I'm going with this definition over the ambiguous term 'scenic base'. Feel free to disagree but for the sake of argument take this as the competition definition:
The model should be based for gaming. You can put this on a display stand, but keep any decoration to the base itself.

eg.- Don't take a 'human-sized' infantry model and stand it atop a pile of slate on a 40mm base with lichen rambling out to a radius of several inches. The idea is to keep the focus on the model itself. Bases, as we know, add a great deal to the completed effect and that is fine, just make sure the figure remains the stand-out element.

Any and every base that looks better than mine. So, if it's got more than Goblin Green paint on it, it's scenic ;)

Ah this is awesome, I only found this forum long after the last Golden Gobbo, would love to enter something.

I've hardly found any time to paint for a few weeks, and I reckon it'll get worse before it gets better. If time permits I'll try to do something C-series monster-sized. If it doesn't then I will try to enter something much smaller!

One of the Illusionist wizards from the C02 Wizards range, this was one of my "holy grail" miniatures after seeing it painted on the Heroes for Wargames book for the first time way back in '95. However, at the time, there was no way I could buy it so fast forward to 2016 when I bought it from someone on the OTC (don't remember who, unfortunately). In the meantime, I also found out he was on the cover of the battle magic book of WFB2nd - this and the HfW photo were the inspiration sources for this paintjob.

Cheers!

Nice miniature! Very good execution!

A question for the organizers: Is an Ogre allowed or is it too big?

I thought I'd give this a go, here's a freshly painted Barakast Hell Rider as my entry. I ended up having to give up on daylight to get the photo, but I think I've managed to get a couple of decent shots in spite of it.
