That's me out as well, just taken on a couple of large commissions that'll take the time I set aside for the LPL. Maybe next year  :)

But you've already done several teams! Just get on with it man!  ;D

I'm out too - as usual my painting projects are going all over the place, and I think I need to just go with the flow for a while. Looking forward to the show, however.  :D

Oh, I have a few teams near completion, but no Brits. :)

I for one would rather see a Britless Hammers than a Hammerless LPL.  :)

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

You now have less than 22 hours to submit your initial entries for inclusion in LPL12.  :o

Am I missing a page or are there really only 18 entries into this years LPL?  Also I am not seeing many of the traditional participants such as Admiral Benbow, Captain Blood etc.  What has gone wrong?  :o :o

Very sad to see the field dwindled so. Has taken the wind out of my painting sails a little, I'm prepared to admit.  :(

Just 18 entries this time. 

Some members (including Captain Blood and Admiral Benbow) were intending to give this year a miss, even before the contest was announced.  Maybe the new format isn't liked?  Maybe there is little interest in taking part in general? 

Entry numbers have varied between 26 and 70+ over the years.  It has always been a very small percentage of (7000+) members taking part and voting (sub 400 in LPL11).  All forum "contests" attract only small numbers of participants.  You can't force people to enter.

I normally throw in, but this year has turned into a beast to find time to paint - so with a convention game to finish stuff for, I decided to give this a pass to not stress myself out.

I entirely understand. Personally I found the LPL quite a hellish strain, which is why I've only ever done it once.  :)

I'm not mad at any individuals (I think you have to be a bit bonkers to enter it at all), just sad that it seems our once-great event is in decline.
