Welcome to the February Painting challenge. This month you have chosen ...
Image


This month UP TO 4 miniatures can be entered in the challenge and is open to anything at all from Mordor. A maximum of 4 models can be submitted for the vote.


1. To enter the painting challenge, the miniature/s you are painting must not be painted before starting and picture proof must be shown of the miniature 'pre-painted' (unprimed, undercoated or if you are repainting and old miniature - in its' original paint scheme) otherwise your entry will not be eligible.

2. You may join the painting challenge in progress at any time, but must submit photographs of the completed miniature by midnight GMT of February 28th 2015. WIP images are welcomed and encouraged. A maximum of 4 photos of your completed entry please, this allows you to show your miniature off from front, back and each side which is more than enough. If you would like to compile more than four pictures into one file it is ok to do that

Pictures of completed models must be submit using a third party hosting site such as photobucket or imageshack. Pictures submit by attachment will not be eligible for the vote. Any problems PM me.

3. Miniatures that are completed in time will be eligible to win the challenge. The challenge winner will be decided by the vote of the OR community. The community will choose one winner and one runner-up from the completed miniatures. Votes should be cast not simply on painting skill, but on merit, including creativity, application of painting techniques, artist improvement, etc. There is no prize available for the winners of this challenge, the challenge is solely for community participation and as an incentive for people to reduce their backlog and improve their painting skills.

4. With the introduction of The League Winners from the previous month are now eligible to enter and win consecutive challenges without penalty.

Good luck to all!

Got a few ideas for this one, count me in (proof pics to follow later). Can the 4 minis be mounted on a single display base, or is it just the minis themselves that are allowed here?

So this is limited to just what's in the Mordor sourcebook, or would Dol Guldur stuff from The Hobbit count as well?

Not that anyone would have any trouble choosing from the swathes of stuff in the sourcebook...

Nice challenge theme, but i am really unsure both of my entries in mind are eligible at all.
Would :
Warriors of the dead painted with a completely different theme to match undead of Angmar?
Mordor uruk hai converted to match easterlings theme?
If both are too messy with the challenge theme its ok, i will take part with something else anyway :)

@Halauas - both of your ideas are totally fine.

Don't get to hung up on whats eligible guys. The more people we can get involved the better.

Command for my warg rider army

Not sure whether I'll get them done on time, but I hope they will give me inspiration for the rest of the army!

Ok, here's my proof pic: 2 Morannon Captains, 2 banners. I may not put all of these into the final entry, and may add a Shaman in place of one.

And some WIPs of the first two.

Alright, I'll give Mordor a shot for my first time in the challenges. I'm not particularly motivated to paint the warg rider since I don't use them, but we'll see. Gorbag and the shaman are certainly going to happen. Oh, and I hope there isn't too much paint on the far left model already!
