Title: Pendraken Painting Competition 2013!
Post by: Leon on 09 January 2013, 08:03:39 PM
(http://i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l575/PendrakenMiniatures/PaintLogo2013.jpg)

Last year we had a massive 320 entries, so having another competition for 2013 was always guaranteed!  This year we hope it will be even bigger and better, with more entries and more prizes!

As always, the competition will be running throughout February, with the closing deadline being at midnight on Thurs 28th Feb.  That gives everyone loads of time to get their orders in and get their entries painted up!

One big change for this year is the allowance of more than one image per entry, which is increased to 2.  This is to help out those folk who don't have professional images of their figures, as you can now enter a couple of pictures to give the judges a better view of your entry.

This year the 7 categories will remain the same. with only a few tweaks here and there.  We've included the amount of foot and cavalry allowed per base, to allow a bit more scope for your entries there.  The size of the Open - Single Base category has increased as well, allowing anything up to a 100x100mm size base/diorama to be entered.  Finally, the second Open category is now classed as 'Army' and can include both figures and scenery, so we're looking for some impressive setups in this one.

Categories:

Foot - Pre-20th C. - Min: 3 / Max: 16 figures on a single base, and pre-1900.
Foot - 20th C. - Min: 3 / Max: 16 figures on a single base.
Mounted - Min: 3 / Max: 10 figures on a single base.
Vehicle - Single vehicle on or off base.
Fantasy & Sci-Fi - Anything Fantasy or Sci-Fi oriented, maximum base size of 60x60mm.
Open - Single Base - Anything which doesn't fit into the other categories, with a max base size of 100x100mm.
Open - Army! - Armies, Dungeons, whole table setups, anything!

If you're unsure which category to put your entry in, let us know what it is, and we'll point you in the right direction!

Rules

- Firstly, all figures must be Pendraken.  Conversions are allowed, but only on our figures.

- You must be a Forum member to enter, but other than that, everyone is welcome!

- You may enter as many times as you like but each entry is only allowed 2 images (except for the 'Army!' category, see below).  You can also combine several shots into a montage if you wish, but still limited to two overall images.  If you have any difficulty posting pics, they can be emailed to Pendraken and we'll put them up for you.  We'll also be linking some good photo tutorials closer to the start date.

- The 'Open - Army!' category may have 5 photo's, as it's difficult to cover a whole army with just a single photo!  You can also still put several images together into a montage if you would prefer that.

- All entries must be your own work, and have not been entered into any online competitions before.

- Entries should have been completed in the last 12 months.

- You can post WIP photo's if you wish, and you can also post extra photo's of your work elsewhere on the Forum.  These will not count towards your competition entry.

- The winners will be decided by a team of judges (to be announced very soon!).  Entries will be judged on the painting first and foremost, but remember that effective basing can make a nice entry look even better.

- Competition threads will be created on the opening date, purely for your entries.

- Pendraken may use your pics in future promo/marketing, catalogue covers or web pics.  Entering gives your permission for your pics to be used.




This year we've got a huge amount of prizes lined up, both from Pendraken and others from some very generous companies, and we'll be announcing those in the next week, so keep an eye out for that!  Remember, the opening day for entries is 1st Feb, which gives you just enough time to get any figures ordered, grab your brushes and get busy!  We've seen some great work displayed on the Forum over the past 12 months, so we're hoping to see some of it making an appearance in the Competition!

If there's any questions, let us know!

Coincidentally, Timecast are sponsoring one of the categories, so using their bulidings in the 'Army!' category will be fine this year!

How about 100% sculpted 10mm models. As in, if I sculpted (as I'm getting better) using one of the Pendraken Dollys and painted them.

(This could be time to get on with my 10mm war hammer Fant and my Anglo-Zulu wars stuff!)

I'd also be interested in the answer to this.

Also you say that Pendraken figures can be used if converted, how about converted vehicles - I've converted a 1920's/30's truck into a bus and would like to use it in the single base category.

Hi,

If it is not too late, how about considering adding a category for a war games unit? At the moment, you have categories for a single stand and whole armies, which leaves single units such as for Black Powder, Lasalle, Warmaster etc. hanging a bit in the air. Just a thought.

Title: Re: Pendraken Painting Competition 2013!
Post by: Vulpine on 10 January 2013, 07:11:28 AM
I would have thought we could paint them or at least finish them starting from now. I would be a tad miffed if people just wiped dust of models they painted long ago and put them in, especially as you can enter as many as you like. Otherwise I could just photograph my hole collection?

42 isn't that the open section?

Grumpy, surly a converted vehicles is fine?

As far as my request, I wasn't expecting extra credits for the sculpt (as its a painting opportunity) just the option to do one of my own.

Leon, you sure it shouldn't be one entry per person? I have 0 experience in this,  but won't people just pile things in?

Finally, what about 10mm skirmish type basing? For example a squad of 10, 10mm, Pre 20c all on 1cm circular/square/hex bases?
Title: Re: Pendraken Painting Competition 2013!
Post by: fred. on 10 January 2013, 07:47:35 AM
There has never been a requirement that they are painted in the Feb of the comp. it would be a bit hard to paint a whole army in a month.

While you can enter lots of entries in the same category, this is probably self defeating, as at best  you are likely to split the judges votes. If you can't choose your best minis how will the judges do so? Winners in the past haven't been the people who spammed a category with lots of photos.

Single based figures are a bit of a problem - they don't really fit in any of the categories, I have had problems with this in the past.

This is the 3rd or 4th time Leon has run the painting comp and the rules have worked pretty well in the past.

Well it seems a bit bloody stupid to me that you can enter something painted yonks ago, seems to defeat the purpose but fine. I'll enter stuff I painted last year, saves me painting anything now.

Think Leon may have accidently, in his flu induced fever, missed a caviet
Last year the cut off was:
a) Nothing that has been entered in previous competitions here.
b) Has to have been painted since last year...

Well, that's what I'll be sticking too myself, although last year I only entered stuff I painted in February!!!!  ;D

Post by: nikharwood on 10 January 2013, 10:04:12 AM
I'd echo Forbes's thoughts here really - in the past two competitions, in which I've had the honour of being a judge, these rules have been fine: there is no stipulation to have painted an entry recently, only that it has not been in any online comp previously; in my experience, most people's painting improves over time - with experience and the use of newly-learned techniques - and so most people will choose something recent anyway.

Multiple entries into single categories from the same person will, as Forbes notes, make it harder to pick one...and runs the risk of 'flooding' - which can be a distraction and move attention elsewhere; as a judge, I am looking to award my votes to separate entries for places in categories...not one individual.

Also - and this is important to me at least - in the spirit of Pendraken and this wonderful forum, I'll be more excited by entries that I haven't seen before rather than just another pic of something I've already appreciated. So...if you are going to enter stuff you've already painted & posted here, I'd encourage you to take new pics of it - on-table perhaps, or from a different angle etc. Similarly, I love to see entries from new ranges as that seems to me to be in the spirit of an annual competition somehow.

I'd also encourage my fellow forumites to remember that this is a competition that is free to enter, designed to be fun, designed to be an encouragement for everyone to take part and an incentive to get painting, and that the spirit of this is that it should be an opportunity to recognise everyone's efforts - and delight in the quality that is shared.

It's also a chance for more people to come and play with us here - in the past couple of years we have had entrants who came initially for the competition - and have stayed; this is clearly a good thing - more 10mm converts!

Nope, as long as they've been painted in the past 12 months, they're good to go.

It'd be the 'Open - Single Base' category for those, but you'd be competing with some bigger entries.

It's just to allow everyone chance to get something in, or to paint something new specifically for the contest if they want to.  You might have done up a couple of units in Oct/Nov which you were chuffed with, so this way you get to enter them.

To my shame I don't think I've painted anything 10mm since last years comp.

I had some rats that just missed the deadline but they definately won't be making an appearance (sooooo last year  :D )

Time to put that right (for end Feb)  ;)

Post by: andymac on 10 January 2013, 03:06:36 PM
Having read Nik's comments on the subject of entries, I completely agree with him :). 

Flooding the categories with multiple entries makes the job of the judges much harder as we have to sift through them to find the real gems.

Choose your category / categories, plan your entry, pick your figures and think about your basing (although this is a painting comp basing does play a part in the marking.  If it comes down to deciding between two entries, I will always go for the one with the better basing.).

Other than that just have a great time and enjoy your painting :D.

I'm looking forward to seeing this years entries.

Good luck to you all

Andy Mac

The winners have been spread around many people in the previous years - I think that all the winning entries have been really good. Its always slightly subjective when judging painting, but the winners have certainly been amongst the best entries in categories. I've never looked at a winning entry and thought "how did that win?" I might have ranked then very slightly differently but only amongst the top 3. Also as there are multiple judges, who all have their own opinions then I don't think popularity can come into it.

Totally agree with Fred...... :)
Yes .....It's always going to be somewhat subjective when judging something artistic....So personally, I believe it's a great idea to have a number of judges. There's more of a consensus which is great. Nothing at all to do with popularity surely ?
I thought it worked brilliantly last year, and like Fred, I can't think of any entry that was placed, which made me think...."How on earth did that win or get placed ?"

No Win.....The judges won't be entering.....None of them can paint anyway. ;) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
(Well....Some of them can, I suppose....said he grudgingly. ;))

Correct, the Judges can't enter the competition, their job is purely to judge all the entries.  All the judges have been chosen because they are skilled painters themselves, and respected folk within the wargaming community.

- Nik's well known in many circles for his painting ability, and general enthusiasm for gaming as well. 
- Andy Mac's painting is some of the best seen in 10mm, anyone who's seen his AWI work will attest to that. 
- Clibinarium is one of the best sculptors working in 10mm at the moment, and his painting's pretty darn good as well. 
- And then there's Dave...who's... well, he's Dave!  He started Pendraken 20 years ago, so we let him judge the Painting Comp.  He can actually knock out some decent paintjobs when he's got the time to do it!

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'  ;D ;D 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. :)

42 isn't that the open section?



Hi, yes, indeed  I would assume multi-base game units,  such as a warmaster unit or lasalle unit, could go into the open category. My observation is just that in that category they would be together with whole armies, dungeons, dioramas, battles etc, where they might get a bit "lost". I could imagine that game units could benefit from their own category to showcase how 10mm units look like. If expanding the categories is an issue it would be possible to consider opening the single base categories to multi-base units that are conform with a particular game system. After all, 10mm really comes into its own with larger units, rather than just single bases.

Sounds great. One question though - how about flags from other suppliers as long as it's from periods which aren't covered by Pendraken's flags range? (I'm mainly thinking of the Thirty Years' War here)

Apart from that I think I'll have to order asap, knowing shipping times from the UK to here. :)

Thanks for the quick reply! Another thing I was wondering - what's considered the standard (or maximum) base size for categories for the two Foot, the Mounted and the Vehicle categories?

There's never really been a maximum, but I'd imagine anything over 60x60mm is going to look a bit sparse?

Liitle question Leon,

I have painted a gun with 3 crew on the base, Is this in the foot 20th century category, or the open single base category???

I would guess the open, as it is not really foot, but still they are on foot  ;D

Yep, that would go in the 'Open - Single Base' category.

Hi everybody

Yes I'm quite looking forward to the painting competition this year. This will be the second time I would of entered and I thoroughly enjoyed last year.

As for entries I intend entering my ACW Union cavalry and some infantry, and then possibly paint a couple World War II of command stands.

Thanks

"hi everyone!
Sorry to write in french, but my written english is really bad (my spoken english too!!)
Only one question, are french painters allowed in the splendid painting competition?? If so, i would be happy to join you all, for the fun of it! "

You can enter each category several times if you like.  The single base can go in the Fantasy category, and then you can also enter the whole army in the Army category.

(Vous pouvez entrer chaque catégorie plusieurs fois si vous le souhaitez. La base unique peut aller dans la catégorie Fantasy, et puis vous pouvez également entrer l'armée dans la catégorie Armée.)

You don't say.
" bases simples aller dans le fantasme " could be roughly translated as " simple basics/bases go to the sexual fantasy" in French.

I went with the idea that if they are on the vehicle then they would be alright (crew/tank riders etc) which seems consist with previous years.

Leon let me know if there is a problem I will alter me entry accordingly

I had a medical half-track with a casualty and medic the other year, which I'm fairly sure had to go into open, which is why I was checking.

I'm not to bothered either way, as I am happy to add a few figures around a tank to make a diorama - or just do the tank on its own.
Title: Re: Pendraken Painting Competition 2013!
Post by: Leon on 10 February 2013, 06:54:51 PM
If you want to pop figures around the vehicle, that's fine, no bother at all, there's not really anything in the rules against it.  The Judges will be looking at the vehicle primarily though, so it comes down to whether you think it's best off in that category as a vehicle entry, or if you want to try your chances in the Open - Single Base instead? 

:-\

Let me know if you'd like them switching over.

Hello to all,
I am new in your community and I write for the first time on your blog (maybe have you already guessed it... I am French).
I paint Pendraken miniatures (and others!) for several years and I would like to participate in your painting competition.
I have two questions.
To send pictures for the competition, may I proceed by the touch REPLY of the page PENDRAKEN PAINTING COMPETITION 2013 ?
If pictures are too "heavy" to which e-mail address send them ?
I appreciate that there is another French guy on the frequency !!
Regards.

To enter a category, go into the correct thread, e.g. 'Foot - 20th C.' and then click Reply.  You can put some information about your entry, and then the picture.

If you do not have somewhere to host your pictures, send them to us here at Pendraken ( d.pengilley@btinternet.com ) and we can host them for you.


If any of our French members would like to help with the translation of that, it might be better than Google Translate!

Tu dois d'abord choisir la catégorie de ton entrée au concours, ensuite, tu appuies sur "reply".

Si tu ne sais pas comment héberger des photos sur internet, envoie un mail à Pendraken ( d.pengilley@btinternet.com ) en précisant la catégorie, ils le feront pour toi.

(traduction approximative)

All I can say is I would not want to be a judge.  I wouldn't know how in the world to differentiate amonst so many good entries.

True.....

The entrants aren't exactly making it easy for us. ~X( ~X(
AND.... (With tongue wedged firmly in cheek)....I have to say the level of bribes this year has been pathetic.
I haven't received a single one.  :'( :'( :'( ....;D ;D
No.....Don't start !!

Cheers - Phil.

That's because Nik said you were incorruptible - so we have been sending all the bribes in his direction...

I am on the other side of the pond, but drink in an Irish Pub, does that count if I buy a few for the judges and drink them here?

Have you noticed that 90% of all Irish pubs have nothing whatever to do with Ireland? I've found them as far apart as Prague and Dubai.  :d

My brushes burned!
Four entries (three of them painted in two weeks) in the first year I participate... I think it´s not all bad!  #:-S

Let's rest...

BTW, I feel a little sorry for the judges who will have to choose the winners from such masterpieces. Good luck guys!

All my entries are now in, I have painting envy - wow hetairoi! Guys, serious kit out there, love the elephants!

Good luck to all the competitors, the standard is so high this year!

I said all mine were painted during February, to a deadline, and I was wondering what I got done, so quick head count:
1 tribble and three casualties,
1 division of 1870 French Guard (2 artillery pieces, 2 machine guns, 14 crew, 1 general, 82 infantry and a sabot)
4 1870 Generals,
10 Roman Infantry
4 Roman Light cavalry
10 Saxons
4 Roman Cavalry
9 Fantasy knights
1 Dragon rider.
24 goblins.

Man it's been a slow month!  :P ;D

Good luck to one and all and the standards achieved this year have been exceptional! A great advert for 10mm minis and what can be done in 1/144th scale.

I have been consistently astounded by the quality of the painting, and the photography.  The camera is unforgiving when it comes to small scale figures, but the entries this year consistently defy it.  Well done everyone!  =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>
