    Hello one and all, it's about that time again!

    So while you're all furiously digging around for your tools, which I KNOW you're all doing right now, because you're that keen....

    This I was planning on doing, but wanted to complete prizes for it first (always nice to see what you're competing for rather than being told). However, this being done in partnership with current:
    The Golden Slann 2018 Contest

    Something I want to throw out here and now so people know what to expect.
    1. If you've entered The Golden Slann Contest then you're already entered, fret not.
    2. If you're still working on a piece for this contest you're also STILL safe.
    3. Prizes have not yet been determined, but will follow something along these lines.
    • - 1st place - sculpt of something (that I need to finish).
    • - 2nd place - heavy custom/converted piece.
    • - 3rd place - not quite as heavily custom/converted piece, but still something that hopefully people will be proud of (possibly something like a Spinosaurus head for a Carnosaur as I did start one years ago).
    Beyond that look now further than the link below, it's all pretty much stayed the same.

    *Copy and pasted because I'm trying to type AND sulpt at the same time....it's not working*

    Rules:
    • You submit photos of ONLY one model (your choosing) you've converted or sculpted. You can however send multiple photos of the same piece, it all counts.
    • Submissions should be sent in a PM TO ME, DO NOT UPLOADED PUBLICLY! Make sure you use the title "My contest entry"
    • Kitbashes will be accepted IF there is green stuff, or some other putty clearly visible and being used to create textures/surfaces/accessories, etc.
      - Simple cut and shuts of different parts will NOT be accepted.
    • Your submission can have as little or as much paint on it as you like, however I would prefer it if I can see a photo BEFORE you apply paint.
    • There will be prizes....(these might change, but for the moment are as follows at the bottom).
    PRIZES:
    1. First prize is a one off sculpt...I will post sneak photos of it in a month or so, but for the moment I will say.... nothing....
    2. Second prize will be a heavily converted/semi sculpted character sized figure.
    3. Third prize will be a heavily converted (but not to the same extent as the 2nd place prize, I'm thinking it might be a head or convertible/inter-changeable options for a chracter)
    What you need to do/FAQ:
    • Start by taking photos of any work you've done NOW, or begin work, you have plenty of time for the moment as I've not come up with a end date yet, this is to make sure everyone has enough time if other commitments might make this difficult.
    • Any questions can be fired in below this post, but please keep any photos of works you want to enter hidden from everyone (except via PM to myself).
    • I AM more than happy to have anyone offer to help judge should they wish.
    • Obviously, I won't be taking part.... ;P
    So as you see, same rules as last year, only this time the Salamanders will be poked with sticks FIRST.

    I think you answered all my questions. I already posted photos of my original Golden Slann project on the forum, so I will see if I have time to start a new project for this one too!

    As soon as you figure out a date let us know... that will help determine how much time/procrastination is possible... :facepalm:

    Thank you for setting this up!

    Does this mean that the entry need not be a Slann conversion? Must it be a Lizardmen conversion or can conversions for other armies be entered?

    Do you have a rough idea of how long the contest will run for? weeks? months?

    I'm thinking (and please everyone, feel free to chime in with feedback), March the 1st.
    This allows time for those who haven't started yet.

    Hmm, I'm thinking (let me know) I open it up for other categories too so not just Slann.

    As for those who have already entered I know this quite a long delay, I hope this is alright.

    @HeirofCarnage
    Yes, you can.

    Can my entry be something other than a Slann?

    It is a shame I can't reveal my first real conversion. However I am curious about the other creations. So March is fine. I like my model so my entry will be the same.

    I think the photos are best kept with Slanntaslittlehelper, he can easily share them with me.

    I've been having a tinker and play around with the options for prizes.

    3rd place will be a weapon (I'll have a go at making a selection, so the 3rd place winner picks which one they want).
    2nd place will be a standard saurus/skink sized conversion, no monsters, no Slann.
    1st place will remain as stated, but what it is....I'm still not saying.
