Deadcember 2019

One of the pleasures in life is keeping up with the hobby work of Rab over on the Geekly Digest blog. His blog had not been updated for a while and I located him on Instagram so I duly messaged him about this years Deadcember. Rab replied and explained that due to work and study he is unable to coordinate this year and offered the role with his blessing.

Hmmmm ..... well lets give it ago shall we.

The rules are as follows
On the first of December the premier annual "paint a dead/undead minature" competition will begin!
I'll start an album on blogger of the entries as they come in (once I figure out how to), for users to see and on this thread.
What you need to know if you want to enter:
1. This is a painting challenge for 28mm "scale" miniatures painted during December 2017
1. The theme this year is (un)dead, meaning casualty figures are as welcome as the usual undead monsters and creatures
1. An entry can either be a single model, or a group - there is no advantage or disadvantage inherent to either choice
1. Email a photo of your miniature(s) before painting, and no more than two of the finished item, against a plain background so your painting really shines. Send your pictures to [url]deadcember.entries@gmail.com/url] entries
1. You can enter as many times as you like - the more the merrier - but each entry will be independently considered.
1. The winner will be decided by me and will be based purely on my honest choice of which is my favourite - quality of painting, oldhammeriness, any conversion work, etc. will all feed in to it, I'm sure.

I'm really looking forward to what everyone produces!

May I suggest a more democratic judging process, which would also allow you to participate, by using the voting module on the forum and make it a quick 1 week vote?

Deadcember is live please feel free to email your entries. Plaiecivile, I have only just seen your post, this year I will just copy the existing format but I will take your suggestion and try and figure out the pros and cons of that approach.

Painting for Deadcember for my own satisfaction. If there's any kind of judging, so be it. But I'm aiming more for quantity vs. quality. ;)

Started strong, then stalled a bit due to unexpected career obligations. It's about a 50/50 mix of Oldhammer and newer figures. My opinion is that it's hard for bare skeletons (monsters included) not to fit in with older figures. And I think the Reaper wraiths have a pretty classic feel as well. (Though I am replacing their bendy Bones weapons.)

The remainder of my Deadcember plans. A bit optimistic since I've unexpectedly had to travel for work again. :roll:

Two dragons, undead Lemmy, 25 armored skeleton spear, and as many cavalry as I can repair & paint by the end of the year.
