2007 Halloween Painting Contest
Posted 08 October 2007 - 09:32 AM
Weigh your chances, enter wisely. Enter as many times as you like, but only one entry per user will be eligible for the final vote.
By the way, if the last contest was any indication, voters will be considering creativity and execution of theme, not just 'leet painting skillz.
This thread will be locked November 1st (1 minute after midnight, CST, in fact). Then our staff will pick the best 10 entrants after we've had a chance to sleep off our candy binge. Then you vote on those 10. And three lucky people will get a lovely gift certificate.
1st: $100 Gift Certificate
2nd: $50 Gift Certificate
3rd: $25 Gift Certificate
Reaper reserves the right to remove entries if deemed inappropriate, but the general nudity rules will be lifted for this contest.
Inappropriate in this case includes a non-Reaper figure or something that can't be justified as Halloweenish.
Photoshopping your entry is strictly prohibited. Even something simple like adding a logo is prohibited.
Enter as many times as you like, but only one entry per user will be eligible for the final vote.
Like with the ReaperCon Painting Contest, a player may enter a Warlord or CAV unit and call it a single entry.
The certificates will be redeemable through the Asylum Online Store.
Reaper can clarify and amend rules at will.
Please attach your entries using the forum uploading feature. We want to make sure they're visible at all times.
Please keep critiques and any other chatter to yourselves within the thread. Any non-entry posting can be deleted at any time.
Questions and clarifications found here.

Figures used: 14226 Sir Danel, 2992 Pumpkins and Jack o' Lanterns, 3 skeleton archers and 2 skeleton warriors. The hardest part was carving the face on the one pumpkin...the jack o' lanterns in the pack were way to big to use so unfortunately they got sidelined. You can see the obvious conversion bits, both weapons removed, right hand weapon replaced with one from the warlord weapons pack and the left hand was drilled to hold the pumpkin stem. Taking his head off was a bit challenging...needless to say it was slightly mis-shapen once removed. If nothing else it was fun to do the conversion and got me some other ideas for next year!

There you go.
The Sorceress is Laurana (02621) calling forth a necro adept.
The headstones are from the Cryptbats (1409, 1410)

This is actually a large diarama. I could not get the camera angles to show the detail of everything that I wanted to show. I will see if I can get some better angles but I am afraid that they will be too far away for any good pics. Second one is reverse angle. I removed the ghost and put back the Worm Corpse. This angle gives me the creeps.
I hope you guys like these.

Took the 72mm Christmas Sophie and dressed her for trick or treating. Her sword is 'dressed up' as a broom to round out her sexy witch costume.

Unfortunately due to life... and apparently mold issues I was unable to do what I want for this comp. In the interest of seeing how she does however... I present Halloween Sophie.
Good luck to everybody!

"Ahhh, this will make a nice addition to my collection."
Woohoo, I made it! After a few days of technical difficulties, I was able to finish her up and post her.
I did a couple of little conversions: I took off her bat and added a severed head, and also swapped out her sword for a more ceremonial knife. Here is a link to the original if you'd like to see:
Happy Halloween and good luck to everyone.

...or 'This is why the best familiars have nine lives.'
There is a bit of conversion for Selmarina, a little sculpting, that sort of thing. Apologies for the over-exposed 2nd shot -- it was the only way I could get the wall and floor to show up decently. Enjoy!
There are 5 web albums there on Google+, over 600 miniatures so far. Feel free to browse!
