It explicitly mentions VSF as acceptable, Ray. :)

Does this also exclude such characters like Odysseus, Jason and the like? After all they were explorers in the broadest of senses even if probably somewhat fictitious  ;)
Given that they are of fable rather than historical figures, that would exclude them I'm afraid.

Unlikely as I am to reach the golden shore of the quarter finals, I was wondering - would the Mountain Men of the early American West/the Frontier qualify for the theme of Round 7? (explorers, settlers, pioneers)
Some Mountain Men definitely explored and opened up trails to the American west, so would meet the definition.  Whether they operated in groups or were more solitary, I don't have the specific knowledge.  At worst, one or two with pack animals or similar would certainly be appropriate.

Excellent - thanks for the reply, Overlord. A bit of variety in the entry, with some animals too, makes a lot of sense.

Sorry for adding to the noise, but would German Soldiers/Marines etc. for German East Africa fit in this category? I would say yes, but want to double-check before I paint the damn things :-)

Round 7 – Explorers, settlers and pioneers.
A team comprising a party of historical explorers, settlers or pioneers.  From Conquistadors to the scramble for Africa, the far-flung outposts of the Roman, British or other Empire.  Paint a team of at least 5 that may include figures, beasts of burden or means of transport.

Two questions
First, with The British are coming, do troops include command and HQ ( ie can it just be a group of officers and no rank and file?)

Second, do the 5 models need to be individually based or can they be modelled onto 1 base?

As long as they are based, they can be individual figures or based in one or more groups. And yes, the British can be any combination of ranks and types, provided they make a plausible team.

I suppose I am a bit of a thicko, but are those who qualify for the last three rounds supposed to enter new paintjobs for rounds 8 and 9?

Yes.  Although only the top eight after round 6 progress, the contest remains as before with participants (hopefully) submitting a new entry for each of the final 3 weeks.

Yet another seemingly daft question I'm afraid...

Is there a maximum number of other figures that can appear in the photo scene along with the actual team taking part? Do they have to be 'new' as well?

There has been no limitation to this before, as long as there were the stipulated number of "new" minis in the image to warrant the "new" bonus. But this may have changed...?

Yes.

That's a bit harsh, isn't it?  ;)

Let's not give them ideas. Some of the best things in LPL have been the big crowd scenes some people do. Would be an awful shame to change that. I'd say as long as you have a team of five you're good, everything else is just 'background' and needn't be scrutinized too closely.
