This thread is for general discussion on the LPL11

Questions about any aspect of the rules should be posted in the LPL11 rules thread here: http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=97891.0

First thing to note is that you have more than a month before entries open on 17th March, and more than six weeks before the final deadline for entries on 31st March.

Hopefully that will be long enough for participants to paint and photograph 15 miniatures to comprise the required three initial teams Smiley

I (Captain Blood) will be running the league this time - receiving entries, setting up the matches and dealing with questions and enquiries as far as possible.
Admiral Benbow will be managing the draw and the leaderboard.
And The Prof will pop in to answer questions from time to time too Smiley

During the competition itself, we ask you to be considerate and constructive with your comments on the running entries. Feel free to voice your opinion about entries, but DON'T post any comments with any sort of "quality comparison" of the pictures for example:

- 'Entry A is great but I have to vote for entry B, because it's so much better'.
- 'Well entry A is so manifestly superior to entry B, that I cannot understand why so many people are voting for entry B'.
- 'Entry A is running for the third time, so I give my vote to the Entry B, just because it's new and I'm bored with the other one'.

Any comments of this or similar sort will be deleted/censored without warning.

Also please note, there's no such thing as a 'both' button. Never has been - never will be Wink

And now get painting. Good luck to everyone!

Oh my - already?
I still haven't submitted the Build Something Photo!  Laugh
Huzzah. I'm going to try to get on board this year, even if the special rounds are problematic for me!

Thanks for keeping us entertained (and busy too!), Captain.

Well you've got until this weekend to get your BSC entry in, and then a whole 4-6 weeks for the LPL  Wink

I know, not complaining  Cheesy
I need stuff like the BSC and LPL to get me painting anyway.

I really like the Bonus round themes, well executed. I think I will try to defend my last years 5th Place.

I have a hoarding problem. How can I tell? I won't need to buy anything for this LPL and in the bonus rounds I even have multiple possible entries.

I guess that's a good thing...

Huzzah! Point your brushes and wet your paint!
One question though about round 10:
I wonder if it would be possible to display a band of random wandering monsters (mixed creatures of different species) with one of them being at least double their size e.g. Squigs, Goblins, Orks, Wraiths and Skeletons plus a Troll for the big one?
Or does the group have to be composed of one sort of species e.g. animals like 5 wolves plus a bear?
Would 5 pirates and a giant sea monster be fine (as long as it is on their side)?

Michi, the operative word is Brothers Smiley So they need to be from the same kind/species/family. Humans with a human-looking Ogre or Giant would be fine. Humans with a Kraken not. Wolves with a bear wouldn't work as well. Also no luck for Goblins with Skeletons, I'm afraid  Cheesy

Alright, thank you for the clarification, Alex. I have to plan ahead now...  Cheesy

I've got a wee question: if I've shown a WIP on my blog, like this for example:

https://bladesandblasters.com/2017/02/06/15mm-pulp-sci-fi-preview/

Could I enter the finished team if I haven't shown any other images? I'm not actually thinking if that particular set, but it's a good example.

I'm seeing a completely painted figure there, that means this one wouldn't count anymore as he has been "shown". You still can use him in your LPL entries but he wouldn't count as newly-painted-never-shown-on-internet. Furthermore I'm seeing four unpainted miniatures there. They would be fine. Showing unpainted or primed WIP shots of the models is no problem at all. Thus we have five figures there, a proper LPL team. But you wouldn't receive any newly-painted-bonus points for this particular team. Though you could paint a sixth miniature and in this way you would provide five never-shown painted miniatures and thus qualify for 10 bonus points.

Excellent - cheers. Good to clarify. Just realised I should have posted this in he other thread - could a mod kindly move it? Seems like something others might want to know.

Last LPL I managed was LPL7, I think, which is way too long ago! I'm going to do my best to get in on this round, although I've hardly painted anything since November...

My Build Something entry should be done on time, then I'll consider my LPL options!
