Thanks fellas :) I've mainly ducked out for fear of repeating  myself, and lack  of inspiration, oh yes and the lead/plastic horde... ;D

Bummer man, was looking forward to seeing what you make :(.

Hopefully through the year inspiration will hit hard & can get to see your work lovely again though, meantime enjoy the lead pile  :)

Another interesting rules question popped up when I was slaving away on my entry!

In order to make the terrain even more difficult, I thought about adding a few unruly spectators to the race (mine is Gaslands terrain), sitting on top of a large overhead traffic sign, throwing cans, rocks or even taking a few potshots at the racing vehicles.

But this means adding a couple of 20mm miniatures to the piece, and I don't know how the rules would be on that.

The actual gaming miniatures are vehicles, so no confusing them with those, and they would add some extra difficulty to the track (i.e. dodging their projectiles), so would be an integral part of it.

However; I'd be perfectly fine if the powers that be would rule against including them; the piece should work fine without spectators (I just think they would add a bit more cool to the overall effect)...

As you describe it, its allowed:

There is no minimum or maximum limit of figures in the entry as long as they are an integral part of it. The traditional single, individually based miniature for size indication will be allowed.

So by my count, there's 3 weeks to go. How is everybody getting on? I think I'll make it, but I'm going to struggle to get it fully painted in time!! :'(
