But how many pictures can you take of a single figure without it getting reptetive? I could understand it if it where a diorama or perhaps a large vignette.

8 pictures around the figure, 3 of the face from the sides and head on. then some some pictures of the kit, add some in progress and it becomes easy to make 15.

Just realized the rules don't say how many entries per person are allowed, unless I missed something.

If someone wishes to send more than one entry, that is fine as long as it is not from the same piece.

You take a picture of the paper with the figures behind it/them and then E-mail that picture.

Yes I have to say that maybe we have goofed in this regard. 15 is a lot to ask for a stand-alone figure. 8 might be more reasonable. Ironically if you went back to the first photo features I ran you would see we sometimes had just 5-10 photos of armor, planes, etc. I will talk to Darren about amending this requirement.
