POLL DESCRIPTION

Please vote for the best five contestants. The top 5 will advance to the second round of voting.

Magc8Ball
  1. I can give pithy responses like "Reply Hazy, Ask Again Later."
  2. I've been looking for an excuse to pick up some more of the iKore lines, and getting some free product will encourage me to work on a full army.
  3. I'm not involved in any other competition so far, I'm new blood!
  4. ...okay, so there were really three.

At any rate, this comes down to the painting, not the wit, so I hope you decide to pick me for the contest. Thanks, all.

Why not?

I think my painting is of a resonable standard, and I would hope you think so too. If you think it's good, then let me through.

If not, I go back to my hole and eat mud. :)

Why Should I become a Finalist?

This is an interesting question. I don't regard myself as the number 1 painter in the world, though I would like to give it ago. I believe my painting skills are just as good as the next person's.

Not many Australians get the opportunity to enter painting competitions outside of Australia, so I also believe this is a good way to get recognition for our country. If I am chosen as a Finalist, it would be the ultimate boost in morale in having achieved such a feat.

To be a Finalist I believe I have what it takes and I hope you all throw a vote my way. Thanks.

The Reason that made me finally enter is I saw the new Celtos Vanir bagpipe-playing Dwarf and decided it was worth public scrutiny to get a chance to paint it.

Other Reasons:

  • I taught my nephew to paint miniatures at age 9. At age 13 he is good enough to make money selling painted miniatures if he had a way to. This contest is a chance to show him how to paint on a deadline and document the steps of your work in pictures so you can showcase it.
  • My best work is whatever I am currently painting, so I don't have pictures of it yet. My current project is 15mm Reaper Shadow Corp Dwarves for a Fantasy Rules! Hill Dwarf army that I am painting in a Highlander theme with each unit wearing a different tartan. I am painting them to play in a tournament next weekend. Actually most of my best work is completed under a deadline for a tourney, convention or demo.
  • I need more reasons to paint on a regular basis. "Sorry, Honey, I can't do that chore today, I have to finish my I-Kore painting contest miniature." Come on guys, help me out and make me a Finalist.

Am finding that I-kore figs tend to bring out the artist and artistry of miniature production in their simplicity, allowing the painter to bring the details to the table.

And for no other reason then I love to paint.

Why?...Because I love to paint, but until you put your piece before the public's eye, do you actually know the standard and quality of your work from the majority's perspective. It's from this crtique that we learn to hone our skills and perhaps, share our talents with another. It's this kind of inspiration and yes, competition, that drives us to exceed our own expectations.

Thank you for the opportunity to learn and teach!

Nekron99

Nekron99 needs to be a Finalist, and Nekron99 says NEED instead of WANT, because it is more than a desire, it is very much a matter of life or death.

Seriously though, Nekron99 has never won a contest, but has entered several, and Nekron99 would like to match Nekron99's skills with others out there. Since we are all painting the same miniature, the painters will separate from the modellers, and there can be only one!

Vote for Nekron99!

I have been painting for almost 15 years. I enjoy painting anything and everything. I do not compete much, I am not sure why?

I have taught countless people to paint and improve their work over the years. I also do commission work and paint a ton for friends to play with. I have also worked briefly in the gaming industry and love any and all games.

I would love to have a chance at painting and showcasing some really nice miniatures. This contest seems as fun as it is challenging. I feel that my work is above average, but many tell me it is better then that. I doubt I could win a Golden Demon or anything.

I don't like shouting victory without having it, but...Why I will win?

I want to win this Contest just because I love painting and my techniques are great. I will paint the miniatures with the best of me, and you will be surprised for that. It will be hard to win this Contest, but I'm sure I will be the winner.

I'm sure!!!
