Iron Painter 2018 - Round Three Announcement

Recommended Posts

October starts today, and so does Round Three of Iron Painter 2018!  It's hard to believe but we are already at the halfway point.  Only two more rounds remain!  Who will win?  Who will place?  And who will be eliminated? We want to say thanks again to our awesome judges, the Iron Painter participants, and all of our voting community members. It has been really awesome to see yet again this year, that the Iron Painter community is one that really supports each other, and revels in the awesome hobby we all share!  This announcement contains the round three theme and pairings.  A link to the round two 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!


October, as everyone knows, is the spookiest month of the year. So how better to celebrate the month than with the theme Monster Mash?! What truly monstrous creations will you be bringing in Round Three? We are excited to see what ghouls and ghasts you invite over for your painting sessions!  Now Iron Painters, it's time to get assembling, converting, modeling and painting!

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).


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.

Just ordered the perfect model for this round, got the notice it might take 4 weeks. Looks like plan B.

Yeah, I also had some thoughts on what to do but realized I couldn't get what I wanted in time.  So I'm going thru what I have on hand to see what I can work with and I don't have any very exciting ideas yet.
