Dear All

I want to do a proposal to all of you.... what do you thing if we do a Mithril Painters league? the idea is promove mithril miniatures and try the people paint their miniatures. we can include more themes and diferent contest like for example:

"Best single miniature" (can accept conversions using mithril miniatures parts)
"Best Diorama" (no need explain to much about this)
'best Mithril unit" (5 or more miniatures)
.......????

All people who want to participate must put 10-15 euros (for a hole year so he has the right to participate in all contest inside this year). this money is going to help to pay the Forum expenses.
All month we celebrate these contest....choose the best work by theme...and the end of the year....the people choose the best one from the winners!
We can talk with mithril.ie....may be they can accept...the final winner...has the right to decide his own mithril miniature? like the fellowship members but without  votes hehehe ....If they don't accept....with part of the money we are going to put for "inscription" we can buy a mithril award to the winner? ...
We can do a pull, and let the people decide who is the winner! We can talk with Mithril.ie to show the "competition" in their web...and another forums.... to give more live to this project/Forum!

Is only one idea....let me know what do you thing....come on guys!!!!!....big_smile

Where I should send this participation fee..... I will be in painters league this year....

Re: Painters League

Hello Thingol! Glad you wish to participate ^^
We ended simplifing everything so it's actually free because there is not a prize and it is just about sharing and encouraging people around to paint a little bit.

I am also wondering about the low levels of participation 6-8 people painting and maybe 10 voters... Should we share this idea over at the mithril forums/Michael? so maybe then we could reach a little bit more participation?

No one answered to those questions ;_(

Anyway, time has come for the third edition of this wonderfabulous contest.... let's see what dictates our lucky dice throw:
Sooo the dice went for a 6 and 6 is:

6. Black is the absence of colour, or the Nazgûl month
League 03 - 02 March 2015 - 05 April 2016

Brief:
There is an entire month to participate and we have a couple of weeks to choose our miniature, which should be any form of incarnation of ONE of the nine Nazgûl. Since this time each and every model will be a Nazgûl, it does not matter whether it is mounted or not since both forms will be valid and it will be easier to compare all the entries. Also the idea behind this edition is to work with dark colours, it's not necessary to paint everything black, just think about the general aura a Nazgûl is meant to have....

Mechanics:
It's free to participate, you just need to be a member of MMP.
As always we demand to have a pic of the starting point (clean metal or just with primer on, or green stuff/putty visible), at least one picture more with the painting process started and then a final shot of the finished work.
A thread for all participants will be opened in a couple of weeks for they to start posting their pictures and work.
Once the deadline is reached a new thread with a voting poll will be opened for every member to participate.

And there it goes! Who is in??

Edited: Adding and extending explanations of the contest mechanics.

Re: Painters League

@orc, Only Nazgûl admitted, in any of their forms. But your proposition gaves me an idea for another month... something about ghosts and skeletons!!

C'mon join us and feel the fear and the cold of those nine condemned kings!!

Re: Painters League

I would like to participate with MS496 'Witch-King™ in his true form'.
Is that allowed ? As it is a Nazgul in it's true form, it must not absolutely be painted in black...altough I do not know yet what colours I would give it...

Re: Painters League

Yup gerold feel free to participate, since you are choosing a Nazgûl. The idea behind this nazgul thing is to practice black or dark colours and variations within those. This does not mean you could not paint the face in a spectral white-grey-green-blue, neither that you could paint focal points in brighter colours but you/we should stick to an overall dark scheme. wink

Re: Painters League

Sorry for not opening a new participation league 03 thread, I was delaying it intentionally because we are only 4 participants so far and I think it is a bit short on people sad sad sad ...

On the other hand I did not get any answer from people around here about moving this league idea to the mithril forums (see post #53 and #54 a little bit upwards).
So seeing how is doing this third league and because  of the lack of interest/low participation I think I will move forward and try to organize something there with the hope to reach more people than on this beloved mmp pages.

Re: Painters League

Is this still happening? I've been a bit busy elsewhere of late with other projects, but if we are still on (all 4 or 5 of us smile) I will select a suitable Nazgul and get cracking wink.

Re: Painters League

Well, here's a picture of my starting miniature  (even still in blister)

Click to close

But I can not paint it black. The W-K in its true form should have a pale shiny color I think.

Re: Painters League

. . .you can choose a dwarf and give him a yellow colour scheme. Everything is ad absurdum here . . .
