    So... first - I'm out of ideas for the competition and second - we seem to be losing steam a bit. To deal with both of those issues, I am proposing an open challenge this time.

    Theme: Anything goes

    It doesn't even need to be undead, any painted miniature(s) will do. Get motivated to paint something and enter it here - whatever you have on the working table right now ;) Maybe this way we could reinvigorate our little competition. The winner of this one will choose the next topic and we'll get this rolling again as usual.

    Original models and conversions allowed.

    The Prize: The winner earns the glory and a place in the Hall of Infamy thread. The winner also gets to select the theme of the next painting challenge (note that the winner only has a weekend to present the decision, so please be prepared and available).

    The Rules:
    • All models entered should not have been painted more than a year ago from the date the entry thread is closed. This will not be enforced but violators will politely be asked to retract their entry.
    • All miniatures presented must have been painted by the entrant.
    • Max one entry per person.
    • Max 3 images per entry (including pictures in collages), of reasonable size.
    • No voting for your own entry.
    • No model can be entered into several challenges.
    • For every started set of 5 entries, each member gets a single vote (for example: with 7 entries everyone would get 2 votes).
    • Open entries and open voting. Everyone can see who painted what.
    • Models can be of any manufacture and conversion, but must fulfil all the criteria of the given theme.
    • If no decision on the next theme is made within a week of the winner announcement, the decision falls to the competition organizer.

    The Schedule:
    Week 1, Monday: Theme announcement and entry thread created
    Week 7, Sunday: Entry thread closed. Voting thread opened.
    Week 8, Friday: Voting thread closed. Result announced. Winner asked about next theme.

    This thread is now open for people to post their entries. Please state a name of the miniature along with the pictures (ex: Vampire Lord or Countess Squigmachine). The thread closes on the 18th of March 2018 at (roughly) 23:59 CET.

    I hope with the Legions of Nagash dropping in two weeks, we get some more people joining in.

    Nice idea. I agree with @Alabaster427, probably the new battletome will inspire someone.
    But still good to have an open theme, i will join it for sure.
