Welcome to the next instance of Turning the World to Darkness competition!

In the Turning the World to Darkness we pick a different theme each time, and the goal is to represent the theme or find ways to turn it to the ways of undead!

The theme of this competition, as chosen by The Sun King, the winner of the July/August 2023 competition, is "Eerie"! 🌙

It is time to bring some truly mysterious and atmospheric works to un-life!
You are also encouraged to use models or parts from whatever army you feel like, not restricted to undead only. It could be a single model or a whole unit of them, of all scales and sizes.

Original models (sculpts) and conversions are allowed.

The Prize: The winner earns the glory and a place in the Hall of Infamy thread and a forum medal once they are available. 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.
  • Open entries and open voting. Everyone can see who painted what.
  • Models can be of any manufacturer and conversion but must fulfill 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, Tuesday: Theme announcement and entry thread created
Week 6, Sunday: Entry thread closed. Voting thread opened.
Week 8, Sunday: 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 entry along with the pictures. The thread closes on the 15th of October 2023 at (roughly) 23:59 CET (but we are not in a hurry, we can easily extend it if someone needs to finish their entry). You can also comment and discuss in this thread, it is not restricted exclusively for entries.

Great! I am in the middle of moving so I might not get time to paint for this one, but if I do I think it is going go be Lady Olynder. 👻

You actually referred to the exact reason why I asked about Terrain 🤣

I actually first wrote that spooky tree part, then went to your army thread the check out if I can maybe guess what you had in mind, saw the giant spooky tree and was like "Yeeaah, that's it." and then came back here to hit reply. 😂

Yeah, links don't work, might have to be something to do with it being linked/embedded from Imgur.
I edited your post, downloaded the images and uploaded them as attachments so should work now.
That's so weird because my other ones have posted properly before this.

Maybe something's up with Carpe Noctem itself?

falling behind on my entry. I have a backup entry already done, bit I'm much less happy about that one, so hopefully I can turn things around.

I'd rather you didn't, at least not on my account. Like I said, I'll have something regardless, and I can always enter it in a future thread if need be.
