Sharp Practice Deployment Point Competition launched

Post by Richard » Thu May 19, 2016 10:18 am

Well, we talked about it and now we're going to do it. We all know that you can use an old sock or a mouldy turnip as a Deployment Point, but where's the fun in that? A nice vignette can serve to set the scene for a game; an opportunity for pathos, wit, comedy or tragedy. To encourage high quality Deployment Points we are launching a competition which will, we hope, set the benchmark.

Send us photos of two Deployment Points for your Army of choice and you could win £100 worth of Lard. Indeed, don't take my word for it, but read all about it here: the clarion call that is Lard Island News.

Lots of time to get cracking. We look forward to receiving your entries.

Wizzard indeed. One submission so far, so lots of opportunity to win. At present if you submitted a picture of a dog turd you'd come second.

That isn't a suggestion.

How long does this competition run?

EDIT: Never mind, I saw it. Hmmm, can I finish something cool by end of June...

Is that a challenge? Would a white one (which you never see anymore) come first due to rarity?

I'm thinking manure pile with some Grognards shovelling dung. Now to find suitable minis!

Well, I'm not sure my efforts will make the competition, but this is certainly inspiring!

Well, it was inspiring until I hit modellers block with my Prussian scout base. Three Volunteer Jaegers scouting ahead next to... What? What can I put next to them?

A signpost pointing to Waterloo in one direction and Ligny in the other?
