    ON SALE NOW: £1.30

    Welcome to issue 30 of Figure Painter Magazine.

    One of the goals of FPM is to show you, our readers, things that you may have never seen before and introduce you to new ideas. That’s why this issue is a bit of a special one dedicated to flachen zinnfiguren or flat tin figures. In this issue we have a show report from the Mecca of this sometimes overlooked part of our hobby, Kulmbach. We also have instruction about how to sculpt a demi round and even a guide to buying them. Jessica Rich shares with us how she painted her first flachen zinnfiguren and this month’s insight is with Penny Meyer, who was awarded Best of Show for flachen zinnfiguren at Kulmbach earlier this year.

    We have all the usuals reviews, views and news and interviews; in fact, we speak to Karol Rudyk, whom we last spoke to in issue one, about his latest project that we can exclusively reveal in this issue!
    Also we have a breath taking tutorial from Adrian Hopwood about his sensational rendition of Hush and one from our very own Italian Stallion, Davide Rainone on how he recently painted his award winning Dr. Doom bust.

    All this for £1.30...we must be mad!

    Welcome to issue 27 of Figure Painter Magazine.

    We have a pretty cool issue for you this month, which kicks off with a fantastic Insight interview with Italian painter Francesco ‘Franciuus’ Farabi who, I’m sure you’ll all agree, is a true master of his art. We also have interviews with Marrow Production, the guys behind the new Journey, Wrath of Demons board game and someone whom I consider a really top bloke.

    Hi all,

    Perhaps beyond expectations but it is that time of the year again:

    GothiComp 2015

    Following are the rules for GothiComp 2015, feedback appreciated:

    Rules GothiComp 2015.

    This is the eleventh annual GothiComp, and will be run in a similar way to last years events.

    The Goal
    The general aim of this competition is simply to encourage players to get painting and show off what they can do. I encourage people to enter no matter how good or bad their painting and converting skills are.

    The Deadline
    This competition will open right now: june 12, 2015 .The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 30st September 2015.

    The Categories

    Regarding all categories & entries: SpaceShip miniatures from all kind of companies are accepted.

    General note: we encourage new ships not been shown in a previous edition of GothiComp. Of course vessels that have been completely repainted are allowed again.

    The Capital Ship Category
    A bit different then previous years: this category is for entries that are larger then 5cm in any direction. For example an Battlefleet Gothic Imperial Lunar Cruiser belongs in this category just as a Firestorm Armada Aquan Destroyer.

    The community will vote on the entries as usual.

    The Small ship category
    Also a bit different then last year: in this category entries will need to be ships smaller then 5cm in every direction. As an example a Battlefleet Gothic Imperial Sword Class Frigate or an Intruder model from Ninjamagic. Entries may consist from 1 to 6 models.

    The community will vote on the entries as usual.

    In addition, there will be a 'conversion prize' chosen from either category. This will be a token prize for one entry based on the skill and style of any conversion work which has gone into the vessel, in an effort to encourage creativity in modelling as well as painting. This will be judged by a select panel. All entries are automatically submitted into both competitions simultaneously. The judges for the conversion prize are myself, Cybershadow and a third person.

    The fleet category
    And also here a change: a fleet is a group of spaceship vessels. The entry must consist of at least 7 models of any size. But for the purpose of a gallery it is ofcourse nice to see entries following somewhat of a guideline from their respective game or resembling historical or current day fleets in terms of numbers and ship selection.

    The community will vote on the entries as usual.

    The Prizes
    Thanks to Battlegroup Helios (Mangozac & Vaaish) and Malika we have some great prizes this year:

    Sponsored by Battlegroup Helios (http://www.battlegrouphelios.com/):
    -> Small category: 1x Pack of Battlegroup Helios Helian Corvettes[/li]
    -> Capital category: 1x Battlegroup Helios Helian Dreadnought[/li]
    -> Fleet category: A selection of conversion parts from Mangozac at
    Resin Addict

    Sponsored by Malika:
    -> Conversion category: 3x Gunship Destroyers & 3x Carrier Destroyers

    And finally one extra bonus prize to be won, sponsored by Gothmog Lord of Balrogs:
    ASC 2.0
    Submit your best example of what is in, or going to be in, the Additional Ships Compendium 2.0. This can be a conversion or a proxy, in either the capital ship or small ship categories. They do not have to match the diagrams in the document but must clearly represent a ship class/unique vessel found in the ASC 2.0. All entries except those made by Gothmog Lord of Balrogs will be eligible to win. Judging will be done by Gothmog, but the voting results will be heavily considered. Particular considerations will be given to vessels that truly capture the "Gothic" or "Grim-dark" feel of the Warhammer 40,000 Universe."

    For more information on the Additional Ship's Compendium 2.0 and to see if your entry into the competition is applicable, visit the following thread:


    The Pictures
    You should submit a single picture per entry, no more. Each photograph should be no more than 3 megabytes large. The pixel width should not exceed 1024 x 768.

    The Submission
    To submit a picture of your vessel to this competition, you simply mail it at: comps@tacticalwargames.net

    Make sure the header of the email contains the following: ship name / class name

    Note that you do not have to be a member of the
    boards to enter this competition but in order to vote you will have to sign up.

    We will compile a gallery of the entrants which will be available online. This gallery will remain as a permanent fixture to the site, and so you will be able to browse the pictures in the future. Please note, I am sure that there will be a rush in the last 24 hours before the end of this competition, therefore please don't wait until the last few hours if you can avoid it.

    The Voting
    Voting will take place here on these boards. Entries will be split into heats. The winner of each heat will go through to the next round until a winner is determined. Please note that entries will be placed into heats in the order in which they are submitted here. Note: having multiple entries from one participant will be spread.

    The voting period lasts 7 days.

    The voting results will be shown after the poll ends.

    Possible tiebreakers depend upon number of entries.

    Note that the ship and/or class name will be shown, anonymous upon request otherwise name will be shown.

    Additional Rules
    All decisions are final, any prizes are non-negotiable and the competition organizers reserve the right to remove competition entries or request that they are resubmitted or altered. We will hopefully never need this stuff, but just in case...

    That is it. Feel free to email me with any questions that you may have. Now, what are you doing still reading this? Get painting!

    Have fun!
