  1. Hey Guys, the Timer is not correct and is the process of being updated, the round still lasts the same time (2 Weeks) and will end on Nov 26th as per the Iron Painter Rules thread, sorry about any confusion. The timer will be updated to the proper time soon. Edit: It is up to date and brushes are down at 11:59 PST on Nov 26th, sorry about any confusion.
  2. It's time to announce the final round of Iron Painter 2018! Can you believe we're already here? It seems like yesterday when we were setting everything on fire with Round 1's Burn it All theme. But here we are. The grand finale! The last hurrah! The last act! The home stretch! The end boss! In Round 5, we will answer the ultimate question: who will be this year's Iron Painter? In a few short weeks, we'll have our answer. As always, a big thank you goes out to the judges, the contestants, and our voters. Without each and every person who chooses to participate in this great event, Iron Painter would not be what it is today. You can find the Round 5 theme and pairings below. A link to the Round 4 results can also be found at the bottom of the post. But let's talk about what's truly important: Round 5's theme! Theme SMOKE AND MIRRORS. Just as the name suggests, there are many ways to interpret this theme, and we can't wait to see what you paint-wizards come up with. Now... Iron Painters, it's time to get assembling, converting, modeling, and painting! Submissions Galleries to come Round Five Gold: https://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/122-round-5-gold-finished/ Round Five Silver: https://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/123-round-5-silver-finished/ Round Five Bronze: https://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/124-round-5-bronze-finished/ Round Five Eliminated: https://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/125-round-5-eliminated-finished/ Round FiveWIP: https://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/gallery/category/121-round-5-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.

  3. As always, I want to begin by thanking everyone for their participation! There have been plenty of awesome, eye-catching pieces to be had last round. We have posted only the results in this thread. The Round Five Announcement can be found here: https://themostexcellentandawesomeforumever-wyrd.com/topic/141506-round-five-announcement/ During this round, the entries in the gold tier got downright dirty. Each entry knew the lowdown and went full hog with their quality. But only one can reign as the dirtiest! I am going to remind people of the head to heads, and list the winner next to it, as well as provide the bracket with new pairings. A reminder that the people who lose in gold, will be put into the silver bracket to continue competing. Rzaba, 20 (20, 20, 20) vs Whirler 17.67 (16, 19, 18) > Rzaba Wins! ConqueringWyrm, 18.67 (20, 20, 16) vs Nathillien, 13.67 (14, 14, 13) > ConqueringWyrm Wins! Silver Tier The dust and dirt have settled, leaving behind only the fantastic painted models done across the board in the silver tier. But remember that even those who lose this round will continue to duke it out in bronze! Below are the results. Bozydar, 15 (18, 17, 10) vs Darklord, 19.33 (23, 22, 13) > Darklord Wins! icatsai, 14.67 (15, 18, 11) vs Zanna 13 (12, 14, 13) > icatsai Wins! Sleepwalker 14.33 (14, 14, 15) vs LadyDraco, 14.67 (14, 16, 14) > LadyDraco Wins! helldrad, 12.33 (13, 14, 10) vs Colour Charge 19 (21, 19, 17) > Colour Charge Wins! Dirty, DNF vs Guslado, 12.33 (14, 15, 8 ) > Guslado Wins! Radamset, 10.33 (11, 11, 9) vs Ayvran 9 (9, 10, 8 ) > Radamset Wins! Bronze Tier The entries in the bronze tier during this round showed that you could be (low)down but not out. These entries are fighting tooth and nail for a better chance at the raffle. A reminder that if you lose in bronze, you are eliminated but should STILL continue to submit works. If you do not complete every round, you will not be eligible for the raffle. Natsugawa vs domperignome > Natsugawa Wins! Darthslider vs Ynysley > Ynysley Wins! Corrogon vs bas_2312 > Corrogon Wins! ArD vs Thimblesage > Thimblesage Wins! ReservoirDog vs Gos > ReservoirDog Wins! Malvain vs Senya1987 > Senya1987 Wins! Fateweaver vs generalbear > Fateweaver Wins! Masskit vs glamage > masskit Wins! Euclid vs Arclight > Euclid Wins! A quick reminder that even if you lost in bronze, you can and should still participate by submitting a miniature for every round in order to be eligible for the raffle at the end!

    Just want to point out that the index specifies the Initiative Callout is on Pg 48 and on Pg 66.
  5. You all know the lowdown. The timer has ended, and so too have the paintbrushes. I want to thank everyone who participated in this round. Everyone took this theme for a wild ride, and it was incredible to see how it was interpreted. Some played nasty tricks while others were just straight up and down filthy. But now it's time to see just how dirty we got this round. That's right; it's voting time. Round Four submissions are over! Once again, we're voting in the Bronze Category this time around.
