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

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

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.

Let's make the following prize: Just print the totty forum in book format and send it to the winner of conversions categopry. Cheap and interesting.

Prizes? I thought we did it for honor and glory!    Thumbs up

I think a conversion category is a nice idea, but it will be a pity that all the entries with some kind of conversion must be relegated to thin category. Im saying this because I think I have not presented to the competition a single base without some kind of modification... I like to give my "personal touch" to the minis  Cheesy

However, if we give the same flexibility as the other categories (a barbarian warlord mounted on bison could be entered in "Single base", "Mounted" or "Fantasy" categories) I really think it will be a VERY interesting category  Undecided

Cheers!

I don't think you'd "have" to enter conversions in a conversion category but rather if the conversion was the major element: "hey look at my funky new TECHNique; see what I can do with PHILer" sort of thing; it could go in a separate category.  Smiley

Obviously, a heavy conversion should be "oriented" to this category.

Maybe, think it should largely be left to the individual.

I think the conversion idea, if judging on the discussion so far on this topic, may prove a minefield of misunderstanding and uncertainty as to where to post entries.

Also, the painting competition at present is judged upon the painting and presentation of the entry, not if it is converted or unique. At least that is my understanding. So entries involving conversions or additional sculpting are just slotted into the existing categories and thus help to keep the judge's job simple.

It's a good suggestion, don't get me wrong.  Smiley

Unlikely to do that as a conversion can involve using parts from another manufacturers' figures.
