Nothing planned at the moment....I'm thinking we need atleast 5 entrants to make it worth while....and going by last time I think with most people working/living life we need minimum of a month for the comp....it I get enough interest I'll set up a prize and details

I'd be in. I've only recently started customising figures other than Transformers (have done heaps of those). I've only just found this forum so I missed the last one... what sort of comp are we talking about?

I'm thinking for the first one again we have an open book,
-make who/what ever you want - be it a new or made up character/ or your version of an existing one (comic/movie/book etc) -just some sort of custom action figure - winner to choose the next topic and recieve a prize

or we can go with the previous subject of monsters - .... whatever everyone is happy with let me know -

- using whatever scale/base fodder you like. Some modification/addition etc required, I think it's reasonable to require more than a repaint

-Either we get members to vote or I'll secure an external judge

-Submissions - images showing work in progress
final figure
- Recipe - what you used parts/sculpting/materials



....and Xenoviper you can't enter unless you promise to work blind to give the rest of us a chance..... Very Happy

So 5 members tentatively on board anyone else

Crapola... I haven't even thought about what to do yet. I'm currently customising (renovating) my house and I can't even climb into the room where all my figures and customising gear is. This is going to have to be one of those last minute numbers.

When I get around to it, how many WIP pics should I take?

Same. I'll probably just go with some simple mods and repaints.

Not even close to WIP stage yet. I've basically been too busy at work (trying to organise my flight out to the US) so I haven't had much time to spare. I'll hopefully be able to put some time in over the next few days. When are entries due?

I think I said the 15th so still a couple of weeks to go....I used airdrying putty type stuff for my arm and now the outer layer is dry but still think the inner layer will be wet so will leave it a couple of days before I start carving into it.....so plenty of work still ahead of me.

Ok, I think I've left my run late enough... time to get started! I'm going to try and do all my bashing and sculpting tonight then carve, sand and paint tomorrow night. This will be the first non-transformer custom I've attempted but I'm quite keen to get into it.

Do we know yet where to post our entries?

I can't wait to see everyone's work.

I not only finished my entry last night but I also finished another repaint that I'm much happier with (I won't enter it as it has no modifications), and started a couple of other customs. Now that I'm getting into it, I think my first attempt looks quite lame but I'm enjoying doing them.
