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 May 2013. 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 June 30th.

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.

Please keep the photo editing to a minimum. A border or colour balance is fine but if too much is done then it casts doubt over how much of the paint job is real. If need be put the unedited photo in your gallery and link to it from there, thanks.

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!

After taking a few months off, I decided to switch gears and get back to my Warhammer roots. So I painted up, Throgg, the Troll King. He is a 28mm miniature, mounted on a 40mm base. He is painted with GW, P3, and Vallejo paints.

Heres the every so cheerful Cherubael from Inquisitor by GW. 
He's a 54mm Figures and has been painted with Vallejo Model Colour, metallics are from Vallejos real metal range with a burnt umber wash to dull them down a bit. 

This is also the first figure I've exclusively used  Vallejo washes on. I'm very  pleased with their 'dark skin tone' wash.

I also think I've finally managed to find a nice style for basing thats not to hard to use with gaming pieces. 

There's some more views of him in my gallery if anyone's interested.

This is Candy & Cola for the game Super Dungeon Explore. Produced by SodaPop Miniatures & Cool-Mini-Or-Not, it is 28mm in scale. The colour scheme, based on Reiq's depiction of SodaPop's mascot (urls: 1, 2), is painted with Vallejo and Army Painter paints. The flagstone flooring was self-made with Shelley's epoxy putty. The katakana characters were done by hand.

A "confused general" (cf the DBA cover image!) by Bend Sinister. Mostly Vallejo paints and Citadel washes, the temporary fortifications behind him are from Baueda, the rest of the basing materials mostly by GaleForce and Army Painter.

Not really intended for play, but could be used as a God in HOTT.

I didn't post anything last month because I've been busy working on Space Hulk for quite a while. I'm only posting pics of a few of the terminators but you can check out all the gene stealers that I finished as well by clicking one of the pics and browsing the image gallery.

These were painted using Anita's Acrylic Craft Paint and Army Painter Quickshade Strong Tone. Finished with a matte spray.

Since I am trying to finish my copy of MoM I did not paint anything in a good quality. Here is the quickly painted Shoggoth. I mounted it on a 60mm base and added a megnet to the base and metal foil to the MoM base. No I can use it for MoM and other games.

Board Game: Dystopian Wars


This is a Covenant of Antarctica, Aristotle Class, Battleship for the game Dystopian Wars, by Spartan Games.

It's painted in a mix of Army Painter and Vallejo paints/washes.

I've was under the pump last month to get my fleet painted up for this - I've got some games coming up and want to be able to field a painted army (for one of the first times ever).

I've also made a Sea Board for the game as well - so it's been a rather productive month - at least on the painting front!

Here is the rest of my fleet:

And last but not least, my Epicurus Class Sky Fortress...


Finally - here's a bit of a blurry shot of the sea board and some minis...

This is a 25mm miniature from Ground Zero Games. Painted with Vellajo & Foundry paints, Vellojo inks and GW washes.

The base was originally hexagonal with flagstones sculpted onto the hex so to get it to fit onto a round metal washer (for better stability on the game board) I sculpted more flagstones around it and tried to get them to fit the pattern of the original casting.

This is one of the few miniatures I have painted and no longer have. I gave this to a friend, who is a big Conan fan (and likes Age of Conan: The Strategy Board Game) for his birthday.
