This is the November 2014 Picture of the Month contest.

How to submit an image?
Just add a geeklist item, where it asks for a ImageID add the number of your photo there. Use [imageid=xxxxxx medium] in the body of the List Entry, where "xxxxxx" is the ImageID number, to show the image at a reasonable size as that helps people judge your image better, and make sure to remove the space. If you have questions please geekmail me and I will help.

Rules:

1) You can only submit a single entry with only one image in it.

2) That image has to be one of your own. If you like Laura Foobar's picture of dogs playing Die Macher, ask her to submit it.

3) The image was uploaded during the month in question.

4) Images from your User Gallery are not eligible, but images from any other Gallery that has successfully passed the image modding process are eligible - Game, Designer or Publisher.

5) Users may vote for (give a thumb up to) as many entries as they wish.

6) Winners will be declared when the next month's list goes up.

7) You may not offer any kind of inducement/bribe to users in return for their vote(s), but you can invite other users to participate and vote. Feel free to spread the word!

8) Entries should not be edited once submitted

9) I will randomly reorder this list so that the first-come first-thumbed effect is lessened.

10) This contest is open to all subdomains on the geek, so lets see what the best images look like and remember if you really like the image to click on it and also give the original a thumb.


Prizes

First place: 50
Second place: 25
Third place: 10


PS- Want to be involved in in photo contests throughout the year or want to see all of the winners of previous years?
Then make sure you subscribe to this GeekList.

GOOD LUCK!

This image highlights a set of Custom-designed/labeled Wine Bottles set to match the winery portrayed in the game down even to the exact fonts used for the winery logo on the wine bottle on the box cover. These wine bottles were used during the game and this picture was on the wall to add the ambiance of 'being at' the winery.

Some colored filters on the flash units to add some pizzazz. The Tantive IV in the background has red filters facing the rear to try to simulate some engine activity/thrust.

The depth of field was to try to get some scale but maybe it was a bit much.

Here is my entry. This is from Warhammer 40k. The Orks are fun race to paint because there are just... nuts.

When a Space Marine is gravely wounded, they will place his crushed body in a Dreadnaught, which has systems to keep him alive and allow him to fight on as a walking tank.

Orks, well, orks take a different approach. There are strata to Ork life. There are the Nobs, which are big Orks that bully the others. There are regular Orks, there are Gretchin, (the goblins of 40k), smaller cousins to the Orks and then there are the Grots, which are smaller versions of Gretchin.

The Orks like the idea of dreadnaughts stomping around shooting stuff up, so they stuff a Gretchin inside what they call a Killer Kan and let him lose. Naturally they go insane and start attacking anything, even other gretchin, but the Ork Meks that wired them in look on this with almost paternal pride.

Grots are semi intelligent and have innate mechanical skills. When you are building your army, one of the things you can add to your Killer Kan for a few points is a Grot Oiler, which allows you to mitigate some damage.

I cobbled this model together, and if you look closely you can see one Grot holding on for dear life while trying to knock a stuck missle free so that when it's launched it doesn't just detonate right then and there.

Standing on the missile platform is another helpful Grot picking out targets... while standing in the missile exhaust blast zone. The life of a Grot can be very exciting! Short.. but exciting!

Originally I wanted to add this image, but I wasn't really satisfied (taken in bad light conditions so it was impossible to save properly as well as the background at the set was not good enough so it had to be covered up)... in the end I picked this one of a vintage, Danish Chinese Checkers game;
