Well I'm new to this forum (and 10mm models in general) but I'm super excited about this competition.
Just got my first shipment of fantasy minis in the post a couple of months ago so I'll have to choose something special to paint up. A few questions though, for the army category do they have to be based mutiple troops to a base? I am finishing an amazon/beastman army for a game called shadowsea where they have to be single based, so I've put them on washers. Also any advice for taking photos of models. My photography skills are sadly lacking and they always end up reflecting the flash too much or being too dark without it.

First of all....
A very warm welcome to 'the mad house'  Grin Grin luna !
But we are all very friendly...honestly !!

I'll have to leave it to others to point you in the right direction regarding your questions for the competition.
As far as your photo's are concerned.....Do you have a tripod that you can clamp your camera to ?
This could well be essential, so you can take pictures in natural light....As you'll  have to use longer exposures to stop camera 'shake'.

Using 'flash' close up is a very 'hit and miss' affair I'm afraid. Smiley

Cheers - Phil

Alvin, Theodore, Simon are the three male chipmunks, Britanny, Janette and Elanor are the Chipettes (two years of being subjected to those G*d awful movies have paid off)!  Cheesy

can i use the 15mm fantasy range that has been moved to minibits?

Just bumping this up as it seems to have been missed...Or to rephrase the question, do Minibits 15mm fantasy figures count as Pendraken?
