Rules and Regs

Rules and Regs

Postby Daryl » 17 Jan 2013

Ends: Midnight Sunday April 7th (uk time)

Its a theme thats been floating about since we started the groupbuilds but never took the plunge to do.. well now is your chance to seriously impress the membership, all you have to do is recreate a photo or movie scene in miniature. :thumbsup:

You do not have to recreate the whole of the photo or scene.. only the main elements.

Please upload a copy of the photo when you submit your entry, if you cannot take a snapshot of a movie scene then please describe it.... most of us will know the memorable scenes from all the usual films... (most famous scenes are on the internet already) :this:

Can be any era, scale, fiction or non fiction... no minimum requirements.

All WIP to be posted in the WIP section of the forum, only completed entries in this section please.

I will be dissapointed if we dont have at least one entry with Zulus :lol: :lol:

A word of warning, a picture of a tank doing nothing in particular just like thousands of other tanks will not be in the spirit of the build, I will delete any entry without explanation which I deem is taking the piss :this: :rules:
The only thing to look forward to… is the past.

An excellent idea Daryl.... :thumbsup:
I won't be in on this one due to time constraints ie spending it on building Wargames pieces for gaming instead (always the priority for me) but look forward to seeing some cracking entries...... :good:

Hi Daryl,
Thanks for organising this one - looking forward to seeing what people come up with.
One question as you haven't specified in the rules: is this restricted to painting up miniatures, or is there any space for scenario-writing?

Cheers

Hi Daryl,

Are we allowed to overlap it with the 2013 project build? I was thinking of a scene from 'The Road', which would overlap in theme, so I'd probably do the figures foe this,m and then include them in the project output for that period?

Cheers,

Xander

Daryl - for those of use who dabble in pre-Fox Talbot days (ie before the invention of photography!) how about extending it to pictures/paintings? A copy of the painting will have to be provided of course.

Can we use a painted miniature and modify it a bit and then incorporate it into a scene with extra models etc? I know its a stretch but I have a good idea (I think) ;)

Would a comic book/graphic novel be OK?
I am thinking about Garth Ennis War Stories, lots of good stuff there.

I guess if same was asked concerning a sven hassel book I'd say yes. So yes you can but it must be clear what you are recreating
