Surrey, BC - Canada

Welcome to the 32nd round of the League of Extraordinary Riveters Terrain Competition.
Theme this round is: "Honor Our First Responders"
With what is happening all around us, this seemed appropriate.

Welcome, one and all, to the 32nd installment of the League of Extraordinary Riveters Terrain Competition!

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 31 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 modelers for that most prestigious of prizes, membership into The League of Extraordinary Riveters [LoER]. The winner of each round hosts the next round, and the cycle continues.

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

The League’s aim is to encourage fellow gamers, hobbyists and model-makers to up their game through building terrain for their tabletop, be it for wargames, board games, dioramas, whatever! Everyone participating is encouraged to use this thread to trade ideas, inspire each other, and give feedback and encouragement.
Everyone is a winner in a League competition, because in the end, you have a brand-spankin’-new piece of terrain!

For those returning to the competition, welcome back! For those competing for the first time, welcome!

Honor Our First Responders

This contest's theme means your terrain piece must have something to do with front line medical/first responders or something with a similar theme. For example: a medical tent, hospital, diorama with an ambulance, field hospital, apothecary's shop, etc. [But wait you cry, I do not want to do human things!] Then something similar like a Painboy's table, Wraithbone grove, healing circle, Chaos totem, Beastman totem, Tyanid reclamation pool, Dark Eldar torture room, etc. [But wait you cry, I do not want to do living things!] What about a Necron re-animation chamber, a crypt or graveyard (for you Undead types), etc. Now I have mostly used 40K and WFB examples, but there are hundreds of game systems to pick from, just tie it loosely to the theme. Use your imagination...if you are unsure, feel free to send me a PM.

It 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 as you build. 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.

We all like to see how people build their models. So please post as many WIP shots whenever you can. 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. Post in your own threads, but please not in here. PM me 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. Also if you want to add some figures for scale purposes to one of your photos feel free, they can be painted or unpainted, they are worth no points in the judging.

Rules:.
1: Talk about the Competition. Post it in your blogs. Add the banner to your signature.
HTML code for the banner.....
{url=https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/787913.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 31 July

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 assemble 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: 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.

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. As previously noted: if you want to add some figures for scale purposes to one of your photos feel free, they are worth no points in the judging.

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.

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. THE RULE OF COOL trumps all.

If you are unsure of anything just ask away.

Judging:
Modelling: 50 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?
(15 points) Materials - Choice of Ordinary items (ease of use / ambition / originality). Scratch-building Vs. recycled materials Vs. kit parts.
(10 points) Little details - Rivets and other small details that add realism to the piece.
(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: 35 points total.
(5 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.
(5 points) Thinking outside the box - Use of unusual methods to produce good results. Including the use of printed materials, or unusual media (iridescent paint, etc.).
(10 points ) 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 modeler and painter? Is this your usual standard, or have you tried new techniques, processes - or just played it safe?

100 points total.

Yes, there is more emphasis on modelling than painting. And Ambition points are there because 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 recognized as a modeler devoted to Rivets. As well as host the next round.

People's choice: As voted for by your fellow Dakkanauts.
More warm feelings inside and the bragging rights that your peers who love your work. [Could be the same person that wins 1st Price, but not always]

And...
Anyone who completes a model for this competition will receive a full, detailed critique of your piece, written by me (which is not worth very much...but we are on a budget and celebrities were not affordable). This will highlight the good points and the parts I feel need work. This is purely my opinion and is part of how I judged the pieces. Send me a PM if you do not want one posted.

So start gathering bits and get building!

Good luck to all!

Good theme, and been a while since we had one with laid out point system I think.

Well, I'll throw my hat in. Plenty of potential for some dark mechanicus shenanigans with the theme, or maybe even a return to my cyborks with a pain-boy/mek-boy assembly line. Trick will be keeping it small enough for me to actually be able to store it somewhere

Thinking cap engaged.

hell ... I really want to participate, but I can not.
my long-term project does not fit into this contest.
I wanted to use this challenge as a springboard for my procrastinated motivation.
can anyone be able to say some kind of loophole in the rules so that I can crawl with this into this contest?

I am in as well... I think the shabby machine shop I made for my little frontier mining outpost might be getting a med lab companion, but that means doing some interior detail, something I've never really done. I'll have to think on that...

Captain Brown, thanks for hosting, and cheers on a timely and well-thought-out theme!

monkeytroll, glad to have you on board!

Villoy, don't give up too soon! What are we looking at? I'm not too familiar with Battlefleet Gothic (if that's what that is), but maybe there's a connection. Are those dudes orbiting a sanctuary world? Orbital dry dock, i.e. a med facility for ships? Give us a little something to work with...

Steampunk...does it have an apothecary that is marked within the city (with that green neon sign that pharmacies display)?

I'm in, too. Not sure yet what I'll do. I have an idea for a piece that I've been kicking around. Might have to throw in a medical-something in the rubble.
Definitely going to be lots of rubble.

Here's my best pitch... and it's a stretch, so maybe keep at it and run it by CB. Take your flying city as a hospital, except that airships are the patients, then recreate all the components of a hospital. The shipyards are the maternity ward where ships are born, the dry dock is the surgical wing where they're repaired, the loading bays and fueling stations are the pharmacy where the things are taken on board to keep the ships healthy, there's a rescue flotilla as an ambulance with their station as the emergency room, and whatever crazy city spires you build are the administrative wing.

Best I can do, and if it sounds like what you're after, put me down as super excited to see you pull it off. I've been working a ton with foam lately, so let us know if you want more brainstorming.

@Villoy Brauberg: What is your original vision you had for your steampunk flying city? Would it be possible to start having two slow burning projects that complement each other? Your city and a separate LoER build that could be from the same world? We have three months to finish. If you look at my last entry, it was nowhere near the quality of the other two finishers, but it was still fun to join and compete. Maybe take parts of MacPhail's idea and make a second smaller floating city (just a few times larger than the ships) that is a giant flying hospital that crews can visit for their medical needs?

Also what game are those ships from?

Sorry for the long answer,
I was on a hacienda with my parents. digging and planting potatoes.
there is a good nature but there is a lot of work and bad internet.
Thank you very much for your loopholes, as soon as I get home to the city, I will start building the city (sorry for the tautalogy)
with a dragstor and a hospital.

about the world.
This is a common generic steampunk world, with flying islands and airships.
The island will be on a scale of 1: 1200.
this scale because my ships on this scale.
I have ships from the Leviathan game from the Catalist game lab and from Dystopia.
Well, something like this : )

And "slow burning projects" is a great idea.
a small duel inside the contest will create competition and this will increase the chances that the project will be completed.

and sorry for the mistakes, my french is very bad. : D

Mother's Day is all about gardening around these parts, so I have a lot of plastic sitting here. My project is going to be a Gaslands arena.

Nothing honors our first responders like some post-apocalyptic, televised, vehicular mayhem.

Some starting materials for now:

They certainly make good wall supports

Present plan is definitely dark mechanicus, currently heading towards flesh-vats, but-tanks and the like for a selection of gribblies.

To that end, started collecting likely looking bits...

I made some progress on my terrain. I have a few pieces going.

Here is the wide-angle view. Play by play in the spoiler.





Spoiler:

A pumping station and some big industrial piping. Going to put some smaller pipes coming out the side and the big pipe turning into the ground at the end. With all that metal, there are a lot of opportunities for rivets!




Also, I have some water towers. A few odds and ends found in old tool bags and drawers to make some detail. Staple rungs for ladders.




The start of some scaffolding, going to hold up some ramps, raised pathways, and various other stuff.




Some assorted scatter terrain pieces. Some scrap fences from craft sticks and pieces of sprue. Some homemade barbed wire. (I know, razor wire would be more appropriate for stopping people, barbed wire is more designed for livestock. But, in the grim dark of the near future, you take what you can get. ) And, a couple of cars that I may hit a few times with a hammer and drill some holes in. Leave them scattered around as busted wrecks from previous matches.




And another shot of some more pieces that will likely be used on other stuff. Planning some more fencing, a couple of other tanks of various sizes and shapes, and some billboards. (Televised death matches need to sell advertising space, right?) Also, if all that wasn't enough, I want to rig some LEDs in there too. School is almost out. One more week to grade everything that's been submitted, and then I'll be in serious summer hobby grind mode.





Happy building, everyone!

DJ is off to the races, monkeytroll has a very cool slate of materials... come on, everyone, the clock is ticking!

I've mostly decided on a plan and started pulling together materials. I'm going to build a medical station for a remote mining camp that has been emerging as my main table terrain theme for a while. I'll use a cardboard photo storage box as the main component, and the big challenge is that I'm going to build an interior for it, ideally a playable interior courtesy of a removable roof or something.I did a big bits box deep dive and found some promising bits to strike a balance between the advanced medical technology of the 41st millennium, the ruggedness and improvisation of a frontier mining outpost, and the grim darkness of the far future. I'll post a bunch of materials to my blog later this weekend... be here's the choice bits:

Some cool looking bits Monkeytroll and MacPhail. Can't wait to see your work!

I've got some more tanks made and primed. Going to get some paint going, but not going to post the painted tanks here.



Also made some more junk fence there, and I have some propane tanks going from some travel cosmetics containers and ping pong balls.



Let's go everyone!

MacPhail pointed me this way. I just so happened to be making a scratch built diorama for a competition on youtube. It's a medical labratory in an Inquisition facility. It fits the criteria for this comp, pretty well Would love some feedback on my first project like this, and this seems like a good way to do it. I have a project log going on my profile as well.

Neotericity,
Looks good so far. Looking forward to more progress.
McPhail has turned me on to a number of competitions, including Mad Doc Grotsnik's Drunken Master competition. From which I am still reeling. But also this one.
The LoER deals a lot with tiny and minute details. Shoot for that, and you'll do well. Plus, you can see the points break down at the beginning of the competition announcement.

Looking to make some more progress once I sober up a little bit.

I plan to weather them. I printed these two billboards off Gaslands’ website. The suds ad is weathered more on the print itself.


I’m not sure how to make the frame seem more realistic. I applied a heavy hand in the Agrax earthshade, and some of Vallejo’s black wash. Any ideas of how to make this seem better? I’m not sure what I’m going for, but am not sure what to do next.

Aye Captain, all ahead full!





More details on the doors, interior walls, and bunks:
Spoiler:

Right out of the gate I mismeasured the interior walls and had to trim them.


I cut the card walls of the box to fit the MEdge doors.


I cut the interior card walls to match the exterior doors.


Next steps there: sand and prep the exterior, assemble the floor, and start laying out the interior.


I also started building the bunks.

Here's Some of my past progress. Priming stage started to clear some doubts. Lots of painter's tape. Really Enjoy this aluminum primer, goes on pretty smooth and super shiny, weathered the stuff you see down a bit though with washes later on. As far as actually playing with this piece I think it could be used in a modular build for a zone mortalis board, for a killteam objective, we'll see but been enjoying the project so far for the most part
