2012 SCULPTING COMPETITION
« on: June 10, 2012, 04:37:43 PM »


WHEN:

It runs from 1st July 2012 to 1st September 2012



There are 3 designated categories to enter: 

1: Fantasy
2: Modern/Contemporary
3: Sci-Fi


RULES OF ENTRY

1: You must use the female armature HFL503 as a basis for your sculpt. Points will be awarded for how you manipulate the armature, change the pose, convert it, control of putty as well as tool work and attention to detail. The final piece must be recognisable as being derived from HFL503

2: The Final piece must be able to be castable in metal by us. This means you will need to use epoxy putties like Greenstuff or Milliput plus you can add other items like guns or parts of other figures. Fimo is not advised as it can crumble under the pressure exerted on it when a mould is being vulcanised.

3: You must agree that the Final Piece that you submit will be sent to HF for production and you will relinquish all rights to reproduce that piece for personal use or for profit.



WHAT DO YOU GET IN RETURN FOR YOUR HARD WORK?

The winner of each category will get 50 worth of HF vouchers PLUS a resin copy of their winning entry

The runner-up in each category will get 25 worth of HF vouchers PLUS a resin copy of their winning entry

Each entrant who submits a finished piece will receive a metal casting of their figure plus metal castings of each of the winner and runner-up in each category.



HOW DO I ENTER?

Firstly you need to get hold of HFL503. Under UK Gaming Laws we cannot charge you for this.

It is obviously best for us if you can pay for it, however you can also add it free of charge to your normal webstore order by entering the code ARMATURE at checkout. If you choose to purchase the armature for the competition we will add FREE to your order some greenstuff to help you along, just make sure we know by telling us in the 'comments' box at checkout that it is for the competition.

If you just want the armature then email us with your shipping address and we will send it out to you. If you choose this option then please try to enter the competition, we are a small company who cant afford to give away postage costs and armatures to people who just want something for free and who have no intention of entering the competition. I am all for frugality but if that is your intention then that is just tight!

Keep an eye on the Facebook page or here for further information that you might need including image sizes and sending in your entries.

Good luck !

Not for me. Can't sculpt for toffee.

I've been very up for more DOD competitions but it's not run for the last two years, and the one I did come second in, I never got the prizes for!

i hadnt thought about that, but in past competitions people have entered in more than one designation and more than one figure so i guess it is fine!

Thanks, I did flick through the other posts, so must have missed that one!

One month per entry shouldn't be too hard.

Is the start date the date entries are allowed to be entered from?

Looks like one I will be entering I think. If I can get my bottom in gear that is.

Am I reading this correct?
Each entrant will get a metal casting of his/hers own figure + castings of the winners?

Isn't there a specific standard to reach then?
I mean... that's like 7 metal castings in change of a free armature with a green 'blob' stuck on... (not that I think anyone would be so rude to play it that way.. but... you never know... you might have to make moulds for a lot of ... errr  :? (if I enter that is of course  ;)  ) ?

Suberb though!! I'll be ordering a few more armatures now (I should have waited two days longer with my order... *grin*)!

Oh, just to make sure... is "steampunk" considered as part of the fantasy-range?

Thanks!

Nevermind... look on the bright side, at least you have your diorama - you might not have done it if the competition wasnt there
