Next Mini contest

Post by thecircus »

Okay ffolkes, we are going to have a mini painting contest in late October/early November time frame. The theme: Paint the(blank). That's right, all that enter will be painting the same mini. What I need from the membership is what mini should everyone paint?

Let me know what ideas everyone has.

I think we should go for a classic non-unseen Mech,
like the Atlas, or maybe an Awesome.

The Mad Cat is pretty much the flag-bearer of BattleTech. I vote for that.

Any mech from the new box sets. That would seem the best choice because I would bet that alot of people have one of those mechs.

What about Chargers or Victors? Or Pillagers?

Definitely something big and beefy. Pillager, BMer, Atlas are all good

Looking for more ideas. Then I will run a poll. I know everyone likes Atlases, B-Masters, and MadCats, but I am hoping for a contest with a mini that is not seen often.


And it does not need to be an assault mech either.

This sounds to me like, it should be one that isn't an Unseen/Reseen, isn't an Original Sculpt/Resculpt, and has no Variant sculpts. Why? Because not everyone has all sculpts of each mini they've got. I've got an original sculpt Wolfhound, but not the resculpt. Others probably have the resculpt, but not the original. Thus, no Atlas, Banshee, Goliath, Scorpion, or any of the original Clan Minis like Thor, Loki, Vulture, Mad Cat. Well, among others.


So far, Awesome, Charger, Grasshopper, Pillager, Quickdraw, and Victor should fit the bill. I'll toss in Assassin, Cicada, Clint, Cyclops, Dervish, Javelin, Jenner, Trebuchet, Urbanmech, Vindicator, Vulcan, and Whitworth. Yes, I was just looking through TRO 3025. :lol: I had the Centurion on there, then remembered they've got a RAC sculpt, so I took it off.


Will it be a Specific paint scheme also, or an "Anything Goes" deal?

GRUD, you and I are in agreement. That is the kind of contest that I want to see.

And it will be an "anything goes" contest, no particular unit, paint scheme or theme.

Awesome, Charger, Assassin, and Jenner all have resculpt versions.

How about the Hoplite, Shiro, Ocelot, Blade, Valiant, or a Solaris Mech ?

Any sculpt if mech has multiple sculpts.
