M0rdain. Look forward to seeing that become a reality.

GrimDork: If it's simple, you could knock it out quickly and then either build upon it and extend it (depending on what it is), or scrap it and do something else. There's plenty of time to try out a few ideas. (unless you're like me and take AGES to finish a model).
