The Lead Painters' League - Season Four - The Results
« on: May 03, 2010, 08:17:19 PM »
Dear friends,

It's always a bit sad when an LPL season comes to an end. So this time, too, I have to tell you that the Season Four of the Lead Painters League is over.

On the other hand, it’s always a welcome break from nonstop looking for ideas and minis for the next round, painting, varnishing, basing, photographing and so on…I know, I'm that way, too.

LPL is hard, maybe too hard, especially while it’s running, but honestly...now...after 10 rounds and lots of newly painted teams…a good feeling, isn’t it? Maybe it’s just me, but I like it exactly that way.

It was a great show again. 46 participants, hunderts of teams, thousands of minis, 230 matches, about 60.000 votes. I would say that as painters and wargamers we have every reason to be proud of us!

Now let me announce our winners…

And the winner of the Season Four of the LPL is…the Master of the Paints, the Magician of the Brush, the Lord of the Secrets of the Mysterious Art of Photography…the unrivalled Captain Blood! Well fighted, Richard, congratulations for winning the battle!

The second place goes to…sorry…never managed to write right his name …wait a minute…just have to copy and paste…the Knight of the Order of the Vivid Colors, the fabulous D@rth J@ymZ! Good performance, James!

And the third place goes to …the Prince of the Kingdom of the Marvelous Painting, the grandiose Heldrak!  Top notch entrance, Michael!

And now, as usual, some honorable mentions:
- Dolmot, who entered most creepy entries, fantastic and unusual choice of miniatures, everything very nicely painted, a true master of Horror!
- Hammers, who built most spectacular dioramas
- Chambersofminiatures , “who came within a whisker of a top three finish” again (s. Season 3) Patrick, I really hope next time you’ll more luck!
- Overlord, who managed to collect ALL possible theme bonus points!
- JMGraham, who demonstrated a quite uncommon painting style
- Greywolf, who painted not only his minis but also the setting backgrounds
- Silent Invader, who painted and SCULPTED his minis
- Froggy The Great, who discovered a really groundbreaking using of a computer mouse
- Uncle Mike, who entered a most delicious entry with his Evil-oompas and Nougat
- Doc Twilight, who painted really LOTS of spaceships

Sorry to all other participants, who haven’t been mentioned, YOU ALL HAVE SHOWN TREMENDOUS CREATIVITY and it’s been a pleasure and honor to run the league again. Thank you very much!

And last but not least…the final leader board…

#39?! Three off my target, damn. ::)

Good show everyone! Congratulations to the winners (and we'll all accept that Capt. Blood won freely and fairly. It's not like he was in a position to modify the results or anything ;)). Fantastic entries as always.

So. When's the next one?

Congratulations to all the entrants! It was a great start to every monday watching all the entires. Every week I found it difficult to choose whom to vote for, because of the great painting  and imagination involved.
Great show!
I might even participate next time just for the fun of it.

Definitely a great season!

Congratulations to all competitors, from first to last, who provided so many beautiful entries, an enormous amount of creative and inspiring works of metal madness and who proved themselves to be true Adventurers for taking up and meeting the challenge of the Lead Painters' League.  I bow before each and everyone of you for your inspiring efforts and work.  Thank you all, very, very much.

And, lest we forget....

Three Cheers for the Prof... the first for hosting this marvelous contest... the second for not only running the show but competing as well... and the third for his wonderful entries which set the standard for which others had to overcome.

You are a Real Gentlemen, Alex.

It was a great thing to participate in, and congratulations to the winners!!

Bit addictive though as I painted the whole saturday to get my fresh entry done... let`s just try to keep that momentum going and I might actually get off the first layer of Lead Mountain before 2017  lol

Next time, I`ll definitly be participating again, this is great fun

I really enjoyed following this and have never taken such a keen interest in a painting comp before
The entries really were most impressive, I hope those taking part had as much enjoyment as I did from admiring your efforts over the past 10 rounds
well done to you all and thank you

lol

Yes, it's a bit off really, isn't it. I honestly didn't think I was going to come top this time - I didn't even chase all the possible bonus points, dammit  ;)

Next time I shall definitely sit it out!

Mind you, it was only by a whisker. Congratulations to D@rth, Heldrak and Chambers. You pushed me very very close  :)


So. When's the next one?


Ask Captain, next time it's his turn  :D

I think we all need a break for a few months, don't we? But I will be happy to run LPL5 in due course. (Although I might take up one or two offers of assistance with the bookkeeping side of things! It really is a shedload of work.)

Thanks Alex, for running the show. A great undertaking all round, with many wonderful and creative entries. Well done to everyone that took part, and especially those who kept up with the punishing pace. It is, as they say, a marathon not a sprint!  ;)

Big round of applause for the professor, everyone.

LPL is hard, maybe too hard, especially while it’s running, but honestly...now...after 10 rounds and lots of newly painted teams…a good feeling, isn’t it? Maybe it’s just me, but I like it exactly that way.

It is for me, as I have said, but that doesn't mean there is anything wrong with the competition. You could potentially send in entries at a pace and quality which agrees with you as long as you don't mind not winning. But if you are, like me, in it if not to win at least to see how you measure up against the other fellow whose work you like*), then it can become pretty rough.

To me there is quite a conflict in LPL. Planning an  entry is all about inspiration and I can't see myself making something just to get an entry in. And it *has* to look good, to me, otherwise there is no point. To achieve this within a week is almost impossible to me and therefore it becomes a chore which is not good since this is supposed to be a hobby **).

I therefore doubt I will participate next time ***) unless I can find more spare time in my life. Unfortunately I have heard several others indicating this as a reason why they don't participate.



*)...and hopefully make him/her smart a little. Hey, Captain Blood, round 9, did it hurt a bit? ;)
**)...says the guy with so many posts the LPL is creakig at the seams...
***)Something I've said a couple of time just to change my mind at the last minute. I am a very complex and interesting guy that way.
