How cruel to follow up the Build Something Contest so closely!  Laugh Laugh

I'd hate to miss it. I guess it just means I won't be posting photos of things I'm painting for awhile, now. I will TRY to enter this one. I know I have an incredibly busy schedule coming up, including a spring break in Argentina (I know...don't cry for me... Laugh).

That said, I did just receive a shipment of a bunch of 28mm gladiators...and I do have that last batch of Flint & Feather figures (trust me, I have the tribesmen thing covered... Laugh), and I have been wanting to paint up some more of the Splintered Light Miniatures animals...

You lot are a bad influence.
Looked at the bonus rounds yesterday and thought I may not enter again this year (especially after my first foray into it last year met with some very severe defeats  Cheesy) - so why is it I find myself just having ordered a bunch of stuff to paint for this year's LPL? Laugh

I've seen these before and have always been curious, and will give it a go this year.

Does it fill up quickly? The idea of getting up at 3am to enter my things at the exact opening time does not look appealing!

Reasonably quickly-ish, but not unreasonably so.

Last year there were only 34 out of 50 people entering, so I wouldn't be surprised if we don't make it to 50 again this year. But you don't want to be the last one to enter when there's an odd number of opponents, so I wouldn't leave it till the last minute, but you definetly don't need to rush to enter as soon as it opens  Wink

In typical fashion, I have found in the lead pile all the models for my 2017 LPL - barring the week 1 tribe, who are missing in action!  Angry

I think I'll enter this for the first time.

Do i need to enter a new team for every round?

You don't have to, but if you want to maximise points and league position, you should.

Plus, rightly or wrongly, people tend to get bored of repeat entries very quickly, and they tend to get voted down - even if they're better painted than a 'new' team they come up against...

You need to enter with three teams to participate in the first three rounds. After that, it's up to you if you enter more new teams for each ensuing round, or roll forward one of your original teams.

In this terrible silence I can hear a hundred paintbrushes soaking up colour and flattering models of all shapes and scales.

My progress is a bit erratic. As usual I crated a spreadsheet which I populated with my intended entries. The sailors gave me a spot of grief until I remembered a tiny stash hidden away somewhere, although I had a tense moment when I thought I had just 4! Luckily I was wrong.

The tribe - I was certain I'd give this theme a miss until I realised that the stuff I could enter was staring at me right in the face. I have to thank my wife for these models.

The 'Big Brother' + 5. This was the one I had no qualms about, and then ended up wasting oodles of time on. It's easier when you have no choice! I dug up and starting working on no less than 5 different choices! I finally decided on something related to a project I'd started months back, after rejecting the other hopefuls. One of the sets is still appearing in a non-bonus round, however.

As of last night I had all 52 (10 x 5; the big brother; and one extra model I couldn't leave out) on the painting table, which looked impressive, except that I had no space left thanks to the BSC entry (it's still not found a home in storage!) and a post-LPL project. No major incidents, other than almost skewering myself on a horrendously pointy spear (seriously, it's vicious, needs a health warning and safety gear) and spilling a fine layer of superglue on the floor tiles....help!

One of the sailors got off his base this morning, but he's back on now. Everybody's assembled, but I need to get some basework done before spraying. And of course the weather's rubbish for spraying today....

....(later) I managed to do the spraying when the wind died. First time I sprayed stuff almost in the dark, with flashes of lightning and rumbling thunder.... but they're done now, and safe indoors too  Cheesy
