Default Worst Painted Model [RULES]

Due to unforseen difficulties, the contest schedule has been rearranged last minute - apologies for any inconvenience.

Everyone started painting somwhere, and we've all got some hideously painted models lying around at the back of a cupboard or buried under piles of discarded scenery. So, go fish one out, and come back here, and enter, and we can all sit around and laugh at each other.

[hr]
Notice - Change in Rules

We've recently been contacted by GW about the way we run our contests. It's pretty complicated, but basically, due to some legal technicalities, there are restrictions placed on the distribution of photographic material depicting GW's intellectual property for either commerical or competitive purposes.
It's a bit annoying, but luckily it doesn't neccessarily mean we have to stop running the contests.

It does mean we have to change the way that entries are submitted, though.
Bit of a hassle, but I'm sure it won't stop people from entering

Instead of a PM, you need to fill out a form (GW are going to send me a copy within the next week, I'll post it up here when I get it).

This apparently contains the following fields:

-Full Name
-Forum username
-Date of Birth
-Home Address and Phone Number
-Passport-sized photo of yourself
-Date and store of purchase of models
-Photos of entry
-Date of completion of entry
-Full names and usernames of two forum members (one must be a moderator) who have seen your entry and support your participation in the contest

Then you simply need to send this form in to me, and a copy of it to GW email account (I'll give you the address when I get it), and you're in! (I need to receive confirmation from GW first, so might take a few weeks to get through. Deadlines will be adjusted accordingly if required).

I know this is a somewhat cumbersome procedure, but you guys are so dedicated, I doubt this'll affect entry numbers!

[hr]
  • Entry forms can be submitted via a PM to Thantos from April 1[sup]st[/sup] until May 22[sup]nd[/sup].
  • Voting will take place between 23[sup]rd[/sup] and May 30[sup]th[/sup].
  • Winners will be announced on the 30[sup]th[/sup] of May.

[hr]
Rules:
  • This competition is open to a single badly painted model
  • Up to three pictures of your entry may be submitted.
  • Model may be converted
  • The model has to be fully painted
  • The model must be really badly painted
  • Forgeworld models are not allowed
  • Super-heavies are not allowed
  • Your model may not have been entered in a previous contest.
  • Photos of your entry may not exceed 800x600 pixels.

I don't think we have to worry about this one... :funny:


Well, I can't believe I've actually got something for this.


Wait, what's that...

:huh: ... :-\
Are you sure about that, Hive Lord? Please tell me this is an April Fool's joke. I want confirmation on that before anybody sends their full name and forum name to anybody. I will cease purchasing any more GW materials from here on if this is for real.



And since when was there a "worst painted model" competition?

Cumbersome? That's an understatement...

That- and there's a difference between 'dedicated' and 'fanatical'...

Willingly putting information such as what is shown above at risk just for the sake of a modeling contest is what I'd consider 'fanatical' unfortunately... Not 'dedicated'... :-\

I ain't fanatical for this kind of thing- so even though I KNOW I have something I could send in for some lulz- if this is for real, count me out. :'(

Let us just hope my gut feeling is correct... :P (Isn't it? :'( ) I'll start looking for that so-bad-its-good model I'm thinking of...

Maybe... but you'll have to compete with the rest of us bad modelers too. The model I'm going to submit made, "worst attempt at something cool ever" at my store. I just hope I can submit it.

Just look at your calender. Or maybe only people in certain countries are going to get this...

Oh yeah, I do too.

Can I just say. This pink forum colour hurts my eyes. I feel like I've entered the carebear forums or something!
