In space, no one can hear you paint. But here, the results may be seen.

Welcome to the newest instalment of the LAF Painting Clubs:

101 Space Oddities

This is a rather informal, just-for-fun Painting Club. Everyone may enter, no prizes to be won, but if you participate, you may add the Future Wars Painting Club badge to your signature by using the code below:

[img width=50 height=50]http://www.lead-adventure.de/gallery/19/140_04_12_14_6_04_13.jpg[/img]

The rules are simple:

  • Every registered member of the LAF is free to join.
  • You may post a single picture every 24 terran standard hours.
  • You may post any number of pictures during the run of the painting club, as long as you only post a single picture every day
  • The picture must feature a single-based wargaming or hobby miniature. For larger scales (20mm+), this also includes mounted figures, those riding a small vehicle etc. pp., or a single-based weapons team/heavy weapon IF ALL THE COMPONENTS ARE MOUNTED ON A SINGLE BASE.
    For small figure sizes (15mm and less), the base may contain more than a single miniature, but the image may only contain a single base. ANY ENTRIES VIOLATING THIS RULE WILL BE REMOVED BY THE MODERATOR.
  • The theme is: Science Fiction, of the futuristic variety. Basically, anything goes, man, machine and monster, as long as it is a single item or a single base.
  • The figure should, by all means, be newly-painted and unpublished so far in its present state.
  • You may upload the image by using the Attachment function or by uploading it to an image hosting service and linking here.
  • When posting, please look up the last number and number yours accordingly, e.g. if the last entry was entry #042, your entry is #043 and should be labelled as such.
  • The contest will run until, after Entry 000 below, 100 entries have been posted (hence, 101 Space Oddities).
  • I will collect all the entries in a gallery which was created for this painting club.

That's it so far. If you have questions pertaining to the rules, feel free to PM me or to post them in this thread; I will collect the questions in an FAQ post below and then remove the original posts to keep the thread neat and tidy.

To start things off, here's entry #000: "Spades" O'Dakker, Space Mercenary.

Quote from: Scurv
why only a single miniature?

The requirement is a single figure, first and foremost, because it has been so in the past for the other painting clubs. Second, to keep the entry barrier low, and third to allow them to be enjoyed/scrutinized/judged on equal terms. Although there are no prizes to be won.

Quote from: HerbyF
Shouldn't people be putting their count number on their entries?

Yes, they should, for the sake of easier management and to avoid confusion. It must have slipped from the original post, but it has been added to the rules now.

Quote from: zemjw
Can I post a before/after picture of a figure? It's a repaint of a toy, so the before would give a bit of extra context.

I'm happy enough with just the "after", but thought I'd ask


For this contest, just a picture of your finished piece, please. You may add a line or two describing what it used to be previously, and add a link, but no extra pics in the posts please.

Amalgamated: May I post a figure I painted in the past, but have never shown before?

Yes, if it has been unpublished, you may post it. The painting club is also about prodding folks to paint some new stuff, so newly-painted is certainly preferable. I have neither the time, the inclination or the means to check back if members republish an old thing, but it's a matter of honour and if someone finds out, they may point out the fact in a post.

what about newly converted figures? have had this Hasslefree hazmat figure for a while(painted and done) but recently sculpted a new arm and gave him a new gun?

Did you already show it on the LAF? If you did, this is not eligible. If it hasn't been shown, you may enter it, although we would prefer a completely new item.

I don't even know where to start on this topic, too many sci-fi miniatures to choose from.  Hypno
