8th BarterTown painting contest!

Post by CMSheats » Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:49 am

Hey guys, I am going to be hosting the 8th BT painting contest! Now, I know there was alot of confusion about the last contest about how a voting thread and pics never appeared, and that's because alot of guys were not able to finish in the time that was given in the contest. So the deadline for finishing your models has been extended! Also, the models that were finished (Last contest) will be put in the voting thread of this contest.

Start - Sunday, the 18th of March

Finish - Monday, the 9th of April (Adding alot more time this contest)

You can send me the pictures of your UNPAINTED model anywhere before hand or in between of the dates listed above.


The Rules

1. You must paint your own model, commission painted pieces DO NOT count!

2. Any futuristic or fantasy game system's pieces can be used.

3. Creativity is encouraged.

4. Model must be completely painted, no half painted models.

5. Have fun with what you are painting.

6. Converted models are accepted but not necessary. Conversions will not be taken into account as far as best painted results. Those voting, please only vote on painting skill, not conversion work.

7. Those in charge of the contest as well as the admins and moderators reserve the right to remove any contest entry we feel violates any or all of these rules.



Entries will be voted on. We will open a special forum for people to post their entries, and there will be a poll at the top for everyone to choose their favorite. TWO votes per person, and yes you can vote for yourself.


Send me the pictures of your model that you will be painting (BEFORE you paint it) with the BT contest page behind your model, or a thumbs up, ect. The model must be paint free. All model entries MUST be a "non vehicle single miniature." NO exceptions.


Contest prizes will be provided for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd placements. BITZJUNKIE will be providing prizes for the contest. Prizes will be posted shortly.

There will be a max of 15 entries. This is on a first come first serve bases.

You can reserve your spot now, just send me the picture of your model.


Feel free to PM me with any questions, and I will get back with you as soon as I can.
Thanks so much!

Chris

No it's not. The models that were painted last painting contest that did not have a poll will automatically be put in here without taking up a slot. Thanks!

Sure! Well, there were two entries finished last contest, and one slot reserved already on this one. So that makes three. But I was not going to count those two that are all ready done towards reserved spots. Thanks!

Ok, go ahead and start painting! And people can still join in the contest, they just might not have as much time as the other guys. I will post the pictures of the models that are going to be painted this contest at about 8:45. Good luck everybody! Thanks!
