Deadcember 2016 is over - we have a champion!

Mister Rab wrote:Start your paintbrushes, ladies and gentlemen - Deadcember is here!

Rules:
    paint something undead
    the optional theme is "the quick and the dead" (e.g. I'm painting cavalry)
    post a picture here by midnight, 31st December 2016 (GMT)
    add the button/sticker thing to your signature (image to follow)
    my favourite (purely subjectively) will win a prize (an undead ogre and I have the offer of something to add to that as well)

I will be collating entries from here, the Oldhammer FB group, and direct submissions via my blog. I will set up a gallery of images on my blog to keep it all in one place and let you know when I update it.

Have fun, and I can't wait to see what you talented lot come up with!



It's back! The season of Deadcember is almost on us once again (time flies when you're a reanimated corpse), so it's time to get planning what you're going to paint or write this year.

Last year there were some spectacularly boney contributions so I wanted to sneak in a reminder to give you time to plan. I thought that a theme beyond just "undead" might be a good way to give people focus so I've chosen "the quick and the dead". Something speedy, then, be that zombie dragons, skeletal chariots, ghost knights, carrion, whatever. There will be a prize this year - one of Justin Coutange's lovely oldhammery skeleton ogres - for the entry I choose as my favourite on purely subjective grounds. There'll also be a badge for your signature if you're very good. Details of how to enter your photos to follow, but here's a cool painting Zhu did for me last year to get you in the mood...

Re: Deadcember 2016

Would a quick Wardancer being pursued by a dead Skellie count?

Absolutely - I know that identifying as dead/undead/living impaired is a hot topic among vampires at the moment, and who am I to judge? ;)

Um, I'd rather it was a dead wardancer! Pesky things :twisted:

Right then, I'll make a start
