Hi Everyone

I volunteered to run the League Table mainly because I think its nice to know that what your doing is being recorded and you can see how you have progressed or have something to aim for.

Brief History of the Challenge

In March 2015 Paradigm started the unofficial monthly painting contest. It's goal was to get DakkaDakka members to paint up their miniatures for fun and gentle rivalry. The community that has grown around the challenge is supportive and always willing to answer any questions. Inspiration is drawn from each member and a feeling of enthusiasm is nurtured. So come and join us, everyone is welcome no matter the painting standard or end goal. Its a great way to hit painting targets and keep motivated.

The Challenge as been a great success and we are now in our 4th Year, still going strong.

How the Scoring Works

The League table shows the percentage of votes received each month for the participants. This is the points you get for that month (Note; Minimum is 1 and Dakka polls round up to whole numbers) Each months score is added up to make the overall score for that year.
Below is the League Table for Paradigm's unofficial painting challenge here on Dakka, it will be updated as we go.

League Table

Ta for the update, Midget!

1 point outside the top 5 (which admittedly is waaay more than I probably deserve)... Something to fight for in the remaining months!

And special congratulations at this stage to Modock, the lead you've pulled out over the rest of the pack this year is frankly astonishing! 70 points total and only 2 entries that didn't make the top 3, with every month thus far entered... Inspirational and impressive stuff.

Hah! My cunning strategy of just showing up has me ranked above far better painters! Victory through perseverance! Now all I need is Para to miss a month to be the undisputed king of stubbornness. Of course, he just needs 5 minutes or so to bang out a top-notch mini, so this is unlikely to happen; any faster and his proof pictures and finals would cause a time paradox.

Fun to see the numbers and the entries all in one place.

Well I got to get it finished first

I'm sure you will come up with something just as good (you have been so far )

Yeah you are doing well Nev, beating the 1 entry winners now, your Mannfred Von Carnstein in June seems to have been the most popular so far and rightly so, a very good entry

I'm just glad you guys are looking at and using the table, makes the effort worthwhile, although I always notice I've done something wrong after I post the pics up. Like this month all the bold numbers have gone and 3rd - 4th are the wrong way around (I'll make any tied places for points joint at the end of the year) I keep meaning to do the archive section but never get around to it, it means going back through every challenge to get all the info which I need to be in the mood for.

I can help a little with the legwork. I just sifted through all of Paradigm’s posts in the painting section (76 pages worth!) to get links for all the competition threads. Poll/Competition/Vote for each month. Plus a few affiliated threads.

Quite a blast from the past to look back at that first thread... Waiting for 5 people to see if there was enough interest, and this year we have 74 people in the League so far with a couple more this month!

Also something very inspirational there, Nev saying that he might struggle to get an entry complete inside a month... And here he is now, 33 entries for 33 round if I'm remembering rightly! If that's not a testament to the community we've built up around these challenges, and the productive spirit that's created, I don't know what is! Congratulations mate, you're the poster boy of this whole shebang!

And you were worried about being able to participate in your own contest.

In my defense, I was worried about having to go from sprue to finished in a month. Which I can do if the stars align at the right time of year. But is generally quite rare. The fact that I’ve made them all speaks to the open interpretation allowed on the topics (some I’ve had to stretch a bit) and my squirrel/packrat nature of keeping the primed and ready to paint pile full. Although for some entries I had to dig deep into old, forgotten boxes for something to paint.

As always, it’s a joy to participate in these. Lots of fun, and it helps push my envelope as a painter, both in subjects and techniques.

Echoing those words. Thank you very much Nev, that is a great help to have it all in one place, I'll get my act together and put the effort in to finish that section off.

I really want you guys to make the 3 year mark, just a few more months to go

I feel the same, its given me a great excuse to create things that normally I would never have even considered. Thanks to you both for running this challenge for so long and all your entries

Table and Archive section updated, thanks a lot Nev

I couldn't work out a better way of getting all the images in one thread, doing each month as a spoiler took up a lot of space and took away the focus from the current years challenge. I tired doing a spoiler within a spoiler but couldn't get it to work it seems to ignore the 2nd spoiler, unless I'm doing something wrong?

Woooo! My rubbish Ultramarine got me into the top 5!

Cheers for the work on the archive, it seems the Photobucketpocalyse has claimed a few entries but most are still there. Yeah, spoilers within spoilers don't work, it's fine how it is to be honest.

Not to be That Guy after all your hard work, but you listed Nov 17 as Armour Up, not Hold The Line.

Wow, thanks very much to Nevelon for compiling the challenge thread links for us. It'll save me some time come February or March when I do my yearly challenge recap in my P&M blog.

It's interesting to see how much everyone has improved since the first challenge. I've missed a handful of them, but I've entered most of them since it started, and it's good motivation for me to keep painting. I never get many votes, but I don't let that slow me down. It just means I'm in very good company as far as skills. This last challenge was my second best in terms of raw numbers of votes, falling 1 short of my best (in the BOOM! challenge).

My armies (re-counted and updated on 6/7/18, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~11200 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1100 | Space Wolves: ~2000
Inquisition: ~300 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Talons of the Emperor: ~500
Tau Empire: ~6300 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~8400 | Death Guard: ~2700 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2400
Check out my P&M Blogs: ZergSmasher's P&M Blog | Stormsurge blog | Imperial Knights blog | Total models painted in 2017: 65 | Total models painted in 2018: 85 | Current main painting project: Ravenwing Talonmaster

Welcome to Dakka!

That's certainly a suitable entry, when you're done could you please post it in this month's thread rather than the League Table thread here?
https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/751895.page

Thanks, and good luck!

End of Year 3 Summary

End of Year League Table
Spoiler:




A huge congratulations to everyone that took part and voted in any month of this years challenge. The points are for fun but here is a rundown of the year.

The top 10 positions for this year are:

1st - Modock with 106 points
2nd - Feltmonkey with 86 points
3rd - Midget Gems with 74 points
4th - Chris56 with 71 points
5th - Moolet with 63 points
6th - Paradigm with 62 points
7th - ZoBo with 58 points
8th - Keezus with 54 points
9th - n1ceguypaul with 45 points
10th - Bottle with 37 points

A very well deserved win Modock, your painting really is something some of us can only dream of. It's been brilliant fun watching your creations take shape and how skilfully you change the tone of a colour.
Feltmonkey did really well to keep up and in doing so has created some masterful work (story about his son wanting to hold the treeman is the best though )
And a great battle between myself and Chris56 for 3rd/4th I really thought you were going to catch me at the end. Thank you for making me up my game with some of my entries knowing you where right there behind me.

The main point of the challenge is to get people painting, a set of people managed to submit finished entries for each challenge or most months. A big well done goes to:

Chris56 - 12 Entries
Feltmonkey - 12 Entries
Keezus - 12 Entries
Midget Gems - 12 Entries
Modock - 12 Entries
Nevelon - 12 Entries
Paradigm - 12 Entries
Vejut - 12 Entries
Mootlet - 11 Entries
n1ceguypaul - 11 Entries
u971 - 10 Entries
GulGog TufToof - 9 Entries
Zobo - 9 Entries
ZergSmasher - 9 Entries

Special mention for Para and Nev who have entered every challenge across all years meaning 36 challenges in a row.

The Stats
We had a total of 356 entries by 95 different people averaging 30 entries a month.

We had a total of 5302 votes averaging 441 votes a month.

Highest number of entries was March's "Space Marine" challenge with 38 entries.

Highest votes in 1 month was November's " Hold The Line!" challenge with 688 votes cast.

Highest votes for an entry was also in November's " Hold The Line!" challenge, 61 votes for General Annoyance.

Highest percentage of the vote was in August's challenge "Brutal" for Modock with 14% of the vote.

One hit wonder was Tittlemanscrest who won June's "Legendary" challenge with his only entry of the year.

Modock managed to place in 9 of the 12 months top 3 positions

Modock, Midget Gems and Zobo each won 2 months.
