PostSubject: Shanty Town Challenge   Sun Sep 25, 2011 10:56 pm

Hello everyone. After the discussion of a new shanty set of plastic models available from a company I was thinking we should have a little shanty challenge. Build models from junk and simple, cheap materials and post it here! We can aim to have them finished in a relatively short period of time. They can be as simple or complex as you like. Post WIP and complete pictures here. I will put some joke competition categories below. When finished post some pictures, some tips on how you made it, and the total cost in supplies used (optional).

The challenge: build a small set of shanty buildings with cheap materials.

The categories:
1. Fastest built (First complete)
2. Most colorful
3. Most corroded
4. Most likely to be used as a hidey hole for a spineless sniper Sniper
5. Lowest cost
6. Least sturdy
7. Best action picture

This challenge is to build something quick, fast, and simple. A nice, versatile, quick, easy piece for your boards. Lets try to get at least 5 entries! There is no date for this to be completed, but lets get some momentum and get them done fairly fast.

GO! Pistol

I like it! I made this thread a Sticky!

To make it more... "official"... I suggest we have people have until October 15th to sign up and then until December 1st to finish it. I think we could have two main winners. A Best Over-All, who earns everyone's admiration & respect, and Best Effort, who could earn a little something-something from volunteers (NO... Developers can't win anything!)

We have wonderful terrain builders and then some of us (ME!) that can't build crap but would like to start (maybe I have some hidden talent!) I would love to see people trying, getting nice critiques and encouragement and improving. Maybe someone COULD win that no-prize price!


Anyway... count me in! I'm moving (LINK) so I may start building stuff by the 10th. I want to build area terrain! I need some place for my Eye Pokers to hide and be stealthy! I want to try for sure Narcissus' techniques, Laney's modular tiles and Komfritten's building techniques!

PS: YES DOZER... I PLAN TO PAINT MODELS TOO!I know I said that a year ago... but THIS time I mean it!

I plan to finish setting my shop by this Friday... then I will take upon this challenge starting next week (I have a techno-gig this weekend).

I have gotten started on mine as well. Originally I had planned to make a compact set that fit into a 3" high box, but now I am leaning towards making a couple of slightly larger pieces as well (as they take up more space!). I have two small pieces partially completed. Just need to figure out some good designs for the larger pieces and figure out how they will all fit together.

I *could* cheat and go on with my shanty compound, or make a new (yet I have no idea what it should be)

The piece will be on a base which fits the rest of my town.

Continuing with the shanty compound is definitely not cheating! Finish it up, push it to new levels, earn unending glory.

Nice idea for a contest! Think I'll skip it though as I still have about 8 or 9 boxes of City of Death material and some fantasy scenery as well. They wouldn't count as cheap. Just Kidding

You could always make a small shanty town build over and around a city of death piece... Not cheap, but still interesting and fits the idea of the challenge

Hmm I like that idea. Might give it a try, but first I want to finish another terrain piece idea I came up with last week.

Haha. I have some built models that are not painted. Maybe we can all try to get something in soon. Quick and ramshackle.

Stryke-Looks good. Lets see some paint on it!
