'Eavy Metal style challenge 1.
« on: October 23, 2018, 04:23:20 pm »
Hello!

This is the place where we talk about our new challenge - the 'Eavy Metal style painting challenge #1!

So I thought this might be an interesting idea and extra motivation to get your painting skills on point!

Basically we run a few painting challenges a year, this time it's all around emulating the 'Eavy Metal style as it's really iconic for anyone that knows anything about Warhammer  :D

RULES:

1) You can paint as many models as you want as long as they are a single entry but I would recommend a single miniature. One person can only enter once.
2) You need to post a picture of the unpainted entry with a sign in the background saying "Demon Slayers Forum 'EM Challenge". If you've started painting - you can enter as long as the entry is mostly unpainted.
3) The "before" and "after" pictures of your entries must be posted in this thread.
4) You can post a maximum of 4 pictures of your finished entry.
5) All the entered models must be a product of GW, FW or sculpted. No third party models please.
6) It's highly suggested to have your entry painted in Eavy Metal style as the challenge is all about Eavy Metal but if you want to stick to your own style - thats absolutely fine.
7) The miniature has to have a finished base to be judged.


The results of the judging will be disclosed on April 3rd.

We will have a panel of 3 judges, all of them being ex Eavy Metal painters so they most definately know what the "Eavy Metal" style is!

Here are the judges:

Matthew Kennedy

Martin Peterson

Stuart Thomas


 
The deadline is March 31st 2019.

To enter you have to:

1) Post a picture of the unpainted model with a sign in the background saying "Demon Slayers Forum 'EM Challenge"

2) Post the final pictures with the completed paintjob.

The Prize is founded by myself and I wanted to keep it GD related so the winner gets a ticket for the Warhammer Fest (and the Golden Demon)!

Kind regards,
Mamikon

Hi all,
Here is my entry before painting. A Blood Angel Legion Praetor in Tartaros Terminator armour.
Excuse all the blu-tac, I usually paint my minis in parts and assemble at the end.

Great stuff guys, can't wait to see more!
