All members of CDO can enter the league.
The league is an open one and you decide yourself which round/rounds you want to take part in.
You enter by sending in a team within an announced league round deadlines.
Participants should only take part if they are comfortable with the following rules:
The league will run for 8 rounds on a monthly basis. Each round and it deadlines will be announced here in the Brush Slave sub-forums.
Participants will enter by sending a picture of their ‘team’.
A team can consist of any numbers of miniatures as long as they clear looks like miniature gaming pieces �?" being anything form Warhammer Fantasy Battles to Battlefield Gothic, from Flames of War to Zombiecide
If more than one miniature is entered the team must follow a single, distinct theme. So you can�?Tt do a Skaven ratman joined by a Space Marine and Alexander the Great - not even with a portal scenery piece in the background �?" nor can it be hthark the unstoppable with a Man�?To�?TWar Pleagueship and an Epic Warlord Titan
All figures should look like appropriated gaming miniatures - but can be of any common miniature scale, genre, manufacturer etc.
If your team consist of more than one miniature your entry should be presented in a �?~group shot�?T of the entire team.
Use of a scenic setting is allowed but NOT required �?" it�?Ts the figure(s) that count.
All miniatures have to be newly painted �?" or at least not shown on-line before (on the internet). Pictures might be shared elsewhere 5 days after the public poll has been posted.
How to enter
All entries must be:
- sent as a Personal Message (PM) to �?oclam�?� with an URL that links to your entry
- sent as an email to brushslaveleague (a t) g m a i l dot c o m with an URL that links to your entry or have your entry (pictures) attached.
Your entry must meet a previously specified deadline (rounds will usually ends on the first Saturday in a month at 11:59 pm (GMT)).
Your entry message shall also include a team name/a entry title. What name is up to you �?" but could be a name that supports your “team�?Ts theme”.
Each entry should consist of �?" up till two images - not exceeding 800x800 pixels per picture. Your images can be smaller than this if you like - but not bigger.
All competitors must resize their own images before submitting them so they can be uploaded straight into the competition pages without any work by me. If you don�?Tt know how to resize images, please ask someone before the competition gets under-way.
Photos can be edited through picture editing software, and it�?Ts allowed to paste/insert thumbnails, small piece of text etc �?" as long as the team �?ostays in focus�?� and it doesn’t look like an advertisement. Therefore, it can not be allowed that you insert any logos, brands/company names, web-addresses, usernames, twitter/FB handles etc.
By entering you accept that your copyrighted work can be hosted on a shared - but private - Brush Slave photo album account at a free picture hosting site (aka clam�?Ts Photobucket account)
All figures must be completely painted, and all bases must be �?ofinished�?� (there are no basing standard, though).
ONLY pictures of finished models are accepted. �?~Work in progress�?T (WIP) shots are NOT allowed in you final entry, but feel free to post them in other sections of CDO after your team has been made public.
I won�?Tt make rules for what�?Ts �?opainted�?� and what�?Ts not (3 colours etc.), as we all know what a painted miniature looks like. If in doubt, paint it some more
There are no scale restrictions - but the figure should look like a gaming miniature and the scale should be consistent within the team. Not that you can�?Tt do an Ogre and a halfling on the same team, though.
League Points Table
We�?Tll keep it all open and run a public League Table based on the following point system.
At the end of round 8 we should have an overall winner. In case of a tie the placing is determined by 1) numbers of new teams, 2) winning history. Still a tie we’ll roll a d6.
Winner of the league will get a little trophy �?" the Golden Mad Painter �?" and a unpainted copy of the BSL limited Mad Painter. Depending on numbers of participants, quality of the league entries etc. I might throw in a couple more mad painters.
Each round, a number of matches will be held. In each match, two pre-determined participants (randomly) will face each other.
A team only takes part in the match-up procedure in the round it was entered for. So if you do 3 entries - you’ll face an opponent three times. No automatic carrying overs.
The winner will be determined by public voting (a Poll). Duration of voting will be 7 days.
The poll will include team name and name of the coach (CDO username) and present the picture(s) of the team entered.
The match up will be random but will be one a ‘first entered �?" first matched up’ - procedure.
Should we have an un-even number of participants in a round �?" last one entered won�?Tt take part, but will be first entry for any upcoming rounds.
There are three ways of earning points for the Brush Slave League:
1. Points for match result
2. Team entry bonus points
3. Theme round special bonus point
1. Points for match result
There will be a maximum of 10 points to be earned in each match. The points will be based on vote percentages.
95%+/5% or less) is a clear win/loss - score 10/0 points
85%+/15% or less) is a major win/major loss �?" score 8/2 points
60%+/40% or less) is a solid win/solid loss - score 7/3 points
55%+/45% or less) is a minor win/minor loss �?" score 6/4 points
More than 45% but less than 55% is a draw �?" score 5/5 points
2. Team entry Bonus
To make it worth just entering the league �?" each team entered will earn you a Team Entry Bonus based one team size. For each painted team member you�?Tll earn 1 point �?" with the maximum of 6 points.
Cavalry mounted miniatures (25x50mm base) or large miniatures - here called big 'uns (that’s Ogre-sized miniatures or bigger) appropriated based or big vehicles or war machines will earn you 2 point. You should claim this �?oBig �?~un�?� bonus when you submit your entry.
For bigger transport and ridden monsters (not necessarily based but bigger than the standard 50x50mm base) you�?Tll get one point for each additional (but always visible) crew member/rider - again claim this when entering.
Small scaled (15mm scaled or smaller) vehicles, vessels, ships, air planes, space ships etc. that plays the role of gaming pieces will, no matter base size, earn you 1 point each base (and if unbased, 1 point each miniature).
3. Theme Rounds Bonuses
Some of the 8 rounds will be �?~theme bonus rounds�?T, in which participants may enter a new team that follows a pre-determined theme. The theme will be announced in the open round announcement. If the team meets the theme, you will be awarded a special point bonus (+ the bonus of a entering a team). What bonus points can be earned can be found in the ‘round opening’ announcements.
Should you decide not following the pre-determined theme but still enters a team, you will �?" of course �?" get the normal �?oteam entry bonus�?�.
