5 little monkeys jumping on the bed. One little monkey fell and bumps his head. Mama called the Doctor and the Doctor said, No more monkeys jumping on the bed.

I think people should vote for me because my wife will absolutely kill me if you don't ("Alright, nobody move or the husband gets it!") and because it'll be a good excuse to start a new army ("But honey, you already have enough unpainted figures!") and because my oldest daughter, who loves monkeys, will throw a temper tantrum if you don't ("I'll hold my breath until you vote for my dad!"). Besides, I'm actually pretty good at this.....

Because I'm the better painter. No brag, just fact.

You should vote for me to punish me. I already have too many miniatures to paint and I know everyone would want me to have to paint more. Here is an example of what I do on a good day, what I do on a bad day goes on Ebay.

I present you my 9th mini ever painted (count at around 12). You should vote for me, for I need a change from Chainmail and I would really appreciate a kick to restart painting. (My workbench is a mess and needs a real big cleaning with new... oh well, need to put work in it.) Anyway, so if I get selected it will help me get back to painting, and it will be a great test to see what I can do on the same mini as other. That would be great fun. Thank you.

I do excellent ebony colored flesh and hair.

I am familiar with Romans and how to paint their armor.

I paint in a clear and clean style.

I'd like to think that I earned a spot in this contest by suffering the most. I painted 600 Old Glory Samurai to the level that you see in my entry.

I missed the entire year of 1997 for this hobby . . .

I can paint a contest-winning unit. I look forward to the opportunity to showcase my painting skills against the other contestants.

Prizes are nice and all, but personally I think the competition is the best part. Thanks for your consideration.

A few reasons:

  1. I'm fast enough to complete the figures in time
  2. I'll paint within the lines (specifications)
  3. I've got a soft spot for anything that wears Lorica Segmentata armour
  4. I've got the only remaining copy of Phil Barker's The Armies and Enemies of the Simian Legionairies & am guaranteed to get the paint scheme right!!

This appears to be fun challenge in store for the five selected, something I hope to be a part of.

The sample I have provided is from two years ago, and I've only gotten better in the meantime. Thanks for your support, and to all of those that have taken the time (and courage) to enter.

Dear ThuMPers, distinguished guests, intelligentsia and artists. I appeal to you to choose me out of, dare I say it: sheer pity. I've been unemployed now, lo these past 5 months. While I wouldn't want your pity for that, for many of my IT brothers here on this site share a similar fate many for much longer periods of time.

Nay, I have a more serious problem. I am about to die. Yes! Yes, it is true. You see, with so much free time I've been painting my lead. All of it. I am nearly out of unpainted lead. Have you ever heard of a living wargamer who has painted all of his lead? Of course not! The moment the last bit of lead is painted then * POOF * the Archangel of Wargaming comes down from on high and strikes you dead on the spot.

Can you let that happen to me? I beg of you, list me as a finalist so that I may have lead to paint and may yet live another few days!

Because my reasons list is smaller than Paintbeast's.

I have the time and the abilities to paint these minis to the standard they deserve.
