I've been thinking about launching a scenery building contest... What would you like to see? Should it be very free-form, or more structured? One option would be to say that all pieces must essentially fit on an area the size of a CD, but that would stop people entering larger creations. Any thoughts would be appreciated!  Smiley

Sounds interesting !
I'd like to do a scenery or two specific to Anyaral. A contest would be the better kick in the butt to build them !

As I mentioned before, I sure would like to see a scenery contest!
I think you should go for the free-form. As it is the first scenery contest you are organising it would be very cool to see what everyone comes up with.
Perhaps you can split the contest in two, one for small terrain and another for the larger pieces.
CD size is a good standard in my opinion.

Let's say almost CD, so I don't have to scrap my bases of the houses Wink

But I agree on a free-form is best too, let's come up with real gaming tables and Delgon fortresses later Smiley

Before replying I have just checked whether my building made from a drinking chocolate container will fit on a CD or not.
Fortunately it does, so the CD size format works for me.  Smiley
Hopefully, if there is a contest I might actually get around to finishing it.  Cool

Cool idea.

Not sure about sizes though if you allow large entries (a tad rude perhaps) then you'll need to have a suitable building window.

I like the idea for 2 entries, maybe one free and the other restricted to max of the CD size base.

It does get the brain whizzing...

I agree! Building terrain takes time, so a few days off during the holiday months sure will help contestants to finish their projects.

sounds good to me as well.  things took a busy a turn for me when spring rolled around, but I expect my schedule to become less involved for most of July into August..... so hopefully I can finish my forces and create some terrain.

How does this look as a plan? Any final suggestions before I launch the contest?

Landscapes of Anyaral 2015 - Scenery Building Contest

Earlier this year we ran a very successful painting challenge that saw a great number of Anyaral’s denizens getting a lick of paint! These nicely painted models do need their own piece of Anyaral to fight over, so as promised I’m going to run a contest to encourage you to get building some scenery!

The challenge (should you wish to accept it) is to build some Anyaral-themed scenery. You could start turning those hoarded pringles tubes into a grand fubarnii house, construct a dhogu campsite, a delgon lookout post or a bustling market. You could even set to work creating a devanu tower hidden in the depths of the Argoran wastes. There are no specific constraints on entries and some well-constructed characterful little pieces of scenery would be just as welcome as larger more-ambitious pieces.

The best entries will win Twilight related goodies as well as a special preepree trophy that can only be won in these sorts of contests! There will be a vote on the forum at the end of the contest and there will also be a few random prizes for entries that I think capture the feel of the world particularly well.

The contest is going to run until the 24th August, which gives you a couple of months over the summer to create something special.

Ask for help!

If you’ve got a grand idea or are searching for inspiration then just ask on the forum or on facebook. It’s a great opportunity to bounce ideas around and get feedback which could help you turn a good idea into something even better.

As many of you have seen, I’ve had lots of fun little bits and pieces cast over the years, some of which have never really been released. These include lots of random little bottles, tools and extras, as well as plates of tasty looking fruit or grubs. If you would like a chance to win a few of these little pieces then show off some work in progress during the challenge. If I’m suitably impressed I’ll send a few bits your way!
