Heh, funnily enough the first thing I painted was the Round 7 entry, only because I had something suitable in the queue. Figured I needed them done even if I didn’t make the cut.

All the other rounds will still be a bit of a struggle though ...

Well. the final three are all started. It's looking decidedly dodgy, time-wise, but I'm going to finish what I started. Regardless of whether I get them done in time, or if I get knocked out before I get the chance to show them all, I shall finish all my entries and post them on LAF. Just seems like the right thing to do.



Edit:
Oops. Sorry, posted this in the wrong thread. This is nothing to do with rules.



Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...

I think the voting is closed on Saturdays, so the mods can do all the work to arrange the next round that starts Sunday morning.

I have one proposition.
If there will be compulsory thematic round next year, please give that information earlier.

I don't quite understand what you mean. It was announced right at the very start, when the league itself was announced. How can you announce it earlier than that?

Personally I'm not so sure it was a good idea, but they were up-front about it.

Yes it was but I still believe it was not quite enough time, a month more for such thing would be better.
2 months is not enough even If I would want to order it as some stuff take ages to arrive and not surprisingly I couldn't source anything like it locally.

Fair point. I am a little spoiled living in the country where so many of our figures are made, and you can generally get what you want in a few days, often just one or two. I hadn't considered how it might be in other parts.

UK is quite good as as miniature source. Normally I got my stuff in around 2-3 weeks (GZG was insane - Once Friday order arrived at Monday - I am not sure how he did it but he did once :) but after brexit it will most probably be taken for duty and this is taking extra time even if packet is duty free.  But USA or something strange from Eureka would easily take 2 month sometimes. And if something is out of stock...

A compulsory round does make things a bit harder, particularly if you have no suitable miniatures and/or live somewhere with potentially long delivery times.  This was considered before the contest.  It was however announced on 11th March, 13 weeks before the closing date for Round 7.  I don't think that is an unreasonably short time period to acquire and paint an entry (Although many of us do struggle to complete entries in time, myself included!).

That said, following the end of this years LPL there will be an open discussion for feedback, with a view to future contests.
