I'm merely keeping the seat warm.

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 be from January 2010. The contest will end on February 28th.

2) You are the artist. 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.

Prizes:

Unfortunateley I'm reliant on tips to offer decent prizes at the moment as I don't have a huge amount of geekgold.

Any tips received will awarded 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.

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!

The images will be arranged alphabetically by the name of the game entry.

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 realize this entry is a bit late, and I certainly don't expect to win. But I was invited to participate and I just thought I'd show off a conversion I did last month.

I haven't really done any minis painting in about 7 years since I had to go back into the workforce. I'm not really that quick at it, and I kind of have to wait for my "Muse" to hit me. I've mostly been doing gaming terrain and painting models with my son. Much of my spare time is spent playing games every weekend and taking care of elderly parents. This was the first time I've picked up a paintbrush for quite a while.

We went to Mag-Con in December and there were some Blood Bowl and Warhammer games going on. Someone commented they had been looking for the elusive female orc mini and had not located one.

So I made one. She started out as an Ork Cheerleader from Blood Bowl. I cut off her pom poms and I just added some bits I had laying about (the shield is GW for sure, the sword I am not certain about, possibly Reaper or I may have just cut it off a mini I had a long time ago). I considered putting on some clothing, but decided to keep her breast tassles for an armor bonus.

She's slated to be in a Warhammer game Saturday, and she just might be used in D&D (if only for giggles)!



 


This is a Blood Bowl Ork Cheerleader I converted into a fighter and painted. An unpainted cheerleader is set beside her for comparison. We call her "Boopsie". She is fanatically full of team spirit and ready to take on anyone who doesn't cheer for them!

 

(I realized I had forgotten to take a photo of the back and then reread that you are allowed *2* pics. Sorry this isn't against any background, just my messy desk at work.)

Hey, there's boobies! Maybe Boopsie will make the front page!

First miniature I've painted in years. Quite pleased with how well it turned out. Just wish I had some glue to do the base.
