GOLDEN TOM 2014 - Tom's Boring Painting Competition 2014

[UPDATE 10.1.2015]

Winners are announced! Congratulations! Head over to the Gallery section to see the winning entries!



[UPDATE 30.12.2014]

Submissions are closed! Thank you for your wonderful entries. Winners will be announced soon!




Did someone say “Golden Tom”? YES! It is finally here again by popular demand! After 6 years, TBMF is (finally!) back with hosting the second Golden Tom Painting Competition!
And this time, we beefed it up with an amazing, REAL, PHYSICAL, 300g BRONZE CAST, MAHAGONY BASED trophy!

THIS is YOUR chance to compete once more in the only Mordheim themed painting competition in the world and take the amazing Golden Tom statue home (well… technically you are not taking it anywhere, we will send it to you by post)
So wet your paintbrush, get the sculpting putty out, shake the paint pots and DAZZLE us, because who knows when you will get that chance again… maybe in 6 years?



Read the rules below!





What to submit

A single miniature that fits the setting of the Mordheim universe. See rules for details.

How to submit

Please send your submissions to tomspaintingservice@gmail.com
1. Please enter a subject to your email as follows: TBMC FirstName LastName
2. Please include a very short description of what your model represents.

Prizes

The painters of the three best miniatures will each receive

1. the physical Golden Tom trophy marked 1st, 2nd and 3rd place sent to them by mail
2. Golden, Silver and Bronze Tom profile icons on TBMF displayed in the profiles under "Achievements earned"

Rules

• One single model entry per contestant

• Size restrictions: anything up to (including) a model on a Ogre-sized base is allowed. This includes cavalry (which counts as a single model). An ogre sized base is about 50x50mm. The height of your creation is not restricted.

• The miniature must be painted specifically for this contest (if the jury finds out the miniature has previously been posted somewhere online, competitively or not competitively, the entry will be disqualified)

• There are no limitations on the miniature manufacturers! You can pick any miniature you want.

• Conversions are encouraged

• Entries will be judged mainly on artistic skill, how well they capture the mood, how “cool” they are generally and how convincingly they integrate themselves into the Mordheim universe (that is the official Mordheim Supplements and the unofficial Border Town Burning setting). Convincing, beautifully executed, creative, humorous submissions are what we look for and what will give you the best chance of winning.

• Submit a minimum  of 4, maximum of 10 pictures of your miniature (aim for great photo quality, this will improve your chances of success). Blurry pics cannot reasonably be judged.

• Editing of the pictures with photo software is NOT allowed (exception: general brightness changes of the whole picture). I doubt that anyone would be dishonest enough to try this, but let it be said nonetheless: should I (or the other judges) so much as suspect the use of photoshop software, we will disqualify the entry.

• Submissions will not be made public until the winners are announced. At which point the winning submissions and honorable mentions will be posted on TBMF.

• You need to be registered on this forum to take part in the competition. Making an account takes less than a minute.

• By submitting your entry you declare that all work on the model submitted was done by yourself and yourself alone.



TO YOUR PAINTBRUSHES, GOOD LUCK and LET’S GET STARTED!

We are very excited to see your submissions!



Admin Tom

Also I want to thank the moderators of TBMF for contributing their time and effort in planning this competition, chief amongst them, the irreplaceable Al a.k.a “DeafNala”.

How exciting. I look forward to seeing the entries and eventual winners. I think I'll have a go myself. Not with any expectation of winning, given the calibre of painters on the forum, but for the fun of competing and the challenge of spending longer on a model that usual!

Great to see such quick responses and that GT2014 has sparked the excitement I was hoping for! Smile

@Alex: Correct me if I am wrong, but as I understand it MiM is not released yet, so we did not include it in the "permitted" settings for this competition. HOWEVER, since Marienburgers are an official warband of the Mordheim setting, any Marienburg-type of miniature painted/scultped in the Marienburg visual style, bearing a Marienburg name and somewhat plausibly fitting the Mordheim setting is of course considered a valid entry to GT2014. Bear in mind that you can enter minitures from ANY manufacturer.

Can the model stand on diorama, or should it be a simple base? Or a simple base in diorama, so you can take the model out?

Can you use mounted models? What about two models on a cav-base, e.g. dog and doghandler?

Mounted figures & large monster types of the Ogre/Troll type are fine as long as he/she/it could be used in a Mordheim, EiF, BTB, etc. setting...the Dog Handler & Dog would be cool. SO let your imagination go & have FUN with it all.   What a Face

Sorry I didn't notice your question until now, Skavenblight. As long as the figure is usable in the game; i.e., mounted on a base that would be acceptable for a gaming piece, you can get as fancy as you'd like. As a basing Nut , you would influence my vote with an elaborate base; just keep size & games play in mind.   What a Face

And the word from The Man:

Hi Deaf!
Hi Skavenblight!

In response to your question regarding base sizes and dioramas:

Al's response is perfectly accurate. Let me just state the rules to provide some additional clarification though

Rules wrote:
Size restrictions: anything up to (including) a model on a Ogre-sized base is allowed. This includes cavalry (which counts as a single model)

Anything up to an "ogre sized" base (i.e. approx 50x50mm) is fine. You are free to put a human sized miniature on a 50x50 base if you want to spend extra time on the base. Height does not matter, your mini can be 20cm high if you want.

This means that a diorama is probably too big. It depends what constitutes a diorama in your mind of course, but generally a diorama is well beyond 50x50mm.

Hope that helps! Powodzenia!
Tom
