I think we have a problem if people feel they should only enter a peice if it is painteed to Golden Demon standard or heavily converted in some way.
IMO the best part is simply seeing what people come up with: A model doesn't have to be particularly well painted to be interesting. It could be a new original paint scheme, a small simple conversion or -in the case of a battlegroup- a great coherency in the model's paint scheme.
If all we got was entriies of the green "Box" warlord painted to a very high standard well that would just be soooo boring! It is in the weird conversions and ooriginal paint jobss that people get inspiration to do their own original stuff.
I'd rather see 4 or 5 different Marine paint schemes painted to a gaming standard than (yet another) well painted Ultramarines force.

Sure some entries will be better painted than others but I think it's really sad if people don't want to enter because they feel the bar has been raised above their standards. That's shouldn't be the case. As the Competition description says: The aim of the comp is to see a lot of examples of painted Epic miniatures.

Cheers! :)

Although I can understand your feeling here, I must point out, if I want to post my poor paint jobs I can. We have the 6mm section. In fact, I did post pictures of my hodge-podge IG army.

The very fact I can not paint well and can not even come close to doing the kind of conversions I have seen here does make me less likely to enter.

Is this wrong? I do not think so. The very fact it is a compatition does say in some way, "enter your best".

So, I post my one and watch the great stuff come in.

And if nothing else, it helps clear the painting desk of projects!!!
Always a bonus ?

Well said, Doc - it works for me too.  :D
