Taking part is easy:

1) Add the game of the miniature you painted as an item to the list.

2) Add the picture of your painted miniature in the comment section for that game.

(use the format [imageid=xxxxxmedium] where xxxxx is the id of the picture)

That way people will be able to better judge your work. Medium should be sufficient please do not use large.

Rules:

1) The image you submit must have been uploaded during March 2013. Gallery images are ok but submitted images are preferred, as they've gone through the geek mod process it guarantees the picture quality and it's also easier to check the submission date. The contest will end on April 30th.

2) You are the artist. Please do not submit miniatures painted by someone else.

3) One entry per person. You may, however, use up to two pictures of your entry to the front and back of the miniature.

4) The winner will be the picture with the most thumbs. You can thumb as many as you like.

5) If you can; include the make of the mini, scale and what paints you used in your entry.

Please keep the photo editing to a minimum. A border or colour balance is fine but if too much is done then it casts doubt over how much of the paint job is real. If need be put the unedited photo in your gallery and link to it from there, thanks.

Prizes:

Any tips received will awarded as prizes as follows:

1st place: 50%
2nd place: 37.5%
3rd place: 12.5%

So if the tip total comes to 40 geekgold 1st will get 20, 2nd 15 and 3rd 5 etc.

Geekgold is also given for honourable mentions so even if you don't feel confident about winning you might still get a prize.

I'll round down tips and put the remainder towards future prizes.

Judging at the end of the month and winners will appear in the next months list.

1st place will now also receive an exclusive microbadge! mb

Please give this geeklist a thumb to help get it to the front page. The more contestants the better!

And don't forget to click on the images you like and give the actual images thumbs up as well!

The taosists from Ghost Stories were my first entry to this competition ever. They were painted clean and boring. This time I tried a little freehand.

As allways they were painted with Vallejo acrylics and Citadel washes.

Edit: Spelling.

Hello one and all.

This is my first entry in a Golden Turtleback, and I'm very happy to be taking part. I'm also very much looking forward to seeing the other submissions.

As for my entry:-



This is a 25mm Giak from Citadel Miniatures's Giak Attack Adventure Set, as released as part of their Lone Wolf range of miniatures back in 1985. It is painted using Citadel paints.

Thanks, and best of luck to all.

These minis were painted for a custom Pond Hockey game i did for commission. The two teams are the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings. They are 28mm pewter miniatures painted with Anita's Acrylic Craft Paint. The ice was also painted as the Penguins home ice.

I finished the cast of Fury of Dracula this month for a friend



They're slightly smaller than the figures I normally paint and the plastic feel too light in play so I added a 1p piece to each base and felted the underside.

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

This 28mm North Star miniature was painted with vellajo colours (including armour colours), P3 paints and foundry paints. I used Vellajo inks and the old GW Devlan mud wash.

Royal Rumble for the Photo. Like other users I use Vallejo acrylics and Citadel washes.

Edit
