Frankly, I find it hard enough to make the time and find the mojo to paint stuff I want to paint. The idea of painting something that's just for the competition ... ugh!

Some very worthy winners this year and many others shaded out by the narrowest margins and all of the entries are ones that the competitors can be proud of ... yes, fsn, even the hedges !

I don't think we'd be looking to put together a pack for each category, it would probably be easier to have a new category just for these special packs.  I don't know at this point whether it would be new sculpts or existing ones, but we could try it for the 2019 competition as an experiment to see what the uptake was like.  We'd pick out a selection of sculpts from a range and put them into a pack that we'd sell on the site for 1-2.  

We could then do a different period each year, either using a recent range release or having a vote each year on what range people would like to see.

A new category would be best i think. Just being honest here, if it was something that didn't interest me, or that i couldn't use in a game, i wouldn't buy it just for being able to enter. One of the main things that makes the competition so good, is being able to enter something that you painted over the year. Not everyone can paint at the same pace or has the same amount of time!

Thirded

I really enjoy the variety on show in the competition Smiley Smiley

We all struggled to allocate our votes this year, imagine how much harder it will be when all entries in the category are the same figures At wits' end At wits' end At wits' end

Don't get me wrong, Phil's stuff is brilliant and very detailed and researched (just painted some ancient spanish - hanging rings on back of Caetra!) But they are dead on 10mm and show proper human proportions.
Clib's are amazing, detailed and also a joy to paint but are probably knocking on 12mm and are more in style of modern wargame sculpts which allows for more room for detail.
Also Clib's ranges have several sculpts will Phil will have 2 at best because Leon is tight  Cheesy.

Well, I'll be hornswoggled !...I didn't know that Clib's figures were a bit bigger.  Smiley

Cheers - Phil
