Can we make this longer than 99 entries?  The last one of this size was done in less than. 30 days' or at least one entry per member??

Haha, I'm trying hard to make it more exclusive!  lol

Not sure what that means? But to be honest it gets boring seeing a few peoples work over and over and not other great talent here!

It is a club... if there are less members it is more exclusive.  ;D

But, hey, don't fret, I'll stop posting any more figures... I liked how this was motivating because there was a finite deadline and a sort of 'race to the end'-feeling about it, but if people are getting the 'I had a sip of sour coffee'-look from it, then I guess it's not that important.  :)

I was inspired by the topic but didn't have any good PA models to hand. I did have some Gripping Beast Dark Age warriors on the table, though, and their scruffy beards and puttees made me think they could work. This is a GB plastic warrior with the backpack from a Warzone Bauhaus militia model. I've also given him a tommy gun, made by Hasslefree, which I had sitting in my bits box.

Fellow LAFers, folks, chaps, guys, peeps, gentlefolk....

A brief refresher from the LEAD APOCALYPSE rules:

Quote
Can I paint and submit more than one miniature?  Of course you can!  But you can only post one miniature a day (though your image can be a composite from several different angles, etc.).  As there’s no rush to finish, please enter with freshly painted minis, not photos of old PJs.  

This is a miniature painting club, not an army painting competition as is the LPL, an intention of which is to motivate fresh painting.

Assuming a member is freshly painting each mini (yes, I know it's open to interpretation but we are gentlefolk who conduct ourselves in the spirit, so we don't need a written rule for everything, do we?) then multiple entries over a series of days are permissible.

Yes, this will reduce the number of slots available to members but I really do not want to cap contributions as this would be at odds with how and why the Prof launched the inaugural league, one reason for which was to show a number of minis he was painting over the course of a week.

In terms of the number of slots, 99 is what we have and they will fill at their own pace, whatever that is.  These clubs tend to be about the 100 mark and we have our 99 red balloons theme.  The slots are filling quickly but the pace might drop, or it might not.

Anyways, it is Sunday: a great day for painting and maybe photography  ;)

 :)

List updated chaps, thanks for all your entries and please claim your badges.

An especially nice PJ from Orctrader, and James H that was a great idea to convert the Viking.

Wait, I've managed to miss this whole topic until now. An all-caps title always makes me assume it's drive-by blog or commercial spam because actually contributing members have read the forum rules and know better. :o

Thanks, everyone! I am surprised how OK it looks, actually -- I hate seeing a fantasy or historical figure sci-fied up by just having guns stuck on it; it never looks right. So I was pleased that this one seemed to come out.

A partial ALL CAPS title but it seems I've still broken the rules!  :o  Apologies folks that's a poor example I've set and I will amend to lower case.  :D (I'd have used a blushing icon but we don't have one  ;))

What an utterly fantastic idea!

Awesome entries so far. I hope to get stuck into painting my entry this week!
