Hey, Leon!

How about next year we have a category for converted Pendraken figures?
But please make sure you invite Atavus to be amongst the judges!  Cheesy

Ooh, second that, provided no-one who's any good is allowed to enter Cheesy

Seriously, that's a really great idea Thumbs up

I think a hell of a lot of the entries in the comp are already conversions in one form or another (part of what makes it such a strong competition)

Cuold be nice to separete the conversions (who always have a bonus of originality) from regular paint.

Then conversions fight each other.

It's certainly a good idea, although all of the categories allow conversions already.  We'd have to weigh up whether we could support another category with prizes as well, both on our own side and from other companies, as we've already pencilled in a 'Warband' category for the new rules/figures.

When you look at the size of the prize (20 plus goodies to the value of a further 20-30) you are being incredibly generous for quite a small investment by us entrants.
And I note that in the "Why I enjoy the competition" post, little has been made of the prizes.
I wonder if you could halve the value of the prizes and still have as many entrants.

It's 20 Pendraken to the winner, 10 Pendraken to the runner-up, so there's 210 from us each year.  Plus 20-30 from the third-party company, so another 140-210 from them as well.  The prizes from us are easy enough, as long as it brings more interest in, but getting more prizes from other people is the struggle each year, as I've already tapped up most of the 10mm oriented companies!

There's prizes?
I thought winner just got a hearty handshake, maybe a pat on the back unless some of the chaps think that might be too much touching,  three loud Huzzahs and maybe a complimentary sherry in the forum bar

Having the medal(s) on your profile is something to be proud of.  Best part of the prize i think.   Smiley

Have to admit that they are the motivation for me.
If I didn't qualify for them one year, it would make me doubly motivated to do better next.
