Taking part is easy:

1) Add the game of the miniature you painted as an item to the list.

2) Add the picture of your painted miniature in the comment section for that game.

(use the format [imageid=xxxxxmedium] where xxxxx is the id of the picture)

That way people will be able to better judge your work. Medium should be sufficient please do not use large.

Rules:

1) The image you submit must have been uploaded during April 2012. Gallery images are ok but submitted images are preferred, as they've gone through the geek mod process it guarantees the picture quality and it's also easier to check the submission date. The contest will end on May 31st.

2) You are the artist. Please do not submit miniatures painted by someone else.

3) One entry per person. You may, however, use up to two pictures of your entry to the front and back of the miniature.

4) The winner will be the picture with the most thumbs. You can thumb as many as you like.

5) If you can; include the make of the mini, scale and what paints you used in your entry.

Prizes:

Any tips received will awarded as prizes as follows:

1st place: 50%
2nd place: 37.5%
3rd place: 12.5%

So if the tip total comes to 40 geekgold 1st will get 20, 2nd 15 and 3rd 5 etc.

Geekgold is also given for honourable mentions so even if you don't feel confident about winning you might still get a prize

I'll round down tips and put the remainder towards future prizes.

Judging at the end of the month and winners will appear in the next months list.

1st place will now also receive an exclusive microbadge! Microbadge: Golden Turtleback Painted Miniature Monthly Contest winner

Please give this geeklist a thumb to help get it to the front page. The more contestants the better!

And don't forget to click on the images you like and give the actual images thumbs up as well!

Finally got round to finishing my Dire Wolves. There is a 5th one but I left it out for the sake of symmetry.

Finished off my demons for DooM, affectionately known as "pinkies" from the original incarnation of the video game.
Board Game: Doom: The Boardgame


Painted with mostly GW paints, except for the pink, which was a blend of P3 Carnal Pink, and a plain and simple tube of "Brilliant Magenta" Artists' acrylic from the local craft store.

The Bloody Reaver is one of the most challenging minis I ever painted beacuse of the sheer amount of detail it has. Mostly used citadel, tamiya and vallejo paints.

Painted with GW Foundation and Vallejo colors. This is one Hex Hunter from a squad of ten [eventually]. Sword was painted to look crystalline and the metal in the armor is supposed to look copper-ish, using NMM.

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

I finally finished this. I had been on a major slowdown. I think I started it 8 months ago but had it keep getting set aside for other projects...

I like the way these turned out from the set.

I started painting the Cthulhu idols to get some practice in. This is my first attempt at dry brushing. Still using cheap paint I got at Michael's, but I did upgrade that for my next project.
