Yes. What Dr Mathias said. It's been that way for the last three or four years.
I too liked to include alternative views, but the Prof felt, and on balance I agree, that there was just too mich jiggery-pokery creeping in, and it was getting away from the basic premise of the LPL: paint 5 figures, take a photo of them, send it in. That's it. Back to basics  Smiley

I won’t be able to send pictures for the first 3 rounds before next Monday… I hope all 50 places won’t fill up during the weekend  Wink

As usual, I’m struggling to take decent pictures. The ones I’ve done so far are too dark, too bright or too yellow… that’s when they aren’t out of focus  Laugh

Photos taken, but internet at home down and probably not back on before next week - so I'll only make it if 50 do not register before Friday, as I can't hang around at work til late.  Cry

@Calimero, I feel your pain. For the first three rounds of entries I spent a total of six hours setting up terrain, taking pictures, adjusting lighting, exposure, focus, camera angle, etc. etc. The process of taking good, vibrant pictures is very challenging for me! I'd totally buy a camera that was smart enough to do it all for me Smiley

In any case, I'm ready with the first three entries. I can't believe I have to wait another 3 hours and 18 minutes before I can submit them!!!! Cheesy

Thanks

Painting figures is the easy bit. Experienced LPLers will all say the same thing - it's getting the right image that's the difficult bit. I usually have to shoot about 50 just to get the one I want where the composition, light, focus, etc, is all just right...  Roll Eyes

It's great when it all comes together though Smiley

Do eggs (hatching or not) count as part of a team?

But Peder, things just won't be the same without the additional game of 'spot the doggy'  Wink

I made a mistake in thinging the pics *have* to be entered by March 17th. It's March 31st, right? So there is still some hope.

Sadly, may not be able to enter.

Just out of an unexpected four day stay in hospital.

Will try to get stuff done prior to deadline but am not overly hopeful.

Thanks for the patience in answering my questions.

Correct Peder. Deadline is 31st March. (Unless we reach our ceiling of 50 contestants before then, but as we only have six registrations so far, I think that's unlikely Smiley)

Matt, I don't see why not. The basic rule is five figures or models. These are individual models, so would count.

Sadly, may not be able to enter.

Sorry to hear that. Hope you stage a full and healthy recovery Smiley

*Sorry* turns out I do have another question. Just looking at my painting queue for future rounds - I've got some Peter Pig old west on the go. Would two characters mounted, on foot and as a casualty (i.e 2 sets of 3 models) count? I appreciate they don't really form a plausible team, in a sense.

In case it's not clear what I mean, I mean two sets like this

Yep!  Smiley
That's six models. The minimum for a legitimate team is 5.

Honestly, I use it as an excuse to paint small groups I have meant to, or finish chunks of armies.  I will never be the same caliber painter that some of the participants are, so I just hope to participate, and not look ridiculous in the process.

I have a half painted anvil of doom that I might enter - it's this model.

http://www.solegends.com/citcat9x4/c93540-03.htm

A figure on a steed counts as one figure, but does an anvil count as a steed?  Laugh In other words, to make this a legal entry, would I have to add one or two additional dwarfs?
