What can I enter?
Anything! It can be any scale, genre, manufacturer. It can be terrain, duel, diorama,a full blown army even. BUT! Take note it must be new work. That means it must not have been shown completed anywhere. If you have shown WIP elsewhere that's fine but not completed photos!

Ooh! Great lineup there, Brett. You never know, I may just have the HF Christmas Libby finished by then, if I manage to get more rest than I've recently been getting. Can't imagine it'd win anything but if it's on time I will enter it.

If the contest is a sucess then I shall run another next year too with hopefully more sponsors!

I was considering fitting one more in, depending what I have lying around.....

Additional army challenge question - are completed models which have been posted in the Army Challenge threads still valid for WAMPed?

Question:

Say I have a GOH mini in my army for the army challenge. Can I use it in the Army challenge AND the single mini in the GOH category?

thanks.

Great work Darklord & well done in getting so many sponsors involved.
I will definitely try to enter 1 or 2 of the catergories, possibly more if I have enough time.

17-11-2010, 11:57 PM
Excellent stuff Brett and a job well done organising this one, many thanks to yourself and the sponsors. There should be a good diversity of entries in this one i`d say with ample time to get things finished, might be a good time to do something large scale for a change i think. :biggrin:

Choices, choices. One or all? I haven't made any terrain for a while, bomb ravaged Stalingrad anyone? Well done DL on all this, have you found a way of survivng with no sleep? I really don't know how you fit it all in.

Great stuff Brett, and thanks to the sponsors, should be something for everyone in there.

KittenCeleste
18-11-2010, 10:58 AM
Methinks he's training for his new arrival by taking on too much work, not sleeping and doing a fab job at it all in one go! :o

I had something planned for this, but with all the 'new' stuff in the mix, I'm not too convinced that my choice is as clear cut as I once thought. :tongue:
Might have to go do something more/new.. Either way, it's all experimenting :D

Big round of applause for getting this all together, and :hail: to our sponsors.

are you seriously considering entering each piece of your army individually?

Dysartes
18-11-2010, 08:37 PM
No, but six entries is a good starting point for that category, I'd've thought - possibly seven, given the extension due to WAMPed!

This might just have enough of a time period that I could possibly get something done from my horde of WIP's. It is ok to use something I've been working on but isn't finished, isn't it? If they've only had concept shots and a WIP or two online?

I believe so, liz, yes.

Darklord
20-11-2010, 11:09 AM
Liz Nick is correct - it may be something statred as long as its never been shown ina completed state - so yeah if youve shown WIP of it before thats fine.

(Hint: this is a great way to get all those half finished pieces completed!)

It's not going to affect me yet, DL, but any chance of getting the folder structure in place in the WAMPed! folder in the gallery, so people can start posting entries? There are people in the Kingdom Death contest, for instance, who may need to cross-post their entry to there, and right now there's only a general location to drop 'em in.

Darklord
27-11-2010, 09:40 AM
You can't enter something in two wamp specials (excepting the Little Angels rule). Gallery will be going up when I get chance

Cregan Tur
27-11-2010, 08:38 PM
Wait.... what's the little angel rule?

Darklord
28-11-2010, 01:06 AM
the little angels rle regarded entering items in specials that you had done for little angels - that rules now defunct anyway so dont sweat it!

Cregan Tur
01-12-2010, 07:21 PM
Here's a question for you- is it okay for me to load an entry into the WAMPed gallery and then post it in a WIP log as long as I do it after the timestamp in the WAMPed gallery, or do I have to wait until WAMPed is completed before I can show the pics elsewhere?

Darklord
01-12-2010, 07:24 PM
You may post pictures of WIP both here and elsewhere in public. Completed work may be displayed elsewhere AFTER it has been entered into the contest gallery here


there you go

Cregan Tur
01-12-2010, 07:52 PM
Well, that answers that question! I swear I read the rules before posting...

I hope this question hasn't already been entered. I looked through the forum but didn't see an answer.

Can we enter the same mini in multiple categories? I have one that I'm working on that will fit into more than one category so I figured it didn't hurt to ask.

No each entry may only go in one category. Its up to you to decide which one if it fits in several

Orki
09-12-2010, 04:59 PM
Just a quick one to confirm that we can enter each cat more than once yeah? But can only get 1 prize placing per cat (exc BoS/BB/BC).

Oh and how will the Best of Show and Best Base be decided too? I noticed the bit about marking entries for the Conversion one but nothing about the other 2 (unless i'm being a dumbass of course).

yep enter each as many times as you like.

Best in show,best base etc will all be public vote too - theres no gallery for them as each goes in another category already so it would just duplicate

Got about 40 rats to base and a couple of larger things, also needing bases.
Another 20 rat things roughly half way, half a dozen glued, pinned & puttied, one giant mound of ooze (if I get round to doing this one) and half a dozen still in blisters...
After this, I'm calling pest control!

Well I was originally hoping to use some cast versions of my asphalt bases so I could finish up my Grey Knights and enter them, but that's changed. I just need to man up and sculpt some new ones so I can finish and enter them.

I might be entering my army commissions in, we'll see.

I also hope to have my Wolfen Prowler finished and entered.

I'd be able to enter a lot more if I didn't have this pesky "job" thing :rolleyes:

@Nameless, providing you post your entry into the Wamped folder first then you should be able to enter it for the monthly as well, just enter it into Wamped first by about a day if possible.

Hey Brett, I entered my Grey Knight Terminator Squad into the General category because I couldn't think of where else to put them- I won't have the rest of my army put together to put them in the army category. Is this okay, or do I need to modify the entry?

We don't have a "honey-do list" in this house. I think she'll just be happy if the place is clean when she gets back, and I like to clean (I do "washes" all the time :wink:)... So I can't use that excuse for not painting.

Hello, just a query about the army painting challenge. I'm thinking about getting my ork boyz done for it, although I've shown 2 out of the eventual 20 models as finished. I know something similar had been asked before but I didn't feel it quite matched what I was after. This is the most WIP I've shown of the 'army' so far... (about a year ago now!)

How to enter with Warmachine to the Army Challenge if I have for example 3 Solos(3 separate models) 1 warmachine (one cannon +3 crewmembers)+ 1 Warcaster

Can I enter with different single miniatures several times?
Can I paint one model for Wamp Monthly And enter it here too?
If model is Forge World monster (still can be named as 28mm) but almost 10 inches high - is this general category or large-scale ?

You can enter each category as many times as you like with different miniatures.

Yes

General - its still 28mm scale after all!

I remember discussing this with exiles early on in the Army Challenge. From what I recall:

Warcaster as your HQ choice is fine
The cannon and crew (Commodore, at a guess), would be fine as a unit
The solos are a touch one - I'd e inclined to say they're not a unit, but exiles would need to make the final decision.

Speaking of having a go at the manafacturers ones, I've just received my Gaspez and Guild of Harmony figs, and had a mock up of some bases. They're in my WIP if anyone's interested! There's an outside chance I'll get 4/5 entries in by the deadline time, but like everyone else, I'm refraining from making an actual commitment....

IMPORTANT NEWS

It has come to my attention that there has been at least one entry put into the contest that breaks the contest rules, namely it being an entry that has been shown in a completed state elsewhere.
The rules state:

All entries must be new work (new work is defined as a piece not shown in a finished state in public before. It is fine to enter a piece that has been displayed in a Work In Progress state (if your unsure ask!))

I like to think it's simply a case of entrants not reading the rules properly. Suffice to say the offending entry will be removed.
All entries will be checked against other websites as much as possible to ensure fair play.
Please if you have uploaded an entry that contradicts the rules could you please let me know so it can be removed.
As I said I'm sure its an innocent mistake, our contest are always participated in a friendly way and this will continue to do so too.

If you have any questions then please contact me

Thanks

Brett

Darklord
14-02-2011, 06:35 PM
Just to clarify folks. If your entry is an issue you will be contacted directly and informed. The offending entry was previously shown over 6 months ago finished. You are prefectly fine to show wip shots of entries wherever you like (in fact I encourage it!) you can even show your entries finished elsewhere AFTER you have uploaded them to the Wamped gallery. I want you to tell the world you've entered the contest!!

And I'm sorry to hear about your bad news Vern. I have also had the same sort of news and have been wandering around without my head for the last week or so.

I really don't belong in this comp

Why? Rules state the only codition for an entrant is they must be a Wamp member. Are you a Wamp member? Yes , so now :stfu: get painting and enjoy it. You've as much right as anyone else to enter.

I know, I know but when I see the very high standard I feel that my stuff is just so much tat and that it's all rather silly entering against such competition. I know I only do it for fun but a lot of people don't see painting that way so I sort of open myself to getting a 'bad' rep. That doesn't bother me but I sometimes wonder if 'visitors' would consider the site as a lesser place because of it, and me.

Well, I've put on the dullcote on the mini. May have gone on a little thick in some areas or it may have been a little cold for the spray type but it's not bad. A couple of things to do like redo the final highlight on the metallics and then take some photos of it.

Wags, don't you DARE think that your painting (At what ever level you happen to do or like to do) will ever lesson the "glory" of any site you happen to be on. If anyone ever even eludes to such prat you should let everyone know.

Being good has nothing to do with this hobby. Honestly. One of the hardest things I deal with is getting new people or people who don't think their work "measures up" to enter into things. It's not about that. Or at least it shouldn't be. Honestly, if everyone had at least some of your attitude the painting world would have a lot more work posted as well as be a hell of a lot more fun.

OK, so you think your skill level doesn't hold up. So what? You enter. You enter against odds that you think state you will never win with. That's some serious guts man. I know I have trouble doing that. In fact I have taken a LOT of inspiration from you and your attitude. It doesn't matter if I don't think my piece will win. If I am happy (enough. I'm never 100% happy) with the piece it goes in. Period. Even if I think it's a waste of time. At the very worst I'll get a lot of useful feedback. At best I just might win something.

GHAAA.

Well, Roger, you've only got to 6pm tomorrow.....

I'm one wash off finishing entry #9, and just need to paint up the base for entry #10. I might get entry #11 finished as well, but I'm not sure yet.

28-02-2011, 01:28 AM
Damn,thought I had till midnight tomorrow! Serves me right for not checking deadlines. Might squeeze in another tomorrow in the terrain section, but have managed to get larger pics of my other models on there. Mods, if you could delete my smaller Folletto montage (posted on Wed I think) I'd be very grateful!

Well, I might have enough time tonight and tomorrow (GMT-5 here) to get the thing in. Going to enter it into the Basing section I think. So I may JUST finish the base (Easy to do) and finish up the rider during the rest of this week.

Stupid schedule has been a pain and it turns out I'm really anemic. So I've been suffering from a nasty set of lethargy for about two months. Go figure. Starting to take iron supplements though and I'm already feeling better. Go figure...

No more army painting for a while for me I think... :S

OMG Roger I feel faint and I'm sure you painting a mini has started a cataclysmic chain reaciton thats ripping apart the very fabris of space and time!!


Just a heads up folks on the following points:

Any entry must be work new work as described in the rules - already had entries posted on cmon last year - these will get deleted

It's up to you to ensure your entries are correct - if you re upload better photos please delete the original ones yourself (go to photo click edit photo then select delete - simples). Any duplicates will be deleted by us once entries close but we can't guarantee we will delete the correct one so to be sure do this yourself!
There are also photo size limits. If you image exceeds these it will not display full size as the software shrinks them automatically. Again this is your responsibility to check this (go to the photo and click it to see if it shows full size.)

The non-supporters deadline has passed already. Only entries by supporters are permitted now. Any non-supporter entries uploaded after this time will be deleted. If you are a non-supporter and have done this or wish to still upload you may by becoming a supporter.

Finally conversions. I am unable to spend hours checking each entry to see if its been converted and if so how much. If you wish to have your entry considered for the conversion category you must state on your entry description that it has been converted and preferably tell us in what way otherwise you risk it missing that category.

It's a fun contest guys and I will correct things as much as possible but with over 120 entries and counting it's hard to spot everything. If you have an issue or are unsure on anything please pm me and I will sort it out.
Don't come crying to me after the deadline that you have a problem. I need to know before the deadline.

Err... dunno! I thought it was about 8-9 but I could be wrong? Too much painting either way mate! I've still got a quite a few more to upload yet, though if im not hppy with the pics I wont bother tbh as I'm still focussing on repairing the all important 'biggy' (biggie?) for my shot at the general/BOS. :)

I have had a few queries regarding entries so thought I would clarify a point.

If you have been painting an entry for the army challenge but that army wont be completed, you are free to upload components of that army into the other categories instead.

Orki
28-02-2011, 11:30 AM
So I could've turned 1 or 2 entries into over a hundred then?

Well, it's within the rules I spose, but a bit lame if I were to do that. If say, i'd already thought that I wouldnt have a chance with my second army (as teh first one was plenty good enough for my shot at the prize there), then my second army could be broken down into units, vehicles, characters, single figures etc just to bulk numbers up to beat Dysartes!

Man that would be so lame! How many figures you painted so far mate? lol Race yer to take photoes of each of them!!!!


.....joking. Very, very joking. :rolleyes:

I have indeed taken up residence on the back seat for the mo while I finish my Wamped entries. Like I said in that post I wont be leaving them unfinished, as that would be just absurd obv given that the deadline is today. :)

After that I will indeed be taking some time out to re-evaluate certain things here and elsewhere while I concentrate on the real matters in life. You know, the ones that make or break you, and I don't break. Just gotta bend with it for the mo and all that. :) Rally hoo!

Still, got a lot of half (or in some cases 3/4) painted models done and ready to sell on eBay post comp! Good luck everyone!

Good luck everyone! (particularly to Brett with the fine tooth combing- I don't think I've seen many converted options so far, it's mainly been about the basing as far as I can see)

Just to clarify the statement I have made earlier - Its an entrant's duty to ensure they have mentioned conversions - if it doesnt mention it and I don't know it won't get into the conversion category so if you have one make sure it says so in the description!!
