The TGA Painting Challenge - #1

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.  

back in the early days of TGA we held a painting contest that was really well received and everyone seemed to enjoy.  I'd like to bring this back with a monthly challenge.  

The original thread - 

 

 

I'd like to bring this back and will get things rolling in March.

So you all have a 2 week head start.

 

Good Luck!  

 

 

This thread will remain the as the contest thread.  In future months I will update with a new post and edit this first page.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This months theme is: 

Blood and Glory

Like all fine art, you are free to convey that however you will.  The more creative the better. 

The Rules

Entries must be posted in the results thread - tga.community/entries

Only one image per entry.  Feel free to use a montage, but bear in mind that TGA resizes images to  a maximum of 800x800 so don't make it so big we can't see what it is!

The Final image must also be shared on your Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with a link back to this contest thread and the hashtag of #TGAPaint1.  Please add a link to your your social media post on your entry on here.  (An example of this is waiting for you in the results thread already).

All miniatures entered must be your own work (no getting a commission painter to do something for you)

You need to be a member of TGA.Community in order to enter

Prize Support

Element games and Artis Opus have kindly sponsored this months Painting Contest.  

Element Games are giving a free Start Collecting set to a random entrant.

How to Win.

At the end of the last day of the month the entries thread will be closed and a new Poll thread opened.  This will remain open for 1 week.

The winner of the poll is crowned the TGA Painting Challenge Champion and will be remembered for all eternity.

I too have only just seen it. I shall attempt to get something painted for it ^_^

 

Edit: Does the model painted need to be an AOS model / representing an AOS unit?

If I can  get my Ironjawz boss base done in time it'll be my entry for the month, ultimately it'll come down to when Ghaz releases to convert and paint for it.

It should be a fantasy miniature - or at least something that would fit within the mortal realms

I’ve just finished a project. But as I am at home for three weeks (I’m a teacher and schools in the Netherlands are closed due to covid-19) I might do something else... 

great to hear this is a monthly thing!

You're Dutch? Don't know where you're located but i'd love to play one of your armies. Your converting and painting is amazing. 
Excited to see what you'll submit.

Technical Q, 

How are people embedding their Instagram post into their forum post?

I found the embed code on Instagram. Is it possible to change the TGA post to html? Some forums have a “go advanced” option when making a post.

Or is there another way?

Thanks
