    And we're going again with the competition!

    The Theme: Undead Artillery / Warmachine

    As it says on the tin. Cannons, catapults, ballistae, trebuchets, steam tanks - crewed by undead, made of undead, powered by undead, using undead as ammunition - all kinds of artillery and engines of war are allowed as long as undead are involved ;) Those can be self-sufficient units, fillers to other units, dioramas etc. Original models and conversions allowed. If someone wants to be creative with the topic - think things like "he's more of a war machine than a man" - I don't see why it shouldn't be allowed.

    The Prize: The winner earns the glory and a place in the Hall of Infamy thread. The winner also gets to selected 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.
    • 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 6th of August at (roughly) 23:59 CET.

    I extended the deadline by two days of weekend, to get that last good chance to finish the entry ;)

    @Adam_Barrow My supernatural senses told me you would like the theme :D :D
    @Shadespyre Yeeeehhh kind of. As Borgnine said, there's plenty of possibilities ;) I've chosen that one because of my upcoming change to KoW, where undead can have our beloved catapults and stuff, and I have one of that kind laying around here unassembled, and hope for the same motivation boost like on the last challenge ;)

    Me too!
    It won't be the most original unit ever (no conversions or captured enemy's artillery), but who cares? ;)
