This is the reason i mostly skip thematic rounds..

But they are the ones that are most fun!

But you  need to have sometimes very specific miniatures.
or ability to get them shipped really fast which many places outside UK and US sadly lack

IIRC I managed only to enter the LPL11 ones, Tribals, Ship crew (space in myt case) and Big brothers (with big mutant)

LPL 12 had impossible for me
Had to skip on crew served weapon from this very reason.
( British was little complicated as there are none in my the collection nor want any in foresable future)

Some bonus rounds have been very specific, others more generic.

Doing a quick scan through the past rounds (with round 3 hard to find what the themed rounds are without some serious digging and round 4 had no themed rounds) I found the following themes:

WWII
Back of Beyond
Civilians and Bystanders
Africa
Scenes from Movies
Old Metal
JRR Tolkien
Maritime/Naval
HQ Group
Any historical civil war
Science Fiction
Realms of fantasy
Ancient (historical only)
WWI
Armour
Animals
Women
Lets not stand (figures sitting/kneeling etc)
Middle Ages
Creatures/beasts/monsters
Tribesmen
Ships crew
Big brothers, little brothers.


As I mentioned, I like the themes but some can be quite limiting in that they may require painting something you don't collect.  I know these aren't compulsory, but we are all competitive :D

In the two LPL's I did manage to get in, for a few of the rounds where I didn't have the proper genre, I was able to get unpainted figures from others in my gaming group.  They were more than happy to let me paint a few of theirs.  lol

I find looking for that something different fro a special round great fun as I can pick the models I really like and not have to fit them to any others.  They are some of my favourites in my cabinet.

Have also borrowed figures from a friend and entered them - He was happy with the paint job

One of the moderators has said heís willing to run another LPL and is considering when he may be able to do it, real life allowing, and what help he may need from a number of people who have offered. Watch this space...
