Any further word on Season 3?

I was about to ask the same question, then I saw this.

My personal dilemma is, being a slow painter, I have started painting a group that would qualify for LPL-3.  If the League were going to start soon...ish I would hold the eventual photos back.  If not starting for many months, I would post as soon as complete.   ???

As I know the Professor is busy with work I'm reluctant to bother him direct.

I did volunteer last summer to administer a season of the LPL, to which the Prof said yes please.

Truthfully though, I don't think he's had time or access to do anything much at all from where he is (out in the real back of beyond!)

As things stand, I don't have the necessary permissions to run it, and I'd rather not run an 'on the fly' version when the organisation of the first two seasons was so impeccable.

Watch this space I guess...  :)

Isn't Knoxville an administrator? Maybe he can give you the permissions you need.

If there's going to be a LPL3 I'll hold on to my pictures for just a while longer.

I'm withholding pics as well.  If someone doesn't get an LPL going soon pictures of painted minis will dry up altogether around here.  :)

You´re just not productive enough! ;)

Coincidentally, I talked to the Prof on Saturday on the topic, and without wanting to give away too much, he´s still behind the good Captain running it, just has to figure out how to properly organise all the authorisations and access protocols. From what he told me, I´d expect something in the near future.

All sounds good.

I dont hold anything back as I like to adhere to what I thoght was the original idea of painting something each round. Its a great motivator even if real life throws a lot of spanners in the works at times.

I thought about holding back mini's... but it just doesn't feel sporting, given the spirit of the competition.

Knowing that someone has a whole leagues worth of mini's already prepared means I'll probably sit the next one out.   :?

Well, I'm holding back minis more in theory than practice.  I so rarely paint that I've only now almost got my first anticipated five-man team done.  However, I have no intention of showing them.  Yup, I'm saving them for the competition.  :)

I'll add that to my way of thinking part of the spirit of the competition is to show off new paintjobs that no one's seen.  So hopefully I'm not digressing too far from the intention of the competition.
