  1. My dog has a taste only for painted minis...
  2. Results & next round will be up today It takes time to work through everything and get results calculated, posted, next round stuff set up etc.
  3. Round Four begins today!! We've almost made it to the end, and everyone is displaying their Iron! After this round finishes we will move on to the finals! Who will win? Who will place? Who will be eliminated? Thank you again to our extremely talented judges, our wonderfully talented contestants, and our just plain wonderful community of voters! Iron Painter can't be what it is without all of us working together. Yet again we see some awesome feedback between painters, as well as encouragement and friendly competition. These are part of what makes Iron Painter so special. Below you can find the Round Four theme and pairings. A link to the round three results can be found at the bottom of this post. But now it is time for the part you guys all REALLY care about, the theme! Theme We have all had that morning where you can't find your keys, traffic is bad, and then it starts raining. It just seems like everything goes wrong all at once. Well get ready to channel that into this round's theme, Murphy's Law. Murphy's Law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong". You have your theme, so it's time to get painting! Submissions Round Four Gold: http://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/65-round-4-murphys-law-gold-finished/ Round Four Silver: http://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/66-round-4-murphys-law-silver-finished/ Round Four Bronze: http://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/67-round-4-murphys-law-bronze-finished/ Round Four Eliminated: http://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/68-round-4-murphys-law-eliminated/ Round Four WIP: http://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/64-round-4-murphys-law-wip/ Pairings Gold Silver Bronze Reminders Again a few reminders because it never hurts! 1) All submissions should be one image. This could be a collage of multiple angles, but it should be one image. It should be submitted as a .jpeg and no larger than 7000 x 7000 pixels. 2) Work in Progress photos (WIP) and sharing is not only allowed but encouraged. This contest is not anonymous so share as much as you want! You should be proud of your Iron Painter work, and we want you to be able to share how awesome it is. 3) Some participants will not finish their painting in time. It happens! Anyone who does not finish their model automatically loses their Round and is eliminated from the competition (not just dropped down a Tier) If there are multiple DNFs in a Round, their opponents who did finish their models will be randomly paired up against each other, as long as they are in the same Tier. Iron Painter is a competition, and if your opponent couldn’t handle the pressure, we’re going to go ahead and get you an adversary that is made of sterner stuff. It is possible that this will still result in a participant without an opponent, in which case that participant will automatically win that round (assuming they aren’t disqualified by the Easy Way Out restriction; see below). EASY WAY OUT Any submission that is up against a DNF may be disqualified if it gets a total score of less than 12 points (averaged). This counts as a loss. This rule is intended to stop people who see that their opponent will be a DNF from taking the easy way out and submitting a “meh” piece of work. 4) An image should be of either a single model, diorama or scene. MULTIPLE MODELS THAT ARE NOT SET IN A SCENE OR DIORAMA WILL RESULT IN A DISQUALIFICATION!! 5) If you have any questions please ask me! I want to help, and make sure there is no confusion.

  4. What a strange couple of weeks! Thank you so much for your continued participation in this contest.

  8. Yet another amazing round of Iron Painter! Again thank you for those who continue to participate. The theme "Stranger Things" definitely led to some strange works! Some were creepy, some were silly, but they were all fantastic. But it's time to put aside any binge watching that some of you did, set the brushes down, and take a deep breath. Now it is time to vote! Again you will only be voting on the bronze submissions. Make sure to read this and the information below before you head over to the polls. A reminder that our gold and silver voting will be handled by our esteemed panel of judges. If you want to take a look at the awesome entries though head on over to the galleries! Gold: http://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/60-round-3-stranger-things-gold-finished/ Silver: http://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/61-round-3-stranger-things-silver-finished/ A note that the silver bracket was changed to include repairings based on DNF's and drops. This means some of the pairings in silver will be different than the original pairings posted in the announcement thread. @Mr Lucky, @warrior4520 and @Hero of the Rev were moved to silver due to DNF's or Drops in silver. The updated bracket is included below. For bronze the voting will be handled via the Round Three Voting - Poll. There will be a link at the bottom of this post. We have attached images for each entry, and all you have to do is choose your favorite out of EACH head to head pairing. Please make sure you vote in each head to head. Keep in mind Bronze had some repairings as well. These can be seen in the poll itself.

  12. Another Friday is upon us! That means we have yet another amazing preview from The Other side. And this week we are looking at one of the units of the King's Empire who help to support the war effort. Winning a war is more than just having the biggest or most guns. It's about having information. The Field Intelligence Corps helps to make sure that happens. Of course they also have a big gun for when that is the correct answer to the problem! Let's take a look! Not every part of the military is focused on combat. The goal of the Field Intelligence Corps is to keep their Commanders appraised of enemy actions and threats so that the Empire's forces can be used to their full effect. Using espionage, signal flags, and a trained eye, the Intelligence Corps can greatly undermine enemy plans through the simple use of observation and communication. They are armed with high powered SMLE Mark II rifles for when the fighting gets thick, though they are often tasked with trying to eliminate key enemy personnel rather than front line soldiers. On the tabletop, the Field Intelligence Corps specializes in card manipulation. With the ability to draw cards and make the opponent discard them, they help to tilt the resource element of the game towards the Empire's advantage. If they flip to Glory, they also gain the ability to manipulate the Operation itself.
  13. Friday Preview - Armored Whelks

    But actually this is the GH unit I'm most excited for.
  14. Friday Preview - Armored Whelks

    All I know is today's post might make @Mason a little crabby.
  15. Hey everyone! Today we're taking a look at another Pursuit from the upcoming Through the Breach supplement, Above the Law. The Guild has lots of red tape and politics, but sometimes it needs raw firepower. For that purpose, the Gunner Pursuit is just what they need. Gunners are a combat Pursuit that focuses on the use of chain guns, cannons, ribauldequins, and other heavy guns. As one might expect, the Gunners can crank up the number of attacks produced by automatic weapons, but many of their Talents are actually somewhat defensive: the Behind the Gun Talent grants the Gunner the equivalent of Heavy Armor whenever she's wielding a Heavy Gun weapon, for instance. Most of the time, the easiest way to deal with ranged weapons is to close to melee range in order to shut down melee attacks and force the opponent to waste valuable time swapping to a melee weapon. Gunners, however, begin with the Heavy Weaponry Talent, which allows them to wield their Heavy Gun weapons as if they were Heavy Melee weapons. Why go through the hassle of swapping to a melee weapon when you can just hit the opponent with the heavy chunk of metal you're already holding? The rest of the Gunner Pursuit is essentially a collection of useful abilities that are applicable to both rapid-fire Gatling weapons and heavy cannons in even measure. Annoyed that you can't just pick up a cannon and carry it around with you? The Walking Artillery Talent will let you stride into combat with that cannon barrel slung under your arm without need for a weapon brace. Want to charge into combat while firing a Gatling gun at full speed? The Fusillade Advance Talent lets you declare ranged attacks with the Charge Action. Swarmed by a horde of baddies? Use Mow Down to take a shot at every enemy in range.
