Welcome to the 20th round of the League of Extraordinary Riveters Terrain Competition.
Noise pollution

Welcome, one and all, to the 20th round of the League of Extraordinary Riveters Terrain contest.

For those who have not taken part before, this is a competition about terrain building (as you may have gathered from the title), but it is not strictly limited to pure terrain, dioramas that can be used as table top terrain are allowed (see rules below). To get a feel for how these competitions run and what to expect you may wish look at the previous rounds, linked below.

Each round has a “theme” or other defining attribute(s) that must in some way be applied to the your terrain project, to compete with other modellers for that most prestigious of prizes, membership into The League of Extraordinary Riveters [LoER].

The competition is open to everyone registered on Dakka Dakka, all are welcome to enter regardless of ability, etc.

The main aim of these competitions is to encourage gamers and model-makers alike to go that extra mile when building terrain that can be used for playing your preferred tabletop wargame (or similar pastime - for example, a board game playing piece would be acceptable). Those taking part can expect to receive ideas, inspiration, encouragement and feedback from each other, and at the end each of the participants is "rewarded" with a new piece of terrain for their own use (that's the thing you just built).

The winner of each round hosts the next round, and the cycle continues.
The theme, limitations, rules, judging and prizes are all the responsibility of the host, although he or she can get help from others for some of those things...

For those who are returning once again to compete a most sincere and heartfelt welcome back!

... And now onwards to the current competition...

This round's theme is "Noise pollution".
I want you to interpret this in any way you see fit, but I will be impressed by any interesting, unusual and original interpretation thereof. The main idea is noise on FULL POWER. I think it is something everyone should try. Bonus goes to unusual material use.


You can be in any scale or any system you like. Ideally, your first WIP photo should what you bits and pieces you are starting with, but I'm aware these things evolve organically. Also, it's about being innovative with what you have lying about or can scavenge - but using a kit part for a totally different purpose, or on a different scale, will also be rewarded.

I like to see how people build their models, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this. So please post as many WIP shots as you can. This can achieve more than just keeping me happy (and you want to do that anyway ): Regular posts in this thread will keep it in the public eye and will allow more people to find this contest. Also, if you post WIP shots, others can give you feedback and ideas before it's too late to change it (this will only help you as a participant and we all learn something new).

However, FINAL pictures should not be shown here. This is important for motivation, we are all our own worst critics, and seeing someone's brilliant work should not put us off but it can. I can't stop you posting in your own threads, but please not in here. PM me with the pictures / links instead when they are ready.

One last note on photographs. Please put as much effort into taking photos of your finished model as you have building it. Poorly lit, out-of-focus, blurred, and low resolution photos can harm your chances in any competition. Remember, If I can't see it in the photo, I can't judge it. Only you can hold the model in your hands and turn it around to see everything. Make sure everything you want me to see is in the photos. Thank you.
If you build special terrain(like with functional mechanical parts) a video how it works, will be great.

Rules:.
1: Talk about fight club the Competition. Tell everyone. Post it in your blogs. Add the banner to your signature.
HTML code for the banner.....
{url=http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/702469.page]{img]http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/11/8/429237_md-.jpg{/img]{/url]
change all the "{" to "["
It should look and work like this one:


2: Must be completed by the deadline. And when I say "must", I mean "about". There is a fair amount of leeway given in these contests but assume there will be no extensions and we'll cross any problems when it arises.
The Deadline is 11 weeks which makes it midnight BST 11.11.2016
Which I believe is 19:00 EST or 16:00 PST!
But anything on that night through to midday will be accepted so that those of you living in the past can keep going until bed time.

3: Your piece should be scratch-built or heavily converted. Model kit parts can be used, especially if used in an unusual way, but you will get more points for something you sculpt yourself, so keep that in mind. Unconventional parts are highly recommended in addition to those you will be using as part of this competition.

4: Your model should be a piece of terrain or a diorama that can be used for gaming purposes. It cannot be a playable model in itself (a crashed tank must stay crashed), but removable models (people) are fine.

5: Any scale, any setting and any gaming system are welcome. A nice mixture of fantasy, sci-fi, historical, or modern will make this contest all the more interesting. If you don't play a game, that's fine too; just make a display piece, but keep rule 4 in mind.

6: The women are right, size doesn't matter. You can make as small or as large a model as you want. Bear in mind the time-scale and don't bite off more than you can chew. We've all made that mistake!

7: Final Entry: Six or more photos of your final entry, showing top, front, both sides, back and all the important parts - not to be posted in this thread. PM me with links to your galleries, albums, etc. As I said above, please take the time to take the best photos that you can.
Together with your photos, I would like a statement of the items (a photo would be ideal) that you used. This is not a must, but would be helpful.

Feel free to include some fluff or an explanation of the model/setting to allow the rest of us to fully appreciate your work.

8: AMBITION: Push yourself. Try something new! Always wanted to use leds? Go for it! Fancied weathering powders? Here's your chance! I'll be looking at your galleries for previous work, entries etc. I want everyone to feel that their best has a fair shot at this. This is very important, I did not expect to win the last round because most peoples work was such great work and many had pushed themselves way more than I did, so this will have a lot more wait for me this round. Another words it might not be the BEST model that wins, but the one that has shown themselves to have pushed that envelope.

9: Not so much a rule, but it wouldn't be the League of Extraordinary Riveters if there are no rivets. This also means similar small details are highly valued (rivets are the best example of this level of detailing).

10: Sprue. Find a use for the often discarded wonder material and bonus points will be yours.

11. Small bonus for being small, I have repeatedly seen amazing large pieces being made, and am guilty myself of such, however so many fall by the way side because the thing grows arms and legs and runs away with time. So a small bonus will be awarded to those who can give me a piece on a CD or less. This is not a hard and fast rule. See Rule #6 for size matters.

12. THE RULE OF COOL trumps all.

If you are unsure of anything just ask away.

Judging:
Modelling: 45 points total.
(10 points) Skill and Techniques - No mould lines, gaps or rough edges (that are not meant to be rough). Show that you know the difference between a hobby knife and a spatula.
(5 points) Originality - You could have built anything, what did you choose?
(10 points) Materials - Choice of Ordinary items (ease of use / ambition / originality). Scratch-building Vs. recycled materials parts.
(5 points) Little details - Rivets, eggs, and other small details that add realism to the piece.
(5 points) The wonder material - Use of Sprue in is own right not just as a hidden support structure. Good, new and original use of sprue.
(10 points) Design - How well was the idea translated to the model? Layout of the piece; artistically and for playability. Well thought out design for the setting. Does the build fit the theme?

Painting: 40 points total.
(10 points) Between the lines - Crisp and clean paintwork. No slips or brushstrokes. Good
(5 points) Simple but effective - Use of basic techniques (washes, dry-brushing, layering etc.) to a high level. coverage of both the basecoat and final layers.
(10 points) Skill and Techniques - Use of advanced painting techniques such as blending, shading, OSL, weathering, edge highlighting, freehand, etc... And their execution.
(10points ) Final product - How does the piece look overall in all its glory.

Bonuses: 15 points total.

(10 points) Coolness: Rule of Cool is always in effect.
(5 points) Ambition: How far have you pushed yourself as a modeller and painter? Is this your usual standard, or have you tried new techniques, processes - or just played it safe?
(5 points) Size bonus: If you can keep it under a CD in base size, you could get a "little" bonus.

100 points total.

Yes, there is more emphasis on modelling than painting. And Ambition points are there becuase I want to reward folk who go the extra mile on this.

Prizes:
1st Prize.
Membership to the League of Extraordinary Riveters as top prize. You will be allowed to fly the League's banner and be recognised as a modeller devoted to Rivets.



People's choice: As voted for by your fellow Dakkanauts.
Warm feelings inside and the bragging rights that your peers love your work.


Judges:
Camkierhi
Inmygravenimage and DrH will be joining the judges circle for this round. Tough crowd guys and dolls.


So, go to it people. Get extraordinarily building!


Ok folks! some bla,bla,bla for beginning, now back to theme.

Noise pollution

What you can imagine about it?




really loud proclamator tower, xenos destroying morale again and again with device creating noise sound.
(big automata drums for Orks .... )
Diorama where we can see, destruction power of noise.






You really ask why I choose this one? Because i want you ALL PUSH to something extraordinary functional. Is like wonder, when you put your terrain on table, and this small piece start making NOISE. (music, special sound to actual action, etc)
I mean all have smartphone.(or similar device)
For smartphone you can buy item called bluetooth speaker.( cheapest ones cost under 10$...)

Imagine and make working NOISY terrain from it....
(build speaker into terrain.Yes, waterproof bluetooth speakers sell under 10$ too ^^ )

You can find it on large E-marts, like DX.com, Aliexpress.com, ebay, for sure is selled in your town(maybe a bit higher price...)

What are you waiting for? LET's make !!!!!!! NOISE !!!!!!!!! on table of silence






Automatically Appended Next Post:
Don't know If i can join competition. (I don't have enough exp for judging, For me anyone win, who can sucesfull finish this in time)
It does not matter.
I devise this crazy idea, so I must lead as example.
Spoiler:

from china waiting for this
http://www.dx.com/p/y3-portable-mini-wireless-bluetooth-v4-0-outdoor-handsfree-speaker-w-mic-tf-black-401091#
And thinking what shape of terrain will be best for it.

So you want us to build a model that actually makes sounds?

Or is there scope (but less points) for something that represents sound? A noisy scene but without real speakers to make sound.

I happen to have a bluetooth speaker to hand, so I have no excuse, but questions must be asked.

But successfully representing noise in a "silent" model, would be an interesting challenge.

I have a possible idea, but will consider my options first before jumping in.

@Dr H - is on you.
Build it as you want.
represent noise in silent model is harder way, but same interesting...

I want see your imagination riots

As you can see rules, points are for classic features.
But, anyone who build speaker version have pointless plus point from me

Well someone's eager.

I'm not entirely sure about this one. I might let it stew for a while, see if anything pops into my head- but I have class now, so I might decide to just focus on that alone.

IF I enter... I'm not going to do electronic sound. I'll see if I can't make a tiny clockwork chime kit.

I feel as if I won the noble prize of modeling....found my idea for my entry...I found in my junk box an old mc donalds toy from the kids club menu...it's of an old bike/sledge...and has a nasty sound function...combined with some scratch building this will make a really cool piece...

Will keep you informed about my endeavors!

THE MASTER HAS RETURNED!

We mere mortals are but disciples to his cause.THE RIVET.

For those who are uninitiated, and have yet to gain the divine knowledge, dsteingass is the founder member of our glorious League and all should bow before him, his works are the inspiration behind so many of our endeavours.

And he makes a very good point, last round the entries were amazing and it was ridiculously hard to judge them, but one thing I noticed, the distinct lack of rivets.

With this in mind I am calling all the League to the challenge, no matter how far back you go, no matter how long it has been, and no matter what else you are doing, us riveters need to unite and show just what a wonderful thing a well done rivet is, lets show what it means to be a member of the greatest League ever!

So I say to you, shout it out, lets see you stand and be counted. Riveters we need you.

Oh and don't forget to be noisy while your at it! Tek has given us a great idea to run with, lets see some action.
