Cool! I started prepping the StoneHawk dude tonight for this. Really cool mini's. I bought mine originally from the CMON shop. I think I've kinda been coasting a little bit in my painting and between the base for my RBG entry and this guy I am looking forward to sinking my teeth into something again. Good luck to everyone!

Also, if anyone needs or wants a swap I have a couple mini's I could swap. I have...

Sister Bedlam
Tangent (??) I think that's her name. Chick with a couple guns.
Can't remember the name of the dude, but he looks like a Blood Bowl quarterback.

If anyone wants to swap-a-roo I am not too picky. But if Warhammergrimmace wants first crack, he gets it 'cause I owe him some mini's.

Nameless
16-09-2010, 07:53 AM
will try to find time for this, as I never painted a PC mini..

I don't have any of those minis so thinking of getting one but the pulp shop says:

"Pulp City Shop is Offline.
Holiday Break! We'll be back online in the first week of September!"


...That's 2 weeks ago...

Is this simply a minis painting contest, or a minis/auction type contest? Sorry that i just don't understand.

just a normal painting contest - only the charity contest involved selling your minis - all our other contests mean you keep your entries!!

That's reallly good news !!!!

Darklord
21-09-2010, 08:00 PM
Ok Folks I can finally confirm the prizes to you and theres some nice stuff!

1st: Giant Hadron (as yet unreleased and stands 12cm tall!) + Dr Tenebrous

2nd: Le Murtiple (3 miniatures) , Silverager + Dr Tenebrous

3rd: Skyline + Dr Tenebrous

4th Jade Hawk + Dr Tenebrous

5th Dr Tenebrous

There will also be 5 more copies of Dr Tenebrous up for grabs. These will be awarded by myself to entries I think are deserving but may not necessarily be the best painted - its more about effort for these ones. Entrants that have already won a prize wont be eligible for this special award. In the event of there being less than 10 entrants an excess will be awarded randomly to voters.


Hopefully these prizes have been worth waiting for!

leonmallett
21-09-2010, 09:30 PM
definitely time to think about some more entries (I have two in mind).

Bubba Ho-Tep
22-09-2010, 04:18 AM
Posted my first entry. This is officially my first entry into any painting contest.

ScottRadom
22-09-2010, 05:28 AM
Way to go Bubba Ho-Tep! It's a fun thing to do! If you like, I'd reccomend posting your mini in the discuss area if you'd like some feedback.

I got mine prepped and I am working on the base tonight as well. I like this Stonerhawk mini!

Darklord
22-09-2010, 08:46 AM
nice one Bubba - first one is always nerve wracking a little but great fun - we have plenty more comps for you to come as well!

leonmallett
22-09-2010, 09:28 AM
Darklord - I have not entered a WAMP contest before, so time for more questions. :redface:

If I read the rules right, I can enter minis that I have shown elsewhere before, is that correct?

Or must they be previously unseen?

From the rules I was thinking the first option is correct.

Leon.

leonmallett
22-09-2010, 10:06 AM
Put my first two entries up. :)

Hi! I'm new to the board, been drawn here by an announcement on the Pulp City Boards. I got a quick question, just to make sure, "new work" means I have to prepare somethign especially for the contest, I can't enter a mini I finished earlier, right?

Hi John welcome to Wamp.
To answer your question it needs to b work either done for this contest or work not shown elsewhere

NeatPete
07-10-2010, 06:48 PM
I have my guy prepped and I took him over to my buddies while playnig chess to see if some inspiration hit me and it did. Oh this will be awesome!

I'll be using "dead eye" and basing him on a beer can plyth and it will serve as the trophy for my fatasy football league. It will be passed from one winner to the next each year. Can't wait to get going on him.

Darklord
07-10-2010, 09:06 PM
Ok folks there has been a few queries regartding the new work rule in the contests.

To clarify I will expand the rule slightly tomake it clearer. The new rule reads as:

All entries must be previously unseen work You may once the piece is entered display the work outside of Wamp. You are also free to post WIP shots if you wish

Vern
07-10-2010, 10:25 PM

Hey KolonelK, I don't see your pic in the Pulp City gallery. You may want to double check to make sure it posted.

Unfortunately the shop/site was hacked. Until the shop is back up, I understand that orders can be done through the email listed on the contacts page.

Temporary ordering info from the PC Forum (link (http://forum.pulp-city.com/viewtopic.php?p=16302#p16302)):


Hey Guys, if you need the fix until we get a new or updated store up,
here's the way to do it:
1/ Choose items from below.
2/ Send an email with your needs at: shop(at)pulpmonsters.com including a PayPal address.
3/ We'll send you a confirmation with the invoice and shipping quote (assume it's around 4.99 Euro for most medium boxes, 2.99 for small and up to 8.99 for huge, orders at 120 Euro get free shipping as usual).

The store had been severely ransacked with the last wave, so some items are missing but still a lot there:
PPME01V Villains: Mourn 1 Miniature, 2 Cards € 7,99
PPME02M Minion: Sentry Bots (2) 2 Miniature, 1 Card € 9,99
PPME03HV Heroes/Villains: Chimp-Chi (low stock) 1 Miniature, 2 Cards € 7,99
PPME05H Heroes: Six Feet Under 1 Miniature, 1 Card € 13,99
PPME07V Villains: Rook & Francis Gator 2 Miniatures, 3 Cards € 14,99
PPME08H Heroes: Blood Rose & Trail 2 Miniatures, 3 Cards € 14,99
PPME10H Dead Eye (No Vigilantes) 1 Miniatures, 2 Cards € 7,99

I actually tried a little freehand for my entry for this comp. That is a big step for me, as I am terrified o doing freehand stuff. I can barely write me name so others can read it.

Vern
23-10-2010, 04:17 PM
Well, I'm done & uploaded - bearing in mind I had done anything since July, it's a bit ropey http://serve.mysmiley.net/confused/confused0065.gif (http://www.mysmiley.net) http://serve.mysmiley.net/happy/happy0055.gif (http://www.mysmiley.net) but fun to do (& it's nice to pick up the old brushes again)

luCiPHer
25-10-2010, 01:19 PM
I have a total of 6 Miniatures ready, but no Camera here at the moment.
I should get a new one in a few days, probably within the deadline, maybe 1 or 2 days later.
Would it still be possible to enter?

Darklord
25-10-2010, 02:14 PM
has to be in by the deadline. Though Subscribers do get 3 days extra so that may be an option for you

ScottRadom
25-10-2010, 04:47 PM
I gotta do some touchups and then take some pics. Playing around with this new camera is SUPER intimidating! Photography really is an art of it's own. Sigh.

leonmallett
27-10-2010, 07:27 PM
Finally got my replacement entries in.

To Darklord - when can I post pics of my entries outside of the contest so as not to run afoul of the rules (:redface: it would be supremely embarassing to do that twice...)?

28-10-2010, 09:00 PM
It would appear I have got the Photo Title and Photo Description the wrong way round on my Pulp City entry :redface:. Am I OK to edit it now the deadline has passed? or should I leave it as it is?

Darklord
28-10-2010, 09:05 PM
sure go ahead
